Last day . . . . for a bit

     Ah, tis sad.  It is my last day of spring break.  Last day to sleep in.  Last day to draw and create all day long if I want.  But on the up side, I only have 7 more Mondays until summer.  Now that seems hard to believe.  This year has flown by.  I think it is because this year has been so exciting and enjoyable.  Every day has been so much fun.  Oh, of course there are moments.  After all I teach children so everything is not super and sunshiny.  My feelings about this year have been different.  I had a challenging year last year and it plodded along.  Every day was a struggle.  I made my mind up this year to face everything (yes, everything) with a positive frame of mind.  Sometimes, I will it admit, it wavered.  Sometimes I had to "fake" the attitude until it took hold of the day, but it has worked.  I can now only hope and pray that this job is what I am doing next year.  I loved being in the classroom, but I have found a spot that I can say beats that.  I love seeing different groups throughout the day and the change of momentum it brings.  Enough about that and on to some last minute "playtime".
      Every Inchie Monday's word was gold.  So I pulled out some new markers that had a really great gold shine - which doesn't show in the picture - and made my lucky pot of gold.
     With some extra time to play I decided to do another of Ben Kwok's templates.  I love eagles.  Last year my class and I got all caught up watching an "eagle-cam" and seeing the babies hatch and grow.  It was so fascinating that we collected money - nickels and dimes - to send away and "adopt" an eagle. 
     I have to admit, I am really happy with this page.  I tangled the template then cut it out and placed him on some scrapbook paper I had.  He looks so grand there.  I rarely frame anything, but he could be begging to be hung on my wall. 
     Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great week.

  6. Glad you have enjoyed your spring break, and glad that you got time to enjoy it in an artsy way. I wondered if anyone would do a pot of gold and I am glad that you were the one who did it. I super love the eagle, so regal and adorable, definitely needs to be framed.
