Bad Blogger I know!
I know how frustrating it is to go to blogs that I enjoyed visiting and it's the same post from the day before and worse yet when it's weeks old. So sorry for being such a bad blogger lately.
I've been busy and trying to keep on top of my NEW YEAR goals of being organized and ready for my classes so that I'm not rushing at the last minute to do it all. Well, I've managed to be more organized but not as organized as I had hoped ~ hence, the delay in posts.

I have to apologize to my blogging friends too for being so lame at getting around to your blogs. I pop in more often than you realize but have had very little time lately to read and leave comments. WILL get around and visit this week and LET YOU KNOW that I've visited!

It was so nice to get back into my routine of teaching classes and I was so excited to see all of
my students since I took a bit of time off during the holidays. It was great to catch up and see what they've all been up to.

Two fabulous classes on Saturday ~ we painted strawberries and veggies.




I had two new students in this class ~

Carolyn ~ she has taken paint classes before but this was her first with me and she jumped right it and WOW ~ painted beautifully!

Cathy was my other new student and unlike Carolyn she hasn't painted before. She was nervous at first seeing out finished project but double WOW! She did a beautiful job didn't she?!

Next we painted a vegetable medley on a wooden



Monday Paint Class ~ This morning we painted the wooden box with Seashells, a starfish and a seahorse! It was great catching up with my morning crew after my holiday break.
This was such a FUN project and everyone really seemed to enjoy it ~ and their projects turned out FABULOUS!







Too much to get done before my class this evening and not enough time to get it all done so I'm off! Have an outstanding week.

Hi Sandy,
Great pictures of all the great painting projects.
Don't worry, I'm sure everyone is busy from time to time.
Post when you can, and visit when you can.
Have a great week,

I love how you show the pictures of your students and how as the "teacher" you showcase and celebrate their work.

That's the mark of a great leader!

Welcome back,

Oh Girl! I so understand. Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. Which is good. And bad. I don't want blogging to BE my life (although sometimes it seems that way LOL)even though it's something I truly enjoy. I'm still trying to catch up myself after Christmas and then my Mom and Aunt's visit last week.

Great projects for your class.

Ha! Up until the part about the classes and painting, I could have written this same post! I, too, have been a bad blogger of late and haven't posted much of anything. I've been visiting a little here and there, but haven't been doing much commenting either. Sometimes it's been almost a relief to go to some of my favorite blogs and see that they haven't posted anything least then I didn't have to feel bad about not leaving a comment. lol
Hope we ALL get back to normal SOON!

Great projects! Love all of the different paintings!

Welcome back! If blogging becomes an obligation and a chore it is no fun at all. You post when you are inspired and visit when you can! At least that is my motto!

Your students are brilliant!

I love the berries! Your students are so lucky! I hope they know that!
