A new craft project I picked up this winter: Zentangle mugs.   I did some research on Pinterest and around other places (including The Cozy Old Farmhouse) before starting my first zentangle mug project. Then I just dove right in, making myself a mug with my initial “R” on it, so that if it turned out really badly then it was just an experiment and I didn’t lose anything! It actually turned out really nicely, and I was very pleased. I have made about 12 of them now!   Several people have asked me about the process […]

What does Integrated Arts in a Fine Arts school look like?

0 comments June 10, 2011

From Day 1, BudBud (our middle child and oldest son) has obviously been wired differently. He lives and breathes creativity and artistic capacity. He’s wired differently than the other kiddos, and is very similar to myself in that regard. BudBud sees life in a different way than most other kiddos. He has always described every day things in very unique ways.  And he’s the one I’m always saying, “it’s time to go – put away the colors/legos/blocks” – he’s always creating things and drawing non-stop. So when it came time to put him into school, […]
