It started snowing today around 12:30 and the kids just could not control themselves! SO, we went outside and had a snowball fight. I made a mistake of chunking one at one of my students. Then the fight was on! Needless to say, they ganged up on me and I was soaked including snowballs down my back!

This is the house after school. I am sure there is more now!

Just beautiful!

Pre-K Easel

Jill was so patient with me, because I have had this easel since Christmas break. When I saw this adorable owl on Endless Possibilities, I knew how I wanted to paint it.

Chalkboard paint was put on the other side so the kids or Mrs. Yeager could draw or write!

I know I haven't posted in forever, but I have not given up my love of painting! We have been out of town for a couple of weekends, so that put me a little behind. And, I have been reading the Twilight series! Oh my goodness! I told myself, along with others, that I would not read that vampire mess, but after the girls filled me in about the movie that was on the other day, I decided to give it a go. I am getting closer to the end of the first book, and looking forward to the next one!
The below pics are of a desk Mary Lindsey asked me to paint. I always get into the project before I realize that I did not take a "before" picture. I had already sanded the desk down and was about to start painting when I remembered I needed pictures. The desk was a peach color before the transformation.

Mary wanted blue, brown, and leopard print. She provided the brown and a pillow with the blue color on it. I tried to match the blue the best I could. I always forget that when the sealer goes on, it darkens the color a bit.

I think it turned out pretty good!

Bailey's chair is a baby shower gift painted to match the bedding with an added zebra pattern!

Jaymasen's chair is also a shower gift. Her chair is painted to match her bedding. I so hope the colors match the fabric. I only had pictures of swatches from the website to look at. Both chairs match bedding from modpeapod.com. If you are looking for baby bedding, check out that website. Cute, Cute stuff!

Finally, I love this saying from Dr. Seuss! I believe it is going to hang in a teacher's room. The colors look much better in person! Hope you like it, Rachel!
