What the Art Teacher Wore #211

I need y'all to say a lil prayer for me...as we are heading into a FULL week next week! That's right. While some of y'all teacherin' friends work a partial week, we are in it to win it, truckin' all the way until 10am on Friday morning. If I make it if the kids make it that long. Every last one of us is runnin' on fumes and hot chocolate at this point. BUT...we still makin' some masterpieces!
None of which I've had two seconds to blog about...so that's super awesome. My goal is to post a bunch of winter-themed lessons on this here blog super soon. AND I do believe I've been saying that for months but things have been cray around here. I'm inching closer to being finished with my new book (preorder here, eep!!) and having some time to actually create and catch up on this here blog is quickly becoming a reality. I'm so happy for it! In the meantime, if you follow me on IG, then you've seen a lotta these lessons already. I've even shared the details in my stories. But the plan is to create real live videos for you to share with your kiddos over my break. So...stay tuned. 


 One project I'm stoked to share are these here super cute first grade penguins. The kids and I are loving this lesson and learning so much! Bingo daubers were used for both this lesson and the third grade abstract name design shown above. 
 Since kindergarten is wrapping up their snowmen this week, I had to wear this here snowman dress, right? I found it on Amazon and it was both inexpensive and super cute, if I do say so. And I just did. But not as cute as these guys...
 These were all lookin' pretty adorable but adding the chalk around the edge and to the cheeks totally took it to another level. 
 That night, my good buddy Tamara hosted a craft night...and I made this cute lil toy soldier! She is the most amazing host. We had a wonderful dinner WHILE creating. Thankfully she had the templates for the solider all cut out so it was just a matter of picking my colors, tracing and cutting. She even had a frame for each one of us. I was pretty excited to finish...and have him match my bonus room so well. 
 Another week, another tree skirt. It's the most tree skirtin'est time of the year!
These second grade chalked background for an upcoming Wolf Kahn-inspired landscape has me really excited. Yet another lesson to share with y'all soon!
I have found that all the shops have the best tacky holiday sweaters right now! Target is where I scored this lil number and I love it. 
 Speakin' of love, that's what I feel when I stare at these fourth grade beauties. Stay tuned on this one, we'll soon be adding these to our snow globes. 
And would you look at that! We got all fancy for our nephew's wedding this weekend and I just had to share...we clean up pretty good.

  1. What a nice post. I have found it extremely useful and informative. Thanks for sharing. Talking about DIY recently I came across an amazing DIY guide called "Ted's Wood Working.". It is quite simple, cheap and extremely useful and effective. The artwork that is made with it are simply outstanding. Therefore I would request everyone who has a knack for DIY to try it out at once and see the result by themselves.

  2. OMG you are so fun! I came across your photo in a Google search for 'kitsch Christmas' or something like that and I had to see what was behind all that awesomeness. I am officially a fan!
    I scheduled a pic of one of your christmas tree skirt skirts to come out on my new Facebook page for all things kitschy. I hope you don't mind!
