The Starry Night sweater

Where did this month go? Snow storms and working on NBPTS entries is my answer. For a little creative break I have been working on needle felting 'The Starry Night' onto a sweater. I've had this idea for a while; it took forever to find the right WOOL sweater at Goodwill. Some people have 'Goodwill luck' finding clothing - I am not one of them. I have found many great picture books though, even some older Caldecott medal winners to add to my collection. At present, my creative output will remain minimal until I'm done with NBPTS. Happy soon-to-be Spring!

Snow~Day #2, NBPTS

Today was a great snow~day. I had coconut, ginger, cashew granola made, orchids and chickens watered and the wood box filled with firewood - all before 7:30 am. I spent the rest of the day working on my National Board for Professional Teaching Standards portfolio. Tea mug in hand... it was a 'can do' kind of day.
