When I first started blogging it felt kind of weird to put all my best art projects out their for everyone else to use. But, I did it. I was tired of the culture of coveting ideas. You know those teachers in your schools who won't share ideas with new teachers. Hey, we were all new once and when I started teaching there weren't any blogs. Those few good lessons that art teachers gave to me I cherished, studied them, tried to figure out what made them work, and tried to think like that when creating my own lessons. I will never forget those who shared.
What happened next was really surprising. Blogging became like a well. Every time I'd share an idea on the blog a new and better one would come and take its' place. Like a well draining and filling constantly with new ideas.
When I explained this to my best friend (my mom:), she put it in perfect perspective. She said, "Art teachers really didn't have anywhere to share the work they were doing with the world before. It was like having a house, decorating it beautifully, then never having anyone over." It's true, so welcome to my art room blog. Have a look around, please feel free to use, alter, any ideas here because that's where we get more from!
If you do get inspired by an idea here (first it probably wasn't my idea to begin with) please comment about your translation of the project or link me up!
I love this community and thanks for all your support during the blog "redecorating" too!

Please don't ask why there is a picture of a pina colada on this post (just a pic I took this week at my husband restaurant). . . but if anyone want to take a try at why blogging is like a Pina Colada, be my guest!
