Happy Birthday to the wonderful @mrshamisartroom ! It was absolutely fabulous getting to meet you in person finally 😄 I know you'll be celebrating the right way, with tons of rainbows and happiness! Happy happy birthday! 🎉🎈🎂
Last night I went with my family and Sam to the Palette Bar and Grill located inside the Indigo Hotel in downtown Madison for my birthday dinner! The food was delicious, the drinks were very colorful, and the company was the best! The staff at the Palette made my birthday extra special with a complimentary dessert and lots of compliments to my outfit 😊
I may have stolen the photo from @nascoarts but I couldn't resist! 😄 " What do you get when you mix art teachers, art materials and Debi West together? Two hours of creativity and awesomeness!! #nascoarts "
Living my most saturated life ❤🌈 I had a great time this evening with @nascoarts and tomorrow's Teacher Celebration Day keynote speaker @dewestudio creating some mixed media art while enjoying pizza and the company of some amazing art teachers! 😊
Weekly progress update! (Currently in progress 😝) So here's a different side of my Teacher Stool. I'm working on the last steps, the crayons! Enjoy the photos of me in my natural, summer habitat; my living room/art studio.
Yesterday Sam and I adventured to @olbrichgardens for their Blooming Butterflies! Sam had been wanting to go and I used to volunteer at Olbrich Botanical Gardens many years ago as a child. I used to teach people about the moths that they used to bring in for their annual bonanza 🦋
I'm sure you all have been seeing the amazing makes of Andrew @elementaryarts and if you haven't, you need to give him a follow. From his organizational skills, to his rainbow wholesomeness, to his artist quotes and classroom book recommendations, his Insta is an art teacher's paradise! Thank you so much for gifting me two of your amazing creations Andrew! They really are the closest thing I've seen to perfection 👌🌈❤
I got to meet a very important tiny human today! ❤💙❤ So the last two weeks I've been working on my Teacher Stool, but when I found out this little man had finally decided to come out I put it on hold and made him his first painting! This is James Allen Gowey and he's the beautiful baby boy of my School Wife @11becky07 👶💙
Progress on my Teacher Stool! I purchased this stool exactly 1 week ago at Goodwill for $5. It was covered in decoupage and 2-5 layers of paint. After some work these last few days I'm now down to a blank canvas that's almost ready to paint! 🖌🎨🖍✏
