To blog or not to blog

Forgive me readers for I have sinned. It’s been six months since my last blog post.  Yeah, yeah, I know, this isn’t news here. When I look back on my last 5 years or so, I realize that I often get side-tracked by life and I stop blogging for months at a time. And every single time, I feel bad about abandoning my blog. This time, I actually debated about keeping or deleting the blog. But in the end, when it came time to renew my WordPress subscription for this site, I decided to go for it and keep the … Continue reading To blog or not to blog

Tangrams

First things first… I’m having computer problems these days so this will be my last blog post until said problems are resolved but you can always see my daily art on Facebook or Instagram. Second, even though my blog title says tangrams, I’m starting with a mandala that I made yesterday. Third, here are some tangrams my students made during our fine motor activity. I printed the shapes from this website on cardstock and cut only around the square they formed. I had the students work on their scissor skills by cutting the pieces on their own. I noticed that … Continue reading Tangrams

Street theatre festival

Tonight was the first night of our local street theatre festival which occurs annually. I try to go see at least one show each year. This time, I was able to see 5 shows already. Of the 5, I really liked the first, a synchronized performance of two “supermarket cashiers”, and the last, a combination of tango and fire. I least enjoyed the improv show and found interesting the street performance (4 people dressed in black with yellow lines, literally performing as a moving street), and the orchestra of crows which you can see a bit in this low quality … Continue reading Street theatre festival

Happy New Year

Hello friends! My blogging muscle is a little sore so forgive my clumsiness but lo and behold! I’m back! Yes, I have decided that 2016 is the year to bring back blogging. I know that some of my friends miss it too and hopefully this will encourage them to get back to the blogosphere with me. 2015 was a busy year, as they usually are. Some bad stuff but a lot of good stuff. In fact, mostly good. I moved at the end of June to a bigger apartment which I love. I’ve yet to organize my studio but my … Continue reading Happy New Year

Life

Life. It can change in the blink of an eye or it can take its sweet time. A lot of things have changed in the past few years. And many things are still the same. I have both changed and stayed the same. I know that I cannot keep doing things the same way I did 5 years ago. And that’s ok. I am ok. I want to keep this blog and to post again. But I am giving myself permission to post when I want and about what I want. I know this is all very vague and I’m … Continue reading Life

Welcome 2015

The last few years haven’t been very good for this blog. But it doesn’t mean that I haven’t been creative. This past year might not have been my most creative one but I still managed to play in my art journal a few times outside of my mixed media classes (which I love attending!) I also got sucked into the Rainbow Loom madness, mostly because of the students I was working with at the time. But other than that and a bit of doodling, not much has been accomplished in the arts and crafts section of my life. It is … Continue reading Welcome 2015

News from the artist’s den

Almost 4 months since I last wrote… So much for getting back to the blogging habit… I have no excuse, as always. The school year ends in less than 2 months and let me tell you, I’m really looking forward to my summer vacation! Not that I have anything planned. And not that I don’t like my job. Because I do. Love my job, that is. But it has been a trying year at work. Art wise, I’ve been creating in small bursts. My mother and I attend an art journaling club every month (except for this month) where we … Continue reading News from the artist’s den
