i can't even tell you how much i am looking forward to summer weather... it has been a week full of rain, wind, hail and storms in colorado. ugh. it got my mood a little blue, but things are looking up after rain flurries today! I WANT SUMMER! heat, sun, long days :) i love and want all of it!!! Even though i was depressed with our weather, the yard loved it. our dirt patches are transforming into lush green growth!! i will have to post before and after pics when we are ready to take down the fence, it's really incredible! (but not quite ready for pup traffic yet)
Jared officially did his end of year check out today! He came home and introduced himself as "summer jared" lol I know he is really happy to have completed his first year teaching - and looking forward to summertime bliss! Also found out he will be going back next fall and taking on more classes - he will not only have his 7th and 8th grade art but also a 6th grade tech. class and his own homeroom group of kiddos. pretty exciting stuff :) For now he is getting ready to do a summer camp through UNC called creative spaces - it is 2 weeks long and the kids will be doing collaborative clay projects! couldn't be a better medium :)
one of jared's students gave him an end of year treat, how sweet is this cake?!?
pretty cute stuff if you ask me!
I have been in the studio just about non-stop. i reorganized and cleaned, mixed three glazes, did 2 glaze firings, and threw a batch of pots... in the last week :) and i am so excited to show off some pictures taken with my new graduated vinyl backdrop!! it is makes every shot look a little more professional, it is just what i needed to kick up our pics a notch! 30 bucks well spent on our professional image ;)
i still need to work on the lighting and framing.... but it is a start :) can't believe our first show is less than 3 weeks away!!! and even bigger news; I am applying to get into madison and main gallery the first week of june! i wasn't just talking goals last month... I'm doin them. makes me a little nervous, but in a good exciting way :)
we wish all a happy beginning of summer! life is beautiful <3
hugs & love
