White Christmases Erie Pennsylvania style!! You might have heard, but this week we had over 5 feet of snow drop in a couple of days time. It put a big damper on the holiday for a lot of families. For us, we just sat and watched it snow. We broke all sorts of records and it puts us at 103" of snow already for this winter! Just in case you wonder what that looks like . . . .
There is the pretty side of it . . . .
And then there is the not so pretty side of it. . . . .
Sooooo . . . .
I took some days off this weekend to spend exclusively in my studio and it looks like the weather is going to cooperate since we are suppose to get a foot more this weekend.
surprised when that really wasn't what the book was about. It was a hodge - podge of stories from his life that spoke to life lessons and his views on the academic world. There were some wisdoms thrown in there on how to critique and encourage, but what I found so fascinating AND entertaining is his down to earth look at his life. Also, I love the little inserts of stories of inspiring teachers. I loved the book and I'm sure I'll listen again. I mean, its like he sitting there talking to you!! I would recommend it to anybody who teaches, mentors, or parents! Plus since most people found Tim Gunn's Life Little Lessons much better, I'm going to read that one too. Too bad that isn't in audio form too!
So hopefully by next week I'll have something new from my studio to show since I got fabric, thread, Gelli Plates AND a new Rowenta Iron for Christmas!!
What Have You Been Up to Creatively?
