Hi there everyone! As usual, the weekend buzzed right by but it was a good one. As you might be able to tell, I was getting in a little relaxing on the couch and trying to read (Martha's Vineyard, Isle of Dreams by Susan branch), but someone had other ideas. :)
I spent a good chunk of Sunday in my happy place, and I was really happy to be able to do that.
Here's one of the journal pages I worked on. I am linking this journal page for Valerie's interesting challenge at Art Journal Journey, light and darkness.
At this time year it seems I drive to work in the dark and drive home in the dark. I do miss the sunshine.
This is a bird's eye view of my morning commute, although it sounds like my Monday morning is just going to be plain messy with snow.
I like the way my little black blobs for cars came out. I think they work!
I also got kitchen creative this weekend. My department at work had our holiday get together Saturday night. We had a lot of laughs and some yummy food. As it was a potluck, I brought cake.
It was my coworker Deb's birthday, so I made her birthday cake. One of the woman I work with is gluten free-,so I made my first gluten free cake, and my first carrot cake too.
Deb is another biology teacher (in fact she is right across the hall from me), so I decorated with some DNA strands.
I'm counting down until my break and another week with crazy kids begins. Not that I blame them. I think we are all ready for the holiday down time.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
