Painting and cute baby decor!


I recently started giving painting lessons to a friend of a friend named Laura. Laura introduced me to Etsy.com. I had heard of it before (through BFF Elysa), but I had never explored it. I found so many cute baby decor ideas that I can make myself!! I posted a few of the ideas on my tumblr site.

Since I'm giving painting lessons to Laura, I am inspired to do my own painting as well. Other BFF Tanja gave me lots and lots of oil paints!! In return, I have to make her a painting. I finally started the painting the other day. I must say...I wish I were making it for me :-) I hope she likes it! I'm only half-way finished though.

Profile books sent to agency

I finally got one of those Priority boxes with a flat rate for the profile books. Last week when our caseworker called to see how things were going, I told her I would be mailing the profile books soon. Her response was, "Oh, there's no rush." No rush?? Really?? Absolutely there's a rush!! I was completely irritated by her response. How rude!

Christmas break is almost here. I'm looking forward to the break, but I'm also going to miss my students. My one problem child was removed, and now that class is a totally different class. It's quiet pleasant and wonderful to not have all the drama anymore. I love teaching again! Crazy how one student can turn a person into a such a meanie.\

I also have a link now on the Dizzy Winding Road blog to subscribe to my posts via email :-) I would hate for you to miss a single post!! ;-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, y'all!!!
