Short and Sweet

This months blog is just like the title says, short and sweet!  Things on my work end have been extremely stressful due to the big honchos, but I won't get into any of that.  The arctic blast was a warm welcome so to speak because it gave us two much needed days away from the stress. I took advantage of this by relaxing as much as possible. I read a short story, got some inspiration for my current work in progress and of course, painted!  

Ever tried Paint by Sticker books?  I love them!  I actually find them relaxing. However, if you are a little OCD about things, then this probably isn't for you. LOL  Some of the stickers are very tiny and not easy to fit on there perfectly.  To me, that doesn't matter.  It's a mosaic, so lines are acceptable. 😁

I've also been practicing a painting I might try with my students. I came across this lesson on Pinterest and loved the looks of it.  Here is the link if you are interested.

This is my finished painting. The colors are actually a lot darker, I just couldn't get a good picture. 

What hobbies do you have to help to de-stress?  What have you been working on lately? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section or find me on Facebook. 

Oh and I can't forget, today is World Read Aloud day!!!  I am all for that!  My book, Into the Ocean, even made a book list created by Sharks4Kids. I'm so honored to be included!  Check it out and some other Fintastic books here
