a week in the life-day four

Today was a half day at school, and also the class' fall parties. One parent wanted her sons birthday cupcakes to be seperate from the fall cupcakes so she asked if we could do birthday cupacakes in Art Class istead of in his classroom where the fall party would be later.
I said of course!
Hence, the cupcakes :) Im nice like that :)

Did you know that they made cupcakes to look like cakes now?
One of my second graders asked if they could take a picture of me with my phone...again, of course!!

nice job kid :) But, you can see that I wore my awesome glow-in-the-dark skelton shirt from RVA today :)

While everyone else was partying, I fold some paper cranes to add to my flock in the hallway.

and added my brand new markers into the marker buckets :)

School was out at about noon so that teacher's could have a half day to do Report Cards and get their conferences scheduled. I got my report cards done last week :) Again, Im cool like that!
So I...

cleaned out my supply closet,

attempted to figure out the kiln (no luck)

spray painted some of the Louise Nevelson assemblage sculptures,

saved all of the LPS animals from their fate of spray paint!!

wrote out my plans for next week,

and took a picture of one of my favorite little nooks in my classroom to show you :)
BTW- I have been jouranling a lot lately and have been forgetting to show you my pages!
Here you go:

This afternoon, I have been crocheting a giant granny square :) Becky, from Strumpet's Crumpets, is making one and I was inspired! I decided this could be another way (minus binding) to make an afghan :) Perfect! Although, last night when I started it, it was dim and I thought I was using a chocolate brown and a gold...

Turns out I am using an eggplant color and a burnt orange. It's looks OK together though. It'll do. I think it is going to end up as a Christmas gift anyway :)
Tonight I have been crocheting some more, and working on Adam's Halloween costume. He's going to be a broken heart (get it?) I also went to Target and picked up some things we were needing and some goodies to send in Happy Mail :)
Alright, that is it for tonight!
