So after 4 years of being out of the classroom, I started this year with a little trepidation and lots of enthusiasm as I walked into my grade 7 class as a full time teacher again! It's been a whirlwind term - does teaching ever happen slowly - but it's felt so good to be back in the classroom!
My next step is to get back into my art again...as this was another thing that was put on the back burner last year. It seemed that every time I sat down to draw/paint/tangle the inspiration disappeared. So I visited my old friend The Diva and got myself tangling again! I couldn't have started at a better time with one of my favourite tangles -Shattuck.
The funniest thing is, that I used it on the walls to liven up the grade 7 passage (with a few other doodly-tangles of course!

|I even dug out a WIP from a year ago which I hadn't started putting together and have just finished the edging!|
All in all, it's been a good start to the year and I'm enjoying myself so far!
