So, I’ve taken on a new project. It’s going to keep me super busy for awhile. I’ll be combining my new role as an elementary art teacher with some of the social/emotional resources of RECESS and yoga and movement and self regulation/awareness tools/talks in general. This weekend I get to continue my education, with Trauma informed training @ EYS. I really enjoy creating experiences for kids. It’s fun to be creating & learning & adapting. Life is funny. I know my grandmothers would be super happy and excited for me. They’ve both been with me so much throughout this process. Things keep coming together and manifesting. Who knows where it will all lead. I’m feeling all the transition feels. Good things are happening. I’ll do my best. Wish me luck! #artteacher #newyear #firstyearteacher #artastherapy #yogaplusart #artandyoga #create #fullcircle #makesomething #growwhereyouareplanted #manifest #project #staycalm #oneboxatatime #elementaryartteacher

Absolutely awesome time in the shop today! These raised panel doors were so fun to build. There is something so satisfying about piecing one of these together 😊 -

Working on future shirt designs is bringing poop..er, excuse me, I mean DUNG doodling into my life. Anybody have any ideas about who this dung beetle and dung ball will be paired with? I'll give you a hint....a word in that question is this bird's stereotypical call. 🦉

Last year I built #jasonvoorhees for #halloween This year I am building a giant Robot. Inspired by the 50s and 60s sci-fi movies I grow up watch. So here’s it’s head. More to come. #giantrobot #scifi #propbuilding #propbuilder #scifirobot #50sscifi #art #maker #makesomething #halloween2018 #getoutthere

In the office today and decided to squat on @martideans desk for a few minutes between meetings and look at what I found. She musta knew I was coming and that I’m a super tool catalog nerd. 🤓. #instamachinist #makeanything #makesomething #thedevilisinthedetails #haasome #machinelikeagirl #machinist #cncwest #cncmilling #cncmachine #cncmachining #cncmachinist

It’s easy to sand in the place where you are with my @ridgidpowertools sander! This post is also a tribute to one of my favorite #woodworkers David @makesomethingtv ! #woodworking #teamridgid #makesomething #jbwoodcraft

Teaching her about how form changes. Mom told her a story of star and then to make it more interesting we made a star faced monster, which got us excited and we were happily converting a tiny star into a big star monster! We salvaged 13 balloons post Independence Day celebrations, and this is one of those. We have been reusing the same balloons for lots of fun games. We hate to thrash useful material and miss out on a chance to make fun games. And of course, we would hate these balloons to land in the already thrash filled oceans and destroy some more life out there (as of today they are staying out of trash and being useful). #toddleractivities #diygames #scienceforkids #montessori #motorskills #pretendplay #toysfromtrash #reducereuserecycle #makesomething #kidsactivities #sciencefun #materials

This popped into my head yesterday as something @oliviajgriffin might like for the upcoming holiday season. It may turn out to also be the first non-electronic format thing I try to sell. Talking about it to someone in the field yesterday I may have too much overhead in cabinet-grade plywood, 3 coats of lacquer, and all the sanding (this thing was such a pain to sand!). So turns out I may be pricing myself out of ever being able to sell a single one, but I'll make a few for our house anyway.

Grandma taught me how to do stained glass today! My pattern wasn’t exactly perfect and I definitely need some more practice soldering but I’m so happy with my cute honeycomb and can’t wait to hang it up in my new place after the move to boulder next week. Now here’s my question- does anyone have any experience with using laser cutting to help with the stained glass process? I know you can’t cut through glass but could you use laser cutting to score it?

Voice student and budding performer Melody came all the way to us from Japan for lessons for 6 weeks! She took voice lessons with Elizabeth at our Silver Lake studio 3 times a week, did open mics, recorded a demo, and even did a songwriting & lyric class. We’re excited to see where she goes!

Do you know the STEM behind obstacle course races? These kids do! Students in the Conquer the Gauntlet Camp built obstacles, trained on the course, conducted science experiments, and even video chatted with the engineers from America Ninja Warrior!
The last picture is of the "Crow's Nest," which the students designed themselves!

While yes this could pass as a prop from several movies/games, this one is from Fallout 4 in the Far Harbor DLC. Man I love Fallout.
Copy and paste the link below to see how it was made.

Got my hands on some 1920 or so lumber. Going to make a entry bench out of it.

I never meant to be a florist. But sometimes the universe puts you on a path and you can’t ignore it. My heart and soul have been so happy working at @blossomsfloristeureka. The owner, Denise, has been a constant stream of awesome positive energy. She pushes me to create everyday and to keep working even when I feel like it’s all going to fail. So it’s very exciting to announce a workshop in collaboration with @blossomsfloristeureka!! Want to learn how to make your own hanging planter and design your own bouquet to go with it? Because we can do that! The workshop will be on Sept 6th at 6pm at 103 5th Eureka CA. $50 per person. Please call 707-798-6002 for more information or to sign up! .

It’s been rough getting back into the groove this week after multiple weekends on vacation and spending lots of time with friends and family! Now it’s already August 14. Like, what?!
.
Giving myself grace and slowly easing into my “routine” again, not that I ever have any real routine these days! 🤷🏼‍♀️ But I’m so thankful that I spent the last five weeks with some amazing women in the Empowered You program by @devan_danielle because now I know how to recharge and get back to my best self 💕
.
I almost said happy Monday and then realized that it’s already Tuesday so there’s that.
.
I’ll be needing some more coffee 😂
