fabulous giraffes and a new look!

These have been hanging in my classroom for a couple of months in honor of our recent visit from author Debbie Clement....the borders are cut pieces of painted paper which I just LOVED!
You may also see that my blog has just undergone a makeover! It was about time...the Blogger template just didn't fit the theme or overall direction of the blog. If you are looking for a blog makeover, I highly suggest Casey at Sugar Studios! Casey "saw" my vision and carried it through...which suits me, my classroom, and my lessons MUCH better!
How much longer do you have kids? I am in a panic now and will see my students only twice more this year. I have a graveyard of clay projects (projects with no names, pieces and parts that fell or broke off...grrrrr....) that I'm sifting through and trying to repair things so I can get projects out before the very last day of school.

My kiln is on overload (and so am I! I think my back is going to break!!!) so I think I'm going to give her a night off. Rest up, on again tomorrow!

ALSO, don't forget to link up to my clay linky party-- I'm in need of some new clay projects!


  1. These giraffes are so cute.
    I love the colors and patterns.

    I love the new look of your blog.

  2. Yah! I love the new look too. Very nice!

  3. Love the Giraffes', love, love, LOVE the painted paper borders! The new look on your blog is really great. Did you paint the artwork and then photograph it?

    1. I didn't! I had Casey (the designer) have free reign ;)

  4. I love the new look of your blog. Thanks for sharing the name of your blog designer.

  5. I love those giraffes! So adorable. Definitely going to pin it. Also liked the way the children wrote their names. So creative.
