Nothing like a deadline!

I'm so good about fulfilling my swap commitments; I don't usually sign up for any if I think I can't manage it.  But September got away from me in a BIG way.  First Irene...which caused havoc everywhere.  And then the delayed start of the school year.  To add insult to injury, I was completely overwhelmed with my teaching many needy children, so little time.

I have two swaps that needed to have art uploaded by today...and I DID IT!!!  The following are for a Zetti swap and an owl themed swap.  It was so nice to be able to do these, even if I was racing the clock!

A FREE day to do some art!!!  I thought I'd never see my studio again the way the school year has started. Home today for Rosh Hashanah, and spent some quality time making this mail art for a swap.  There was no theme to this, but I chose Halloween because I love the holiday.

Found my webbing spray paint from a hundred years ago and had fun with that!  I'm not a stamper, but I love these Halloween stamps.  What an incredibly relaxing afternoon.

Dearest sweet friends...

I really haven't fallen off the face of the earth.. The new school year has started and, being a kindergarten and first grade reading teacher in a high poverty school, the work is just overwhelming.  I do plan on getting back to my art as soon as I can breathe!  Perhaps this week sometime???
