Curly Girl's birthday gift to me! I love it!!! You can click on the photo to enlarge it

Now it is back to school so we sadly say good bye to Miss Margie for the school year!

I wish she had more time to take Margie's art class but her academic classes take priority.

Here is Curly Girl's first project of the summer. She choose this picture to enter into a contest...which we later found out she did not qualify for! At any rate, we think Bella is gorgeous......

Here is the full picture....

She looks super fat but the horse in the calender WAS super fat (and the photographer took the photo from a weird angle.) That being said, Curly Girl was upset when we said the horse looked 'like a tick' and promptly got the calender to defend herself! HA!

an otter......

Yesterday at work I had a VERY nice KNOW how I love nice surprises!

I had been asked by the art teacher to come see her in class.
I went in and she handed me this year's financial report for the parish.

It was opened to a pretty picture.....that Curly Girl had drawn!

I was soooooo excited. A picture she had drawn had been selected to be shown in the report...which is a pretty big deal.
I thanked the teacher and told her I couldn't WAIT to see the original and have it framed.
Then said told me there was ANOTHER surprise! She had submitted the picture to an art exhibit being held in the Governor's mansion. The exhibit showcases art from all the schools in the state.

Guess what? (you know already...right?)

Curly Girl's was ACCEPTED!

She told me that you never know when (or if) you'll get the original back so that is why she gave me a copy of the report.

Now we wait to find out WHEN the exhibit is so we can all truck over there...and see it in person.

So...forgive the picture of the picture (taken at night)...but I'm so proud of her.

Congratulations sweetie!

In art class, Curly Girl was to create a mask out of a milk jug.

She created this:

It creeps me out.....but it is EXACTLY how she envisioned it.
