Daily Face: NFA November 25th

My Daily Face portrait is of me in my High School yearbook. My friends mother called me "that Blue Girl" I don't ever think she called me by my first name. I really liked my maiden last name, Blue. When I look at my yearbook its funny to look at the hair styles everyone was trying to have the layered flip.

The Trees Know

And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it. Ezekiel 17:24


 Just playing around with some blank calendar pages.

Since I was not at work I decided to draw pictures from my yearbook Class of 1981. When I was looking through my yearbook, I was wondering why my picture was not showing in the list of last names that begin with the letter A. Then it dawned on me. I was not married my last name was Blue it did not begin with my married name, lol!

Just Playing Around

I was just playing around with an old illustration I made a while ago. Thought I would add color to it. I don't know if I'm finished with it yet.
It feels good not to think about work for a whole week.

Daily Face: November 20th

I really like the smile on this student. Although its not a perfect smile it gives him character. No school for a whole week. I hope I get lots of reading in.

Daily Face: November 18th, 19th

The Pink Tutu

No daily face today. I did not go to work because of my big exam. Which I am happy to announce that I passed with a 92!
This pink tutu and black & white scarf came from a gift teabag from my friend Jackie. I had opened it on my desk and I thought I will draw a picture around it.

Daily Face: November 17th

I had a hands on exam today. Of course I froze. I thought I would just have to show that I knew what I was doing, not tell them. But I made it. Tomorrow I have a really big exam, that I'm not quite ready for.

Daily Face: November 16th

I faced Monday with my happy face. It was a good day.

What's Blooming!

My rose bush pushed out a few more blooms. Of course I had to cut some for my desk.

Daily Face: November 11th and 12th

 I hope all the Veterans who served our country had a wonderful day! To those of you who don't know, I served. See those combat boots. When I served you did PT (physical training) in those boots. No sneakers for us.

Daily Face: November 3rd

Where did fall go? Today in the south it was really hot. I want to feel the chill in the air and wear my fall clothes. Put on my favorite boots. Sometimes I just wear my clothes despite the heat. Whenever I go out I laugh because real southerners have on shorts and tank tops. I'm originally from the north and in November I want a brisk chill.

Daily Face: November 2nd

I let my husband tempt me with a visit to Barnes & Noble after I got off of work. Well it turned into a rather late evening and I had homework to do. I was so tired but I pushed through it because if I would have taken a break as he suggested I would not arise until the next morning.

More Doodles

 I had a little time to squeeze in some quick doodles. Some I like, some could be better. My favorite is the one with the daisy for an eye the inspiration came from Anya Schultheiss on Flickr.

Daily Face: October 30th

Had a good day: work, pass out candy to students who didn't have a stomach ache complaint when they visited my office, organized for my decluttering client, went to football game, came home finished watching Project Runway.

 Today is my 33rd Anniversary! My husband and I still hold on to each other. He is my best friend. We have been on this journey through thick and thin. When times were good and bad, high and low, plenty and little. My prayer is for all those out there to stay together with things get tough because when things are in the low valley they will rise to the peak and oh what joy you shall have.


Daily Face: October 29th

 I actually had a slow day at work. so I did a little doodling.

Welcome to My Home and School Office

 Welcome to my home and work office. I thought I would share a few fall photos before October is over. I'll start with my school office. I like to use pop-up cards to decorate my desk. Each year I make the tall tree on the wall and have students write what they like most about fall.

 Welcome to my home. Here are just a few of my fall decor photos. I used to have four of these little pumpkins.  One for each daughter, but one year when I was putting them away I broke one. It hurt me that I did that. I still have it, thinking I'll glue it back together. I'm using my vintage Lenox China to set the dining room table. I made some Northern Bean and spinach soup for my husband and I to enjoy. Then its off for a good nights sleep. Hopefully I'll get to dress my bed one year like the Anthropologie bedroom with some darker colors.
