I received the most awesome email from a teacher who I volunteer with every Thursday in Kate's art class:

"Dear Julie, I can’t thank you enough! I am sooo excited to do this with the kids. Also, I have to thank you. Just meeting you has inspired me to do my painting again. You are really something special! Thank you!!!!!"

No. Thank YOU. While speaking with the teacher about art journaling with the older children, I explained an idea for an "I Am" journal the kids could work on. instead of leaving it at that, I came home and whipped up a class sample for her to hopefully show the children. I guess she liked it. :) I'm sure I will have tears of happiness in my eyes when I see the journals start coming to life. What a thrill.

Don't forget about Mucho Metallics! Metallics not your thing? You should re-think that one, my friend. Find out more information here. I hope to see you in class!
