Worky work

I started my summer job as a high school art teacher last week, and this is my reason for being so absent. It has its ups and definitely its downs, but it keeps me busy. If I get permission I will post some of their art later. I have some talented ones. In the mean time this weekend I went to the Summer Craftacular here in Madison for a bit and checked out some awesome artists, including some from Etsy! Here are some examples of the talent:

This cute kitten coaster is from the Glitter Workshop, the person who put the Craftacular together

This is one of the crisply designed and beautiful bags by Pravina

Pretty Little letterpress cards by Lucky Bee Press

Don't we have some wonderful talent in Madison? And this was just a small handful of what I saw. I was seriously drooling.

I really want to be a teacher. But, probably not to high schoolers. More like, 5 year olds, haha. Anyways, I think that you probably have a super cool job, and I can't wait to hear more about it.
