Our mural project continues! We had to take a hiatus at the end of the school year & part of the summer, but we’re back, and almost finished. So proud of my students. These girls really took charge of this project and learned so much. It was an empowering project for them. I’ve watched them grow & do things they didn’t know they had the confidence to do. They got experience working as a team from design to compromise to understanding what a they were capable of and how they could push new limits. They not only worked in a lift, but learned how to put it together & they balanced on ladders 10+ feet off the ground to paint! These girls rock! #girlpower#muralart#realworldlearning Thanks for the inspiration @mayahayuk and @swoonhq Thank you @stratfordacademy for all the positive support and encouragement you gave these girls, you never said no.
So the fostering of the found puppy didn’t work out so hot. We fell in love with him & have to keep him! Tater Tot is #5 dog now & the other dogs have excepted it. Tater was pretty great on our road trip to Wilmington, but the 6 hr ride back was hard for the pup. Tater moaned, pretended to sleep unwillingly and take up all kinds of hilarious positions. I couldn’t resist the photos. Rest assured, we stopped for breaks and when we got home he had a giant walk with his pack. #rescuedog#puppy#partyof5#weimaranerpittmix ? #fosterfail#roadtrip#arewethereyet
Wilmington, NC, a little working vacation. Starting to work on renovating my boyfriends house, it’s been rented out for years. The backyard turns to marsh & you see the Brunswick River & Cape Fear beyond. Somehow forgot to get a shot of the river between all the trips to Lowe’s. But we did get to the beach for one day. 😊 #wilmingtonnc#lelandnc#workingharbour#renovation#workingvacation
Fig Jam!! I have finally conquered my fear over canning jam, I've wanted to can, but it's always been intimidating for me. Not anymore! Here are 3 different recipes; vanilla fig, balsamic fig, and whole figs in syrup w/lemon slices. The whole figs look a little funky tho, not sure about them, even tho they went through the proper water bath at the end. Breakfast is almond butter w/the balsamic fig jam and it is delicious!!
Also, shout out to @cameron_barkley for our new/old furniture in our kitchen, we love it, thank you. And, @barrygreggclayworks & @masasasakiceramics for my sweet dog and mug to start my day ❤️❤️ #handmadewithlove#ceramics#figjam#canning#dogs#barrygreggclayworks#masasasakiceramics#haitianart#columbianart
