Photo Fridays: Butterflies

Butterfly Mobile

Originally uploaded by teachergal

I created a Butterfly Mobile in ceramics with some cookie-cutter butterfly shapes, which I pressed to flatten (the wings). I glazed them with antique blue and a raspberry colored glaze. The other night I got some purple string and strung them up.

These are a gift for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend who loves butterflies. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed creating it for her.

Head over to Flickr for more Photo Fridays Images.


And now the writing must begin…

The “Document a Week in Your Life” Challenge, hosted by Ali Edwards, is now over. Hence, I have to get on the ball with writing up my week!

My week is documented with raw images on Flickr.

Today is September 11th, 2008.

It’s the seven year anniversary of the day America was attacked.

But still, we are free.

Whether it’s on a small farm or at the State House, it seems that Old Glory flies proudly.

My D.i.a.S. is: I’m proud to be an American.

Give Me Five

Henry K. and Rosemary Wong’s Book gave me the signal “Give me five!” when I want to get my students’ attention.

Less than 13 hours to go ’til the kids come, and I realize I didn’t have my “Give Me Five” Signs up in my classroom! Ack!

Here’s what I created. (I used my own hand with Rhonna Farrer Paper in the background.)

DAY IN A SENTENCE: Yankee Stadium

I had the chance to see the new Yankee Stadium today AND got to walk on the field of the present one.

This week, Day in a Sentence is hosted by

I saw this sign and had to take a photo!

I can’t believe the City of NY spent money on so many of these. There’s a bike path on the street I was on when I took this, but how many people are really reading (and listening to) signs like this? It’s a smart sign and I WISH people would truly share the road, but I think the money for signs like this could’ve been better spent somewhere else.
