Once upon a time

There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead

and she grew up to love bonnets.



Before and After

Day 46 – a picture you edited

Fortunately, I was playing around with my camera the other evening, and took this shot.  Then my camera died a horrific death.

Then I did a little retouching, added a vignette effect and cross-processed it using picnik.

I like the vignette part better than the cross-process, I think.  I also wish I knew how to make my nail color pop a little more, but ah well.

Peace, Love, and Reading!

Day whatever I’m on – a picture taken at school.

Sitting at my feet is an album full of pictures, dating from middle school through college.  I have lots of pictures from high school.  I look like I’m 9 in most of them.  However, they are on paper and I don’t own a scanner.  So instead, you get pictures from my classroom.

My fourth year teaching, I decided I needed to jazz up my classroom library, especially since I would be teaching Reading three periods a day.  And what is better than a classroom library?  Why, a reading nook, of course.  But I’m sure you already knew that!

Before (almost–forgot to take a picture of the blank wall)

Imagine the wall is bare.  Reading is booooooooooooring.





Reading is awesome!  Middle-school aged boys especially love pillows.  Best reward?  You may have a pillow at your desk for the whole period.

And a close-up of my wall-art:

Reading is psychedelic.
