One of those days that made me smile!

I am having a great day in the art room. We had a early release day which means I have time to get somethings crossed off my to do list. One item that I needed to address was a problem with paintbrushes!  I love my brushes from Royal Langnickel. I was having a problem with the bristles slipping down inside the handle while the kids painted. I contacted Dick Blick, and they are sending me a replacement!  I love them!

My second item on my list was lesson planning. I have been visiting Jen's Blog, Draw the line at recently and she has an amazing way of organizing not only her blog but lesson plans. I was looking for her idea on Pinterest and Lesson Planning to share with my teacher friends.  Was I in for a surprise. She has a new post mentioning 4 new art blogs, and I was one of them!!! Isn't it wonderful when someone recognizing the small things like paintbrushes and blogs? Thank you Jen!


  1. Those are my favorite paintbrushes! How long have you had them when they started to do that?

    Aww. I loved that you shared my pinterest idea with your teacher friends. It is so helpful! I've been using it all year now.

    And you deserve the sweet words Beth!

  2. I love these brushes too! Haven't had the problem with the bristles yet, but good to know they will get replaced! :)

    I was also featured on Jen's blog, and I felt the same way - such a confidence booster. So glad she brought us together... can't wait to see what else you've been up to! :)

  3. Ooo I may have to order these brushes, with a trifecta of approval here!

    I had similar day yesterday--I got a haul that included neon temperas, the Crayola classpack of construction paper crayons, and a set of liquid watercolors. Like Christmas! And that was after I had seen my blog on Jen's blog... not bad for a Wednesday!

    I'm your newest follower! :)

  4. Thank you new friends and Jen for bringing us together. I also have started following you too Rachel and Staci.

    As for the brushes...I have had them a year. I sometimes wonder if items might be heat damaged living here in Texas. I may try to do something to the brushes that are not glued anymore, or use them with glaze.

    Enjoy the rest of your week!
