ACT…Alive and Working

My goodness people, it’s been a while since I last had a chance to put together a post…I didn’t even write a celebratory FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY post for my young blog, so


I could tell you so much but risk boring you with the recount of my NEW/OLD life, life before A.R.T. , before México City…so I’ll just keep it simple…

Obviously I’ve been quite occupied adapting to the three digit weather, settling into what was supposed to be well-known territory but has been a surprise with every corner I turn, I have blamed it all on my age though I know it has nothing to do with it, however I do feel less energetic than I did two years ago…I reach the third floor, where my office is, huffing and puffing and sweating and praying I won’t slide down the steps like we see on cartoons…

It has been a huge change of pace, from using my time as I wish (blogging, pinning, painting, dreaming) to having a strict schedule, going from classroom to classroom, whew!  I’m happy and I’ll catch my breath and catch up with my fellow teachers soon. Meanwhile, I’m doing it at my own pace (do I sound like a senior citizen?!), the only thing that hasn’t changed is how much I enjoy being in the classroom making sure my students leave knowing something they didn’t know before.

Although every single concept taught gives me great satisfaction,

I had never experienced the joy guiding my creativity workshop has given me…

We started off by making a SOCK MONKEY, jajjaaaa I know, silly, fun, cute, YAY!!

I need to thank CRAFTPASSION.COM which is the site where I found the best instructions for putting together a SOCK MONKEY 

…and these are just two of the lovely guys that were made by this crafting group:

Of course I’m feeling very proud of my creativity workshop students and they are very much looking forward to the next project, promise to post some pics when that one’s done and the link to the great site that I used as guide!

Anyway people, I have not organized my life outside school which has affected my blogging, nevertheless, please stay tuned because my dear friend Gaby has a 40th b-day coming up and her posts are in the works…

But, before I log off for today, let me leave you with some images from my NEW/OLD life that have captured my imagination and my heart…

Hugs people!!
