If you search Instagram for the hashtag #fashionintherealworld, you will find all of my posts.  I invented it and #fashioninrealtime, and #fashioninreallife.  I just checked them; I think there are only two or three posts on them from random fashionistas.  The rest is all me.

Here are my outfits of the day from the last two weeks.  The landscape of my background keeps changing as I shift student work around the room.  All of my clay projects are complete.  The last batch went into the kiln today.  The 5th graders are currently working on a three-dimensional wood sculpture, my Studio in Art students are learning watercolor techniques and the rest of the 8th graders are immersed in the various SLO test projects:  Statue of Liberty paintings, “under the sea” landscapes with fish (mixed-media lesson), Japanese fan project (also mixed-media) and abstract paintings with realistic horses thrown in.  So four additional different lessons for the six classes.

There is a lot going on, which will culminate in the School Fair set for May 12, 2017.  I will have my hands full preparing for that exhibition and hopefully even with the upcoming state math tests looming, we will get everything accomplished.

But first – Spring Break!!!  I will be working on the business of making art as soon as tomorrow.  Can’t wait.  Watching students make art is clearly a fun job, but nothing beats the guilty pleasure of creating my own artwork – even though it is super messy and therefore cannot be done in designer clothes.  So…I will be sacrificing fashion for my art.  I did buy a new dress for Easter though.  It is Halston Heritage. ❤ OMG, I love it!

I’m the kind of creature of habit who basically could listen to the same CD in the car for months –  not just the CD, but a particular song, lol.  I am all about repetition.  All about routine.  (I can sing Billy Joel’s Vienna over and over again and not get bored with it!)

I just feel comfort in that stuff.  I have this idea that I will sing on stage someday.  One of my “bucket list” dreams is to do the national anthem at a sports event.  I know I can do it.  Someday, I am sure I will.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about all the things I wanted for myself when I was a kid.  Even the far-fetched stuff.   A lot of great things have been happening to me lately, a lot of dreams coming true.  It’s kind of very cool.

I met some people at the Syracuse International Film Festival a couple weeks ago.  There was discussion of an art movie that may be filmed here.  I may achieve the goal of being an actress! Well, an extra, but still!

I also talked to two people about acquiring art exhibitions for my huge inventory of artwork.  I am sure at least one of those will come to fruition.  Am quite certain I will find the right fit for my work and ultimately sell, sell, sell!

And because these things are happening, I think it is making me a better teacher.  I feel absolutely fearless.  Like everything that happens will be the absolute best possible outcome for me.

It helps me teach kids that they can achieve anything their hearts’ desire.  It’s not just positive thinking.  It’s the kind of blind faith that allows one to take that leap.  It’s truly an awesome feeling.

Dressing up for work is super fun.  As you can see, I am a creature of habit with fashion.  I just love Trina Turk and BCBG Max Azria.  They both like my Instagram posts, and that is such a huge thrill.  I am sooo grateful for all the compliments on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!!!!

Life has truly never been more fun!
