I'm back in craft-action!

Whoa, it's been a while since I last blogged. I'm back to teaching full time again - middle school - language arts, social studies, and art. I'm loving it, but struggling a bit to find a balance with work/kids/housework/writing/and kokoleo. I've spent the last month focusing on the first two, and now I think I can get back to doing the last two. (That poor middle one always gets the shaft.)

Now, if I haven't lost all my readers in my hiatus, I have a favor to ask. I wrote a Tooth Monster tutorial for this really cool site called and entered it in their Kids Crafts contest. I'm hoping to win a sewing machine for my school. You can view the Instructable here: The contest ends tomorrow (Sunday) night, but if you happen to read this before then, please vote for it. (I think you have to register to vote, but it's easy and they never spam you. It's a cool site to browse - there are tons of great tutorials.) Do it for the kids!

Here's how out of the craft-world loop I am. . . This project was featured on the Craft: blog and last month and I didn't even notice.

LinkToo bad I didn't sign my name to it or kokoleo would have gotten some props. Oh well, it's still nice to be featured. It's enough to make me want to start making stuff again.

I love that tooth monster pillow. Whoever designed that has got tons of talent. :-)

I too started a new job, the first one with a steady paycheck in 15 years. Grateful to have found it in our dismal economy. I still havent found the balance yet either.

The tooth looks nice and children can be taught many lessons using this tooth craft like hygienic brushing etc.
