Extra time... oh, and a blog award!

Since I can't get into my classroom (they're cleaning the hallways), and I don't feel like going all "mission impossible" and breaking in through the outdoor window, I've been spending some of my extra time painting and working on Perry (the picture book I'm illustrating for Heather) and crocheting. Here's the sign I made for my classroom-- I haven't decided yet where I'm going to hang it-- but it makes me happy:

I also crocheted a stuffed owl... I'm not sure why-- maybe I just like a challenge. The pattern is at this link... and here he is:



Sadly, I'm not the best at actually sewing all the crocheted pieces together-- but I do the best I can. And I suppose the more I practice the better I will get. Maybe.

In other news, I got my first ever blog award! (I didn't even realize these existed, but I'm still excited!) Thanks so much to Deana over at "First Grade Chatter" for the Liebster Blog Nomination!
