… ✨WOW! how on earth did we get to the end of Jan?! most people close to me know how much i dislike January (& i’m pretty sure i’m not the only one) – the Christmas blues, the dark morns & eves, & the lack of money – i mean it’s hard right? … i really do have to thank both my crazy but wonderful job, my beautiful friends & family, & the inventive @64millionartists challenges for bringing positivity to this month & long may the positivity continue ☺️☀️… it has allowed me to alter the way i think about things & work with what i’ve got ‍♀️… i am in NO way stopping my arts & crafts in Jan because it’s just too darn good for the soul … in fact, i think i’ll be doing A LOT more once i’ve moved into my own place (watch this space!!) … BUT, to wrap up the challenges, here is today’s celebratory challenge … day 31 – a Batik style badge inspired by the Art, Geography & English that’s been happening in my classroom over the last few weeks … the hot wax was my doing, & the coloured ink was thanks to my amazing bestie @nikkipayneox … let’s just say we had a lot of fun today ‍ … #64millionartists #januarychallenge #january2020 #creative #art #artsandcrafts #pattern #hotwax #batik #family #friends #surroundedbylove #surroundyourselfwithpositivity #dowhatmakesyouhappy #beyourself #selfcare #mindfulness #inspired #teamwork #schoollife #teacherlife #fridayfeeling #reflective #itstheweekend #celebrate #changeiscoming #ohidoliketobebesidetheseaside #rainbowfish #nevergrowingup #notever
