Another new, work of art, inspirational apron for my collection:)

Just stoppin' in to share one of my new aprons. I love getting fun aprons for my students to look at and enjoy, but also it protects my semi nice clothes:) It just adds that fun factor. This apron I discovered made by another artist in Valley Junction historical area of Des Moines, IA. A few ladies who are friends are also artists and made a painting on canvas, then added some fun trimmings to sew this apron. I loved the bright colors and personality it has. I stopped by their shop,"Fuss it Up! Designs" and they were so excited I wanted to buy a piece of their art. True artists are always excited when a piece of who they are, strike a cord with others and make a connection. I have other hilarious aprons too. I should just take pictures of all of them and show you. That might get boring...I don't know...but enjoy!

Oh and what's more fun than a plain, full body armored paint smock...............A TIE DYE PAINT SMOCK! I call it my 'tarp'. Because it can completely cover me from a paint massacre! Becky Brandt my student teacher gave this to me as a gift. It's amazing and now added to my fun collection of cover ups (aprons etc.).

Claudia Monet approves as Shantel says!
