Clef Canvasses!

I have the most awesome part-time job ever.

I'm a piano teacher.

When I graduate, I'd also love to get into classroom music - so like everything else, I've been pinning some ideas which could be useful when / if I do get into it.  Since a couple of my students are learning their notes at the moment, I thought that one of my pins (...sort of?  It's on the page that the original pin's on) would do the trick.  Rather than just printing it off, I wanted something slightly more... durable.

Bass Clef Canvas

So I bought some paint and two cheap canvasses and have been using buttons to get my students to spell out words.  It definitely seems to work, which is fantastic.

The original pin!
And buttons spell...
Bonus points if you can tell me what I wrote out =P

Okok, my painting skills (despite tracing the clefs) aren't great, but they do the trick and besides - if I don't end up using them again, with some more paint I can have some adorable paintings!  So it's so a win-win either way.

See you Friday!

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
