Oh, geez. Where do I begin?
Today I was out and about with Mr. ATHG and Baby ATHG (I was getting my hair cut for the first time in almost two years, if you must know) when I received an email notification on my smartphone. We were in a busy, unfamiliar mall, and as a self-proclaimed Queen of klutzes, I try to avoid making the maneuvering of crowds and obstacles any more difficult, so I only briefly scanned the email… Jessica… Art Ed Blog… nominated… voting… *SMASH, CRASH, BANG* Okay, well maybe that’s not how it ended, but when I was comfortably seated in the safety of my car, I actually read the entire email and low and behold, I was nominated for an award! And not just any award, but an Art Ed Blog of the Year Award! Here’s the skinny…
Jessica over at The Art of Education informed me that my blog has been selected as one of the finalists to win “Art Ed Blog of the Year!” Holy sch-moly! I am just blown away by this. My snarky little blog was nominated along with some other fabulous art ed blogs that actually feature lesson plans and student artwork. Blogs that you can actually peruse and take something away from. Ideas… tips… inspiration… And all I do is clamor on about how misunderstood art teachers are. But there you have it. I was included on a list of some pretty phenomenal and successful blogs, and I am truly honored.
Now I’m sure you all probably follow most, if not all of the blogs nominated, so you’ve most likely already heard that you get to help select the top 10 blogs. All you have to do is wander over here: VOTE VOTE VOTE. You’re permitted to vote for as many or as few of the blogs as you want, and I hope that you will be so kind as to include this little ole blog in your selection. It would be a great birthday present.
Thank you everyone for all your support, encouragement and comments.
(Voting closes January 20th and the winners will be announced January 21st)
