When Art Teachers Are Bored

We've had spring conferences the Monday and Tuesday nights (two twelve hour days in a row. UGH) At the high school level, spring conferences are notoriously slow.  They are better now that parents may schedule conferences online, but still, at this time of year, they are slow. Especially Tuesday night, when our boys basketball team had a big game out of town.  In four hours, I had five conferences. FIVE. I had one of the bigger nights. Some only had one or two. Some had none.

It was good for me because I crossed many things off my to-do list. I did, however, find a little time to check out Pinterest (everyone needs a little brain break!).  I found these really cute paper roses:

The art teacher down the hall from me saw them on my board. An email from her said, "I'm bored. Pick one."  There was a link

Directions for lots and lots of lovely paper flowers.  I didn't even have time to pick one before she showed up in my room with a couple made from a book page.

 Periodically throughout the evening, she would come in with another one. By the end of the night, I had received a lovely bouquet and a container to keep them in.

Gotta love bored art teachers!


  1. Pinterest is such fun! I'll look for you, Deb! These flowers are beautiful. It's like that site that does all sorts of creative art pieces with books. Thanks for sharing! Sorry you didn't have more come to conference. Such a long day!
