Fantasia finish and blue nails!


April is Autism Awareness month and in honor of my Autistic students I painted my nails blue which is Autism's color.  When I came into school on Thursday, one of my high Autistic students looked at my hands and goes "Love your Nail color Mrs. Hartwell"  I just had to smile because he never notices anything about me. He usually comes in and says "Hello, I need to go to this class"  Nothing ever personal so him noticing my nails is a big deal!    Autism is a very difficult disability because when you have met one person with Autism, you have met one person with Autism.  Every Autistic student is different.  You never know what is going to work with them and what is their stresser.  I have 4 Autistic students in my seminar (homeroom) and they are all 4 different.  I have to handle each one differently because they have their own little world and sometimes, they do not want you in their world even though you have to be there.  It is a new challenge everyday!

Onto my finish!  Take a look!!!  Since I have booked my trip to Disney, I wanted to finish a Disney project.  


I love how this turned out!  I wish you could see the sparkly opalescent fabric because it really makes the design pop!  I am out of my rotation and now I am going to work on Summerball.. Frankly I am tired of seeing it on my UFO list...so I am going to see if I can finish it this month.
