While I was digging in my crowded garage bringing the Christmas decorations in I happened upon this original 45 of Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby in my grandmother's records! Isn't it cool looking? It's dated 1954 on the back. I created a shadowbox complete with a hot pink stocking, a pic of a light blue Cadillac, a copy of the cover of the single, and a photo of a Tiffany's box. I lettered some of the lyrics around the edge of the shadowbox. I love this version of the song and I thought this was a cool way to display it for the holidays.
It will be traveling to Connecticut tonight as a gift for my son's partner.
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
