Greetings and salutations friends!  I know it has been a fair bit since my last entry, but that could not be helped.  So many things have happened in the last several months. Where to begin…

Well, all last school year I underwent my first formal evaluation in several years.  It was a bit stressful, but nothing like I expected it to be.  The real stress came from trying to be mom and teacher at school with my daughter starting kindergarten and my son dealing with bullying…again.  I have come to the conclusion that changes need to be made because of this.  To that end, I am in the process of making things truly official for my little Etsy shop and starting my business officially.

Introducing… LaClaire Creations, custom crochet!  I still do art pieces and am actually working on creating 9 original characters for someone. However, most of my work currently is with crocheting various items.  Right now, besides those original characters, I’m creating display examples for my first show in just a couple of weeks that proceeds will go to supporting my community’s homeless this winter.  I have a second show in a nearby small town a couple weeks after that.  To get ready there are loads of things besides creating these display pieces that I’m trying to get done and hope I don’t forget anything in the process. I did get registered at the federal level and have my tax ID for the IRS now (yeah…?)  I ordered business cards from Vista Print this afternoon and I plan to go open a business account so that I can get setup with Square hopefully all before the show.

Okay…  that about catches you up on things for now. I’ll write more soon especially with hopefully establishing a website! Hope you all have a fabulous day and namasté!

Lady LaClaire

I am an elementary music teacher for USD 259 Wichita Public Schools. I have 2 children and have been married for 10+ years now. I am certified ESOL, Levels 1 and 2 for Kodaly, and I graduated with honors from Wichita State University in May 2006 with my BME. I started teaching the following fall. A couple of years ago to help deal with stress and inspired by my students' work from their art class, I took up Zentangling. Since then I have branched out to more traditional art work using mainly colored pencils, markers, and pens. I also crochet various clothing items with a focus on what season we are in (winter = hats, scarves, gloves). I hope to return to cross stitch at some point. I do have a shop on Etsy called LaClaire Creations. I currently am out of stock, but am working on resupplying soon. You can also find me on Instagram as LadyLaClaire.
