Projects galore!

Greetings and salutations dear readers! August has arrived and now is when my motivation kicks in for the tons of projects I’ve been thinking about over the summer. First, here is a heads up about what might happen this week in the Fusilier household.

I know I will be starting back with inservice meetings on Wednesday for the school year. Not exactly sure what that will look like with things in the air about Covid mitigation efforts. I am also looking to start a pet project that has been in the works for awhile now. On the new home front, we hope to gather supplies to start updating cabinets and paints for the new house along with maybe finding a match for the flooring we’d like installed. Fingers crossed on that one. My daughter turns 9 next Sunday and she just wants a simple family birthday this year, baby Yoda (Grogu) themed of course.

My big pet project though that I would like to introduce is called “Gloves for Gambia” supporting Little Miracle Gambia run by my dear friend, Dawda. We’ve been working together to help care for and educate children, specifically orphans, throughout Gambia. The idea is, for every order for fingerless gloves, all proceeds will go to this charity in an effort to buy school supplies and food in an effort to close the gap as much as we can for education and basic needs. For any other purchase (i.e. masks, scarves, headbands/ear warmers, etc) half of the costs will be donated while the other half will go to supplies to continue product production. Any and all support is appreciated! Any other donations can be made via CashApp $HeatherFusilier or Facebook Pay at

Mondays can be rough, but they don’t have to be and I hope your’s is treating you kindly. If not, may your coffee be strong enough to last through the day! Namaste!

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.
