T Stands For Snacks in the Teachers' Lounge



Today we're visiting a place very few of us get to see for our Art Journal Journey school theme: the teachers' lounge.


We're joining Miss Fowler and Mrs. Gray

They are actually 

snacking on goodies and sipping beverages

while discussing their students career choices.

For this spread, I used an image (an old ad) from a magazine in conjunction with a partial scrapbook background.  I added some career choice cards after I cut the teachers hands so they would hold the cards.  Sadly, the magazine ad was very thin, and one of the hands tore after I carefully cut through and around it.

Now it's your turn to share your drink related post.  Any drink, any experience is acceptable.  Of course, if you share one that includes Art Journal Journey's Back to School theme, Bleubeard and I would love that, too.  Coffee, tea, water, wine, hot chocolate, lemonade, etc., postcards, movies, old masters paintings, photos, or a trip out and about are all acceptable.  The more unique and unusual the better, in my opinion.  Once you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.

Great idea, nice to see those teachers enjoying their snacks! We all used to take sandwiches to eat during break in the staff room. Thanks for another great page for AJJ, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

I always wondered what they did in the teachers lounge, except maybe complain about all of us! Cute page. We need all the vision we can get. xox

I remember those cards from some game I used to play as a kid! Sigh -- takes me back.

Thanks for your visit and wonderful comment. I remember when we didn't need passports for Canada, too. The old days! I was intrigued to learn more about the Mennonites. I couldn't believe there was such a VERY long line of them, given that we had never, ever heard anything about that -- but then, my grandfather never spoke of his family. Family history research is certainly illuminating!

Have a good week! And thanks for adding to the "Sully" review. It goes higher and higher on the list!

This looks the funnest teacher's lounge ever. I used to stay away because it was all complaints, and now no one seems to use the teacher's lounge in my school. O guess they still have teacher's rooms in school. It is a fun page for T day for sure. I think they look like cool proactive teachers. Great idea for food and drink. :) Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

Now I know why teachers are such relaxed people(at least some of them) - if they got such nice snacks always -lol!

You're right, I have never been in the teacher's room (they had a small room in our school, nothing that could be called a lounge). As a nurse I know what our little hidy-hole looked like and over the christmas period we decorated it in the worst possible taste (the rest of the hospice being chocolate box pretty and cute) and like your teachers, we had snacks and goodies.
I love the fact that you put the cards in their hands. The broken fingers are not at all visible!
I really like your page!
Happy T-Day!

Teachers Lounge is a much nicer title than Staffroom - I must say that if snacks were ever provided it was usually the children in my cooking lessons that made them! A great colourful page Elizabeth! Hugs, Chrisx

Meggymay said...

Now those are the snacks that would have been very welcome. our staff room was tidy each morning, by lunch time it was a cluttered mess, Cups rating rather highly as nobody ever washed up till home time. Its a great page.
