My Scrapbook of Words

word-book

I love words.

In fact, I love words so much that I collect them.

Every now and then, the kids and I sit down with some old magazines and cut them apart. For them, it is a creative mishmash of random details that become otherworldly creatures. For me, it is a scavenger hunt for juicy words.

These words become a reference for my writing, inspiration for poems, and a teaching tool for lessons (when I was teaching full-time) and my kids (talk about a way to increase vocabulary!).

This book is where I keep them.

My New Homework

my new homework

If there was one thing I always loved as a kid, it was a new project.

Planning, creating, cutting, and gluing. Making posters was fun.

Now, I’m making a poster to promote the photography class I’ll be teaching to kids this fall. And I’m having fun with it all over again!
