when God gives you rain, you do the thankythanky dance and build yourself a boat. this summer has been insanely wonderful due to the rainfall and continued storm watches.

one of the extra projects that we do in my class is stencil cutting. i made this shirt this week in honor of summer rain and the last critique of summer I. my students rocked (and continue to rock) the freaking casbah and i hope that they continue cutting and working by hand.

in a computer-driven world, we seem to forget the merit of working by hand. i hope they go blow their mad skills like dandelion parachute seeds into the creative wind.
monday, i get to meet my new students. yeah, boi!

Wow, I'm really in awe of such precise cutting! I'm loving the red color, too.

I agree, any time it rains in July is a celebration.

I love that image.
If the kids want to raise some bucks, I'll buy shirts!
