It's a great end-of-semester project when all of the work of noveling and essay-exams are over and we have some time to think about letter and words. I love word-doodling and hand-lettering my favorite words and quotes puts me in a kind of meditative state.
I love to give and then let my students exchange them as well. This time of year I usually give Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Good Hours" because they are so wonderfully wintry.
But this past summer I stumbled on this quote that made me want to create my own collection of words:
So, I gave tried a couple, and I think I need to make better use of a ruler and pencil.
That was all I made time for this summer although I have quite a collection of Kiara and Gabe's names.
Hopefully get another couple done this week. Maybe I'll try to create a personalized bookmark to go with each of my books. (images to be created soon...)
