Charlotte



Illustration for Jackie's challenge, "The Illuminated Phrase."

The poem is "Natural History" by E.B.White.

2.5" x 3.5"

Tomorrow is a teacher workday. The kids are on Fall Break for two and a half weeks. I celebrated by taking an hour nap after dinner tonight. Aaaaaaaaah, it felt good.

Fall break, lucky. I start my district mandated elementary art pre-test today. The kids are real excited about coming to art and having a test. Fortunately I don't have to count the test toward their grade, only mine.

Your cutwork (is that the right phrase) is so beautiful! I can't even imagine trying to do that.

I love how you've interpreted the Illuminated Phrase project and used poems as the background for your snips. A really inspired idea. May I steal it?

That is so cool! I don't think I've read much EB White beyond Charlotte's Web. I should look some up!
