Getting back to my roots! I introduced carving to the kids last week. They did amazing jobs at cutting safely and making cool stamps. Kalin did two designs, a leaf and a flower. Cam did some crazy randomness, but also managed to trace a snake that I drew for him. I even got some carving in-- but no pictures of that of course. And I was motivated to rejoin the Carving Consortium. Hoping for some swaps in my future!

Birthday card
