I’ve been a big fan of Corrie Beth’s hand crafted paper plants for awhile, and since I didn’t really teach a big lesson on paper design this year with my students, I thought it’d be a good excuse to get my hands on some paper with the art club kids and make some plants for our fundraiser this year.

My Dexter silkscreen print arrived in the mail today.  Thanks Roshan! I decided to go with the first season because I like Dexter best when he’s all bloody. The upcoming days will be busy for me.

In the meantime, I’ve been busy working on some paper crafts to send out to my old classmates and friends. Aren’t these paper creations by Sarah Illenberger the beez […]
