 Scissors for cutting paper, designs, and silhouettes.
Glue for adhering collages, designs, and embellishments.
Crayons for drawing and writing text.
Preparing the book craft supplies.
Setting up each table for children and their parents.
 9 year-old Tamika sat here and wrote:
"To the world you are one person
but to a person you may be the 
World . . . . " 
Inspiring handwritten text by 9 year-old Tamika
6 year-old Ranell made this book for her mother.  Lovely!

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
