I may have mentioned that a generous art framing shop in our town is contributing their scraps to me for our art room. Once a week I hop in my little Subaru
(yes, Phyl a silver Forester -- but no cute flowers like on yours!) and haul my stash over to school. Then it's load up all the illustration board into my cart, negotiate the stairs by the trash area to get into the building and start cutting the beveled edges off the matt board so that it is safe for the kids to use. I usually work as long as my fingers and back can stand it and a parent usually stops by on Thursdays to help me out.
What made it all worth it today was looking out onto my patio at the great view and, as always, knowing that all this board is going to become exciting art!!
