Lade Gaga

This is my daughter Devon's story about Lady Gaga. I should mention that Devon is in Kindergarten. She wrote it at school as part of a workshop that is run by Queens College. And it so happens that Queens College is using the story as the opening piece in the Teacher's College Writing Institutes next year. I think the piece speaks for itself.

H is for Haste

I used "Haste" for the letter H of my Abstract Nouns alphabet. I was originally going to use "Happiness," but one of my daughter's friends accidentally scribbled on the square, so I had to improvise. I incorporated the scribble into the underscore.

G is for Greed

"Greed" is the letter G of my Abstract Nouns Alphabet. I love the idea of a snake devouring letters. I tried this concept once before with my counting boa, but I never knew quite what to do with it. I am happy to incorporate it here.

My friend suggested "gluttony," which I actually like better as a word. Unfortunately "gluttony" was too long for the square, so I stuck with "greed."

Craft Fair

We went to the Renegade Craft Fair today in Williamsburgh, which was hot, but fun. My favorite item by far was this tattooed circus man by Mimi Kirchner. Check out her other dolls, too.
