I’ve been working on a new project for my kid’s class: graduation cards!
Teachers always work hard but with the COVID-19, they have been putting in so many more hours ensuring students have a sense of normalcy through a structured virtual classroom routine. With June around the corner, I wanted to help take some burden off of our homeroom teacher's shoulders...we won't be having a grand graduation party to celebrate the end of the year but I know teachers still want to make this occasion special for the students. So, my small way of helping out is making celebratory graduation cards for these kiddos that their teacher will customize and mail to them (Shhh. The kids don't know! So, keep it between us!).
When I took this on, I knew I had to make each card unique...just like these kiddos, with their own personalities, quick wit and sense of humor.
So, even though the owls may seem mass produced, each one has been painted by hand in a different color combination. The backgrounds are all different as is the greeting on them. I am halfway through and can’t wait to share the project in its entirety with you.
For now, here’s a sneak peek at one :)
