ccc - jan

i could have fun with this style of lettering. it would be fun to teach this without giving students the whole exemplar and have them try to figure out the letters on their own. Starting with graph paper would be a good idea. while this is not pink and green, it is still in the hurry up and finish the ccc project that i started in jan or feb. the first layering of writing was actually done on the very first day i started. then, this one was in the pile of not-sure-this-can-be-fixed. then, at the end, when i just had to be done with all of them, i used my two go-to solutions for everything. outlining and happy faces. i believe there is a metaphor for my entire life in the previous sentence (or previous phrase - as my grammatically correct readers would point out)  :-) ----

so yesterday, i was creating a really beautiful sculpture out of the paper items on my plastic tray at my fine dining establishment. (fine dining is when they give you the paper place mat on your plastic tray so you have something to do after you inhale your lunch.)
my co-luncher asked me:
*which is your favorite, paper or pens?*
*that is like asking me which of my children I like best.*
that was the first response. but, on reflection, there is actually an answer. i will be interested in your guesses. either put them in the comment section or email them to me at
jmwilson411 (at)
i will post the answer tomorrow.

  1. Hmmmm. I was going to say pens at first, thinking you could write on things other than paper.... But you could also write with things other than pens. Being a pen FANATIC, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I'd say paper. I could live with pencils and brushes and paints, etc., as long as I had plenty of paper. You too, maybe?

    Good question!
