- Jenny: Repeat of 1st grade journal entry: In cleaning out a spare bedroom this fall I came across my old 1st grade journal. The entries contained one line (usually prompted) accompanied with a crayola drawing. I regularly journal, but thought it would be neat to add drawings to my daily reflections. Interestingly, I realized that the dates and days of the week line up just like they did in 1990-91. This month I am going to look at my 1st grade entries and use the same prompt to respond and include a drawing. There are not entries for every day, so I may fill in the holes with some of my favorite entries not in February!
- Julie: Drawing a household object in (water-proof anti-check fraud) pen, painting with old Crayola watercolors, and ascribing a human anxiety to it. A method of disarming worries.

- Pat: I did 12 minute Masterpieces for my Fun-A-Day project. Tomorrow is the
last one, "Night Hawks" by Edward Hopper. I had so much fun doing this,
that I plan to continue my 12 minute crayola drawings!!!!
Thanks for having this event!!!!
