We had a baby shower at our house on Saturday for one of my former students who is also the daughter of my good friend Greg and his wife Jackie. It was a lovely affair. Lucy's cradle was a center piece of the event as it will be on loan to the new mother and father and baby Henry.

Greg had made wooden blocks to be decorated by guests using wood burners. It was fun. Some of the guests showed a distinct artistic flair as you can see.

My own love is in the visual arrangement of blocks. They need not be quite so fancy and fine to offer pleasure in arrangement of patterns, whether in symmetry or not. Henry will get many hours of inventive play using these blocks.

The blocks were made of western cedar, fir and basswood.

Today in the wood shop at the Clear Spring School we will assemble the rain forest animal mobile we've made in first, second and third grades. We will also clean shop to be ready for an open house on Tuesday afternoon.

Make, fix, and create.
