i think i still have a silhouette diy project brewing.
it consists of animal silhouettes and plates.
i am always trying to think of creative ways to display teaching tools in emory's room.
i can picture a cluster of animal silhouettes on her wall.
especially an elephant, those are her favorite!

now should i do white on black, black on white, or color on white?
