View of my studio, well, a portion of it.  I highly edited all the things in that space.  I included a few of my favorite things, big Edison lightbulbs, my desk, wall of windows, my paints, and T-square “A”.

My dad was a surveyor.  He drafted his own surveys.  When he passed and I went through his house I found probably about 100 different rulers.  I used the folding carpenter rulers to frame a chalkboard in my boys room.  The drafting rulers sit in a bin for future use.  Matt hung these giant T-squares to make an “A”, my nickname.

day 16-2

Yesterday Matt and I watched “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”.  It was such an emotional movie for me.  As soon as I heard Fred Rogers voice, I was a little girl again.

Matt and I grew up in Pittsburgh, so, WQED and Mister Roger’s Neighborhood was a staple from birth on.  Beyond that, I also was head teacher at the preschool Rogers began along with Child Development greats, Margaret McFarland and Dr. Spock.  It was an amazing place to work.  One of the only at that time that truly still valued play as the best teaching tool for children.

If Mr. Rogers’ played any part at all in your childhood, I highly recommend a watch of this documentary.
