So, after all of the recent digging around in my bedroom, I have come across many cool artifacts that I had never thought I would run into again. Many of them were found stuffed into drawers with little concern for returning to them. (We all know that feeling of stuffing items into a place just to get the bedroom picked up for Mom.) So, after making an initial inventory of artifacts, I have decided to spend some time really breaking these things apart as a testimony to my growth. (Here is where many of my College of Ed cohort is going to tear me apart for sounding e-port-ish...) I will be soon begin to the portfolio of Catholic school artifacts (propaganda, for some).
Ladies and gentlemen, I announce today the beginning of a new saga to my blog (that continually spins around looking for a straight direction like a kid on a carousel)... a new series that I am going to call Artifacts of the Schooldays.
I will begin with the Catholic school years. At some undetermined point, I compiled a rather lengthy (in-?)school project where I summarized Bible stories through drawing. Every one of the kids in my family is pretty visual; we all greatly enjoyed drawing/coloring/artsy projects in and outside of school. (Runs down from my dad?) Anyway, here's the cover for starters. More updates will come through as I can recall the Bible the stories themselves and perhaps spend a little thought of my visual Bible portfolio.
