Faces of the City
ago, when I was in pre-school, we made a lot of crafts. Some I liked more than

Happy Birthday Baby Brother
"Baby: Study" Today is my brother's first birthday! He is the baby of the family, so naturally, he is doted on. Last spring I used him as a model for one of my projects (pictured below) for AP Art. He is much cuter in real life.  "Children Having Children" -M
