GIMPing along, you ask? As part of my transition to a new computer I went from adobe products like photoshop to the freeware GIMP - stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The going was rough in the beginning with functional fixedness from years of using photoshop. The only thing it doesn't do is allow copy/paste of text function (so far as I can tell), and I am the worst typist. It wasn't at all intuitive, or was it? Getting used to it ended up having every creative task with the making of collateral materials a real grueling, time-consuming adventure. But I got it done. Here's the brochure. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
And then I made my new business card:
Uploaded the files to my friends at Powder Horn Press, and I'm ready to go.
In addition to all of that, Lars thought it a great idea if we have a little giveaway so teachers can get a feel for what we'll be offering - a spiral curriculum that introduces topics that will promote lifelong inner growth of children. It's so cool to be working with a guy who really knows the teaching profession. He'll be taking the book to the Rudolf Steiner College (the Waldorf teachers' college) while I'm doing St. Louie. I am very excited - also a little scared to be spending all this money...
So, if you'd like a little taste of the curriculum, you can go here and click on link to download the freebie Picture Page and Activity Guide. :-) As Lars says, Science is a social event. If you do the activity, I'd love to see your Limulus Logo. Enjoy!
