My little boy started Montessori school last week and everything new that I learn about the philosophy warms my heart. I am so thrilled that he got a spot two mornings a week.

So they have been making the little paper bag “mailboxes” in the classroom and are encouraged not only to bring valentines for their classmates, but advocate them being of the handmade sort. You can imagine my delight.

I found a drawing from a couple of months back that actually resembles a heart and had it made into a photopolymer plate for my press. Today we spent the afternoon printing them, coloring on them and talking about who he would like to give each one to.
