When the concept came together for my Hands AB

It's hard for me to see my own handwriting, but I really wanted to make this two page spread about how the AB class came about. I began the background using "Warm Milk" and "Teddy Bear Brown." I mixed the two colors together a bit more than I originally intended, but I'm still happy with the results.

I used a brown Sharpie to write the words. I had enough room on the page, so I was able to use the Sharpie without it making a mess when I wrote the words. The left side reads: "It began with a concept. No money would exchange hands. All that was needed was an internet connection and to be plugged in.

One hundred twelve people contacted me. I could only take 99 because Blogger restricted the blog size to 100. I never would have guessed the turn out would be this positive. What fun we had using our hands and a mouse!"

The beauty of this AB is, it started as the book I used to teach the on-line beginning AB class. Now it will be a keepsake I can hold onto forever.

What a great idea for a spread in the book. I understand about the handwriting...your's looks fine to me but my own leaves something to be desired. Always our own greatest critic.

I love the ideas on your blog! I used to be big into ABs, but have drifted away. Thanks for inspiring me to get back to it!
