Progess on our green building!

We are making progress on the addition to our new office space. The walls are up, the roof is on, and the siding is attached!

We can't wait to work in such a wonderful space! ⁠

The original building is made of reclaimed beams, strawbales and adobe for walls, and locally harvested lumber. ⁠We were able to save much of the original siding and reuse it. Here's what we've done so far.

Now, we have an SVG file that lets you use your Cricut or other cutting plotter to make your own cursive letters! Use these for many projects including Montessori sandpaper letters or Montessori felt letters. Read all about it and our other downloads on our Digital Products webpage!
