My plan was to actually create a silhouette of each of my girls today and write a nice tutorial and post it…and it would have been awesome.
But you know what? There are a ton of great tutorials out there already, and I just didn’t have time.
I spent most of the afternoon researching what school I want to try to get my not-quite-three-year-old-special-needs-daughter to go to, since I only have a week to prepare for meeting the preschool transition coordinator who wants to send our little girl to a school that is completely unacceptable to us. I really feel like, to get the full effect of my emotions, you must see a lot of exclamation marks…like this: !!!!!!!!!!
I’m not a snob or anything, but why would I bother sending her to a school that can’t even manage to teach a quarter of its fifth graders to read? That’s a rhetorical question, ya’ll…I don’t actually expect answers. I know there are many arguments to support us having her go there, community empowerment and yadda yadda yadda, but it’s not even the school she’s zoned for. For all I know, the school district just pulled her name and threw a dart at a map. It’s not even near our house…you pass four other schools between here and there. URRGGHHHHH!
So, back to the tutorial situation. Thankfully, there are so many great ones online, that my not writing my own will likely not matter so much.
Here are the tutorials I found that looked the best, and the ones I had planned to try:
The classic silhouette, but way easier.
A hip, modern take on the silhouette.
Another fairly easy tutorial for the classic silhouette
And more hip…

I promise I will post my own silhouettes soon, pending I don’t destroy my computer as I navigate the befuddlement that is the “School Choice/No Child Left Behind” legislation.
