Good Advice and Other Nonsense

One of my favorite books as a little girl was Goops and How to be Them. It is a book of nonsense verse written for children and I thought the poems were hilarious!  The Goops make wonderful examples of how not to behave by cleverly illustrating proper manners from improper manners. The Goops they lick… Continue reading Good Advice and Other Nonsense

Back to School!

I love fall… and school supplies! My favorite part of fall was “back to school” shopping. New clothes, shoes, haircut, and school supplies! When I was in elementary school in the early 80’s, we had to cover our text books.

Waiting on High Tide

No, I’m not at the beach, but I wish I was! While I’m waiting on my Club Scrap High Tide August 2019 page kit, I printed images from the corresponding digital kit and made a hybrid card. I dusted off my Silhouette Cameo and used the “print and cut” feature to trim some of the… Continue reading Waiting on High Tide
