the frog prince

Some frogs don't ever turn into princes. I'm thankful mine did.


do you see what I see

more Christmas list-y goodness. I swear I've been a good girl this year!


Halloween Heads

I have found myself creating reasons to make Halloween Heads this week. First I needed them - what a fun way to spend the evening! Then I convinced my self that my reading student and I could use one to connect to the "Great Pumpkin" text we'll read next week.


child artists

Finding this little gem in Daily Candy today was too cute to pass up. Who wouldn't want their art immortalized to a litho format? I know the price is steep, but I want to have kids just to do this.

Disney Concert Hall

Even though I had a sneak peek at the LA Phil and the Hall itself, I am still excited to hear the opening night concerts and specials. It is an amazing structure to be filled with amazing music!

On a personal note, I need to download the latest version of this for my palm. Weight Watchers really does only work if you journal.

Pumpkin Butter

Like I need a new kind of butter in my life. Oh well. Somehow I see myself making this to give away this holiday season. Well at least in my fantasy world.



I don't even have words for how much this moved me.


pop is not dead!

I'm not sure why I love them so. My favorite Brits, after the Royals of course, have not drifted into oblivian. Instead they live on here. God save the queen.


How cool! This site generates puzzles using words or info YOU put into it. I'll say it again, "How cool!"

(the dirrrrrty girl in me wants to make a naught word search. Hehehehe!)


harrumph! badge swap

oh yeah, like I need anything else on my plate! I love the badge swap idea though. It reminds me that I used to collect badges like mad when I was a kid. Of course mine are all huge compared to these nice small ones. Nothing like wearing a four inch metal plate with winnie the pooh on it when you're 5!
Plus this will give me an excuse to be creative. yay!
