Visual Dictionary


Posted on Mar 21, 2006

There is a brand new web-site called Visual Dictionary.  These ambitious folks are trying to get a photo of every single word they can.  They have only been running for about a month, so they don’t have a ton of words documented yet.  They are looking for submissions.  I think this would be really fun to work on.  It’s a different concept than the Visual Thesaurus.  I dig the visual thesaurus,...

Kraf-O-La’s Eye Candy Tuesday


Posted on Mar 14, 2006

As an ode to Kraf-O-La, I decided to post an Eye Candy Tuesday.  I’m slowly making my rounds through the craft blogs that I visit and dabbling in all the cool things that all these woman do.  I posted my only quilt as inspired by Angry Chicken’s Quilt Monday. I don’t know if I have the courage to post a photo of one of my corners.  It would be tricky to find one that is clean and without cobwebs. ...

If you grew up in the 1980′s as I did, the above poem should be easily recognizable.  Shel Silverstein had a huge impact on my childhood.  I devoured his books and memorized his poetry.  He got it.  He talked to us like adults.  He remembered what it was like to be young.  I looked to Shel to tell me the truth.  If you haven’t been to his web-site, check it out.  You can hear audio...

We walked through all the rooms and just enjoyed talking leisurely.  I did buy my first...

My 12 year old niece had her Destination Imagination tournament this past Saturday.  It’s her third year of participating in DI.  Every team who participates in DI is required to provide at least one person to volunteer as an appraiser.  My husband and I have been nominated as their volunteers.  This is my third year appraising and it’s the second year for my husband. What is DI?  "Destination...

I Heart Valentine’s Day


Posted on Feb 13, 2006

I planned a whole fun day for my husband on Saturday to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  First we ran a 5k (his idea of fun, I’m lucky I didn’t die) and then headed to breakfast at Gravy.  My husband loves biscuits and gravy, and Gravy has vegetarian gravy.  After breakfast, I took him CD shopping at the CD Game Exchange.  We went to the one on Mississippi as well as the one on Hawthorne.  They...
