Well, I always have said for years that if I listen to my kids I will find out about great new ideas. Case in point: When my son, Cliff, was about 12ish I finally listened to him about leather Keds/sports shoes. He kept telling me that they are better than canvas for several years. I wouldn't listen to him. I thought leather would be the worst for kid's shoes. At last I gave in and found out that the leather is the best and canvas shoes are a dud. Tonight I looked at my daughter, Gracie's, blogs that she has joined and noticed http://www.sharpieuncapped.com/default.aspx. Wow oh wow. It is too much fun. Now I want to buy all the sharpies they have. Have all of you looked at the variety of Sharpies these days? I had no idea that they have oil based ones. On the Sharpieuncapped blog I saw a CAR that someone had drawn designs all over the place with a black, you guessed it, Sharpie. Too cool for words. Now I should know that Gracie would be a genius about this as she works for an online office supply company called shoplet.com. She knows her company's products and then some. I say "then some" because she spends all day looking at blogs to try to find out original ways to use the products that her company sells. I think you'd find her office blog, http://blog.shoplet.com/, very interesting and it isn't just because my daughter writes it.
You should check it out. One of the things I really like about it is that she presents services and great ideas that people do-like the guy that wraps gifts in a very creative way. I always like it when someone goes out of their way to support others. I mean, we can all use a helping hand every once in a while, right?
Whew! I finished the baby quilt and pillow and now can get back to some art work-although I have a final next week in my class and if it's like the last test it will be a humdinger-must get studying.....blaaaaaaaa.
