I made books because I think MareMare said something about majoring in literature or something like that.  However, I can't seem to find any evidence of that actually happening.  I wasn't sure how to make them into a calendar until about a week before send out.  I just had a bunch of little book boxes.  That was getting scary. Shocked

Oh!  and the Haiku book is bound backwards all Japanesey!  I was strangely proud of that.

Yes, I have a BA in English Writing and Literature! Cheesy It's perfection! I did used to have it in my "About Me" section but I trimmed that down a while back because it seemed a bit long.

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

woohoo!  I'm so excited for this! I haven't done any Christmas decorating yet - my daughter's bday is Dec 8, so she's the one who decides when we decorate for the holidays. Still, I can at least put up the calendar when it comes. Smiley

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.
