So, we are stationed overseas in Okinawa (my husband is in the airforce). And they only play the old Blue's Clues episodes on our tv channels, you know the one's with Steve.... So my daughter LOVES it and I was trying to find her a handy dandy notebook. My son had one when he was younger, it is an exact replica of Steve's and you can write your clue's in it. Anyway, they don't make the old ones anymore, they only make the new ones with Joe. And if you find an older one it will cost $20 or more, just for one little plastic toy! I am NOT paying that much for a plactic notebook the size of an assignment pad. So I set out to create one for her. I sewed green fabric with batting in between to create the notebook. I used fusible web to iron on a flannel red thinking chair and then outlined the chair in black paint. I made a pocket in the notebook just big enough to hold the small pads of paper that I picked up at the 100 Yen store. And I also bought chunky crayons at the 100 Yen store and printed out the green striped paper and used a glue stick to glue it on. The paint was kind of watery and it made me mad cause it doesn't look perfect, but she won't notice, plus I can always make more!:)

I think that Blue's Clues was wayyyyy better with Steve.

I also give you props for making your own version!  Cheesy Very cute ^^

I actually remember drawing the clues. On a piece of paper. I just drew squares on it and drew the clues in there really... I guess I wasn't in a crafty mood early in the morning XD I'd watch it before school  Wink

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
officer- "ma'am why do you have scissors in your pocket?"
drunk lady- "for arts, such as.... crafts?"

I'm totally with you all. Steve is way better than Joe. I bought one of those note pads for my son when he was little, but after a while the "wipe off" part wouldn't really wipe off anymore, so I think this is better!
