Tell it to me slowly/Tell you what?

It was a busy weekend and I am at the final push of being ready for my festival. I found a way to make handles for my bird mobiles in bags. It turns out the a 2006 desk unused desk calendar that they were throwing out at the tiny local office supply store would work just perfectly if I tore off the sheets and folded them into handles. God I love a stapler.
Hah Hah to Joe who says I bring home too much junk. I spin some of the junk to silk.
My two goals for this week are to document some cool kid art we are working on and post summer camp week 3/4 on CMP. I promise!
My dad also let me have my old Fisher Price movie viewer and it is so freaking cool. I love the crank of it and the lack of batteries and the memory of holding the cartridges that seemed so big back then.

 Get me delivered to yr email xo

Amy.....spinning straw into gold one day at a time.

I think I need to buy the aqua rocker back from you. It looks A-ma-Zing!

...and the movie camera--I am SO jealous that you own one from your Yout-ful days. I've been looking for one on ebay. My brother had one and he allowed me to peek into it every 85 years or so. So much splendor, so little access!

I'm a huge fan of your little idea with big results... staplers are only as brilliant as the people using them! So great! I love your phrase about spinning junk into silk...that's one of my biggest pleasures. You're right about little allouette's fit with Mama Goose. Wonderful creations. I just worked on the design, but I will forward the link to Kelly, the owner. Have a great festival!
