First - just a ponder I had yesterday. My sister and I were having a conversation about a third world country, and it occurred to me that we appear to be missing the SECOND world. When you talk about third world countries, everyone knows what you mean. They also know that by comparison, non-third world countries are considered "first world." So what is the second world? Is it something like the dream world from Inception? Is it the Matrix? I'd like someone to get right on this and let me know. It could be that there are FANTASTIC opportunities for entrepreneurs in this mysterious second world. What if they don't have Hello Kitty yet? Or Iphones? Are you starting to see how important this is?
Second - we had major festivities yesterday - Mother's Day brunch followed by a combo birthday party/retirement party for my dad.
We had a high old time, including this rousing rendition of Happy Birthday that we all played on kazoos:
If you don't see this hilarious video above, click here for Kazoo Birthday. It may surprise you to know that is is actually more melodious than all of us SINGING it would have been. :)
Also, we played Boggle, which I've never played before and it is HARD! I love that game. I downloaded the Boggle app so that I could improve my skills.
Nursing my Boggle defeats, I retreated to something I know - STAMPING!! I made this card using the Texting Skills Challenge from CAS-ual Fridays, and a bleach technique I'm teaching in a class on May 28th - let me know if you want to sign up and make this card and two others!
Stamps: Texana Designs Poppy, Because I Care Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Derwent Inktense Pencils, Derwent Blender, Bleach, paintbrush
I hope you all had a fabby weekend! I'll be drawing my winner of the Big Shot Scalloped Squares die and other assorted goodies tonight - so stay tuned!
