  1. My favorite subject in school was Algebra,I just loved solving equations. After college, I was a tutor for several years and enjoyed helping others understand it.
  2. An extracurricular activity I participated in was student council. I was a member from grades 10-12 and the secretary for 2 years.
  3. I want to learn how to draw, I would love to be able to illustrate a children’s book I wrote myself. Prancie’s  Prayer will have an illustrator from the publisher, but maybe next time.
  4. It takes courage to open one’s heart to another pet after you have lost a beloved one, but I will continue to do it for the rest of my life. I would rather feel pain that never have all the love they give.

Penny’s Tips Volume 4

Hi everyone! Welcome to my latest installment of Penny’s Tips. This is sort of a shared post with mom, it is her idea, but I improved on it.

She made an Advent calendar for us using a mini muffin pan that has 24 slots. Dad cut out the circles from scrapbook paper and she numbered them. She puts treats in for us for each day of December up until Christmas.

I think I will clean out the first slot while I am posing 🙂 She makes this for us because the only Advent calendars around here have a piece of chocolate for every day.

If you want to make one for a child, but don’t want to have candy in all the slots, you can add stickers or PENNIES! ( see slot 2). And that is my tip for today.

We are joining Create with Joy’s Inspire me Monday’s Blog Hop. There are already over 200 holiday ideas linked up so be sure to check it out.

Is It Too Early For Apples?

Hi everyone! Mom has been destroying books again! Do you remember last year she made pumpkins? If not, click here.

  I didn’t want to get too close, that spray paint smells.

  Here are some of the finished apples, if you look close, you will see a worm in one of them.

All you do is take the cover off an old paperback, cut an apple shape out of the book. Then you fold the book back and glue the spine. You can also add drops of glue at the top of each page ( mom didn’t, she is lazy). Some of the books ended up with built-in stems that she painted green ( I think she should have painted them brown). And others, she added a piece of a pussy willow branch. Then she added ribbons and a worm in one 🙂

She is going to donate these to the senior center to put on tables at their monthly birthday dinner then they can give them away, but she said I could take one for a giveaway.

  I am having a giveaway of this book apple and this beautiful apple print catnip mat. Just leave a comment on today’s post before Wednesday 9PM (EST). I will announce the winner on Thursday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, I don’t mind.

We are joining Create-with-Joy’s Inspire me Monday Blog Hop ( Yes, I know it is Tuesday). There are almost 200 links on this hop with lots of crafts and recipes.

PS: I hope Grammie visits me soon, I love her so very much.
