Put Me in the Zoo or I Love You?


Inspiration for card making & scrapbooking can come from the most unexpected sources.  For instance, did you ever read Put Me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire when you were a kid?  Maybe you read it to your children or grandchildren.

Put Me in the Zoo  Remember how he could remove or add spots & change the color of his spots?

Did You Know that September 22 is Business Women's Day?


What's your Business?

 Do you have a Business? 

 Would You like to run your own business?

Origin of Business Women's Day:
Hilary A. Bufton Jr. and three Kansas City business women founded the American Business Women's Association(ABWA) on September 22, 1949. The first Business Women's Day was celebrated in 1982.

In 1983, a joint Congressional resolution was passed, and signed by President Ronald Reagan proclaiming September 22 as Business Women's Day. President Ronald Reagan also issued Proclamation 5532 on American Business Women's Day, in 1986. 

Five years ago tomorrow I started my business for only $199.  

  • It was a small investment to stick my toe in the business world and see if I had what it takes to run a business.  Who doesn't love a good challenge?
  • Earning extra family income on my own terms appealed to me.  
  • Setting my work hours around my family's busy schedule was important.
  • What I didn't anticipate was all the amazing women that I would meet along the way.  Have you ever noticed that creative people tend be happier?
