Take Your Guitar

My beloved "TOONIES" !

The Holiday Season is one time people will be glad to see your guitar case!  Bring it with you to celebratory gatherings, and practice the G, C and D chords.  Why?  Because THAT"S ALL YOU'LL NEED to accompany revelers as they belt out familiar carols!

If you don't believe me, just try it!  Choose a three-beat strum and a four-beat strum, then wail away.  Oh yeah!  It's good!

Introducing the Needle Art/Fun side of me

Today, I give you the berries!  I mean my sheep.  Have I mentioned I am the fortunate mother of wildly talented people?  Well, I am.  One of them, Joshua Sparkman, has created a delightful herd of cartoon sheep, championed by our Logo sheep, Huckelberry.

These are the berries I spoke of eariler.  Today, his special friend, Honeyberry learned to knit!  Way cool for a sheep to knit, I know.  (Just look at her scarf!) But, there is even MORE.

She is introducing a revolutionary new approach to knitting/crochet patterns.  It's just too fun! It's in ENGLISH.  "K2, P7, Sl 2 WYIB", and such is NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!  Hooray!
