Earn your stripes

August 13, 2008


I’m not much of a girly-girl.  The art of make-up eludes me, I don’t like perfume, I have trouble putting outfits together, and my shoe choices are tragic.  However, I do have a soft spot in my heart for ribbons and stripy things.  You might remember my pining for some shelf paper long ago?  Well, I bought some similar contact paper when I needed a little something to jazz up the newly-painted walls in our entryway.  I love it’s stripy-ness so very much, I’m trying to sneak it into all the places I spend time.

God bless die-cutters.


Next up: the truck!

    Do you think it will help the little people wash?

    Do you think they will try to peel it off?


    • Lauren Said on:

      They’re already pretty good at washing, I think this will just be a giant distraction -- but a print-rich distraction!

        Good teacher!! If I have another little person (nearly impossible), I want to move to Seward so the little person can have you for a teacher.

    If you made some words that said “Give me money”, do you think your kids would do it? I suggest it to my middle schoolers all the time, but so far, no one has brought me money. So far.

    You have a die-cutter? So. Envious. Must. Borrow.

    The stripes make me dizzy.

    That sign looks groovy! I think you should install some music in the paper towel dispenser … everything goes better with music.
