Impossible to title...

I'm afraid this is one of those posts that has un-related things that I want to share...so it might be a bit dis-jointed...bear with me.

First I wanted to share with you, something I thought was really cute. My DD2 (age 5) decided to copy out the specials from Sainsbury's and indicate which ones she thought was worth putting on the shopping list. She put so much detail into it...right down to the Pepsi label! (click on it to get a larger view) Obviously Champagne and Beer aren't worthy for the list! LOL




I also wanted to share a link to a very good blog for blogger advice. Lately I've noticed a few people have been asking for help on things like how to add your signature or how to write a Code Box for your side bar. Amy at Split Decisions has all those answers plus many more. It's worth bookmarking.


Sorry for jumping around...there wasn't going to be a pretty way of linking these items!

You have quite the artist on your hands . . . that's definitely a keeper *s* Thanks for the link for blog help - I have it bookmarked for future reference.

I am so glad to see that the Lindt Bunny got on to the list - I'd have been concerned if that had been left off! LOL That's cute - and what a keeper.

Anina said...

She's definitely an artist. And she has great taste in food. :-)

Kim said...

Agree with DD, she has her priorities straight when it comes to shopping and you have a masterpiece to frame!

Thanks for the virtual quilt info.

Oh that's gorgeous! How sweet, you must frame it and hang it in the kitchen!

Marlene said...

Your daughter's shopping list is wonderful. With artistic skills like that she will make some beautiful quilts some day.

Thanks for the link to the site with blog help tips. I'm going to spend some time there.

Andrea said...

Fantastic shopping list ! I agree with everything she chose - lol ! I think she deserves a gold bunny for Easter.

Jane,

I love your daughter's artwork. That's adorable!

The Dear Jane block looks fantastic. I went on a retreat with Brenda Papadakis back in 1998. She's a riot! I made a few of the blocks, and tried (really hard) to make a triangle. lol These were the days before EQ had a program or before any directions were made. You would think by now that I would have a Dear Jane or a Baby Jane made, but all I did was make a block to put under the pressser foot of one of my toy sewing machines. One of my friends put her blocks on a Christmas tree, along with lots of other sewing notions. So, if you don't make a quilt, there are other things you can do,too. A quilt (baby Jane or Dear Jane) would be more beautiful, though. So, keep motivated! :)

I could give you a big hug right now for leaving the "Split Decisions" blog in your comment to me yesterday. I will post about it today, and hopefully this will help a lot of people! Thank you so much!

What fine hand-eye coordination your daughter has! (Sorry, that's a bit of teacher-speak!)

Pam said...

Great little photo of your daughter's shopping list -- too cute!! Too bad about the beer and wine though -LOL

Good luck with the Dear Jane - I am enjoying reading the blog and everyone's progress. I started 2 years ago and I have about 40 blocks so far. I think it will be a 10 year project for me!!

blackbearcabin said...

your daughters sale flyer is absolutely hilarious...what talent! Looks like you need to start a portfolio for her :)
thanks for sharing!

I love the Sainsbury's ad - though I have to say, I disagree with Kim and think you need to teach your DD about her priorities - Ribena, but no champage? What's she thinking, LOL!

Diana said...

Is that her, the satisfied customer, in the lower right block? LOL Her artwork definitely needs a frame!

My Dear Jane is languishing in its box--I am so far behind my DJ group in blocks that I don't think I can ever catch up. I'll keep plugging away, though. Thanks for the link to the DJ group.

Thanks for the link for blog help. I love stuff like that. Your daughter's list is precious.

Elizabeth said...

That shopping list is great! I'm going to have to disagree on the champagne though. That always belongs on the list! :)
