What are they worth these days? A penny.. they can be found at the bottom of your purse, on your countertop, at the bottom of your drive through coffee change compartement of your car, perhaps you even have a full jar of them at home. These days people just don't do anything with their pennies.

Until I fell upon Wish Upon a Penny on Etsy. I was surfing my Activity, checking out a cute studio, then I checked out their faves and found this. How cute is this? Penny art necklaces. Brilliant. Use those pennies, gift them and give them a new use (or value).

I think I can count on one hand how many ‘gorgeous’ days we’ve had since the beginning of Spring. Cold and rainy has been the status quo here in Montreal. I loved this beautiful ‘Rainy Days’ treasury by AbbysAtticNJ and was very flattered that my coffee sleeve was included.

Crossing my fingers that I’ll have some sun soon!

CiC Saturday – Wold Cup June 12, 2010

If my children would let me watch a little tv that wasn’t animated or musical I’d be tuning in to watch some World Cup soccer! Since the Olympics I’ve begun to enjoy watching intense sports on television. So what if Canada didn’t make it? Ok, I don’t think we even came close. I’ll find myself another team to route for (who are the underdogs?)

Montage Monday – Gemini May 31, 2010

When I think of June I can’t help but think of my Gemini friend & daughter. Wow they are engaging, fun, and e-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g, and I say that with love. I remember reading somewhere once that you can only have one Gemini in your life, I have more than one.

I was going to give you an explanation of the character traits of a Gemini, but decided against it. Instead I’ll just share a small paragraph I read on Mystical Blaze about Gemini children. It was like reading a report card on my little girl:

“For those with a Gemini child,  get ready for a ride!  These kids can be sweet, cooperative little angels one moment and infuriating monsters the next.  Gemini children are very verbal and soak information in like sponges.  They therefore tend to master the art of communication quite early, often displaying knowledge beyond their years.  This is a high-strung child with a lot of pent-up energy, so don’t be surprised if your 6-year-old Gemini claims to have “tension headaches” or other physical complaints beyond his years”

Here are some Gemini inspired indies for your viewing pleasure:

Montage Monday – Somewhere over the rainbow May 10, 2010

I must be feeling a little nostalgic with the release of yet another Robin Hood movie. Since viewing the preview I’ve been thinking of all my childhood favorite movies and of course the Wizard of Oz came to mind. I just loved the movie, the cinematography, the music, the characters and ahhhhh the color when it first appears on the screen! Movie Magic at its best.
