Fling the Sock

 I'm not sure what this game is about but it 
involves grandkids and friends, a sock, 
some bare feet, 
laying on the ground and swinging a 
sock at your playmates.
 All I know now is that now I have a sock
in one of my trees.

A lovely match to the ropes hanging in
my trees and the tree climbing boards nailed to
my trees and the trampolines and swings in my yard. what's one sock. It kinda looks like a bird.

Puzzle Boards for Parties

Here's some Puzzle Boards we've done in the last month.

They were used at parties in place of lighting
candles for a Candle Lighting Ceremony.

Each board has a little tab in the upper corner that 
is the first piece removed. Then it's easier to
remove the subsequent puzzle pieces without
having to work too hard at getting the next 
piece. We don't want to make things difficult for
the people standing up there in front of all
the other guests!

Underneath is another photo that is gradually

These boards sit just fine on a standard easel.

I've made the picture large here... if you click on it...
 so you can view the pieces and see how it is made 
with foamcore, paint and glitter. Glitter, of course.
That's our middle name. 

I'm Marlyss Glitter Hollyer and Stacey is
Stacey Glitter Dunagin.

Well...not really...but it should be.

Violin Font and other Fun Cutout Names

We're still makin' and shippin' foamcore cutout names.
Here's some recent ones.

One of my favorites was the one for "AMY".

That font is called "Carmencita".

I think it really looks good with music and 
especially with violins. It has the same 
swirly design that is on violins.

"Noah" is in the "Team Spirit" font. We use
that one often.

"Michaela" is in "Elephant Bells"...probably
the single most all-time popular font we own.
