Hello there!

How in the world are you?  It's been such a gigantic change to suddenly find myself living with four other people!  It is nearly a year since I posted, but in my mind, I have written over and over.  Wanting to lately,  more and more . . .

Winifred Watson, the author of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, abandoned her successful writing career after the blitz in London destroyed a family home and forced multiple generations of family to live under one roof.  When Persephone Classics republished that book a few years ago, an interviewer asked her why she had stopped writing.  Her answer was simply, "You can't write if you're never alone."
 . . . this, I understand.

Today, I'm going to dip my toes back into the water, ever so lightly.  I have something that I just have to share with you!   Do you know Made by Joel yet?  I've been enjoying the daylights out of his wonderful ideas these days . . . with multiple generations living under one roof. ;)

He's posted such a fun project today!  Since I went to Paris, there are a couple of little girls in my life who can't get enough of it.  Particularly the Eiffel Tower, probably because Grammy was kind of pleased to have climbed it, without having a heart attack or anything!  They will love this.   It's a sort of animated stroll through Paris.  Joel intends it as a Valentine . . . maybe I can wait till then.  

I've been off blogger for so long, I can't seem to make the photo into a link . . . while I sort that out, this link will get you to the page that includes this printable, and a brief instructional video.

Here's a little get acquainted video  . . .

He has the most wonderful ideas.  All manner of playthings, coloring pages . . . his Paper Cities . . . I just  love his Paper Cities!   Paper City . . . Paper City Paris . . . Paper City Sydney . . . Paper City Road Trip . . . I love, loved . . . Paper City Nativity Scene . . .there is even travel sized Paris . . .

Enjoy, enjoy!  I hope to see you again!  For now, I'll try to figure out how to do this, again . . .  

Much love!
