A note from Dana's Mom

To Whom It May Concern:

Hello! I am Dana's mom Patricia and I am visiting for the week:) Dana's blog friends may know she has been having some problems with her tooth.. yesterday she had to have a root canal and she is feeling a bit under the weather. I told her I would be glad to step in for the day as her guest blogger.

I thought I would use this opportunity to post some of my most favorite memories of Dana's childhood...heehee :)

1) When Dana was a little girl and we used to ride in the car with the windows down..she would get angry at the wind blowing on her face and try to fight it with her fists....
2) Dana was quite the chatterbox as a child ( I think she never outgrew this one) and we used to bribe her with a promise of a trip for ice cream if she would stop talking:)
3) Dana's favorite game as a little girl was to pretend she was a waitress. She would create a menu and put the "specials" on a blackboard. She would take all the family's orders and then come back with various berries and leaves she found outside and serve them to us on little dishes.. soo cute!

P.S. Dana just won a contest on the Canadian Scrap site called Rhubarb Roots for a transparency layout she created for Scrap Your Crap's challenge with velum. Here is a link to the newsletter showing her winning layout on the Rhubarb Roots newsletter. We are very proud of her and
I am sure you all know WHO she inherited all her talent from don't you?





P.P.S. Dana said to remind you to go over to the Scrap Your Crap blog and play the current challenge which is to use your very oldest product you can find in a bottom drawer have to create something new and fun. She made me these cards to send to my friends...

I hope Dana is feeling better soon! So nice of you to stand in for her and tell tales from her childhood. My daughter was quite a chatterbox too. Unfortunately we never thought to bribe her to be quite! Her uncle did, however, write "you talk too much" on masking tape and put it over her mouth, LOL.

Now that was about the cutest post I've ever seen! Glad to know that you are feeling better, Dana. Tooth problems are the worst, as I would rather have blood drawn 20 times in one day than go to the dentist. Ick! And, you sound just like my daughter when you were younger. She never shuts her little mouth, fights with the wind when we DARE to roll the windows down, and loves to play waitress. Although, I've never been served sticks and berries on a plate. The ice cream bribery...now I might just have to try that one out the next time I crave a little peace and quiet. Tee hee!
