This week I'm participating in the Creative Me Monday linky from The Southern Institute for Domestic Arts and Crafts and, since I have to add to my stock at the Midtown Farmer's Market, I created a Secret Sister(TM). Isn't she adorable? This is where I talk about solar cooking and take orders for my e-book covers and pysanki eggs. And, that left me with lots of extra material.
I got the idea for a Secret Sister(TM) from talking to myself. Yup. I talk to myself -- BUT, whenever I do that, it turns out that I remember the idea or the recipe, what-have-you! Like the old string around the finger. (I guess it's the combination of speaking and sound that makes the difference.) Using 7" cardboard cones, she stands on her own and comes with a legend on the bottom.
Not the world's greatest poetry, but the point is made. You can make two of them out of a fat quarter. Or, one of my favorite things to do for special orders, if you have a favorite cotton shirt or dress, use that as both a way to remember your idea or recipe and the one who wore the outfit.
