below is what $2.87 got us at the local thrift store today.  ever since laying eyes on  The Artful Storybook, and since coveting journals from Evalicious, I have been itching to find and hoard paper.  that’s what led to these days, not than anything really has gone in it yet.  I decided against spending an additional dollar on a parker brothers careers! game that had AWESOME cards (like monoploy community chest) that said OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS.  i might have to go back and spend a looney on that.  i think i have to have a stack of cards that say OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS.

    i don’t suppose many others gasp and scoop protectively when they spy DOLCH FLASHCARDS on the shelf at the thrift store… what a nerd am i. and the nice lady at the thrift store cash register asked me curiously ‘do you know the language?’ on the other flashcards (japanese?), to which i could only bust out an excited/giddy, “No!!” but hey, i can papercraft/mixedmediaart/scrapbook make with subitizing/dot cards and dolch flashcards! all i need now is some FOOLSCAP and the teacherly nerdiness would be near complete
