            1. a piece of writing to be randomly distributed outdoors, with the intention that it will be picked up by a  stranger walking by. 
Inspirational verse not meant to be perceived as waste.

Last year we posted  "Take What You Need" posters around town Within hours of posting, strangers had already ripped off various traits. 
This year we decided to type out quotes on tiny strips of paper and hide them in little spots during a walk. "Litteraturing", so to speak!
They've all since 'magically' disappeared:)

Daily Doodle: Leaf People

Ms. O's Leaf & Shavings Fairy

Our 'Ponders' are coming in very handy and brimming with mini collections by the time we return home. We're putting our treasures to use, when we can, like this mornings 'Leaf People' prompt.

For those of us who had zero interest in creating art, business endeavors were well underway! After collecting a basket of tomatoes from the garden, Ms.C set up shop, calling out,

Better bring your money!"

 The Seahorse

Ms.C loves 'tuckin'".
When she gets her hands on scissors, she 'tucks' paper into a million pieces.
As she's working she mumbles, "Medium, now smaller (snip). Medium, now smaller."
She also creates 'Seahorses' and has made them on more than one occasion.
Seahorses, ladders and caves.
