The Zambulance

I came across this product today: a bike-powered ambulance from Zambia. The Zambulance. LOL.  It's definitely thrifty, for sure.

But seriously, just think: so many communities could get faster service to medical treatment with almost no cost.  Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?!? Makes me want to buy one for every isolated village on the whole continent of Africa!

Wow I am super busy.

Hello blog readers (if I haven't lost you all by now)! I apologize for my absence. I've been reeeeeeeally busy.  I moved to a different state, got an awesome job, my car is constantly requiring maintenance, my mom came to town to visit, etc. etc. (insert excuse here_________).  Here are some pics from my phone to get you by until I write a real post:

One of my students did this and I thought it was cute:

Yes folks, that is a staple in my finger. There's a first time for everything.

Santa-Cali-Gon Days

Now that I've moved to KC, I get to go to this festival in Independence that my family goes to every year called SantaCaliGon Days.  I was super excited to go and got lots of ideas for crafts (if i ever get my craft stuff unpacked).  And I took pics for all of you.

Here's my mom and aunt getting corn dogs at 10AM.

A cool placard to make:

Super huge awesomesauce doll houses:

Bandana/Ponytail holder/Bun holder/Headband thingy that I'm totally going to try to make:

There were at least four booths with photo letter collages.  I swear, I had this idea five years ago!

Here is a booth full of those really life-like babydolls called Reborns.  They are like $350. I wish I had a pic of me holding one, because they look and feel like real babies.

I really wanted to buy one of these, since I have a Brittany Spaniel, but it was more money than I had on me. Pout.

This letter art wouldn't be too hard to make for a baby gift:

How true, even when spelled out in rhinestones:


I lol-ed when I saw this:

People eating on the lawn of City Hall:


This is the only thing I actually purchased, other than food - wax seal charms.  Mine says J, of course!

Some pretty awesome signage:

And me in front of a giant inflatable sun. For absolutely no reason at all.  :)
