    Thanks! I love stuff like this. I often fold a dollar bill into a heart and tuck it into a card for one of the little People in my life, or pass it secretly to them when we're out shopping or whatever. Now I can tell them I love them in one more way. Very clever.

    So I made the straw paper flower for my son last night at a Mexican restaraunt. While he appreciated th effort, he looked at me with one raised brow, and said, "Can you make a giraffe? Or a T. Rex?" I told him I'd try to figure it out. You don't happen to also do giraffes and T. Rexes, do you?

    No unfortunately I do not, but I'm always welcomed to suggestions. I'll do some research and see if I can come up with anything. That's funny what your son said.

    He keeps me on my toes. I was so proud of my rose! I once helped my daughter by painting "flames like on a Mustang" on a pencil box she had made for a friend. She, like my son, appreciated the effort, but I could tell it wasn't exacty what she'd had in mind. I said, "I'm sorry, Sweetie. I thought that's what you wanted." She patted my arm sympathetically, and said, "It's all right, Mom. What's important is that you did your best." Lord help me. (And by the way, I was working on the heart that same night up until my boy realized I had jacked his straw. Busted!)
