...the POETRY, that is! Today is the official launch of Scrap that Poetry!! The first poem is Rudyard Kipling's "If", and there is lots of inspiration to be taken from it. You can choose a single word, a line, the entire poem, or your own interpretation, and go in whatever direction you choose. The poems are there to inspire you to create something! Come on over and play with us...we'll share our mojo with you, if you do :)

I chose to focus on the word "ethos" b/c what i took from the poem was about maintaining a sense of character, your morals, your beliefs. i made this page for my boys, jotted the definition on a card and tucked it in :) simple and sweet. tfl, folks :)

check out The Sweet Stuff shop over at etsy. just added a new mini album yesterday, and will be adding another fresh baked item today (hint: Basic Grey "Eerie") :) :)

thanks, sweeties!
