not home yet!! so pulled these out of my suitcase...

SALLY @ SOW & SEW has taken it upon herself to post this week's WEEKWORD!

Anyone can participate - just contact the host know by leaving a message on HER BLOG! 

SALLY will link everyone up on Friday, April 29th. Then, you visit the other participants to see exactly what they think of the WEEKWORD.

From my blurry picture post, 
you might have guessed that this week's word is: 

Sally must have been peeking in my suitcase??? we're headed home tonight, so I'm sitting in a San Francisco hotel room checking out the three books I got during my trip to Washington DC.

The World of Eric Carle - Deluxe Scrapbooking: Simple 1-2-3 (purchased at the Arlington COSTCO) - great scrapbook pages - which can be used in creating some of the "kid stuff" I'm planning. Cute stuff for ACE's classroom. Too inexpensive to pass up!

Lawyers, Lead On - Lawyers with Disabilities Share Their Insights 
(my daughter, SLE, is one of the editors of this book). This book is just one of her major accomplishments, as she moves toward her passion for disability rights, advocating for policy change & representing clients with disabilities. 
Hopefully the :: stars :: will align & she will be taking the California Bar Exam at the end of July. Will keep you posted.

The Pocket Paper Engineer: How to Make Pop-Ups Step by Step: Vol 1: Basic Forms (Carol Barton, Popular Kinetics Press)
I LOVE making pop-ups... and they are not as difficult as you might imagine! Of course, they aren't as exciting as Robert Sabuda's - you can check out ROBERT'S WORLD here!

The Smithsonian Museum of American History had an exhibit of POP-UP BOOKS, that is closing next month... saw this "HOW-TO" book in the museum gift shop & had to buy it! I wish I had also purchased The Pocket Paper Engineer: How to Make Pop-Ups Step-by-Step Vol 2: Platforms & Props (by the same author).

Come on - everyone has something to say about the word, "B-O-O-K"


  1. I was inspired by your post on the Library of Congress! I hope you don't mind me volunteering - I'd just really missed Weekword!

  2. Of course, I don't mind you volunteering... I'm pleased as punch.... thanks for getting us going again.

  3. My mum got me the Paper Engineer books, I haven't had a chance to try them yet!

  4. The Paper Engineer book looks so interesting - I love popups. Thanks for the inspiration

  5. I love learning more about you from every post and think it's pretty cool your daughter is a disabilities rights lawyer (to be!). Remind me to call her if I ever need help with a knock down drag out with my employer ;) As for the Smithsonian How-To's, those sound fantastic, especially the constructon of pop-ups-I'll bet you can make all kinds of amazing little treasures. As always, fun post and so glad I'm back to enjoy!
