What do you see?

Someone sent me a message on facebook, it said, "Napmom? Where are you?"

I'm here! I promise. I. am. here.

Lookie Lookie!

So, my mom kinda got me to dip my toe in the water of the crazy couponing world. Seriously, not to offend any crazy couponers out there, but the women on those tv shows are not people I would be friends with. I see them as pushy and abrasive... and even sometimes rude and snooty. Disclaimer: This is only my opinion and I haven't watched that many shows, to be honest. I am sure that some of them are sweet, demure, and... ahem... humble.

Nonetheless, I am following a couple of coupon blogs and I made my first run to Target (coupons in hand) and came out with some FREE or almost free back-to-school stuff.  My loot?  10 papermate pens for 2 cents, 3 free rolls of scotch tape, and a free sharpie.  Plus, I saved half off of some facial products that I needed and earned a $5 Target gift card towards my next purchase.  Admittedly, it was time consuming to chase down the coupons and I had to work with the cashier because everything didn't ring up correctly at the register, but in the end, it was a great trip.

Also, I found this 20 Page Photo Flipbook for $5.00 Shipped deal.  I get great information spam mail about similar deals all of the time.  So, this is not a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  However, I have been thinking about doing a book for one of the kids and since (1) I had all of the pictures I needed and (2) the price is right (only $5 including shipping -- wowser!), I ordered a flip book. 

Where have I been?  I could have been blogging, but I created a flip book instead.

Brody is so so so super excited about his book, The Carrot Seed and gardening in general.  He is the proudest gardener you could ever meet.

So, I made a gardening book based on the book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?"  Most of you are familiar with the book.  Here is my version.

Note:  All of the pages have the same border, text size, and text font.  I included the cover as an example.

Brody, Brody, what do you see?

I see a shovel looking at me.
Shovel , shovel what do you see?

I see a wheelbarrow looking at me.
Wheelbarrow, wheelbarrow, what do you see?

I see dirt looking at me.
Dirt, dirt, what do you see?

I see a tiny seed looking at me.
Tiny seed, tiny seed, what do you see?

I see the sun looking at me.
Sun, sun, what do you see?

I see a sister looking at me.
Sister, sister, what do you see?

I see a sprinkler looking at me.
Sprinkler, sprinkler, what do you see?

I see bug poison a watering can looking at me.
Watering can, watering can, what do you see?
{okay, I left out the part about the bug poison mixture}

I see weeds looking at me.
Weed, weed, what do you see?

I see a little tomato looking at me.
Little tomato, little tomato, what do you see?

I see a big tomato looking at me.
Big tomato, big tomato, what do you see?

I see a green pepper looking at me.
Green pepper, green pepper, what do you see?

I see cabbage looking at me.
Cabbage, cabbage, what do you see?

I see a carrot looking at me.
Carrot, carrot, what do you see?

I see a sunflower looking at me.
Sunflower, sunflower, what do you see?

I see a great vegetable gardener looking at me.

The end.

I can't wait to get the book. 
It's small -- only 4 x 6. 
But, I'll take it for only five bucks.  Right?

Gather up 20 pictures and
head on over and make your own little book.
Won't ya?
