Inchies and Quisps

Along with the classic LTC's, I also make many undersized cards.

The top section is my Epcot Inchies.  When the park opened each pavilion had an icon.

The middle is the stamps from my 3/14/15 Pi Day event.

The bottom is my Harry Potter Runes Inchies. 0-9.

The Sound of Music

Name:     DO-RE-MI
Created:  Feb 2014
Swap:     none

Let's start at the very beginning, A very good place to start. 
When you read you begin with A B C...

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread...

Once you have these notes in your heads, 
You can sing a million different tunes by mixing them up.
