First off….this is my first Official Review!  So, I hope I remember everything, and do this Review it’s due Justice!!

 I was Stumbling and came across the site of Tiny Happy and what I found on her blog was so Creative! She recycles old childrens books and uses the pages that are falling out to put on bags that she puts her handmade crafts in when she sells them. Now, for a more accurate and better description of “how and what” you should go and check out this page on her site.

Now, time for the Review!  I liked a lot of her pictures, her crafts, and the way she writes, and for her originality!  I am going to do my Review mostly on her Craftiness…and give TinyHappy a rating of

Have you Stumbled??? December 18, 2006

Have you Stumbled Upon lately?  My husband is a guru in the internet community, and he is always finding new techie tools and telling me about them.  If you haven’t signed up on StumbleUpon.com you should do it right away! It is still fairly new…but, it is a great resource for anyone who is wanting to look up great sites!  The reason it is different from most search engines, is because other people just like you and I are recommending their favorite sites or sites that they have been to and liked.  You can also blog there, which isn’t what interested me, but, hey….you never know!  Anyway, I am hooked!  I love this tool bar!!  And, I love all the great info that I have found!  Anyone who reads my blog know that I mostly try to write about a subject and post it like an article, but, since I have a new partner and I do this very same thing for several of our sites, I decided that I would still try and keep up my blog here, and do what I have always done, but also I wanted to be a bit more personal and share some things that mean something to me.  Anyway, here is a link to my Stumble page, you should check it out!!

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community December 2, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — scrapncraft @ 10:49 pm

I have two children who are hard of hearing.  I recently received an email entitled “How will Sign Language Survive?”  This peaked my curiosity.  I had to read more. 

Jaime Berke at About.com’s Your Guide to Deafness, had this to say:

We know that sign language will survive (it is too popular to die out completely) but I am wondering how well it will survive as more deaf babies receive cochlear implants and hear well enough that they do not need sign language as they grow up. Are we going to see a marked reduction in sign language use in the next generation? This question was brought to my mind by the article link posted by LoopyLes on the forum. The article, a New Scientist magazine article, starts off with “COULD the end of sign language for deaf children be in sight?”

After reading this article, and inserting my own viewpoint, I came to the conclusion that most of us hearing people don’t understand enough about the deaf world to give the assumption that there may not be a deaf community.  I had a lot of mixed feelings about this article, but after reading it, I thought that I should pass this along for others to read.
