Can you believe it’s First Friday already?  No Foolin’!  I selected just three questions this time to keep things more streamlined.  If you have a question for the next installment of First Friday Q&A, email those to my NEW address: .  Go ahead and do it today.  Trust me, the next First Friday will be here before you know it!

So here are the topics (with the time where they appear in the vlog) and supplemental links for today:

Ways to consider breaking up the task:

Hitting and Aggression (3:02)

Love this book: Practical Solutions to Practically Every Problemby Steffan Saifer

  • Curbly (Skip the piping and zipper.)
  • Sew Mama Sew (Again, skip the extra frills.)
  • eHow (Start at step 3, using foam instead of the foam rubber they refer to.)

(And I have to thank Diane, of In My Own Style, for helping me out with an assignment recently.  She has an inspiring home deco blog you really should check out!)

If you want to buy them pre-made, you might try Amazon.

Now it’s your turn.  Please add to the conversation!  Do you have a great handwriting activity?  Lots of experience addressing hitting and aggression?  Have you made or bought soft blocks?  Please share!
