Singing PollyDoodle All the Day....

My bloggy friend JulieMom is very crafty and sew-y and talented. She has posted many tutorials on her blog that have been useful to me. I made pajamas last year from one of her tutorials for crying out loud!

She launched PollyDoodle Designs last month and she has a Facebook page and everything. It's very official.

AND....she's having a giveaway of some of her beautiful hand-sewn hair pretties.

But before I tell you about that, did you  hear this story? I read it yesterday. Too lazy to look up the link. So this high school student did some volunteer hours in one of her local 3rd grade classrooms. At the end, she wanted to give the students a treat. She filled up some plastic Easter eggs with candy. She asked the teacher would it be OK to give them out. Teacher said let me check with administration.

Administration said, yes. BUT, she could not call them "Easter Eggs" but instead had to call them "Spring Spheres."

I cannot tell you how much that annoys me.

So she said, "I have some spring spheres for you" and the kids all yelled "EASTER EGGS!!!"

Anyway, if you don't like the name "Easter Giveaway Extravaganza", feel free to call it "Spring Giveaway Special" or whatever floats your boat. We're all about being politically correct here at The Family Revised.

So, go like her Facebook page and enter the giveaway (there are easy directions on the Facebook page) She'll draw a random number winner who will get TEN hair pretties!!! BUT, she has to get 300 Facebook fans by Easter.

So get to likin' and sharin' the springtime love!


  1. Aw, thanks Brenda! And that story makes me mad too! I'm surprised they were allowed to bring in candy, after that Facebook post you shared about school lunches....scary place public schools!

  2. Spring spheres. That's ridiculous. Thanks for the info on the giveaway!

  3. Thats funny. Especially since the word Easter come from ancient Egyptian pagan worship of Ishtar. It's getting more ridiculous by the day in the PC "sphere".

    I am too lazy to leave two comments so I'll comment on your latest post here. I'm sure that's bad bloggy form but hey...I'm supposed to be cleaning the kitchen so I'm saving time. Right?

    You've inspired me with the "Get the books out of the kids room". The big bookshelf in my younger boys room is always a disaster. It stays neat for exactly 1 day after I organize it and that is only because they sleep and do school downstairs. Keep posting about your organization epiphanies. I take notes.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
