A little variation of a childhood learning tool.
The same: Free. The different: Two scrapbooking classes. Check out the Big Picture Classes blog for two cute projects...a mini album in a lunchbox and a family tree home decor piece. The album was designed by Stacy Julian but you'll see several other interpretations of the project by other well-known scrapbookers on the video presentation of the class. There's a kit you can buy if you want to re-create the class project exactly but like all BPC classes, you're encouraged to take the idea and put your own spin on it. Like the album, there's also a video leading you through the creation of the home decor piece designed by Wendy Smedley. You can find both classes here.
The same: Free. The different: Appetizer and drink. Outback Steakhouse is thanking veterans and active duty military for their service to our country by giving them a free blooming onion and a Coke in celebration of Veterans Day. The offer is good November 7 through November 11 which is, of course, Veterans Day. You'll need to present a Uniform Services ID card (or retired), a membership card from the VFW or American Legion or even just a picture of you in uniform. See this web page for details then take your favorite veteran out for a treat.
See...the tool still works; you learned something.
