Marian: What's the smallest thing in the world, Mom? Guess.

Me (thinking "nano..", realizing I wasn't really up on my particle physics, then finally just adjusting to what she might have learned in 2nd grade science): A cell.

Marian: Correct. I was going to say toothpick, but I forgot all about cells by then.

We just moved. So sorting and purging and saving are on our minds right now.

Audrey: Marian is such a pack rat.

Marian: I am not. I'm a crafty rat.

Ah, yes. Pack rattiness...or rather... craft rattiness is the true sign of a happy craft artist. You should see my craft closet. Wow! There's a lot of happy clutter in there. Miss Jan
