A Budding Artist Creates a Thought Provoking Piece for her Grandma

When I saw the masterpiece my friend Jenny made for her grandma when she was 11, I knew it had to be featured today for all the world to see!! It is a gorgeous birthday card with the heads of her family members glued onto random animals and extremely fit people. My absolute favorite is her bikini clad dad in the upper left corner, declaring "HEY! MUM! I've got a BIG surprise for you!!". Imagine her grandma's shock upon receiving such a work of art. Thanks Jenny, for sharing your work of art with us!! You made my day with this, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone on this one!!

And now for some disappointing news. I don't know how to tell you this. I guess I'll just blurt it out: I am starting to run low on Fifth Grade Journal entries (luckily I was only in fifth grade for so long!). I beg of you, if you have any journal entries or art projects or anything from your past that might bring other people joy, please send to There is no monetary compensation for your generosity, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing you've made millions of people smile (that's how many people I assume read my blog, anyway!). Names can be omitted if necessary. SEND TODAY and you will be my new best friend (unless you are already one of my best friends, in which case I will love you even more than I already do!).
