Jack and Lulu

You are about to learn 3 alarmingly scary things about my childhood.

1) I absolutely loved the Karate Kid movies and thought I would someday marry Ralph Macchio. I had posters and scrapbooks upon scrapbooks filled with his photos that I collected from Teen Beat magazine. When he married that nurse in real life, I was so upset that I cried for days. Really.

2) My mother and I designed an entire barbie dream house, complete with duvets, pillows, rugs, and mini-towels with trim, all handmade. I designed little clothing templates and she'd stay up sewing until the wee hours. Once a design freak, always a design freak, I guess.

3) I collected scratch and sniff stickers, including those nasty pizza ones, in a series of I don't know how many photo albums, along with various other stickers ranging from Hello Kitty to puffy stickers.

Anyone else care to share?

Next topic. Based on the above #3, how did I miss these Jack + Lulu scatch and sniff cards? Aren't they the cutest? I just spotted them for the first time today, and they smell positively yummy.
