Time to Put on Your Silly Hat!

So Emmitt wrote us a note and told us about an on-line class that would be just perfect for our Mum.
(We pointed out Mum is terribly untalented, unlike Emmitt's Mum
- just so we are on a level playing field).
This here's Emmitt lookin at'cha
This class is on The Art of Silliness. (Mum should excel at this).

This lady, Carla (on the right) is really talented
and is doing the on-line class. We don't know
about the horses except Mum likes'em

Every day, April 1-April 30, you get an Activity Sheet (just like when you were in grade school!) and you take 10 minutes a day and complete the assignment. What sort of assignments you ask? (We asked)

"Every day I will create an Activity Sheet just for you. Worksheets may include one or ten of the following: drawing exercises (can’t draw? YES YOU CAN!), journaling prompts, a poem to illustrate, writing exercises, more drawing games, collage prompts, arty puzzles, scribbling assignments… (just to name a few). FUN!"

How much fun is this? Well Mum wasn't sure. The cost is less than a $1 a day (yeah, try and find that much fun in a month and have something to show for it), but Mum still wasn't sure. So I really used my persuasive magic and mentioned she could use ME as her theme for all the activities! (Because, it is all about me right?) While she had a weak moment, Cooper and I took the magic money card and signed her up and we are counting the days to April 1st! Whoo hoo!

So where is this going? Well, Mum will do the daily assignments and post them here on my blog (the results not the activity sheets because that would be cheating I think), every day during April.  Remember, it is going to be all about me, Dozer, not Cooper or Dottie. Me. Because honestly, I really am the most interesting corgi on this blog.

Now I need a nap to get ready for our assignments....

At least it will keep her attentions focused on the best little short legged doggie in the house. Most curious exercises.

Well... You are definitely a great subject to concentrate on, Dozer, but maybe you might let Coop or Dottie each have at least one of those days during the month? OC
