Happy Summer! New Daisy, Junior And Cadette Resources!

Happy Summer! New Daisy, Junior And Cadette Resources! Summer is such a different creature than it was when I was a kid in the 70’s. Growing up in Southern California, we were out of school the third week of June and didn’t go back until after Labor Day weekend. We spent barefoot days riding our bikes, playing outside, eating drippy popsicles and picking plums from the trees in our backyards. I remember a lot of stubbed toes! We generally drank TONS of Kool-Aid, ate Zingers, Laffy Taffy and Abba-Zabbas. We played in the sprinklers, watched late-night movies with our parents […]

End of the Year: Bridging and Ceremonies

End of the Year: Bridging and Ceremonies Can you feel it? Summer is in the air. The school year is winding down and it won’t be long before our days and nights will include BBQs, swimming and sunshine. But before that, we have end of the year celebrations–graduations, bridging and awards ceremonies. I am super happy to be kept busy with custom orders. You all have the greatest ideas and I’m lucky enough to help you execute your vision. It keeps me inspired. A New Freebie!

Looking for Camps you Attended as a Girl Scout?

Looking for Camps you Attended as a Girl Scout? ***Update July 2020*** Unfortunately this site is no longer active 🙁 Such a bummer. I wish I had downloaded some pics before it went offline. The domain is still registered but there isn’t any content. Here is by far the latest and greatest of websites I’ve found for Girl Scout nostalgia.  We are so lucky to have the internet.  We have access to a vast array of OPP (Other People’s Photos) from before many of us were even born.  Since I have very few photographs from my year’s in Girl Scouts […]

Courage, Confidence & Character…80’s Style!

Courage, Confidence & Character…80’s Style! Anyone who knows me, knows how nostalgic I am about my three years as a Girl Scout.  I was a Junior from 1980-1983, back when 4th, 5th and 6th graders were Juniors and Daisies hadn’t been created yet. In 1982, my troop took a weekend trip to Skyland Ranch near Banning, California. Sitting in the lodge one night at Skyland, eating chocolate pudding out of ice cream cones, the leaders gave us an activity:  design a badge for the upcoming skate party.  This was a big deal!  Not only was the party going to be […]
