ops…..sorry….it’s “each of your post”…at least,I think so….it’s time to brush up on English grammar….

No worries. I understood just fine. What’s your native language?

I’m bilingual,an Italian and Croatian speaker (born in Croatia from Croatian mum and Italian dad) and I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and French languages and their literatures.I’m blessed with a nice knowledge that allows me to communicate widely and learn from so many talented and creative people as YOU ARE.I’m not a believer but i thank god for that great luck every day.

Wow, Tajana! I’m so impressed! I know Americans are always saying this, but it’s true — In our country, most of us don’t get much opportunity to use the languages we learn in school. Although that is changing, as our demographic shifts. I started out learning French in school, and even after 8 years of study, I still can’t speak it. Maybe I can learn from you. 🙂 Your story is very inspirational, and I’m so thankful that I’ve met you. Hugs to you too!

You are too kind!But don’t be impressed, it is just a matter of circumstances and practice.Besides meeting nice and great people all around the world,the main reason I write my blog in English is to keep my knowledge alive.French language is difficult to me,too.I started to study it quite late,when I was in high school,and I have to think a lot before speaking.I try to practice it by reading books in original language…George Simenon is quite easy …on the other hand,internet offers a lot of pages and sites with easy exercices…But,don’t worry,usually,when you need something,you learn it quickly.

Sounds like there’s hope for me and French yet! Thanks, Tajana!

I love their choice of costumes — especially Frida Kahlo! You are so clever : D
October 30, 2013 at 2:31 pm
Aw, thanks, Anna! I had a lot of fun putting them together.
October 30, 2013 at 4:16 pm
I agree 🙂 a fantastic choice! 🙂

How sweet! I now see that the adorable creativity runs in the family! Deca Podge is a wonderful addition to the cast, though I worry she may hover a bit too much over her daughter… 😉
October 31, 2013 at 10:24 am
haha! I’ll have to work that in. In real life, my mom is shorter than me and she doesn’t like to “hōver over” as she says it. 🙂

LOVED your Halloween comic and nice to meet Mama Podge. Loooooved the costumes and very “punny”
October 31, 2013 at 10:20 am
Thanks, Sharon! I’m really glad I was able to work her into this comic — having just come from visiting my own mother, it was quite appropriate. 🙂

Love it……Meap I love your pilots outfit 🙂

MEAP says, “Thanks! Tonight you can call me Zoomie.” 🙂

Love it 🙂 Hi Zombie

They are awesome, love the costumes. I want a hodge batman. Did you make MEAP’s jacket? oh and welcome Deca Podge.
November 1, 2013 at 12:05 pm
Thanks! I wish I could say that I made MEAP’s jacket, but it came on a teddy bear my dad gave me. As for the Hodge Batman, I’m thinking of doing a series of crochet costume patterns to fit the squirrels! I’ll keep you posted.:)
November 1, 2013 at 6:45 pm
That would be awesome to have costume patterns they should dress up as superheros more often they look great. MEAP rocks that jacket!
June 13, 2014 at 3:09 pm
YES!! I can just see Podge as Wonder Woman!! 😀
June 16, 2014 at 12:14 pm
That’s a fantastic idea! Since last year, I have been planning on dressing them up again for Halloween and sharing patterns for their crochet costumes. I do believe Podge will be Wonder Woman this year. Great idea, Grace!
