It's no secret I truly adore Dr. Seuss! I have written quite a few posts about it and collected them here and even themed my son's graduation party around a "Oh the Places You'll Go!" Seuss theme. You can see some of the ideas and peeks at the party on my Pinboard here
Just a shameless 40+ year infatuation with the serious silliness he brought to this world- he taught wonderful lessons with a colorful smile- and honestly- I can't get through the "Places You'll Go" book without tearing up a little. Each year, on March 2nd, we pull out the striped hats and celebrate his birthday. Sometimes with green deviled eggs- though no one eats them- they can't seem to get past the green! So, most times, I'll pull out the striped hats and we will read a book or two together. It's one of my favorite ways to brighten up the cold grey days of march- and really- love of Seuss aside- that's what these little celebrations are all about. Adding a little bit of fun to the everyday- finding something to celebrate and then making a little bit of a big thing about it. It's like I tell the boys everyday when I drop them off at school- don't have a good day- make one!
This week, I am highlighting the ForeverJoy FUNTASTICAL collection that I designed heavy with Seuss inspiration- fun out loud colors play perfectly with soft krafts and florals- and the word art is filled with heartfelt sentiments that have become some on my favorite designs. (You can see them in action in the video below!) I hope you get to spend a few months March 2nd enjoying a little silliness in honor of the great Doctor!
