Late in 2007 to early 2008, I wrote a 300 page project book for girls...

I never had it published and want to make that a goal of mine to do by 2015.  In the mean time, I have decided to share the pages of it with you, my blog readers.  This book was written for girls ages 8-12.  It is a collection of ideas, poetry, quotes and sayings that I have been collecting since I was 8.  Girl (I)land is intended as a project book, a self esteem tool, and a keepsake journal for girls.  Girl (I)land is a collection of things ranging from the 1920's through current times. Nostalgic it is! Enjoy!     I am releasing the pages in the order they appear in the table of contents.
