A Little Birdie Told Me!

Collage Arch recently created
 and Dryer Sheets
A little Birdie told me............ actually my niece found this out the hard way:) These dryer sheets that many of us use in our "art" collage projects can cause lots of damage to your clothes dryer. We all clean our lint filter, right? Sure, but these dryer sheets can build up a film on the filter that we can't see.  Dryer filters are made of a mesh material that filters the lint, so take out your dryer filter and run hot water over it, if the water puddles and doesn't run right through it can cause your heating unit to burn out or worse, start a fire.  If you want you clothes dryer to work for a  long time, once every six months remove the filter and wash with hot soapy water and an old tooth brush to remove invisible build up.

Lights, Camera, Action

Lights, Camera, Action is the theme for these tags. These were created with a photo of my Mom from when she was young. Mom worked for RKO Studios in Hollywood, CA as a secretary after marrying my Dad. Imagine the stories she could tell and movie stars she met, (this must of been a fun time in her life:.) I thought this pic looked like Mom could have  been reading for a part in a film.  This was taken during the years 1929-1930. Mom really wanted to be a New York City Rockette but married my Dad and came to So. CA instead. They had a great life together and were married over 60 years.
