VOTE VOTE VOTE

What do we want? CHANGE! How do we get it? VOTE! (that’s one way, anyway) Vote EVERY election because change starts locally and becomes global. Two versions of this pattern are available as FREE PDFs, kits and kit/frame combos.

UPDATE: Two new free versions of this pattern with ADDED F-BOMB for EMPHASIS!

This is a take on an old political slogan in case you don’t recognize the vague reference, which explains my word choice. In this global community, what we do in the US makes a difference in the world (just as what other countries do influences us). Just look how the decisions of the current US administration have affected people across the globe. We must do better. So…VOTE! And don’t miss local elections. All of them. Please. xo

College Series: Snarky Latin

college, latin, cross stitch

Check out our new College Series — three snappy Latin PDF pattern designs! I realize I’m mixing Greek-ish borders with Latin phrases, but that was just a pop quiz to see if you’re paying attention.

I got these phrases from the always-awesome McSweeney’s. The article by Dani Bostick is called Honest Latin Mottoes For Your Overrated University. But what do these mean?

Noli hic rem facere ridiculum =”Don’t Be An Idiot Here”.

Dormire quam superare = “To Sleep Rather Than to Excel”.

Convivium, Fornicatio, Prae Amnibus Aes =”Partying, fornication, and above all debt” .

Stitch ’em up and send ’em off to your favorite college student. It’s sure to brighten their day and confuse their peers. Your work here is done!
