Seuss' Imagination Blog Hop

“Think left and think right and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”
― Dr. Seuss

Don't hop on pop but hop on top of the Dr. Seuss Blog Hop, where a bunch of talented people came up with their own interpretations of the wonderful imagination of Dr. Seuss. The skies the limit when you have an imagination like Dr. Seuss and talent like those in this hop. Our hop today is hostessed by Jearise in Lorby's World (That's me!) and so this is the beginning my friend.

I have some fun blog candy for this hop. I have a stuffed Cat in the Hall and a fun Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft plus a $10 gift card to Michaels. I know they're silly but doesn't that follow in the steps of Dr. Seuss?

How to win: 1. Become a follower of my blog  2. Leave a comment letting me know about #1 and what you think of my project.

I had to get creative again in Inkscape and this time made the famous Cat in the Hat hat. But I turned it into a vase with some silly flowers and I filled the vase with goodies to eat.


Hat: own design using Inkscape and my Eclips
Flowers: die cuts for my cuddle bug attached to large sized paperclips

Last but not least, here is a great site to go to where you will find all sorts of fun foods and goodies to delight your little ones today. Enjoy: Babble

This is my favorite, kid friendly Dr Seuss site: Seussville

    2. Jearise, thanks for hosting this hop! So much fun. Love the hat and flowers super cute... hoping I get some ideas to show my daughter so Austin can have a Dr. Seuss themed birthday party. I was just thinking for a boy how cute would it be to have Thing 1 and Thing 2 or even the fish sticking out of the hat.
