There are so many possibilities for the kinds of layouts that can be created with the April kits from JBS Mercantile, as evidenced in the DT gallery. The Papercrafting Kit, for instance, contains a bunch of bright and colorful papers, perfect for a springtime layout. So of course I created a layout with the word "CORPSE" in the title.
That may appear to be a non sequitur, but it applies to the spring, since the corpse in question is a corpse flower:
So what's the big deal with this flower? Well, not only is it one of the largest flowers in the world, but when it blooms, it smells like -- you guessed it -- a corpse. Some have compared the smell to rotting fish guts.
When Z and I realized that we would be walking away from the site without knowing what a corpse smells like, we were a little disappointed but, admittedly, relieved. I'm not sure I want that smell in my sense memory!
I'm off to attend to the furkid. She's in her fifth most common locale and posture -- throwing herself against the door to let us know she wants in. Charming.
