Do you have names for things that perhaps you have grown up with or fun names that your family understand but others don’t?
Well in our house a Butterfly has been a Flutterby since I was small and for the past 22 years or so (blame my hubby Brian) Hedgehogs have been Hodgepigs !
Now quite often whilst I am talking at a home workshop ( stampin’ party) I can see by the glazed expression that I have used a word that perhaps I need to explain, the best one so far has been whilst using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set…………..you need to colour in the tree stalk…………..what do you mean you call it a tree trunk………! Isn’t it a tree stalk ?
I am sure you can see where I am going with this, I never ever call a Hedgehog a Hedgehog, it’s a Hodgepig, so whilst explaining this card the other day I had the customers in fits because they had never heard of these 2 creatures………… A Flutterby on a Hodgepig……..!
