Flannel Friday is all kinds of f-words (the good kind):
fun, free, fabulous, friendly, functional, fantastic, flannel-y, fly, fascinating, funky, famous, facebook-y, festive, fancy, fierce, and fantabulous! Thank you to all who participate in Flannel Friday. You help make my job more of the good f-words, too.
Oh, and for this introverted storytimer Flannel Friday is one big non-f word, too: community. I have virtually (and Mel IRL, hi Mel!) met so many fabulous people through Flannel Friday. Right now I must admit I’m mostly a lurker. I’m like that kid in storytime who doesn’t say much at the library, but then goes home and sings the words to every storytime song. As a part-timer (with two other non-library jobs) who spends almost all my work time doing storytimes and programs, I have very little time to actually spend preparing them. The Flannel Friday pinterest account is an inspirational time-saving journey and a creative jumpstarter for this storytimer who almost never even uses felt, and the Flannel Friday Facebook page is an amazing resource on just about every aspect of programming. I have a someday goal to do more Flannel Friday posts and give back what I can to the community that helps me so much. In the meantime, thank you, Flannel Friday community for your ideas and friendship, and thank you to those who keep this fabulous flannel kingdom running efficiently.
And of course, thank you Mel, for dreaming up this fun, free, fabulous, friendly, functional, fantastic, flannel-y, fly, fascinating, funky, famous, facebook-y, festive, fancy, fierce, and fantabulous group.
