100Days100Women, Day 36: Emily Hahn is one of those figures who when you begin to tell their story, it starts sounding like you’re just making stuff up. But no, it’s all true.

Hahn got a mining engineering degree (the first woman to do so at the U of Wisconsin), worked for the New Yorker, walked across Central Africa alone, worked for the Red Cross, traveled to Shanghai and fell in with prominent Chinese political figures, married an English Officer, moved to New York while he chilled with the kids in England, authored 54 books and hundreds of articles, authored some of the most popular travel guides of the mid-century, oh! and had a pet gibbon named Mr. Mills. Am I forgetting some? Certainly.

Not bad for a girl from St. Louis ;)

Hey!

I’m very excited to show you guys the final product for those memory matching game cards I’ve been posting. This little set includes a handmade box (new favorite thing to do? possibly) with dividers, a pack of 24 cards, and a booklet with information about the bird species. I’m not entirely happy with the booklet, so I think I’ll go back and redesign it when I have time, but I had a ton of fun with the box and the cards.

I’m trying to figure out an efficient way to make more copies of this to sell. Any interest in that kind of thing?
