Purple Star Lenses by scarlettohairy

Updated on August 30, 2017

My Squidoo Articles With Purple Stars

I don't have many Squidoo lenses with purple stars, but I have a few. So I wanted to make this page to show them off!

Squidoo awards purple stars as an honor for good lenses that are nominated by other Squidoo writers. It's an honor, first, that another writer thinks an article is good enough to get a purple star and second for Squidoo to think the article is good enough!

I want to thank readers and Squidoo for my purple stars!

Purple Star Lenses

by Scarlett O'Hairy

I received these Purple Stars before March 2013.

Books About Abraham Lincoln
I'm from the Land of Lincoln (that's Illinois, in case you didn't know). I grew up thinking Abraham Lincoln was the best president...

Brain Teasers for Kids
Brain teasers for kids offer hours of fun, whether you're a kid or not.

Free Downloadable Labels
The variety of free downloadable labels available online is as close as your fingertips. Why buy downloadable labels when there are so many free labels to download? No reason!

Geology Activities for Kids
Geology activities for kids help make geology come to life. Studying the earth sciences helps kids learn about their world in a real, hands-on way.

Ghost Signs
Ghost signs are those old painted signs on the sides of brick buildings that are faded and sometimes hard to see. These nostalgic old signs are now just a ghost of their previous life. These old advertising signs are also sometimes called "wall dogs." Unlike billboards or standalone signs, these signs were painted directly onto the buildings.

Half Cup of Coffee
Maybe you've seen these cups in an antique store or you made the mistake of asking for "just a half a cup of coffee" and were served your coffee in one of these half cups. I have a collection of half cups. If you can call two of them a collection, that is.

How to Make a Hamburger Pendant with Found Objects
If you're fond of food, especially hamburgers and like to wear your food, here's how to make a hamburger pendant with found objects. For this delicious craft, I used bottle caps, nuts, and washers.

How to Make a Tin Can Man
I adore the funky and absurd, so when I gathered my collection of bottle caps, some rusty wire, and a colorful tin can, I was so happy when this tin can man* emerged.

If I Could Be Ann Rule for a Week
My assignment, should I chose to accept it: Step into the shoes of popular true crime writer Ann Rule for one week. Yes, I was recently challenged by a Squid Giant to be Ann Rule for a week. I have pondered the challenge and chosen to accept it. Will I self destruct or do the Queen of True Crime proud?

Kids Crafts -- Online Articles by Peggy Hazelwood
Trust me. Kids are naturally creative, and if you have some age-appropriate kids crafts ready to go, you can make a there's-nothing-to-do afternoon more fun in a snap. This is a collection of my online articles that will help you be prepared with crafts when you need them, find new ideas for fun crafts, and help you save money when making kids craft projects..

Lizard Shots
Lizards are reptiles that can get themselves in some strange positions. At least, I think they can. These lizard shots (no, this is not a drink recipe!) show you just how strange these critters are.

Movies About King Edward and Wallis Simpson
Face it, when something unexpected happens, we all love to watch, so when there is a royal scandal made into movies, we certainly watch them. When Edward, Prince of Wales met Mrs. Wallis Simpson in 1931, no one knew the scandal that would ensue. Edward was heir apparent to the British throne, destined to be Great Britain's next king. Wallis Simpson was a married American woman who had been previously married and divorced.

Movies About Writers
I am a big reader. And I'm nosy. After I read a really good book (and sometimes after reading a mediocre book), I love to check out the writer. I Google them. I visit their Web site. I read interviews they've given. Basically, I look for whatever I can find. And to take that nosiness a step further, if there is a biography about the writer, I usually read it. An autobiography is even better.

Sour Cream Cake Recipes
Sour cream cake recipes make a great cake that is moist and flavorful. And the best part, this cake recipe is easy to make! Sour cream gives cake a moist texture and a tangy flavor that's not too sweet.

Tips for Selling Books on Amazon
I've been selling used books on Amazon for several years and have learned from trial and error (some trial and a whole lot of error) what works and what doesn't to actually sell books.

Purple Stars of Your Own

You, too, deserve a purple star. Here are some items with purple stars to make your very own.

      I got my first purple star today and LOTD. I was definitely doing a little dance to celebrate. You have a very impressive list of purple star lenses. Awesome work!
