I said I’d come back to it, so here we go …
I wanted to call this department Genie’s Gems & Gleanings for I wanted space to write about interesting things I’d learned that might not be related to scrapbooking yet might interest you. (Perhaps I flatter myself!)
It proved to be too much of a mouthful so it was left as Genie’s Gems.
Anyway, the idea of gleaning is to gather, collect or pull together; collecting bits as you go along; and often refers to things you learn along the way in life. So you can see where I was coming from.
