Artist
The Kuipera have lived in New Holland for 25 years,
having moved cast from Holland. Michigan. While Dona
enjoys living in the New Holland area she said she misses
the water in Michigan. They have three childrcd: Ken
neth, 24; Kathy 23, married with two children; and Kerry,
18, a freshman at Penn State majoring in physical
education. Her children, Dona said, loved the idea of the
coloring book, and “we all found out a lot of things we
didn’t know before."
Homemaker Dona declares, “I never worked outside
the home at all." In Michigan before she was married,
however, she worked on fashion layouts and window
displays.
Her artistic talent is natural. She said, “I always loved
all kinds of crafts. I do one thing for awhile and then
something else." Her abilities ranged from leather tooling
to oil painting.
Dona feels very much a part of the poultry industry
however, and three years ago began what she describes as
"a small mail order business” in which she distributed
egg carton craft booklets, and occasionally unprinted egg
cartons themselves.
This ties in closely with her husband’s work, of course,
since the requests come from coupons printed on the lid of
some of the plastic cartons he distributes. In three years
she said she has mailed about 20,000 sets of craft booklets.
Now that she has seen the successful creation of her
educational coloring book, Dona feels there could be quite
an endless variety of follow-up publications. She has
already begun work on “The Dairy Cow and her Mar
velous Milk." Many other topics have been suggested to
her.
Dona’s pride in her creation is obvious and well
deserved. She said, “We feel it is a good, true honest story
for children." It is also the first of its kind.
The poultry industry stands to gain a lot of goodwill
through of the coloring book - and children and their
mothers stand to leam a lot about “The Incredible Edible
Egg!”

Ida’s
Notebook
The first day of hunting
season and the hunters will
converge on the farmlands
from every direction. There
appears to be alot of grey
squirrels in the woods but the
nut supply is not plentiful.
Some black walnut trees
which bore bushels last year
did not have one nut this
year. Luckily other trees
bore some and we have a
reserve from last fall.
Last weekend our children
had a craft fair to give
people ideas for Christmas
gifts which could be made
instead of simply bought at
the last minute. I showed
several kinds of nuts from
the hull stage to the dried
stage to the glass iar of
kernels ready for cookies
and cakes. Many people
asked questions about drying
them and whether or not
shellbarks and shagbarks
are hickorys. They are.
I also displayed jams,
jellies and relishes which

can be used as gifts plus a
dozen verities of canned
goods.
But the item which
received the most attention
was the fresh and dried
assortment of teas. I served
hot and cold samples and
many folk couldn’t believe
that tea leaves plus water
and sugar produced what
they were drinking. They
kept asking what “brand"
tea I used.
Sometimes, I get so
frustrated when I can’t
accomplish all that I want to
do. They say we do what we
really want to do but I’d say
not all that we want to do.
While I’m painting window
frames I’m not potting
flowers for winter and there
is a certain urgency in Oc
tober. When I’m being
chauffer for someone I’m not
making that apple pie I’ve
had on my mind. And so one
picks and chooses among the
many chores and respon
sibilities of a farm wife.
