My son's school does a basket raffle with the seasonal concerts. This season I have been asked to solicit for donations. I am hoping someone here would have some things they crafted, or picked up that we could put on offer. All money raised will be going towards the students in some form. Be it pers...

Re: Daylight Savings Warning

yeah, this warning comes a little late for me. I forgot to set the clocks ahead, and had to work in the morning. Luckily my kids are really reliable alarm clocks themselves.

Crapshots idea: kitty creator

Cue a cat playing with a ball of yarn or two.
Switch to a cast member wearing a knit sweater being asked about it. Cat made it.

Needless to say I will be contacting Fangamer back and returning the money. I'm just happy I got the shirts and they we...

Re: Politics and the Vague Fear of Something Called Donald Trump

Being a northern neighbour, I feel a fair bit of fear.

But I am very happy to be seeing a number of videos of American politicians decrying the actions of Trump.

Good to know it arrived safe Minni, and that you like it ^_^ I love it! I also now have a use for my quilting frame. I just have to go out and buy some proper cordage as most of my yarns are too flimsy for the weaving. I love it, my husband less so. I even figured out how to make diamonds! Once I f...

I'm am getting very angry at the operator of the laundry machines in our apartment building. They owe me 30$, and they keep telling me new things that are required for getting the refund. First I was told I just had to wait. Then I was told to just send a copy of the reciept. Now I'm being told they...

Thank you, Marcus and Minnichi! It was well worth the wait! I am glad you enjoy it. The youngest ran off with another part of your gift and it is somewhere among their toys. If I find it I can send it along. But I am very glad that at least one of your cats likes the quilt. Marcus thinks Trouble is...

Our Santees won't receive their gifts until after Christmas. I did not expect this. But because of this I will be adding a bit more to the packages t...

Re: What Does Your Username Mean to You?

I really liked Chobits a while ago (10 years ago I think). MinniChi turned out to be super easy to remember and most sites have it available. If not, I just add more i's. Which always works out for me.

This belongs in the thread of Win more than the Mixed. It's great improvement if you're noticing it. Congratulations!

My 7 year old is making dinner tonight. Nuggets and KD, but I'm sick, so it's amazing. Mixed emotions because the Mom part of me is just a little scared he's going to get hurt (a little burn doesn't scare me, the big burn does). The professional cook in me is afraid he'll ruin it. But I'm so proud o...
