31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Midsummer Masquerade!!! Invite your partner swap round 9! send by 7-18 on: July 18, 2008 01:25:53 PM
I am still working steady on mine and recovering actually pretty quickly from being sick. I've already PM'd my partners & superhooker w/ a status update 2 days ago. Yesterday the baby had a very high fever so nothing got done. Sad But my receovery from the sinus infection and bronchitis is going steady (pray, knock on wood, whatever that I don't get sick all over again!) Oh and rira has been in contact recently w/ me about her swap stuff, you can mark her off your list of people who need to contact you if that's ok?

I do have a semi-spoiler for Mojen though! Tongue Yes, I ended up mod-ing ghilie's poppet pattern (it's blatant) and 'why no head?' You may ask..... Um can't give away the WHOLE sha-bang before she receives it! Roll Eyes

Notice all my HP behind the headless poppet? LOL!


Rira, no spoilers for you!!  Grin Well, maybe one.... but not now! I have to get back to work while the youngest is napping! (posting my box from mojen 1st!)

YAY! Charged the camera!

Here's my super-fucking awesome shit from gothchics!

What is this WHORE THING? Too small for a headband... too big for a cuff....


Why... it is a coffee cozy that fits on my Mommy mug perfect! (uh huh! Mommies are WHORES!! How do you think they get babies? LOL)


So perfect for me (it's ginormous! Will be a bedtime shirt I thinks).... a shirt!


Then a SEXY BITCH cozy I can use for my beers tonight! YAY! Perfect timing!


Inside that cozy was this awesome smelling bath salts..... I may have to use this next Saturday when hubby works the night shift.


Look! It's a Fucking Towel! LOL! Oh, I so get your humor girl! My husband asked, What? I said this is for when you ask me for a dish towel I can go-'here's your fucking towel asshole!'


A case for my glasses..... now if only I could find them!!


Inside was a little finger adjustable necklace! LOL I pointed it at my hubby last night when he made a smartass remark to me.


THANK YOU!!!! It's AWESOME!

THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Grin

Do you mean a seized nut?

My husband said heat it up so it expands and you can get it off. Heat it with a mini-butane/propane torch (you can get it at Home Depot/Lowe's for about $40).

OR

He said to douse it in WD-40, let it sit for about 30 minutes, try to get it off. If it doesn't come off, do it again- WD-40 for 30 minutes, try to get it off.

If that doesn't work, you will have to cut it (he says).

HTH.

Thanks Mojen! I'll be watching my mailbox!!!

Superhooker, I PM'd you and my swap partners. Don't THINK I will need an extension, but it may happen with Mojen's (I feel so crappy about that!) I kept having issues all around. Sad

I have been SO SICK for over a week. I barely slept at all at night and was dead to the world during every day. It's my allergies. They haven't been this bad in about 8 yrs. My kids have also been having a crappy time with their allergies. So yes, I am behind with my projects. I am babysitting today and then have to take my youngest to his Ped. Pulm. Specialist appointment, then I'll be working on my swaps once I get home.

RockstarMom, I feel for you. I'm in PA and my hubby can't understand why my allergies are so bad! So now I can say I'm not alone. Have you found anything that helps? I can't take the OTC stuff, wish there were some natural stuff we could all take and <POOF> allergies would all disappear!


Hey! I'm from PA! My allergies were awful!! I take Zyrtec, Singulair and also Flovent(for my asthma), baby takes Claritin, Singulair and Flovent. It wasn't working for either of us, we just had to wait for the pollen levels to drop and they finally did yesterday!! YAY!

Okay, I have to get to work on some swap stuff here while I can. We are taking my older kids to see Kung Fu Panda tonight! Yeah!

I have an apple tree in my yard and it looks more like this one:
http://www.aradise.com/photographs-autumn-fall/apple_tree.JPG

But I have a baby walnut tree that looks similar to yours.
You might try googling for some foliage pictures or bring some leaves to your local nursery and ask them if you don't get a more definitive answer here Smiley

I don't think it's a walnut tree, but if it is it has to go ASAP. My youngest is allergic to nuts. I'll take some leaves to the nursery.

I am not the plant person in my family (my hubby is). I try, but usually I kill everything green I touch.
My son planted apple seeds in my backyard garden when we moved into this house a couple years back, my husband thinks this is an apple tree (which would be amazing that it grew! Shocked )

Anyone know? If it's just a weed I'll cut it down and out of the garden, but it looks like a tree to them.

I tried to get several pics, the main stem looks like a tree, but I'm not sure.
Here are pics of it:



Up close of the leaves:




Some of the pics I see on my google searches look like my tree. Should I tie up the tree to a pole for it to grow straight? Right now it's growing out, not up
39  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Whitewash or Painting rocks? on: July 09, 2008 10:51:05 AM
Since we found out we are going to be living in our current home for the next 2 1/2 yrs we have decided to tackle our ugly garden out back.... it used to be a jungle. I used to have pics, but they are on my crashed laptop. So image a wildy weedy overgrown jungle. It's bigger than the whole of my yard. My husband had a "plan" for it to make it look nice. We want to make stairs going up it and line it with all the rocks that were "growing" (seriously, there are more rocks up in there than anything) in the garden.
So we have like 2+ large totes like this of rocks. (this is the HUGE tote box) The dirt is from when my youngest escaped the house and dug up my veggie garden. Angry


And here is the garden, partially cleaned up (this is actually looking GOOD)


He has to do the weed killer up in there, cut down 2 of the overgrown bushes on the left and then dig up the old roots for the bushes that were in there. (we have an allergy issue with them) Then about 2 weeks after that we can do work up in there and we are going to plan a garden, a useful veggie garden at that, roses (since they aren't wind pollinated and won't aggravate our sinuses) and some other stuff that won't irritate us.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO my question is this (sorry it was just long winded) How would I paint all those rocks white to line the path of the steps? Just latex paint and a sealer? Should we use whitewash? Doing whitewash seems like such a p.i.t.a, but if it'll hold better, we'll do it. Otherwise I have white latex paint here and could do that then seal it?

 Undecided

I need help.

Help?
