Of course my brilliant idea has proved to be full of pitfalls and potential failures, but I think it'll be worth it.

Uh oh, brocades and velvets. That sounds very Victorian!

I had a scandalously brilliant idea on Friday night as I was falling asleep, and of course had totally forgotten it by morning. But suddenly yesterday it popped back into my head while I was actually awake, and now I can go ahead with it.

Oh Maman, that's a terrific idea! I was just thinking about Crafting Coven the other day and how we have to get it going again. (And I have to start contributing to it!)

Because we can work out in advance what letter-prompt will fall in which week, people can start preparing their postings in advance. (And you can actually post in advance too, and just set it to publish on the specified day.)

Now, "exaggeration for the sake of fun" -- that sounds like a vice to me! Grin

Awww, Winkleheimer! What a sweetie! (Love the name, though now I'm going to have that song in my head!) From what I've observed in years of backyard feeding, squirrels' intelligence and ability to learn varies a lot, but some are certainly very good at learning from observation, as Miss WS did.

I noticed from the video that she seems to lose interest in painting quite quickly. But in the wild they can keep doing the same fiddly thing, like peeling a pinecone, for quite a long time. Have you found that her attention span for painting is increasing as she gets used to it?

That's really nice, and I like your colour choice. I agree that most of those sorts of things are too cute and "scrapbooky".

For some reason your second photo is missing, though.

Here in Ontario the only retailer of imported beer is the government Liquor Control Board. And a few years ago they abruptly stopped selling Wychwood's Black Witch, one of my all-time favourite beers. Admittedly, they probably did my liver a favour by turning off that free-flowing tap, but I still resent it.

This diversion into beer-talk has me thinking about what exactly is a vice, as opposed to just a bad habit or socially-disapproved behavior? I think a vice has to be something that gives you pleasure even though it's bad for you or socially abhorrent. So smoking, gambling or watching "Dog the Bounty Hunter" are vices, while procrastinating or driving badly aren't.

How do you all think about this? Does a behaviour need to be pleasurable to be a vice?

1868  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Warm Wishes for Yule 32 Gallery on: January 06, 2012 03:34:16 PM
1 cup ground cinnamon
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup craft glue

That's a recipe that looks quite startling out of context! The applesauce is a brilliant touch - it'd add fibre, sugar and apple scent all in one.

I have GOT to get going on my projects tonight. The problem is that we're re-arranging our basement, and a lot of stuff is camping out in my already tiny craft area while its shelving is being moved. But I'm going to have to just clear a path and start working anyway.

Usually if you send extra on a OTT you get negative feedback.
But I won't do that here!
Good thing - Monnie could never recover from that much negative feedback Wink

Dewshines, the Imbolc send-out is January 27, so we won't have sign-ups for Ostara until at least the third week of February. I have to check the dates to see just when it should be. But your Stuff An Envelope swap should be over by then. (How could I have missed this one - I love the envelope swaps!) If you have an international partner, though, you might want to send extra early to make sure it doesn't get badly delayed.

And Mrs. Shak, be sure to join the Fake Swap Craftalong with your Imbolc self-swap.
