I love it.  I'm in SETx too and if June is any indication of the weather for the rest of the summer...we're in trouble!

4  UNITED STATES / Louisiana / Lake Charles Knit N Needle on: January 26, 2006 07:28:43 PM
I just discovered a darling little yarn shop in Lake Charles called Knit N Needle.  It's on the corner of Hodges and 5th.  They have a knitting group Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:30 and on Saturdays from noon - ?  I am brand new to knitting and they were very helpful.  Check it out if you're in Southwest Lousiana.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Telling hubby/parents about pregnancy on: November 21, 2005 04:49:44 PM
We are also trying and would love to time it with Christmas.  I thought about finding picture frames that reference babies or grandparents and place a stick figure drawing in it.  Not very original but another idea.  I also heard of someone putting the pregnancy test stick in a box (like a bracelet box) and wrapping it up for their husband.  Eww!  I may have to figure out a way to incorporate our puppies because they are our children.  Maybe dress them in Big Brother t-shirts and make a card from the pic!? It's going to be interesting to see what happens once we finally have a little one.   Smiley 

Here's to successfully populating the world with more craftiness!

Gig 'em!

I married an Aggie.  We have many, MANY infant items since we moved from College Station.  And, my OB-GYN is an Aggie!  This may be TMI, but whatever... be warned!

I had a UTI, and we had just moved to Maryland, so I had to find a gyno STAT!  Everywhere I tried wasn't taking new patients, and then this one place fit me into their schedules because I was almost bawling on the phone from the pain.  They told me to get there immediately, and I happened to wear a TAMU shirt, and the nurse almost choked when she saw me because she thought I knew he was an Aggie!

He says he loves to bring new babies the wonders of Aggie football.   Grin

The only reason I stayed with him (I prefer women doctors, just because they know the works from experience) was because of that.  My husband was so proud.   Wink

My babies-to-be are already Aggies!  Let the brainwashing begin!  I should start stocking up on Aggie baby stuff.  I miss College Station and would move back in a heartbeat if hubby would go for it.  And there's not much wonderful about Aggie football these days but I'm no fair-weathered fan!  I guess you really can find Aggies everywhere you go.   Grin

I thought of another idea...if you already know what your parents will be called by your children you could make t-shirts, or something with that name on it to give them.  It's hard if yours is the first, but in my case, they all know we are trying so it could be brought up in conversation what they want to be called. You could even go with the cheesy, "World's Greatest Grandma/Grandpa" if you can't ask.

7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: just found between 1500-2000 3.5" diskettes on: April 01, 2005 01:24:55 PM
I was thinking of making a message board with some I have.  It occured to me when some paper and floppies got mixed up on my desk and the paper got "stuck" in the metal clip of the floppy.  I was also going to stick a magnet on the back of a few and use as message holders for my fridge. 
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Iron-on letters not ironing on on: March 24, 2005 01:55:48 PM
My first attempt with iron-on letters was less than disastrous.  Parts of letters stuck, some didn't stick at all.  Some seemed to melt a little.  The result was very inconsistent.  I used a dry iron (no steam) on the cotton setting per the directions on the package.  Any suggestions for better luck next time?

Where can you buy iron-on transfer pens?  That looks great!!!

I bought mine at http://www.uncommonthread.com/ - no shipping charges.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Crafty Place Card Holders? on: March 23, 2005 11:51:18 AM
For my rehearsal dinner (wedding was sort of garden-themed) I made mini-topiaries.  I took small clay pots painted with a mixture of craft paint and baby powder to give a "globbed on" effect.  I wanted it to look like moss and the baby powder caused the paint to clump in random places.  I then took small styrofoam balls and glued real sheet moss.  A wooden stick was stuck in the ball and glued to the pot.  We packed the pot with shredded paper and topped it off with small river rocks.  Each person's name was printed on cardstock and cut out and propped on the pot.  It was nice that each person could take their's home although I still have a lot left over.  I'll try to find a picture to post since my description is not that great.
