Oooooh, jessvict I love the yarn that you used for your square. It's totally not a color I would use, but it looks FANTASTIC! I really should stop thinking of myself when I buy yarns Wink

And, I will finally be starting my square tonight. I just mailed out a swap and won't be assigned partners on the next one until tonight or tomorrow, so I have a brief window of opportunity. Hopefully, I'll have a square to post by Monday!

I just started re-reading the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. It's soooo funny! XD I love it. <3's~


Someone recommended these to me a few years ago, but I never picked them up. Then, a couple of gals I worked with were huge fans and had all of the books. I borrowed a stack over vacation and ripped through them. Now, I've got my sister hooked!

PlumCrafty- I love the Utopias Map stamp! It is so clean looking! I might have to try carving on the pink stuff next.

And, MunLtStmpr- Thanks for the carving tips. I really need to use my Exacto more. For some reason, I feel more comfortable using the cutting toolsmaybe because I took a woodcut printmaking class and the tools are similar? Whatever the reason, youve definitely inspired me to practice a bit more with the Exacto. Wink

And, here is my stamp from have to craft! I will be able to use this stamp on a bunch of different projects. And, Ill even be able to use portions of it for some projects and the whole stamp for other projects. Its very versatile! I didn't have a ruler handy, so the ink pad is for scale... Thanks a bunch, have to craft!

Super cute! It reminds me in a small way of those pom-poms with feet and googly eyes that were all the rage when I was in Jr. high...they had a name...but I can't recall it...tough getting old...

But, this is definitely cuter! And, it would be fun to make a bunch and leave them in random places for people to come across...

MunLtSmpr- You continue to slay me with your awesome carving skills. Not only letters, but letters on a small scale. I love them all! Again, I bow to your magnificence! Do you use an Exacto exclusively? Or carving tools, too? You must not drink any coffee... Wink

have2craft- Very cool stamp! How big is it?

Well, mine are packed and ready, come what may...

Hopefully the weather cooperates. Due to snow and ice tonight and tomorrow morning, we could have a 2-hour delay tomorrow, which would mean my day would start at 11:00 and my lunch time is scheduled at 11:05...and then I'll have 1 1/2 classes to teach...tough Friday Wink

But it would give me time to hit the PO in the morning!

Sarcastra- Another awesome stamp!

I stamped mine last night to check for spots I need to fix, and they came out better than I thought (for me anyway). I'm going to clean them up right now and then package them up for shipping. So, off I go!

I plan to send out tomorrow morning on my way to work. Weather could be an issue, however. I do have a Dr.'s appt. in the afternoon (3:45), and should be able to make the PO- the last time I was there they were waaaay backed up. But the PO is open until 6 pm. Could be close, though. If I don't make it, it'll be first thing on Saturday morning, between 9 and 10 am. I'll send PMs if I don't make it on Friday...but then also I'll send PMs if I do!

Well if you want its only like 10 min. away from my house. I can check it out and let you know what they have this weekend Cheesy

Ooooh! And can you get me some zippers while you're there? Wink

Now that would be a dangerous thing for me to live that close...I'm jealous and yet thankful all at the same time. My wallet would be totally empty all of the time. Wink

In my classroom, as a science teacher I didn't really have a bunch of books on hand for the DEAR period, so I spent tons of money buying books. And, since I bought them I wanted to read them first so I've become a bit of a YA fiction addict. Especially series books...I think Sharon Creech is the YA version of Barbara Kingsolver- I get the same feeling of happiness whenever I finish their books! I love the language that is used in many YA books...it really can be beautiful!

And, I'm working through Inkheart which is okay so far...except the author uses and overuses the phrase "as if." Several times on a page. Not an exact quote but close enough: "He hung his head as if hoping that it was all a nightmare that he would soon wake up from." She needs to commit to something- enough with the "as ifs" already. Most of her sentences would work fine without it..."He hung his head, hoping that it was all a nightmare that he would soon wake up from." ** Right? It's driving me crazy...and I almost want to go back to the beginning and count exactly how many times she does it...but at halfway through the book, it isn't worth it. But trust me, it is a lot! Now, because it was translated from German, it could be the translators fault, but I don't think so...

**But I don't think she ended her sentence with a preposition Wink
