Thanks for the info.  I always thought that popping corn had a higher moisture content.  I haven't tried to grow corn yet, so I don't have a lot of information about it.

Does corn stay hot longer than flax seed or rice?

I'm not really sure.  I've made the bags with rice before (I live in a city, can't just go and get field corn all the time!).  But I don't have any for myself.

The corn ones hold the heat longer.  I cuddle up with mine so I don't like the lumpiness of corn and all of mine are rice.  I have made some with a corn rice mix.  I gave those to my "Mom"  She uses hers a LOT and all the rice is crumbles.  When I make her new ones I'm going to use just corn.

I had made mine out of flaxseed, worked great. But I did put it in the micro once and for some reason hit 35 minutes instead of 3 minutes and then forgot about it!  It sure stinks when you do that, at least it didn't catch on fire!  Right now we don't have a microwave and I miss having my little foot warmer...

couldn't you put it in the oven? I had one filled with cherrystones and it worked great in the oven.

That's a good idea, I don't know why I didn't think of that.  Probably because I'd probably really forget about it and it would catch on fire, that and I'm used to instant gratification!  I can't believe how dependent we were on the mircrowave, we're kind of used to not having one now, but for a while it was like, how do I heat this up?  Our kitchen is so small in this rental I don't want to use what little counter space we have by putting a microwave on it, so until we get another place..............I'll have to try the oven idea.

Got it! Got it! Got it!
After a few frustrating days trying to get my local postal person to find my package, I managed to get it today! (I live in a town of 400... there's not that many packages!!!!)

So, I got, from fabulous Kim....a lovely box filled with wrapped goodies..... and a cute note. I love that dinosaur and am putting it on my next baby blankie that I have to make! (I am almost done with one, and now have found out that another friend is preggers! Yikes!)

I'm not so good at this picture thing, so bear with me... she sent... an awesome coupon wallet made from a target bag (I am a bit of a crazy coupon lady, and this is perfect!),



two tea towels and napkins which are gorgeous and such a fun print,


great note cards featuring pictures of her sprouting beans,


and last but in my eyes fabulous (!!!) a really amazing bag.


I have to say, I love this bag a LOT and am already getting it full of stuff for a crafty day tomorrow. It has tons of pockets too, and I am a pocket person. I love it, I love it, I love it.

Thank you Kim! Awesome swap!!

PS Sorry about the distracting backgrounds.... my couch is the cleanest place in my apartment right now, and even my couch is kind of chaotic!
