I am hoping to send by friday. This is such fun!

A little soapy tip too is if you use foam soap dispensers it makes your liquid soap last tons longer! I do a 3 tablespoon liquid soap to 3/4 c water recipe for a small Dial soap dispenser. I bought a big refill and it took me THREE YEARS to use the whole 1 qrt jug! I bet body wash would work in there too. Sometimes in the kitchen I use dishsoap in that dispenser.

Tips for unused Bath and Body lotion? THats what I have a ton of.

I have finished 2 smalls, a medium/small and a 90 %  done a medium/large. (I cant decide how big they are  Smiley and have no idea how long they took as I am constantly interupted Grin). I am hoping to send tomorrow.

I just woke up to a spider as big in my hand in my hallway. I hate spiders. I am still shaking.

Gross!!  I can't tell you how glad I am that I live somewhere cold where our spiders don't get bigger than 3/4 of an inch of so.

If my stomach will settle and my headache will go away, I'll work a bit on my package today..otherwise, I'm taking a nap or watching some more Planet Earth (I'm so addicted right now!).

I just sent off to pixieval (as well as one personal swap, three OWS claims, 5 books sold on half.com, 2 books requested on paperbackswap and 1 DVD requested on SwapaDVD). The post office lady looked a little scared when I walked in!

I have one personal swap to finish up and then it is back to some of my personal projects. And cleaning and organizing my sewing space. I get so much more done and spend so much less money when everything is my sewing area is organized and I can find it!

I think I'm going to find a little time on my days off to organize my area, too!  First is getting the pantry back in order... I like to keep it organized, but right now everything has just been stuck in there and it's driving me crazy!!  Maybe I can pull off everything that I've got planned!   Cheesy

So ... I just sent off my first paperbackswap.com books ... only one TEENSY problem.  I sent them to the same person, thinking that the person requested both.  Only ... not so much.  Bah.  I feel badly about the person who requested the second book.  Oh well, mistakes happen, right?  Just kicking myself because I don't get two books' worth of credit because of my stupidity. 

Alas.

Still working on the medium for Craftrica.

Oh - and the 'who's sent/received' list is up in the gallery - just seems that's the most logical place for it!

Did you not just do the "print wrapper" option? You can print without any postage on it, and just the address. Usually if someone orders two books the system shows them that way (like they will be in the same boxed in area on your requests). Bummer that it happened. Better luck next time!

Oh I did print the wrapper - I just printed two of the same wrapper.  But it's good to know the system puts them in the same bubble.  Some days I swear my head isn't attached!

I PMed the person who's receiving both and she's offered to send the other back, which is SO nice of her.

Well, I finally got around to making no-knead bread and I have lentil soup on the go.  Hubby will be  Grin when he gets home, smelling the soup. Smiley  I've just had one heel off of the loaf of bread and am really tempted to eat the other...lots of butter..mmmm.  This pregnancy keeps me hungry ALL the time!  The only complaint I have about cooking so much at home is all the dishes we keep making!

Oh, by the way, if anyone wants a good no-knead brown bread recipe, I have it!  I tweaked and tweaked until I got it down to a really good recipe - and easy!  I do fiddle with it a bit so it isn't entirely no-knead, but I don't work on it for more than a few minutes.  I find that the secret is bread flour and vital wheat gluten.  Smiley
