geez...i think your sweater looks awesome and it looks great on you too!  it looks like something out of a 'zine...maybe you should just step back from it for awhile before you decide to do your reconstructions...sometimes when you finish something you've been working on for awhile you get sick of it no matter how nice it is =)

So, after much paper and ink waste I was able to finish my bf's book on time for Christmas! yay!  He loved it. Thank you all for your help =).
If you would like to read an online copy check out: cancersticksandlottotickets.blogspot.com

Here are some pics of the finished copy:

If the pages look crooked it's because the last signature is a bit wonky. I made the spine a tad too wide and it pulled the last section causing it to be messed.

it's been a while since anyone has posted in this topic, but I just came across it and had to make sure Miramichi was represented! I am from the 'chi though I have been living in Fredericton for the last number of years.  Yay for NBers! =)

I'm trying to figure the same sort of thing out myself.  I want to bind a copy of my bf's writing for him for Christmas.  I want to use 81/2 by 11" paper folded in half so I can bind it using a coptic stitch.  I was planning on printing it using 2 columns and in landscape format.  I will have to re-feed the paper to the printer in order to use both sides but can't seem to figure out how to keep the writings in a 2 column format even if I want only one column on a page... I just had an idea and thought it might work for you. Perhaps you could just use text boxes, sized-accordingly and place them wherever you want them on the page.  Let me know if you come up with anything else...

Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with making a book using Microsoft Word?  I want to compile some of my boyfriend's writing for him for Christmas.  I am planning on using regular sized paper (8 1/2 X 11") and folding it in two, as I would like to bind it together afterwards using a coptic stitch method.  I was thinking I could use the landscape format for printing but am having a couple of problems.  I would like to use both sides of the paper to make it look 'professional'.  I will have to re-feed the paper after printing, but is there anyway that I can use a 2-column setting and only print one column, from right or left, on my paper?   Thanks and I hope this wasn't too confusing...

A favorite story that always gets passed along in our family is Robert Munsch's I Love You Forever.  It's sooo cute!

This is my new fav salad, I got the recipe out of one of my mom's cooking mags:

In skillet, toast c coarsely chopped peanuts over medium heat until fragrant and dark golden, about 8 minutes.  Set aside.  Peel, pit and thinly slice 2 mangoes lengthwise.  Seed, core and thinly slice 1 sweet red pepper. Set aside.  Dressing: in large bowl, whisk together 1/4 c vegetable oil, 1 t grated lime rind and 2 T lime juice, 1 T fish sauce, 2 t sugar, 1 t hot pepper (or t hot pepper sauce), t each salt and pepper.  Add mangoes, red pepper, 2 coarsely grated carrots, 4 c mixed greens, c green onions chopped and 2 T coarsely chopped fresh mint; toss to coat.  Serve sprinkled with peanuts.  Makes 6 servings.

I gained a bunch of weight at once and ended up with some stretch marks on my boobs Wink which were really awful.  I heard that vitamin E was good for scars and stuff so I got me some to try of the capsule variety.  you just break 'em open and apply the goo where necessary i think like 2 or 3 times a day.  and they are really gooey and gross -- its like rubbing molasses or something on you but it really did work! so i would give that a try before you opt for plastic surgery/laser removal.

kitchen things...mixing bowls, the ol' toaster cliche, serving plates/bowls, cookbooks...everyone can use kitchen things especially if its thier first time out on thier own...just find out what they have a head of time and if they are registered any where that would help.
