So glad this newsanchor is that wise. How can we help? spread the word, just like he did. But spread it all over, not just here on Craftster where you might be preaching to the choir. I am not sure where or how, but I feel strongly about doing this. Thanks for starting this thread. Awesome!

I loooove your idea of having it at a children's hospital. They would love to point to a figure and say "hey, that is made out of a....."  they might also have the actual storage space to pack it away at season's end.

My biggest challenge... I live in a teeny tiny room in a boarding house. I have no where to set up a work space. sometimes I sit on the edge of my bed with a board across my lap, but that is both unreliable and back breaking. so I go out into the common room where the table is too high and the chairs too low. I put 2 pillows on the chair and try to balance there while I work. meanwhile, guys are strolling through and adding their two cents for advice or bumping me. or the table is covered with some sticky gook from someone else and I have to remember to look before I set up to work. \
the lighting in the common room is atrocious. One time I thought I was drawing a brontosaurus and it turned out to be shirley temple because I could not see.

I am at a loss to understand this method of marking. How is a chalk-filled baby sock going to deliver a fine line to follow in the manner that a pencil does? is  there something else inside the sock you forgot to tell us about that delivers the chalk in a specific line? Really like this idea in general, just cannot understand it.

Especially since those of us who had a Wists account were never notified of the shut-down, Wists.com should have created an archive, so that we could retrieve the items we wish to save to possibly post on Pinterest.

Love that archive idea!!  I wonder if all of our 'wants' are out there somewhere floating in the clouds...

Do what you can! Keep those fingers and that brain moving, even if you cannot see particularly well. Crafting is not always about fine results. It is about doing something you love, while it is happening. Like it says, better than therapy. My left thumb was useless for years both before and after the surgeries (and of course during) but I refused to stop crafting. My stuff did not come out very well, but wow, did I need to be doing the crafting every day! I reminded myself not to be self-critical when the piece was weak or askew.

YKYACW your hubby's coworker, with whom he does not even get along (!) sends him home with a big box of interesting bark because "I knew your wife could make something awesome out of it".  sort of along the lines of It Takes A Village. When I have done a completed project with the bark, that 'nasty' coworker will get something uber cool to hang in his cubicle.

Oh my gosh, these are wonderful! Sooo much fun! They are all awesome and the octopus is scary in a wacky sort of way, but my total fave is the bunny fooling with the mountaintop.  Nice job!
