1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Wool Felt Valentines on: January 20, 2012 02:03:00 PM
those are super cute! where did you find heart snaps?  i love that they are reusable.

I can't remember where I got the snaps. I wish I knew. 
You do need a snap press to put these kind of snaps on.

I got a great package from SMLounsbury for my son a couple days ago. 
He got an angry birds shirt, a crochet angry bird, and I got 2 spools of cotton thread.

Thank you so much.  We love it.

So get this ladies! I went to the post office today to mail something out (as I am frequently known to do) and I get there...and it's baricaded off with police tape and there are news trucks across the street and a giant dumpster by the front door. What the heck is going on??

Turns out an 89 year old woman drove her car through the building today around noon. Shocked Holy crap!! She drove through the doors, took out the APC (hey, I use that APC all the time!!) through door leading through the back and came to a halt when she hit the back wall. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Welcome to Florida! Goodness gracious. This isn't exactly the first time an old person has run through a building before here either. And yet it's discrimination that people want to change the law to permit yearly tests for competency in driving; us youngsters are just discriminating against the elderly. Roll Eyes Has nothing to do with public safety or anything!! Do you know here in Florida, you can be 89 years old and MAIL IN your renewal for your driver's license and they just send you another one good for EIGHT YEARS? This is why 89 year olds are taking out my post office. Poor, poor post office. Cry

On saturday I drove home and in front of my house is a fire hydrant.  Well, I drove up and a car was on top of the fire hydrant.  I recognized the car as my 90 year old neighbor's car.  She was not there.  Just a car on a fire hydrant.  She called her 75 year old friend who drove up and he was going to figure out how to get it off on his own.  (he didnt want any cops coming).  I ended up calling the police just so the fire department would come and make sure the hydrant was not damaged.  Anyhow, lo and behold my 90 year old neighbor drove right by me today.  I can't believe the police didnt do anything.

I claim scifunk for a set of paperless towels

THis is my first claim, 0,0

Hi, my name is Erin. I am a stay at home grad student mom in the Seattle, WA area. I love to sew and I mainly sew PaperLess Towels or unpaper towels (feel free to add it to your list if you want them and I make them with and without snaps).  I am gluten and dairy free. Please do not send me any food with gluten or dairy in it. I love to cook and bake. I love the outdoors, nature, gardening and crafting. I pretend to knit sometimes and dabble with different crafts. I like nature inspired items. I don't like plastic stuff.
My favorite colors are green, blue, and red. Purple is okay, but please do not send me anything that pink is the central color, or pastels, or gold. I dont like flashy things. I love chartruese, I like dark lime green, eggplant, dark turquoise, any of those colors with brown is great. I love wall art and I love trees and rainbows together (or seperate is fine too)
My favorite scents are blueberry, food scents, lemongrass and pink sugar. I do not like patchoulli, musky scents, sandlewood,
I do not need do dads.

Crafted items:

I just painted my sewing room and I am using these two fabrics to accent it with  Picnic Parade Mingle in yellow and orange diamonds. I would love you forever if you made me something with one or both of those fabrics for my sewing room. wall art or anything you think of.  Doesnt have to be made of the fabric-just match the main fabric print.  I can also send you some of the fabric if you want to make something with it.

Here is what I received from Kayrun.  I sent her yarn and she knit a toddler sweater for my son.  As if that wasnt enough, she spoiled me with some fabric, hair clips, a book for my son, vintage buttons, and a cute cookie cutter.  Thank you so much Karen.  I really love it all.
