hah!  Thanks, I'm in the library.   Tongue

Good job on that; I would not have the courage to put that up in my house.

It's not weird; my hub is a cop and I've pondered this very subject a lot, trying to come up with something he can appreciate. 

Now for probation officer, you could write up a list of probation rules, only it's marriage/bf-gf rules...I'm in a library on a public computer so I can't really give the suggestions I'm thinking, but they are all bedroom appropriate.   Wink
Something to do with keys/handcuff keys and the heart-key to my heart *cheesy, I know*
Police baton of love?  hee hee
There is a code for phone calls, one of the ten codes.  And 10-8 is basically off-shift.  I don't think you'd want to use any others; they're all bad things.
APB for _____ (your partner's name), blonde/blue (or whatever), sexy guy/girl, hot in bed...whatever...   Grin
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: My First Purse, so I decided to make a wallet too! img heavy on: July 04, 2007 10:50:19 PM
no kidding, those are great!  You're doing better than me; I want to make a wallet but I'm unsure of my cutting skills so I just don't.   Roll Eyes  I have that pattern, too.  I love the skull/polka dot contrast. 

I agree with candlemas on the handles, but I think that's per person.  I just don't like those hard plastic and bamboo handles.

I don't know if you did it or if someone suggested it, but I would pad it with a couple layers of batting or fleece.  I drop my electronic things A LOT. 
25  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: I'm sad. on: July 04, 2007 08:10:37 PM
I haven't really noticed any negativity either, though I did notice something on the subversive needlework board that I thought was really sarcastic.  I thought to myself, what a jackass.  I did notice that person only had 1 post under their belt. 

I don't reply either, if something sucks, and I probably won't reply if someone is being an ass.  You don't know where/who that person is or what their deal is or whatever.  They might post that one comment and never come back here. 

On the crochet/knit/sewn handbag boards, people ask for patterns/tutes regularly, some rude, some go on for pages demanding/commanding/begging for a tute.  I told the handbag mod, she: 1. deleted some of those posts, 2. encouraged me to pm those people and nudge them to be nice about stuff.  I did that once and I got one response that basically told me I'm a bad person and she/he was going to report me to the mod.   Huh 

People are going to do what they want to, and some don't want or care about anyone else's opinions and/or advice, even though they come here.

I'm sorry you are upset about stuff, but at the same time I'm so glad there's another person who feels the same way I do.  I really don't have advice because I'm almost at the same place you are in your first post (although I gasped at the thought of giving up crafting... Embarrassed).  *hugs*  So, you're not alone; I completely sympathize with you. 
27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Attention All the Real Ladies Out There! I Need Your Input! Slightly offensive! on: July 04, 2007 07:14:55 PM
Penlowe, you are so right about the southern-belle subject.  My mom in law is southern (and educated, as she puts it) and we have had discussions about how southern women -men, too!- are so good at saying things that would normally be taken as insulting.  They're also good at sweet-talking!  Holy cow, I've seen her sweet talk some people like nothing else.

My favorites:  do it themselves, question authority, aren't afraid to say no, say what they think, think, have an opinion, walk in front

my suggestions:

are classy or have class, are educated
28  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to organize my sewing stuff?? on: July 04, 2007 06:42:52 PM
Also, I tend to keep a lot of empty food containers.  The glass ones are just made for reuse and my house is full of anti-recycling people.  I use salsa jars for lots of stuff, and I have rice in a big pickle jar (a whole 2 lb bag fits in it!).  You can use scrap ribbon/yarn to tie up your tangly bits. 

And, if you are so inclined, sort through your stash to see what you have every now and then.  It might inspire you to make stuff!  I know it works for me. 

I recently reorganized my stuff; I got a ton of fruit boxes from the grocery store.  Most have lids and handles!  Some are small, but perfect for tiny or flat stuff.  Apple boxes are huge and I ended up with styrofoam things with cups in them like egg cartons, for transporting unbruised apples.  I threw them away but I'm sure they could be used for some organizing thing.   

I'm such a freak about organizing.

oh man, good link Violaceous! 

Mine is a little organized, not more due to lack of funds.  But!  Any sort of little container works; if it has drawers it's even better.  I have a box from Hobby Lobby @ 50% off where I keep my little notions and a funky table that opens for my zippers, ribbons, etc.  Fabric, well...that's in 3 *very full* rubbermaids. Cool

Keep like with like; zippers, ribbon/rickrack, needles (check out the needlebooks around here for great ideas on those), and other helpful notions should all be kept separate from each other so you don't have to sort through lots of stuff to find  a little thing.  Also, keep anything that can get tangled corralled.  You'll save so much time if you organize it right off. 

If you're into quilting/using more than one fabric as a display piece in  a project, my mom puts matching/coordinating fabrics in a ziploc bag.  And keep everything dry!  I put my machine in our garage because I couldn't make it work and the bobbin case rusted.  Damn humidity. 
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Pets or weird people doing weird things to your craft.... on: July 04, 2007 03:37:08 PM
I have another one...

I have roommates, quite unfortunately, a bro-in-law and his "fabulous" girlfriend.  She  is a freak about moving my stuff.  No matter what it is, if I leave it out (on a side table or whatever) for more than a day or two it will end up moved somewhere, invariably jumbled or very *not* the way I had it laid out.  GRRRRR!!   Angry
