I've been using Insteads for a while, and feel that I can now "graduate" to a DivaCup, which I just ordered.

If you can manage to get the Instead positioned correctly and get it out without turning your bathroom into a scene right out of CSI, you can definitely manage a DivaCup. Super-easy to use if you know your way around in there. 

And thanks for the salt tip.  I usually use peroxide, but if I have to do any scrubbing, it leaves little white spots all over my fingers. Tongue

I'm not great at sewing (would have to do it by hand since i don't have a machine ;_;)

You don't necessarily need a machine. I make my own by hand using the blanket stitch.  It's sort of the same effect of using a zigzag stitch on a machine.  Instead of putting the right sides together and then turning them right side out, I just layer it how I want it and then blanket stitch it all together with one strand of hand quilting thread.  Like the kind of stitching that's around those little fleece blankets, only tighter. These take a little longer than the machine-stitched ones, but it's something to do while you watch TV or something.

They've outperformed the disposables and held up pretty well through the washer and dryer, so I can honestly tell you that being sewing-machine-less need not stand between you and free pads. OK, I did spend 99 cents at the thrift for a big sheet of waterproof crib pad for the bottom and a couple of bucks for some cute prints from the remnant bin for the top, but I already had the thread and ratty towels Wink

so i bought this dress at a thrift store for 6$ my friend made me buy it, she thought it was the greatest, and well.. i like it an all but i dont really like the color.. this was gonna be my backup if i dont wear my duct tape dress to prom.. is it wearable for prom?

I like it.  But I'm a real-live child of the '80s... shhhhhhh Wink It fits you really well, and even though you don't like the color, it does seem to go with your hair and skin tone. Consider it a blank canvas and have your way with it. But yeah, a different bow is in order, or maybe a flower.

Aww, she's so cute.  I miss babies.

P'sgetti por Bella. My little boy used to have this thing with dumping bowls of food on his head. He liked the feeling of the warm food oozing down his head.  When I saw the white and tomato-y yarn, I pictured the boychild on spaghetti night.

Ooh, pretty.  I personally have never seen a torque made of silverware.  When I saw yours, my first thought was to dangle some celtic themed charms from the tines, because I'm a magpie.
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My first clothing project: light summery babydoll-ish top on: May 20, 2005 02:39:04 PM
That might possibly be the most awesome top ever, and I wish I had the skills to make 1 or 5 for myself. I kinda want to slap your husband on your behalf for ruining what should have been a proud moment.  Been there.  I don't ask my husband's opinion about anything that's important to me, because well, he's rained on my parade one too many times, which has rendered his opinion about a lot of things null and void.

That top would look great over some really good-fitting ultra-lowrise capris or a teeny-tiny jeans skirt. Yummy.

At the time of submition, I had finished only the adult maryjane, and shortly after I finished the baby ones.
I still haven't decided, maybe I'll submit one of them to Crochet Me.

Mmmm, sweet, sweet crocheted maryjane love. I want those.  In every color.  Kiss
