i imagine other couples having sex:  i do that, too.  gets kinda gross sometimes, eh?

I dont care that much about the environment.

Keep your hands off me!  My biggest regret is that I let you abuse me at work.  I should have told someone, but I didnt.  I should have been that girl but I wasnt.  I will never let anyone abuse me like that again.  Thanks for the lesson.

I masturbate at least 4 times a day.  Holy cow!  How dyou make the time?

Its a construction notice, and it says Even though they wake me up I cant be mad at the people that sent out such cuteness.

I think Id be happier single.   I have most definitely felt that  and if you think that, youre probably right.

Anxiety attacks are painful Trying to hide them in public is even worse.

On Friday we are putting our family dog to sleep.  I am beside myself and feel ridiculous being so upset over a dog.  But she is more than a dog, she is family and the last existing symbol of the happiness we had before my parents divorce.

Oh, honey.  Im so sorry about this  my thoughts are with you. 

These boots were made for walkin and thats just what theyll do, once of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you. Is around the border and then I started hitting him back is in the center.

I tell people I dont blame myself.  I do. Is on the front, and then on the back My friend killed himself a year ago.  I still feel like I could have done more to stop it.

I know its hard, but try not to blame yourself.  It wasnt your fault.  *hugs*

People freak me out.  And on the back They always have I avoid people I dont know if I can   I have a feeling it was meant to say more, but thats where it ends.

More to come in a few, when they're uploaded...

15  Valentines Gifts for FH: Jammies, Slippers, and Chocolate [IMG PHAT] in Valentine's Day by ruby_soho on: February 13, 2008 10:37:58 PM
Here are the projects I slaved over for the past week or so (valentines day kinda snuck up on me this year  Wink):

first, a pair of pajama pants, since my fiance's last pair got ruined.  i used some boring pajama pattern that i had a devil of a time with (but it's my first FO from a pattern!  woo!) and some clearance fabric from joann's.

next, a pair of Aunt Maggie's Slippers, the pattern for which i found on ravelry.  my first knitting FO was a pair of slippers for my fiance, and they've long since fallen apart, so i thought he deserved some new ones Smiley  they're kinda funky looking, with the ribbing in the toes, but i think they'll work. 

then, some chocolate bars using the templates that ljc posted someplace in this section...

and the piece de resistance: the card.  i modeled it after some of the other "things that go together" projects around, and added some others... 

a close up:

and with the envelope:

here's the wrapped goodie box:

we won't be exchanging gifts til friday...  do you think he'll like his package?

eee!  i got my first one today, too! 

it says, "a man in north africa offered to buy me for 250 camels.  what would my dad have done if 250 camels were delivered to his door?"  and on the back, "hewas a spice dealer in the market.  he gave me a stick of fresh cinnamon.  i told him to save his camels  Tongue"

While organizing my sewing box, I found a ziploc baggie full of sewing needles and another full of pins.  so i figured i needed something more permanent and safe to hold those things.  behold, my matching sewing needle case and pincushion!

the pincushion was made with this tutorial...

the needle case was made with this one...

and here it is open!

20  Invitation Opinions in Weddings and Bridal Showers by ruby_soho on: January 09, 2008 09:21:37 PM
Hi, guys!

I'm working on our invites and need a bit of assistance.  Our colors are red, white, black, and silver.  Our invites are red, 6"x6" square, and open up like a book.  The inner bit with the invitation is white with this graphic on the bottom:

...argh.  okay, well i can't get it to work.  in any case, it's a bunch of silhouettes of daisies in different shades of silverish, grey, and black. 

anyway:  i need help with ribbons.  the first is a thicker silver ribbon on bottom, with thinner black ribbon on top.  in the middle is the tag, white on black, with the invitee's name.

the second is a thicker black ribbon with a thinner silver ribbon on top.  it has the same tag.

which do you prefer?  (obviously on "real" invites it'll all be centered and pretty, but just imagine for now Smiley)
