Found this super cute pattern for a garland using 1mm Styrofoam balls, 2.5 squares, and twine. You cover the balls with the squares using fabric glue. Once that is dry, you just string them on the twine. Went to Michael's this afternoon and picked up the balls, glue and large needle. Won't be able to start playing with them until later in the week. Way to much to do now until Thursday.
    That sounds like a really cute idea. Please post pictures when you are done.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    Your very welcome marybrace. I too worry if they received mine.

    i just reply to my last post and added to it. Oh, and deleted the ( before the quotes. Seems easier than retyping it again and again.

    Sewmany, I don't see my name on your list. I mailed it around the 5th of August. I know I was late but it should have arrived by now. If you don't get it in the next week or so, please let me know.

    Well, I'm going home to Texas TOMORROW!!! I have mixed emotions and feel like there's an elephant standing on my chest. But I do want to see hubby and my two daughters need me. Good news is I can mail birthday candy to the last two of July and our August. Sorry I'm SLOW of all the things I got him to bring when he drove up, when I thought to tell him, "Grab three bags of birthday csndy. Office-left shelf-top-in the white basket!" Alas... they were already on the road!

    Received an envelope from the p.o today. in it was a small piece of paper with my name and address (not my handwriting) and a CPU 86 cent postage paid on March 12, 2013. The envelope and contents were destroyed and not found. The 86 cent postage and the proximity of my birthday makes me feel for certain this was the missing "candy" from this swap.......only took 5 months to send the notification.

    Please inform us when the birthday candies are received....then we can worry only about those that are missing.

    Just wondering...........so do any of you have a pinterest account??? Will I am addicted to pinterest !!!!! and willing to admit it and pretty happy about this fact! It can sometimes be a time suck and hold me captive for hours so I decided to challenge myself in completing 1 pin a day for the next two weeks. ( actually started my two weeks last Friday). I am on vacation from work but have no money to really go somewhere so I have been busy creating and organizing. Call me crazy but I love to organize!

    So far I have completed the following pins (since Friday) 1) made a new dinner in the crockpot( just ok..not going to make it again) 2) made up 8 dinners to freeze (all crockpot) we are eating them while I am on vacation so I don't have to cook 3)planted grass seed where needed, 4)cleaned out my pantry and made labels for all the jars, 5) made a busy bag for my 3 year old grandson Henry 6) chopped and bagged in 1/2 cups onions and celery for the freezer.
    So if you don't know what pinterest is...let me know and I will share

    If you have a pinterest account let me know your account name ....mine is under Barbara Kibler

    going to do another pin....think it will be crayon holder for Henry.

    I will probably have a Pin account next week for my dyeing business. After that, I'll think about one for me. I'll keep you both in mind!

    Marybrace I am with you. I find Facebook to be annoying - too many ads - LinkedIn is valuable for business but not sure what value Pinterest has?

    I love Pinterest. And you're right, it can suck up your time. I have several boards but quilting is my main interest.

    Little bit about pinterest:
    It is a community of people that find ideas and put them on a bulletin board. actually many bulletin boards...no thumb tacks needed.

    I first found pinterest when we were planning my daughters wedding. Are budget was tight so we made all of the decoration and favors from pinterest ideas. My daughter pinned ideas of wedding dresses, pictures she wanted taken at the wedding. I sure you get the idea.

    I have MANY different boards...I find it easier to retrieve the ideas when I'm looking for them. so I don't have recipes ...I have dinners, desserts and canning etc...

    I have a lot of interest in crafts more then quilting so I have quilting, postage stamp quilts ,kid crafts...

    Also there are ideas on how to decorate or how to hang pictures...I have a board called "smart ideas" things I should of thought of be someone else did!

    Also it is NOT a community board that you talk back and forth with someone. Nothing like facebook or linkedin. you can follow people...which means you will see what they post and you can or don't have to post it....it does not matter to anyone.

    And a last note about Pinterest.....it can suck time...plenty of time...so I made a bulletin board called "pins I completed" I repost everything when I do the pin..sometimes I will change something while I am doing it and will give my "helpful" hints.

    Today's pin: Chocolate Chip Cookie Delight.......cookies with cream cheese, whip topping and pudding......looks YUM to me ....where are going to a potluck picnic at church tonight......hope I get some

    I agree Pinterest can really suck your time. Lots of fun stuff to look at, and try. Recipes are interesting too~
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
