Oh Kuku, I'm so sorry that happened. I'm glad she is on the mend though. What a blessing you are close so you can go be with her. Good sign that she wanted potatoes! Prayers are already working....storm rider

Aww, sorry to hear about your goose and her eggs. :( I used to love my geese. They were so loyal to me. Just like my dogs. When I was in my house, they would sleep right outside the window where I was sitting. If I got up and moved into my kitchen, they moved too. It was really funny. The geese were the one animal sound I could here without hearing aids. It was like having a watch dog outside, 24-7. The only problem was.....they didn't like other people. :( They were fine until a visting teenager decided to kick one of the males. From then on, it was hard to visit my house, unannounced. I had to pen them up when company came. :(

Whatever has been coming in, nab a pet rooster out of my big barn, too. I've been working so much outside the home, that I'm hardly ever here anymore. Guess the wildlife is starting to look at this place like the local diner. :(

Praying! I would recommend she ask to speak to the hospital billing office for guidance of who to talk to at either her insurance company or the hospital to make sure the proper paperwork gets done. I had some medical complications a few years ago and ended up staying a couple days longer than expected. My insurance had a case manager liaison at the hospital that they put me in touch with and it was all taken care of. Most likely once they see she had to have an emergency second surgery, it will be reconsidered for length of stay and coverage. There may also be some liability coverage on the hospital side, because internal bleeding from a nicked blood vessel is not supposed to happen. Many prayers for speedy recovery and financial reassurance. Your sister is very lucky to have you! (((hugs))) Momma, dbfamily

I am so excited! I have graduated from physical therapy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last night was my last visit and my therapist said he was suprised at how much range of motion I got back in my arm after my elbow fracture. I got 100% of extension back and about 98% of flexation back. He said he has only seen that happen a few times in his career, so I'm very thankful. For all of you who prayed for me as I've gone through this, THANK YOU!!!!!

Congratulations, I work at as a Physical Therapy Tech...which means that I would have been the one making you do your exercises! Make sure you keep up on your home exercises, you don't want to stop for about 6 months then your regular activities should keep you good. I've seen too many people come back because they thought they could stop doing all thier home exercises and thier knee started to lose range of motion. You've worked too hard for that to happen. Good work...Keep it up!!!!

I know this is shameless, but, one of my employers is trying to establish a multi-arts center along the Hudson River for disadvantaged youth in Beacon, NY. We are competing for Pepsi's Refresh Everything grant and need 3,000 votes per day for the month of October to get the grant. Would you please vote for us by clicking this link (www.refresheverything.com/millstreetloft) and spreading the word to those you know?

It's on the Restrictions page when adding a box. Under "Member Groups" you can choose Pin-Ups if you are a member of the Pin-Ups group. I still believe it should be noted in the clues.

What should probably be noted in the clues is why it's a pin-up, whether it involves nudity, gore, or is merely suggestive or otherwise possibly inappropriate for small children. I have several pin-up boxes; most involve images of women looking sexy but clothed. Only one involves nudity, and my wife insists that one should not be marked as a pin-up because it is a classic work of art. I have never understood how being done by Rembrandt or Michaelangelo makes nudity somehow acceptable, so I marked it as a pin-up anyway and will let finders decide for themselves whether to share it with their children.

I personally think it's something of an achievement that you can carve a stamp that would be considered objectionable! I suppose it's easy enough to hack something out similar to what you'd find scribbled on a bathroom wall, but if you can carve an image of a woman good enough that people find it erotic, you're doing pretty well. We did find a box once in which the planter noted that there was nudity involved (might have been before the pin-up category existed, I don't remember) and when we found it it was carved poorly enough that we just laughed. It was, like, "What's that supposed to be? Ohhhh...."

I was torn when listing my WOM - do I want only pin-up members to be able to find the box/listing, or do I want more people to be able to assess if they want to pursue it and seek me directly for the clues if curious? I weighed it and did the WOM without restrictions to only the pin-up group. I think the clue makes it clear it is adult only though...

All of which means you made the wrong decision. The entire point of the pin-up category is that there are letterboxers who don't want to know that such boxes exist. If merely making it clear in the clues that it was an adult box was sufficient, we wouldn't have a pin-up category. If there's any chance at all that parents won't want their children to see this box, it should be marked as a pin-up.

I was scared when I did my first carve, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I only have 8 stamps done so far, but I feel a lot more confident. Looking forward to seeing the pic of your first. :)

Rubber stamps are considered crafts, print making is considered fine art. For us, they merge. Perhaps Michael's should have the two departments next to one another.

In hobby lobby they had them with the screen printing stuff and across from the stuff you use to make landscapes and things for train sets and what not. It is always a adventure to figure out where stores are going to put these items. I don't understand why they don't just put them with the stamp stuff.

When was the last time you checked? My Michael's only started carrying the pink stuff about a month and a half ago. Until then they only carried the gray stuff. At my Michael's, it's by the calligraphy.

(At my Hobby Lobby, it's by the stamp and coin collecting stuff).

Thanks! It actually makes sense that they would do it that way with that in mind. I'd like them better close together, stamps and ink and in row three, the canvas's are way in the back of the store. lol

It's probably been 2 months since I've checked because of the distance, but when I did check they carried absolutley no carving material at all. I got everyone involved in the search from the gal stocking shelves to the manager on duty to help me find something, not much caring what color it was at that time. I think I'll call them and see if they are carrying it now, but if I just go...I'm sure I can find something else I need with ACMoore coupon :)

I look on youtube for pop-up card ideas and then fiddle around with making them LTC size.

Geometry Junkie has made some great moveable cards - don't know where she gets her inspiration.

brandicat made a beautiful pop-up dove on vellum card for a Agnes's confirmation swap.
