I was devastated when they decided to stop cranking these out.
Bring back Underoos...and make them adult sizes. :)

Tutorial: Create and Sew a Wacom Tablet Protector Sleeve

I'm becoming slightly addicted to creating tutorials for
"If I could save time in a bottle..." I'd never sleep, but my Instructables library would be most impressive. :)

I'm a sucker for a contest, but I really enjoy the creativity and encouragement from the community that
thrives on the site.

I'm wordy, and I try to make a tut that clearly explains how one can recreate the item I've made. It takes me quite a length of time to put an Instructable together. My latest involved a lot of sewing and detailing the instructions was a challenge for me.

I highly recommend you think about posting your tuts to Instructables. The interface is user friendly and so is the community.Give me a shout if you are on Instructables.

This is my entry for the Holiday Gifts Contest. Give a vote if you like. :)

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things...

Feeling a little nostalgic about things I loved as a child as well as times past.

I've fallen in love with the "On the Road with Charles Kuralt" series. I can vaguely remember this series being on the air. If I strain, I can see my father sitting on the couch watching them.

I'm on the second DVD set as we speak. Time really has stood still in this set. You'll find yourself quickly transported back in time as you travel alongside Kuralt and meet average Americans who go out of their way to be anything but average, discover amazing places to visit you'd just as soon pass by, and bear witness to some of the greatest stories that would have otherwise gone untold. I love this series. I miss the clarity of life that shines so brightly in these taped segments. Check and see if your local library has them in stock!

Holiday Movies - Sure, I've got my vintage favorites, but I also love Olive the Other Reindeer. The sweet dog who yearns to make a difference. :)

Finally, there are some super sweet things at Bonanza that take me back and make me smile. Strawberry Shortcake and Wonder Woman....

Happy Holidays!

Wings and Fences Mummy Costume and Makeup Tutorial on Instructables

Mummy Makeup and Costume Tutorial - More DIY How To Projects

The Halloween contest over at Instructables was just to good to ignore, so I've been busy putting together this tutorial on how you can transform yourself into a mummy. I love that this costume costs more in time than it does in money, so hopefully a lot of people will find some use for it.  :) Hopefully it will be a winner at Instructables too. Either way, enjoy and I'd love to see any photos you take should you use the tutorial.

Do you have an awesome tutorial on Instructables? Share the link love!

Funny Classified Ad

This silly post made me laugh out loud, hope it makes you smile too. I love the fact that the owner of the chair not only went to great lengths to provide full disclosure about the haunted issues with the chair, but provided a sketch as well. lol :)

We get a lot of funny local classified ads, I'll fold them in as posts in the future.

"I'm kicking this haunted office chair to the curb. I hate it because there is a scary ghost that lives inside. Sometimes it spins around by itself and when I sit on it, it starts shrieking and it just never. Stops. Shrieking. So come get it. It is free. Don't email me asking if it is really haunted; I assure you, it is."

Descriptors: Black and Haunted

Thank you anonymous classified ad poster. You made me smile.
