You see, usually I am a very up-beat happy go lucky sort of person, but when my 5year old, very dependable, turn off automatically, iron goes on the blink....Not Good!
As I was ironing one evening with this normally good natured iron, it decided to just quit heating up! Now I like a very HOT iron, so... I shook it & surprise, it started to heat up. No problem. Now as I'm ironing along, just as happy as a lark, the stupid S.O.B quit heating up, for like the 15th time! Now that seems harsh, but the dumb thing kept getting cold & I kept shaking, and cussing! And... this went on for at least 15-20 min!!!!
So, I told my husband that I was going to throw a FIT! I know, normally a person about to throw a fit doesn't announce that they are about to do so, but it seemed fitting.
I grabbed the iron, un-plugged it from the electrical outlet, opened the front door & proceeded to "pitch" it to the road!!! Well, when I "pitched" it, the cord wrapped around my leg & it only made it as far as the flower bed! Talk about mad! I then slammed the door shut, stood there, and then opened the door again, picked the iron from the dead flowers & asked my hubby if he could fix it!!! hehehe
He told me that to throw a proper fit, one must "chuck" the item so hard that it will never be "fixable"!!! My reply was, "So, you CAN'T fix it?"
Lesson Learned: Don't throw a FIT!

Have you all searched on Etsy lately for PIF's. I've found some really cool stuff. If your wanting a "for real real" PIF be sure to put a dollar amount in the box. I do 0 to .50. I know, it only costs .20 cents to list an item on Etsy & for it to be a "real real" PIF it should be .20 cents, but.... with shipping, packaging, PayPal etc.. it can truly add up. That's just the way I do it, don't be so harsh, sometimes I don't even put in a $$$ amount. But, you know, then I get to thinking that it's more of "actual item cost" then & is that really a true PIF??? I'm not sure, guess it depends on the individual. What do you guys think?
Well, no camera, no pics, BORING!
HuGs & KiSses to all & to all a GoOdNite!!
I could eat a few dark chocolate kisses right about now!

I have been cutting a quilt into small stockings. I just hate to cut up old quilts. As a quilter who starts lots of quilts, but never seems to finish any, I know how much time, sweat, tears, stitches and blood goes into one, it pains me to take one & cut,cut,cut. The only ones I chop-up have no other uses, I promise! I have a few that really should be cut up & re-purposed, but I keep thinking, I can SAVE them. You know, take the quilt top off the ratty old back, throw away the old and tattered batting. Repair all the holes, by hand of course, and put back together with a new back & warm n' fuzzy middle batting. Come on! I don't have that kind of time, so I'm just packing them away for when I get REALLY old or REALLY bored!
Oh, I also just burnt a whole batch of chocolate chip cookies!!! :o( I'll just have to drink my milk alone.
Try to have a great week, shop away, eat fresh cookies (not burnt ones) and stay healthy!!! XoxO, heidi

Well, that seems a bit harsh, but I have been way to busy to post anything worth while. Just sent my baby off to college, and he took all my $$$! JK, well not really. Anywho, I have not had time to scour all my usual places for my great "finds" or "treasures", whichever you prefer. The last time I was "out & about" I did grab something that I am pretty sure I am keeping to myself, unless I need some "cash 4 college"! Hey, the government needs to start THAT program!!! Or do you count all that Federal Government forms we filled out earlier this year? I am getting totally off the subject here. My fingers can't seem to keep up with the head either! I did find this great 1950's (60's) red half apron that I LOVE!! It is in very good shape & the white thread is still white, sometimes you get items that have bled onto the white's. Hope now I can get back to posting at least ONCE a WEEK!! C U L8TR! XoxO, H

I would like to pass this info on to any artists out there who would like to help
with this endeavor!!
Hi! I am contacting you in the hopes that you can share the following with your team members--please forgive the length of this convo!
I am helping to run an event for THE CREATIVE CENTER-which is a great organization that brings the arts to children and adults who have cancer. You can read more about all the good work they do at www.thecreativecenter.org. They are holding a benefit September 24th in Manhattan which will be attended by several hundred supporters, including some celebrities like Liam Neeson, Vanessa Redgrave, and some well known local artists like William Weegman. Other Hollywood A-Listers are submitting "doodles" which will be auctioned off at the event.
My job is to collect 250 pieces of original postcard art (4 x 6) from emerging artists like yourselves or your team members. These will be given to people who purchase tickets for the event. Each piece will be displayed with the artist's name and info during the course of the event; it is a great way to have your work looked at by a lot of people and also to help others who are not as fortunate.
If you know someone who has been touched by cancer, this is a great way to honor them.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in this gallery please send your artwork by August 31 to:

I am now a member of the EFC Team. EFC stands for EtsyForCharity. It is a group of Etsians who donate items they craft to be sold for charity. Each month The EFC Store picks a charitable organization to give the money to. For the month of April it is Autism Speaks, click on the following link http://www.autismspeaks.org .
Now, I figured that I can always make another pincushion, so.... I donated my yellow vintage tea-cup pincushion for the month of April http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23840383 . I also purchased a jar of handmade cream from EFC Shop to show my support of a great group of people.
If you would like to purchase the tea-cup pincushion just click on the link above or at the left.
Enjoy the SunShine!!! :o)
