Haven't had time to blog lately. . . .unfortunately, not all good - wasted way too much time (well over 6 hours in so-called-appointment time alone on top of 1/2 hour calls) just for a quote from Mesa Garage Doors - and still didn't get one. Must be doing too much business to handle, so I'll have to move on to something else.
Wanted to blog quickly just to sing the praises of Just Rite Stamp Company. I was stamping a birthday card and then started a quick project calendar for my son (to try to help him see how many months there are since he's asking about his birthday a month after it happened) when I noticed that one of my font sets was missing a letter. Luckily, it was the "x" in the smaller size, but I felt that it was my fault a bit. Yes, they didn't pack the letter/s in question, but I've had this set for awhile and even used it a few times, but apparently, didn't need that letter in that size. I asked if I could get 1-2 of them - thinking that it wouldn't cost much. I got a reply very quickly - from the president. Unfortunately, they aren't going to make that font anytime soon, or they would have sent me some. They've now split up the sets so you don't have to buy all sizes in upper case, then all sizes in lower case - both upper and lower case are together in just the size you want. They're also now selling clear "handles" to put the pieces in. Don't know how well that works with the colored rubber stamps, but more power to them! I may or may not buy them since there are some pieces that you trim down and maybe the clear helps, but I hope they sell lots! They're a good company!

Finally online again! - sort of

Been awhile - we've moved back into our house, but are still working on the kitchen. (We have cardboard on the floor for now. . . wouldn't recommend it. It's not too easy to keep clean with an active toddler - hard enough with 2 adults and a dog. The crawling child doesn't do well with it either, but enjoys trying to eat and tear it up every chance he gets!) Still don't have the office set up at all, which means no computer. I had to hijack my husband's laptop to update another blog, so I thought I could quickly post another on this one.
I haven't been able to do anything crafty lately, but did finally get the chance to get my hair cut. I was "able" to cut and donate 17 inches to Locks of Love. (Thanks Mom for this and for babysitting!) This is my 4th time donating, but I can't remember how much the total is. . . not that it's important, just thought it'd be interesting to know. FYI - some salons will either cut your hair for free or for a reduced price if you donate. . . (I found out on Facebook that a few of my friends didn't know this.) Sometimes the salon will mail it in, other times you do, but it's not difficult - directions are on the website, so I'll not bore you with them here. Just want to also say that colored and/or permed hair are accepted now - they didn't take them a few years ago, but that's changed. If you aren't sure what Locks of Love is and have more than 10 inches of hair you could do without, please check out their website at locksoflove.org. It's nice in this economy and with my schedule to help out, even if it is just a small bit.

Question: How personal should blogs like this get?
