Home-Made Christmas

I’ve been busy as a bee making things for christmas.  I’d like some opinions of people who read my site about the stuff I’m making.  I have a pretty good idea what I’m making for my nieces – mostly little purses and journals with cute covers.  I used an idea I found in the book Fabric Leftovers and I’m loving the results! I’m also considering “Dammit Dolls” for the older kids and maybe my brothers! 

However, I have no idea if I should make something for the nephews or just get them a cool book.  Any crafty ideas for 15 and 11 year old boys would be great!  So far, here’s what I’ve got:

Today I Sent a an Email…

To Rush Limbaugh.

How many people know he lost his hearing back in 2001 due to Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease? It can cause hearing loss as a result of the hair nerves in the cochlea dying. His loss was fairly sudden. Mine wasn’t. My hearing loss spanned over 20 years…a long and painful process. I asked him a few questions about it and other things, but I’m going to withhold exactly what I asked until I hear back from him, which, realistically, may be never.

But I have made a vow. I will not do a full and complete commentary on him until I have given him a chance to respond and rebut…I gave the man my word, even if he never reads it.

I should be ready to post about him in a couple weeks.

Winter Has Arrived…

Here in Andersonville the streets are snow-filled and the sidewalks are getting bumpy with ice. Right this very minute, the temperature is a whopping 9′! We had our first snowfall the other day and I ran outside to take pictures. Back in Texas, this miniscule 2-inch snowfall would be enough to call for a full snow day…no one would be going in to school or work, unless they wanted to get a quick lesson in car-skating.
