I have been an old fashioned "Home Ec" teacher for over 32 years and I just came across your blog recently. I have tried three recipes so far and love each and every one. Thank you for all the great photos too. I shared your sit with my students and they are excited to explore it more. So am I.

I was amazed at the difference in my post menopausal weight when I eliminated Coke. I only had one can a day, but I too replaced it with water and mineral water (with a splash of real fruit juice...mmmmm refreshing). I think little steps like that make us feel like we can exert some control and it works wonders. Take a brisk spot of exercise 4 days a week if you can as well. I found the addition of exercise a plus. My 24 year old son tells me I am finding energy I never knew I had. I wish you well in your efforts.

Hi Jocelyn! LONG time.... The pokeweed ink is TO DIE FOR! Of course, your incredible handwriting makes it even more beautiful. Natural dyes make the best colors. Miss you!

Thanks so much for letting me know you read the article. I do hope you will try soldering and if you have any questions along the way please email me. I would be happy to help you out. I think the foamcore is just so much easier to work with than glass. : ) Kind regards, Lisa On Sep 8, 2009, at 9:33 AM, [email protected] wrote:
