Putting it out there...

Does anyone know of anyplace that I might get 2-mm round leather cord (various colors) in bulk amounts for relatively decent prices?

In case anyone's wondering, no I'm not looking to make jewelry, so there's no real fear of competition. I'm looking to maybe start something up, and I need to keep my overhead relatively low. But I need lots of cordage, both leather and not.

Thanks all!!!!

Looking for...

I figured I would put this out there in the hopes that the universe would grab it and send it to me...

I'm looking for a blue goldstone worry stone, palm stone, or just a palm sized smooth carving that I could use (I've seen hearts and whatnot) as a worry stone.

Anyone know of any uber cheap or have one laying around that they don't want anymore?

Princess Bride meme

Okay, I don't usually post these, but I saw it and couldn't resist.

When you see this, post your favorite quote from The Princess Bride (preferably not "As you wish" or the Inigo Montoya speech).

Let's see... my brain is frantically throwing quotes at me (I once won an IRC debate by quoting the entire "to the pain" monologue.)... And just because it's my journal, I'm posting 2. So there!!

"Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while."

"Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha... "

*giggle* Go!

Ebay post!!!!

Just found out that we're going to be needing some money soon. In a bad way. So, I did some cleaning and found some stuff that I meant to eBay and didn't get to before.

Sewing patterns, crafting patterns, and collector's cups all over here! I'll be trying to post more this week!

Thanks for looking, guys!

Nekkid Calvin!!

Please give $1 and repost!!

This is a great cause! I've donated, and ask all of you to as well!

In the words of Stacy, the lovely and talented woman who is making this film:

So as you all know, my lovely cinematographer Alice Brooks and I are making a film in Alaska this winter -- provided we can raise the money! As such, we're trying to fund as much of the film as possible via internet donations.
I've set up a website,, where you can read all about it and make a donation. We're asking for everyone to give one dollar to the cause. There's a paypal button on the website (please consider a few cents extra as paypal takes out a processing fee), or you can send a buck in the mail to my literary agent (address is on the site).

$1 may not seem like much, but if we can spread this across the internet and get 50,000 people to give a buck, we can make a movie!! I believe this is possible, if I can get all my friends to begin spreading the word.

Oh, and we have nonprofit status, so all donations are tax-deductible!

The film is a cinema verite documentary in the style of Allan King's "Warrendale," about the lives of adolescent girls in residential psychiatric facilities. We will be shooting at Providence Hospital in Anchorage. A link to the facility's website is on my own if you'd like to check it out. We'll be teaching the girls to shoot Super 8 film so that their self-portraits will become part of the larger documentary. Both we and Providence feel this can be an important step in healing.

Please don't think that because you can ONLY give a buck you should just skip it.

We really do mean it when we say ONE DOLLAR!! And donations of $100 or more get a hand-knitted hat made by me from my own hand-dyed yarn!

So please please, at the very least just repost this -- as a bulletin, on your myspace, your blog, your email signature, etc.

This is possible if all of you help!

I've been an ebay posting fool!

And will be posting more tonight, but until then, if you know anyone into quilting, sewing, woodworking, or gardening, send 'em on over!:)

It was a lot of work to post those, but like I said, I've got more that will be going up!

And any profits made from these auctions will be going toward Mikasi and my vacation (well, our long weekend to OH to visit an abandoned prison overnight!), so please tell people if you know someone that might like these!

Tonight will be Better Homes and Garden's Wood magazine (nearly 2 decades, but I haven't finished sorting), Coastal Living magazine, and candy/soap molds!

God I've missed doing this:)
