Alright, here's this week's word-inimical. The definition is, "hostile, unfriendly, in opposition".
And I'm beginning to suspect that there are inimical forces at work around here. First off, our server and bloglines weren't communicating, so most of my blogline readers didn't come over to visit. boo hoo. Then, we have a whole bunch of broken stuff at our house.
The one year old printer, so broken.
The ipod now beeps AND shows an icon of an exclamation mark on a closed file.You can't listen to music on it now at all. A broken, expensive toy.
This is the third pair of the hubby's glasses that Keely has broken. The man can't see without them and his new ones aren't ready yet, so he used packaging tape to hold the lens in. nice. Classy, even.
While I was walking around taking photos of all our broken stuff, the sweating hubby said, "You might as well take a picture of the window a/c because it might as well be broken. So, here it is…
It says, "61" degrees on there. HA! Our house thermomstat says, "85" and that is in the same room as this thing. Summer can go now. We are done.
Hope you enjoyed this inimical post. ha ha ha. Oh, we aren't really hostile feeling over all this. It is actually quite amusing. It seems one thing never breaks on its own. Broken stuff comes in groups. Come to think of it, our stove was also broken. The thermostat died, but we already got that fixed. If it's too hot for your oven, then you know you've got problems.
*bloglines situation is now fixed.
** Thanks for your input on the sheeting. Even though I really like the idea of leaving them whole until someone buys a piece, I realized that I can't do it that way because I'd have to sit on the computer, watching, all day to change the status of a sheet if a piece was sold.Otherwise someone might buy 1/4 and another might buy it whole and that wouldn't be good. I don't think my store sight is fancy enough to automate that for me. hmmm. Ya know? O.k. so enough about that now, right? Thanks again.

I haven't done this in awhile, huh?
Here a few links I've seen around the crafty world, if you wanna look and bookmark a few for yourself.
A pretty good mix of helpful links here. Ideas, tutorials, explanations etc.
A little more of a commercial site, some corny projects and some o.k here at Craftbits.
A few, well…maybe just 2 decent projects: here
I'm sure you've seen a lot of these cute fabric cuffs around blogland, but here are the cuff links at Whip Up if you missed it.
And, I don't think was is quick but, one neat reversible tote bag tutorial from craftster.
