I've used CM mostly for 6 years & never had any issues. My cheaper albums from Michael's haven't held up so well So I'm sticking with CM.
Max-I'm just using an acrylic yarn I had picked up for DD for crafts. Once I get the hang of this (it's coming slowly) I'll experiment with some woll or maybe even cotton. I'm not sure. I haven't read anything about which fibers are easier to work with. Once this scarf is done I want to learn to purl & read directions. I'm finding my #9 needles very comfortable. DD has #13 & those are much too big for me.
Oooooo...I'll join. I just started knitting last week. Max- I'm also using knittinghelp. It's how I learned casting on. The actually knitting part came from a friend who showed me. Now I've got the hang of it pretty well. I'm knitting a small scarf for DD. It's my 4th attempt b/c I have also dropped stitches or lost them somehow on the needles & then I can't figure out what to do next. So it's all slow going for me. I'm going to check ot your other...
I actually just tried this, in an attempt, to lower my never lower than $100 electric bill. I washed dishes for 1 mo. No dishwasher AT ALL. I was really hoping for a $40 decrease but it only dropped $20 . It actually really sucks b/c I spent SO much time washing dishes throughout the day that for $20 it so didn't seem worth it. Our dishwasher isn't old but it's not new either. I'm going back to the dishwasher.

I agree w/ YesandNo, it's totally worth it to live here. Oh, and to the OP, I really don't think you could get anything here for $200,000. You might be able to find a 1 bedroom condo for that. Exactly! In my Boston suburb what you just purchased would...
We had the same issue & I just couldn't take it anymore so now DS3 stands on my feet & he now stands to pee. It's been much easier for us. He pushes in his bellybutton slightly & this sort of lifts his penis & he aims for the bowl. I still have to help him a bit but it's SO much better than when he was sitting.
I take pictures of ALL their art projects. Then I print them as wallet sizes & put them in their scrapbooks ( & yest the scrapbooks have many pages of crafts). I've also made magnets with them by laminating them & putting them on the refer. It's just so much easier to have 20 wallet size art projects on my refrigerator than 6 whole sheets of paper. I also have a clothes line on the wall (from IKEA) that has pretty little pins & we can hang up to 20 pictures on that. A...

Check out this book Whistler. I'm going to try my black thumb at gardening this spring using these methods. I really enjoyed this book. Lots of great tips. http://www.amazon.com/Square-Foot-Ga...7325772&sr=8-2

When my parents divorced, they pretty much split us down the middle, Parent Trap style. My dad made all the decisions for me, my mom made all the...
Nope. I stay with my 5 yr. old for all parties.
