I love the idea
I'd make mine a bracelet. What if we all just picked beads (with some sort of vague size guideline maybe) and then focus love on them
and then mail them off to the other people on the list? I'd think that would be easier than sending them to one person and having them send out to everyone else but maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, however it's done, put my name on the list please

Well, a Scott Noelle thing that stuck with me - instead of asking "what's wrong" or anything like that, try just a non verbal response. Kid is crying and you just hold out your arms for a hug. Comfort them with loving arms and then, when/if they are ready, they will tell you. I like this and try to do it. Now, if the kid is screaming or there's obviously something that needs "fixing" (like they sound like they are in pain or scared of something) that's different, but I find this works really well for just sadness and unhappiness. Noelle's point was that instead of focusing on the "what" we should focus on the child and the feeling. "What happened" isn't important. The child's feelings are what's important no matter "what happened". Scott Noelle rocks

Yeah, there were many things I didn't connect with on Flylady but some of her stuff is spot on. And now I'm pretty sure she's got the LOA thing going, even if she doesn't use the term
So . . . We were talking about selling things on etsy. I mentioned to dh that it seems that etsy is good for selling little things but I thought it would be better to spend his time making big, expensive things (and I can use etsy for my creative outlets
). That way he could sell one or two items a month and it would be better than selling a dozen tiny things. He said this probably wasn't really possible. Then we went to the in-laws and SIL mentioned that the woman Robert used to deal with at the horse tack store is still working there and that you can give things to the store to sell on consignment.
So we came home and we're talking and he says he probably isn't able to sell them the tack trunks he used to sell to them (for $400 each - they sold them for more) because he just doesn't have the time to work on a set contract right now. I told him what about if he made just one or two a month when he has the time and he's saying no, you can't do that because he probably can't sell them on consignment because they make their own tack trunks to sell.
Ok, here comes the point of my telling this story
I told him, ask the question and let your mind get working on it. "How can I sell a few expensive things a month?" and wait for the answer to come to you and maybe it's that you can do a craft show or maybe it will be that you'll talk to her and she'll say "sure, you can consign tack trunks as long as they aren't the same as ours" and maybe she'll say "hey, remember that big thing I wanted you to make me 10 years ago? I still want it, can you make it?". And at that point he started to smirk because Shannon is getting all woo woo, but then he stopped smirking and I could see him thinking about it!
So maybe nothing will come from this but I think it will. No, I know it will
Hey, already what's come of this is that my dh is rolling his eyes less when I talk
(he's a lovely man but he's mostly "humoring" me with all this
