So are they cloth food containers? Like a wetbag for sandwiches? That's really quite clever, although I agree it's hardly CD category material. What a thinkin' Mama...

I still think most mama's will not be disapointed & I think 5.00 is a good price, just like cd's up front it cost more but its something you will use over & over again!
I think Noreen is great she has made some great clothes for my son. And at a time when we were all so devastated by Levi's diagnosis, she came up with this GREAT idea to raise $$! And for $5. ea we all felt like we were helping out..& curiosity kills the cat..lol I think she sold 80 right off the bat & all the $ when to Levi!!
(**By the way a post from April today...
"Levi is CANCER FREE!"**)

I also think its a bummer that someone is Ebaying it & making a profit off of the mystery of the thing..& making it seem like a cd item

oh..there is a HUGE list of other uses for it on her Yahoo group, some neat ideas..we have all really had fun with it..so dont be disapointed! I am sure you could re-sell it if need be as there are people on AOL boards STILL wanting more! LOL
to keep on CD topic, You can carry your wipes in it!

For all of you who got a VERY odd PM from me last night in response to the "thing" I am soooooo sorry. I got so many PMs that I had started cut and pasting the response and forgot that I had posted somewhere in the middle of dealing with the PMs. So I am not sure how many of you got my "humane service" PM but I am sorry! : yes, it is terribly funny. I am cracking up thinking of all the mommas who were like "has this lady lost it?" :LOL
If I sent you the wrong answer, please rePM me. :LOL

Ummmm, that would be me. :LOL I was thinking you were trying to say that the "thing" was a rubber snake or something. I read my PMs before I checked the board, and was rather baffled :

ohhh... so exciting. Whoever wins please tell us what it is! I was wondering if it is a hyena dipe but then wouldn't she say "hyena surprise" or something in the description??? I'm very curious...

Maybe I should write and ask if the "thing" would fit a newborn- maybe that way I'd get a hint??? Hummmm...

ok, looks like I missed a lot! (I just read the first couple posts before I posted) Ignore my last post I'm going to go read the posts to see if I can find out what the "thing" was.

If anyone knows who the high bidder is, tell her to quit bidding. The last high bidder was the WAHM that makes the Thing. She was tired of seeing people get scammed by Dorothy on this auction. Someone else I know emailed the seller and asked if it was diaper related, and the seller was flat out lied about it. :

I really feel bad for the mama who makes the Thing.And from what I have heard that ebay seller is a real nut job so no suprise that she is scamming people.Maybe we could report the auction to ebay?

It's all over now (hopefully, lol). Noreen (the Thing WAHM) won the auction. So no one will be scammed out of their money by the Ebay seller.

It was a PUL sandwhich bag. for the love of everything holy this has got to end. It is a very nice, perfectly useful thing but The shipping was outrageous and auction now seems a bit hokey. if you want a thing just e-mail the lady who makes them and buy yourself one for a reasonable price and a reasoble amnount of shipping. skip the hype. I believe the procedes were origiannly going to help a family with a very sick baby and now it has turned intot htis weirdness.

I feel realy bad or the thing lady.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I would actually love to buy some of these at a reasonable price. I didn't see anywhere who the maker is?

Just had to resurrect this. I just sat through all 7 pages and am still cracking up! :LOL

At least in the end I found out what a "thing" was (I didn't think you ladies would ever fess up! ) And the thing is she's still selling "things" I think I may like a "thing"

Carry on!
