Blog Post Updates

Follow-up on previous blog posts....
I am so happy people are reading this blog. It's been fun to do and I am getting so much feedback. Thanks!
Someone sent me a tip on finding my car in a mall parking lot. Evidently I am not the only one who has difficulty with this. Of course, there is the sage advice to always park in the same place. Okay, we know that can't always happen, but still good advice. Then someone wrote to park next to a landmark, a sign, a tree, or a sculpture, get out of your car and take a photo with your cell phone. Great idea! I've tried it a couple of times and it works!
Secondly, Here are some additional "online deal" websites:

Lastly, I had a lot of feedback on the homemade Christmas gifts. I love all of the ideas people have come up with. Everyone is so creative. We have some budding "Marthas" out there!
I also have received some stories about the homemade Christmas gifts that didn't make the cut. The best one is this....everyone can make these!
"Cushy Slippers" (See Photo)
You need:
18" of ribbon, cut in 1/2 and made into bows
Glue gun
4 Kotex maxi-pads
I can't even write the directions, I am laughing so hard. I can just picture it, for the gift exchange that everyone has to make something and our craft disabled friends came up with this. What do you say, everything from "Eeuuuw" to laughing your head off. Then, guess what, I bet you turn around and regift it! Bad, huh??
