Have you checked out Listia? I joined it over a year ago... and already am quite happy with this site.. they way it works is you get points from putting items up for sale, watching videos, answering ads, and other things.. even connecting with Facebook and Twitter gives you points.. you use those points for items you want.. you can get simple things.. or even brand new items on here for points... even cards from Amazon, Ebay, stores, etc..

I use it for items for my sales.. things like address labels, mailing envelopes (I love those vinyl poly mailers), towels, buttons, ribbon, and also have been known to get Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and I filled my grandkids Easter baskets this year with tons of items from Listia..

You can get handmade items too (I often put small items up).. and even things like cameras, cellphones, and even small appliances.. so go and check it out using my link.. you will get points for free to start with.. and I also get points if you join under my link.. thanks..

Hanging Towels for sale..

I havent put these up on Etsy yet.. Just wanted you to see them.. this one is a Fall Owl.. topped with off white yarn and edged with variegated yarn matching the colors in the towel.. the button is a resin button with an brown owl on the front.

I also put up two Halloween towels.. the first one has various Halloween Trick or Treat.. topped with white yarn and edged in orange with an orange button.. the other one says A Witch and Her Little Monsters Live Here.. it is topped with purple and edged with a darker orange with a orange button.. the picture is rather dark.. I probably will need to redo it later.. for some reason purple comes out almost black with my camera.

I just started reading this book.. and already am having a hard time putting it down.. a good description to this book can be found on Goodreads..

When I went to add this book I discovered that Michael Crichton died back in 2008 from Lymphoma.. dont know how I missed that.. really sad as he is one of my favorite authors..

Just finished reading An Echo In The Bone..

A writeup of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon... This book is book 7 of the series..

This series is one of the best I have ever read.. and am reading. only problem is the books are soooo big.. lol.. so it is taking me a long time to finish one. I have been getting the series from the Library.. unfortunately they dont have book 7.5.. so I guess I am forced to go and buy it.. will be on my list of items to buy next month.. They do have book 8.. Written in My Own Heart's Blood, so I wont have to buy that one.. 

I have put the link in so you can check out the series yourself.. It is also a TV series on Starz.. so if you get that.. you can watch that there too..

Such A Sad Day.. Remembering 9/11

If you are like everyone in the US today.. you are remembering where you were when the planes crashed into the towers.. Back then, I worked in a Vet Hospital as a LVT.. and it was a typical day of getting ready for appointments and surgery.. our surgeries showed up.. but after that.. no one showed up for appointments.. no one called to cancel either.. we all were rather confused.. until we got the message of what what happened.  One of the other Vets came in with a small TV and we watched in horror just like everyone else.. needless to say we cancelled the rest of the appointments and the next day.. I remember sitting there watching and watching that same horrible moment over and over.. eventually you just had to stop watching as it just was too horrible to watch..

Today on the news they were discussing the children who died in 9/11.. one of them.. a small two year old girl, who's name was Christine Hanson of MA.. she was the youngest to die there.. on a plane (Flight 175).. It brings back the horror again.. as that is really close to my daughter's name.. R.I.P. Christine and the rest of the people who died there..

Picture came from from Dennis_Germany.
