P(eace) O(f) M(ind) Swap

To the POM Swappers:  I will be contacting you by e-mail with your partner's name and address shortly.  Nancy, I don't have an e-mail or an address for you --- could you send your address to me at handeyecraftsathotmaildotcom so that I can get you set up?

Here is how the swap will go:
1) I will send each swapper a piece of cardstock.  She is to use that cardstock to make something for her giftee.  Cut it to make a bookmark, fold it to make a card, paste a picture on it, write a quote, whatever you can think of!  But what you make must be
a) about what brings your giftee peace of mind
b) must have a pom-pom on it.  String the pom-pom, glue it on directly, use it in the "artwork" --- again, whatever you can think of!  You can make a pom-pom yourself, or buy a bag of them at Dollar Tree or Michael's or practically any store that sells crafting supplies.

2) Include one other thing in your gift that, again, brings calm to the recipient.  With the holidays bearing down on us, I wish each of us quiet moments to find things that restore our souls.  I have never put a dollar limit on a swap, but I will say that I think this could be done, and done well, for under $10.

3)  If you're moved to include extra items, go ahead.  The mandate is two, but you are free to add if you'd like.

4)  Have your package in the mail no later than Monday, November 28th.

Contact me if you have any questions.  Now, get out there and calm someone down!!


  1. Haven't received the email yet, but my mind is percolating!

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
