Excuse the bugs..


Hi ladies!


(I use 'ladies' because right now, we don't have any male floozies. At least no one who will admit they are men!) ;) I am working out the kinks of the advertisements. At some point Google should send out a 'crawler' (don't ask, I don't know.. sounds creepy though..) to check the blog and use key words to select topic appropriate ads. Until then we have to settle with beer cozies. Sorry! Perhaps someone can do a tutorial on embellishing their hubby's bear cozy with buttons and lace!! I love it!! We can bling the beer thing!! hehehe.. Remember, the ads and the Google Search Bar all rack up pennies for the American Cancer Society. Even with 'beer cozy' ads, we have earned 10 cents so far!! Woohhoooo!! I don't think that's too shabby!

A quick little tutorial for you! the above images are of some button hair elastics that I sold in my Etsy shop a while back. (and they did sell!) Take a set of buttons (old or new) with shanks (the loops on the back) and push a folded hair elastic through. (wrapping the elastic with thread and pulling it with thread helps for tight squeezes) loop the hair tie on itself and pull tight. That's all there is to it! Perfect with child themed buttons for little girls or as 'bracelets' with large elastics for boys or girls! As the elastics wear out, you pull it out and replace.
