Frames for my Lenses

I was finally able to see an eye doctor through my husbands employer provided insurance and get contact lenses. Unfortunately they would not pay for both contact lenses and glasses although I might be able to get affordable frames through and then get the lenses cheaper with my insurance through my eye doctor. They do have some very nice lenses at There able to get cheaper frames because they sell what they manufacture and they do manufacture some really cool frames.

Its been so long since I got to do any kind of crafts at all. I am always busy with something and I find it to be very very irritating. Maybe I can get another work at home job soon and then I can do crafts while I am working it. There is a new call center coming into town that also offers work at home opportunities.

BDU Pants

Do you know what BDU pants are. There similar to the cargo pants and there the same camouflage pants with all of the pockets in them that are worn by the military. I have never worn any of these. Maybe when I get skinny and sexy again I will buy some and wear them. They look to be pretty comfortable and practical. You can find them for sale at
Although this is a craft blog I'm going to write about a movie I saw last night. It was Cloverfield. I still do not feel like I got a decent enough look at the monster plus we have no explanation as far as where the stupid thing came from. We never really figured out for sure what happened to the people that were bitten by those weird parasite things. I hated the ending. Then I read that there making a second one with a different name. Sadly the movie was intriguing enough in a frustrating way to make me want to see the second one.

Pressing Flowers

Tis the season for pressing flowers. I have seen kits and red about a dozen different methods but for me the best way is still the way its been done for centuries and that's between the pages of a big thick heavy book. Large bulky flowers are best avoided because they will mold after before they dry out. That is also the cease with flowers or plants that are unusually juicy such as most large or thick leaved Sedums.

There is a flower that I have always thought looks the most beautiful when pressed and fortunately it also blooms vigorously throughout the year and that's plain and simple rock roses. These are in the Sedum family and when pressed flat look like stained glass. The retain there bright beautiful colors and there delicate flowers are almost transparent when pressed, at least enough to let the light through. These are annuals and can be found for less than a dollar for 6 pack at most home improvement stores.
