Really, I shortened that title.
So my poor MacBook has had it's share of troubles and each time I take it in the guys at the Genius bar keep telling me what an anomaly it is that it's having the issues that it's having. Thanks to it though, I've become a back up fanatic so I do have all my old files, but I've also had to send it away for a week.
The sort of good (and unfortunately expensive) news is that I've gotten a new computer for my Christmas/every other imaginable gifting holiday of 2009 gift. It's pretty dreamy, but I still don't have any of my files on it yet so I'm figuring it all out and getting Christmas gifts ready. Another convinient thing is that my husband'll just use the older computer for his school work and watching ESPN online.
I don't know how much posting I'll be able to get done in the next 10-ish days since we're still dealing with sucky lingering illnesses, leaving for Iowa on Friday & general Christmas busyness. I do hope that while we're gone I can get some felt food made for my little one's gifts. Who knows.
I bought some really neat fruit and vegetable patterns last month from Umecrafts, and a birthday book that I ordered from YesAsia came recently- Cute Felt Fruit & Vegetables, or kawaii yasai to furu tsu ga itsupai ha to uo mingu raifu shiri zu Heart Warming Life 67530 93.
ISBN 10 digit- 4529046044
ISBN 13 digit- 978-4-529-04604-6
Hopefully this works, but here's the link to an ActionBrowser of the book where you can click through and see 20 pages of it :) Also, a tip, if you order it from YesAsia it's $15.49 and qualifies for free shipping on combined orders of $39 or more as opposed to the $25-35 that I've seen it for on certain auction sites.
Also, for reference for me :) you can go to the Nihon Vogue site scroll down to the Biblo section and click on the images of books with different crafts (I'm pretty sure this is the crochet books section) to see the books in that genre and get the 13 digit ISBN's. The 13 digit ISBN isn't searchable on YesAsia but is on Amazon.co.jp where you can cross reference the book and get both the 13 and 10 digit ISBN's for easier purchasing on YesAsia.
