thank you, tHanK yOu, THANK YOU!

I just want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! to all my readers and those who occassionally pop in to check out my blog. I appreciate all who stop by and hope that I provide a little smile, wisdom and interest to their day. I am always excited to read comments, leave one!

I want to give a big hug of THANKS! to the sweet soul who surprised me with a gift certificate for Stampeaz. You absolutely made a sour day more sweet. I could not believe it - how wonderful! Not too many know that I have been procrastinating on purchasing new carving material, and that I desperately need some (I even 'borrowed' a slab from Padawan to get me by, and still owe her). When I received the message from Webfoot, I immediately went and purchased my favorite 'White, Grade A' PZKut. Can't wait to get it, too!

I thank HaShem especially for providing me with a wonderful best friend. How could I live without her? She is always there when I need her, always supportive, always wanting to know how I'm doing and if she can do anything to make things a little easier for me. She is my assistant, my right hand and the other half of my brain. I sometimes feel guilty that I just don't come up to that level of loyalty for her; in those times, I vow to myself to try harder to be there when she needs me. So, thank you, Lisa, for being such a wonderful best friend.

I want to say THANK YOU! to so many for their love and support; my husband, my parents, my sisters, friends who care - both far and near, the leadership of our congregation. Without you, my life would be barren, dull and dry.

Toda! Toda rabah!

Well, now, I'm thoroughly humbled, my dear friend. Please, please don't feel guilty! You have shown me what loyalty really means, you know. I thank HaShem daily for you and the many life lessons you've taught me. Toda rabah, ha khavrah sh'li meod! :o)

In an attempt to edit my original post, the following notice was placed in its stead: “This post has been removed by the author.” Groan. That looks horrible. Somebody make it go away!

My friend, if you ever return to check the comments here again, then let me give you something to read. ;-)

Once I emerge into the daylight each morning, I do many things, not the least of which is head to your blog. It’s as though I have a prescription that reads, “To be taken daily with meals and at bedtime.”

You are the one to be thanked.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
