I have received many wonderful answers to my blogging questions, and I've had the chance to visit more blogs as a result. I visited Sewing in the Wendy City, and saw that she has an Etsy shop - and I can't resist an Etsy shop. She had these cutie little can "coozies," foam drink can insulators decorated with fabric and ribbons and ric-rac, and she even said that they were perfect for Dr Pepper! How could I resist? I bought one, and that sweet thing sent me two:
One of them is exclusively for my canned drinks, but the other has been re-purposed:
Cute, huh? Thanks, Wendy!
On another note, I have sent another article into Mark Lipinski at Quilter's Home. It has now been about a month since I sent 3 pieces to the managing editor, Jake Finch, after she requested more to replace the one they couldn't publish. I decided to send this piece directly to him - and just casually mention that I sent Jake 3 pieces 4 WEEKS AGO. I'm hoping he loves what I sent (who could resist an article called Zen and the Art of Crappy Quilting?) and gives his managing editor a poke about the others. This piece even made my husband laugh, and that's saying something.
