What Is Your Favorite TV Show?

One of my favorites TV shows is Closet Cases. It’s a TV show where style-challenged people are taken on a shopping spree for new clothes. Then a design expert transforms that cluttered closet into a hard-working space. If you like to watch it, you can watch it online on Spreety TV Online : Watch TV Shows Online Free. In fact, you can find any TV show on spreety. The site is 5,000 pages deep, and has many genre pages (i.e. home & garden, comedy, sports, westerns, etc.), classic TV pages (1950s, 1960s), pages about movies, most popular online TV, etc. Check it out yourself!

Travel Companies Publishing Their Events on Facebook

I notice that currently at lot of travel companies are trying to promote their charity causes or their other events using social media and social networking sites. For example: Laterooms ,, expedia, eight hotels. While we are on this subject, let me tell you about the world's leading accommodation meta-search engine in terms of inventory and prices called hotel combine. They index the most hotels out of any other hotel price comparison website, and you can find the best price listed across more than 30 major websites in just one click of the button. By using them, you don't need to visit different websites one by one to compare rates.

My Own Yarn Shop

I always dream to open my own yarn shop someday. I like the idea to be able to fondle yarns all day long and helping customer to find the correct yarn for their project. I am sure a lot of you have the same dream as mine.

However, I realized that starting my own business is a big step and I will need to spend a lot of time researching and planning before go ahead. Running your own business is a rewarding but demanding career and life choice. There are many different opinions about how to start a business from writing and researching a detailed business plan to jumping into a passion and trying to make money out of it.

Having the right leads, in any successful campaign, is the most important aspect but also the most difficult to obtain. Relying on a company without being sure of their own success is a big risk. At Endless Resources, they try to be as transparent as possible to ensure that you are fully informed and know exactly what to expect. This includes knowing when you are dealing or about to deal with risky or model consumer scores. Their Consumer Mailing List will help you target those consumers that bring you more business.

Thinking to Buy Rolex?

Although shopping online can be very easy and convenient, but it has some risks too. One of the risks is that sometimes you don’t get the genuine stuff. For inexpensive items, probably you just close your eyes and you said to yourself that you won’t buy it from that company again. However, if the thing that you are about to buy was very expensive like Rolex watch, you should make sure that you buy from respectable company.

Best of Time ( is proud members of BBB, Better Business Bureau and hold the highest form of recognition. They are an official accredited business by BBB, Better Business Bureau with an exceptional A+ rating the highest possible rating a business can get! All of their Rolex watches are 100% genuine certified & authentic with a 3 year warranty and free fedex shipping.

They claim that they offer genuine Rolex watches at substantial discounts to the manufacturer's suggested retail price. Because they are an independent dealer of new and pre-owned Rolex watches, they are able to avoid manufacturer's pricing controls and forward greater discounts to their customers.

Personally, I haven’t bought any watches from them and I am not an expert in Rolex watch. Thus, if you are thinking to buy Rolex watch, why don’t you click in the link and see yourself.

What Can I do?

As a person that likes to do handy craft, sometimes I am wondering whether I can make a living just from doing craft. I know that you probably said I can make something and sell it on ebay or etsy. The problem is I don’t want to sell myself short and if I really want to sell my handmade things, nobody will be able to afford to buy my stuff. Another option is to write pattern and sell in online. I like this idea more. I always like to knit or to crochet my own design. I only have to write it down the pattern, then I could either self-published my pattern or sell it to magazine.

Anyway, if you have question about job related, you can go to (Career Advice and Development). You can either look up at their existing Q&A or you can ask them.


I don't know about other people, but I love ruffles. Ruffles makes me feel feminine and pretty. I really like the cardigan in this picture. I love the ruffles along the edge and also love the flair on the sleeves. I will make something like this someday. Not exactly the same as I don't have the pattern for the one in the picture, but something similar.

Need Vacation?

I was travelling quite a lot before I got married. Every year, my family always went for vacation. There are some countries that I haven’t got the time to visit, such as Japan, Korea, India, Africa, and New Zealand. After watching “Lord of The Ring” movie, me and my husband planning to go there someday. The view is breathtaking and both of us have never been to New Zealand before. The problem is we don’t have enough saving to go for holiday this year as we just bought our house.

Not enough money did not stop me from surfing the internet to find a good deal to go to New Zealand, however. When I was surfing in the internet to find good deal for our accommodation, I came across this fantastic deal to stay in Accor’s Hotels (Sofitel, Pullman, Grand Mercure, Novotel, Mercure, All Seasons and Ibis hotels). Hotel rates in 27 cities across 10 countries in Asia Pacific are being reduced in Accor Hotels City Super Sale.

Storing Your Yarn Scraps

Crocheters store their yarn scraps in all manner of ways, from bags or containers stuffed in whatever closet has room to a variety of creative storage bins made from buckets, boxes, crates or totes. For maximum efficiency, easily accessible cubicle-style storage units make it much easier to sort, store and locate scrap yarn colors when needed. Plastic crates make great storage units; they come in a variety of sizes, stack easily on top of each other and are relatively inexpensive at discount department stores.

Before setting up your choice of yarn bins, be sure to select a wise location, preferably in an unobtrusive place in the living area of your home where it's cool, dry and clean. While you want the location to be handy for you, you do not want it to be accessible to pets and small children. Avoid places like an unfinished basement that can incur water leakage or mold, or a garage that houses dirty machinery, chemicals or little critters that might decide to nestle in or chew on your yarn.

Once you have selected a good location and set up your preferred type of storage-bin unit, you need to sort your yarn scraps by color and value. To help you see the colors more truly, lay them out on a white or neutral-color carpet or sheet. If you look at the color wheel below, you'll notice that the colors are arranged in "families" by value from lightest to darkest, so you should sort your yarn scraps in the same manner. Put each multicolored yarn in the pile with its predominant solid color. Put black, white, off-white and gray yarns in their own separate piles.

Once you have all of your color groups sorted, store them in the cubicles in whatever manner makes the most sense or is most workable for you. One way is to put the darkest-value shades of each color in the cubicles across the bottom row. Leave the column of cubicles on the right or left end free for the black, white, off-white and gray yarns.

In the corresponding cubicles across the next row, put the next darkest shade of each color, and so on with each row, ending with the lightest-value shades in the top row (similar to how the color groups are arranged on the color wheel). If you have only a small amount of several colors, they may be able to share cubicles.

With a small investment in time and effort and relatively low cost, you can have a well-organized system for efficiently locating specific colors in your leftover yarns when you need them. In addition, being able to view all those wonderful colors in various shades at a glance will be sure to inspire lots of crochet creativity when planning your projects!

My Dream Furniture

If money is no object, I would like to have wooden furnitures in my home. Wood is a material that can add a lot of warmth to a room. This feeling of warm is all psychological but it can go a long way to making a room more comfortable especially when it is chilly outdoors. Although I like rustic furniture, but I prefer my furnitures to have modern style.

Advantage of Internet

I find internet is the most wonderful tool to find things. Not only you can find any information online, but nowadays we can buy almost anything from the comfort of our home. With internet you will often have access to options that you never knew existed. You will also have many more choices and can often find a better deal on items online than in a brick and mortar store. One of examples that are advantageous to buy online is buying auto parts. With the ability to search millions of websites and many different stores, you may be much more likely to find the right part for even the most obscure type of vehicle online than in the offline world. You may also find a better price at the same time.

Business in The Internet

Nowadays, if you are looking for something, the first place to look is in the internet. I know because that is what I do. Whenever I was looking for something (dresses, threads, yarns, etc), I will google it. I know that I am not the only one who does that. Having said that, I think I don’t exaggerated when I said that the internet is extremely important to business. The internet is our modern business card. I would say to anybody who is doing a business not web based that you still need an Internet presence.

If you have already out there in the internet but you still have low number of sales enquiries although you have lots of click, or your advertisement keeps dropping off the first page, or you don’t really understand about SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Adwords, keywords, or all that mumbo jumbo, then it’s about time for you to contact is an online marketing firm based in Melbourne, Australia. This company has a “can do” attitude that can help the clients all the way to generate the positive return or whatever goal that you have in mind.

In 2008, offers the following online services:
1. Search Engine Optimisation
2. Pay Per Click Marketing & Management
3. Website Performance & Conversion Analysis
4. Custom Website Design & Development

Remember that you can be listed NUMBER 1 in Google sponsored links section, and pay LESS per click than other websites below you if you know how to do it correctly.

Summer Top

I love lacy top for summer. This particular top looks elegant enough to wear even for a party with correct accessories. Did I tell you before that I love empire waist top. You look slimmer wearing it since it accentuate your smallest part of the body. I know some people hate empire waist, but somehow it looks good on me :)

This particular top is easy to make. I think it also has no shaping. The shaping is provided by the ribbon. I didn't see armhole shaping either. If you put it flat, probably it's just a T shape.

One think I don't like is that the shoulder will easily drop off. You can see in the model there, that one of the shoulder almost drop off.

Digital Signage

More and more industries are using digital signage for their advertising or their other messages. It’s far more efective than normal printed sign or banner. The benefits of digital signage over traditional static signs are that the content can be exchanged more easily, animations can be shown, and the signs can adapt to the context and audience, even interactively. Digital signage also offers superior return on investment compared to traditional printed signs as using digital signage means your advertisements, banner, or messages are free of vandalism, theft and the weather.

Probably you are asking now what Digital Signage is and where you can get one. Digital signage is a form of electronic display that shows information, advertising and other messages. If you company interested to use digital signage, you can contact Dynamax Technologies. Dynamax is one of the a global leader in digital signage software applications, and a leading designer of digital out-of-home (OOH) communications networks for media content owners and distributors, retailers, government agencies, universities, and Fortune Global 500 corporations.

Either you have a small company or a big one, and need to connect with core target audiences by eliminating many of the complexities associated with launching and maintaining digital signage networks, Dynamax is the one you should call.

Fiction Writers Using Knitting Themes

Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. The neighborhood knit shop starts a class entitled Knit to Quit to encourage the clients to quit smoking, lessen stress or make any other life change they may want. The concept is intriguing, and you can be sure there will be unexpected twists to the plot! If you've read any of the previous Blossom Street series, there will be both old friends and newcomers to the group. If you've already enjoyed the Blossom Street series, you might like to join a Knit-a-long for one of the patterns mentioned. Leisure Arts provides the patterns, and knitters around the world are having fun knitting the same projects together.

Dropped Dead Stitch by Maggie Sefton. This is the seventh of the series about our heroine, novice knitter, CPA and amateur sleuth Kelly Flynn. She finds time to knit with the regulars at the House of Lambspun in addition to bringing criminals to justice. The action takes place in Colorado, where the altitude and the adventures are high!

Death by Cashmere and Patterns in the Sand, both by Sally Goldenbaum. In Death by Cashmere, we meet the Seaside Knitters, led by Izzy Chambers, who moves to the Cape Cod town where she spent summers as a child. In this idyllic community, a mysterious death involves Izzy and her friends in the investigation. The sequel, Patterns in the Sand, continues the story set in Sea Harbor, Mass., with another mystery to solve. A hat pattern is included for your community knitting pleasure.

Knit Two is Kate Jacobs' Friday Night Knitting Club sequel. Those who have read the first installment will appreciate the chance to become reacquainted with the Manhattan circle of knitting friends in this novel. In addition to a moving story line, Ms. Jacobs has included an afghan pattern and two recipes for your pleasure.

Beach Street Knitting & Yarn Club by Gil McNeil is an interesting read. After the unexpected end of her marriage, Jo Mackenzie takes her sons from their London flat to the seaside, where her grandmother is ready to retire from the knit shop she owns. The opportunity for a new life is intoxicating for Jo, and under her guidance, the yarn shop becomes a hub of activity for knitting friends of diverse backgrounds and occupations. I really enjoyed this book, but will warn that the salty language of some characters may startle some knitters!


Probably you are all aware that asbestos is dangerous to human health. Asbestos is toxic and inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses, including malignant mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis (a type of pneumoconiosis). Since the mid 1980s, many uses of asbestos have been banned in several countries.

However it is a fact that asbestos is very useful because of its resistance to heat, electricity and chemical damage, its sound absorption and tensile strength. No wonder it called Asbestos, or miracle mineral because of its soft and pliant properties, as well as its ability to withstand heat. Statistic shows that in in 2006, 2.3 million tons of asbestos were mined worldwide.

Like many other dangerous products, the manufacturers of asbestos knew about its potential dangers before they revealed it to the public. As a result thousands of people were needlessly exposed to this dangerous substance. Asbestos litigation is the longest, most expensive mass tort in U.S. history.

Litigation of asbestos materials has been a difficult entity to muster because of the multiple factors which play a role in every case. People who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are often entitled to compensation, and working with an aggressive and experienced Mesothelioma Lawyer make a big difference. Many manufacturers of asbestos have gone bankrupt over the years and only an experienced lawyer can help victims receive compensations.

You'll love how cushiony our Bachelor's Button Rug feels to your feet, especially when you have to stand while working, like washing dishes at the kitchen sink. It's easy to change the shape and make the rug square or rectangular instead, and you can make it larger simply by adding more motifs to each row and more rows to the rug.

Pink Ribbon Gumballs

If you like to eat gumball, now you can enjoy gumball and support breast cancer research and the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund. How? Just buy Pink Ribbon Gumball. If you have your own business, especially salons, spas or other "women oriented" businesses, you can buy the Pink Ribbon Gumballs machine. Having experienced loosing someone dear because of breast cancer, I am glad to get involved in helping the research.

Wildflower Quilt

If you saw this in the store, will you buy it? How much are you willing to pay for it? or if you make this, how much are you willing to sell?

I can't imagine how many hours go into this quilt, but I wish that I have the patient to tackle this project and able to finish it. How heavenly to be able to sleep under this quilt.
