Sorry for the lack of updates lately. My parents moved halfway around the world and accidentally took my USB cord with them. Shipping from where they are would be prohibitively expensive, so I had to find a new one. Turns out that it's rather hard to find USB cords for my almost-antique camera, but I finally found and ordered one online--once it arrives, I have lots of pictures for y'all. :)
Meanwhile, here's a great post I came across, by a blogger named Jessica, about how to make a gift bow from scrap paper. I personally think that items made from recycled materials usually have much more personality and character than items made from new, and this bow is a fine example of that philosophy!
