  4. Pipe cleaners are an excellent investment for a craft box.
  5. I really growing crystals and seeing the finished result.
  6. And, related to 5., one woman's magical/scientific crystal-making potion is another woman's poison.
  7. Blogging is quite effective at stopping me mentally packing for our Dublin trip for the entire month of December - I only made a packing list on the 16th.
  8. There is time to do a crafty type thing between getting home from school and getting dinner on but it's not always a good idea.
People, I am off to Dublin until the new year but I will be back. The name of the blog will change and it will be at .  Anyone eagle-eyed will have noticed that the address was already redirecting to the conquering crafts one - the magic of the internet did that and will continue to do so.
