Coupons - Free Butterfingers

I was at Kroger's yesterday and I noticed that they had coupons on a Butterfinger display. The coupon was for a $1.00 of one Butterfinger and one Butterfinger Snackerz. There was no price tags so I only grabbed one of each figuring I would pay a little bit. When I rang them out, Kroger had a sale on them for $.50 each. Which made them free after the coupon. How cool is that! No tax on food in Ohio. I went back through two more times because I was in a hurry. As long as I rang one coupon per transaction the salesclerk didn't fuss too much. I may go back in the morning to get more!

Over on IAP we have a pen swap every year called PITH (pen in the hat). The theme was your partner's national flag colors and my partner was from the USA so red, white, and blue. This year I was partnered with traderdon55. Here is the pen that I made for him. It is a Rhodium Jr Gent Rollerball from Exotic Blanks and a cast PR blank from RAdams.

Wolfe's Pens -N- Things - Busy Times Ahead

Busy things are happening for us. We have been working to expand our product line. Alicia has been working on scroll saw art and I have been turning bowls and key chains. We actually hope to be ready for art and craft shows this fall. We can now accept all major credits cards. Look for photos of our new products in the weeks ahead. If any of you are looking for anything in particular let us know. We might just be able to craft it for you.

New Days Off

For those that need to know I have finally gotten better days off at my full time job. I now have Sunday/Monday off from the prison. I am hoping to spend more time with family now as well as go to church. I would also like to start doing craft shows this fall. And maybe catch a football game one in a while. Now only 5 years and I can start working first shift!

Coupons - My Kroger Trip - 50% Savings!

Went to Kroger's today and with coupons and the Kroger card, I saved $56.32 and spent $58.42 cash. Almost 50% in savings. Kroger has the Mega Event going on right now where if you buy 10 of the right items you get $5 off. You can use that in conjunction with coupons for even more savings. I was able to get the full size Tombstone pizzas for $.99 because of coupons from Facebook/Tombstone. Lipton Tea - I was able to use both a coupon that was loaded on my Kroger card and one I clipped from an insert to get $1.30 off a $2.49 box of tea bags. There are many savings like that if you take the time to look for them. I was able to get Philadelphia Cream Cheese for -$.01. That's right, Kroger's paid me to buy their product. $.99 because of the Mega event and a $1.00/1 coupon equals free! I hope I can encouragement others to find these deals too.

Wolfe's Pens -N- Things - Wood From a Coworker

Every now and then two of my coworkers give me some wood to use. This was from a load of Apple and Chestnut. This piece was one of the Chestnut limbs that I am hoping to make some bowls with. It has some nice grain to it. This was one of the smaller pieces that I will use for pen blanks.

Photography Help?

I have been trying to figure out my new (to me) DSLR. It is a Nikon D100. I am including a photo that I have not touched up other than to resize to 800x600. I have tried to keep the camera on all auto settings. Can anyone give me some pointers? I know I can fix the photo with software but I really want to take better photos without needing to do much with software. I have not cropped the photo yet. And that is supposed to be a white background. It was taken in a photo tent with 2 lights on the side and one over it. Let me know if you need any other info about the camera or the photo.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my email and computer were somehow hacked last night. I use similar passwords for everything so I am in the process of finding the keylogger on my computer and changing the passwords for everything I visit. I really, really hate hackers.

Weight Loss and Exercise 2

I am on track towards my goal. I have increased my walking at work. I am doing so much now that I am getting blisters and my co-workers are asking me to sit down instead of the inmates. I did 20 min. of step aerobics last night on the Wii while watching TV. Gonna shoot for 30 min. tonight. Diet is so-so. Not eating much but that has nothing to do with dieting. Wii said I was 276 lbs last night and the regular scale said 280 this morning so not sure which is accurate. Trying to stay optimistic about this whole thing.

Wolfe's Pens -N- Things - Wood ID Help 2

This is a burl (?) a coworker gave me. I think it has been sitting out too long as it is pretty beat up but I am hoping to salvage something from it. But I am trying to figure out what it is. He thought it might be cherry but I am wondering if it isn't walnut. It did come from a tree in my part of Ohio. Thanks again for your help.

Wolfe's Pens -N- Things - Wood ID Help

Picked up some wood and realized I have no idea what kind it is. The only clues I have is that it was packaged in Indonesia and it is hardwood. The first 6 are 1/2" and the 2nd 6 are 3/4". I slightly dampened the wood after sanding and took pictures of the side grain and end grain. Any help identifying this wood would be greatly appreciated. TIA
