My latest knitting project is some striped black and purple wrist warmers. It can often be cold in the winter and it is nice with some wrist warmers when you work on the computer or do crafting.
The wrist warmers were supposed to be for myself, but alas I made them a bit too small so they ended up as a gift for a friend. She is very happy with them though 🙂

Here is a picture of the wrist warmers:

Students can sell essays to

As I am living with two students I know how hard it can be to live with the small funds they receive during the time they study. They are both looking for alternative ways to make money like getting stray jobs and saving money in every possible way. Right now when the economy is in recession it is even harder for them to find money.

One way students can make money is by selling essays to Students can earn up to 176€ (about $228) for their written work. The essays can be in any language and, contain photos and graphics.
In addition to essays you can also submit other written articles like term papers and book reports.
When you are registered at the website you also get big discounts on buying other essays. You can also do bartering to get even cheaper solutions.
You can submit essays in categories such as art, economics, natural sciences and more. have a section on their website with the newest articles added to their site. There you can get an indication on what kind of essays they are interested in. They also have a section with free essays that can be helpful if you are very low on cash and need an essay.

Selling your written work seems like a nice idea if you need some relatively easy money.

I finished a new pair of ragg socks knitted from leftover yarn. These multi colored ones I knitted for myself since it has been pretty cold here lately (temperatures down to -18 C). I use socks like these every day during the winter so it is nice to have many pairs.

Here is a picture of the ragg socks. I have used them for a few days so that is why they look a bit old 😉

Learn face painting from DVD

As we have several kids in our household it is always fun to try new things to do with the kids. One thing that we might consider trying is face painting as kids seem to love it.

Face painting can be a bit hard to do so a face paint DVD would be great for us to learn the how to do the skill.

A website called sells a DVD series called “Create Faces” where you can learn how to do face painting. The DVDs are for sale from their site and here is an example of the painted faces you can learn from the DVDs:

Here is also a video with face painting designs that are suitable for Halloween:

Video of coal ash spill in Tennessee

Here is a video of a massive coal ash spill in Tennessee, USA. 2.6 million cubic yards of this awful mess spilled into the river and this about 48 times more than the Exxon Valdez by volume. I hope there is a massive clean up so the nature will not hurt too much!

Find portable soccer nets

I have been a big fan of soccer for quite some time and I even enjoy playing it during the summer months. Soccer is a nice activity to stay in shape and to have fun with your family and friends. I especially like to set up big tournaments where we have made different teams to compete with each other during a weekend.

When we are playing it can be nice to have some Soccer Nets for our game. A place to buy portable soccer nets is where you can find different types of goals. The goals include pretty big sized soccer nets, pop up portable nets and soccer rebounders if you should prefer that. Soccer rebounders can be great for training as they send back the ball after you hit the goal.
You can also find other types of goals at this online store, including street hockey goals if you like that sport better than soccer.
They offer their products at competitive prices and flat shipping rates (the rates depends on how fast you want to receive your soccer nets). ships their products to all states in the US so if you live there and like soccer this webshop should be great for you.
