These are very small problems in the scheme of the universe, but I’m thinking some of my smart friends can help.
#1 Our digital camera got lost on our August Oregon trip, and I keep putting off buying a new one. Does anyone have strong feelings about a user-friendly, affordable, but takes fantastic pictures model? Someone yesterday told me Canon ones are good. Anyone?
#2 I’m not really a crafter, but I have this idea in my head that would be fun to make for my kids for Christmas, which I’m not really sure how to execute. Here it is… Because our kids all have “traditional” names, there are lots of famous/historical/heroic people who share each of their names. What I want to make is something with their name (maybe those chunky wooden letters they have at craft stores?), and then written all over it is a list of the people. So, Sam would have a big SAM on his wall, and on it would be Samuel, old testament prophet…Samuel the Lamanite…Samuel Adams, American revolutionary…Samuel Taylor Coleridge, English poet…etc. Can you picture it? Can you tell me how to make it? Can you help me think of a boy name for this new baby?
