After reading Ann&#39;s delicious memoir, I know we can trust this endearing guide to enlighten us in all things French culinary. Now let&#39;s hear what Ann has to say about a less charming host, one that lives and thrives on cheese...</p>\r\n<p><strong>Les Artisons</strong></p>\r\n<p>I learned the word &quot;artison&quot; while eating cheese&#0160;in St-Etienne, France. Near the end of a lavish lunch, my host offered a groaning board of local <em>fromages</em>. He selected one, tapped some powder off its surface into a small glass bowl, and handed me a magnifying glass. I saw a bunch of crumbs moving constantly, tiny specks that sometimes jumped. “<em>Ce sont des artisons</em>,” — cheese mites — he told me. “Small spiders that live in the cheese.” It was completely absorbing and also a little repulsive.</p>\r\n<p>Ever since that meal, my fascination with cheese mites has only grown. And so, on a recent visit to Paris, I visited one of my favorite <em>fromagers</em>&#0160;—&#0160;Michel Fouchereau at&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.lafromageriedauteuil.fr/\" target=\"_blank\">La Fromagerie d’Auteuil</a>&#0160;— to find out more about these microscopic creatures — also called&#0160;<em>cirons,&#0160;</em>in French&#0160;— what they do, and why they’re (sometimes) dangerous.</p>\r\n<p>Fouchereau who, as a <em>Meilleur Ouvrier de France</em> (best craftsman of France) is one of the most informative sources on fromage, thinks of cheese as an animal.&#0160;“We raise it, age it, and sell it so it’s consumed at its peak,” he said.</p>\r\n<div>Cheese mites, he explained, are microorganisms that exist everywhere — “even in a draft of air” — but they especially love the damp, cool atmosphere found in the&#0160;<em>cave d’affinage</em>, or cheese-aging chamber. They flock to cooked, pressed cheeses like Comté, or Cantal, boring into the crust, moving steadily towards the softer center, leaving behind a floral, sweet flavor. If left to their own devices, the&#0160;<em>artisons</em>&#0160;will take over a cheese until it becomes inedible.&#0160;Many hard cheeses are, in fact, treated to deter&#0160;<em>cirons</em>&#0160;— the rind of Parmesan, for example, is oiled; cheddar is traditionally wrapped in cloth.</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"color: #000000; font-family: Georgia, &#39;Times New Roman&#39;, serif;\">&#0160;<br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://french-word-a-day.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mimolette\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://french-word-a-day.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 500px;\" title=\"Mimolette\" /></a><br /><br /></span></div>\r\n<div>There is one French cheese, however, that welcomes these microscopic creatures as part of its aging process: Mimolette. Produced in Lille, near the&#0160;Belgian border, it’s a hard, orange cheese with a thick crust riddled with holes. Mimolette starts out like any old pressed cheese, but at one or two months old, it’s taken to a special chamber and inoculated with&#0160;<em>artisons</em>. The microscopic creatures nibble relentlessly, burrowing into the crust, aerating the cheese, and dramatically reducing the mimolette’s bulk. The result is a dense, salty cheese, with earthy, sweet, almost caramel, undertones. Unfortunately, the excess of mites on Mimolette&#39;s surface is considered an allergen and health hazard by the FDA; in 2013 they&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.sfgate.com/food/cheesecourse/article/Mimolette-imports-on-hold-4926637.php\" target=\"_blank\">banned</a>&#0160;the cheese from the United States.

And so, on a recent visit to Paris, I visited one of my favorite <em>fromagers</em>&#0160;—&#0160;Michel Fouchereau at&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.lafromageriedauteuil.fr/\" target=\"_blank\">La Fromagerie d’Auteuil</a>&#0160;— to find out more about these microscopic creatures — also called&#0160;<em>cirons,&#0160;</em>in French&#0160;— what they do, and why they’re (sometimes) dangerous.</p>\r\n<p>Fouchereau who, as a <em>Meilleur Ouvrier de France</em> (best craftsman of France) is one of the most informative sources on fromage, thinks of cheese as an animal.&#0160;“We raise it, age it, and sell it so it’s consumed at its peak,” he said.</p>\r\n<div>Cheese mites, he explained, are microorganisms that exist everywhere — “even in a draft of air” — but they especially love the damp, cool atmosphere found in the&#0160;<em>cave d’affinage</em>, or cheese-aging chamber. They flock to cooked, pressed cheeses like Comté, or Cantal, boring into the crust, moving steadily towards the softer center, leaving behind a floral, sweet flavor. If left to their own devices, the&#0160;<em>artisons</em>&#0160;will take over a cheese until it becomes inedible.&#0160;Many hard cheeses are, in fact, treated to deter&#0160;<em>cirons</em>&#0160;— the rind of Parmesan, for example, is oiled; cheddar is traditionally wrapped in cloth.</div>\r\n<div><span style=\"color: #000000; font-family: Georgia, &#39;Times New Roman&#39;, serif;\">&#0160;<br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://french-word-a-day.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mimolette\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://french-word-a-day.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834515cae69e201bb079e22cb970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 500px;\" title=\"Mimolette\" /></a><br /><br /></span></div>\r\n<div>There is one French cheese, however, that welcomes these microscopic creatures as part of its aging process: Mimolette. Produced in Lille, near the&#0160;Belgian border, it’s a hard, orange cheese with a thick crust riddled with holes. Mimolette starts out like any old pressed cheese, but at one or two months old, it’s taken to a special chamber and inoculated with&#0160;<em>artisons</em>. The microscopic creatures nibble relentlessly, burrowing into the crust, aerating the cheese, and dramatically reducing the mimolette’s bulk. The result is a dense, salty cheese, with earthy, sweet, almost caramel, undertones. Unfortunately, the excess of mites on Mimolette&#39;s surface is considered an allergen and health hazard by the FDA; in 2013 they&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.sfgate.com/food/cheesecourse/article/Mimolette-imports-on-hold-4926637.php\" target=\"_blank\">banned</a>&#0160;the cheese from the United States.

Goosebumps, big time. xx- Elsie&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">PS- If you haven&#39;t yet, you need to sign up for our email list in the sidebar (or just <a href=\"http://bit.ly/ABMlaunch\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">click here</span></a>) so you can be the very first to know when our new site launches.

You guys. Our products will be launching soon. Another ABM baby is being born (figurative babies, this one is WAY overdue). We&#39;re full of excitement and nerves. SO many nerves. It&#39;s gonna be fun. From now until Christmas, we get to watch all the things we&#39;ve spent this past year designing come to life, come to our doorstep, and then come to YOUR doorsteps. Goosebumps, big time. xx- Elsie&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">PS- If you haven&#39;t yet, you need to sign up for our email list in the sidebar (or just <a href=\"http://bit.ly/ABMlaunch\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">click here</span></a>) so you can be the very first to know when our new site launches.

I remember seeing <a href=\"http://joannagoddard.blogspot.com/2013/11/stocking-stuffer-photo-board-books-for.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">this family photo board book idea</span></a> on <em>A Cup of Jo</em> and thinking I would love to try making something like that for our kiddo. It turned out to be a great project that Lucy just loves! We enjoy looking at each page and watching her point at the faces when we call out the names. Pretty soon she&#39;ll be spelling the names, and then you know what comes next.... Ivy League college applications!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After a couple of tries, I figured out a quick and easy way to make this board book using common crafting tools and supplies.

It&#39;s important that each size is exact, or your final pages will be a little wonky. But if you don&#39;t mind the wonkiness, then I don&#39;t mind, and I doubt your toddler will mind either. Not all people need to be perfectionists!</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Step Two:</strong> Cut your photos to the same size as your chipboard squares— 5&quot; x 5&quot;. I printed two 5&quot; x 5&quot; photos with names on them onto each sheet of photo paper, and then trimmed them down to their exact size.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you don&#39;t have a printer at home, you can take your 8.5&quot; x 11&quot; files to a copy store, or go to a drug store to get 5&quot; x 7&quot; photos printed, and then cut them down to size when you get home. It is important that your paper be photo quality though, so it can hold up to being handled frequently. Also— if you don&#39;t have software to add names to the photos, you can use a Sharpie paint pen to add white or black writing on the photos.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></span></a></span><strong>Step Three:</strong> Use duct tape or packaging tape* to connect each page together. <strong>Leave a tiny bit of space between each page for the thickness of the photos that you&#39;ll adhere to them.</strong> Carefully trim away the excess tape with an X-Acto blade.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">*<em>For the first book I made, I used duct tape for this step, but I wasn&#39;t happy with how thick the tape was, so for the second book, I used clear packaging tape and found I liked how it turned out much better.</em></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a></span></span>At this point, check to make sure you have enough chipboard pages for each photo you plan to put inside the book.

Make sure the back of each photo is evenly coated (all the way to the edges), but try not to use too much adhesive or it will build up under the paper and goop will ooze out the sides of the page.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Carefully match up the corners of your photo to the corners of the chipboard piece it&#39;s going on. Starting at the outer edge of the paper, smooth the paper onto the chipboard with the back of your hand. For aesthetic purposes, I think it&#39;s more important that the outer edges of the photos match up with the chipboard than for the inner edges to meet up. If you cut them perfectly to size, it won&#39;t matter– it&#39;ll be a perfect fit!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">*<em>Do not lay new photos onto a backdrop that has already been used, or it will get adhesive onto the front of your photos.</em></span></p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec21af970b-popup\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec21af970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a><strong>Step Five:</strong> Once all of the pages have been filled with photos, it&#39;s time to add the book&#39;s binding tape. I used white duct tape for this because it matches the background of the cover photo I used. Simply smooth the tape onto the front cover alongside the binding, then smooth it onto the edge of the binding, and then onto the back of the book. Trim away the excess tape.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a><strong>Step Six:</strong> Spray adhesive onto the back of the cover photos just as you did the inside photos, and put them in place, smoothing from the outside in.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Note about adhesive:</strong> When I first attempted this project, I tried using Mod Podge to affix each image to the chipboard, but it was wrinkling my photos and warping the chipboard— not to mention it took forever waiting for each spread to dry before continuing to the next one! I considered using an ATG gun (basically just double-sided tape), glue dots, or rubber cement, but in the end, spray adhesive won out because of it&#39;s durability. Spray mount, though less forgiving when placing each image, worked like a dream! I know from past experience with <a href=\"http://amzn.to/Z2g4EE\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scotch&#39;s Super 77 Spray Adhesive</span></a> that it holds very well over time when the appropriate amount is used. (Do not— I repeat DO NOT cut corners when it comes to buying quality spray adhesive! It&#39;s not worth it!) The luster finish of <a href=\"http://amzn.to/1EeiyRc\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">the photo paper</span></a> I used protects the images from sticky hands and will hopefully last for a long time!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079271a0970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079271a0970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079271a0970d-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></span></a></span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0773593970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0773593970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0773593970c-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a>Once I figured out the best method to use for making this board book, it was really easy and surprisingly quick! Taking the time to accurately cut each page was the bulk of the work involved, but it goes much better when you frequently change your X-Acto blade.

I remember seeing <a href=\"http://joannagoddard.blogspot.com/2013/11/stocking-stuffer-photo-board-books-for.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">this family photo board book idea</span></a> on <em>A Cup of Jo</em> and thinking I would love to try making something like that for our kiddo. It turned out to be a great project that Lucy just loves! We enjoy looking at each page and watching her point at the faces when we call out the names. Pretty soon she&#39;ll be spelling the names, and then you know what comes next.... Ivy League college applications!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After a couple of tries, I figured out a quick and easy way to make this board book using common crafting tools and supplies.

It&#39;s important that each size is exact, or your final pages will be a little wonky. But if you don&#39;t mind the wonkiness, then I don&#39;t mind, and I doubt your toddler will mind either. Not all people need to be perfectionists!</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Step Two:</strong> Cut your photos to the same size as your chipboard squares— 5&quot; x 5&quot;. I printed two 5&quot; x 5&quot; photos with names on them onto each sheet of photo paper, and then trimmed them down to their exact size.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you don&#39;t have a printer at home, you can take your 8.5&quot; x 11&quot; files to a copy store, or go to a drug store to get 5&quot; x 7&quot; photos printed, and then cut them down to size when you get home. It is important that your paper be photo quality though, so it can hold up to being handled frequently. Also— if you don&#39;t have software to add names to the photos, you can use a Sharpie paint pen to add white or black writing on the photos.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760ad3970c-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></span></a></span><strong>Step Three:</strong> Use duct tape or packaging tape* to connect each page together. <strong>Leave a tiny bit of space between each page for the thickness of the photos that you&#39;ll adhere to them.</strong> Carefully trim away the excess tape with an X-Acto blade.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">*<em>For the first book I made, I used duct tape for this step, but I wasn&#39;t happy with how thick the tape was, so for the second book, I used clear packaging tape and found I liked how it turned out much better.</em></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec20aa970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a></span></span>At this point, check to make sure you have enough chipboard pages for each photo you plan to put inside the book. Don&#39;t forget to add photos of family pets!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760c27970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760c27970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d0760c27970c-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a><strong>Step Four:</strong> Arrange your photos onto a clean, disposable surface* and spray with an even coat of adhesive. Make sure the back of each photo is evenly coated (all the way to the edges), but try not to use too much adhesive or it will build up under the paper and goop will ooze out the sides of the page.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Carefully match up the corners of your photo to the corners of the chipboard piece it&#39;s going on. Starting at the outer edge of the paper, smooth the paper onto the chipboard with the back of your hand. For aesthetic purposes, I think it&#39;s more important that the outer edges of the photos match up with the chipboard than for the inner edges to meet up. If you cut them perfectly to size, it won&#39;t matter– it&#39;ll be a perfect fit!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">*<em>Do not lay new photos onto a backdrop that has already been used, or it will get adhesive onto the front of your photos.</em></span></p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec21af970b-popup\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec21af970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a><strong>Step Five:</strong> Once all of the pages have been filled with photos, it&#39;s time to add the book&#39;s binding tape. I used white duct tape for this because it matches the background of the cover photo I used. Simply smooth the tape onto the front cover alongside the binding, then smooth it onto the edge of the binding, and then onto the back of the book. Trim away the excess tape.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6ec2226970b-800wi\" title=\"How to easily make a children&#39;s board book- perfect for learning family names!\" /></a><strong>Step Six:</strong> Spray adhesive onto the back of the cover photos just as you did the inside photos, and put them in place, smoothing from the outside in.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Note about adhesive:</strong> When I first attempted this project, I tried using Mod Podge to affix each image to the chipboard, but it was wrinkling my photos and warping the chipboard— not to mention it took forever waiting for each spread to dry before continuing to the next one! I considered using an ATG gun (basically just double-sided tape), glue dots, or rubber cement, but in the end, spray adhesive won out because of it&#39;s durability. Spray mount, though less forgiving when placing each image, worked like a dream! I know from past experience with <a href=\"http://amzn.to/Z2g4EE\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scotch&#39;s Super 77 Spray Adhesive</span></a> that it holds very well over time when the appropriate amount is used. (Do not— I repeat DO NOT cut corners when it comes to buying quality spray adhesive! It&#39;s not worth it!)

You are so awesome, did you know that? Look at you -- committing to writing in your Talking To God Journals twice a week and sharing what&#39;s great about it -- and what&#39;s hard. Keep up the amazing work. Do it.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Last time we talked about how we start our conversations with God, and we heard everything from &quot;Dear God&quot; to &quot;Good morning, Daddy!&quot; As a couple of you pointed out, it can depend on what&#39;s going on with you. On a peaceful day you might write, &quot;Monin&#39;, God,&quot; but in one of those times when you&#39;re ready to flush somebody down the toilet you might just plunge right in with, &quot;God -- I am SO MADDDD!&quot; The important thing is that you&#39;re real.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">When Jesus talks about prayer in the Gospel, he says, &quot;This, then, is how you should pray.&quot; (Matthew&#0160; 6:9) It doesn&#39;t get any clearer than that, right?<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">And he starts with this:</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&quot;Our Father in heaven,</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">hallowed be your name.&quot;&#0160; &#0160; </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Right off the bat we might have a problem understanding that because, um, what does &quot;hallowed&quot; mean? </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; To &quot;hallow&quot; something is to make it holy and sacred. It&#39;s perfect and blessed and pure. <br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; So -- to hallow God&#39;s name is to consider it sacred. That&#39;s why in the Ten Commandments God tells us not to use his name for anything except to pray to him and share him with other people. Using God&#39;s name to swear (taking his name in vain ... using it for no good purpose) is pretty ugly stuff, right?<br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Jesus is saying that when we pray, we need to ask that God&#39;s name be kept holy. We&#39;re not saying, &quot;God, your name is sacred.&quot; God knows that. We&#39;re saying, &quot;God, please show people who you are -- so they&#39;ll know that you&#39;re holy and pure and good.&quot; </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #6000bf;\">YOUR TALKING TO GOD JOURNAL TOPIC SUGGESTION: Write about people you know who don&#39;t see God as holy, who may use God&#39;s name as part of profanity or just don&#39;t get how pure and good God is. Ask God to show himself to them. And to you -- if you sometimes forget that God is to be &quot;hallowed.&quot;</span></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #c00000;\">IF YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON THIS POST: Tell us how it feels to you when you hear someone &quot;taking God&#39;s name in vain,&quot; or showing that they don&#39;t see God as holy (they aren&#39;t hallowing him). Don&#39;t mention names of course, and don&#39;t quote anything ugly. Focus on how it makes YOU feel. If you&#39;ve sort of gotten used to it, you can tell us about that too. </span></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #c00000;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">I&#39;m going on vacation next week, but I will still have posts for you on Tuesday and Friday.

On a peaceful day you might write, &quot;Monin&#39;, God,&quot; but in one of those times when you&#39;re ready to flush somebody down the toilet you might just plunge right in with, &quot;God -- I am SO MADDDD!&quot; The important thing is that you&#39;re real.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">When Jesus talks about prayer in the Gospel, he says, &quot;This, then, is how you should pray.&quot; (Matthew&#0160; 6:9) It doesn&#39;t get any clearer than that, right?<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">And he starts with this:</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&quot;Our Father in heaven,</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">hallowed be your name.&quot;&#0160; &#0160; </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Right off the bat we might have a problem understanding that because, um, what does &quot;hallowed&quot; mean? </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; To &quot;hallow&quot; something is to make it holy and sacred. It&#39;s perfect and blessed and pure. <br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; So -- to hallow God&#39;s name is to consider it sacred. That&#39;s why in the Ten Commandments God tells us not to use his name for anything except to pray to him and share him with other people. Using God&#39;s name to swear (taking his name in vain ... using it for no good purpose) is pretty ugly stuff, right?<br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; Jesus is saying that when we pray, we need to ask that God&#39;s name be kept holy. We&#39;re not saying, &quot;God, your name is sacred.&quot; God knows that. We&#39;re saying, &quot;God, please show people who you are -- so they&#39;ll know that you&#39;re holy and pure and good.&quot; </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #6000bf;\">YOUR TALKING TO GOD JOURNAL TOPIC SUGGESTION: Write about people you know who don&#39;t see God as holy, who may use God&#39;s name as part of profanity or just don&#39;t get how pure and good God is. Ask God to show himself to them. And to you -- if you sometimes forget that God is to be &quot;hallowed.&quot;</span></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #c00000;\">IF YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON THIS POST: Tell us how it feels to you when you hear someone &quot;taking God&#39;s name in vain,&quot; or showing that they don&#39;t see God as holy (they aren&#39;t hallowing him). Don&#39;t mention names of course, and don&#39;t quote anything ugly. Focus on how it makes YOU feel. If you&#39;ve sort of gotten used to it, you can tell us about that too. </span></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"><span style=\"color: #c00000;\"><span style=\"color: #111111;\">I&#39;m going on vacation next week, but I will still have posts for you on Tuesday and Friday. I probably won&#39;t refer to you by name in those because I won&#39;t be reading your comments while I&#39;m in DISNEYWORLD!!!! with my family. (yes, Maeryn&#39;s first time!). But I&#39;ll catch up when I get home - so please comment away. Do remember, though, to stay with the topic in red on the post. Keep prayer requests simple (no details!).

Let her know she&#39;s one of us!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Have I mentioned recently that y&#39;all are awesome? I was studying your responses to Monday&#39;s post on a typical day in your life, and I was just so impressed with your honesty and insights. These are MY insights after reading what you shared with us:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 1. You are all busy. Like, mind boggling busy. I thought, &quot;Was I that busy in high school?&quot; and I realized, uh, yeah, I was. so I absolutely get it. <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 2. The majority of you see that you &quot;waste time.&quot;&#0160; Or what you consider to be wasting time. As <span style=\"color: #6000bf;\">KATY</span> quoted for us, &quot;You don&#39;t waste hours, you waste minutes.&quot;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 3. Sleep is an issue for a lot of you. Some of you aren&#39;t getting enough. Others are spending a large portion of the day practically in a coma. It&#39;s not unusual for you to go to bed at a decent hour and lie awake until the week hours of the morning.&#0160; <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 4. Most of you aren&#39;t all that happy with the way you&#39;re spending your time.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 5. Tablets and laptops seem to be HUGE time-suckers.&#0160; <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Okay, so first, I have a question -- and this is mostly for my own education, because I&#39;m not sure I know the answer. <span style=\"color: #c00000;\">What is it that you&#39;re doing on your tablets, laptops and computers for all those hours.</span> This is NOT a judgment of any kind, honestly. I would really like to get a realistic picture of what is pulling to that screen.&#0160; <span style=\"color: #c00000;\">Teach me, will you?</span></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">The one thing you all seemed to differ on is how much time you dedicate to just being alone with God. We&#39;ve already covered the &quot;Ya gotta spend at least twenty minutes, ladies,&quot; thing. You know that. There&#39;s way more to The Whole Christian Thing&quot; as it was intended by God to be (as far as I can tell) than &quot;doing devotions&quot; and getting on with &quot;real life.&quot; And that&#39;s what we&#39;re looking for, right?</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">So -- here&#39;s what I would love to see you do -- and before I lay it out for you and you go -- &quot;Seriously? Did she READ my comment about my schedule? I don&#39;t have TIME to do this!&quot; -- I&#39;m going on vacation next week with my family (to ... wait for it ... DISNEYWORLD!) and since it will be our first real get-away together in two years -- and our FIRST with everybody since 3 1/2 year old Maeryn was born, I&#39;m going to immerse myself in that time. That means I won&#39;t be posting again after today until Monday, November 3. So what I&#39;m about to suggest, you can do over the next 10 days. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Here&#39;s the challenge:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Take out that outline of your typical day and a pen/marker in a different color ink. </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * As you read it through, imagine that Jesus is physically there with you as you complete each task (including sleeping, surfing on your laptop -- everything)</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Next to each item (in that different color ink) write down what you think he&#39;s doing while you&#39;re occupied with whatever it is.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Guidelines for this exercise:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Don&#39;t change anything because you think&#0160; Jesus wouldn&#39;t like it. Work with what&#39;s already there. Otherwise this won&#39;t show you anything.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Don&#39;t get all judgy with yourself. Jesus isn&#39;t judging you so there&#39;s no need for you to do it either.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160; &#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Do this with an &quot;Isn&#39;t this just so interesting?&quot; attitude. See if you can sort of step outside yourself and look at this objectively. Here&#39;s an example:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160; 11:00- 4:00 play games on tablet &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160; Jesus waits for me to get done <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">During the week, feel free to give each other progress reports. You know, like, &quot;Does anybody else feel like Jesus is looking over your shoulder when you&#39;re watching youtube videos?&quot; Or, &quot;It&#39;s like Jesus has a sense of humor. I never got that before.&quot;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Have a great 10 days together. I know I&#39;ll have stories to tell and pictures to share when I get back. And hopefully I&#39;ll realize that Jesus is there -- at DisneyWorld -- through every princess sighting and tea cup ride.</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Blessings,</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Nancy Rue&#0160; </span></p>",

Here&#39;s an example:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160; 11:00- 4:00 play games on tablet &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160; Jesus waits for me to get done <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">During the week, feel free to give each other progress reports. You know, like, &quot;Does anybody else feel like Jesus is looking over your shoulder when you&#39;re watching youtube videos?&quot; Or, &quot;It&#39;s like Jesus has a sense of humor. I never got that before.&quot;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Have a great 10 days together. I know I&#39;ll have stories to tell and pictures to share when I get back. And hopefully I&#39;ll realize that Jesus is there -- at DisneyWorld -- through every princess sighting and tea cup ride.</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Blessings,</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Nancy Rue&#0160; </span></p>",

The exuberance of the garden is gone and the gardener is left with subtleties.

The bright foliage of the maples is now underfoot.&#0160;Scuffling through this debris brings the scent of childhood and the memories of raking the bounty into a plan view of a child&#39;s home. Doors, windows, kitchen and living room all made flat on the ground with neat rows of raked leaves.

Mom and I walked through the leaves in her yard yesterday and reminisced on those long ago days of childhood. She has seen 91 autumns, a feat many of us will never achieve but one to which we can aspire if only to gain a bit more knowledge of the garden and the seasonal cycles. This season has been one of bounty. <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Tomatoes-last\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; border: 3px  #000000;\" title=\"Tomatoes-last\" /></a>The last of the tomatoes are in the trug and the vegetable garden is holding some late season treasures. Fall tomatoes are not perfect but their tang is as appreciated as that of the very first tomato. Swiss chard, kale, brussel sprouts all shrug off the first frosts of the season.The last flower and the last fruit of this season&#39;s garden is close at hand and all are treasured along with the knowledge gained from the passing of yet another season. &#0160;</span></p>",

The exuberance of the garden is gone and the gardener is left with subtleties. The small blooms and berries of fall would be overlooked in the abundance of the summer garden but late in the season, after the frost, their significance increases. Who would even notice the tiny purple flowers which develop on the mint plant if they were to appear among the peonies, roses and delphiniums? &#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d59d0970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Gazebo in fall light\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d59d0970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d59d0970d-320wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; border: 3px  #000000;\" title=\"Gazebo in fall light\" /></a>Color has shifted from outrageous orange to warm bronze and copper. The bright foliage of the maples is now underfoot.&#0160;Scuffling through this debris brings the scent of childhood and the memories of raking the bounty into a plan view of a child&#39;s home. Doors, windows, kitchen and living room all made flat on the ground with neat rows of raked leaves.

Mom and I walked through the leaves in her yard yesterday and reminisced on those long ago days of childhood. She has seen 91 autumns, a feat many of us will never achieve but one to which we can aspire if only to gain a bit more knowledge of the garden and the seasonal cycles. This season has been one of bounty. <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Tomatoes-last\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://ledgeandgardens.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c991c53ef01bb079d5a59970d-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; border: 3px  #000000;\" title=\"Tomatoes-last\" /></a>The last of the tomatoes are in the trug and the vegetable garden is holding some late season treasures. Fall tomatoes are not perfect but their tang is as appreciated as that of the very first tomato.

But hot glue was pretty easy, so I decided to go that route.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">You can customize the look of this garland by painting the pine cones or using different kinds of beads.

But hot glue was pretty easy, so I decided to go that route.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">You can customize the look of this garland by painting the pine cones or using different kinds of beads.

When I ask them if they would ever try it, their response is,&nbsp;\"Nope. Not for me!\"</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Their reasons are often that they don't have time, don't like the traditional scrapbook supplies in stores, or the commitment to buy a bunch of \"stuff.\" Sometimes they simply don't like the idea of scrapbooking, saying it feels fussy or old-fashioned.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><em>I get it.</em> I do. I've struggled with all these things myself. I took a nice six-year break from making any scrapbooks at all, but in the end I did really miss it and decided to reinvent it for myself, my own way.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">As I've become more and more open to the idea of calling myself a \"scrapbooker,\" I've been seeing that it is what you make it, that it doesn't HAVE to be cheesy or expensive or incredibly time-consuming. A scrapbook can simply be a prettier photo album, OR it can be really artsy. It can also be both, depending on your mood (I love both, and I'm moody—great!). <em>It is what you make it.</em>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Today I'm here to convince the inconvincible. Raise your hand if you're like, \"No way!\" This post is for you. I want to share something that's become a really special part of my life.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Open your heart and grab a cup of coffee... it's time for my sales pitch! (spoiler—I'm gonna convert you!)&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c-pi\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance   \" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c-800wi\" alt=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance   \" border=\"0\" /></span></a>So naturally, we collaborated with our friends at <a href=\"http://goo.gl/QsBO4E\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Canon USA</span></a> on this post because printing at home is kind of a lifesaver for scrapbooking. I need my pictures in way too many shapes and sizes to try to have them printed somewhere. That printer in the picture is the <a href=\"http://goo.gl/2yzaXh\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Canon PIXMA iP8720</span></a>, which as of recently probably gets the most use for my scrapbooking because the wide format lets me print amaaazing quality up to 13x19 inches.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Now, onto the list:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>1. Your photos deserve a real life home (and your phone doesn't count!)&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I have an old cell phone sitting next to my bed. It has a ton of photos on it that aren't backed up. For more than a year now I've been meaning to back them up and print them, and then probably donate the phone to one of the many kiddos in my family that love playing kid games on it. But to be totally honest... I'm lazy.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">That cell phone is just one of MANY places where I have really special memories that haven't been printed yet.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scrapbooking makes a home for these memories. It motivates me to get organized. And as soon as I begin, I am SO thankful when I see dozens of wonderful memories that would have been forgotten.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Your photos deserve an album. One that sits on your shelf for your kiddos and your grandkids to look at. An album that you can flip through one day and remember all these great times that are happening way too fast.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>2. You can scrapbook <em>with your own style</em>, in your own taste.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I meet many people who think scrapbooking is cheesy. And you know what, they're not wrong. Scrapbooks can be cheesy.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">But you know what, it's your scrapbook, you can make it look <em>however you want</em>!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I made <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/01/scrapbooking-for-beginners-our-family-volume-1-.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">my first family album</span></a> last year, I realized that I wasn't loving a lot of the scrapbook supplies available in stores. So I focused on lots of big photos. That was how I made it feel like my style, and I loved the resulting look.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I've seen beautiful scrapbooks that were incredibly minimal, just photos and a few stories included. I've also seen beautiful scrapbooks that were super artsy, pretty much an art journal with photos. Both are great options. It's up to you to decide what fits your style.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Be encouraged that no matter what your style is, you <em>can</em> make a book that feels like you!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>3.&nbsp;Scrapbook to record stories, because memories lie.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Memories lie. Jeremy and I remember our first dates differently. Emma and I have lots of childhood stories that are a little blurry on the details, so we tell them differently. Memories change over time.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">But you know what doesn't lie? I journal entry that you wrote at that time. You can look back and read exactly what you thought or felt or experienced at that time. It might be nostalgic or it might make you cringe, but either way it will take you back.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>4. Scrapbooking will make you a better photographer.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">True story.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I'm planning to scrapbook, I take more photos. Specifically I take more detail photos. If I'm in the instagram mindset, I might be OK with 3-4 cute photos from a vacation, but if I'm in scrapbook mindset, I'll come home with ten times that many!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scrapbooking will motivate you to take more photos of the important stuff (like your family!) and the little things (like your everyday routines). It's a great reminder to tell stories through photos.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>5. Making scrapbooks will help you feel thankful and reflect.&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I made our first year of marriage book, I had the best time remembering our honeymoon, our first Christmas, our new puppy, and our one year anniversary trip to Hawaii. What a special year!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Taking the time to make the scrapbook helped me reflect on these happy memories and be really really thankful for them. Since then, each time I pull the album down from our bookshelf, I experience those emotions all over again.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Living with a thankful heart is really important to me, and scrapbooking does a weirdly good job of putting me in that mindset.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>6.&nbsp;Scrapbook to zen out, decompress and relax (glass of wine, optional!)&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">It's good to have a hobby you can do at home when you want to relax. When combined with guilty pleasure television and a glass of wine... well, even better I say!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I like projects I can do with my hands while I hang out with Jeremy, or by myself, at night. It's a good way to unwind, forget about the day, and get ready for sleep.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>7.&nbsp;Scrapbook to be creative.</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I was growing up, art class was always my favorite. I loved the process of getting a new medium (clay, paint, tissue, glue...) and making something creative with it.&nbsp;I still love that ritual today.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">The scrapbooking aisles are filled with new things to try and play with. There is no shortage of new techniques and mediums to experiment with. A lot of my favorite ideas come from taking something that's not necessarily a scrapbook supply (like yarn, contact paper, or watercolor paints) and trying to find a new creative way to use it on my pages.&nbsp;Scrapbooking can be a creative outlet, no doubt. In a way, it's multitasking because you get to be creative while doing something useful (making family albums).&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>8. Scrapbook as a gift to your family.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I love looking at my grandmother's family albums. She consistently created albums throughout her life beginning with the photos that were passed down to her, throughout every stage and season of life (I can look at my dad's first year, or my own first year!), up to the present day.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you love and appreciate the albums in your family, use them as an inspiration to get motivated to start your own! They are one of the most precious gifts you can ever make for your loved ones.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>9. Scrapbooking helps you to mark years, seasons, changes and milestones.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Most of us have a pretty fast-paced life. It's easy for me to look back at my twenties and be like, \"WHOA! That went by fast!\" But when I look at all the photos throughout those years, it reminds me how full and wonderful those years were.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Weddings, babies, moving to new homes, new jobs, graduations—these are all seasons in your life that you can document. The process of making these books is good for you to help you process each season, appreciate it, and remember the details while also creating something to look back on in the future.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>10. Scrapbooking is really really fun.</strong>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you've never tried it, it might be hard to believe. My advice is to just try it! Make one album. Don't worry about whether or not you are going to scrapbook your whole entire life... just try it.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I love making scrapbooks. It's one of the most fun projects in the world to me. The key is to find your way to do it! You need to love both the process and the end result. So make it as simple and organized or as artistic as you want. I have a feeling that if you find what works for you, you'll become as obsessed as I am!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c-pi\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c-800wi\" alt=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>I'm here to answer your questions in the comments!

When I ask them if they would ever try it, their response is,&nbsp;\"Nope. Not for me!\"</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Their reasons are often that they don't have time, don't like the traditional scrapbook supplies in stores, or the commitment to buy a bunch of \"stuff.\" Sometimes they simply don't like the idea of scrapbooking, saying it feels fussy or old-fashioned.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><em>I get it.</em> I do. I've struggled with all these things myself. I took a nice six-year break from making any scrapbooks at all, but in the end I did really miss it and decided to reinvent it for myself, my own way.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">As I've become more and more open to the idea of calling myself a \"scrapbooker,\" I've been seeing that it is what you make it, that it doesn't HAVE to be cheesy or expensive or incredibly time-consuming. A scrapbook can simply be a prettier photo album, OR it can be really artsy. It can also be both, depending on your mood (I love both, and I'm moody—great!). <em>It is what you make it.</em>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Today I'm here to convince the inconvincible. Raise your hand if you're like, \"No way!\" This post is for you. I want to share something that's become a really special part of my life.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Open your heart and grab a cup of coffee... it's time for my sales pitch! (spoiler—I'm gonna convert you!)&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c-pi\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance   \" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b938970c-800wi\" alt=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance   \" border=\"0\" /></span></a>So naturally, we collaborated with our friends at <a href=\"http://goo.gl/QsBO4E\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Canon USA</span></a> on this post because printing at home is kind of a lifesaver for scrapbooking. I need my pictures in way too many shapes and sizes to try to have them printed somewhere. That printer in the picture is the <a href=\"http://goo.gl/2yzaXh\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Canon PIXMA iP8720</span></a>, which as of recently probably gets the most use for my scrapbooking because the wide format lets me print amaaazing quality up to 13x19 inches.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Now, onto the list:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>1. Your photos deserve a real life home (and your phone doesn't count!)&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I have an old cell phone sitting next to my bed. It has a ton of photos on it that aren't backed up. For more than a year now I've been meaning to back them up and print them, and then probably donate the phone to one of the many kiddos in my family that love playing kid games on it. But to be totally honest... I'm lazy.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">That cell phone is just one of MANY places where I have really special memories that haven't been printed yet.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scrapbooking makes a home for these memories. It motivates me to get organized. And as soon as I begin, I am SO thankful when I see dozens of wonderful memories that would have been forgotten.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Your photos deserve an album. One that sits on your shelf for your kiddos and your grandkids to look at. An album that you can flip through one day and remember all these great times that are happening way too fast.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>2. You can scrapbook <em>with your own style</em>, in your own taste.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I meet many people who think scrapbooking is cheesy. And you know what, they're not wrong. Scrapbooks can be cheesy.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">But you know what, it's your scrapbook, you can make it look <em>however you want</em>!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I made <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/01/scrapbooking-for-beginners-our-family-volume-1-.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">my first family album</span></a> last year, I realized that I wasn't loving a lot of the scrapbook supplies available in stores. So I focused on lots of big photos. That was how I made it feel like my style, and I loved the resulting look.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I've seen beautiful scrapbooks that were incredibly minimal, just photos and a few stories included. I've also seen beautiful scrapbooks that were super artsy, pretty much an art journal with photos. Both are great options. It's up to you to decide what fits your style.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Be encouraged that no matter what your style is, you <em>can</em> make a book that feels like you!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>3.&nbsp;Scrapbook to record stories, because memories lie.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Memories lie. Jeremy and I remember our first dates differently. Emma and I have lots of childhood stories that are a little blurry on the details, so we tell them differently. Memories change over time.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">But you know what doesn't lie? I journal entry that you wrote at that time. You can look back and read exactly what you thought or felt or experienced at that time. It might be nostalgic or it might make you cringe, but either way it will take you back.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>4. Scrapbooking will make you a better photographer.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">True story.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I'm planning to scrapbook, I take more photos. Specifically I take more detail photos. If I'm in the instagram mindset, I might be OK with 3-4 cute photos from a vacation, but if I'm in scrapbook mindset, I'll come home with ten times that many!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Scrapbooking will motivate you to take more photos of the important stuff (like your family!) and the little things (like your everyday routines). It's a great reminder to tell stories through photos.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>5. Making scrapbooks will help you feel thankful and reflect.&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I made our first year of marriage book, I had the best time remembering our honeymoon, our first Christmas, our new puppy, and our one year anniversary trip to Hawaii. What a special year!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Taking the time to make the scrapbook helped me reflect on these happy memories and be really really thankful for them. Since then, each time I pull the album down from our bookshelf, I experience those emotions all over again.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Living with a thankful heart is really important to me, and scrapbooking does a weirdly good job of putting me in that mindset.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>6.&nbsp;Scrapbook to zen out, decompress and relax (glass of wine, optional!)&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">It's good to have a hobby you can do at home when you want to relax. When combined with guilty pleasure television and a glass of wine... well, even better I say!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I like projects I can do with my hands while I hang out with Jeremy, or by myself, at night. It's a good way to unwind, forget about the day, and get ready for sleep.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>7.&nbsp;Scrapbook to be creative.</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">When I was growing up, art class was always my favorite. I loved the process of getting a new medium (clay, paint, tissue, glue...) and making something creative with it.&nbsp;I still love that ritual today.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">The scrapbooking aisles are filled with new things to try and play with. There is no shortage of new techniques and mediums to experiment with. A lot of my favorite ideas come from taking something that's not necessarily a scrapbook supply (like yarn, contact paper, or watercolor paints) and trying to find a new creative way to use it on my pages.&nbsp;Scrapbooking can be a creative outlet, no doubt. In a way, it's multitasking because you get to be creative while doing something useful (making family albums).&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>8. Scrapbook as a gift to your family.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I love looking at my grandmother's family albums. She consistently created albums throughout her life beginning with the photos that were passed down to her, throughout every stage and season of life (I can look at my dad's first year, or my own first year!), up to the present day.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you love and appreciate the albums in your family, use them as an inspiration to get motivated to start your own! They are one of the most precious gifts you can ever make for your loved ones.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>9. Scrapbooking helps you to mark years, seasons, changes and milestones.&nbsp;</strong></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Most of us have a pretty fast-paced life. It's easy for me to look back at my twenties and be like, \"WHOA! That went by fast!\" But when I look at all the photos throughout those years, it reminds me how full and wonderful those years were.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Weddings, babies, moving to new homes, new jobs, graduations—these are all seasons in your life that you can document. The process of making these books is good for you to help you process each season, appreciate it, and remember the details while also creating something to look back on in the future.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>10. Scrapbooking is really really fun.</strong>&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">If you've never tried it, it might be hard to believe. My advice is to just try it! Make one album. Don't worry about whether or not you are going to scrapbook your whole entire life... just try it.&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">I love making scrapbooks. It's one of the most fun projects in the world to me. The key is to find your way to do it! You need to love both the process and the end result. So make it as simple and organized or as artistic as you want. I have a feeling that if you find what works for you, you'll become as obsessed as I am!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c-pi\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d076b90b970c-800wi\" alt=\"10 Reasons To Give Scrapbooking A Chance\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>I'm here to answer your questions in the comments!

Selon l’éleveur de Saint-Etienne-du-Vigan,&#0160; «&#0160;<em>15 brebis ont été attaquées, toutes au niveau de la gorge, sous le cou</em>&#0160;», trois jours plus tôt. Deux ont été tuées directement par l&#39;animal, puis mangées.<br /><br /><strong>Jeudi 16 octobre</strong>&#0160;: La préfecture de Haute-Loire annonce que la piste du loup était privilégiée après l&#39;attaque des brebis à Pradelles. &quot;<em>Il existe de fortes présomptions pour que le loup, dont la présence est avérée dans les départements voisins de l&#39;Ardèche et de la Lozère, soit responsable de cette attaque</em>&quot;. La préfecture attend les conclusions de l&#39;expertise officielle. le Préfet indique qu&#39;il réunira les professionnels agricoles et les services de l&#39;Etat concernés dès la semaine prochaine, avant d&#39;installer un comité départemental loup étendu à l&#39;ensemble des parties prenantes.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Réactions agricoles immédiates</strong></h2>\r\n<p>De son côté, sans attendre les conclusions de l’expertise, la FDSEA 43 et les Jeunes Agriculteurs de la Haute-Loire “<em>comptent demander un plan d&#39;éradication au préfet</em>” et indiquent qu&#39;ils organiseront le 20 octobre une manifestation d&#39;opposition au loup devant la préfecture du Puy-en-Velay.</p>\r\n<p>Un fois de plus les agriculteurs nient le côté naturel de la prédation et l’amoralité de la nature, préférant opposer l’acte de prédation (qui est pour eux immorale, mauvaise) aux revendications des biocentristes (des extrémistes pleins de contradictions) qui demandent que l’homme, en responsable de ses choix éthiques et de ses actions, soit respectueux des animaux dans ses pratiques d’élevage (autant que faire se peut).</p>\r\n<p>“<em>Imaginez seulement la souffrance de ces brebis… à l’heure où les agriculteurs se voient imposer des normes et une réglementation draconiennes au nom du bien-être animal, où le Parlement veut modifier le statut de l’animal dans le code civil, pour en faire un « être doué de sensibilité », quelle est la cohérence avec le fait de laisser ce prédateur pulluler et dévorer à loisir les troupeaux ? Imaginez seulement la souffrance de cet éleveur, qui voit son travail, sa passion, détruits en une seule nuit !</em>”</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Sacrifie rituel</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Une passion somme toute vénale, puisque cette “<em>souffrance</em>” se dissout dans le sentiment du devoir accompli quand l’éleveur porte ses bêtes à l’abattoir et les laisse se faire saigner “<em>à vif</em>”, sans être étourdies, un échange de leurs vies contre leur prix, en laissant les petites mains s’occuper de la basse besogne selon les pratiques rituelles des clients.</p>\r\n<p>Ce jour de mort pour les bêtes est normalement le jour de la &quot;<em>récolte&quot;,</em> de l’aboutissement du travail de l’éleveur, quoi que maintenant, ce jour est plutôt celui du paiement des primes de la PAC qui représentent 70% de la “récolte”.&#0160; Le vocabulaire utilisé est significatif : “<em>Nous refusons que nos animaux soient sacrifiés… et demandons purement et simplement l’extermination du loup sur notre territoire. Nous exigeons que l’abattage du loup soit autorisé immédiatement en Haute-Loire.</em>”</p>\r\n<p>Les mots <em>nuisibles</em>, <em>pulluler</em> et <em>éradication</em> se retrouvent souvent dans la même phrase, ils sont utilisés pour le sauvage, l&#39;incontrôlable, la nature. Le loup ne <em>pullule</em> pourtant pas en Haute-Loire, s&#39;il revient et reconquiert un ancien territoire, ils ne sont pas très nombreux.</p>\r\n<p>Les responsables de la FNSEA ne se rendent même pas compte de leurs propres contradictions. En effet, si les éleveurs refusent et jugent anormales les normes “<em>imposées</em>” et&#0160; “<em>draconniennes</em>” au nom du bien-être animal, pourquoi veulent-ils les imposer au loup, qui devrait adopter un comportement “<em>moral</em>”, se comporter en agneau en quelques sortes. La nature n’est ni bonne (morale), ni méchante (imorale), elle est amorale. Les animaux se moquent des préceptes moraux humains. Le loup mange, vit socialement en petit groupe, défend son territoire, s&#39;y déplace et s&#39;y reproduit : les besoins fondamentaux de la Pyramide de Maslow.</p>\r\n<p>L’éleveur (Aurélien Teyssier) a déclaré :“<em>Je n&#39;étais pas contre le loup avant cette attaque, mais maintenant c&#39;est différent</em>”.&#0160; Je ne suis pas, mais...</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/duplomb-laurent/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Laurent Duplomb\">Laurent Duplomb</a>, président de la Chambre d&#39;agriculture reprend lui des arguments définitifs maintes fois entendus :</p>\r\n<p>«&#0160;<em>Si nos ancêtres ont éradiqué le loup c&#39;est qu&#39;il était incompatible avec l&#39;activité humaine. C&#39;est comme pour les nitrates, le dogme écologique est partout. Il n&#39;y a que dans les livres pour enfants que le loup est dangereux. L&#39;attaque de ce week-end est considérée comme la première du loup en Haute-Loire, mais il y en a eu d&#39;autres, simplement elles ont été attribuées à des chiens errants. Dans les départements où le loup est largement présent, ce n&#39;est pas que les ovins qu&#39;il attaque, c&#39;est aussi les veaux, les vaches, les chevaux... et moi, personnellement, je suis persuadé qu&#39;un jour il s&#39;attaquera aux hommes.&#0160;» Il a rendez-vous en préfecture le 21 octobre et compte également demander, officiellement, « l’éradication du loup en Haute-Loire <em>»</em></em>.</p>\r\n<p><em>&quot;Si nos ancêtres...&quot; </em>:<em>&#0160;</em>le poids de la tradition et de l&#39;immobilisme, cette chose si facile à revendiquer quand on a décidé de ne pas réfléchir pour ne pas avoir à changer de comportement, ne pas sortir de son confort et de son égoïsme, le grand sac de la tradition où l&#39;on retrouve en vrac l&#39;esclavage, la corrida, la chasse-à-courre, le bûcher des sorcières, la peine de mort, l&#39;excision et d&#39;autres joyeusetés traditionnelles<em>. </em>Nos ancètres ont réfléchi pour nous: y a plus qu&#39;à faire pareil...</p>\r\n<p><strong>Vendredi 17 octobre</strong> :&#0160; Congrès de l&#39;Association nationale des élus de la montagne, l&#39;ANEM, à Chambéry. <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/valls-manuel/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Manuel Valls\">Manuel Valls</a>, premier ministre et grand amateur des sacrifices de taureaux (la corrida c’est moral, culturel, une tradition), soucieux de la «&#0160;<em>détresse</em>&#0160;» des éleveurs dont les animaux sont tués par des loups, «&#0160;<em>sera à leurs côtés</em>&#0160;».&#0160; Pour lui, l&#39;expansion du loup et des prédateurs &quot;<em>pose un problème majeur</em>&quot;. Les décrets d&#39;application de la loi sur l&#39;avenir de l&#39;agriculture «&#0160;<em>doivent faciliter notamment le travail des préfets&#0160;</em>». Il souhaite «&#0160;<em>être efficace au niveau nationa</em>l&#0160;» et convaincre l&#39;Union européenne «&#0160;<em>d&#39;évoluer</em>&#0160;» sur ce point. Au moins les choses sont claires. Pour ceux qui en doutaient encore, le gouvernement socialiste a choisi son camp, celui des animaux qui votent et de l’anthropocentrisme traditionnel. <br /><br />La presse locale annonce une nouvelle attaque de loups à Salettes&#0160; «&#0160;<em>un troupeau d&#39;ovins a été victime d&#39;une nouvelle <strong>agression</strong></em>&#0160;», «&#0160;<em>le loup est le principal <strong>suspect</strong></em>&#0160;». Selon le préfet de la Haute-Loire, <em>il <strong>s&#39;agirait</strong> bien du loup</em>... <br /><br /><strong>Samedi 18 octobre</strong> : 3 lignes dans la presse : «&#0160;<em>Dans la nuit du 16 au 17&#0160;octobre puis vendredi en fin d&#39;après-midi, des moutons ont été pris pour cible sur la commune de Salettes. Contrairement à Pradelles, où le loup est incriminé, ces attaques seraient le fait de chiens errants.&#0160;</em>» La gendarmerie de Haute-Loire a mis la main sur plusieurs chiens errants, reconnus par des témoins.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Réactions polititiennes</strong></h2>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451957369e201bb079e548e970d-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"Laurent wauquiez\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201bb079e548e970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451957369e201bb079e548e970d-800wi\" style=\"margin: 0px 20px 5px 0px;\" title=\"Laurent wauquiez\" /></a>Les députés de Haute-Loire montent dans l’Arène&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Il faut autoriser l’abattage des loups</em>&#0160;», pas des chiens, vous pensez bien&#0160;! <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/wauquiez-laurent/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Laurent Wauquiez\">Laurent Wauquiez</a> (UMP) est à leur tête, tout fraichement élu «&#0160;<em>Président de l’ANEM, l&#39;Association Nationale des élus de montagne</em>&#0160;», il profite de l’aubaine pour se montrer et tient une conférence de presse «&#0160;<em>traîtant des dangers que représente le loup</em>&#0160;» en compagnie du député <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/vigier-jean-pierre/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Jean-Pierre Vigier\">Jean-Pierre Vigier</a> (Modem), de Jérome Veysseyre (FNSEA), d’Anthony Fayolle (JA) et de Laurent Duplomb (Chambre d&#39;Agriculture), ceux qui désirent “<em>l’extermination</em>” des animaux (sauvages) déviants.</p>\r\n<p>Faut dire qu’au congrès de l’ANEM, il a été longuement bassiné de propos anti-prédateurs, comme toujours : &quot; <em>Il n&#39;est pas possible de concilier l&#39;élevage et le loup ou les familles et le loup. Nous allons tout faire pour qu&#39;il ne passe pas en Haute-Loire. Après la réaction de Manuel Valls, j&#39;attends qu&#39;il passe des paroles aux actes avec par exemple un assouplissement de l&#39;abattage du loup. &#0160;Le loup va vite, il prolifère et il n&#39;est pas facile à chasser donc il faut commencer maintenant</em> &quot;.</p>\r\n<p>Pour Laurent Duplomb : &quot; <em>C&#39;était prévisible avec 1.600 brebis attaquées en Ardèche et une quarantaine d&#39;attaques en Lozère</em> &quot;.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Une bête question: Qu’ont fait la Chambre d’Agriculture et les syndicats agricoles pour anticiper le retour du loup en Haute-Loire? ... rien. C’est un chasseur qui a retrouvé les premières brebis tuées, pas l’éleveur. N’aurait-il pas fallu garder le troupeau ? Non, peut-être ? (C&#39;est du belge et ça veut dire oui!). Laurent Duplomb: &quot;<em>Il (NDLB:le loup) ne s&#39;amuse pas, il attaque pour manger. Sur les deux brebis noires retrouvées vers Pradelles, il ne restait pas 100 grammes de viande. Le loup est précis, il tue d&#39;une seule morsure. Il mort à la gorge et perce la carotide. Donc les bêtes qui ne sont pas tuées sur le coup ont l&#39;oesophage écrasé ou même la carotide qui ressort et ne peuvent vivre ainsi</em>&#0160;&quot;. Pourtant Laurent Duplomb sait dans sa cervelle ce qu’est la prédation: “<em>le loup tue pour manger</em>.” L’homme aussi d’ailleurs et sans plus de scrupule.</p>\r\n<p>Zoom d’ici<em><sub><span style=\"color: #0000ff;\">2</span></sub></em> relate : “<em>Tous trouvent aberrant que les personnes qui se battent pour protéger les animaux se battent également pour le loup qui est &quot; cruel dans ses attaques …, tout ça pour un animal qui n&#39;existait plus sur notre territoire.</em>” Pour Anthony Fayolle (JA) :&quot; <em>On ne s&#39;installe pas pour faire de l&#39;argent mais par passion. Ces éleveurs travaillent avec leur coeur</em>”, pas avec leur tête. Darwin doit se retourner dans sa tombe.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Anthropocentrisme</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Je vais encore devoir <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/09/de-darwin-a-levi-strauss-l-homme-et-la-diversite-en-danger.html%20\" target=\"_self\">citer</a> Pascal Picq:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>«&#0160;La tradition dualiste de l’Occident rejette sur la nature la responsabilité de tous les maux de l’humanité. Elle s’en remet à Dieu ou à tout autre transcendance pour fonder une éthique aussi peu salvatrice qu’irresponsable.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Rien de nouveau sous le soleil depuis l’invention des grandes civilisations et encore moins dans le monde occidental. De la Cité de Dieu aux mégapoles de demain, combien sont rares les philosophes, les missionnaires et les scientifiques qui, enrichis de la connaissance des autres peuples et de la nature, ont tenté, en vain jusqu’ici, d’empêcher l’humanité de sombrer dans le gouffre de l’anthropocentrisme.

</p>\r\n<p>La nature n’est ni bonne, ni mauvaise, elle est amorale, c’est tout. La théorie de l’évolution apporte un autre regard sur cette question. Peut-on dire que la nature a été bonne parce qu’elle a permis l’apparition de l’homme? Ce serait stupide, même si nous pouvons nous en féliciter à bon compte, puisque l’évolution n’a pas de but. Peut-on accuser la nature d’être mauvaise parce que des catastrophes naturelles frappent les hommes? Ce serait absurde : si on dit que la nature est mauvaise en ce sens, il faut en toute logique la louer aussi pour toutes les catastrophes qui ont jalonné l’évolution de la vie jusqu’à l’apparition de l’homme et donc admettre qu’elle est bonne. »</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p><strong>Mardi 21 octobre</strong> : Denis Labbé, le préfèt de Haute-Loire, invite les représentants du monde agricole pour présenter la mise en place du Plan Loup en Haute-Loire : mesure d&#39;informations, protection, défense et éventuellement prélévement. Malgré leurs gesticulations, éleveurs et députés sont déçus: LE loup qui pullule tout seul ne sera pas abattu, exterminé, pas encore. Il faudra attendre d&#39;autres délits et d&#39;autres pêtages de plombs.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Cour de récré</strong></h2>\r\n<p>C’en est trop pour <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/fialip-yannick/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Yannick Fialip\">Yannick Fialip</a>, le Président de la FDSEA : Il pête un cable, pousse sa chaise et s’en va : “<em>Nous ne participerons plus au débat. Le plan Loup n&#39;est pas du tout adapté. La procédure est très longue. On demande l&#39;abattage immédiatement</em> &quot;, sinon il arrête de respirer avant de menacer : &quot; <em>Ce qu&#39;on va faire ? On verra après la prochaine attaque</em>&#0160;&quot;.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Cours de droit</strong></h2>\r\n<p>La loi, ça semble compliqué pour certains, le préfèt doit l’expliquer : &quot; <em>Même si je voulais, je ne pourrais pas prendre un arrêté illégal. C&#39;est comme si, en Haute-Loire sur le réseau routier national, je décidais de changer la limitation de vitesse de 90 à 120 ou 130 km/h. Je ne peux pas.&#0160; (...) Il y a une évolution dans la manière dont la présence du loup est appréciée. Avant, tout le monde s&#39;émerveillait de le voir. Aujourd&#39;hui, il est présent dans tout l&#39;Est du pays. Si la population augmente, il est possible que la position du gouvernement et du législateur évolue. (...) La question du loup va surtout se poser au printemps. Là, avec le temps, les bêtes vont être de moins en moins en extérieur, c&#39;est peut-être l&#39;occasion de faire les démarches pour être protégé au printemp</em>s &quot;. <br /><br />Une fois de plus, en Haute-Loire comme ailleurs, les responsables politiques et syndicaux font de la prévision… <em>a posteriori</em>, une fois que le loup est là. “<em>Gouverner c’est prévoir</em>” disait Emile de Girardin<br /><br />Et ce qui est prévu, c’est l’affarouchement : “<em>Une fois l&#39;arrêté en vigueur, les agriculteurs autorisés et détenteurs d&#39;un permis de chasse pourront tirer sur le loup mais avec des plombs qui ne peuvent pas le tuer. Les zones concernées par cette mesure restent encore à déterminer. Ce stade est une étape obligatoire avant de pouvoir autoriser les tirs de défense (en cas d&#39;attaque) ou les tirs de prélévement (sous forme de battues).</em>”<br /><br />Et s’il n’y a qu’un seul loup en Haute-Loire, les éleveurs auront ce qu’ils désirent : l’extermination du loup, en attendant le suivant, sans rien prévoir bien sûr, pourquoi prévoir et investir s’il suffit d’attendre et de toucher.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Débordements</strong></h2>\r\n<p><strong>Lundi 20 octobre :</strong> Des débordements émaillent la manifestation des éleveurs contre le loup au Puy-en-Velay. La porte de la préfecture de Haute-Loire a été forcée et deux policiers qui l&#39;a gardaient ont été légèrement blessés. L&#39;un des deux a été évacué aux urgences du centre hospitalier Émile-Roux. Une vingtaine de brebis ont été introduites dans la cour de la préfecture. Pour le secrétaire général de la préfécture, Clément Rouchouse ces <em>« débordements de quelques personnes ne sont pas acceptables. Ils ont forcé la porte d&#39;entrée de la préfecture. Ce n&#39;est pas de cette façon qu&#39;on lance des discussions sur des actions qui vont d&#39;ailleurs être fortes, en terme de protection des troupeaux »</em>.</p>\r\n<p>Une nouvelle réunion était prévue le mardi 21 octobre en préfecture en présence de l&#39;ensemble du monde agricole. Le directeur de la DDT (Direction Départementale des Territoires), Bruno Locqueville prévient celles et ceux avides de vengeances expéditives : <em>« Le loup est une espèce protégée, sa chasse n&#39;est pas libre »</em>. Et tirer sur le loup sans autorisation est une infraction pénale pouvant être punie <em>« jusqu&#39;à 150 000 € amende et sept ans de prison »</em>.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><iframe allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"270\" src=\"//www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x28akeo\" width=\"480\"></iframe></p>\r\n<h2>&#0160;</h2>\r\n<h2><strong>Réactions politiques
</strong></h2>\r\n<p><strong>Mercredi 22 octobre</strong> : Le niveau &quot;1&quot; du plan loup est activé par le préfet: il n&#39;autorise pas l&#39;abattage du loup, mais prévoit des aides financières pour les éleveurs. <br /><br /><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/roucan-lionel/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Lionel Roucan\"><strong>Lionel Roucan</strong></a>, Vice-Président au Conseil régional d’Auvergne et Président de l’association de préfiguration du Parc Naturel Régional des Sources et Gorges du Haut-Allier réagit<sub><strong><span style=\"color: #0000ff;\">3</span></strong></sub>: 
</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>&quot;Le préfet rappelle la loi et conforte une attitude républicaine. Et pourtant, nous aurons tout entendu en quelques jours : incompatibilité avec l’homme, avec l’élevage, demande de son éradication complète et invitation à prendre les armes, récompense de 1.000 € à celui qui l’abattra. Le loup est au centre de toutes les gesticulations et manipulations politiques et syndicales en Haute-Loire. <br /><br />Franchement, jusqu’où iront certains dans la démagogie, le populisme, l’irresponsabilité et la surenchère en prenant part et en soutenant des rassemblements, des comportements, et des propos haineux, guerriers, arriérés qui ramènent l’homme a son niveau le plus primitif ? <br /><br />Jusqu’où iront certains dans la bêtise, la désinformation et la manipulation lorsqu’ils insinuent que le projet de Parc Naturel Régional des Sources et Gorges du Haut-Allier est un projet de bobo parisien qui favorise le retour du loup en Haute-Loire ? <br /><br />Faut-il rappeler que le projet de PNR du Haut-Allier est un projet du territoire ? Faut-il rappeler, que la chambre d’agriculture de Haute-Loire et les acteurs du monde agricole sont associés depuis le début à la construction de ce projet ambitieux pour l’aménagement et le développement durable de ce territoire ? Faut-il rappeler que le Parc n’a pas pour vocation de favoriser le retour du loup pas plus que de l’exterminer ? Faut-il enfin rappeler que la philosophie du PNR, n’est pas du tout d’opposer les hommes entre eux d’une part, les hommes et la nature d’autre part, ou encore les activités économiques avec la protection de l’environnement ou du bien-être social ? <br /><br />Ainsi, l’attitude de certains élus altiligériens est consternante, en particulier celle de ceux qui ont cru bon de venir soutenir des manifestations ponctuées par des dégradations de biens publics et des slogans de haine. Des élus beaucoup moins présents et loquaces d’ailleurs lorsque il s’agit de réagir et de prendre des mesures face aux attaques de troupeaux (beaucoup plus nombreuses) par des chiens errants. <br /><br />Des élus beaucoup moins investis lorsqu’il s’agit de participer à la construction d’un projet d’avenir, le PNR des Sources et Gorges du Haut Allier, qui aura suscité depuis le début du projet plus de 300 réunions citoyennes sur le territoire et mobilisés de nombreux élus de Haute-Loire pour inscrire leurs projets dans la charte du PNR ou accueillir le siège du Parc. <br /><br />Pour finir, hier, Mr le préfet a tenu son rôle de garant de la loi, cette loi qui doit protéger les citoyens, l’intérêt collectif et je ne peux que l’en féliciter&quot;.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p><strong>Jeudi 23 octobre</strong>&#0160;: C’est au tour des écologistes de réagir&#0160;: Europe écologie les Verts salue une décision &quot;<em>sage, proportionnée et conforme à la loi</em>”:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>“Le préfet a su raison garder, contrairement à certains élus de Haute-Loire, en particulier Messieurs Vigier et Wauquiez qui ont préféré donner dans la démagogie et l’opportunisme. L’appel à la violence et l’huile jetée sur le feu par ces élus sont attristants.</p>\r\n<p>Sachons tous ensemble rester responsables sur des sujets sensibles comme celui-ci. Sachons également aborder la question et les enjeux de la prédation avec objectivité, calme&#0160; et discernement : chaque année, on évalue à au moins 100.000 le nombre de moutons tués par des chiens errants quand 200.000 morsures sur les humains sont enregistrées. Personne, ni des représentants de la profession agricole, ni des députés, ne propose pour autant l&#39;éradication des chiens&#0160;!</p>\r\n<p>Il y a quelques jours seulement une nouvelle attaque meurtrière de chiens errants dans notre département n’a provoqué aucun émoi. Les maladies, les chutes dans les rochers, la foudre sont bien plus ravageurs pour les troupeaux que les loups. A titre d’exemple, l’institut de l’élevage a également montré que les principales causes de mortalité chez les agneaux sevrés étaient l’entérotoxémie et les maladies respiratoires à plus de 80%. C’est donc bien sur la prévention et le traitement des maladies des ovins qu’il faut se concentrer avant toute chose, dans l’intérêt des bêtes et des éleveurs. Enfin le loup est, faut-il le rappeler, une espèce protégée et son abattage constitue un délit.&quot;</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Et pourtant non. En France, le loup n’est plus une espèce protégée que sur le papier. Le lobby agricole va veiller à ce que le plafond de 36 loups à abattre ne soit pas un plafond mais un objectif. Le braconnage d’un loup n’est pas sanctionné. Tout est fait au contraire pour l’encourager comme <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/06/loups-regler-d-abord-la-question-du-braconnage.html\" target=\"_self\">l’explique Eric Posak</a> :&#0160;</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>“L’assouplissement et la facilitation des tirs de prélèvements doit s’accompagner d’une «&#0160;<em>maîtrise du braconnage</em>&#0160;». Or, à l’heure actuelle, l’article 2 de l’arrêté du 15 mai 2013 prévoit que «&#0160;<em>le maximum annuel sera diminué du nombre des animaux ayant fait l’objet d’un acte de destruction volontaire</em>&#0160;».<br /><br />Sur le plan des principes, cette mesure est très insuffisante puisqu’on pourrait en déduire qu’un loup braconné vaut aussi bien qu’un loup tué «&#0160;<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">régulièrement</span>&#0160;», ce qui, loin d’être une sanction, constitue une incitation au braconnage en déculpabilisant moralement son auteur dès lors que le plafond réglementaire de prélèvement n’est officiellement atteint.<br /><br />Fixé à une époque où le nombre de tir de prélèvement était de 6 loups, la prétendue «&#0160;<em>sanction</em>&#0160;» devient totalement dérisoire lorsque le plafond est porté à 36 loups<br /><br />En d’autres termes, par l’effet combiné de l’article 2 précité de l’arrêté du 15 mai 2013 et de l’augmentation du nombre de loups prélevés, la condamnation «&#0160;<em>ferme</em>&#0160;» du braconnage prévue par le plan national d’action devient lettre morte.

</p>\r\n<p>Les sanctions pénales encourues sont également peu dissuasives en raison d’une part des peines pénales dérisoires effectivement prononcées par les tribunaux français et d’autre part de la difficulté d’identification des auteurs de ces actes de braconnage.

Enfin, la réduction des effectifs des gardes de l’ONCFS entraîne nécessairement une surveillance et un contrôle statistiquement plus faible, ce qui facilite et encourage les actes de braconnage.

Selon l’éleveur de Saint-Etienne-du-Vigan,&#0160; «&#0160;<em>15 brebis ont été attaquées, toutes au niveau de la gorge, sous le cou</em>&#0160;», trois jours plus tôt. Deux ont été tuées directement par l&#39;animal, puis mangées.<br /><br /><strong>Jeudi 16 octobre</strong>&#0160;: La préfecture de Haute-Loire annonce que la piste du loup était privilégiée après l&#39;attaque des brebis à Pradelles. &quot;<em>Il existe de fortes présomptions pour que le loup, dont la présence est avérée dans les départements voisins de l&#39;Ardèche et de la Lozère, soit responsable de cette attaque</em>&quot;. La préfecture attend les conclusions de l&#39;expertise officielle. le Préfet indique qu&#39;il réunira les professionnels agricoles et les services de l&#39;Etat concernés dès la semaine prochaine, avant d&#39;installer un comité départemental loup étendu à l&#39;ensemble des parties prenantes.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Réactions agricoles immédiates</strong></h2>\r\n<p>De son côté, sans attendre les conclusions de l’expertise, la FDSEA 43 et les Jeunes Agriculteurs de la Haute-Loire “<em>comptent demander un plan d&#39;éradication au préfet</em>” et indiquent qu&#39;ils organiseront le 20 octobre une manifestation d&#39;opposition au loup devant la préfecture du Puy-en-Velay.</p>\r\n<p>Un fois de plus les agriculteurs nient le côté naturel de la prédation et l’amoralité de la nature, préférant opposer l’acte de prédation (qui est pour eux immorale, mauvaise) aux revendications des biocentristes (des extrémistes pleins de contradictions) qui demandent que l’homme, en responsable de ses choix éthiques et de ses actions, soit respectueux des animaux dans ses pratiques d’élevage (autant que faire se peut).</p>\r\n<p>“<em>Imaginez seulement la souffrance de ces brebis… à l’heure où les agriculteurs se voient imposer des normes et une réglementation draconiennes au nom du bien-être animal, où le Parlement veut modifier le statut de l’animal dans le code civil, pour en faire un « être doué de sensibilité », quelle est la cohérence avec le fait de laisser ce prédateur pulluler et dévorer à loisir les troupeaux ? Imaginez seulement la souffrance de cet éleveur, qui voit son travail, sa passion, détruits en une seule nuit !</em>”</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Sacrifie rituel</strong></h2>\r\n<p>Une passion somme toute vénale, puisque cette “<em>souffrance</em>” se dissout dans le sentiment du devoir accompli quand l’éleveur porte ses bêtes à l’abattoir et les laisse se faire saigner “<em>à vif</em>”, sans être étourdies, un échange de leurs vies contre leur prix, en laissant les petites mains s’occuper de la basse besogne selon les pratiques rituelles des clients.</p>\r\n<p>Ce jour de mort pour les bêtes est normalement le jour de la &quot;<em>récolte&quot;,</em> de l’aboutissement du travail de l’éleveur, quoi que maintenant, ce jour est plutôt celui du paiement des primes de la PAC qui représentent 70% de la “récolte”.&#0160; Le vocabulaire utilisé est significatif : “<em>Nous refusons que nos animaux soient sacrifiés… et demandons purement et simplement l’extermination du loup sur notre territoire. Nous exigeons que l’abattage du loup soit autorisé immédiatement en Haute-Loire.</em>”</p>\r\n<p>Les mots <em>nuisibles</em>, <em>pulluler</em> et <em>éradication</em> se retrouvent souvent dans la même phrase, ils sont utilisés pour le sauvage, l&#39;incontrôlable, la nature. Le loup ne <em>pullule</em> pourtant pas en Haute-Loire, s&#39;il revient et reconquiert un ancien territoire, ils ne sont pas très nombreux.</p>\r\n<p>Les responsables de la FNSEA ne se rendent même pas compte de leurs propres contradictions. En effet, si les éleveurs refusent et jugent anormales les normes “<em>imposées</em>” et&#0160; “<em>draconniennes</em>” au nom du bien-être animal, pourquoi veulent-ils les imposer au loup, qui devrait adopter un comportement “<em>moral</em>”, se comporter en agneau en quelques sortes. La nature n’est ni bonne (morale), ni méchante (imorale), elle est amorale. Les animaux se moquent des préceptes moraux humains. Le loup mange, vit socialement en petit groupe, défend son territoire, s&#39;y déplace et s&#39;y reproduit : les besoins fondamentaux de la Pyramide de Maslow.</p>\r\n<p>L’éleveur (Aurélien Teyssier) a déclaré :“<em>Je n&#39;étais pas contre le loup avant cette attaque, mais maintenant c&#39;est différent</em>”.&#0160; Je ne suis pas, mais...</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/duplomb-laurent/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Laurent Duplomb\">Laurent Duplomb</a>, président de la Chambre d&#39;agriculture reprend lui des arguments définitifs maintes fois entendus :</p>\r\n<p>«&#0160;<em>Si nos ancêtres ont éradiqué le loup c&#39;est qu&#39;il était incompatible avec l&#39;activité humaine. C&#39;est comme pour les nitrates, le dogme écologique est partout. Il n&#39;y a que dans les livres pour enfants que le loup est dangereux. L&#39;attaque de ce week-end est considérée comme la première du loup en Haute-Loire, mais il y en a eu d&#39;autres, simplement elles ont été attribuées à des chiens errants. Dans les départements où le loup est largement présent, ce n&#39;est pas que les ovins qu&#39;il attaque, c&#39;est aussi les veaux, les vaches, les chevaux... et moi, personnellement, je suis persuadé qu&#39;un jour il s&#39;attaquera aux hommes.&#0160;» Il a rendez-vous en préfecture le 21 octobre et compte également demander, officiellement, « l’éradication du loup en Haute-Loire <em>»</em></em>.</p>\r\n<p><em>&quot;Si nos ancêtres...&quot; </em>:<em>&#0160;</em>le poids de la tradition et de l&#39;immobilisme, cette chose si facile à revendiquer quand on a décidé de ne pas réfléchir pour ne pas avoir à changer de comportement, ne pas sortir de son confort et de son égoïsme, le grand sac de la tradition où l&#39;on retrouve en vrac l&#39;esclavage, la corrida, la chasse-à-courre, le bûcher des sorcières, la peine de mort, l&#39;excision et d&#39;autres joyeusetés traditionnelles<em>. </em>Nos ancètres ont réfléchi pour nous: y a plus qu&#39;à faire pareil...</p>\r\n<p><strong>Vendredi 17 octobre</strong> :&#0160; Congrès de l&#39;Association nationale des élus de la montagne, l&#39;ANEM, à Chambéry. <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/valls-manuel/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Manuel Valls\">Manuel Valls</a>, premier ministre et grand amateur des sacrifices de taureaux (la corrida c’est moral, culturel, une tradition), soucieux de la «&#0160;<em>détresse</em>&#0160;» des éleveurs dont les animaux sont tués par des loups, «&#0160;<em>sera à leurs côtés</em>&#0160;».&#0160; Pour lui, l&#39;expansion du loup et des prédateurs &quot;<em>pose un problème majeur</em>&quot;. Les décrets d&#39;application de la loi sur l&#39;avenir de l&#39;agriculture «&#0160;<em>doivent faciliter notamment le travail des préfets&#0160;</em>». Il souhaite «&#0160;<em>être efficace au niveau nationa</em>l&#0160;» et convaincre l&#39;Union européenne «&#0160;<em>d&#39;évoluer</em>&#0160;» sur ce point. Au moins les choses sont claires. Pour ceux qui en doutaient encore, le gouvernement socialiste a choisi son camp, celui des animaux qui votent et de l’anthropocentrisme traditionnel. <br /><br />La presse locale annonce une nouvelle attaque de loups à Salettes&#0160; «&#0160;<em>un troupeau d&#39;ovins a été victime d&#39;une nouvelle <strong>agression</strong></em>&#0160;», «&#0160;<em>le loup est le principal <strong>suspect</strong></em>&#0160;».

C’est un chasseur qui a retrouvé les premières brebis tuées, pas l’éleveur. N’aurait-il pas fallu garder le troupeau ? Non, peut-être ? (C&#39;est du belge et ça veut dire oui!). Laurent Duplomb: &quot;<em>Il (NDLB:le loup) ne s&#39;amuse pas, il attaque pour manger. Sur les deux brebis noires retrouvées vers Pradelles, il ne restait pas 100 grammes de viande. Le loup est précis, il tue d&#39;une seule morsure. Il mort à la gorge et perce la carotide. Donc les bêtes qui ne sont pas tuées sur le coup ont l&#39;oesophage écrasé ou même la carotide qui ressort et ne peuvent vivre ainsi</em>&#0160;&quot;.

De la Cité de Dieu aux mégapoles de demain, combien sont rares les philosophes, les missionnaires et les scientifiques qui, enrichis de la connaissance des autres peuples et de la nature, ont tenté, en vain jusqu’ici, d’empêcher l’humanité de sombrer dans le gouffre de l’anthropocentrisme.

</p>\r\n<p>La nature n’est ni bonne, ni mauvaise, elle est amorale, c’est tout. La théorie de l’évolution apporte un autre regard sur cette question. Peut-on dire que la nature a été bonne parce qu’elle a permis l’apparition de l’homme? Ce serait stupide, même si nous pouvons nous en féliciter à bon compte, puisque l’évolution n’a pas de but. Peut-on accuser la nature d’être mauvaise parce que des catastrophes naturelles frappent les hommes? Ce serait absurde : si on dit que la nature est mauvaise en ce sens, il faut en toute logique la louer aussi pour toutes les catastrophes qui ont jalonné l’évolution de la vie jusqu’à l’apparition de l’homme et donc admettre qu’elle est bonne. »</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p><strong>Mardi 21 octobre</strong> : Denis Labbé, le préfèt de Haute-Loire, invite les représentants du monde agricole pour présenter la mise en place du Plan Loup en Haute-Loire : mesure d&#39;informations, protection, défense et éventuellement prélévement. Malgré leurs gesticulations, éleveurs et députés sont déçus: LE loup qui pullule tout seul ne sera pas abattu, exterminé, pas encore. Il faudra attendre d&#39;autres délits et d&#39;autres pêtages de plombs.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Cour de récré</strong></h2>\r\n<p>C’en est trop pour <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/fialip-yannick/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Yannick Fialip\">Yannick Fialip</a>, le Président de la FDSEA : Il pête un cable, pousse sa chaise et s’en va : “<em>Nous ne participerons plus au débat. Le plan Loup n&#39;est pas du tout adapté. La procédure est très longue. On demande l&#39;abattage immédiatement</em> &quot;, sinon il arrête de respirer avant de menacer : &quot; <em>Ce qu&#39;on va faire ? On verra après la prochaine attaque</em>&#0160;&quot;.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Cours de droit</strong></h2>\r\n<p>La loi, ça semble compliqué pour certains, le préfèt doit l’expliquer : &quot; <em>Même si je voulais, je ne pourrais pas prendre un arrêté illégal. C&#39;est comme si, en Haute-Loire sur le réseau routier national, je décidais de changer la limitation de vitesse de 90 à 120 ou 130 km/h. Je ne peux pas.&#0160; (...) Il y a une évolution dans la manière dont la présence du loup est appréciée. Avant, tout le monde s&#39;émerveillait de le voir. Aujourd&#39;hui, il est présent dans tout l&#39;Est du pays. Si la population augmente, il est possible que la position du gouvernement et du législateur évolue. (...) La question du loup va surtout se poser au printemps. Là, avec le temps, les bêtes vont être de moins en moins en extérieur, c&#39;est peut-être l&#39;occasion de faire les démarches pour être protégé au printemp</em>s &quot;. <br /><br />Une fois de plus, en Haute-Loire comme ailleurs, les responsables politiques et syndicaux font de la prévision… <em>a posteriori</em>, une fois que le loup est là. “<em>Gouverner c’est prévoir</em>” disait Emile de Girardin<br /><br />Et ce qui est prévu, c’est l’affarouchement : “<em>Une fois l&#39;arrêté en vigueur, les agriculteurs autorisés et détenteurs d&#39;un permis de chasse pourront tirer sur le loup mais avec des plombs qui ne peuvent pas le tuer. Les zones concernées par cette mesure restent encore à déterminer. Ce stade est une étape obligatoire avant de pouvoir autoriser les tirs de défense (en cas d&#39;attaque) ou les tirs de prélévement (sous forme de battues).</em>”<br /><br />Et s’il n’y a qu’un seul loup en Haute-Loire, les éleveurs auront ce qu’ils désirent : l’extermination du loup, en attendant le suivant, sans rien prévoir bien sûr, pourquoi prévoir et investir s’il suffit d’attendre et de toucher.</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Débordements</strong></h2>\r\n<p><strong>Lundi 20 octobre :</strong> Des débordements émaillent la manifestation des éleveurs contre le loup au Puy-en-Velay. La porte de la préfecture de Haute-Loire a été forcée et deux policiers qui l&#39;a gardaient ont été légèrement blessés. L&#39;un des deux a été évacué aux urgences du centre hospitalier Émile-Roux. Une vingtaine de brebis ont été introduites dans la cour de la préfecture. Pour le secrétaire général de la préfécture, Clément Rouchouse ces <em>« débordements de quelques personnes ne sont pas acceptables. Ils ont forcé la porte d&#39;entrée de la préfecture. Ce n&#39;est pas de cette façon qu&#39;on lance des discussions sur des actions qui vont d&#39;ailleurs être fortes, en terme de protection des troupeaux »</em>.</p>\r\n<p>Une nouvelle réunion était prévue le mardi 21 octobre en préfecture en présence de l&#39;ensemble du monde agricole. Le directeur de la DDT (Direction Départementale des Territoires), Bruno Locqueville prévient celles et ceux avides de vengeances expéditives : <em>« Le loup est une espèce protégée, sa chasse n&#39;est pas libre »</em>. Et tirer sur le loup sans autorisation est une infraction pénale pouvant être punie <em>« jusqu&#39;à 150 000 € amende et sept ans de prison »</em>.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><iframe allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"270\" src=\"//www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x28akeo\" width=\"480\"></iframe></p>\r\n<h2>&#0160;</h2>\r\n<h2><strong>Réactions politiques
</strong></h2>\r\n<p><strong>Mercredi 22 octobre</strong> : Le niveau &quot;1&quot; du plan loup est activé par le préfet: il n&#39;autorise pas l&#39;abattage du loup, mais prévoit des aides financières pour les éleveurs. <br /><br /><a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/roucan-lionel/\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Lionel Roucan\"><strong>Lionel Roucan</strong></a>, Vice-Président au Conseil régional d’Auvergne et Président de l’association de préfiguration du Parc Naturel Régional des Sources et Gorges du Haut-Allier réagit<sub><strong><span style=\"color: #0000ff;\">3</span></strong></sub>: 
</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>&quot;Le préfet rappelle la loi et conforte une attitude républicaine. Et pourtant, nous aurons tout entendu en quelques jours : incompatibilité avec l’homme, avec l’élevage, demande de son éradication complète et invitation à prendre les armes, récompense de 1.000 € à celui qui l’abattra. Le loup est au centre de toutes les gesticulations et manipulations politiques et syndicales en Haute-Loire. <br /><br />Franchement, jusqu’où iront certains dans la démagogie, le populisme, l’irresponsabilité et la surenchère en prenant part et en soutenant des rassemblements, des comportements, et des propos haineux, guerriers, arriérés qui ramènent l’homme a son niveau le plus primitif ? <br /><br />Jusqu’où iront certains dans la bêtise, la désinformation et la manipulation lorsqu’ils insinuent que le projet de Parc Naturel Régional des Sources et Gorges du Haut-Allier est un projet de bobo parisien qui favorise le retour du loup en Haute-Loire ? <br /><br />Faut-il rappeler que le projet de PNR du Haut-Allier est un projet du territoire ? Faut-il rappeler, que la chambre d’agriculture de Haute-Loire et les acteurs du monde agricole sont associés depuis le début à la construction de ce projet ambitieux pour l’aménagement et le développement durable de ce territoire ? Faut-il rappeler que le Parc n’a pas pour vocation de favoriser le retour du loup pas plus que de l’exterminer ? Faut-il enfin rappeler que la philosophie du PNR, n’est pas du tout d’opposer les hommes entre eux d’une part, les hommes et la nature d’autre part, ou encore les activités économiques avec la protection de l’environnement ou du bien-être social ? <br /><br />Ainsi, l’attitude de certains élus altiligériens est consternante, en particulier celle de ceux qui ont cru bon de venir soutenir des manifestations ponctuées par des dégradations de biens publics et des slogans de haine. Des élus beaucoup moins présents et loquaces d’ailleurs lorsque il s’agit de réagir et de prendre des mesures face aux attaques de troupeaux (beaucoup plus nombreuses) par des chiens errants. <br /><br />Des élus beaucoup moins investis lorsqu’il s’agit de participer à la construction d’un projet d’avenir, le PNR des Sources et Gorges du Haut Allier, qui aura suscité depuis le début du projet plus de 300 réunions citoyennes sur le territoire et mobilisés de nombreux élus de Haute-Loire pour inscrire leurs projets dans la charte du PNR ou accueillir le siège du Parc. <br /><br />Pour finir, hier, Mr le préfet a tenu son rôle de garant de la loi, cette loi qui doit protéger les citoyens, l’intérêt collectif et je ne peux que l’en féliciter&quot;.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p><strong>Jeudi 23 octobre</strong>&#0160;: C’est au tour des écologistes de réagir&#0160;: Europe écologie les Verts salue une décision &quot;<em>sage, proportionnée et conforme à la loi</em>”:</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>“Le préfet a su raison garder, contrairement à certains élus de Haute-Loire, en particulier Messieurs Vigier et Wauquiez qui ont préféré donner dans la démagogie et l’opportunisme. L’appel à la violence et l’huile jetée sur le feu par ces élus sont attristants.</p>\r\n<p>Sachons tous ensemble rester responsables sur des sujets sensibles comme celui-ci. Sachons également aborder la question et les enjeux de la prédation avec objectivité, calme&#0160; et discernement : chaque année, on évalue à au moins 100.000 le nombre de moutons tués par des chiens errants quand 200.000 morsures sur les humains sont enregistrées. Personne, ni des représentants de la profession agricole, ni des députés, ne propose pour autant l&#39;éradication des chiens&#0160;!</p>\r\n<p>Il y a quelques jours seulement une nouvelle attaque meurtrière de chiens errants dans notre département n’a provoqué aucun émoi. Les maladies, les chutes dans les rochers, la foudre sont bien plus ravageurs pour les troupeaux que les loups. A titre d’exemple, l’institut de l’élevage a également montré que les principales causes de mortalité chez les agneaux sevrés étaient l’entérotoxémie et les maladies respiratoires à plus de 80%. C’est donc bien sur la prévention et le traitement des maladies des ovins qu’il faut se concentrer avant toute chose, dans l’intérêt des bêtes et des éleveurs. Enfin le loup est, faut-il le rappeler, une espèce protégée et son abattage constitue un délit.&quot;</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Et pourtant non. En France, le loup n’est plus une espèce protégée que sur le papier. Le lobby agricole va veiller à ce que le plafond de 36 loups à abattre ne soit pas un plafond mais un objectif. Le braconnage d’un loup n’est pas sanctionné. Tout est fait au contraire pour l’encourager comme <a href=\"http://www.buvettedesalpages.be/2014/06/loups-regler-d-abord-la-question-du-braconnage.html\" target=\"_self\">l’explique Eric Posak</a> :&#0160;</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>“L’assouplissement et la facilitation des tirs de prélèvements doit s’accompagner d’une «&#0160;<em>maîtrise du braconnage</em>&#0160;». Or, à l’heure actuelle, l’article 2 de l’arrêté du 15 mai 2013 prévoit que «&#0160;<em>le maximum annuel sera diminué du nombre des animaux ayant fait l’objet d’un acte de destruction volontaire</em>&#0160;».<br /><br />Sur le plan des principes, cette mesure est très insuffisante puisqu’on pourrait en déduire qu’un loup braconné vaut aussi bien qu’un loup tué «&#0160;<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">régulièrement</span>&#0160;», ce qui, loin d’être une sanction, constitue une incitation au braconnage en déculpabilisant moralement son auteur dès lors que le plafond réglementaire de prélèvement n’est officiellement atteint.<br /><br />Fixé à une époque où le nombre de tir de prélèvement était de 6 loups, la prétendue «&#0160;<em>sanction</em>&#0160;» devient totalement dérisoire lorsque le plafond est porté à 36 loups<br /><br />En d’autres termes, par l’effet combiné de l’article 2 précité de l’arrêté du 15 mai 2013 et de l’augmentation du nombre de loups prélevés, la condamnation «&#0160;<em>ferme</em>&#0160;» du braconnage prévue par le plan national d’action devient lettre morte.

</p>\r\n<p>Les sanctions pénales encourues sont également peu dissuasives en raison d’une part des peines pénales dérisoires effectivement prononcées par les tribunaux français et d’autre part de la difficulté d’identification des auteurs de ces actes de braconnage.

Enfin, la réduction des effectifs des gardes de l’ONCFS entraîne nécessairement une surveillance et un contrôle statistiquement plus faible, ce qui facilite et encourage les actes de braconnage.

Her har jeg forsøgt at svare på de fleste&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hvorfor fejre Halloween?</strong></p>\r\n<p>31. oktober er det Halloween, der stadigt af nogen fejres under det gamle danske navn Alllehelgensaften.</p>\r\n<p>Halloween har oldgamle rødder, men fejres i en meget moderne udgave importeret direkte fra USA&#39;s store kulturelle smeltedigel.&#0160; Om det kan man mene meget, men faktum er at næsten alle danske traditioner er importeret fra udlandet på et eller andet tidspunkt og i disse år er det altså Halloween, der år for år vokser sig større i Danmark.</p>\r\n<p>Traditioner vokser og overlever kun hvis de giver os noget og her må man sige at Halloween rummer elementer som vi ikke finder i nogen anden dansk tradition. Halloween giver os muligheden for at lege med alt det som ellers kan få et barnehjerte til at fryse og det er flere gange sket til vores Halloween fester at børn, der var bange for edderkopper da de kom er gået hjem med en plastikedderkop på hånden.</p>\r\n<p>Halloween er også en fest hvor både børn og voksne får lov til at være grimme og støvet gerne må ligge tommeltykt i hjørnerne. På den måde er Halloween et lille oprør mod alt det pæne og den slags små oprør har mennesker til alle tider haft behov for. &#0160;I tidligere tider var den danske fasterlavnsfest fx et sådan oprør, mens fastelavn i dag mest handler om nuttede udklædninger og lækre fasterlavnsboller. Vi har altså brug for en ny legeplads og her passer Halloween perfekt.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Halloween historie</strong></p>\r\n<p>Halloween har sine dybeste rødder i Kelternes Samhain fest, der markerede vinterens begyndelse og afslutningen på sommeren. Kelterne regnede kun med to årstider og med Samhain fejrede man på en gang høstfest og nytår. Denne nytårsnat var sløret mellem de levende og de døde tyndt og folk frygtede ånderne, der kunne komme på besøg i de levendes verden. Som en slags camouflage klædte man sig ud som spøgelser og onde ånder og gik i procession ud af byen for at lokke de onde ånder væk. Imens tændte druiderne store beskyttende bål og alle i landsbyen startede det nye år med en ny ild i ildstedet.</p>\r\n<p>I middelalderen forsøgte den katolske kirke at blive af med Samhain festen og erstatte den med en kristen tradition kaldet Hallowmas. 1. november blev ca. 610 til Allehelgens dag til minde om alle de helgener der ikke havde egen helgendag og 31. Oktober derved til allehelgensaften. 2. November blev&#0160; i 998 gjort til alle sjæles dag hvor man gennem bøn kunne hjælpe de døde i skærsilden. Som det så ofte er sket&#0160; førte forsøget på at kristne de hedenske skikke til en sammensmeltning af de to og snart gik folk udklædte fra hus til hus i noget der udviklede sig til en tidlig form for ”trick or treat”.</p>\r\n<p>Immigranter til USA medbragte deres forskellige udgaver af Halloween festen og gradvis smeltede de sammen til den fejring vi kender i dag og som nu er ved at vinde indpas i Danmark. Den amerikanske Halloween er rig på plastik og slik, men også mere positivt på kreativitet , leg og hygge. Man skære græskar, leger lege og klæder sig ud og den amerikanske halloween fest er nok så meget en efterårsfest hvor især efterårsløvet og æblerne har en stor plads.</p>\r\n<p>Det er dén hyggelige kreative efterårsfest med uhyggelige undertoner jeg gerne byder velkommen i Danmark. For mig er det vigtigt at Halloween ikke bare bliver endnu en anledning til at købe sig fattig i plastik og udklædning og derfor siger jeg nej til alle de tilbud om at reklamerer for Halloween arrangementer og&#0160; Halloween butikker, der havner i min postkasse. Kik i gemmerne og lav noget selv!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://badut.typepad.com/.a/6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Historien bag Halloween\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://badut.typepad.com/.a/6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d-800wi\" title=\"Historien bag Halloween\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><strong>Halloween i Danmark&#0160;</strong></p>\r\n<p>I Danmark har man aldrig fejret Samhain. Den kristne fejring af allehelgensdag og alle sjæles dag har derimod haft en stor betydning.&#0160;I forbindelse med reformationen valgte man at slå de to dage sammen og gøre 1 november til allehelgensdag. Som det er tradition med mange højtider i Danmark fejres allehelgensdag aftenen før (altså den 31 oktober) som Allehelgensaften. Halloween fejres altså samme aften som Allehelgen aften, men indholdet er et helt andet.</p>\r\n<p>Den danske Allerhelgen har især været en lejlighed til at mindes de kære som man har mistet, men et vist mål af overtro har også her til lands sneget sig ind, idet mange troede at de døde var særligt nær eller ligefrem kunne komme på besøg netop Allehelgensaften.</p>\r\n<p>I de seneste år er Halloween i stigende grad på vej til Danmark, især ses de smukke Halloween græskar nærmest overalt, mens den mere uhyggelige del af Halloween, mest ses som børne og teenager temafest.

Her har jeg forsøgt at svare på de fleste&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hvorfor fejre Halloween?</strong></p>\r\n<p>31. oktober er det Halloween, der stadigt af nogen fejres under det gamle danske navn Alllehelgensaften.</p>\r\n<p>Halloween har oldgamle rødder, men fejres i en meget moderne udgave importeret direkte fra USA&#39;s store kulturelle smeltedigel.&#0160; Om det kan man mene meget, men faktum er at næsten alle danske traditioner er importeret fra udlandet på et eller andet tidspunkt og i disse år er det altså Halloween, der år for år vokser sig større i Danmark.</p>\r\n<p>Traditioner vokser og overlever kun hvis de giver os noget og her må man sige at Halloween rummer elementer som vi ikke finder i nogen anden dansk tradition. Halloween giver os muligheden for at lege med alt det som ellers kan få et barnehjerte til at fryse og det er flere gange sket til vores Halloween fester at børn, der var bange for edderkopper da de kom er gået hjem med en plastikedderkop på hånden.</p>\r\n<p>Halloween er også en fest hvor både børn og voksne får lov til at være grimme og støvet gerne må ligge tommeltykt i hjørnerne. På den måde er Halloween et lille oprør mod alt det pæne og den slags små oprør har mennesker til alle tider haft behov for. &#0160;I tidligere tider var den danske fasterlavnsfest fx et sådan oprør, mens fastelavn i dag mest handler om nuttede udklædninger og lækre fasterlavnsboller. Vi har altså brug for en ny legeplads og her passer Halloween perfekt.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Halloween historie</strong></p>\r\n<p>Halloween har sine dybeste rødder i Kelternes Samhain fest, der markerede vinterens begyndelse og afslutningen på sommeren. Kelterne regnede kun med to årstider og med Samhain fejrede man på en gang høstfest og nytår. Denne nytårsnat var sløret mellem de levende og de døde tyndt og folk frygtede ånderne, der kunne komme på besøg i de levendes verden. Som en slags camouflage klædte man sig ud som spøgelser og onde ånder og gik i procession ud af byen for at lokke de onde ånder væk. Imens tændte druiderne store beskyttende bål og alle i landsbyen startede det nye år med en ny ild i ildstedet.</p>\r\n<p>I middelalderen forsøgte den katolske kirke at blive af med Samhain festen og erstatte den med en kristen tradition kaldet Hallowmas. 1. november blev ca. 610 til Allehelgens dag til minde om alle de helgener der ikke havde egen helgendag og 31. Oktober derved til allehelgensaften. 2. November blev&#0160; i 998 gjort til alle sjæles dag hvor man gennem bøn kunne hjælpe de døde i skærsilden. Som det så ofte er sket&#0160; førte forsøget på at kristne de hedenske skikke til en sammensmeltning af de to og snart gik folk udklædte fra hus til hus i noget der udviklede sig til en tidlig form for ”trick or treat”.</p>\r\n<p>Immigranter til USA medbragte deres forskellige udgaver af Halloween festen og gradvis smeltede de sammen til den fejring vi kender i dag og som nu er ved at vinde indpas i Danmark. Den amerikanske Halloween er rig på plastik og slik, men også mere positivt på kreativitet , leg og hygge. Man skære græskar, leger lege og klæder sig ud og den amerikanske halloween fest er nok så meget en efterårsfest hvor især efterårsløvet og æblerne har en stor plads.</p>\r\n<p>Det er dén hyggelige kreative efterårsfest med uhyggelige undertoner jeg gerne byder velkommen i Danmark. For mig er det vigtigt at Halloween ikke bare bliver endnu en anledning til at købe sig fattig i plastik og udklædning og derfor siger jeg nej til alle de tilbud om at reklamerer for Halloween arrangementer og&#0160; Halloween butikker, der havner i min postkasse. Kik i gemmerne og lav noget selv!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://badut.typepad.com/.a/6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Historien bag Halloween\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://badut.typepad.com/.a/6a0105357b8c7f970b01bb079ec170970d-800wi\" title=\"Historien bag Halloween\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><strong>Halloween i Danmark&#0160;</strong></p>\r\n<p>I Danmark har man aldrig fejret Samhain. Den kristne fejring af allehelgensdag og alle sjæles dag har derimod haft en stor betydning.&#0160;I forbindelse med reformationen valgte man at slå de to dage sammen og gøre 1 november til allehelgensdag. Som det er tradition med mange højtider i Danmark fejres allehelgensdag aftenen før (altså den 31 oktober) som Allehelgensaften. Halloween fejres altså samme aften som Allehelgen aften, men indholdet er et helt andet.</p>\r\n<p>Den danske Allerhelgen har især været en lejlighed til at mindes de kære som man har mistet, men et vist mål af overtro har også her til lands sneget sig ind, idet mange troede at de døde var særligt nær eller ligefrem kunne komme på besøg netop Allehelgensaften.</p>\r\n<p>I de seneste år er Halloween i stigende grad på vej til Danmark, især ses de smukke Halloween græskar nærmest overalt, mens den mere uhyggelige del af Halloween, mest ses som børne og teenager temafest. Desuden ligger Halloween belejligt nok i forlængelse af efterårsferien og derfor har alle de store forlystelsesparker valgt at have Halloween temaer i efterårsferien.</p>\r\n<p>Den vigtigste del af Halloween er for amerikanske børn trick or treat, hvor børnene går udklædte fra hus til hus og indsamler store mængder slik, samt sjove og lidt uhyggelige oplevelser i de festligt udsmykkede hjem.

It&#39;s the first CFL contest after the shooting on Wednesday that claimed the life of Hamilton native Nathan Cirillo. &#0160;&quot;We appreciate the Redbacks making the request and letting us participate in an important event,&quot; Ticats CEO Scott Mitchell said on Twitter.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>• Steve is reporting that teams from across the CFL will the Canadian Forces logo on their helmets and that the Argos will hold a minute of silence before Saturday afternoon&#39;s game.</p>\r\n<p>• On the football front, the Ticats have added running backs Nic Grigsby and Mossis Madu to the 46-man roster, as well as a trio of Canadians: receiver Giovanni Aprile (as back up to Sam Giguere and Matt Coates now that Andy Fantuz is out), linebacker Fredo Plesius (back from injury) and linebacker Christopher Johnson (who was added to the active this week after the Argos tried to claim him off the practice roster.)</p>\r\n<p>Among the roster deletions, defensive tackle Ted Laurent is the most surprising as he practiced this week. According to Kent Austin, Laurent has a &quot;personal commitment he has to keep,&quot; and will return this week. This is just speculation, but Laurent&#39;s uncle passed away just before the last Argo game two weeks ago and Laurent could be attending the funeral.</p>\r\n<p>His absence is a significant as he&#39;s been a dominant force as season. Youngsters Linden Gaydosh and Mike Atkinson will fill in.</p>\r\n<p>Also off the roster are Pawel Kruba (to make room for Johnson) and American running backs Delone Carter and Sam Ojuri, who played last week. How tough is the football business: Carter and Ojuri did a serviceable job in last week&#39;s win, including closing out the win with some quality carries, and find themselves on the bench the following week.</p>",

It&#39;s the first CFL contest after the shooting on Wednesday that claimed the life of Hamilton native Nathan Cirillo. &#0160;&quot;We appreciate the Redbacks making the request and letting us participate in an important event,&quot; Ticats CEO Scott Mitchell said on Twitter.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>• Steve is reporting that teams from across the CFL will the Canadian Forces logo on their helmets and that the Argos will hold a minute of silence before Saturday afternoon&#39;s game.</p>\r\n<p>• On the football front, the Ticats have added running backs Nic Grigsby and Mossis Madu to the 46-man roster, as well as a trio of Canadians: receiver Giovanni Aprile (as back up to Sam Giguere and Matt Coates now that Andy Fantuz is out), linebacker Fredo Plesius (back from injury) and linebacker Christopher Johnson (who was added to the active this week after the Argos tried to claim him off the practice roster.)</p>\r\n<p>Among the roster deletions, defensive tackle Ted Laurent is the most surprising as he practiced this week. According to Kent Austin, Laurent has a &quot;personal commitment he has to keep,&quot; and will return this week. This is just speculation, but Laurent&#39;s uncle passed away just before the last Argo game two weeks ago and Laurent could be attending the funeral.</p>\r\n<p>His absence is a significant as he&#39;s been a dominant force as season. Youngsters Linden Gaydosh and Mike Atkinson will fill in.</p>\r\n<p>Also off the roster are Pawel Kruba (to make room for Johnson) and American running backs Delone Carter and Sam Ojuri, who played last week. How tough is the football business: Carter and Ojuri did a serviceable job in last week&#39;s win, including closing out the win with some quality carries, and find themselves on the bench the following week.</p>",

Grrrrrr. I wanted to get these really interesting wall planters for the studio living room from West Elm, but they were sold out and therefore unavailable for my decorating purposes. The lack of ready-made wall planters sent me searching for a DIY way to get those green leafy guys up on the wall. So I made a few sketches and recruited Josh to implement the plan. -Laura</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Hey guys, Josh here. Laura and I put our heads together for this one. We initially made the planters out of bent acrylic sheets (instead of PVC pipe). They looked awesome! But right when we were about to hang them, the acrylic started cracking open :/ So we had to rethink the material situation. This is what we came up with.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Supplies:<br /></strong>-8-10&quot; PVC pipe&#0160;(length depends on how many planter you plan on making) Try going to to your local plumbing supply store and asking if they have a damage pile you can look through.

Take your straight edge and Sharpie and make a line straight down the pipe lengthwise. Then do the same on the opposite side (the first cut is cutting the pipe in half lengthwise). Depending on the size of pipe, you may not have to cut all the way through, just cut enough for your planter size. The planters we made are about 8.5&quot; high (I used an 8&quot; pipe).</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After I cut the pipe in half, I made a cross cut. I had to drill a hole so I could get the jig saw blade started.&#0160;To make the line for the second cut was a two person job. I measured up 8.5&quot;, then slowly rotated the pipe while Laura held a Sharpie against the pipe, making a line around the circumference. If you don&#39;t have a helping hand, you could clamp the Sharpie onto a table (facing out) and rotate the pipe against it. Or maybe there&#39;s an even easier way that we didn&#39;t think of...</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After I had all the halfsies&#0160;cut out, I spray painted them white to prime them.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it        \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it        \" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></span></a></span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></a><strong>Step Two:</strong>&#0160;This step only requires a couple of cuts! The base is comprised of two pieces of wood. I made the back piece 10&quot; x 12&quot; and the bottom piece 10&quot; x 5&quot;. These measurements make the edge stick out about an 1&quot;. You can make it any size your heart desires. After I had the two pieces cut and attached to each other, I traced the centered half pipe, then applied the super glue to the edges and pressed it against the two surfaces. I clamped the half pipe down. Be careful not to clamp too hard, or it will push the edges of the pipe out, and it&#39;ll be all distorted and wonky and dumb looking. After the glue dried, we painted each planter and installed the hangers on the back. Then it was time to plant!</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Note:</strong> As an afterthought, I decided to round the bottom ledge so it matched the curve of the half pipe. I did it with a jig saw, and it was a bit of a hassle since it was already attached.

She chose plants that would hang over the edge as well as went with the colors we painted the planters. When you are choosing your plants, take into account the amount of light that will be in your space. Different plants require different amounts of light. The little tag on the plant usually indicates the amount of light the plant needs. The planters aren&#39;t very big, so take the size into account as well when you go plant shopping.&#0160;When we planted, I put in a couple of inches of pebbles for drainage, then transplanted the little guys into their new homes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></a></span></span>&#0160;That&#39;s it!

Grrrrrr. I wanted to get these really interesting wall planters for the studio living room from West Elm, but they were sold out and therefore unavailable for my decorating purposes. The lack of ready-made wall planters sent me searching for a DIY way to get those green leafy guys up on the wall. So I made a few sketches and recruited Josh to implement the plan. -Laura</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Hey guys, Josh here. Laura and I put our heads together for this one. We initially made the planters out of bent acrylic sheets (instead of PVC pipe). They looked awesome!

Take your straight edge and Sharpie and make a line straight down the pipe lengthwise. Then do the same on the opposite side (the first cut is cutting the pipe in half lengthwise). Depending on the size of pipe, you may not have to cut all the way through, just cut enough for your planter size. The planters we made are about 8.5&quot; high (I used an 8&quot; pipe).</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After I cut the pipe in half, I made a cross cut. I had to drill a hole so I could get the jig saw blade started.&#0160;To make the line for the second cut was a two person job. I measured up 8.5&quot;, then slowly rotated the pipe while Laura held a Sharpie against the pipe, making a line around the circumference. If you don&#39;t have a helping hand, you could clamp the Sharpie onto a table (facing out) and rotate the pipe against it. Or maybe there&#39;s an even easier way that we didn&#39;t think of...</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">After I had all the halfsies&#0160;cut out, I spray painted them white to prime them.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it        \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f53e970b-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it        \" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f3f970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f0f471970b-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></span></a></span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f78970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961f84970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></a><strong>Step Two:</strong>&#0160;This step only requires a couple of cuts! The base is comprised of two pieces of wood. I made the back piece 10&quot; x 12&quot; and the bottom piece 10&quot; x 5&quot;. These measurements make the edge stick out about an 1&quot;. You can make it any size your heart desires. After I had the two pieces cut and attached to each other, I traced the centered half pipe, then applied the super glue to the edges and pressed it against the two surfaces. I clamped the half pipe down. Be careful not to clamp too hard, or it will push the edges of the pipe out, and it&#39;ll be all distorted and wonky and dumb looking. After the glue dried, we painted each planter and installed the hangers on the back. Then it was time to plant!</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Note:</strong> As an afterthought, I decided to round the bottom ledge so it matched the curve of the half pipe. I did it with a jig saw, and it was a bit of a hassle since it was already attached. You may just want to leave the bottom square, but if you do want it curved, then cut it before you attach to the back!&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961fdd970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961fdd970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07961fdd970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it                                   \" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079620c8970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079620c8970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079620c8970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></a></span></span>Laura picked out the plants because she&#39;s good at that stuff. She chose plants that would hang over the edge as well as went with the colors we painted the planters. When you are choosing your plants, take into account the amount of light that will be in your space. Different plants require different amounts of light. The little tag on the plant usually indicates the amount of light the plant needs. The planters aren&#39;t very big, so take the size into account as well when you go plant shopping.&#0160;When we planted, I put in a couple of inches of pebbles for drainage, then transplanted the little guys into their new homes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed20970c-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d07aed71970c-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07962187970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></span></a></span><span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb079621b8970d-800wi\" title=\"Wall planter (made from pvc pipe, can  you believe it?) click to learn how to make it            \" /></a></span></span>&#0160;That&#39;s it!

Ready to learn some more stitches? In this series, we've covered the <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/09/crochet-basics-getting-started-reading-patterns.html\" target=\"_blank\">basics of reading a pattern</a>, <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/09/crochet-basics-slip-knots-foundation-chains.html\" target=\"_blank\">slip knot &amp; foundation chain</a>, and <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/10/crochet-basics-single-half-double-and-slip-stitch.html\" target=\"_blank\">single &amp; half double</a> crochet stitches. Today you're going to learn how to do double &amp; treble crochet stitches. These stitches are very similar to single and half double, just with slight differences to create more height to the row of stitches, which give a different look to your project. Double &amp; treble crochet stitches are tall, and allow for the fabric that you are making to be looser and more breathable. There's visible space between stitches for a more lace-like effect. These stitches will also work well for making blankets and scarves really quickly. Taller stitches mean less rows to create your project. For this reason, finding a project that uses dc/DC (double crochet) is a great place to start for beginners.</span></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">The 3rd swatch (middle right) is double crochet, and the the 4th swatch (far right) is treble crochet, to give you an idea of how much taller the stitches are from single and half double crochet.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b-popup\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Stitch swatches.\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b-800wi\" alt=\"Stitch swatches.\" border=\"0\" /></a></span></span>If you're starting a project, slip knot onto your hook and chain however many stitches your pattern asks or however wide you want your scarf/blanket to be. Then, make the first DC into the 3rd chain from your hook.&nbsp;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; height: auto; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/C0-234LXZ6E' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Start with yarning over and insert your hook into the top of the stitch (or into the ch st if this is your first row). Pull the yarn through so that you have 3 loops on your hook. Next, yarn over and only pull the yarn through the first 2 loops on your hook. You should still have 2 loops remaining on your hook. Yarn over again, and pull through those remaining two loops. That's a dc stitch!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">For treble crochet (tr), sometimes called triple crochet, start by yarning over TWICE. That's the difference from dc to tr. After you yarn over 2 times, insert your hook into the 5th chain from your hook and pull the yarn through so you have 4 loops on your hook. You'll do the next step 3 times. Yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops, yarn over again and pull through the next 2 loops, then finally yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops. That's a tr stitch!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f3623a970b-popup\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f3623a970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Crochet Projects\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f3623a970b-800wi\" alt=\"Crochet Projects\" border=\"0\" /></a></span></span>Practice these stitches, and I'll be back with some patterns!

Ready to learn some more stitches? In this series, we've covered the <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/09/crochet-basics-getting-started-reading-patterns.html\" target=\"_blank\">basics of reading a pattern</a>, <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/09/crochet-basics-slip-knots-foundation-chains.html\" target=\"_blank\">slip knot &amp; foundation chain</a>, and <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/10/crochet-basics-single-half-double-and-slip-stitch.html\" target=\"_blank\">single &amp; half double</a> crochet stitches. Today you're going to learn how to do double &amp; treble crochet stitches. These stitches are very similar to single and half double, just with slight differences to create more height to the row of stitches, which give a different look to your project. Double &amp; treble crochet stitches are tall, and allow for the fabric that you are making to be looser and more breathable. There's visible space between stitches for a more lace-like effect. These stitches will also work well for making blankets and scarves really quickly. Taller stitches mean less rows to create your project. For this reason, finding a project that uses dc/DC (double crochet) is a great place to start for beginners.</span></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">The 3rd swatch (middle right) is double crochet, and the the 4th swatch (far right) is treble crochet, to give you an idea of how much taller the stitches are from single and half double crochet.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><span style=\"display: inline; background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b-popup\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Stitch swatches.\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f35fe5970b-800wi\" alt=\"Stitch swatches.\" border=\"0\" /></a></span></span>If you're starting a project, slip knot onto your hook and chain however many stitches your pattern asks or however wide you want your scarf/blanket to be. Then, make the first DC into the 3rd chain from your hook.&nbsp;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; height: auto; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/C0-234LXZ6E' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Start with yarning over and insert your hook into the top of the stitch (or into the ch st if this is your first row). Pull the yarn through so that you have 3 loops on your hook. Next, yarn over and only pull the yarn through the first 2 loops on your hook. You should still have 2 loops remaining on your hook. Yarn over again, and pull through those remaining two loops. That's a dc stitch!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">For treble crochet (tr), sometimes called triple crochet, start by yarning over TWICE. That's the difference from dc to tr. After you yarn over 2 times, insert your hook into the 5th chain from your hook and pull the yarn through so you have 4 loops on your hook. You'll do the next step 3 times. Yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops, yarn over again and pull through the next 2 loops, then finally yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops.

I just like the photo.</p>\r\n<p>(I understand that grandiosity and fixed views of enlightenment are not exactly part of Buddhist teachings. But since I&#39;m only a pretend Buddhist, only desiring to achieve Buddha-nature because that sounds cool, I don&#39;t really worry about the purity of my dharma practice.)</p>\r\n<p>Leaving aside pseudo-spirituality, my fallback position for the next six weeks is to visualize myself as a highly paid personal aide to a movie star. Laurel is damn good looking for her age, or any age, so this isn&#39;t all that difficult for me to imagine.</p>\r\n<p>I&#39;ve started doing this already, since Laurel can&#39;t use her right arm for certain tasks and her left arm has been sore from overuse.</p>\r\n<p>It does seem to help me achieve more of a compassionate, caring attitude than my habitual self-centered personality is normally capable of.

She&#39;s right handed, so for the six weeks she&#39;ll be wearing a sling, I will be her right arm.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Being (1) a woman, (2) a wife, and (3) someone who knows me well after our 24 years of marriage, this is pretty much Laurel&#39;s worst nightmare.</p>\r\n<p>Meaning, the surgery to repair a detached tendon is bad enough.</p>\r\n<p>Having to depend on my housekeeping, health care-giving, cooking, dog wiping (it&#39;s rainy season; we live in the country; trails are muddy), laundry, and other domestic &quot;talents&quot; for six weeks -- <em>scary!&#0160;</em>For Laurel is a woman who likes this stuff done in a certain way.</p>\r\n<p>Optimistic me -- hey, I&#39;m not having the surgery -- sees this experience as an opportunity for each of us to grow in different ways.&#0160;Laurel, perhaps, might learn to relax a bit if (when?) she sees that my way of handling things isn&#39;t the same as hers, but works fairly well.</p>\r\n<p>As for me, I&#39;m grandiosely expecting that these six weeks will, if not cement my Buddha-nature into enlightened stone, get me well on the way to perfected realization.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://hinessight.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451c0aa69e201b8d08378f0970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Dog buddha\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451c0aa69e201b8d08378f0970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://hinessight.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451c0aa69e201b8d08378f0970c-320wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Dog buddha\" /></a><br />Not me. I just like the photo.</p>\r\n<p>(I understand that grandiosity and fixed views of enlightenment are not exactly part of Buddhist teachings. But since I&#39;m only a pretend Buddhist, only desiring to achieve Buddha-nature because that sounds cool, I don&#39;t really worry about the purity of my dharma practice.)</p>\r\n<p>Leaving aside pseudo-spirituality, my fallback position for the next six weeks is to visualize myself as a highly paid personal aide to a movie star. Laurel is damn good looking for her age, or any age, so this isn&#39;t all that difficult for me to imagine.</p>\r\n<p>I&#39;ve started doing this already, since Laurel can&#39;t use her right arm for certain tasks and her left arm has been sore from overuse.</p>\r\n<p>It does seem to help me achieve more of a compassionate, caring attitude than my habitual self-centered personality is normally capable of. I just have to keep the uncomfortable fact that I&#39;m not going to be paid lavishly for my six weeks of being a substitute right-arm from rising too far into reality-consciousness.</p>\r\n<p>Along this line, my second fallback position is to keep Laurel so drugged up on her oxycodone prescription and other pain pills that she either won&#39;t be able to tell how well I&#39;m taking care of the house, or she won&#39;t care.</p>\r\n<p>However, my wife doesn&#39;t like to take more pain-killers than is necessary, and tends to get side effects from prescription medication, so this scheme probably is doomed for failure.</p>\r\n<p>Which leaves me with my initial inclination: to be so caring, selfless, and compassionate for the six weeks, whoever or whatever hands out Buddha-nature certificates drops mine in the cosmic mail without question.

Many of you have been directly </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">touched by Breast cancer, either yourself, a family member or a close friend. This </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">year, I decided to create a new project to honor those who have been touched by </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">this disease. </span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I have always loved fairy tales. One of my favorites was The Princess and The </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Pea. This project, Pink Princess and the Pea, is a stack of 6 mattress boxes in a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">canopy bed frame. Each mattress box contains a “Tag-olio” to hold photos and </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">journaling. This project seems to “fit” with the encouragement of self exams. The </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">pea represents the lump some have found during a self exam. I can only image the </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">panic of discovering that lump in your breast. </span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I have set a up a donation website through Susan G Komen Passionately Pink for </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">a Cure program. who makes a donation on that webpage will be entered into a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">drawing to win the original project shown or one of 3 kits to make your own Pink </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Princess and the Pea. Thank you beyond measure to all who are willing to donate. </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">100% of the donations on this website go to the Susan G Komen Foundation, a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">leader in the charge against Breast Cancer. Through this site, you will receive a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">receipt for your donation and information about how your money aids in the fight </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">against Breast Cancer.

Many of you have been directly </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">touched by Breast cancer, either yourself, a family member or a close friend. This </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">year, I decided to create a new project to honor those who have been touched by </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">this disease. </span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I have always loved fairy tales. One of my favorites was The Princess and The </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Pea. This project, Pink Princess and the Pea, is a stack of 6 mattress boxes in a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">canopy bed frame. Each mattress box contains a “Tag-olio” to hold photos and </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">journaling. This project seems to “fit” with the encouragement of self exams. The </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">pea represents the lump some have found during a self exam. I can only image the </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">panic of discovering that lump in your breast. </span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">I have set a up a donation website through Susan G Komen Passionately Pink for </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">a Cure program. who makes a donation on that webpage will be entered into a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">drawing to win the original project shown or one of 3 kits to make your own Pink </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Princess and the Pea. Thank you beyond measure to all who are willing to donate. </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">100% of the donations on this website go to the Susan G Komen Foundation, a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">leader in the charge against Breast Cancer. Through this site, you will receive a </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">receipt for your donation and information about how your money aids in the fight </span><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">against Breast Cancer.

They are everything I&#39;m looking for in a wearable companion. From the leather strap to the modern gold font and the slightly cheeky phrases, it&#39;s the perfect combination to make me say, &quot;Gimmie! I want!&quot; in a very mature and dignified manner. Besides looking so darn cute, the other big plus about these bracelets is that they take just minutes to make, and you can personalize them with whatever phrase or hashtag you want! #yesplease!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb0795242e970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Have to make these!
