Hi Everyone,

Once again I'm asking for some advice...p-l-e-a-s-e (lol). 

The pictures below are of a lotion that I found and purchased of my all time favorite shopping spots...Goodwill!!!

This is actually a brand of lotion that I have read about, but found to be a little pricey for I was so excited to have found this at Goodwill...paid $1.99 for it.

However, there aren't any instructions given on the bottle and I haven't been able to find this same bottle anywhere yet on the web.

I took a close up of the bottle so you could clearly see the name ... and it says:

Skin Lotion (Rich) does look more like a toner, but I have found this brand to have some "whitening" lotions and other lotions that look the same as this lotion does, but they are in a different type bottle and, of course, do not say "skin lotion (rich)" as this bottle does.
I even thought that perhaps it was perfume (even though the label clearly says it's lotion), and it does have a wonderful scent, however, when applied to the skin, the scent disappears.

If anyone could advise me on this...I would be so grateful as I LOVE this find of mine and would love to be able to use this lotion.  From what I've read about Shiseido, this brand is suppose to work wonders for those fine lines and!!! (lol)

Whew!  Hello everyone from dreary, rainy Indiana.  I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've posted and since I've sent out a newsletter.  But...I have good news.  I'll be sending out a newsletter soon...and I thought I'd post a few pics of one of the new patterns.  This is Rag-a-Muffin & Her Raggedy Quilt.  Rag-a-Muffin has hair made of rags and her very own raggedy star quilt.  I loved designing her and hopefully you will all enjoy making her.

Now...I do have a favor to ask of all of you.  I have something very special I'd like to make for my hubby for Christmas.  I recently came across 3 old pictures of his father...whom he adored.  Now you have to understand how rare and how very unlikely it is that I came across these pictures.  Bob's mother had Alzheimer's and consequently threw away anything and everything that had any personal value at all.  I pictures of the family...AT ALL.  No pictures of Bob and his brother when t hey were school projects of theirs...nothing.  I do have a few pics of Bob though...very few.  But...they do happen to coincide with these pictures I found of his dad....and what I want to do is to put the pictures together.  Sorry...I'm sure there's a technical term for it...but I don't know it.  

I have a picture of Bob's dad in his army uniform...and I also have a few pictures of Bob in Viet Nam in his uniform.  I have a picture of his Dad playing the guitar and I have a picture of Bob playing the guitar.  I want to put the two army pictures together and the two guitar pictures together to appear as though he and his dad are in the same picture.  Do you know what I mean? I know there's software you can purchase that will produce what I want...but I have no idea what it's called?...where to go to look? idea at all.  And...the cheaper the better as I also want to get these matted and framed professionally.

So...please guys.  Your help, advice, ideas...would be so appreciated.  So if you can help me out at all...just drop me a note

Blessings everyone,
