We're gonna need your help to give this simple sandwich a name...
2 slices of bread
slice of cheese
one egg, beaten
pat of butter
salt and pepper to taste
Get a light toast on the bread
soak one side of each bread slice in egg
cook the egged side of the bread in a pan on medium heat
place the cheese slice between the cooked egg
you might be tempted to scramble up the remaining egg and add it to the sammich...
don't bother, it just makes the cheese messy:)
toasting the bread keeps it from getting soggy...and we'd interested in your tips, ideas, and name for this culinary masterpiece. Submitted by Mike Burnes (singer songwriter extraordinaire)

This egghead character is a adventurous gnome who knows his terrain
ready for a hike with a walking stick and trail marker
he's got a reputation as a big storyteller, and can be found puffing his pipe and telling a great tale of how he earned his trackers patch
his enourmous hiking shoes are the well worn out,
...and his favorite saying is printed on the back of his shirt: FOLLOW ME
A sneaky mouse called Whistle is his constant companion
the Gnome Guide is available for $22 with free shipping on MadeItMyself.com
He wants me to tell you the one about how you can follow me on this blog...
look for the signs on the right>

I don't expect you'll sit through the hours and hours of film to witness WTBDWK
but I can tell you this 'documentary' will get you thinking about thinking.
There's powerful stuff in WTBDWK and I even bought the DVD for Down the Rabbit Hole---so I've viewed hours of this heady material.
What the BLEEP Do We Know — First released in theaters in 2004, WTBDWK!? went on to become one of the most successful documentaries of all time. Now distributed in over 30 countries, it has stunned audiences with its revolutionary cinematic blend of dramatic film, documentary, animation and comedy, while serving up a mind-jarring blend of Quantum Physics, spirituality, neurology and evolutionary thought.

It's known as St. Andrews Cross, because of the way it holds it's legs in a cross and hangs upside down in the web. The large white zigzag in the centre of its web is called the stabilimentum or web decoration
They're not dangerous to humans, but they do produce about 1400 babies!

They wanted to have the sign created and shipped in one week, so it can be used as a prop in their production: Signature Series. So, I gave the project my full attention and found myself wondering how this sign will fit into their storyline. The sign was shipped on time, and I hope it fulfilled it's purpose.
Performance artist Marc Horowitz’s segment of his “Signature Series,” a cross-country tour in his efforts to make a difference in the world.
So maybe my sign will be traveling the country, in search of problems:)

I'm quickly putting my best inventory on the new selling venue..
so I can establish my shop and build a good business there!
Made it Myself doesn't allow dealers of any kind, which keeps the product offerings more inline with what shoppers will expect.
This couldn't come at a better time for my shop, Edge of the Wildwood!
I can ease out of my role on Etsy, and perhaps maintain that shop for custom orders, vintage items and supplies.
Made it Myself will go through some growing pains, and I'm ready to work with them to develop a new marketplace that accepts only handmade items.
I'm prepared for the long run.
