- earring backs
- tennis balls
- random hoop earring
- a key to Heather's old apartment (think I'll save that for the next time I'm in ol' San Angelo)
- dead batteries
- winter gloves
- too many tubes of lip gloss and chapstick to count
KEY GNOMES, wherever you are, I would like my keychain back. It is the first thing I ever got in a little blue box from Tiffany's, and it is engraved with my name on it. My bridesmaids and friends gave it to me at my bachelorette party in Austin. Take all the discount card thingys, take my car keys, give the Tiffany's back!

I was reading Kimya Dawson's myspace page today (if you don't know, she is the genius behind most of the Juno soundtrack- she is awesome and amazing and cracks me up in a weird sort of way) and came across these. She mentions that she owns some in the tie-dyed style and I couldn't help but laugh. To each their own, right? I don't think I'm ready for the wash-and-reuse bit. I do give her props for doing her part in cutting down her use of disposable items, and she is a big proponent for cloth diapers (btw- her daughter's name is Panda- had to throw that in). I am excited, though, because I ordered my first DivaCup today. I am anxious to see how it works out. I have used Instead before, but I wasn't pleased with them. Hopefully better luck this time!
Oh, and I also found a super-cool site for natural products for your home. NancyBoy sells a variety of products that look and (according to testimonials) work great. I am going to try the laundry detergent first, then probably the linen water (lemon verbana- yum!). I have really sensitive skin, and I generally use All Free and Clear for laundry, followed by fragrance-free dryer sheets. I will follow up and let you know how it works! I'm also curious to know- those of you who cloth diaper- what detergents you use to launder them. Maybe this would be a good choice? Just wondering.
Final thought. Does anyone out there use a natural deodorant (no antiperspirant)? I remember reading that in someone's blog, I think. Anyways, I've been reading up about the potential dangers in commercial deodorant/antiperspirant (mainly concerning aluminum) and I'm thinking about switching to a natural brand, maybe Crystal? CrunchyChicken recommends that one. I'm just worried about the sweat factor- even if I don't smell, I don't want underarm circles! Advice anyone?
