Easy, Transportable Needle Storage

I know I’ve seen the question of “how should I store my (especially circular and double pointed) knitting needles?” asked dozens of times. It’s also a question I’ve asked myself, and have tried a few different methods. This is my newest one, and I’m feeling pretty good about it so far. It’s pretty cheap, easy to transport, and totally re-sortable. All it requires is duct tape, plastic bags, and a binder.

My mom has hers in one of those over-the-door shoe organizers. I think that’s such a great idea, but as someone who’s in a much more transitional period of life, I wanted one that could move with me. My previous method was a roll-up with eyelets I knit. I liked it, but it would be difficult to reorganize, didn’t really accommodate my circulars well, and could be easily outgrown.

Thus, I started thinking I could buy a bunch of pencil pouches and putting my needles in them in a binder. But when I looked into it, pencil pouches are not as cheap as I’d hoped. I was thinking of getting 20, and they were going to cost at least a couple dollars per each one. But then my mom suggested hole punching ziploc bags instead, and I thought that was a great idea! So here’s how I put together this needle storage, which I imagine works great for double pointed needles, circular needles, and crochet needles, among other things.

These are the supplies I used:

A binder (I chose a fun colourful 1.5″ one with elastic ties, but any is probably fine) (if I was redoing this, though, I might choose a 2 prong one instead), duct tape (I decided on three colours, but you could certainly do this with regular cheap duct tape), plastic bags (I wanted ones with the sliders), and a 3 hole punch.

First, lay out a strip of duct tape, and lay the plastic bag on half the tape. The duct tape makes it easier to hole punch and makes the holes much stronger and less likely to rip.

Cut the tape and fold it over along the bag.

Hole punch the duct-taped edge. Since the bags I chose were only long enough for two holes, I alternated between holes on the top and holes on the bottom.

Then you can pop the bag in the binder.

Then I labelled each bag with a sharpie and put the needles in.

I decided to have one bag per size, except I did a separate bag for double pointed needles and circulars. Other than that, I just put it in order. If I get any new needles, I can make a new bag and put it in the right place.


Now I have my needles all organized, accessible, and transportable. :)

I don't get it. Yang spent most of her time taking care of Ruby and being the Mom figure in the Rose-Xiao Long household. How come most fans see Yang as the wild type of teenager before her Beacon days? She's always depicted as the young carefree party flirty drunkard horny teenage girl. Something's not right here. Care to enlighten me?

because she’s blonde and shows off her cleavage and she was introduced putting on a flirty act to get information from a criminal information broker and a lot of people didn’t get that it was an act - so she’s dismissed as a promiscuous idiot who goes out drinking (when i mean, growing up in an environment with a depressed alcoholic and… god whatever was going on with Tai for god knows how long, that’d probably turn a lot of people off the drink for life), doesn’t do well or pay attention in class and makes stupid jokes that are often inappropriate and most of the time at someone elses expense

and then they turned around and acted offended when Emerald called her a bimbo

but essentially, it’s the very thing the opening of the Yellow trailer told people not to do, which was to make assumptions based on the surface Yang presents, which everyone ignored, presumably because boobs

Hello! I’ve wanted to make a post for a while now about the top KonMari tips that helped me to organize my study space and my living space. So here are the tips that work best for me.

If you don’t know what the KonMari method is, or who Marie Kondo is, she is basically a tidying guru and has helped people around the world tidy their homes. I highly recommend her books. Her method isn’t like any I’ve ever read about and it actually works. I recommend that you try the full method. This is just a breakdown of her method in my own words. The most basic of the basics you could say.

1. Throw away everything that doesn’t spark joy

This is the defining feature of the KonMari method. Throw away anything that doesn’t make you happy. You have to touch them and hold them and ask yourself if they make you happy or in her words, “spark joy.” If they don’t, throw them away, if they do, keep them. This way, at the end, you should end up with things that only make you happy. The recommended order is




Komono (Miscellaneous)

Sentimental Items

2. Designate a spot for everything

This is probably the tip that helped me the most. She advises you to make a home for everything and make sure that items are returned to their homes after they are used. I find that after I only have items that spark joy, using this method is extremely helpful in keeping my space clutter free.

3. Make things easy to access

Keeping storage simple instead of having fancy-schmancy storage has been really helpful. It made things easier to get and put away which in turn, made me put things away in their proper place more instead of just leaving it out because I didn’t want to go through the trouble.

These are the tips from KonMari that helped me most. This is most definitely not the whole method and you should definitely try reading the book if you’re interested. But, these are the tips that I found the most helpful and I hope that you can try these out because they really will help out with keeping your space clutter-free. Thanks for reading and sorry if this isn’t very good, it’s my first text post thing-a-ma-jig :D.


Thing you have to remember about these? Is that most jams and jellies require a buttload of sugar. And for a very long time, sugar was hugely expensive.

Older fruit preservation methods included drying (FUN FACT roman housekeepers were REQUIRED to lay in a stock of "dried pears, sorbs (a type of apple) grapes, and quinces"

There were also pickling, fermenting, butters, and storing in jars of honey. But for thousands of years, drying was the easiest and cheapest method, and also handily reduces the bulk and weight for easy storage.

Dried fruits can be rehydrated and cooked into compotes, pastries, sauces, and many other dishes.

Now. In the Middle East and warmer climates, sugar cane grew naturally and was of course harvested and used. (Sugar cane was domesticated maybe 10,000 years ago in Papua New Guinea, and cultivation spread from there throughout tropical Asia, through India, and to the Middle East when Darius the Great brought plants back from India.)

People cottoned on pretty quickly to the fact that sugar was a good preservative and also tasty, so the invention of jams and jellies in the middle east was a natural thing. People of high and low status alike enjoyed them, as fruit and sugar were both plentiful in the area.

During the Crusades, Europeans encountered jam and jelly (and sugar) for the first time and were like “Damn yes please more of that.”

Of course, Europe is too cold for sugarcane to grow. So sugar had to be imported, an was expensive as fuck. About 2 shillings a pound, which would be around $50 a pound today. Keep in mind that plenty of jelly and jam recipes require a pound of sugar and you understand how at first jam and jelly (and marmalade) was a pricy dish.

For the poor, this meant that it was an occasional treat, and while it could be sweetened with honey or not sweetened at all if the fruit itself was sweet enough, the sugar-sweetened type was the most desired because of course it was.

So, fancy desserts and the like, for celebration days.

The rich, on the other hand, realized that jams and jellies were a concentrated, easy to digest source of energy, and thus well suited for invalids.

This was pretty much the status quo until we reach the age of exploration colonialism, where many European nations committed genocides, annexed lands, took slaves, and fought wars to gain control of sugar production.

Ask any black person how that went.

 Hell. Sugar farm workers are still expected to work backbreaking days for little pay, so we can have our cheap sugar.

Anyway, between the genocides, slavery, and annexation of land suitable for sugar production, sugar prices plummeted to the point where the average joe was easily able to afford it. Jams and jellies became popular amongst the working and lower classes, and remain so to this day.

“I could’ve sworn this was a two person mission.” Natasha murmured to herself  as she scanned over the files they were given. They were just at a briefing and were handed newfound missions.

Steve found himself silently wishing it was his.

“It’s for you, Steve,” Nat handed the file to him. He bit the inside of his cheek, to stop the corner of his mouth from turning up. Of course it is. [Y/N], wouldn’t have it another way.

This deal of theirs evolved into a habit. For the past 3 months, Steve will be needed for about 2-4 days twice or trice a month. It was always an over the top mission but somehow it only needed the captain. If someone in the team is required to accompany him then just by chance, a mission will be assigned to that person thus leaving the captain on his own accords.

Steve slowly felt that he would be waiting for the said specified mission for him. Even though [Y/N] never credited herself for it, Steve knew that it was her. He was always placed on solo missions that would be too easy even with just him and then before he goes home way earlier than stated, he gets a message from [Y/N] that he’s needed. That much coincidence wasn’t just pure… coincidence.

“What mission are we going now?” Steve asked worriedly, removing the jacket he wore. He got a text message with only the words: ‘urgent mission. come as soon as you’ve seen this.’ With only those words, he speeded towards the place, using his motorcycle. 

“You’re in for a treat, captain.” [Y/N] walked towards him, a small cylindrical object in hand with her usual smirk. “I have a special job just for you.” 

She shoved the object to his hands before going back to her work space, leaving him confused. “It’s called ‘hold the flashlight while I fix the thing’.”

Update and Recap on my Dungeon Tiles:
I’ve been making these as quick, cheap little projects that I can be as creative as I want with them, but not feel obligated to make something big. Each one is made with foam core, and I might back them with masonite in the future to prevent warping, as it gets pretty annoying. One main goal I had was easy storage. As such, there are no solid modeled walls, only the lip to allude to there being a wall. This makes each one very thin, visible, and light. As I said before, they’re also very cheap to make. No dance tools needed, no fancy materials and no real skill required. Just some foamcore and painters putty for texture, along with some sand/coffee grounds. For anyone looking to make their only dungeon for DnD or what have you, I think this is a decent method to use for a cost effective, low effort result.

Ho w t o b e o r g a n i z e d

Here are the essential ten habits they use to keep their lives in order :

1. Write Things Down

We all know someone that remembers every birthday and sends cards for every holiday. It’s not magic and they don’t use memorization. Trying to remember things will not help you to stay organized. You should try writing things down. A pen and some paper is our way of remembering things externally, and it’s much more permanent. You can also use a computer or a smart phone. You will only further complicate your life by trying to contain important dates and reminders in your head. Write down everything: shopping lists for groceries, holiday gifts, home decor, and important dates like meetings and birthdays.

As an experiment, try writing down people’s names shortly after you meet them (when they’re not looking). I’ll bet you remember a lot more names that way.

2. Make Schedules and Deadlines

Organized people don’t waste time. They recognize that keeping things organized goes hand-in-hand with staying productive. They make and keep schedules for the day and week. They make deadlines and set goals. And most importantly, they and stick to them! Similarly, by living a cluttered lifestyle, you will not have the time or space to make your deadlines or achieve your goals.

As an experiment, look at your bucket list or make one. Write down the things you want to achieve this year or in your life. Then write down what you need to do to achieve them.

3. Don’t Procrastinate

The longer you wait to do something, the more difficult it will be to get it done. If you want your life to be less stressful and less demanding, then organize as soon as you can. Putting in the effort to get things done as soon as possible will lift the weight off of you from doing it later.

As an experiment, think of one thing that you should organize in your life. Write it down. Then write down when you can do it and what you need to get it done. If you can get it done right now, then go do it!

4. Give Everything a Home

It’s easy to get lost if you don’t have a home. Keeping your life organized means keeping your things in their proper places. Organized people keep order by storing things properly and by labeling storage spaces. Make easy-to-access storage spaces for things you use all the time, and don’t let your storage spaces get cluttered. Be creative about finding places for things. In addition, as a BIG NO : never label a storage space as “miscellaneous!

As an experiment, choose one place in your home that you can re-organize. If there are scattered items, then group them together. Once you’ve sorted everything, find or make a “home” for similar items, label the “homes,” and put them in the proper places. For example, a cup holder for your pens and pencils should go in an easily accessible place, but the rarely used craft materials can be stored out of sight.

5. Declutter Regularly

Find time each week to organize. Highly organized people make sure they find time every week, or more, to organize there things. Stuff does not stay organized on its own; it needs to be reorganized continuously and consistently.

As an experiment, look at your schedule and find a time to organize, then do it.

6. Keep Only What You Need

More stuff means more clutter. People who live organized lives only keep what they need and what they really really want. Having fewer things also means that you enjoy those things more and feel better about using everything you own, rather than letting half of what you own collect dust. Have you ever felt like you don’t have the space to keep all the stuff you own? Instead of renting a storage unit or buying a larger home, get rid of some things.

As an experiment, write down the number of things you think you actually need. Then, write a list of all the things that you own. If the number of things you actually own exceeds your ideal need list, then it’s time to organize.

7. Know Where to Discard Items

Do whatever you can to get rid of stuff. Less stuff means less clutter. Donate to thrift stores. Sell on Craigslist or eBay. Take a trip to the recycling center. Set up a garage sale. Find a place to get rid of your things.

As an experiment, choose one space in your house to purge. Go through shelves, drawers, and boxes. Everything you find that you don’t need, set aside. Make a pile of things to maybe keep, which you can go through later, and a pile of things to discard now. Then find a way to kick those things out the door immediately.

8. Stay Away from Bargains

You have removed the things you don’t need. Will you replace them when you see something on sale? Instead of bargain shopping without planning ahead, write down down exactly what you need and buy only those items. Organized people do not give in to false advertising. Items on sale will only produce more clutter.

As an experiment, go to a shopping mall with no money. Just look at all the things on sale that you wish you could buy if you had brought your wallet or purse. If you find nothing, then good for you. If you made a list, then keep that list somewhere and look at it a month from now. If you still want it, then it’s safe to buy.

9. Delegate Responsibilities

A really organized life is not overfilled with responsibilities, meetings, and deadlines. In fact, it has less because things that create stress have been slowly organized out.

As an experiment, look at your to-do list or make one. Go through the list and find one task that you can remove from your list or give to someone else. Now feel the stress of having to do it fall away.

10. Work Hard

Put in a little effort. Actually, put in a lot of effort when necessary. Once you have delegated responsibilities and made a schedule, then you can organize what you have to do and when you can do it. Staying organized is not all a breeze. It requires that you work hard with recognition that when you work harder, you can enjoy your clutter-free home life later.

As an experiment, worker harder when you feel like giving up today.

[Saito Souma blog 032317] An important announcement.

Everyone, good day, I’m Saito Souma.
This time, I’d been given the honor of spreading the news myself!

Just as announced everywhere else, I, Saito Souma, shall be making my solo artist debut under SACRA MUSIC!

The first single is to be released on June 7, 2017, Wednesday!
It’s called “Fiche Story”!
Amazingly, THE Oishi Masayoshi-san had been put in charge of the lyrics, arrangement, and composition!
While there’s a lot I can’t say yet, it’s a quirky pop song, and definitely became something embodying the things I like.
I really want everyone to hear this tune I love very soon!
If you’ll grab hold of a copy, I’d be pleased!
I’ll be in your care!

It’s been a long time preparing for this, so I think I’m really happy to be finally able to convey this to you all!
To be honest, when I first started going on the path of a seiyuu, whenever there’d be talk about me going on stage, I never could imagine how the me singing songs would look like.
I’m a seiyuu until the very end, so I thought I wanted to be someone who just supports the productions I’m in.

However, as I’d challenged various things in my role as seiyuu, I’d gradually begun to think stuff like “I wanna do things like this more,” “What else should I do for the sake of broadening my range?”
If the me from that time would feel something along the lines of “becoming part of [the music industry] is a delusion!” at today’s news, now I’m boldly taking a step forward.

While it’ll take a bit longer before we can say anything more concrete, I have a lot of feelings about promoting things about me singing songs, about performing in front of everyone!
To everyone who’d been supporting me, if this new “Saito Souma” I’m conveying to you pleases you, I think I shall devote myself so that you may want to call on me!
From now on as well, the seiyuu Saito Souma will also be in your care!

Also, accompanying this turn of events, an official webpage and Twitter account had been established!
Either one is managed and updated by the staff team, and aside from this blog, they will convey various news!
Please look upon both of these kindly!

Official webpage

Twitter account

That being said, that’s the news about my debut single’s release!
Please look upon me kindly, and cheer on me continuously!
Well then, until next time!

Saito Souma

Seprent Magick- Uses for Snake Sheddings

I have a snake and have been actively working with her shed skins, i figured it would be a good ideas to make a post about their uses. as a snake grows they naturally shed their skins, and in many cultures they are strongly associated with the natural cycles of life, death and change.

Uses for skins:

  • used in protection spells
  • used to represent a transformation
  • Renewal of growth (because in order for a snake to grow it must shed its old skin thus revealing a new one)
  • can be used for changes
  • used to represent natural cycles 
  • can represent rebirth
  • can be associated with either masculine or feminine energizes
  • could be used in vision work (when a snake goes into shed their vision clouds and they cannot see well, because the protective skin that cover’s their eyes detaches so that a new one can form. the snakes vision dose not fully return until the old skin is shed)
  • getting over someone or something 
  • can be used in magic pouches and jars.
  • collecting the suns energy (since snakes are cold blooded some must bask in the suns energy for warmth in order to survive. so thinking about it snake sheds would be a great way to absorb and store the suns energy.) 
  • can be turned into powder (once dry they can be ground down into a powder for easy use and storage) 
  • color association.(i have only seen snakes skins in a dark black brown color or white. so depending on the color of the skin it can also take on the association of the color.)

#7 The Perfect Necklace

Here’s a guide to pick the most flattering necklace for your top’s neckline.

there’s this little girl at work who gets bored rly easily and is also obsessed with me, which is fine, except sometimes she won’t leave me alone when i have work to do, so last friday i got her an easy reader book from storage and told her if she read the whole thing, marked down any words she didn’t know, and then came to me and told me what it was about, that’d i’d give her a “surprise” (read: a little debbies brownie i found in the pantry)

so anyway, she talked about that book coooonstantly today, and another little girl overheard, so i got her a book too, and idk u guys, i think im inadvertently starting a little kid book club at DV shelter


With so many other studyblrs owning muji pens/sarasas/any other type of high demand pen out there, I feel like we just have to pause and appreciate the wonderful pens by kikki-k.

They are gel (like our bestie muji) but only come in one nib size. BUT they come in a really cute case for easy (and aesthetic) storage!

I purchased them here in Australia for $14.95 (and the labelling says it’s the same for US$). ALSO when you sign up as a member with kikki-k, you get a $10 voucher to spend without a set minimum spending amount!! How cool is that? So I technically purchased these pens for only $4.95 for the whole set.

So far they are quite inky enough (haven’t died on me temporarily… yet).
I use these pens for any “fake calligraphy” I do for my bullet journaling or notes as they are thicker than the 0.38mm muji pens I own, and hence better to colour in.

anonymous asked:

could we have some cursed!faux!incest bed-sharing? and somehow emma sees this? please and thank you

The freak storm came as rather a surprise to Emma, specially since none of the weather apps she checked on her phone announced it, only the local news show had. Thankfully the limited population of Storybrooke made evacuation of everyone to the school gym- turned into a makeshift shelter with enough beds to make do mostly- a rather easy affair. Grudgingly the sheriff had to hand it to Regina… it was the most organised, by-the-book, efficient evacuation she’d ever seen. The contingency plan had been carried out to perfection, and everything from supplies to logistic had been smoothly put in place.

Then again that was Regina Mills in a nutshell. It was about time her annoying attention to detail and need to micro-manage things actually helped the community she was in charge of.

Emma had thought that, out of everyone, Mr Gold would give her the most trouble. Not even Leroy was stupid enough to take risks during a dangerous storm but she’d thought the pawnbroker would be adamant about staying put in his home, convinced of his invincibility and unwilling to slum it with the rest of the town. But it was Belle Gold the one to cause a headache instead by refusing to leave her library until every provision was taken to ensure her books would survive the ordeal. In the end it was her brother the one able to coax her to the shelter, Belle cuddled close and in obvious distress as he murmured reassuring nothings into her ear.

By the time they arrived most people had settled, but a bit of looking around had produced a solitary forgotten bed in a corner of the gym, which Belle promptly took. Emma had expected Mr Gold to subtly threaten some poor schmuck with a rent hike to secure a second one before making a cosy nest next right next to his sister but, much to her surprise all he did was hoard himself some basic supplies - a couple of bottles of water and some granola bars, nothing she could begrudge him- and sit down to eat with Belle, who still seemed distressed.

The upside of the whole ordeal was that Regina, apparently, slept like a log- Emma had seen take a pill earlier in the evening, which accounted for her near-comatose state- which meant that she could steal herself some time with Henry, who looked devastatingly cute in his space-themed pyjamas. Once he too fell asleep- star-shaped on the bed, too reminiscent of Neal to make her feel comfortable- she made the rounds, feeling a bit guilty about shirking her responsibilities. Everything seemed to be in order, everyone asleep, Mr Clark, Leroy, a guy Emma recognised as a security guard from the hospital and other four guys for some reason forming a tight-knit group in a corner, Mary Margaret blissfully as far apart from the Nolans as it was humanly possible, Granny and Ruby near the makeshift refreshment table they’d been manning a few hours ago, the Gold siblings huddled together under a rather soft-looking cashmere tartan blanket…

‘Trust Gold to bring his own fancy storm-survival supplies to- wait.’

She checked again, letting the light of her flashlight hover near the bed so as to not shine it directly on the two- fucking two- people sleeping in it. It was, like all other beds, barely a cot, the sort that folds over for easy storage, narrow and barely enough for one person but, somehow, both siblings had managed to climb in together, limbs tightly tangled around each other in order to fit. Belle’s head barely peaked out from the blanket, her forehead pressed against the side of her brother’s neck. Mr Gold’s chin rested atop her head, one of his hands entangled in his sister’s hair and the other one God only knew where under the blanket.

‘Of fucking course.’

The sheriff looked around, as if by some miracle she’d find someone awake to see what she was seeing. But she was, once more, the lone spectator to the Gold Siblings Incest Extravaganza. 

‘I hate this fucking town.’

in all honesty, i am all for handguns and will always defend civilians having them. However, i see no purpose of a person owning a rifle or assault rifle outside of hunting. They are to large for safe storage and easy access for self defence and can be hard to control even use a rifle and hunters undergo some stricter rules and training, which reduce the probability a crazy man gets a gun. It seems like a fair trade to sacrifice it for public purchase, leave it to hunters, but keep our handguns.

I disagree but there are people who know way more about guns than I do who can give you a better explanation. Have at it, guys.

immortal-tadashi-deactivated201  asked:

Hey Rune! A quick question, *SO SORRY IF YOU'VE ANSWERED THIS BEFORE* but how do the wings retract/expand out in the Armored!Tadashi AU?

That is not something I’ve answered before actually! Essentially the wings are stored in the back, they’re a bunch of shifting plates that compact for easy storage, and then expand and fit into place when he’s ready to fly. I hope that small step by step up there kinda shows it well enough? Alternatively I was also pitched the idea that the back of the suit is in portions that can slightly raise to allow the wings to pop out and expand. He can also just keep them out and have them folded behind his back when idle.

Bonus because I felt like doodling:
