Ready or not, Christmas is coming. In fact, it’s almost upon us which, of course, means there are stockings to stuff. I searched the blogosphere and found 5 cute (and easy) crafts that you can quickly create to fill ‘em up.

    I'M A BIG HGTV FAN! MAKING CANDLES IS ALWAYS FUN! I SAVE MY 1/2 GALLON CARTONS FROM JUICES OR WHATEVER. I BUY AN INEXPENSIVE CANDLE, AT LEAST 4 INCHES TALL. 1 BAG OF ANY TYPE OF COLORFUL POTPOURRI. I THEN CUT THE CARTON TO THE SIZE OF THE CANDLE. MELT THE CANDLE WAX W/LG PAN CONTAINING WATER, IN THAT A SMALLER PAN WITH THE WAX TO BE MELTED. NO NEED FOR HIGH HEAT! SET CANDLE IN CENTER OF CONTAINER, ADD POTPOURRI, POUR IN MELTED WAX! REFRIGERATE UNTIL SET! IT'S FUN AND EASY! KIDS LOVE IT! MAKES A COOL GIFT!

    ANOTHER NICE IDEA! AT THE HEALTH FOOD STORES YOU CAN GET THESE GREAT LITTLE BAGS W/A CINCH. USUALLY FOUND IN MUSLIN. USE DRIED HERBS FROM YOUR GARDEN, FILL THE BAG, CINCH CLOSED. DECORATE AS DESIRED.
    MAKES A GREAT SACHET FOR GRANDMA OR ANYONE!

    Hello ~ I am a long time fan of HGTV on TV and the Internet. I do not understand why HGTV has not given
    respect nor publicity to Jennifer Bertrand. She did win a season of Design Star, she is adorable and comes
    across on TV as sincere and caring. Her painting is amazing and creative. I find Antonio only mildly entertaining and you have given a show to Dan who did not win. What's UP?? I feel that Jennifer should be
    featured.
    This may not be the appropriate place for this comment but did not know where to submit it.

      Karen, I agree with you. Whatever happened to Jennifer? I found her personality adorable and her mall murals wonderful.

    Hi guys,

    I ordered a 12 pages paper from this site and they have first given me a horrible paper; full of grammatical mistakes and broken sentences and then they have deducted 30% of my payment. This is ridiculous! I asked the reason of charging 30% for nothing, and they told me that this is their sites policy, damningly ********! How cruel it is that first you are first going to make fake claims and then you charged 30% of it, if your claims proven to be bogus.

    Just check this out:

    19877_Order_3_.pdf
    (Preview version of your order) — a pdf version I got from them from one of their writers check out whether it's okay or not!

    And then I uploaded my own paper to let them know that the paper written by their writer is ''Gllorious"; God they don't have any writer / editor to check the quality of papers they produced. They just checked it whether it has passed plagiarism or not, let alone the other important things the essay must contain.

    (Microsoft Word Document) — my own paper!

    Anyhow, this site is totally a scam, its running by those who even don't know how to write an essay. I am really depressed by such pathetic service they are providing.

    Chao

    That link works only for YOU. For anyone else, it redirects to the crooks' home page.

    damn, what do I do to show you guys that horrible report they produced for me and charged me 30% for nothing? I was first sent to a glamor word by their 'sweet claims', then shocked by seeing the report produced by one of their writer and then my all hopes got dematerialised after paying 30% for nothing (almost $67). Should I paste the whole conversation over here? They are some black dots on the freelance industry and trying their level best to use the money of innocent customers.

    lol this forum is soooo biased! I've used many times, and I've either gotten a's or b's. I never bothered to ask for my money back when i got b's because im content. Now of course, I would never order a 12 page essay(I usually order 4-6), thats just retarded..I wouldn't spend more than 50$ on an essay..I'd just do it myself. So muhammad stop complaining, dont be too lazy, you have months to do a 12 page essay, I had a 10 page essay last semester and I was able to finish in a week (due in 2 months) and got an A. The only reason I'm posting is because I was trying to find a coupon code for the essay i'm about to order and saw one in here but it doesnt work anymore…I've tried going through all their source code but cant find one freaking coupon -.- anyone know of any?

    - absolute worst experience!! i ordered a paper from them 2 WEEKS in advance of the date it was due, to ensure enough time. i specifically told the writer which book she needed to read, and that she needed to summarize it. I checked up with the writer various times to see how the progress was going, and she ensured me that it was fine. A few days before the paper is due she sends it to me. At first everything seemed fine. Then I typed in a few sentences into google's search engine. THE ENTIRE PAPER WAS COPY AND PASTED from a book reviewer's website who summarized the book. SENTENCE TO SENTENCE was the same. I was obviously extremely angry considering this company prides what they call "100% plagiarism free" and "a new paper". Are they for real?! WTF! Everyone knows what would have happened had I not checked and actually handed that in. Needless to say they were "so sorry for my inconveniences" which is complete ********, since I denied the paper and they offered me a 70% refund. I was disgusted, and explained to them how the paper was none done by the writer, nor was the book ever read by her!! They did not care.. I did not get the full refund, and I did the paper myself in 2 days. F*** this company.. what a waste of time and money! Who knows if there is better out there, but I would absolutely without a doubt avoid these scumbag liars! Good luck everyone..
