Stay Away from Net 10 Mobile Phone Service August 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — bkknits @ 10:47 pm

Their customer service does not even rate a 0.  I will write more tomorrow.  Right now I am exhausted from being on the phone with their customer service attempting to activate a new phone.  The length of the call was only eighty minutes.  On top of that, I still don’t have service and the last code was not even valid.  Of course, today was my second call to them this week.

I’m exhausted, I must go to bed.  Details of this debacle to follow tomorrow.  Just don’t buy a net 10 phone.

Let me know your own customer service story with Net 10.


Embellishing With Iron-On Transfers August 10, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — bkknits @ 7:49 am

Embellishing on a budget can be a constant struggle.  One consideration is utilizing iron-on transfers.  I started using this simple method a few years ago, when I overheard a conversation at a boutique sale, regarding using iron-on transfers for children’s tee-shirts.  So I decided to give it a try.  You can purchase packages of iron-on transfers at fabric and craft stores.  There are transfers for both dark and light fabrics.  To date, I have only used the light fabric transfers.

Be sure and read the specific directions on the package.  You will need a computer printer, iron and a firm, flat surface such as a table.  I have a digital scrapbook program which gives me the ability to enhance and add text to my planned design.  There are also some on-line designs at some webs

Sweet Dreams

ites  such as Avery.  Don’t forget to use the mirror image format when printing your design.

I have embellished bags, tee shirts, pillow cases and wall hangings with iron-on transfers.  A simple method to bring out your creativity and complete some fine embellishments for your home and wardrobe.
