I'm Baaa-aack! by Monica Ferris
After a long time away, I've decided to give RCTN another try. I write the Betsy Devonshire needlework mysteries - sixteen titles published! I'm feeling a little dry about the series, and am hoping to get refreshed hanging out here.

removing a label - on topic - sort off by Cheryl Isaak
okay - a puzzler for the chemistry types among us. Years ago I had a plastic first aid kit in the truck. It doesn't fit in the car's glove box. But dang, it's the perfect size to hold "stuff" for a travel bag. Or just to store buttons/charms etc... EXCEPT - I can not get the printed label off....
