Our discovery (of Bart’s discovery) of this knot couldn’t have been more serendipitous on the night before we went into large scale production for a @battlbox a while back. It works perfect as an homage to the famous Viking knotwork, and to our best knowledge, completely original. It is a variation of a Cat’s Paw knot, so Bart named it after his cat. #knot #knotwork #viking #vikings #celtic #l

Great idea for kids!!!! Buy a ceramic white plate (dollar store) and let the kids make a picture with sharpie pens, then  bake @350 for 30 minutes. PS, Mr. Clean Magic eraser will take off any unbaked sharpie mistakes. Cut a small piece off and use tweezers for a tiny eraser, or use the whole sponge to erase an entire design until perfect enough to bake on permanently.

THIS REALLY WORKS AND LAUNDRY IS SUPER SOFT!!!   Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel.    Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days!    You must make sure it dries completely!    After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again.
