To Whom It May Concern:
I am a woman. I am a frequent shopper in your stores. I am first and foremost a mother. Your recent change in policy of who you allow to use each restroom concerns me. You stated in your blog post, “We believe that everyone…deserves to be protected from discrimination and treated equally.” and “…you’ll always be accepted, respected, and welcomed at Target.” As a business owner, I do understand your right to make a stance as a company. As a parent, I will never understand why you would trade the safety of our women and children for the sake of not hurting feelings.
I realize that everyone needs to feel accepted, loved, and wanted. I know the struggles of a person struggling to find their identity. I also know that as of September 2012, a Gallup poll showed that approximately 3.4% of Americans identify as

As promised here is the Tutorial to make a iPhone/iPad (or other electronic device) stand I posted last week.
- Fabric 12″ x 9″

- Polyester Fill
- Start with a piece of fabric that is 12″ x 9″. Fold in 1/2 and press (6″ x 9″ size once folded)
- Sew a 1/4 inch seam at the top, with a 1 – 1 1/2 ” gap, and the side of the folded fabric (refer to black lines).
- Fold the fabric so that the side seam is now in the middle at the back. The top will form triangles. I press the seam open for a flat appearance later.Sew along the bottom to form a 1/4 inch seam leaving a 1 – 11/2 inch gap (refer to black lines).

The popularity of your name is likely far different today than it was the year you were born. Maybe you’re one of those men born in 1983 and named Michael, the most popular name of the year. Today, if you were given the most popular boy’s name, you’d be named Noah. The following interactive shows you which name had the same popularity in the past year and every decade since 1890 as yours did the year you were born, using newly released baby name data for 2014.
Name trends are provided by the Social Security Administration. Whenever names were tied for popularity in a given year or decade, they were assigned the same rank. This tool only searches for names of the same gender as what you entered at the top. Many names have drifted from being associated with boys to being associated with girls…

1. You have three hairstyles: down, ponytail, and bun.
2. You have one pair of shoes that you wear with 95% of your wardrobe.
3. Most of your outfits are just some combination of t-shirts and jeans.
4. This makes getting ready massively easy. What are you going to wear? Throw on the first pair of jeans and t-shirt you can find. Put on aforementioned shoes. Boom. Done.
5. Sundresses are also great because they look like you put more effort into getting ready, but you definitely didn’t.
6. You have to be very clear with your hairstylist that you need a cut that’s easy to maintain, because you’re not about that life. Your idea of styling your hair is making sure the part is nice, and if you’re feeling fancy, throwing a clip or headband up there.
7. You find make up a little terrifying. You understand…

Hello! Jess from The Sewing Rabbit here again! Not being a quilter, I usually shy away from sewing projects that require a lot of precision piecing, floor space, and of course….quilting. But when good friends of mine get pregnant, I know there is only one handmade sewing present that truly goes the distance. A baby blanket. They are some of my most cherished possessions, blankets that were given to my mother when I was born. And I watch my kids sleep every night on quilts that were given to them when they were born, knowing that they will hand those down to their children some day. Baby blankets are some of the most precious gifts we can give a new Mother. Which is why I wanted to share this DIY today. A quick and easy baby blanket, for the non-quilter.
Night Night, Darling Girl. A Non-Quilter’s Baby Blanket.
