    • Happy New Year to you as well, Winnie! And yes, thank you – had some problems with that linky, but it’s fixed now! Thanks for letting me know it wasn’t working for you :)

  1. Those microwavable rice heating pads is also the first I am going for because I used to have one and it was awesome. My dog chewed it up and I have been wanting another one and didn’t know how to make it since the other was a gift. There are so many great links here I could spend all day…and probably will!
