I saw some cute quatrefoil goodies at Meijer's for my Midwestern Phi Mus.

I never see quills. However, there's blue teddy bears easily found.

Just remember exactly what you are supporting if you shop there. Maybe you're okay with making it harder to get birth control, but maybe you're not, and shopping/not shopping there is a political statement these days.

Honeychile, it's definitely worth the trip to see all the symbols! Plus you can get a head start on fall, Halloween, and even Christmas decorations!

I'm having some artwork re- matted at Hobby Lobby. They do good, affordable work.

They didn't ban birth control, but abortifacients. Please educate yourself and don't do a knee-jerk thing. I hate that the mere mention of a business turns into a political thing. Their insurance covers birth control pills. This is what their plan covers:
Male condoms
Female condoms
Diaphragms with spermicide
Sponges with spermicide
Cervical caps with spermicide
Spermicide alone
Birth-control pills with estrogen and progestin (“Combined Pill")
Birth-control pills with progestin alone (“The Mini Pill")
Birth control pills (extended/continuous use)
Contraceptive patches
Contraceptive rings
Progestin injections
Implantable rods
Vasectomies
Female sterilization surgeries
Female sterilization implants

Yep, they are sooo deprived of birth control. For reference: www.hobbylobbycase.com/faq

^What she said.

Haven't been to a Hobby Lobby in a while, but plan to go soon to snoop around! I pass two different Michael's every day, but I'd like to see what else is out there.

Don't get to HL too often since I'm not crafty and they aren't super close to me (actually, they're not that far, but the traffic is psycho to get there), but my DD is OBSESSED with peacocks and when we were there last she kept wanting all this peacock stuff. LOL If there was a sorority with a peacock mascot she'd totally want to join just by that. One of my in-laws went to Upper Iowa University and they are the Fighting Peacocks. We tease that she'll want to go there.

Our DD is obsessed with blue. LOL I'm a total girly girl and when I have my nails done, I usually ask her preference for colors. It's either a sort of blue or a peacock color. However, last time I went with red for July 4.

On a different note, has anyone has Alex and Ani charms engraved? My college best friend was a Phi Mu, but we were Rho Chis together and since been inseparable.

Dear Sister, Please do your research on the facts about pregnancy, abortifacients, what evidence Hobby Lobby is using for their reasoning that IUDs are abortifacients, and what evidence is out there in terms of this claim.

An example: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2623730

Science doesn't accept the maybes on faith.

Here's a read you could find interesting: http://ncronline.org/blogs/grace-mar...d-what-it-isnt

So all of those methods of birth control are invalid?
