If you do any kind of crafts, or have lots of smaller things you need to keep separated, you need organizers. There are all kinds of organizers that you can buy, but if you are like me, you find they are never the right size or shape or have the right number of compartments. It is so much better to make your own and it's easy to do. Let me show you how!
So many people are home from work these days and they are not used to having so much free time. Boredom is rampant! If you are looking for some fun things to do that don't require going out, I have some great suggestions!
How to Make Chalk Paint
Today I have a simple, easy to make recipe for chalk paint. Why spend the higher price to buy chaulk paint for your country project? Make your own! It is not complicated or expensive!
Black Cat Pet Toy
I have a cat that is really feisty. He is an 18 month old ginger cat and he is as devilish as he is lovable! He loves to play, but having all his claws (four wheen drive, as my husband calls it) he is very hard on his toys. He can rip a catnip mouse to bits in record time. He also has shredded his little cat house, along with several scratching posts. After a while it started to get a little expensive, replacing toys and playthings for the little furball!
I have been making my own weed killer for years. Ever since I heard that Round up has a big link to cancer, I decided I would use only weed killers with commonly known ingredients. My homemade formula does not work as well as chemicals, but the trade off is more than worth it. However, recently I have changed one ingredients in my homemade weed killer that I have been using for the last few years. That change makes a big difference!
If you are anything like me, food storage is always a problem. It either takes up a lot of shelf space or room in your freezer. There is one method that takes up very little room on the shelf and no room in your freezer. Dehydrating! It is easy to do and takes up so little space, you will not believe how much food you can store in a cabinet or closet shelf. Grow your own vegetables or buy them in season and you will be eating them all winter long.
How to Freeze Eggs
Sometimes you find yourself with too many eggs to use before they spoil. Maybe there was a great sale, or your hens have been overly prolific in laying or you bought a dozen forgetting that you already had a couple dozen. Regardless of how it happened, it does happen. What do you do ?
Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer
If you use hand sanitizer on a regular basis, it can get to be rather expensive. Why buy it, when you can easily make it?
Have you ever looked at the ingredients on store bought hand sanitizer? Do you have any idea what most of the ingredients are? I don't! Do you really want to put that stuff on your skin on a regular basis, not knowing what chemicals and preservatives they throw in with the goal of a long shelf life being more important to them than the health and safety of your family's skin ? Not to mention that some companies still test sanitizer on animals, a practice I would never want to support. Make your own, it's better in every way.
Why would you want to wrap gifts without bows, you ask? Well, there are several reasons, but why I had to do it was because I have a feisty 10 month old orange kitten that simply won't leave bows alone. So unless I want a bunch of bedraggled, ripped and toothmarked Christmas bows, I had to go another route. Another reason would be to save money. Ribbon is expensive, even bags of premade bows are as inexpensive as they used to be. Going without bows saves money! A third reason is that it is impossible to stack gifts for transport if they have bows on them. You can try, but I guarantee by the time you get them to the desired location, they bows will be mashed, ripped or missing completely. Do yourself a favor and go bowless! With a little ingenuity and glue, you will have gorgeous packages and the recipients will be amazed!
Everyone that cooks has had that moment when you are making a dish and realize that you don't have one of the ingredients. You have two choices: pack yourself off to the store and get it (not a great choice for me as the closest grocery store is at least 10 miles away) or you can try to make due with a substitute, not knowing how it will make your dish turn out or taste. Neither solution is ideal. What if I told you that sometimes there is a third option?
