Red Oak Leaves
As I looked from the kitchen window, I could see a spot of red at the edge of the woods and wondered what it was. I investigated this morning and saw that there are a few fall leaves still hanging on.
Christmas Candy Egg Carton Gift Box
One way of reusing an egg carton is by making a holiday/Christmas candy gift box.
Free Flower Pots at Lowe's Garden Center
Some garden centers like Home Depot or Lowe's have a rack for free pots. If they don't, you can ask if they have any free pots you can have. What's awesome is once in a while you may stumble across a nice ceramic, clay pot too!
Save Time, Money And Aggravation During the Holidays
Are you old-fashioned like me and still like to go to the store to see and feel the gift you are selecting? Do you still enjoy the process and thrill of finding that special gift, wrapping it, and giving it?
Crispy Loaded Potato Patties
This is a fantastic way to make use of your leftover mashed potatoes. I used skin-on mash because it tastes more like a loaded baked potato, and adds fiber. These patties are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It's a great way to turn something old into something fantastically new!
Sagittarius Constellation Card
This is such a cute minimalist card you can make for anyone as a birthday greeting card. Or, you can apply this concept with nails and wood for a nice artwork piece.
Gift Ideas for Coworkers
There are several occasions when you may wish to give a coworker a gift. This page features gift ideas for coworkers.
Didn't Have Much At Christmas
Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. One Christmas, my husband and I were really down on our luck, but I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. I also believe that Christmas isn't about charge cards and buying and material things.
Hang Wreath with Ribbon
Here is my do it yourself on how to hang a wreath with ribbon and no nails in your door! It is also really quick, taking only about 15 minutes. This is perfect if your door does not have enough clearance for a wreath hanger (applies to me), or you don't want to purchase a wreath hanger.
Having a Thrift Store Christmas
Shopping at thrift stores can be a good way to find inexpensive gifts for family and friends. Sometimes money is tight and having a thrift store christmas is the best way to celebrate the gift giving associated with Christmas.
Celebrating the Weekend After Christmas
Sometimes family schedules don't allow celebrating Christmas with everyone you would like to be there. If this sounds like your family, try celebrating the weekend after Christmas to allow for everyone's busy schedules.

I have had Twix since October. My fiancee and I are in a long distance relationship, it is hard because I always feel lonely and always missing my fiancee. He knows how much I love dogs, so he asked someone to surprise me. And yeah that was Twix.
How to Remove Gum from Fabric
It is bad enough when you step on a wad of gum and have it stick to your shoe. If it gets mashed onto some type of fabric other solutions are needed. This is a guide about how to remove gum from fabric.
Loaded Potato Skins
These made a great appetizer. Use a good variety of toppings. Everyone loves potato skins! I made a lot at once and froze them for different holiday events. These freeze very well without toppings.
Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree
This is a fun and quick way to make a little decorative Christmas tree, using stuff you might have saved in your house. I am a wooden chopstick hoarder. I find them so useful for crafts and projects. Here, I decided to rubber band them together to make this tree so I could use them again in the future!
Pickled Bean Sprouts
These pickled sprouts are typically served with certain dishes during the Chinese/Vietnamese New Year. Learn how to prepare pickled bean sprouts.
Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein
When people see spaghetti squash, usually the first recipe that comes to mind involves spaghetti sauce. I decided to give these vegetable noodles an Asian twist by turning them into chow mein. I added shrimp, cashews and veggies to mine. You can try many different meat and vegetable combinations.
Frigidaire Ice Maker Leaks Water
My side by side Frigidaire refrigerator is 12 years old and has recently started to leak water. When the water dispenser is used for a couple of minutes, water starts to leak and drip from the ice maker into the ice tray/freezer. The ice maker makes ice as normal and only leaks when the water dispenser is used.
Velvet Pants Transferred Color While Wearing
My red velvet pants, which had been washed before, rubbed the red color onto the bottom of the new ivory colored t-shirt I was wearing. The tee has a color emblem at the top so I cannot use bleach or a color remover.
Fixing Loose Crochet Stitches
I am making a hdc blanket and now in the beginning section (I am using 2 colors) the stitches have become very loose and there are some snags as well. How do I fix it? I'm almost done so I don't want to tear it out.
Senior Home Care Business Name Ideas
Should you put "senior" in your company name if they are your major target, but it is not limited to them? Also does using the word "platinum" for a senior home care/transportation business sound cold and not warm and fuzzy, although it stands for the best?
Inserting a Sliding Plate Onto a Singer Sewing Machine
I have a Singer DL17 sewing machine. Can anyone tell me how to insert a new sliding plate on my machine? The plate will not slide in.
West Virginia Christmas Charities for Children
I was needing help finding any charities in Huntington WV that help with Christmas for kids. I was recently in the hospital and I have missed the deadlines for most of the programs. I am a single mother and I have an 11 1/2 month old baby that also turns one the day after Christmas.
