Doubling a Baking Recipe
I have a recipe for a loaf cake, using raisins, brown sugar, etc. It gives the ingredients for 1 loaf, I want to make 2 loaves but I am not sure if it would come out right if I doubled everything in the recipe.
Kitkat is our 2 year old domestic short haired cat. We got our cat when she was 4 weeks old.

Trash Can Lid Bird Bath
You can make a bird bath with a trash can lid by turning it upside down and attaching it to the top of a pedestal. A short fence post works well for the pedestal and metal trash can lids seem to work the best for the bath. It's easier to attach the lid if you hacksaw off the handle. Decorate the lid with paint.
Chopsticks as Knitting Needles
In a pinch, you can use chopsticks as knitting needles. Just sharpen the tips of the chopsticks in a pencil sharpener then dull them a little so they aren't too sharp.
Removing a Broken Window
Apply pieces of masking tape to the window in a crisscross pattern on both sides of the window. Then gently tap around the outer edge of the window with a hammer until the glass breaks out. The tape should help keep the window from shattering but be sure to wear protective gloves.
Tongue Depressor Sander
Cut a piece of sandpaper to fit on the end of a tongue depressor or Popsicle stick and glue it on. Then trim off any excess sandpaper. Let the glue dry and you have a handy little sander for sanding hard-to-reach places.
Update: Duck Themed Bathroom
About a month ago I posted a request for help with a bathroom remodel project. Mocha/Tan tiles in a toddler bathrom with Ducky accessories. I hope all of the wonderful people that gave me suggestions see this. I took the idea from camo_angels to use a beach theme. I stenciled shells in the same color as the floor tiles and it looks great.
Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar
I made "gifts in a jar" for family and friends for Christmas and for Birthdays. I have 4 children and each one of them do something to help. It's a family kinda thing for us.

Other Uses for Pot Holder Loom
I just bought my daughter one of those looms you can make pot holders with. Is there anything else that can be made with this loom besides pot holders? I've heard of purses, rugs, etc. but I can't find anything on the internet.
Uses for Dry Cleaner Bags
I have accumulated a lot of dry cleaner plastic bags. I hate to just throw them away as I know there must be something I can do with them.
Rust Stain on Laminate Surface
I just noticed a large rust stain from a paint can stored in the bottom of our bathroom cabinet. The cabinet bottom is a laminate type material. Any suggestions on how to remove the rust without destorying the laminate?
Book About Kids Taking Over The World
I can't find title of children's book. I am looking for a 6th grade book about all adults over 12 dying and children having to take over the world and fend for themselves. It was based on a girls view.
Making a Footbag or Hacky Sack
My little man would like for me to make him a "Hackysack". Does any one know how this is done? This is a small crochet ball, filled with rice, I think. Would anyone happen to know just how these are constructed?
I want to paint my walls with textured paint, but I have no idea how to. I did a search here once, but didn't bookmark it and I can't find it again!
Tile Cleaner Stained My Tiles
How do I get stains off of tile. I had what looked to be grease stains in front of my dishwasher in my kitchen, nothing I used would get rid of them so I bought "Tile'n'All" which contains hydrofluoric acid and followed directions, now there are greyish white spots where the liquid was applied. Do I need to replace these?

A young man was having some money problems, and needed $200 to get his car fixed and road-worthy again. But had run out of people to borrow from. So, he calls his parents via the operator, and reverses the charge and says to his dad, "I need to borrow two hundred dollars."
