Gooey Gummy CandyMany kids love the gummy candy you buy in the store, so why not make your own for less money. You can also use small Halloween cookie cutters to make them into cute little shapes for Halloween!
Baked Cheese Olives Here we go again with my love of jalapenos and cheese, but this one has the added wonderful flavor of green olives. :) Make a double batch and freeze to bake at a later time for a quick snack.
Keep No More Than 30 TopsThis is an idea I've been slowly implementing. If you have 30 tops (many women have 150 or more including tees, tanks, sweaters, sweatshirts, long sleeved, short sleeved, dress blouses, cotton blouses, etc.), you could wear each top ONLY ONCE A MONTH for an entire year!
Cleaning A Stinky VacuumI too have had to deal with stinky vacuums and smells in carpeting from cats and dogs. The best thing that I have found was the enzyme odor cleaner at the local Oreck store.
Skunk Odor Recipe Works for Pet StainsA recipe for cutting through skunk odor is great for cutting through pet stains as well. It's a mixture of peroxide, baking soda, and dish detergent. I mix a small bottle of peroxide, half a cup of baking soda, and a couple squirts of Dawn.
Using Up Overripe FruitWhenever you have fruit that is close to going bad, instead of throwing it away, just cut, chop, or puree it in a blender and freeze in appropriate size containers for future baking or for yummy smoothies.
Halloween: Bingo CostumeI play a lot of Bingo and this was really fun to dress up in and go play bingo. I saved all my cards that I used for the last few weeks. I put them in between plastic. I then taped them all over me and I went to Bingo as a Bingo card.
Remove Batteries From Disposable CamerasDid you know there is an AA size battery, and sometimes a AAA battery, inside disposable cameras that is used to power the camera flash?
Jess (Jack Russell/Beagle)Jess is about 2 1/2 years old. She is a Jack Russell/Beagle mix. Someone bought her at a pet store, and she was left there alone a lot. She chewed up all of his computer wires and pulled TP all over his house.
Scenery: Loch Ussie (Scotland)Loch Ussie in the Highlands of Scotland. I took this photo from the top of Knockfarrel, near the cottage we had rented for our holiday.
Use Recycled Drink Tubes For OrganizerRecently, I had the opportunity to organize a friend's pantry. To minimize space, I emptied all her drink mixes into a basket, leaving me with these wonderful tubes. I decided to take them and make a desk top organizer for my craft room.
Sparky (American Shetland Pony)Our pony's name is Sparky. The granddaughter wanted to name him Sparkle but it was a boy, so she named him Sparky. He is probably 12 years old and is an American Shetland pony. His color is Strawberry roan. We bought him from a friend about 9 years ago.
Get To Know Your NeighborsFor so much of my life I didn't bother pursuing friendships with neighbors because I thought I probably would have nothing in common with them.
Store Bread In Cereal BagsReuse cereal plastic bags to keep bread, buns, etc. fresh. They are very durable, too good to waste!
Handy ToteA handy tote can be made to carry any number of things. If you have a heavy object to lift, but you can't get a good grip on it, the weight can be distributed between two people, as my husband and I found out the day we moved a concrete bird bath.
Sausage Biscuit and Gravy SandwichOne evening I cooked sausage patties, eggs and biscuits for supper. The next morning I was putting my husband's lunch together and decided to use some of the leftover gravy on the biscuit and sausage sandwiches instead of mayonnaise.
Store Corn Cob Holders on Dry SpongeI read about a neat way to keep up with corn on the cob holders that I thought I'd pass along the tip. After they are washed, stick them into a clean dry sponge until the next use.
Memory Book as a Milestone Birthday GiftWe just gave my mother-in-law a Memory Book for her 70th Birthday. We sent emails and letters to everyone in her email, address list and phone book. We asked them to write letters remembering funny or touching stories about her and how they met her.
Painting Clay PotsI like to dress up terra cotta pots with acrylic paints. One technique is to use three colors or more and a sponge. You only need a small squirt of each color, making it great for using those leftovers.
Recycled Painted WindowInstead of turning an old window into a decorative mirror, I decided to smudge up the glass with grey acrylic paint. I then finger painted "milk" bottles in each pane. This went well with my country kitchen/vintage decor.
