Less Product is BetterI find that using much less product works just as well to get good results. For instance, I always buy a good dish detergent but I pour 1/4 of it into an empty bottle and fill the rest with water. I wash my dishes by hand with a washcloth and the diluted detergent works great.


Pieced Scrap Fabric Yo Yos

Pieced Scrap Fabric Yo YosI have been seeing yo yos made from two or more pieces of fabric sewn together prior to cutting out the base circle and wanted to try something similar. Here are the results.

Making a Warm Fuzzies JarMy friend is a school teacher and every year I help her make items for her room. This year she had found a tip on Pinterest about making a Warm Fuzzies Jar. It's a great way to encourage the kids to work together and be kind.

Farmer's Country Hat WreathIt's a straw hat, rattan ring, and is embellished with things that you would find on the farm. I didn't have any veggies or fruit to add, but if you did, that would be perfect!


Labeling Nail Clippers and Tweezers

Labeling Nail Clippers and TweezersI am so sick of my nail clippers and tweezers going missing! I feel like I am constantly buying new ones and even when everyone has their own pair they seem to take each others too. So my trusty labeler and I went to work, labeling all of them with each person's name. Now it will be obvious whose it is.


Teflon Tape as Dental Floss

Teflon Tape as Dental FlossI was sitting at my computer desk when I sensed a tiny particle of food between two molars. Fearing losing my train of thought, I didn't get up and go to the bathroom for floss. Instead, I inventoried the items on the desk before me. What caught my eye was a roll of Teflon tape I had been using to wrap some electrical contacts.

Removing Excess Wood Stain

Removing Excess Wood StainI recently stained my son's wood play kitchen, but didn't remember to wipe off the excess stain. The surface never fully dried and remained sticky, so I needed to remove the stain and start over. I tried numerous things to remove the stain and finally tried Paint Erase Stripper Gel, which worked really well!


Corny Dumplings

Corny DumplingsI made a twist on my usual dumplings, and call them "corny dumplings". Adding a simple ingredient like sweet corn can make them more crunchy and tasty. This is good on top of a hot noodle soup or just enjoy them as is. ;-)

Asking Mom About Shaving My Legs?I am 13 years old. Everyone else in my year has started shaving their legs. I have really hairy legs and want to shave them so I can be like my friends, but I'm so scared to ask my mum because she doesn't seem like one of those chill mums. She is kinda awkward and I'm a little shy to ask! What should I do?
