Natural wood photo display

Natural Wood Photo DisplayI was given long wood planks with bark attached to the sides. I decided to make photo displays out of them after I cut the planks down to a manageable size.


Tucker in window.

In Memory of Tucker (Tabby Cat)I got him from our local shelter, when he was about 12 weeks old, in 2005. He was my sweet boy! He knew he wasn't supposed to be in the kitchen window, but he looked so cute, I let him stay. He died in 2015, and I still miss him.


Check Your Receipt for Incorrect Prices

Check Your Receipt for Incorrect PricesI just found out that my supermarket has a policy that will give an incorrectly scanned item to you for free. The store will give you a $10 discount on items that are more than $10. Because of this knowledge, I got a $7.99 package of burgers for free.

Cleaning a Stovetop

Cleaning a StovetopThis morning, the weather was cool and I thought it would be a good time to clean the top of the kitchen stove. The large eye gets used a lot and over a period of time the stove top looks awful with baked on grease around the stove eye. To remove it, I use Easy Off Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner.


Saving Hibiscus or Daylily Seeds

Saving Hibiscus or Daylily SeedsTo get the identical plant, you actually need to divide the plant. If you save the seeds, the flowers may be different than the parent plant.


Temporary Tattoos on Plastic

Temporary Tattoos on PlasticThose temporary tattoos go well on recycled plastic crafts. If you have any old tattoos, you can use them to decorate your plastic recycled projects.


Using Reusable K-Cups

Using Reusable K-CupsIf you like the convenience of a Keurig machine, but not the price and waste of the cups, the reusable K-cup is a great alternative. It is dishwasher safe. However, you can easily rinse it out in the sink. I compost my coffee grounds instead of throwing them away.


finished pumpkin

Nylon PumpkinMake a nylon pumpkin using old pantyhose or footies. This can be a great project for fall.
