Looking for Work From Home Jobs?
Please encourage your cousin to visit a local pro-life (make sure its pro-life--her baby deserves to live!) CPC (crisis pregnancy center). They provide loving help for moms and babies. I have worked with some for years, and can tell you they offer hope. Quite...

Great ideas, all! Thanks so much! :)
Homemade Ensure Type Nutrition Shake?
Im looking for the same and just did a quick search of homemade Ensure. One of the suggestions was Carnation Instant Breakfast drink mix. I would think the taste would be similar, though I dont know how it compares nutritionally. You may also want to do an...

Removing a Perspiration Stain from Clothing?
This sometimes (but not always) works for me: Dampen the area, then sprinkle on a little baking soda. Squirt on some blue Dawn dish soap. Rub gently together and let sit a few minutes, then launder as usual. Do not put in the dryer, as it may set the stain...
Removing an Odor from an Antique Doll?
Maybe try: airing doll outside out of direct sun, but in a safe place with much air circulation --seal in bag with coffee grounds --seal in bag with fabric softener sheet (the free and clear kind was suggested) --keep baking soda near the doll when storing...
My House Reeks of Skunk Odor?
I can somewhat relate! This winter we had a horrific septic tank smell in the house. Long story there, but we had some repairs done and they believe a vent was partially blocked by all the snow/ice. Anyway, I aired out whenever the smell was the strongest, and...
Using Rice Filled Bags for Back Pain?
Not sure I fully understand the discussion here, but I use these bags frequently, and would suggest getting more than 1 bag so you could microwave one while using the other. This would allow a constant supply of heat.
Mosquitoes Biting My Dog?
Cant vouch for this, but Ive heard you can put a few drops of cider vinegar in the dogs water bowl and also give the dog a bit of garlic. Would caution you to check with your vet before doing this, however. I just read these ideas elsewhere, so I have no idea...
Make Doll House from Old Bookcase
This is a really cute idea. Major dollhouse lover here, and what an easy way to make one!
Speak Aloud to Help You Remember
I do this, too! It is helpful to me when I have to go in the basement and remember a few things. So far the men in the white coats havent carted me off! :) Thanks for sharing.
Gnats on Plants
We have those irritating bugs in our house, too. Could you be specific about what you used to kill them--what type of bug bomb? Thanks for any help.
Remedies for Grey Hair?
I like henna, and use Light Mountain brand, which I buy at a local food co-op. It isnt that expensive, and I only use 1/2 package at a time. I usually apply it every 3 months or so, and I have quite dark brown hair. It is messy, though, so just put newspaper...
First Holy Communion Speech Ideas?
How about a talk about a child saint? Maybe specifically a patron saint of first communicants? I believe there are a few such saints. Perhaps do a Google search on patron saints of communicants or such. God bless your child and your family!
Inexpensive Activity Ideas?
Join (or start!) a young adult group at your local church. This is a great way to meet decent guys who have values, which is a rare find these days! Best of luck and God bless you.
Activities to Overcome Boredom?
Awhile back, I discovered if I was feeling bored, it was a nudge to pray for someone. I also try to do things for others like send cards or phone someone whos lonely. I also try to get into my hobbies more, and have found that by doing this, I seem to be fulfilling...
Making Doll House Miniatures from Recycled Materials?
You can often get inexpensive remnants from places like Jo-Ann Fabric or other fabric stores, or in fabric departments in places like WalMart.
Salad Bar Garden Bed
Awesome idea! Thanks for sharing. :)
Bookcase Doll House?
Yes, this is a great idea! I once read that you can make your own Modgepodge by watering down glue; however, Ive never tried it. Might want to experiment.
Sharing Garden Flowers
Wow, what a thoughtful idea! Ill bet you aunt loves this and loves you for thinking of her. God bless!
Gardening: Wood Shavings in the Garden
I believe pencils contain graphite; not lead. We also have to remember our super hyper media likes to make a major case of everything they can, including the dangers of lead. You would have to sit and literally eat real lead for a long time before it would...
Make a Medical Journal
What a great idea! I had my physical last week and I did write down my medications, date of last menstrual period, vitamins and supplements I take, questions to ask the doctor, etc. Im sure it not only saves me time, but the doctor as well.
