Yes, I am a nerd. I came up with a brilliant idea for a Harry Potter t-shirt and I couldn't resist. "Expecto Patronum!" However, you can make whatever kind of design you want with a freezer paper stencil.
When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness.
Thanks to the wonderfully crafty team over at Etsy - we can now make our very own sailor's knot bracelets! I've always wanted to know how to do this- but as it was, my Mom signed me up for Brownies rather than Boy Scouts- thus I honed in on sewing patches rather than tying knots. But now with this easy tutorial, you too can be a master-knotter. Imagine the possiblilities!
Let’s not kid ourselves: The majority of Americans look forward to Cinco de Mayo for the simple fact that it’s an excuse to drink.

Tonic gives a hint of bitterness to either gin or vodka. Seltzer water adds body to flavored vodkas for a light, low-key sipper and sparkle to a heavy drink. Cola is a classic, and goes equally well with whiskey as it does with rum. (If you want to be fancy, squeeze a wedge of lime into your rum and cola and call it a Cuba Libre.) Ginger ale and ginger beer go well with bourbon and blended whiskey. If you like it sweet, use ginger ale--for more spice, use ginger beer.

Cinco de Mayo will soon be here (May 5th for those non-Spanish speakers). Though it’s a Mexican holiday, here in Southern California, Cinco de Mayo celebrations are pretty widespread… mostly an excuse to eat Mexican food and partake in downing a few margaritas. We had a party last year for that very reason. These Margarita Cupcakes are fun for a Cinco de Mayo party, but they surely can be made for any festive, adult occasion… emphasis on adult .
I have mentioned before that the reason we moved to Colorado 2 months ago , was for my husband to complete several clinical rotations (for PA school) before graduating next spring. And lucky us, we were able to bum my parents basement apartment off of them while staying here. ( Thanks Mom and Dad! ) The basement has everything we need; bedrooms, a bathroom, a family room……even a kitchen.
