Homemade "Vicks Vapor shower disks"

You put one of these disks in your shower, and voila thanks to the vapors in it, you're magically healed, your cold is gone, and your face is shockingly free of snot. I always used to watch the "Noxema girl" splashing water on her face and wondered how she was able to wash her face without being completely overrun with boogers. I'm the only one? Yes? Ok, moving along then... Regardless, Vicks makes these things and I'm sure they're super expensive for something that is just going to wash down your drain. You know where I'm going with this, right? Yep. I made them myself. The idea started a few weeks ago when my sweet little nephew Parker came down with Croup for like the 1,438th time.

And they couldn't be any simpler.

Disclaimer: there’s a bit of cursing in this podcast towards the end when we talk about Rick’s final line of the show and also some boob talk, so you’ve been warned!

This is a quick post to share a (not so quick) DIY I did a while ago for Alex, a snow globe made from an empty light bulb. I have a soft heart for snow globes, among chocolate, cats and various other things, and I figured it would be awesome if I managed to make one myself! I should tell you from the start, however, that this is one of the most tricky crafts I have done so far and also the only one that failed after one year of use: the tricky part it to perfectly seal the light bulb, which, apparently, I wasn’t able to do… but perhaps you will!
