We love using chalkboards as backdrops for displays and parties (like this one here!). So we were super excited to learn that you can create your own custom colors-and it's really easy! We first learned how from Martha Stewart whose tutorial you can read here. She recommends that you use latex paint, but we tried it out with acrylic paints with much success. Here's how you too can create your own chalkboard paint... Supplies: 1/2 cup acrylic paint (choose any color you like, or mix colors together to make the perfect shade!)

Light bulbs can be recycled in many forms and uses, although is not a new idea, check this site about reusing light bulb for chemical glassware testers , pretty cool, and here's another one using the same idea for a hanging vase and for salt and peeper containers (in french), it can be an excellent gift for Valentines (if you are in to that) or for any other day of the year.

They say it’s pretty pricey, for one thing, and it’s certainly not nutritionally superior or better tasting than lunch brought from home, and so my friends pack their kids’ lunches.
