DIY Wallflowers Scented Plugin - Holy Crickey DIY Deodorizing Carpet Powder I plan on having a lot of foot traffic through my house for the holidays, and this year is the first year we will have a dog in the house.

Here’s the basic recipe I am using: Ingredients: 1/2 cup baking soda1/4 cup borax15-20 drops essential oils {I’m using cinnamon to give it a more holiday feel} Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.

Four Homemade Cleaners This was easier than I thought it would be. One of Betsy’s goals for the year was to ditch some of our standard cleaners that we use around the house and make them! Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about this project mainly because I wasn’t sure that homemade cleaners would really get the job done. And my lovely wife is a bit of a neat freak so there’s no way she would use something that didn’t perform well. So a couple of weekends ago she went out and bought a few staple ingredients and some empty spray bottles and we spent a few minutes mixing up four different homemade cleaners that have since replaced 90% of the cleaners we use around the house. For the last few weeks we’ve been using them now and I’ve been so impressed by how well they are working, I thought I’d share them all with you in case any of you are interested in ditching the chemicals.

Delightfully Noted Happy 2012! Did you have a good time ringing in the New Year? You are mistaken if you believe the holidays are over my friends because today I am celebrating my BIRRRTHday! As I reflect back on my, ahem, sixteen-plus years there are times that I doubt I've learned anything {like driving through our garage a few years ago} & then there are those times when I marvel at how far I have come {like owning my own business}. I know, mostly for women, there are doubts & fears about growing older but for me one of the plus sides of blowing out birthday candles is that little fact that every year you become more & more "unapologetically" you. I've learned in my sixteen-plus years that it's okay............... *that I'll never be a morning person. *to be a grown adult & still want your mommy when your heads hanging over the porcelain god. *to be 16-plus year old & still have no idea what you want to be when you grow up. *to never know how the hell to fold a fitted sheet.

4 DIY Natural Drain Cleaners By Cris Carl, Hometalk Having a clogged sink begs the old chestnut about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure. There are a lot of things that should never go down a drain, especially if you have a septic system. Now, for a dose of reality, no one is perfect. I have two drains that tend to clog more often in my house, the tub and the laundry sink. The problem with commercial drain cleaners is they corrode pipes, are bad for septic systems, are toxic to ground water, and they can damage the materials that your sink or tub are made of. Before you try a DIY drain cleaner It’s best to remember to use your DIY drain cleaners routinely before the clogs happen. Just like in the Heimlich maneuver, look first to see if you can actually see the clog. Baking soda, the top DIY drain cleaner The most commonly used DIY drain cleaner is using one cup of baking soda and one cup of cider vinegar. Baking soda with lemon juice Salt, borax, and vinegar I found this formula, 1/4 C. salt, 1/4 C.

Here are a selection of 40 Hong Kong food items that make us rather not live than live without: 1. Hong Kong-style French toast Unlike its more restrained Sunday brunch counterpart, Hong Kong-style French toast is for when you're stressed out and looking for a warm, deep-fried hug. It's two pieces of toast slathered with peanut butter or kaya jam, soaked in egg batter, fried in butter and served with still more butter and lots of syrup. Try it at Lan Fong Yuen, 6 Gage Street, Central, tel +852 2850 8683. 2. On paper, an egg sandwich doesn't sound very noteworthy. No big deal, right? 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

How to Make Clothing Buttons from Shrink Plastic&8230; | scissors.paper.wok - StumbleUpon This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment Some handy notes: 1. single hole, hole punch (like this one here). 2. 3. Okay.. lets get started! Tracing tips: You can use either coloured pencils or permanent pens. Words must be writted backwards in order to be readable. Shrinking the buttons: To shrink the buttons, you can use an oven or a heat gun (the kind used for embellishing). After the buttons have twisted and twirled, and are LYING FLAT, it’s time to take them out. Note: If the skrinking is taking too long, you may need to turn your oven up. Here’s a short little stop-motion to make sure you’ve got the gist of how easy this is! Shrink Paper {here} Circle Punch {here} Hole punch {here} Pens {here} Update: I’ve made a video to show how to shrink the buttons using a craft embellishment heat gun. Kimanh Hi my name's Kimanh.
