Make a Customized Silhouette T-Shirt Of Your Kids Email Kids grow up quickly; so I’m always looking for new ways to celebrate these fleeting days while my little ones are still small. Recently, I came up with a fun project that captures a moment in a child’s life, and creates a unique fashion statement. For this project, you’ll need: 1. First, you’ll need to take an appropriate photo for the project. After you’ve taken a photo you’re pleased with, load it into your computer. Tape your printed photo onto a sunny window and tear off a similar-size sheet of freezer paper. Next, use your X-Acto Knife to cut out the silhouettes. Now that your stencil is cut, it’s time to adhere the stencil to your shirt. Next, tear off a piece of freezer paper that is slightly larger than your stencil. Paint a thin layer of your chosen paint over the stencil. Wait several hours (overnight is best) to allow the paint to dry. Set paint according to manufacturer’s suggestions, and enjoy your cool and priceless keepsake shirt!

What we’ve already got is with us now, aching to be noticed and delved into. We need to make time for all the people and places and projects where our hearts have set a significant mooring. Our loving connections beget meaningful moments, like a magical plant that blossoms all year round. © Reprinted by permission. See Dr.

Let Me See Your ‘Grill’: Barbecuing – For Better or For Worse? Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 It’s that time of year again! The grills are coming out and the steaks, burgers, and brats are plentiful. It’s enough to send any vegan off the deep end. Unfortunately, as it seems with all good things, grilling comes with a serious health risk – cancer. How can something as innocent as chowing on a freshly grilled, grassfed rib-eye be a health hazard? Grilling creates two types of potentially cancer causing agents; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and heterocyclic amines (HCAs). I know exactly what you’re thinking… EVERYTHING causes cancer these days, right? I joke! Marinate! Here’s a handy chart to help guide your grilling and meat cooking adventures: **USDA guidelines are valuable food safety targets. **Restaurant guidelines often result in better finished quality and less chance of meats being overdone. The coals are hot and the meat is marinating. About Amy Kubal
