UCreate - It's a good day to create!
For the Christmas season I made my children I SPY Christmas Ornaments. My kids loved them so much that I thought I would make some I SPY EASTER EGGS for their Easter Baskets. When I found some big plastic eggs with clear tops at Walmart I was thrilled! These would be absolutely perfect for an I SPY toy. After a quick trip to the craft store, I was ready to get started. It’s a simple and quick DIY project that your kids or grandkids or students will love…

Lil Blue Boo - Part 5 I’m scared to see the movie Wolf, because I’m worried it might trigger PTSD. I read the recent NYT article for For the Love of Money and I had flashbacks of an earlier life. It would take years to tell the whole story. It’s all a huge circus under a tent called “investment banking.” But I can condense some of it into a quick short story…with a few pages from my journal at the time: DIY paper doll faces and speech bubbles ⇆ bloomize “Smile”, “Hello”, “Thinking of you”, “Be happy” and “Uh-oh” were the expressions that came to me as I made these cuter-than-I-expected faces and assigned a speech bubble to all of them, except one.

Birthday Cinnamon Rolls – Using The Pioneer Woman Ree Drumond’s Recipe I’ve had had so many requests for my cinnamon roll recipe that I had to let you all know that it’s not mine, it’s the work of Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. And it is insanely delicious. I started making cinnamon rolls using this recipe a few years ago, and they have become a holiday staple. Ree’s recipe makes a TON of cinnamon rolls, which works well if you want to give them out or if you want to lock the doors and see how many cinnamon rolls one person can consume. The good news is that they freeze very well, which makes this giant recipe not such a bad idea. I give pans and pans of these out at Christmas, and I usually give them away frozen, with a bag of frosting, allowing the recipient to bake them when they want them.

How to Use a [BUSTED] Cell Phone to Meet 5 Basic Survival Needs Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Creek Stewart. Last week we talked about the many survival uses of the tampon. But unless he specifically packed one in a bag or car, a man’s unlikely to have one on him in a pinch. So today we’re going to explore the survival uses of an everyday item you’re much more likely to have with you in an emergency: your cell phone. Ever leave home without your cell phone?
