But kids love to create with non-toys, even candy remember.Read on.. Like many kids, Big S loves her sugar candies. With candy comes the need to keep reminding that the wrappers need to go to the trash bin. The girls love to throw them up and pretend they are butterflies. We made butterflies & flowers To quiet them down, I took the wrappers and started twisting them to make simple butterflies. Smooth out the wrappers and give them a good twist. We made some cute, colorful butterflies. Big S squeals: Flowers mommy ! I saw the pack of candy and said ” Let’s make flowers with these” Big S: No. Did she just say candy is her food?

mental_floss Blog & Talking Pictures: Love and Marriage Talking Pictures is a spankin'-new column in which, every week or so, I'll post an array of fascinating found snapshots that have writing on them, all arranged around a particular theme. I discovered them either in swap meets or flea markets or in the vast collections of snapshot-obsessed friends -- most of whom had never bothered to turn their photos over to check whether anything interesting was written on the backs. For me, words are what make old photos come to life. A few scribbled lines can turn a blurry black-and-white snapshot of people who seem a million miles and a million years away into an intensely personal sliver of experience that anyone can relate to. This week it's all about love. Let's begin with flirting, which hasn't changed nearly as much, judging from the photo above, as the clothes people wear to picnics. The long, trailing question-mark says it all, I think: One finds a lot of mash notes when combing through old photos. To my weakness from Bob Love Always Awwwww:

How to make a good coffee? How to make a good coffee?Hibiscus Half & half Sunrise Heart Encyclopedia of Earth Bearing Witness, Losing Her Life I got to know Camille Lepage on my first trip to South Sudan last summer. A jaunty young Frenchwoman who tooled around the rutted dirt roads of Juba on the back of a beat-up old motorcycle, she was hoping to work with me on the story I had come to town to cover, and I had received a slew of email messages from her. When we met at the outside patio at the Logali House, a popular haunt for journalists, I had to tell her I had already been assigned to work with another photographer. Optimistic, generous, hard-working and relentless are all qualities I would come to associate with Camille. The news traveled quickly through the tight-knit community of photojournalists and correspondents in Africa on Tuesday that Camille had been killed. The French presidency said in a statement: “All means necessary will be used to shed light on to the circumstances of this murder and to find her killers.” Shedding light on a tragic event in a faraway place was the sort of thing you expected of Camille.

Homemade Coffee Creamer My friends tell me the one thing they can’t give up is their flavored coffee creamer. I can understand. Creamy, sweet, smooth, with all sorts of different flavors to choose from. The problem is the ingredients. Have you ever read what’s in those bottles? They are full of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils. So if you’re hooked on store-bought creamer then today’s your day. Next time you have friends over for a gathering, make a few batches of homemade coffee creamer, put them in cute bottles and have a coffee bar. A great alternative to regular coffee is herbal coffee. *Since posting these recipes in September 2010, I have developed a few new recipes: Caramel Coffee Creamer and Honey Vanilla Coffee Creamer, Sugar Free and Dairy Free Coffee Creamer **Teeccino contains barley, so if you need to avoid gluten an organic decaf would be a better option.
