Wood Pallet Bookshelf - a mini tutorial When I saw this project on Pinterest, I knew I just *had* to make it for Will's room. Luckily, my hubby was able to get his hands on a wood pallet for me. When he brought it home, our conversation went something like this: "Here's the wood pallet you wanted for that bookshelf." I'm pretty sure he's done trying to understand me when it comes to my crafting and DIY projects. So I loaded my new pallet in my car and headed to my Dad's garage to borrow his tools. But in all honesty, this is a pretty basic woodworking project and if you have a saw and a drill, you can totally do it sans husband. Some wood pallets are slightly different, but they generally look like a variation of this: One pallet should make four shelves. Next, you'll need to measure the inside of the bottoms of your newly made shelves so that you can cut 2x4's to size and screw them in place. To finish them off, I took a little electric sander and tried to get the edges and corners as smooth as possible. Molly

5 minutes nail polish removal tutorial Disclaimer: I am definitely recommending this method. I do not claim this as my own. I learnt it from Deborah Lippmann so I'll recognise her as the original source. However, the true origin of this amazing 5 minutes method is yet to be discovered. Nail polishes are terrific when you don't need to remove them. One bright and sunny day, I was browsing through my favourite nail blog (because I have no life), I came across a Youtube clip of Deborah Lippmann showing her quick and easy way of removing nail polish. Step one. Now grab your ball. It should come apart easily as the ball itself is produced by ravelling a strip like a snail shell. Split your strip down the middle vertically into 2 strips. You can continue to split but I like mine with a little bulk. Keep tearing until you have a lot. Now you have the cotton pieces ready. Nice and smelly. Press the wet CP onto your nail gently. Do the same for all the other fingers. Leave them on your nails for 1-2 minutes, give or take.

NBC News - Breaking News & Top Stories - Latest World, US & Local News Make a Butter “Pen” to Quickly Grease Baking Dishes and Pans Another example of using a dispenser for a use not intended... I was visiting my brother last year and went to cook breakfast for us. There was an olive oil dispenser next to the sink, so I liberally added it to the pan where I was sauteing onions and peppers for our breakfast burritos. When we sat down to eat, there was a strange flavor, very slight, but very strange. We had just had breakfast burritos a la Joy dish soap! Apparently, his cleaning lady thought it would be a cute dispenser for soap. Oh. For two people that regularly had their mouths washed out with dish soap while growing up, you'd think we would have been able to identify the curious taste. Side note...Dawn dish soap is the reason I cannot stand cilantro even today. Things like this are why I don't trust people to come into my home to do anything for me without my direct supervision.

gk20’s Journal – A Punk Manifesto - the definition of true punk, by Greg Graffin – Homemade Yogurt in the Crock Pot After my fairly successful attempt at making homemade toothpaste, I was again inspired by Thankfully Thrifty to try making homemade yogurt in my crockpot. I’ve made yogurt on the stove and in a yogurt maker before, but I’ve always worried that it wouldn’t turn out right in the crock pot. Don’t ask me why! And now I’m wondering why I was scared to try. Because folks, if you not done this before, it is so, so easy. It felt almost too easy — like I was cheating or something! I’d picked up a half gallon of whole organic milk marked down to $1.99 at the health food store on Tuesday, so I used that for the milk. The recipe requires very little effort on your part, but it takes a long time to make: I started it yesterday morning and it wasn’t done until I woke up this morning (well, it would have be done in the middle of the night, but I wasn’t about to get up at 2 a.m. just to put the yogurt in the fridge! And you might want to set a timer to remind you when you need to go do something to it.
