Cookie Sheet Magnet Boards

So I saw a picture online where some crafty person turned a cookie sheet into a magnet board and I thought.. how freaking cute and easy that looks to do!  I decided right then and there that my old scraped up rusted cookie sheets needs to be replaced anyways so why not reuse them?

Bubble Wrap Insulation

It’s cold outside! Bubble wrap your window for Insulations Cut the bubble wrap to the size of the window pane with scissors. Spray a film of water on the window using a spray bottle. Apply the bubble wrap while the window is still wet and press it into place. The bubble side goes toward the glass. To remove the bubble wrap, just pull it off starting from a corner. You can save it and use it for several years. It does not leave a mess or stains on the window glass. If you have trouble with the bubble wrap separating from the window when the film dries, you can try adding a little Glycerin to the water, but this probably won’t be necessary. A few small pieces of double back tape can be helpful on really stubborn windows. The bubblewrap can be installed in the fall, and removed in the spring. Judging by how mine looks after a year, it may last quite a while. When you take the bubble wrap down, put a small number in on the upper right corner of each piece of bubble wrap, and write down which window that number goes with on a piece of paper. Save the paper for the installation next fall. This tells you instantly where each sheet goes, and which way its oriented.

 

Now I couldn’t do this because I have to be able to see out my windows.. but if your living in one of those super cold states.. this is an awesome idea to help heat your house up for less money!

Cute Sock Snowmen

cute-sock-snowmen-1

 

The feeling of frozen hands isn’t what you want to remember this year’s holidays by. You can avoid the horrors of a cold shivering afternoon rolling big piles of dirty snow around the yard, and still have fun making the traditional snowman. This time, make your own cute little snowmen out of socks. It’s perfect for a warm indoor Christmas activity, especially when it hasn’t snowed yet! Here is what you will need:

• socks: a white one and a colored-patterned one
• a pack of rice or beans (potpourri will do the trick as well; also it will smell nice)
• strings of ribbon or twine
• a couple of rubber bands (or a sowing kit if you want the snowman to be rigid)
• some buttons
• a piece of material (like a part of toothpick or a stick) to use for the nose

The big advantage of the sock snowmen is that they don’t melt as soon as the Sun sees them. They take about 10 minutes to make and the process is fairly easy. Bellow are the steps….

I told y’all I will be posting all things Pumpkin.. well this isn’t something you eat but still!

 

 

With Halloween coming up, share this to your page so you can remember to do this!

After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.”

FYI—- BLEACH IS NOT FLAMMABLE!!
