Making Jewelry! As if I didn't have enough to do. I've always seen the strands of beads at the craft stores but just kept walking by. One day, I just thought, how hard can it be. So, I bought one of their "Class in a Box". I did all of the projects and got an idea on how to do it and some basic techniques. I was just wanting to make my own jewelry. So, I bought another book, some supplies and made myself a couple of necklaces. The red bead necklace is one I made for myself. A…Continue

I was going to just throw it away when I was thinking how I could save it and either restore it or transform it. I don't remember now how I came up with the idea of a rope table. Maybe I saw one in magazine or one of the many emails I get. At any rate, I searched the internet to find out how to make one. I used the instructions from this site: …Continue

Recycle those old scented sachets once they lose their scent. I use them in picture frames to create a beautiful room wall accent. Greeting cards work well too, I've done this with Christmas cards that I just hate to throw away. They look great on the wall at Christmas time or on an accent table.
It can be done relatively inexpensively too. In this example, I purchased a double 5x7 frame with the Mat from Walmart for about $10. Then I emptied the stale sachets (or you can empty…Continue

About every 2 years I donate my hair to Wigs for Kids. An organization that makes wigs for kids who have lost their hair to Cancer treatments, burn victim or disease. An organization I support. It's an Ohio based organization very similar to Locks of Love out of Florida. Both very worthy organizations.
This is around my 5th donation now and it takes me about 2 years to grow it to a length I can give them the 12 inches they require and still have shoulder length hair after…Continue

I'm one of those people that love to watch the History channel, NatGeo, A&E, etc.... I love knowing about our history as a human race, customs and why we do the things we do and why we celebrate the way we do. Many things change over time and we sometimes don't even know why we do them, celebrate a certain way, or how they came into existence.
So...here is link from Wikipedia regarding the history of Halloween. Interesting reading if nothing else.…Continue
