Do you love your face and hate blackheads?

Well I do ladies and gentlemen, and unfortunately my daughter had inherited the hatred for them as well.  I am very funny about my skin so I try to take car of it as best I can.  GELATIN FACE-MASKS!  My husband found this idea on the internet and we both wanted to try because Biore’ are just out of our budget.  All you need is a small bowl to mix in, a tablespoon of gelatin, and 1-3 tablespoons of WARM milk.

Again, use WARM milk, if you use cold milk the gelatin will start to congeal, and that’s not good!  Mix the milk and gelatin together until smooth, maybe a minute or so.  Smear that wonderful mixture on your face, or where you have blackheads- avoid hairy areas-it may rip it out.  Wait about 30 minutes for it to dry and literally just peal it off!  you can speed up the process a bit by using a hair dryer on low-don’t burn yourself now, I’m not responsible!  And that’s it! It was really that easy! AND my skin felt great afterwards!  Thanks and have a great day!

Have a little fun after you wipe…

Well ladies and gentlemen, I was feelin crafty with the young ones, (2 and 4 year old little girls to be exact) when I came across a pin… CROWNS OUT OF TOILET PAPER ROLLS! It was easy enough for the girls to enjoy and definitely was a craft that stayed in my budget!  All you need to start is a toilet paper roll, scissors, whatever you would like to decorate with (we used washable paint), and a bobby pin.

First you cut your crown shape from the toilet paper roll, i just did triangles. If your child is old enough draw lines for them to cut along by themselves!

Next cut a slit at the base, about a 1/4 inch wide and 1/8 inch from the base.  This is where you will put your bobby pin!

*NOTE: they stay in the hair better if it is pulled back!

DIY baby Velcro bows!

I have a baby niece and I LOVE to put bows in her hair!  But like i said she’s a baby and has very little hair, sooooooo I decided to make her some Velcro bows!  They are so easy to make and so inexpensive!  You’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing this all along!!!!!  you’ll need about a 2 inch piece of Velcro, ribbon, buttons or beads, scissors and a glue gun.

First cut the Velcro into strips lengthwise, and then cut each strip in half.

Tie your bow, don’t make it too large or the Velcro will not hold it, and then using your glue gun, glue it to the Velcro.

Add a bead, or just leave as is!   So easy ladies and gentlemen, so easy…ENJOY!

 

Add a little bling to those babies!

Well ladies and gentlemen, if you have little girls or watch little girls you definitely need to do this!  All you need is about  a 2 1/2 inch strip of Velcro, scissors, a glue gun, and beads or buttons!

Towels on the floor, not anymore!

Ladies and gentlemen I don’t know if I am the only one in the world with lazy kids, but if you are like, me every time you go to dry your hands in the restroom…you reach for the towel and…its on the @#*! floor!  At that point you don’t know whats on it!  Any-who this irritates the life out of me so, I decided to do something about it!  I went to the dollar store and bought a dollar pack of shower rings and cut a dime size slit in my towels and YES! Towels on the floor no more!!!!!!!!  Put the shower ring through and that’s it!  Just a little tip from me to you! PEACE!
