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!

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!

New to you dresser!

Well ladies and gentlemen if you have children you know something nice can turn into something drastic within hours!  My daughter, now 14, has a dresser which was used when we got it. Well…it needed a face-lift, bad!   So, as I was strolling through Pinterest one day I saw a post http://www.betterafter.net/2010/08/venti-dresser.html and so I tried it!   You simply cover your old dresser with material!

DSCF1085  Here’s what mine looks like!!!!!

It was so easy!  It did take some time to do it but it really made her old dresser look A LOT better and within my budget.

All I used was some leftover material, you will need about a yard or two total depending on how large or small your dresser.  Modge Podge, yes ladies and gentlemen I broke and bought it but I am so glad I did!  It truly was the perfect glue for this project.  Something to apply the modge podge, I used a paintbrush.  A screwdriver and your dresser!

First I emptied the dresser of course.  Then I cut my material leaving an inch extra on every side.  Take off your knobs and apply Modge Podge to the entire area.  lay your material down and smooth it from the center out.  Modge podge the ends around the side and back of the drawer leaving no loose ends…you don’t want them to get caught and rip off!  I then felt around for the holes and used my screwdriver to poke through the material over the holes so I could get the screw and knob back through.  Do that for all the drawers and it looks great! My daughter loves her new dresser and it didn’t have to hurt my budget!
