It’s been a few months since I shared that I was looking for and going to try making homemade deodorant. My first attempt worked pretty well, but not perfect for all of us. So I tweaked and that didn’t work perfectly either. But the third tweak was a go! So today I’m fulfilling my promise to share our natural, homemade deodorant recipe — it really works. An no nasty chemicals like store-bought! by kathrine

My first foray into homemade ketchup making was this summer when I had buckets of Roma tomatoes to use up.  It was so good, I may never buy ketchup again! But now that I’m doing the low carb thing, I can’t use it because it’s loaded with sugar.  So I scoped out my local grocery … by joni

In my ongoing attempt at removing the chemicals from my home over the last couple years, I learned that so many of the things we used to use before we knew better are filled with toxic junk. It is so easy to make your own homemade vapor shower disks that I will never return to store bought kind again! by kathrine

So I was driving home from work and saw some piece of shit asshat push this dog out of their car. I pulled over to see if it was okay and he hopped up in my car and laid down. I can’t have another animal but I didn’t want to just leave him out there. I’m gonna take him to work and have him neutered and vaccinated. He’s limping on one leg, don’t know if it’s from being pushed out of a moving car or if it’s old. I’ll fix it though. Plllleeeeease share this with anyone who might be looking for a.. by LiesbethLap

This is my kitty cat that passed away last summer. I had him since I can remember being alive, and he died at 18 years old. I miss that cat so much, but it’s cool he’ll get to be a part of me for the rest of my life. I have one session left to fill in the frame, but I’m inlove with how it’s turned out so far. Thanks Pedro! by wendi

"When people would ask how I was doing I couldn’t answer “fine”, but I couldn’t put my finger on why, exactly. I had used the “I’m just tired” response way too many times and soon realized that I didn’t believe it anymore. I wasn’t just tired. I was… something else." by virgie

I’ve shared a lot of tips about distressing furniture through the years, but I decided I would tackle the subject again. I took pictures of the process as I worked on the Marzipan dresser I revealed yesterday for that very reason. So, here’s how the dresser looked once it was painted. It has two coats of MMSMP Marzipan with some Ironstone (white) painted on the trim, handles and carved details.

Hanging boot organizers! I had no idea these existed. You can either purchase them for super cheap: $11.99 via Amazon or you could easily DIY yourself up one with an upcycled comforter bag or an old sheet or some great fabric. Edit : Someone asked “These have bad reviews on amazon… Why would this be a suggestion?” My answer is simple…I find storage options and I share them. I don’t always think to read the reviews, I’m guilty of that with my own purchases. This product in particular, I didn’t think to read the reviews because I have used the shoe versions of these and they worked fine. As for the two bad reviews this one received, you could easily solve one problem with a couple clothespins to hold the sides shut. by Eva
