You apply a clear coat of polish to the nails, dip the nail into the glitter pot, make sure the glitter covers the whole nail, carefully remove it from the pot, then wipe off any excess.    The result is gorgeous. It’s a matte glitter finish unlike conventional glitter nail polish. by hollie

Painted wine bottle centerpieces.  I added glitter to the top of the bottles by spraying the top 1/3 of the bottle with craft bond then shaking glitter over the glue.  After it dries, add a coat of high-gloss clear coat to add shine and to set and protect the glitter.  Place curly willow or other branches in the bottle for pretty home decor. by Oupoooe

I grabbed two clear plastic paint cans from Michael's craft store for $2.00 each and filled them with candy (as labeled on the tag).   Last, but definitely not least, I made my parent volunteer some thank you gifts.  This idea comes from Event Trender.  Put a green apple and jar of homemade dip in a clear cello bag, add a tag and hopefully it gets the message across of just how much I have loved and appreciated my parent volunteers this year! by marietta

Adapted from Huffington Post

Yields 4 servings

1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
Four 12-ounce bottles cream soda, chilled

In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar with 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until the mixture reaches 240 degrees F (115 degrees C) on a candy thermometer, stirring occasionally. If you don't have a candy thermometer, bring to a gentle boil and turn off the heat after about a minute of cooking.

Turn off the heat and add the butter, salt, vinegar, and 1/4 cup heavy cream. Stir until smooth. Cool mixture to room temperature before using.

In a medium bowl, beat together the remaining cream (1/2 cup) with 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar syrup.

In each glass, mix together 1/4 cup brown sugar syrup with 1/4 cup cream soda. Pour in the rest of the cream soda until it is nearly to the brim of the glass. Top with whipped cream.

I apologize! I said I would post a recipe yesterday BUT I had no power  starting Friday night through Saturday night so that made things kind of  difficult... Hopefully these granola bars can make up for my tardiness!  When I was a kid, I used to inhale those Quaker Chewy Granola Bars. My mom  would always have to stop me before I ate the whole box… I mean, they are  pretty much like “healthy” candy bars or at least they used to be. So once  I got started eating them, it was game over for those babies. I was an  all-or-nothing type of kid when it came to eating. I’d either eat  everything in the pantry (i.e., every piece of chocolate I could find) or  refuse to eat for days, especially when they tried to feed me squash (which  I surprisingly now LOVE). Unfortunately, this trait has kind of stayed with  me into my adult life, which is why I’m glad these granola bars are not  like candy bars! I can eat as many as I want! Though, I’m not going to lie…  The second bar I ate after making these may or may not have been smothered  in peanut butter with a few dark chocolate chips sprinkled on top (...  hello candy granola bar). I highly recommend trying that if you make these…  Normally, one would use all oats for the base ingredient when making  granola bars. However, I found that substituting some crushed rice chex  cereal for oats was fantastic, not only for texture but calories too! These  bars are low calorie and dairy free. I love swapping out butter for  unsweetened applesauce when baking! Applesauce is a great substitute for  butter and/or oils. Same goes for bananas (I have a recipe for you next  week demonstrating this). Yay for healthy snacks!  Rice Chex Granola Bars printable recipe  Yield: 16 granola bars  Calories: 95 calories per bar  Total Time: about 5 hours (prep time only 15 minutes)    Ingredients:  - 4 cups rice chex cereal, crushed (this should be about 2 cups crushed)  - 2 cups quick oats  - 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce  - 1 tsp vanilla extract  - 3 tbsp raw honey  - 2 tbsp PB2 + 1 tbsp water (or 2 tbsp normal creamy peanut butter - this  will add extra calories)  - optional: brown sugar (for sprinkling - I used about one tbsp)    Directions:  1. Crush rice chex cereal in a large bowl using your hands until only small  pieces remain. It’s okay if a few larger pieces remain but you want the  bulk of it to be small pieces.  2. Add oats to the bowl with crushed rice chex and stir to combine.  3. Prepare peanut butter by mixing PB2 with water in a small bowl until  creamy (skip this step if using normal peanut butter).  4. Combine applesauce, vanilla, honey and peanut butter in a medium  saucepan. Cook over low heat until ingredients are melted together and  creamy/gooey, about 5-10 minutes.  5. Pour warm gooey applesauce mixture from step 4 over the chex oat mixture  and stir until dry ingredients are completely intertwined with wet  ingredients (well combined).  6. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Pour mixture from step 5  into the dish and smooth out using a spatula until mixture completely fills  the dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top then push it into the bars  using your fingertips. Refrigerate for about 5 hours to allow granola bars  to harden.  7. Once hardened, remove from fridge, slice into 16 bars and enjoy!  Note: I stored my granola bars in the fridge. I recommend doing the same!  Mine stayed fresh for about one week.  The recipe is very simple and you can definitely add your own flare to it  like dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc... The possibilities are  endless! I wanted to start with a bare minimum granola bar so I can always  add whatever I’m craving that day to it. What you would add to make these  granola bars better?! Tell me your thoughts! Happy Sunday!  - A by Happy_chibi_dragon
