Smash up some fall leaves into tiny pieces. If the leaves are soft, throw them in the microwave for a minute or so to make them crunchy. Get black paint that comes with a brush. Paint lines on a piece of paper, sort of in the shape of a tree. Use a straw to blow on the paint and create branches. Put glue on the tree after the paint dries.

ORIGINAL BLUE DAWN . . . IT’S NOT JUST FOR DISHES ANYMORE Wild Life Ever wonder why Dawn Dishwashing Liquid is the wildlife cleaner of choice after an oil spill? According to the International Bird Rescue Research Center, Dawn effectively removes grease but does not cause harm to the skin of the birds. It’s also biodegradable and contains no phosphates. BUBBLES According to Bubbles.org, Dawn dishwashing liquid makes great homemade bubbles. Here is the Giant Bubble Recipe used in bubble makers at many children’s museums: 1/2 cup Ultra Dawn 1/2 gallon warm water 1 tablespoon glycerin (available at any drug store) OR White Karo syrup works too! Stir gently. Skim the foam off the top of the solution (too much foam breaks down the bubbles). Dip bubble wand and get ready for some good, clean fun! GREASY HAIR PROBLEMS Kids get into the darnedest things! Like Vaseline and baby oil rubbed into their hair! Dawn is mild enough to use on their hair and strong enough to remove the most stubborn grease. HAIR PRODUCT BUILDUP Once a month use original Dawn as you would shampoo. It will remove excess oil from your hair and scalp and strip away any build-up of styling products without any damage. Perform this once a month and you won’t have to buy expensive salon products that do the same thing. MANICURE SECRET Soak fingers in full-strength blue Dawn. It makes the cuticles soft and easy to work with. And it removes the natural oil from the fingernails, which allows the polish to adhere very well. REPEL HOUSEPLANT INSECTS A safe, effective way to repel insects from your houseplants, including aphids, spider mites and mealy bugs. Put a drop of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid in a spray bottle, fill the rest of the bottle with water, shake well, and mist your household plants with the soapy water. CLEAN YOUR WINDOWS  Try this recipe from Merry Maids: mix 3 drops Dawn in 1 gallon water and fill a spray bottle with the solution. Spritz and wipe as you would with any window cleaner. PETS AND PESTS Use it to bathe the dogs. It kills fleas on contact and is much cheaper than expensive dogshampoos. CLEAN AUTOMOTIVE TOOLS After you have finished your automotive repair project, soak your dirty tools in Dawn before you put them away to remove all the oil and grime. Dawn also helps prevent rust from forming on the tools. ICE PACK Partially fill a strong zip-type sandwich bag with Dawn dishwashing liquid, close and freeze. The liquid soap stays cold much longer and it can be re-frozen many times. It will conform to the place you need an ice pack. TUB AND SHOWER CLEANER Take a spray bottle and fill it halfway with white vinegar. Heat in the microwave. Fill the rest of the way with blue Dawn. Put lid on and shake to mix well. Spray on your tub and shower walls. Allow to sit for a few minutes and rinse away. It will totally melt all the gunk, slime, sludge and other stuff that builds up including a bathtub ring. REPEL ANTS Spray counter-tops, cupboards and any other area where you see ants with a solution of Dawn and water. Wipe dry. The slight residue of Dawn that remains will not be a problem at all for kids or pets, but ants hate it. Should you see a trail of ants, go ahead and hit them with the Dawn spray. STRIPPING CLOTH DIAPERS Add a squirt or two of original Dawn dish soap to your washer and run a hot wash, then rinse until there are no more bubbles. Dawn is a degreasing agent and helps stripping by removing oily residue. Be sure to rinse, rinse, rinse until the water runs clear. UNCLOGGING TOILETS A cup of Dawn detergent poured into a clogged toilet allowed to sit for 15 minutes and then followed with a bucket of hot water poured from waist height will clear out the toilet. POISON IVY Poison ivy spreads through the spread of the oil within the blisters. Washing the affected area with Dawn, especially on children who keep scratching the blister’s open, helps dry up the fluid, AND keep it from spreading. DRIVEWAY CLEANER If you have gasoline or motor oil stains on your driveway, you can use the kitty litter method to clean up the excess oil and then use a scrub broom and a solution of biodegradable Dawn dishwashing detergent and warm water to safely and effectively remove excess motor oil from the pavement. OILY SKIN Dawn makes a great facial cleanser for oily skin. A drop or two combined with warm water will do the trick. PAINT OR GREASE REMOVER FOR HANDS Dawn combined with corn oil makes for the perfect paint or grease remover. Simply combine a little bit of both in your hands then rub it over affected areas. The corn oil and the dishwashing liquid both help to dissolve the grease and paint – yet leave skin soft, unlike harsher paint removers. CLEANING THE KIDDIE POOL Plastic wading pools can get very gunky, very fast. Dump the water, then scrub the pool with Dawn and a sponge. More potent cleaners like bleach will weaken and dry out the plastic in the sun. MULTIPURPOSE CLEANER Merry Maids recommends using a drop of Dawn in water to clean ceramic tile and no-wax/linoleum floors. You can also use the spray on: • Bathroom and kitchen counters and sinks. • Woodwork, e.g., baseboards, shelves, and wainscoting. (Dry as you go–wood doesn’t like prolonged contact with water.) • Tubs and toilet seats. LAUNDRY PRE-TREATER FOR OILY STAINS For oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, butter, motor oil, cooking oil, and some pen inks, simply apply some Dawn dishwashing liquid directly to the stain and scrub with a small brush or toothbrush until the oil is removed, and then launder as usual. NON-TOXIC LUBRICANT Sliding glass doors, door knobs, hinges etc. It lasts much longer than any aerosol type spray that I have tried. And Its non-toxic! It does a great job of cleaning the parts that its lubricating as well! SIDEWALK DE-ICER For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid, 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water and pour over walkways. They won’t refreeze. No more salt eating at the concrete in your sidewalks POOL CLEANING Squirt Dawn down the middle of the pool and all of the dirt, suntan lotion, etc. will move to the edges of the pool for easy clean up! AND it makes the pools sparkle. EYEGLASS DEFOGGER Simply rub a small drop of Dawn on eyeglass lenses, and wipe clean. It will leave a very thin film that will prevent them from fogging up. SHOWER FLOORS Cover greasy footprints on shower floors with a coating of Dawn; let sit overnight. Scrub away the gunk in the morning with a stiff brush. APHID CONTROL ON FRUIT TREES Mix two tablespoons Dawn to a gallon of water and put in your sprayer. Try to get spray both sides of the leaves, branches and the tree trunks. Let sit for about 15 minutes and then rinse the trees THOROUGHLY! AND FINALLY…….. Here’s a brilliant idea! Need a hostess gift when visiting friends and family this summer?

If you have good PVA then you may need to water it down a little. (Ikea draws between about £10 & £20 pounds) Decoupage also works well on cardboard. by claudia

Well, here it is... A Low Carb, High Fat Meat Pie! Let's start with the filling. Finely dice one brown onion, one carrot and 4 sticks of celery. Saute in a hot pan with 100gm diced bacon, garlic and a generous splash of olive oil until lightly browned. Next add 500gm of grassfed beef mince to the pan and brown all over. This next step you can adjust to personal taste (and carb allowance). I add a small splash of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon of low carb (check bottle or make your own) tomato paste, a good screw of salt and pepper and a shake of dried herbs. Stir through, add 250ml of bone broth and 1/2 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum and place pan in a low oven 150ºC for an hour or two. Now, the crust. Place three cups of grated melting cheese (mozzarella, tasty etc) and 100gm diced cream-cheese into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute, stir and heat for a further minute until its full liquid. To the melted cheese mix add 1 1/2 cups almond meal, 2 eggs and a screw of pepper. Stir by hand to form a dough. COOKING TIP: Splashing a little water on your fingers makes it easier to work the dough into shape. Divide the dough into to portions about 60/40 ratio. Take the larger portion and divide that into six balls. Push these into a large muffin tin (Texas Size) if you have a pie maker all the better... use the dough to fully line the muffin cups and slightly out the top as the dough will shrink slightly on cooking. Bake in a hot oven 220ºC for 10-15mins until starting to brown. Remove from oven and spoon in a generous helping of your meat pie filling. Finally divide your smaller ball of dough into six portions, flatten into circles and place on top, firmly pushing the edges to join the lower pie shell. Prick the top with a fork and return to the hot oven until pies are golden brown.   Enjoy with some low carb, no added sugar tomato sauce. AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE! by tanisha
