This is my daughter's second zebra striped room. The first was hot pink. I'm getting very good at zebra stripes. I did it by googleing images of zebra stripes, found the one I liked and printed it off. I then put it in a projector and shined it on the wall. You have to work in the dark outlining and then filling in the stripes but it turns out great! by leona

I've been getting a lot of questions on how I do my eyebrows do here is a tutorial that I posted a few weeks back. Keep in mind that this is for a very artificial brow look! I change it up, but when I'm going for a more defined look this is what I do: 1.) I start by underlining my brows with MAC Fluidline in Dipdown which  is a gel liner, but you can use a brow pencil for this step too! 2.)

How to restore an old good brush? I found out that by not only adding soap but really hot water the oil sticked to the brushes it will finally come off! Leave the brushes in hot water for couple of minutes until the brush hairs are flexible. Now, I have brushes in great condition that I have used for more than 10 years just like new!  The best of all I didn't use turpentine or thinner at all that it is toxic. by ivy

Did you know that Baby Powder is a MUST HAVE for your Beach Bag?! It completely removes sand from your body without using water! You can also use a soft-bristled brush to remove excess sand, but you really only need the baby powder!

The first thing to do is dampen a paper towel. You can wet it with tap water then squeeze out the excess water. You want the paper towel damp, but not dripping wet. Pre germinate vegetable seeds to check for duds - Lay the damp paper towel on a flat surface and spread it out as best you can. Next, place the seeds you want to pre-germinate in the middle of the paper towel. Fold the warm wet paper towel like a satchel around the seeds. Place the completed seed germinating satchel (well, that’s what I call it) into a zipper lock style sandwich baggie. Do not seal the baggie up. You want the seeds to be able to breathe and have some air circulation. Place it in a warm place (around 70°F to 75°F) and let the seeds rest in the damp paper towel for a couple days. Check the seeds after a couple days to see if you spot any that appear to be swelling or changing in size. After three or four days (depending on what type of seed you are germinating) you should begin to see very tiny shoots appear from the seeds. This means the seed has begun germinating and is a viable seed. Once they get about 1/8-inch long or so, they are ready to sow! by lilly

I just made a batch of this.  I didn't have any food coloring, so I used a random packet of kool-aid I found in the junk drawer.  Really fast to make (which is good for my 2-year old's attention span) and perfect consistency.  I will definitely make more.  I'll use beets, greens, carrots, etc. for natural coloring in the future. by charlotte

Crock Pot Ground Beef Stew.  Made this tonight, but on the stovetop. Used ground turkey instead of beef and didn't use tomato soup or paste, just used can of tomato sauce instead. Pretty good. One of those soups you can vary just based for what you have on hand I think. SCC by smotero

Perfect Lemon Cupcakes    Cake:  1 package lemon cake mix  1 cup sour cream  3/4 cup water  3/4 cup oil  4 eggs  1 small package lemon instant pudding     Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed for about two minutes. Use a strong mixer, this batter is thick. For cupcakes, bake them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (I was able to get 24 very full cupcakes from the recipe). For regular cake, pour into a greased 9×11 pan or two round pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Don’t over bake or the cake will be too dry! The toothpick test works to check to see if they’re done.  The original recipe said that the cupcakes will fall after they come out of the oven, but this is normal and to just fill up the indentation with more frosting. I didn’t have this problem at all!     Lemon Buttercream Frosting:  1 cup (2 sticks) butter, very soft  6-8 cups powdered sugar  1/2 cup fresh lemon juice  1 teaspoon grated lemon zest     Place the butter in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups of sugar, then the juice and the zest. Beat until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, until icing is thick enough to be of good spreading consistency (I added 6 cups total). Use and store at room temperature. (Don’t refrigerate and it will last in a covered container for about three days.)     Garnish with berries, if desired right before serving. by paolitas
