Engagement Photography! I plan to use some of these :) putting my own spin on it of course!
I love glass pitchers and can't wait to own some and use them in my kitchen. Ice water, fresh lemonade, orange juice, grapefruit juice....
DIY Lotion Fabric Softener. I want to be clear that I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT suggesting you BUY lotion to make this. HOWEVER, if you're like me and you have some lotion collecting dust, maybe you should give this a try. See, I liked the smell, I just didn't like it as lotion. I used a 1:1:2 ratio of lotion, white vinegar & WARM water. I just put it straight in a jar with a lid & gave it a good shake. It will seperate so shake before use. As for amount & how to use - use the same as you normally use/add your fabric softener. I used Juniper Breeze from BandBW which does not make cheap fabric softener, but is better than throwing it away. I use it on my sheets & towels & love the way they smell;)
Another pinner said: Creamy garlic pasta! I made this tonight and it was the tastiest thing I have ever put in my mouth. Who needs to spend money at Olive Garden? This is just as good if not better.
Flip Flop Sandwiches ~ Use your own sandwich fillings ~ Just find a flip flop cookie cutter and you're all set! ~ Cut the green parts of green onions and use min-tomatoes or carrot cuts to finish. I think they are just adorable!! (Image suggestion only)
I made my own garlic bread pizza and it's so good and so easy. Just put your sauce, cheese, and toppings on the still frozen garlic bread
I think instead of making my own summer to do list I might just use this one. It really has some great options and a good variety.
Make your own cooking spray without the nasty additives! One part olive oil to five parts water. Shake before each use! Well now i just feel silly for ever using PAM. I really hope that this works!

My first experiment with essential oils was to mix some oils for my husband's achy back. I had read about essential oils & wanted to put what I was reading to use. I found several formulas for back pain & then decided to try my own recipe, using the oils I already had. I mixed 5 drops of eucalyptus oil & 5 drops of peppermint oil, diluted in 1 Tbsp. of almond oil. The good news is that my husband, who is not fond of strong smells, didn't mind the aroma at all & found the massage to be soothing!
Without a doubt, one of the best things I ever did for my skin was to start making my own scrubs. The stuff at the store is chock full of stuff that's bad for your skin - all sorts of chemicals and alcohol. Yuck. Do your skin a favor... Go out and buy a mason jar. Add coarse sea salt, olive oil, almond oil, and if you can find it - jojoba oil. Use daily. Love your skin again. I add the olive oil and jojoba oil first to the salt and then add as much almond oil as I need to make it smell great. W
Mrs. T's First Grade Class: My latest greatest math tool find. Draw a number line with sharpie on a ziploc slider bag and use the slider as the tool to add or subtract two numbers. I just filled the bags with addition and subtration cards. I put a piece of white paper in the bag also because it made the numbers a little easier to see.
I've made this.., it turned out pretty good although I like my wine sweet, great conversation starter when you have guests over, Let them try a glass and see what they think. ~ Making homemade wine from grape juice is quite simple, and requires very inexpensive supplies. The following is a step-by-step on making homemade wine from frozen non-citrus juice concentrates. The neat thing about making wine from concentrates is the consistency of the flavor, and the variety of tasty wines you can produce. Local markets stock a great variety of frozen juice concentrates these days that can make a delicious inexpensive wine. For a red wine choose purple grape, pomegranate, cherry or strawberry juice, and for a white wine choose a white grape, pineapple, mango or apple juice. Frozen juice wines taste very good and mature with pretty high alcohol content for just a few dollars a bottle. With the many new flavors on the shelves, you could try several blends for a wonderful and tasty wine- yum… Gather all these ingredients: 3 cups white granulated sugar 1 packet bread-making yeast 1 can frozen juice concentrate (non-citrus) Water Clean gallon jug Balloon Rubber band Small funnel Follow these simple steps: Defrost the frozen juice by letting the container sit in a bowl of warm water for an hour. Purify a gallon milk jug with bleach and rinse very well. Pour the yeast, sugar and concentrated juice into the milk jug with the funnel. Shake the ingredients together. Fill the rest of the milk jug with warm (not hot!) water. This will activate the yeast. Put the lid on the jug and shake the ingredients together. Then take off the lid. Slide the balloon over the top of the milk jug and wrap the rubber band around the neck of the milk jug and the balloon to secure the balloon through the fermentation and wine-making process. Set the wine in a dark, warm place, at around 70 degrees. The balloon will fill with gases as the juice ferments. This is how you know the process is working. After three to 6 weeks the balloon will deflate and the process is complete. If you see sediment that you would rather not keep, pour your homemade wine into a bottle using a small funnel and a coffee filter to clarify- enjoy
