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;) by Mummigurl

Super Silky Summer Legs Next time you are feeling down, about to binge, going on a date, or just need to pamper yourself, do this. I just did it and I can not stop rubbing my legs together. It feels like I paid for that over expensive pedicure at the salon. Ingredients 1 1/4 C Sugar (Yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar) 1/2 C Oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil) 3 tablespoons Citrus (Lime or lemon) 1-2 Razors Mix everything together by jallamon

Mix ½ cup olive oil, ¼ cup aloe Vera gel, 2 tablespoons vitamin E gel and 1 tablespoon Vitamin a gel. As soon as the ingredients are properly blended, put it in a container then keep inside the refrigerator until chilled. Put on the skin once daily. All the vitamins and aloe Vera will accelerate the production of new cell as well as lessen the appearance of stretch marks.-I think I'll make this to use as a moisturizer for my face by myra

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! by bettie

Make constellations in a tube. I actually do this a lot when we have a spare tube for my kids and for my former daycare I would take dark construction paper scraps and just put it around roughly flat and use a pin to push in the outline of whatever the kids wanted...Great reward. They love it. Or you can, as I did for the older kids, let them select the constellation and I would punch it in. Great cheap activity to WOW any child. by jean

Man Bouquet: I just recently made this for my boyfriend for his 25th birthday. It was super easy and fun to make. HE LOVED IT! I saw these bouquets all over the place with just alcohol or just candy but I decided to make it my own by adding all his favorite stuff. One of the things he said to me was "you should put it on pintrest." So I am, you will need: wooden dowels, floral foam, a glue gun, tape, a bucket or vase, confetti or tissue paper, glitter pipecleaners, and all your presents! by sherri

I have made a lot of mac and cheese and even a lot of lighter mac and cheeses and I have to say this is hands down the absolute best mac and cheese I’ve made. It’s filled with sharp cheddar, creamy and really just fantastic. I made it for a family style dinner with friends and everyone put in their own toppings (I went with oven roasted grape tomatoes but there were quite a few bacon mac & cheeses around the table!). All my friends really loved it and it was incredibly easy to throw together. by constance

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. by bernadette

Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups:    These have quickly become a weekend favorite. I make an entire pan full and then the hubby has a yummy, wholesome breakfast to grab and take with him as he's running out the door at the crack of dawn. Yay for cooking once a week!  ;)        1 24 oz. bag of shredded hash browns  2 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  2 tbs oil (I use olive oil)  1/3 cup shredded cheddar  Bacon bits or 8=10 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled  Eggs  Extra shredded cheddar  Muffin tin  Take your bag of hash browns and mix in the salt, pepper, oil and 1/3 cup shredded cheese.  Divide amongst the cups in your muffin tin, making sure to grease tin beforehand.  Bake hash browns at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until toasty.  Once they're finished, take them out and lower the temp of the oven to 350 degrees.  Crack an egg into each of the cups  Top with bacon and a sprinkle of extra cheese  Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes (or until the eggs are as firm as you like them).  Slide a knife along the edges to remove from pan when cooled.  Notes:  I like to break the yolks in my eggs a bit once I put them into the hash brown cups  When I cheat on these, I use the Oscar Meyer Bacon pieces found in the "salad dressing" section of the grocery store. They're the closest thing to fresh bacon I can find, and all-natural. :)  You can also experiment with ham, sausage, and veggies to make them your own! by Natalie Trgovic

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 by rachelle
