Crayon hot rocks:  If you have not done this yet, you need to. Simply warm up the rocks in the oven (I did 220 for 10 minutes), then put them on a stack of newspapers (or something else you don't care if it gets crayon in it) and let the little ones go to town. Just remind them it is hot. I have done it with 2 1/2 year olds with no problem. My little lady often brings in rocks for me to "cook" so she can paint them by jimmie

Pretty red pine cones...something new to do with all the pine cones in the yard! If you soak them in i gal. hot water with a 1 oz. bottle of red food coloring, then allow them to dry on paper towels on cardboard, they will have a stained look...much softer and prettier than the painted ones! And it goes so much faster. by DavideB

Classic Sawhorse I’ve found a sturdy sawhorse that’s great even if you have limited space. When I’m done working with them I just stack them on top of each other and store them out of the way. Here’s all it takes to build one horse: One 42-in.-long 2×6 for the top board Four 28-in.-long 1×8 boards for the legs Four 9-7/8-in.-long 1×8 boards for the gussets Thirty-six 2-in.wood screws.

how to build a barre at home - I will have to get this on the "honey please do list"! BTW I did get my husband to do this and it was really easy and only cost about $30.00. It works great and I love how easily you can move it. Not as sturdy as the really expensive ones you can buy but it gets the job done for what I use it for. by proteamundi

Fun for the bachelorette party! Everyone attending should buy cute new pair of panties in the brides size that ‘represents’ them or would somehow remind the bride of them. Then, you lay out all the panties and the bride must guess which panties belong to each guest.  If she’s wrong, she has to take a drink.  If she’s right, the guest drinks.  The bride gets to keep all the underwear as a gift. I LOVE THIS by samanthasam

I had months of petrified junk on my stove burners. What can I say, life gets busy, and the little things don't get done. I kept procrastinating cleaning them because I knew it would be a nasty job. Then I found this quick, easy cleaning method that requires little to no scrubbing. Life is still busy and I have clean stove burners! by vicki

”I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after seeing them at their most vulnerable you wouldn’t be able to help falling in love with them.” by joann

If you are a mom of little kids (or big ones too), you need to know you can't do it all. You can try your hardest, but you need to accept the fact that it's just not all going to get done in the time frame you want. And that's okay. Here's some encouragement particularly for moms with small children. by lacy

“…the goodness of God leads you to repentance.” (Romans 2:4, NKJV)    In the natural, when we’ve wronged someone, sometimes it’s easier to avoid them than to face the discomfort or potential rejection. It isn’t surprising that people sometimes have this same approach to God. Have you ever heard someone say, “If I walk into a church, the roof will cave in?” They think they should keep their distance because of what they’ve done. But nothing could by Caroline C. ❦

Words to remember
The past few days have been extremely overwhelming for me. As a budding entrepreneur it seems I have a never ending to-do list. I have found recently that my OWN self care has been slipping. And that makes me feel guilty and out of integrity. Because I teach self care. I preach the benefits of it. I need to remind myself from time to time to listen to my own advice. . Those of us who are super sensitive empaths tend to be very outward focused. We are always scanning our environment feeling into peoples moods and energies. We are also natural born people pleasers. We LOVE to help other. Which is a beautiful thing. But it can become harmful to us when we feel guilty saying no. We feel if we say no to someone or an event or project that we are letting someone down disappointing them or worse- making them angry. We often feel that their reaction is our responsibility. And so we put ourselves last time and time again. We say yes over and over until we are completely drained exhausted and resentful. . But no is NOT A BAD WORD. No is a self-loving self-respecting responsible mature and often times kind word. We have to start asking ourselves why we always fall to the end of the line. Why we are so worried about disappointing others- but what about disappointing ourselves? I often ask my clients who are struggling to say no what would you say to a friend in this situation. Because the answer is almost always that the friend should stand up for and care for her energetic needs. So then why is it that YOU do not deserve the same is my next question. . You deserve to say no. You deserve to stand up and to take care of you. You are important and needed in this world. But if you dont give yourself the love you so freely give to others you will be stuck in a cycle of overwhelm turmoil and exhaustion. . Join me on January 26th for a potent conversation on how to care for yourself as a sensitive soul in this world. This powerful workshop is FREE and will ignite you on your path to re-connecting to the beautiful truth of who you are and to working on setting boundaries and practicing the magical word no. .
