There were no instructions with this pin I found, but it looks pretty simple to do. It's a smart idea to keep your roll of toilet paper clean & dry and easy to use! Simply cut a slit in the side of a plastic coffee container, feed the TP through the slit & put the lid on. by shana

This has a clean overall look which I enjoy. However, the actual sushi packaging doesn't seen to work to well. The roll seems like it would fall apart instead of staying together in a neat shape. by Oupoooe

Looking for a fun way to keep your PreK and Kinders engaged? My little guys love these winter themed counting cards!  We use them in many different ways: Use a dry erase marker or vis-a-vis pen to circle the correct number; Use a clothespin to clip the correct answer; Roll small circles of playdoh and put on each image and count; put cereal, such as Cherrios or Fruit Loops on each image and count. by joann

Wedding Color Palette: Teal + Mint (a color palette in tones of teal and mint). Two of my favorites on the cool end of the color spectrum, and they pair beautifully simply with each other or with accents of cream, blush, or lavender. This color palette looks lovely with bridesmaid dresses in watercolor shades of sea glass mint, peacock teal, and misty grey-green (think dusty miller). These colors are naturally soothing and relaxing to look at. by DeeDeeBean

Gotta Try This!!  Clean your tubs and showers with grapefruit!

1. Halve Grapefruit: 1 medium to large grapefruit will clean your entire bath or shower from top to bottom, including all the fixtures. Simply cut it in half with a knife and you'll be all set.

2. Sprinkle With Salt: Using 1 grapefruit half at a time, sprinkle liberally with salt. Wet your bathtub and sprinkle the remaining salt around the bottom.

3. Take That Scrubbing Bubbles!Scrub your grapefruit around your shower or tub, making sure to slightly "juice" the citrus over each fixture and lifting it every few seconds to pick up fresh salt from around the tub instead of just pushing it around.

4. Rinse: When all is said and done, simply rinse away the pulpy bits and the salt and your shower is as good as new. Not only is it clean, it will smell so fantastic you'll want to curl up in it and read a book. Ok, probably not, but you get the idea!

Additional Notes:
This technique will get thick grime and dirt rings off your shower area and does amazing work on cast iron tubs especially. You can also use this method to clean your sinks, toilets, tile and more — it just depends on how grapefruit crazy you want to get! by janine

Beautiful use of different dresses on each bridesmaid. I love how each one is a different shade of off white and each dress works well with each person's body type and shape. This is sometimes difficult to do, but as you can see - the results are simply beautiful. by Nuria Forsyth

I love this clean, reduced, sophisticated look - so much achieved with such simplicity! Take it one step further with a mirrored tabletop and colored gems - or use a gradation of colors in the single blooms, maybe a whole rainbow from one end of the long table to the other... or silver gems and purple blooms on a lilac tablecloth... by lorie

I just think this is a great way to keep all those plant markers together for each season.  Nice to have them to refer back to.  Could actually use a label maker or write on the back side, how the plant did for you.  For perennials, I actually keep these in my garden journal which is a 3 ring binder (stapled to a sheet of paper) by penelope

Prep this stuff for salads at the beginning of the week when everything is really fresh and "lively" and then toss it into a quick soup or cooked side when it is less awesome for eating raw.
