this is cool. after trying to arrange my furniture around my long narrow living room, this makes me think I should just build custom fit
Maybe I should change the title of this board from "Books Worth Reading" to "Books I May Read One Day".
Books Worth Reading
how to make a quilt from start to finish. Maybe I should have read this before I am now 75% done my quilt LOL
OK… so let me start off by saying that I am not a good cook or maybe I should say I just don’t know what I’m doing in the kitchen. I really
Homes and Interiors
My new creation adapted from a cool sight words reading game I saw on another blog.
Britney Spears' Workout (From When She Was In Her Prime) Just reading this makes me tired. No wonder she doesn't look like this anymore!
I like the idea of furniture away from the walls. Makes the room seem larger
I have come to the conclusion that every concert should have confetti and balloons fall down from the ceiling. It makes me incredibly
Things I LOVE
I know nothing about this camera. It's a Pouva Start from East Germany. The history alone makes me want it.
Angel Food Cake With Pineapple Whip THIS IS IT! The recipe Shobha makes that she "got" from me, that I don't remember ever making. THIS IS A GREAT DESSERT! MM
Crafts to Try
That Was A What?!: Another Tire Saved from the Landfill - I like Nikki's blog, she has several cool ideas, I hope she keeps posting.
Repurpose old t-shirts by making reusable bags from them. @Debbie Wegener - just like your aunt makes! I love mine, btw!
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;)
You may not feel much love from all those in your life Jacob but I'm glad you tell me you know I do and your happy I make it a point to show you. I know how much it hurts to have a parent or step parent act like you don't exist just because they think they are perfect and you should be the one making them feel loved when no it's our job to make you feel our love. I love you very much.
Recipe for Mexican Vegetable Soup - This is my go-to soup recipe. My family has been making it for years and it instantly makes me feel like I’m living back in Mexico City. Hope all of you enjoy it as much as I do!
For right now this is my life. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I hate guys or that I think falling in love is dumb. I feel like if you wait around forever for just this to happen, then your life will be wasted. I don't want to be with some guy just to be with a guy. Whoever you want to be with should add to you not take away from who you are.
Another pinner said: I will need to try this... Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!!
How to string lights for Christmas tree - cool! Before I had only seen the "wind around and around until each strand runs out" routine. Maybe this would make replacing burnt-out strands easier? The whole article has good ideas from this veteran tree-decorator, like mixing sizes/types of lights.

Here is a nautical version of my popular wish bracelet, perfect for your beach parties, seaside weddings, and other special occasions! The wish bracelet is fabled to bring good luck. When you tie it on, make a wish. Keep wearing the bracelet, and when the bracelet wears off, your wish will come true! The origins of the Wish Bracelet have been attributed to ancient cultures across the globe. I first received one on a trip several years ago and my wish came true a few weeks later! I decided to start making them to spread the good luck! If you happen to be "tying the knot," what better way to wish your wedding guests peace, luck, and happiness than by giving them a sailor's knot wish bracelet as a wedding favor! The classic figure-8 knot represents the infinity of your love, and it's great for both men and women to wear. The Wish Bracelet also makes a lovely and meaningful gift for bridesmaids or close members of the wedding party. Imagine everyone tying on the bracelets the day of the wedding and wearing them as a symbol of unity and well wishes! The standard Wish Bracelet is handmade by me from eco-friendly, all-natural hemp cord and mounted on white cardstock printed with my Wish Bracelet verse.
yes this is hem i am obsessed ! Let me just say this: People are brilliant! Things that sound like they would be really silly, are so freaking cool, like lamp shades made with vintage doilies using the old paper mache technique and DIY yourself beaded chandeliers made with hanging baskets from the dollar store that look amazing! #diy #crafts pinterest.com/egifts/
Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
