I needed more seating in my classroom around my small group table, so I saw where someone made stools out of 5 gallon paint buckets. I
for the kiddies
5 gallon bucket seating...do this instead of chairs for small group table, because 6 chairs don't all fit correctly. I want to make these!!!
For the Classroom
I saw something similar to this on pinterest and loved the idea. My students made the paper chains so it's a true classroom built tree.
Love this fun bench/reading nook made out of a old door! So simple! Now to figure out where I can add this in my house!
Oh my crumbs... I want a car like this where it's so small and compact that it squeezes into near impossible tight places..More like love it
I'm playing that game where the floor is made of lava, so I obviously can't get out of my bed or I'll die.
Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors.

Give each student colored index cards/post-its for their work space. During independent work time or group work, the students use the cards. A teacher I used to work with put red cards on popsicle sticks at the student work centers & prompted them to hold it up when they needed help, rather than calling out. Her classroom was always so quiet!
So many ppl on garbage day throwing out old wood doors. I am on the look ou for a smaller old closet door for a back yard table. I have 2 wood saw horses I can use as legs, and enough spare paint left over from an old project to paint it. such a cute idea.
They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor" But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s: Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!" Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold. In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat. Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust. Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake. England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer. And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring
From the original post:
" Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in.
I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me.
I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!"
burp cloth tutorial - I made some of these for my neighbor and she requested more because they worked so well. They are cute and way quicker than the ones where you only have a strip of fabric down the middle of the cloth diaper with ribbons and such.
I love the antique clawfoot tub in the upstairs bathroom of my grandparent's home I grew up in... The attic / converted bathroom it's in seems to have been built around it, because it's so small, there would be no way of getting it in, or out... Should my mother ever sell the house, it's pieces like this in it, I would want to reasure, if only for the memories...
To me this is so OBVIOUS. Once you love someone, you ALWAYS love them. Otherwise it wasn't LOVE to begin with. That doesn't diminish further relationships. It's simply an acknowledgement of where you've been that's made you who you are; part of being honest and secure. I didn't want to commit until I had qualms in the pit of my stomach, no little voices. And it was worth the wait.

Good Sam Showcase of Miniatures "Le Boulangerie" is a small shop by Polly Morris, Oakland Hills, CA. "My three friends (Melissa, Nancy and Rhona) all made versions of this Boulangerie. And, eventually, so did I. All of the bakery items and the flock of pigeons were made by me. I tried to get a first-thing-in-the-morning feeling, when everything is set out for the day."
DIY Chucky & Beetlejuice Halloween costumes Chucky: Description in the comments below. Beetlejuice: Suit from the Goodwill Store (my boyfriend taped stripes with duct tape and spray painted the suit white), make up, and a clown wig. We made our costumes last minute, so the suit still smelled like paint at the party that evening. I suggest painting and airing it out in advance.

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

1. Drink one glass of water every hour. It will make you feel full. 2. Drink ice cold water. Your body will burn calories just getting the water to a normal temperature to digest. Also it is great for your complexion. 3. Drink 3 cups of green tea daily. It will help boost your metabolism, plus its anti-oxidants make your skin look great. 4. Take vitamins daily. Do not take vitamins on an empty stomache, otherwise they have nothing to catalyze with. 5. Eat ice or gum when hungry. This will make your body think it had food without the calories. 6. Eat spicy foods. They raise your metabolism. 7. Take cold showers because your body will burn calories to heat you back up. 8. Brush your teeth so you won’t be tempted to eat afterwards. 9. Wear a rubberband around your wrist. Snap it when you want to eat. 10. Use smaller plates and utensils so it seems like you ate more. 11. Chew each bite of food thoroughly and then take a sip of water between bites. You will feel full quicker and will not eat as much. 12. Sleep at least six hours a day. If you get less than six this can lower your metabolism by 15%. 13. If you start to feel hungry do sit ups. 14. Pamper yourself! Give yourself a facial, paint your nails, anything to make you feel pretty. 15. Keep track of everything you eat to manage your weight better. 16. Keep good posture, burns 10% more calories when you sit up straight. 17. Make a list of all the “bad” foods that you crave and tend to binge on. Each day, pick one to take out of your diet that you cannot eat again. Take one off the list each day until there are no more bad foods you can have. 17. Avoid alcohol! A shot of liquor has 100-120 calories, a glass of wine has 80 calories, a lite beer has 110-120 calories, and a regular beer has 140-170 calories. 18. Avoid eating anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and then you’ll get hungry more. 19. The smell of coffee is thought to supress appetite. 20. Wear applied lip gloss. It makes you more aware of what’s going in your mouth. Also, flavored ones may help with cravings. 21. Have 6 small meals a day. 22. Low calorie hot chocolate curbs chocolate cravings, and makes you feel full. 23. Take a picture of yourself wearing a bathing suit or something equally important to you, look at it before you want to eat. 24. It takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full. 25. Eat lots of fiber. It makes you feel full and takes fat with it out of your body. The natural cleansing helps improve both your energy level and overall feeling of wellness. 26. Before you dig into that cake, bag of chips, candy, or whatever, take a deep breath and count to 100. Usually by the time you get to 100 you will have coninced yourself that you don’t really want it. 27. Celery actually burns calories. Every hour eat a stalk of it. Not only will it fill you up, but it will also get your metabolism kickin’. 28. Read the nutritional information. Remember, fat-free does not mean calorie-free. 29. Keep an eye on fiber content. Get as much fiber into your diet as you can, while cutting fat and calories. 30. Don’t eat a lot at once. Spread your food throughout the day. This will help to avoid binging and keep your metabolism going. 31. Avoid alchohol. 32. Do not eat in front of the computer or TV. This distracts you from recognizing you’re full. 33. Stay away from Slim-fast and other so-called “healthy” candy bars and shakes… one look at the nutition facts will tell you why. Save yourself the money, and the calories. Buy yourself some flowers instead -- they make you happy. 34. When having cravings try drinking a tall, icy glass of water with slices of lemons or oranges -- sometimes what you think is hunger is really thirst. 35. Remember, an occasional binge doesn’t hurt, in fact it’s quite beneficial if you have reached a plateau (stopped losing weight). Just don’t binge too regularly! and finally, 36. Love and respect yourself and your body.
