Moving Again!

This post brought to you by CLR . All opinions are 100% mine.  This is what my life looked like exactly a year ago... thanks to my sis-in-law for helping me get it all packed tight! And quite frankly what it looks like now! My husband is finishing up his training here and we are off  to start a new chapter in a different state! The thing is, I don't despise moving. I like to re-inventory what I hoard and de-junk... or find stuff that has been missing for years--I know there is a lego  guy hand behind my tall desk and it will be found very soon! (thank the {then} 3 year old for that one) The worst part about moving for me, isn't camping out for weeks... traveling across the country...constant backaches from  lifting way more than I should... having yard sales...staying in cheap hotels... or the inevitable casualties of those  "things that didn't make the move"! Know what it is? It's the cleaning. Cleaning and

Applying Vinyl Decal Sticker to stuff...

Sometimes I assume that people know how to do everything  I know how to do...and I don't usually go over basics. So if you don't know how to apply vinyl, this is for you. If you do, let me know if you have tips you'd recommend. If you are applying decal to a car... clean the surface off with rubbing alcohol. Start with your vinyl decal Peel off the vinyl backing paper Position sticker where you want it... Rub with a credit card...or library card Be sure to rub the edges and corners well. Gently pull back the transfer paper. peel it back over the sticker...rather than pulling up. Check corners and small pieces while you peel back, rub with card again if necessary... admire. Same technique with applying vinyl to wood, walls or other surfaces... Linking up to THESE parties this week!

Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Dr. Seuss is my favorite children book author! I love that good values and morals are taught through silly words and funny animals! Since Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2nd, Saturday  it's time to plan some fun activities!  Start with the essential "Green Eggs and Ham" for Breakfast! Or have some Butter Battle Book Homemade butter! Here's how to make it: You need a jar with lid (I use a mason jar) 1 marble Heavy Whipping Cream Pour cream in jar It should be 1/2 full. drop in the marble Screw lid on tight Shake! Let kids shake that jar...about 20 minutes until it's  hard to hear the marble moving around. Actually...I read "The Butter Battle Book" to my kids while they  took turns shaking up our jar of cream. When the book was over, the butter was ready! Then open it and spread the creamy butter on some toast... --Butter side up or down? Yummy!  (you can add salt, but we like it just like this) Maybe you&#

Double Bladed Lightsabers!

Pool Noodle Lightsabers! We used some pvc pipe that we got free...spray painted the center area black Cut these noodles in half...and shoved them on the pvc. Perfect lightsaber duels all year long! Complete with Star Wars costumes ! Linking up to THESE parties this week!

A Little Aqua Door!

I got this cool antiquesque door knob thing from my sister-in-law. And I tried to think of something cool to do with it...I have 2 more too! I had some old fence boards and old cabinet frames...both scrounged. Aqua paint!  Yes, I bought more on the clearance rack! I used petroleum jelly to distress the frame. Cut and added the distressed boards... Used e6000 to glue on the knob! Perfect!  It's not quite a "fairy" door...but maybe a hobbit door, but not round... Linking up to THESE parties this week!
