What is going to motivate you this year? A good book? Writing a book? Designing? Painting? If you have read a good book let us know. If you have hidden gems of resources for inspiration we should check out let us know. I want to hear from you!!
I was listening to the radio this morning and they posed a question: Who actually listens when their significant other says “Don’t get me anything.” So I guess I will ask you the same question. Do you mean it when you say Don’t get me anything, or would your feelings be hurt if you didn’t get anything g? Let us hear what you think or how you would feel by the statement: “Don’t get me anything.”
How about a Christmas craft to get your juices flowing?
Have you finished your bottle of wine yet? When you do, wash it out very good and allow it to dry.. You can remove the paper around it while it’s wet or leave it if you wish.
Take a piece of burlap. Easy to get at any store. Fit it around the middle of the bottle and cut, leaving just enough to over lap the other end. Using hot glue, fasten the burlap in pace being careful not to leave lumps. I like to apply the glue to the very top and bottom of the burlap, so as not to leave lumps in the middle portions.
Take your favorite decorative Christmas ribbon and cut it to fit around the top and bottom edges of the burlap. Glue in place just as you did the burlap.
If you aren’t artistically inclined, take a Christmas stencil of your choice along with some fabric paint. Place the stencil where you want the picture to be on your burlap and paint it onto the burlap. This can also be done prior to gluing the burlap to your bottle.
You are ready to insert small battery operated lights inside your bottle and enjoy. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas.
HOUSEHOLD TIPS AND TRICKS
Household Tps and Tricks :
- Use a 🥔 potato peeler on your stick of butter to get a nice thin slice of butter for your toast.
- Clean those shower heads. Mix equal parts white veniger and water. Put into a plastic baggie. Wrap the baggie around your shower head and secure with a rubber band. Let soak for an hour then remove. Wipe the loosened build up from the shower head and enjoy.
- Debunk couches and dog beds. Sprinkle the surface with baking soda let sit and vacuum away the odars.
odors. Are just a couple tricks that I have used myself. If you have any you would like to add let us know.
