This is something I make often because My kids love to give me bouquets of flower-heads or flowers with teeny tiny stems. This was done with things I had lying around the house. You’ll need.. Flowers, you can use the whole thing or just the flower-heads. I chose to use whatever I could to stuff the jar up to the top. Mason jar or in this case I upcycled a spaghetti jar that was in the recycle bin. A brown paper bag or a small piece of scrap fabric to cover the lid of the jar. Just make sure that the piece is bigger than the lid...

  When they were all younger just going to get milk could take me over an hour. Whenever I could avoid taking them all, I would. Yesterday, my mom opted out of one of my ‘quick’ (never really quick) trips to the supermarket. I started thinking about why I’d rather have her there in the first place besides her being my mom and all. The answer in short is simple .. Because things can get crazy and it’s always great to have backup. Thinking of the good ol’ days when they were all toddlers I remembered...

I got this camera from a loved one for my birthday and I have to say that it stands up to my telescope when it comes to getting up close to the moon. I’m a novice star gazer but nonetheless this camera gets me almost as close as what I can see with my telescope. If you’ve ever had a telescope and especially if you’re inexperienced using one like I am then you’ll know that finding things through the lens can be tricky. With the Nikon Coolpix p530 it’s easier to locate the moon while I’m all the way...

  School starts for my two oldest girls tomorrow and while my kids are excited about the school year beginning (k & 3rd grade) they’re both a little nervous about bullies. Every year my daughter has been picked on and I’ve learned a few things that might help you and your child if you suspect bullying. Here are 8 ways we’re going to stand strong against bullies this year. Sibling rivalry is bullying. If they weren’t siblings then would you think it were bullying? It shouldn’t be tolerated...

Revealing too much.. A few months ago, I was dumped by the father of my kids and my best friend shortly after. I never saw it coming. OK, maybe a little. I’ve know my friend for 6 years. She was getting married to a guy that she couldn’t stand months earlier but nonetheless I did everything I could to support her and help her wherever I could. At the wedding I remember feeling so happy and sad at the same time. Of course I cried for reasons I still can’t understand. At home I was focusing on the kids meanwhile neglecting...

There’s a rumor going around that eating healthy on a budget costs more but did you know that buying fresh foods without coupons will save you more in the long run vs. buying junk that’s on sale? You will save more and it all comes down to getting the nutrients that you need so your body isn’t yearning for snacks. We all know how important labels are. Did you know that there’s often a little trickery that goes into the way things are packaged and the sale can be hard to spot if you’re not looking in the...

Have you explored all of your options? Whenever someone walks into my house for the first time and lays eyes on my big silver tank they almost always respond with “Wow! You must really like coffee”. That my friends is NOT a coffee tank, it’s my Berkey water filter and it saves me big bucks!!! I used to buy bottled water because I lived in a bottled water fantasy. I pictured water from an ancient glacier or some isolated brook in the middle of nowhere, trickling through mineral rich rocks and ending up in a...

Popcorn, Garlic, Herbs.. There’s nothing quite as traditional as popcorn and family time.  Whether we’re watching a movie or just sitting around yapping, popcorn makes it better.
