Where is she?

Hello Everyone!

I know I haven't posted in a loooong time, and I'm sure you are wondering what happened to me. Well, maybe you are wondering. I thought I would just post a quick update, because I have had a lot of traffic to my blog, thanks to my cheese dip post and Pinterest. The good news is that I am still alive!!! To keep a long story short, about 1 1/2 years ago, Senor Caliente had an accident, and to keep us in our home, I had to go back to work. I started working in an elementary school, and for some reason I haven't figured out yet, I decided that I had missed my calling. One year ago, I went back to college. So here I am, super busy, with a full time job as a para-pro and a full time school load. I am studying secondary education with an emphasis in English. Although I work at an elementary school, I know that little kids are not for me. I do, however, love teenagers! So, that's it, that's where I am. Don't worry, I still have lots of ideas swirling around in my head, and have been taking pictures of projects that I would eventually like to blog. I just don't have the time right now. Please feel free to post any comments or questions and I will definitely answer you, and please, please, please, pray for me!

Say goodbye to grease spots!

Hello again my friends! I can't believe it has been 5 months since I last posted. I am such a slacker....but really this summer has been cray cray! I have been wanting to get into a better habit of blogging...I know, I know I keep saying that, but I really mean it! Anyhow, I decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo this month and that means that I am supposed to blog EVERY DAY!!!! It's kinda scary, but I am going to do my best. I am getting today's blog in with only 1 1/2 hours to spare. Luckily. I took these pictures awhile back so I could blog my favorite grease stain remover. 

I don't know how it happens, but I always manage to get grease stains on my favorite shirts (maybe it's because I'm always dropping food on myself :)). In my journey towards making all of my laundry cleaning supplies, I stumbled upon this awesome recipe. The best part is that it even works on old stains that went through the dryer. I had a few shirts hanging in my closet that I couldn't bear to throw away and they were saved! YAY! So, I'm going to share with you today.

I only wore this shirt a couple times before I got the first grease spots on it, can you see them?

 My favorite thing about this recipe is that I can make it up whenever I need it, with things I always have around the house. You will need:

Baking Soda
Dawn dish soap

There are no real measurements just mix them up to make a nice paste.

Spoon some on the stain and scrub it in.
It doesn't have to sit, you can just throw it right in the washer. I hope you are able to salvage some of your favorite clothes with this grease remover. It's also a great stain remover. What's your favorite way to pretreat laundry? Let me know in the comments or comment and let me know if this worked for you.
Until tomorrow!

DIY Jelly Jar Soap Dispenser and face wash revisited

Happy PI Day!!!!! I am going to keep it short and simple today (or not). Maybe you remember (or maybe you don't) about the face cleansing cloths I posted about around a year and half ago. Check that post out because it is a finer example of my witty repartee writing skills and it talks about some of the awesome benefits of coconut oil. The cleansing cloths were awesome, but I have changed my process around and I thought I should share it with you. I actually changed my method last summer, but since that time all of my kids (heaven help me they're teens and tweens) have started using our face cleanser and their friends are so jealous of their dewy, sunkissed, acne free skin. Maybe it's just the acne free part. If you don't recall my previous method here is a quick picture tutorial of it:

The best Valentine's day EVER!

I am so excited about tomorrow. I REALLY love Valentine's day! I mean REALLY! What's not to love about a day that focuses on love. After all, Jesus spoke of love in the Bible several times. One of my favorite instances was in Matthew 22:34-40

The Miraculous Allergy Cure!!!!

Hello again Blogosphere!!!! I know, I have been slacking again, but hey, it's spring now so I am feeling motivated again (finally) and of course I am also feeling stuffy. I live in the fantastic state of Georgia where a pollen count under 1000 is like a summer day without frizzy's just not in the cards for me. I have suffered with seasonal allergies for a while and I have tried several medications for them, but they either didn't work well or they didn't work well enough to justify the side effects. I've been doing a lot of internet research in the last year or so trying to stave off boredom adopt a healthier lifestyle and I stumbled across some interesting information. I have found a natural, effective and somewhat cost friendly way to heal my

V is for victory rolls!

I'm baaaaaack! Well, at least for today anyway. I gave myself the goal of posting at least once more before 2013 finishes and today is the day. Hopefully, I'll be able to post a couple more times before the end of the year.

I have been obsessed with pinups and victory rolls for years. I always wanted to be able to wear my hair in victory rolls and for years have settled with just twisting it and pinning it on each side. However, all of that has changed!!!! I have been reading and watching lots of tutorials on the web and in the end I combined them and practiced a lot until I got the perfect Victory Rolls down pat....well at least in my opinion anyway.

DIY Chalkboard Platter

Hey Folks! Well, I have been letting time pass me by again. Things have been crazy around here since school started. First we had band camp and now that I have a child in High School I am a band parent (oh the joy!) Then, when things were starting to slow down and I was getting ready to start crafting and blogging again, my Sister had her baby and it was off to Oklahoma.....a very, very looooooong 15 hour drive. I'm back though and ready to blog.....well, at least for today anyway.
