Homemade Finger Paint – A Father’s Day Craft

Homemade Finger Paint

finger paint

We have had a couple large paint canvases sitting in the basement for a couple years, and the boys found them the other day and decided they wanted to paint their Dad a Father’s Day gift.  We didn’t have any paint, so I quickly whipped up some Homemade Finger Paint and sat back and watched their creative juices flow.

Cleans, Brightens & Whitens – Removes the Toughest of Stains

OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover

Fall had come and gone and winter was here in full force. The thought of sitting out in the yard was furthest from my mind. Just before the first snowflake fell, I made sure that everything was tidied up and put away – except for the lawn chairs. Then the season began to change, the birds began to sing and the sun, that wonderful warm sun was calling out to me “sit outside and let my rays shine upon your pale skin”. After being out in the elements all winter long and through the rain in the spring, I thought that was it – they are garbage now. I admit it!  I am very guilty of doing this – more than once. You would think I would learn. Have you left your lawn chairs outside all winter long? Have you left them out in the rain? I am here to tell you that there is a cure! OxiClean will put new life into your chairs and as an added bonus, your guests will actually want to sit in them – now!

Gardening Tips for a Healthier You and Garden

Gardening
Hard on the body but Good for the Soul

Gardening Time

This weekend I unplugged from all things tech and spent the weekend outdoors tending to my vegetable gardens. I had built some raised garden beds last year plus made an enclosed garden space that were in desperate need of weeding. For two whole days I did nothing but pull weeds and turn over soil. I loved every minute of it but I will be paying for it later. Gardening is hell on the body but great for the soul. It’s my zen time. My time to relax and let my mind unwind.
