Don't forget about the milkweed plants! It's toxic to some animals and insects but monarchs absolutely love it! They eat it to protect themselves from predators and they also lay their eggs on it!

Awesome article and video! I recently started a potted garden on my patio (small space garden woo) and made a watering can out of an old detergent bottle, painted it and made it so cute! One less thing in the Earth, as well as free! <3

Amanda - Monsanto is a horrible company, there's no doubt about it - and the world definitely does not need any more pesticides- but most GMO crops are actually better for the environment! Many are designed to be resistant to bugs and weeds without the use of herbicides! And no, they aren't cancer causing or bad for your health. GMO crops must be nutritionally equal to all their non-genetically modified food counterparts and are tested extensively before being released on the market. Take a look at golden rice, it's amazing what potential GMO plants have for bettering quality of life all over the world! I'm not saying you should go and support major corrupt corporations or anything, but we should all be pro-GMO if we care about the environment and animal welfare.

Thanks for sharing! However, the reason bees are dying is NOT a mystery. Some plants (like the ones you buy at WalMart or Home Depot), as well as crops are treated with an incredibly harmful type of pesticide called neonicotinoids, developed by Monsanto. This pesticide is essential to many GMO crops. That, and the fact that industrial beekeepers routinely take too much honey from hives and replace it with high fructose corn syrup. While it is so important that we do small things to help bees and raise our own consciousnesses about their impending extinction, we need to educate ourselves, get real about the facts, and take a stand. Here are some other things you can do to help the bees: - Eat local (organic) food - Grow your own food - Eat local honey (it's better for you anyway) - Do NOT buy plants treated with Neonicotinoids - Vote Non-GMO and speak out!

Thanks for this useful tip. Can we use that mixture for draperies?
Cheryl -Apr 01, 2016, 7:00PM
I'm confuse. How much do you use of each item. I have many whites that would love to be white once again. Please let me know and the others with the same concerns.

Batik is from Indonesia (and I'm Indonesian!) I did this when I was in primary school, but instead of using paintbrush we use 'canting'. Love this idea! :)
Pheby -Mar 27, 2016, 10:02PM
Lovely tablecloth! Well explained tutorial! I didn't knew before what Batik meant. I thought it was a kind of fabric. Now I know fabric is named after a technique. Thank you!

Great ideas! It's so hard to find time to do things with our bussy schedules and save money at the same time. Thank you!
Medayu Bestari Praja -Mar 11, 2016, 3:35AM
Lovely list! But I probably will have my 'me time' for the weekend after five days work. Well, I need to meditate or maybe go solo to some places that are actually already on my list but I just can't accomplished it yet. Most of 'em above, I love the idea of host a movie night, go to the flea market or even a local museum. x Dayu | PR.JA

Turn up your Easter eggs this year with this fun crystal experiment! Read More

Lily -Mar 17, 2016, 4:37PM
When you dissolve the crystals in hot water, it basically means that the salts took advantage of the energy of the hot water. As there is no more space between molecules in the solution, when the solution gets cooled the water loses its energy and the crystals are forced from the solution to become a solid again.
Kiersten -Mar 09, 2016, 3:33PM
Yes! Love this! Right when I was looking for a weekend DIY! Kiersten
