Post image for DIY Fall Garland

It may not be holiday season, but there’s no reason we can’t celebrate fall season by decorating our homes with garland. Today we’re talking about making garland from an autumn staple: pinecones. This is a really simple DIY that is best done sitting around a fire (whether outdoors or in), laughing with loved ones. Maybe you can even start it off by taking a walk with friends, collecting pinecones and any other bits of nature that have fallen to the ground this season. Read more »

Post image for Homemade Natural 10-Minute Jewelry Cleaner

Cleaning your jewelry is the perfect way to give an older piece a fresh, new look. I have certain pieces that I wear almost every day, and I never realize how tarnished they’ve become until I give them a nice cleaning. Today I have a recipe for a homemade jewelry cleaner that can be made with materials that you’re likely to already have in your home. It’s incredible how well this cleaner actually works, and it only takes 10 minutes! Read more »

Great tip! I just found my favorite silver necklace is tarnished, but I have no time to take it to a jeweler. It just needs to be cleaned a little, so as I see I can do it at home. Thanks for the good idea!

Here is a trick I learned from a colleague in our cleaning company . Take a small piece of aluminum foil, about 1″ square, and put it in the bottom of a coffee cup. Add about a T of baking soda. Pour boiling water over it and dunk your jewelry. You can drop it in and swirl it around, or you can just dunk it a few times and it cleans any tarnish off in seconds. I like to put a twist tie or string on the jewelry and then just dunk it. When I pull it out, sometimes there are some little dark spots. I just rub them out with my finger. This works well on tarnished silver dishes or tableware as well.

Post image for DIY Mason Jar Cozy

When I was in Portland, I had coffee one morning at a place called Courier Coffee.  They serve their coffee in mason jars, and also sell adorable handmade cozies to protect your hands from the hot glass. I have plenty of mason jars here at work, so I was inspired to make my own mason jar cozy so that this winter I can use mason jars for my coffee at work! Read on to learn how to make your own.

Post image for Yarn Bombed Plants

Ever since I first saw images of yarn bombing, I have always wanted to have a go at it.  Yarn bombing is a form of street art that has spread throughout cities all over the world, and unlike permanent graffiti, it is easy to remove if necessary.  Artists have been choosing anything they desire to yarn bomb, from stand-up telephone booths to even cars. To see such vibrant colors on everyday objects is such a pleasing surprise. Read more »

Post image for DIY Jalapeño Muscle Rub?

Have you guys seen the new Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black?” It seems to be all the rage over here! …Although I only first heard of it recently, when our PR assistant was telling me about an episode where Piper (the main character) makes a muscle rub using jalapeño peppers. Read more »

Oops. Forgot to mention. Be sure to leave the top off the jar the second time or the alcohol won't evaporate.
Jld -Feb 06, 2014, 7:43PM
Hi. What you and Piper made was a crude version of this very effective salve for both Fibromyalgia and Back pain. The preferred way to make this is with dried hot peppers and alcohol and takes a little time and preparation. Begin with a package of DRIED jalapeños. Break off and discard the stems. Blend for 35-45 seconds (don't get too fine) and pour the blended peppers into a jar. Fill the jar with alcohol, rubbing or drinking, cover the jar tightly and let stand on the kitchen counter until the alcohol is infused with the hot pepper. (At least 24 hours). The alcohol will change color as it is infused. Once the mix is infused, strain the peppers out of the alcohol using cheese cloth or a fine strainer and pour the alcohol back into the jar. Put the jar in a warm sunny place where the alcohol can evaporate. Once the alcohol has evaporated you will have in the bottom of the jar the pepper oil. Now add it to the Shay or Cocoa butter. Use two parts butter to one part oil. If you have sensitive skin, cut back on the oil. The butter is stiffer than the oil so you will have to mix it with a spoon or stick. I use Popsicle sticks. BE SURE TO NOT GET THE PURE OIL ON YOUR SKIN. YOU CAN STORE ANY REMAINING OIL IN THE REFER. I suggest making a tiny amount to begin with until you get the percentage of oil to butter to your liking. Don't use it more than three days consecutively on any one place or it will irritate the skin. You can buy small containers for your preparation at stores that provide soap making ingredients or sell bulk lotions for massage therapists. Many natural foods stores carry containers as well.

Post image for DIY Oil Diffuser

One of the most important elements in creating a desirable home is having beautiful scents throughout. I usually love opening windows, displaying fresh flowers, and burning candles to achieve this – and now I have one more to add to the list: oil diffusers. I discovered that you can actually create an oil diffuser at home, and now I’m obsessed. Read more »
