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

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.

Yes! Love this! Right when I was looking for a weekend DIY! Kiersten

A fab idea indeed, especially for a sun room or a deck.

Adorbs! To add on to what Taryn mentioned, eucalyptus is also very toxic to cats! For pet owners, maybe making this with dried lavender could a safer modification :)

Jessica is right. I do traditional gesso work (rabbit skin glue and marble dust on thick wooden boards for egg tempera) and you really want to incorporate the gesso as well as possible like she suggests. If you prefer, just turn your canvas 90* and keep slapping that stuff on. Awesome tutorial regardless of the slight oversight on that!
Jessica -Apr 08, 2016, 1:57PM
You shouldn't gesso all the same direction (so I've learned in painting classes and by experience...) Be kind of messy with it, like paint the gesso in all different directions, otherwise the canvas prove to be more difficult to paint on. ( I learned this the hard way)

Say goodbye to battles with dry skin!

Hello, my best beauty tips for dry skins is to use Cicalfate cream from Avene (french product). The cream is a little bit "thick" and "oily"when you put in on face, but it doesn't last and you get the best result for dry atopic skin...it's even a good one for spots and irritations, because of zinc and other soothing ingredients. Otherwise,after trying all kind of creams and potions, organic or not, i use "savon noir" from Tadé under the shower, jojoba or apricot or almond oil for face, body (and even hair) , which are by now for me the best for my" special" skin (very dry, with sometimes spots and redness!). Hope it will help some of you to save your skin and money! ;-)

This post is so relevant to me right now, thank you! I live in a pretty dry winter climate and just recently purchased my first humidifier--what took me so long?! It's been great for keeping my skin, throat, and eyes feeling ready to wake when I am. I also make sure to moisturize right out of the shower and before going outside.

How you can find the best second-hand deals!Read More

Excellent tips. I've been thrifting for years and agree with all of them. I love thrifting on road trips too! One things I'd add for newbies is don't forget to look up! In crowed shops anything can be hung from the ceiling. Though in most cases you'll find lighting baskets and railroad lanterns. Happy thrifting!
Hanna -Jan 29, 2016, 8:47AM
I absolutely agree about thrifting on the road. I used to live in a big city, and thrifting there was okay. Then I moved to the midwest. I have literally found antiques at Good Will! Sometimes it seems like attics are cleaned out after someone passes away, or for the first time in a century. And there are not as many people here to buy the merchandise, so prices are lower, too. (Just because I like to brag: I bought a vintage fur coat straight out of the 1920s for $30! And it's the warmest coat I've ever owned.) If you ever find yourself mind-numbingly road tripping through cornfields, then wheat fields, then more corn fields, take a thrift store stop along the way! It will be worth it.

I use it to scrub my bathtub so it's sparkly white again. A little baking soda + 3 drops of melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil A scrub brush and some elbow grease. And my bathtub is like-new! Lots of baking soda love, Tawny www.TawnyMcLeod.com

Notorious definition, widely and unfavorably known. "Notoriously good" = Oxymoron. As I was reading, I wondered about the advisability of using something that scrubs ovens and unclogs drains on my face and I see in the comments I was right to be wary. I also wonder about the long-term effects of spritzing baking soda around the room and shaking it into the carpet. Perhaps too much of a good thing? This is the first article I've read on this blog, likely to be my last.

I love this idea! Very nifty! I was thinking of doing something similar with the boyfriend - perhaps in the living room or on the patio since we don't have a backyard. Something nice and intimate. doitcheaply.wordpress.com
