Cool! Really usefull and sweet, I definitely agree with that "door stops are usually not so stylish". I made my own too! And got one extra chair 'cause the one is not anymore playing a door stop ;) Thanks!

Hi! Lovely photos. I could use a little guidance. I just bought Promarker's blender pen but nothing happens! Does it exists different kind of blender pens or why doesn't it work? Kind regards

Dear Blog creators, You have so many comments here, but you are not actually responding to them. Your post is creative, but you don't really explain steps in details. Just tried everything step by step and it didn't work. :((( You have to state what paper you use for the copies, how do you actually photocopy the images (clicking PRINT from the computer after you have actually scanned the film with all the images OR?), how long do you wait for the transfer to come through, etc. A bit disappointing. I'm sure your followers would appreciate your time to clarify these steps. Kind regards, Kriss

Vikki : do you add water or just the cinnamon powder alone?
Vikki -Apr 16, 2014, 7:12PM
Has anyone ever tried heating up cinnamon in a pan over the stove? It literally soaks up any unwanted scents! I do this whenever i cook fish or fry french fries or burn my food lol. So you just throw some cinnamon in a pan (maybe a table spoon.. or three) and you just heat it on the stove at low maybe medium low and just swish it around with a wooden spoon .. or fork whatever you've got to keep it from burning too quickly. And as soon as you see it darkening or smells like its toasting, throw it out. Don't bother opening the windows or anything because then it won't work. It'll take like a minute or two but trust me when i say your entire kitchen/ house will be odor free! I don't know how it works, I just know it works.

When it comes to makeup, foundation is one thing you definitely want to make sure is made of natural ingredients. An abundance of foundations on the market are filled with not-so-natural ingredients, potentially harming more than just your skin. But not this one. Read more »

Thank you for the post! I would try this at home, I think it's better to make your own than buy in the market because you can assure that it is safe to use.

Hi, I love the look on my skin, except the cacao powder seems to give me pimples every time I use it.. I got the organic all natural 100% cacao powder.. Has cacao powder give anyone pimple? I don’t know if I should keep trying. Thank you! : )

Why is it that dried flowers and herbs must be removed? I was wanting to make a toner with witch hazel, essential oils and some dried lavender flowers but wanted to leave them in for looks. Wouldn't the other ingredients act as preservatives to keep the flowers from molding?
Tomiko -May 18, 2014, 1:25PM
This looks delicious delicious as well as refreshing! I've always been confused about how a toner works though, when exactly should I apply it?

Lydia - It doesn't take much for coconut oil to melt. Just the heat of your hands will do it. If you keep the spray in your bathroom where it's usually humid it should pretty much stay liquid :). I keep a tub in my pantry in my kitchen and it never returns to solid form.
Lydia -May 05, 2014, 7:30PM
How do you keep the coconut oil from solidifying?

Tried making this with cool water sticky bumps and ended up with HUGE flames! The entire surface of the wax caught fire and made like 6" flames. Don't use sticky bumps. Or just don't light it. Very dangerous.

I just did this with some Ikea porcelain mugs and some Martha Stewart glass paints. They look beautiful, and after I baked them for 25 to 30 minutes they felt like the paint had set and dried nicely. I just went to wash one however, and with one fell swoop of my sponge, half of the paint came off. And I'm not even using fancy dish soap; I'm using doc bronners. Any suggestions on how to make the paint stay? Is there a sealant I should use or should I soak the mugs in some kind of acid first to open up the pores in the porcelain first? Any help would be much appreciated Thanks!
MandaMess -Aug 13, 2014, 8:03PM
you need to use enamel paint, or glass paint it is often called. you can find these at your local chain craft store (michaels, joanns, hobby lobby) and big box stores (walmart, kmart) martha stewart makes a line of glass paint and Plaid makes a line of enamel paints. acrylic paint will not stay on ceramic/glass/porcelain the way enamel paint does, since enamel paint is made for this type of project and the oven heat set makes it more permanent.
