Candy Pumpkin DIY

I mostly like Halloween for the candy.  When I was little my Aunt Carolyn handed out giant candy bars and Tootsie Roll Lollipops to her trick-or-treaters.  She was everyone’s favorite house in my community.  I thought it would be fun to create a twist on the typical trick-or-treat candy bowl that is socially distanced and everyone can get their own…

DIY Beauty Treatments

I’m a sucker for a good beauty treatment.  The quarantine has kept me out of my routine and I have the hair, skin, and nail blahs.  My skin (especially hands) and hair dry out and feel icky.  I prefer products and treatments that are more natural because I’m not sure how I feel about applying so many chemicals on my…

You’re stuck at home, bored, frazzled, and probably eating too much…. aren’t we all?  Here’s an idea to keep you occupied that’s likely free because you already have the materials inside your home, which is nice since most of us can’t leave.  I saw a version of the paper wreath at a high-end home decorating boutique.  It was versatile both…

DIY Cleaning Products

I hate chemicals.  Walking down the cleaning aisle in the supermarket or discount store makes me hold my breath.  Everything smells so strong and frankly gross.  The mix of hundreds of different chemicals down that one tiny aisle is dizzying (literally).  Are these chemicals really necessary to beat household grime?  Isn’t it ironic to introduce another chemical into your household…
