A Very Fast Homemade Valentine's Card

Are you a procrastinator like me?  There's nothing like last minute.  Luckily, time crunches can inspire great ideas.



This Valentines Day card is very simple, requires minimal supplies, and above all else, is creative and handmade.  The ultimate display of affection is assembling something with your own massive, callused, hairy hands.

All you will need is:


  • Heavy paper (Use what you have:  card stock, a cereal box, a manilla folder, even construction paper will work in a pinch)
  • Newspapers, magazines, junk mail (Anything with lots of big letters printed on it)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers

 The assembly is quite simple:


  1. First, fold the heavy paper in half to form a card.
  2. Next, cut out letters from newspapers and such to make a message of your choice.  Since the card has a ransom letter look to it, you may want to make your message pretty ransom-ey.
  3. Cut out hearts from any kind of paper you'd like.  I used a combination of construction paper and newspaper hearts on my card.
  4. Glue the letters and hearts to the front of the card, and allow to dry.
  5. On the inside of the card, you can glue a rectangle of newspaper or other paper and write your message on that.  (I had originally planned on continuing the ransom letter look on the inside, but I got tired of cutting out letters, so chose to just write a message instead).
And you're done.  I told you it was easy.  :)  Happy Valentine's Day!

Why Did My Chicken Lay That Strange Egg? {Decoding 10 Chicken Laying Issues}

What do you got?

A huge egg with two yolks in it?  A wrinkly misshapen egg?  An egg with a soft shell?  Or perhaps the all-inclusive just plain weird looking egg?

It's Not Weird to Have a Tub of Leftover Soap Scraps {Recyled Soap Scrap Bars Recipe}

Are you looking for ways to save money?  Who isn't nowadays?

Every little thing you do helps and the small things really do add up.  Which is why I have a somewhat creepy tub of soap scraps in my bathroom.






I admit, it seems a little weird to save soap scraps, but it wasn't always this way.  In fact, they used to have little contraptions for saving your soap scraps.





But those days are gone.  Or are they?

I think frugality is making a comeback--at least, it is around here, because I save all our soap scraps.  What do I do with them?


Recycled Soap Scrap Bars

If you are regular users of bar soap, a family of four can easily manage to get six additional bars of soap per year by saving soap scraps.  It doesn't seem like much, so I'll write it this way instead:  in ten years, that would be 60 bars of "free" soap.  There, that seems more impressive.

Ingredients:
Soap scraps
Water
Herbs (optional)

Homemade Drain Cleaner

To avoid clogging and bad odors, sink and tub drains should be periodically cleaned.

A once a month cleaning with a non-toxic, homemade cleaner prevents needing a stronger, usually sodium hydroxide (lye) based, cleaner to remove clogs.  Sodium hydroxide is extremely caustic, and will damage the lungs if inhaled, burn skin and eyes, and can be fatal if swallowed.  In addition, the heat generated by using sodium hydroxide can soften PVC pipes, and damage old, corroded pipes.  It also changes the pH of water and can cause fish kills.

A much nicer alternative to this harsh chemical is the simple combination of baking soda and vinegar, followed with boiling water.  When baking soda and vinegar are combined, they foam and expand, cleaning the sides of your pipes and dissolving fatty acids.  The boiling water then washes it all away.  This method is a great way to use up the box of baking soda in your frig that is not longer doing a good job of deodorizing.

Ingredients:

1 Cup baking soda
2 C…
