Throat soothing tea: A natural cold and flu home remedy

We’ve had a case of respiratory sickness, since the week before thanksgiving. It all started when I went to observe a Montessori class in prep for enrolling Everly. The sick kids and germs were running rampant.

First Everly got sick, then Adalyn. Nathan got it next, then they passed it around a bit… I was the last to come down with it, just as everyone was getting better and just as Christmas was coming.

Recycled sweater purse and glove instructions

I had planned to publish the instructions for the cozy sweater purse in my previous post titled Homemade Christmas gift ideas, to-go boxes and purses… Oh my but the post became rather long and for the sake of the sanity of my readers I put the instructions here in a separate post so it could be found more easily. All you need to do to make this nifty little sweater gift bag/ purse is find an old knitted sweater or perhaps a nice wool seater that has been felted (or if you are like me it was mistakenly shrunk). Take your favorite purse pattern or draw your own. I'll post a my own free pattern here for your to print and use, please don't repost it though, link to this blog post...

We have about 8 Victoria's Secret catalogs that are piled up on our living room table. Each catalog has the exact same products in it just in a different order. Anyway I wanted to put them to good use somehow, I was going to use them to start the fireplace up or something. Tonight I came across a fun blog site that I was browsing.

I was trying to learn the fold tonight and I used paper from the wasteful Victoria's Secret catalogs. The boxes are actually really cute because of the catalog colors and print and the...

Holiday craft/ gift idea- Jar of….

I am a firm believer in the fact that sentimental gifts are more meaningful than store bought gifts and they can really brighten a persons day! If you are looking for a special but frugal craft idea this holiday season try this! Make a jar of gratitude, a jar of love or a jar of memories! This is so simple and so deep! All you need is a jar of your choice. Think about the gift recipient and decide what theme you want to use to decorate the jar. Once the jar is decorated you can fill it with strips of paper that have meaningful things written on them. For a gratitude jar you would write all the things you can remember that you are thankful for. Things that...

Cheesy Bone Doggie Treats and Snow

Well, Nathan and I went for an afternoon walk into downtown Flagstaff for some coffee and snacks. We took Dixie and ended up at Late for The Train to sit outside with our new doggie while we at pastries, drank coffee and got snowed on. Dixie loved the snow, my hands were cold but other than that it was a nice exercising walk. When we got home and thawed out I went searching for a doggie treat recipe that I could whip up. While I made the doggie treats I watched the snow from our kitchen window. I wanted to share the doggie treat recipe and the snow pictures with you. Cheesy Bone Treats 2 cups all purpose flour 1 1/4 cup cheese, any kind, shredded 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1/2 cup water Preheat oven...
