I make a mean pair of slippers. I have been making them for almost 3 years. There seems to be one problem with them. I am using regular jiffy grip for the soles ( the kind you get at Joanns...) and it seems to be wearing out well before the rest of the slipper. any ideas on something better I could use for the non skid? Thanks!
My MIL likes to have the kids make the centerpiece for our table. I seen the ideas for the apple turkeys and came up with this. We used a pumpkin that we grew, traced hands for the tail feathers and the wings are youngest DD feet. we then glued toothpicks to the back sides and poked them in the pumpkin. Super easy and we can add to it next year--starting with a new pumpkin of course http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/ivamarie_photos/1122071531.jpg[/img]]
Along the same lines as the polymer clay, roll several "snakes" of each color (maybe even mix some to make purple or orange or...) then lay all your snakes together to make one big snake, roll it just enough that it is solid. (You might have to refrigerate it for a bit before slicing..) Then slice and bake for polka dot cookies. Now I'm hungry...
Tomatoes are high in acid, so you could use the hot pack & inversion methods. Cook your sauce, make sure to heat it to boiling just before putting it in jars. Sanitize your jars/lids. ( You can run your jars through the dishwasher to do this, boil the lids and rings...) After you put everything in your jars (MUST be hot!!), make sure edges/tops are clean, put your lids and rings on, turn your jars upside down for 10 minutes. Turn them upright, let them cool and listen for the lids to pop as they seal. No canner needed. Hope this helps!
