1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Alternative Cake (gluten free) on: April 18, 2013 11:07:22 AM
Our daughter wanted everyone to be able to enjoy themselves and partake of the goodies at her bridal shower and wedding.  Several folks had medical issues or food allergies, so the cake was not a traditional one.  This is her gluten free cake, made from Fruity Pebbles!  The "cake" was covered with a fondant (easily removed for diabetics) that gave the look of a traditional tiered cake.  Fruit Rollup was used for flowers and ribbon trim.  It was colorful, tasty, and received lots of compliments. 



2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Recycling Small Stuffed Animals - Suggestion on: April 27, 2012 03:44:01 PM
Every spring and fall, my children go through their belongings, and weed out the outgrown items.  Clothes and toys get donated, repurposed, or sold in a garage sale with the money going toward their church camp fund.  They like helping others.  They also like that "responsible feeling" of deciding what happens to their things.   Most of their stuffed animals don't actually get played with.  There is the favorite cuddle-friend that gets hugged and lugged (slept with and taken everywhere), but others sit on shelves or in toy boxes.  Small ones especially. 

Some friends in law enforcement and in EMT/ambulance work said something that stuck in my mind.  When an incident involves a child (car wreck, for example), that child may get separated from the parent for some time.  Most ambulances don't transport multiple victims.  A small stuffed animal for the child to hold, can give comfort during this frightening time.  My friend's EMT/fire dept. crew keeps a small stuffed animal on their rig for such moments.  The crews don't get the critters back, and they need replenishing.  If you are looking for a place to donate your outgrown but good softies, this would do.   There isn't much space on an ambulance so please consider sizes.  Contact your local fire departments for a dropoff time.

I am Jeanne from Ohio and I love creating simple, useful things.  One day my goal is to make a quilt -- that takes lots of patience lol.  This site has terrific people and infinite ideas.  It will take time to maneuver about, but looking forward to learning.
