1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Great gifts for oral fixation folks! Toothpicks with taste. on: February 02, 2011 10:52:26 AM
This is great idea and something I've never considered. I bought my husband one of those metal toothpick holders that he can stick in the pen slot of his uniform (he always has a toothpick and he will put a bunch of loose ones in his pocket, which seems really gross and linty). I looked at a bunch of flavored toothpicks to add to the gift but they were pretty pricey and didn't come in any flavors I thought he would like.
Then I saw this and found this site, https://www.lorannoils.com/c-6-super-strength-flavors-candy-oils.aspx
so mango flavored toothpicks are soon to come to my house!
Thanks for sharing!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My first completed quilt (x2!) - 2 identical baby quilts on: October 04, 2009 08:41:23 AM
Beautiful! Love the theme and the colors are great.  I'm very attracted to all things 'nature' themed!

I just wanted to share the ones I've made so far.

I even used them at the store the other day and they were so great! I felt like my groceries were so secure, if that makes any sense. I didn't add the pocket to tuck them into since I figure I'll just leave them in my car or on the same table I put my bag when I come home so I'll always have them.  I love these idea for gifts, though.  I have a picture in my head of five or so of these bags in the same color/pattern (w/ the pocket) all tied up with a pretty ribbon.
Ummm ... sheleibean: I think you posted the wrong picture.  This one is a pic of a fly with a watch.  (Perhaps it's something you made and meant to post elsewhere...? You've probably already been called on this.

Ignore me...

Whoa- that's not even my picture. I don't know why my photo of my bags isn't there- I"ve never seen that picture before.

sorry i can't name them we just have these things with big slightly variegated green leaves they don't smell like anything in particular but the rooms they're in always smell fresher than those that don't have them
I *think* I know which kind you mean.  BTW, I juiced something like 15 limes the other day for margaritas and remembered to save a few shells.  I stuffed them full of sea salt and put them in a dish. It's been about a day and the room doesn't smell limey but it's not so doggy/dusty smelling.  Like how unscented soap makes things smell clean not like a fragrance. It's nice. I'd like to try it w/ a bigger citrus fruit, like an orange or grapefruit.

Maybe resin...I know I've seen some resin braclets on here filled w/ candy so maybe you could sink cookies in it. Honestly I'm not sure Idon'thave any experience w/ the stuff myself but check out resin jewelry.

Thanks so much for the idea y'all! I mostly already do most of these things: i.e I use white vinegar in various dilutions/mixtures for cleaning just about everything- reused some spray bottle and hit up the dollar store for some others.  Last week I used olive oil w/ some orange EO to clean and polish my kitchen cabinets. I've been infusing vinegar with bits of citrus fruits that would otherwise go to waste, using a 1:1 mix of baking soda and borax on a wet sponge to clean our showers.  I've also been using homemade laundry detergent w/ white vinegar in the fabric softener cup instead of commercial products- I really love this as the clothes are clean, soft and fresh smelling while I saved $$$. 
we have lots of plants around to help keep the air fresh, i also use bowls of hot water with a few drops of EO in it
to keep the fridge smelling fresh I've been recommended half a lemon packed with sea salt, haven't tried it yet
and for general cleaning purposes, borax, it cleans almost anything (really, I've used it to removed blood stains (martial arts rock) and food colouring (i like to get experimental when i cook) bathroom grime everything)
Borax is a freakin' miracle product and I can't imagine how I was ever sold on something fancier.  I've heard of the salt filled citrus shell before- haven't tried it yet, but I may soon.  Can you reccommend some plants specifically to clean the air? We have a few- some spider plants, a pothos vine and some others I can't really identify.

Vacuum I add cotton wool ball or makeup-pad with few drops mint oil the whole house smells minty and fresh.

Do you put that inside the vacuum? Like the bag/canister? I like this idea a lot

I'm in the process of switching from buying anything commercially made to clean my house/do laundry/unclog drains/ you know, house work related to homemade DIY type solutions. So far I'm pleased w/ my results and of course the money/plastic/chemicals I don't waste or use.  Of course there is a plethora of information available i.e. recipes for cleaning solutions and the like. 
I'm looking for more input- do you make your own household cleaners? If so what is your magic formula? 
Also I have this idea to make my own furniture wax, but I'm not all that sure about how to start experimenting. Ideally it would be a more spreadable beeswax concoction, but how do get there? the more spreadable part I mean. Any ideas?
Also- some DIY freshening (like air freshener but not as gross) ideas would be most appreciated haven't found anything I'm especially pleased with.

Thanks y'all! It was truly a labor of love.
Those ads freak me out even in cake form.
Umm.. word... kind of. in the commercials it always looks like the money is smiling, but it's a creepy I- might-hack- you- up kind of smile? I understand how you feel .  what can I say? My kid is strange. He also has a similar affinity for the Aflac duck- so much that he calls ducks Aflac's.

hahahaha, how awesome is that?!  Great job, I honestly thought it was a plush (I can't believe how realistic it looks and it's made of cake!)
Thanks a lot! I had this perfect image in my head before I started and just like everything else it didn't come close to the picture in my head- I had waaaaaaaaaaay too much faith in my patience and bagged the idea of a really piping all of the details on the $5 dollar bill.

This is the only picture I have of boy and cake together- but there was a lot of standing in front of the cake stand before grandma/grandpa came over to eat saying, "I have to see the money. Can we eat the money?"

I guess there are some other pictures, but they're all so blurry- his excitement made it really hard to stay reasonably still.
