651  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tips for keeping ants out of pet food bowls? on: July 17, 2006 12:48:16 PM
If you go with the bowl in a bowl idea, put a little bit of dish soap in the water to break the surface tension. otherwise the ants will walk right accross it!

I am a HUGE fan of Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil. (Original scent. I know many people don't like the smell, but it's SO much better than bug spray!) when I had cats and ants, I would put a little ring of it around the bottom of the bowl, and the ants would stay away. I also used to soak a cotton ball with it and place it where the ants came in. Then they wouldn't come in. Sure, I had cotton balls all over, but that was better than ants! and non toxic too! And very affordable! hooray! After awhile, I didn't have ants anymore. previously? my apartment was absolutely infested.

I have a way cool jar that came out of my great grandparent's house. I've had it for years, but I couldn't bear to get rid of it so it floated around for awhile.

Then I moved into an apartment with a (inside) door that wouldn't stay open.

I wandered around a bit and inspiration hit!!

I dumped in my marbles, sealed it up, and voila! instant door stop! It looks very vintage 1930's (the jar is, the marbles not) and now I never lose my marbles.

Okay, this isn't that creative.  But it's a good idea to take an unwanted CD or two on camping or hiking trips to use as a signal mirror if you get lost or injured.  They are better than mirrors because they are lighter and break less easily.  I don't know if you can starta  fire with one, though...For more on how to use a signal mirror, go to:


Plus, a signal mirror should have a hole in it anyway so you can see the plane and direct yor signals accordingly! What a fantastic idea!!

I might be too late but, maybe all the goodies for ONE craft type so you don't overwealm her????Or a good book on different crafts and a gift card to a local crafty store? That way she could choose what she wants to do and buy all the stuff to do it. A little bit of everything might be too much...Especially for someone who doesn't think sh'es crafty.
