Fabulous Baking Soda

Banking Soda has a ton of uses! Not just baking. I using it for scouring messes in the kitchen. Freshening up the litter box and laundry!




I bought this 5 lb bag at Sam's Club for about $5. But check your local warehouse store such as Winco. I can get bulk baking soda for about $.30/lb. So that is about 5 lbs for $1.50!! BIG savings!

I re-used an old spice container and filled it with the baking soda.


When you have a mess, such as stuck on food on pans or the counter just sprinkle on some baking soda spritz it with your vinegar/water mixture. Let sit and then wipe right off!








I also use baking soda to freshen up the litter box.

Ingredients:
~old spice container
~baking soda
~essential oil

Another re-used spice container.

Fill it up with baking soda.

drip in 10-15 drops lavender essential oils. Shake up.


This truely smells amazing. I also use it as a carpet freshener.
Sprinkle on the carpet. Vacuum up. Wala!




Lavender Essential Oil- purchase at any vitamin store.




















Always be sure to label your baking soda. This is not to be used as a baking ingredient!!



















I highly suggest this book as a great reference: Baking Soda By: Vicki Lansky

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
