Recharging your blender pens

Sometimes, my blender pens get dried out and don't blend so well anymore. I found this fantastic technique to recharge the blender pen and make them good as new, without the cost of buying a new one.

Use a 5 ounce container wide enough to hold the blender pen's inner tube
Combine one ounce of glycerin (found in any pharmacy chain)
2 ounces of water,
and 4 tsp of rubbing alcohol

Using a pair of pliers to remove the tips and cello tube from the pen and place inside the mixture

Leave the tubes soak in your covered container over night

Reassemble your pen... wala, good as new!

Home made teacher gifts



Stampin is such a fantastic hobby, not only does it relax me, it is ample work for my ADD while watching TV.
I made this cute little desk set for my son's teacher today, I love that I can put my hobby to good use! What can be better than something I love doing, is relaxing and productive??

Anyywho, I used my All in the family set for this, the original idea was from another demo on my Late Nite Stampers site. She originally used on of Lauren Meaders templates for hers, I couldnt get mine to fit right, so I just winged it and made it up as I went along. I really like the way it came out. My two older boys informed me however, that it was not appropriate for their teacher, so I guess I will have to come up with something else for them.

Free Paper Doll SVG files


Remember when we were little, we didn't have all the fancy electronics and toys they have now. We didn't need electricity to entertain us, and there were only 3 TV Channels (did I just age myself?) We could entertain ourselves outside for hours, and our parents had to tell us to come in. When it was raining, we found simple things to amuse ourselves, one of my favorites, of course, was my Barbie Collection, but I also love my Paper Dolls just as much. I remember when Woman's Day or one of my mom's other magazines came out with new outfits every month, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! Tami, on my cricut lovers group created these fantastic paper doll princess files for use with your cricut and Sure Cuts Alot (SCAL). Be Sure to check them out!
