A Kid’s DIY Jet Creation

No Cost Kid's DIY Magnet Creation

Quickly wanted to share this crazy cool DIY jet creation with you. My son was helping me with a couple wooden signs I made recently.  He was screwing in the screws and stripping them making metal shavings.  So he got one of our magnets to clean up the metal shavings (smart kid, hey!) Well, I was painting, so he was a bit bored so he made this amazingly creative jet out of the screws we were using and the magnet. I'm just so impressed that it completely came from his imagination and nothing else.  Not even sure where he got the inspiration from as there isn't any jet models or pictures in our garage.  It is even more impressive that it came from a 7 year old's mind, just his mind.

Hex Performance Product Review

Hex Performance Product Review by a mom of hockey players

I had the pleasure of trying out the Hex Performance products to wash my boys' (and my husband's) stinky sweaty hockey gear. There’s a smell that can build up in gear and athletic apparel that doesn’t come out, no matter how many times it’s cleaned. The car, house, and environment become a smelly locker room and forces a quarantine of gear in cold garages (or anywhere to be free of that smell!). HEX scientists have created a new formula designed specifically for performance gear and apparel that truly cleans and removes unwanted odors and bacteria from performance gear and apparel. Hex Performance has a 2 part system to clean and to keep the active gear odor free for up to 30 days. I … [Read more...]

DIY Furniture Makeover – Sewing and Painting

DIY Furniture Makeover

HI!!  Hey, it's been awhile.  Trust me it's not because I haven't had anything to say or to share, it's just because I have been busy DOING things.  You wouldn't believe all the projects completed and on the go. We have had this bench seat for years and I've threatened to donate it for years.  BUT, I decided I could totally do something funky with it.  It just took years to get just the right inspiration and time to make this DIY project happen.  It's all about perseverance, right? Here is this tropical bench begging for a facelift... Can you believe it hung around for as long as it did?  Like, I'm seriously talking YEARS! Clearly, from the next picture you can see that it … [Read more...]

A St Bernard and a Hedgehog – Unlikely BFFs

st bernards are so gentle

Little did we know when we got a hedgehog that we were going to adopt a dog.  Little did we know we were going to adopt a dog when we got the cutest hedgehog that we were going to adopt a 150lb St. Bernard. Little did we know how well our St Bernard was going to adapt to our home and become so immediately comfortable with our people.  Little did we know that he actually wouldn't want to eat our hedgehog but that he always wants to be next to her or just close to her. There isn't a time that we can remove Mackinnon (our hedgehog) from her home that Beethoven isn't RIGHT there.  He wants to just be close to her.  It really is the cutest unlikely match of the smallest of small and the … [Read more...]

A year of short hair

A woman's year long journey of growing her hair out after shaving it off to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research

Last year, I willingly and excitedly shaved my head bald to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research through a great organization called St Baldrick's.  It's a world wide organization that raises money and those raising money, in turn, shave their head at events all over the world.  They occur on various days at various venues (Irish Pubs are huge sponsors) and they take place in around St. Patricks Day. It is an experience that can change many lives in different ways.  It can change a child's life, a child's family's life, and the shavee's life.  For women shavees, it can perhaps mean something different than men shaving their heads.  For women, hair and their hairstyles often define them … [Read more...]
