Homemade Whitening Toothpaste Update

Homemade toothpaste is one of those things that has about as many variations online as brands you can buy in the store. I think for the majority of us, it becomes a matter of personal preference, what you are looking for the end result to do for you and what items you already have on hand. Other than the essential oils, Most of the items you already have on hand and it takes only a few minutes to whip up a batch which will last you about month for only pennies. Compare that to $3.00-$6.00 per tube for the commercial toothpaste that is FULL of chemicals, most of which you cannot pronounce and the choice becomes pretty obvious!

How to make a Quilt from Outgrown clothes - Tshirt quilts


I had totally forgotten how much I really LOVE to sew! It has been a very long time, years actually since I have had the time to sit in front of my machine and get lost for a weekend. I finally decided a few weeks ago it was way past due.
I have always enjoyed making blankets, quilts, pillows, curtains and only occasionally clothes. With a week full of birthdays at Thanksgiving week and Christmas quickly coming in....... I realized I had never made my granddaughters any blankets or quilts. I guess I was just always to busy enjoying them and watching them grow to have that kind of time commitment.

Let the search for the "perfect gift" hunt begin.

 It is hard to believe that we are almost at the beginning of October already! Where did the summer go? As the weather cools off and the fall garden is all planted I am in my beginning phases of what to get the children for birthdays and Christmas.


And then in came this super cute little Dinosaur - Perfect timing!
