I always enjoy creative realistic uses for items we don’t really ever want. I usually just pop these off at the self-register and leave them – stores usually can recycle. Now I will have to grab a few and use them for bags of chips and other light bagged food products.
The inevitable always happens and it is one of life’s most devastating and depressing things we must go through. I found this pillow idea made from a shirt that the receivers father wore when he was alive. The patch was made by embroidering by a local sewing shop for not very much. The pillow would be easy to do by turning the shirt inside out sewing a square (sew just three sides) that ends between the collar, start of the sleeves and the bottom. Trim excess off. I would consider triple stitching it to ensure durability – it probably will get a lot of use. To stuff use stuffing bought by the bag or size the square to an old pillow to re-purpose. The shirt shown would need the bottom seam sewed down. I would leave the pockets useable so little keepsakes could be added to make the pillow feel even more like being close to the departed one. The patch would then need to be sewn on. Carefully hand stitch the remaining side after turning shirt right side out.
A simple frame and two heavy duty closet rod shelf brackets make a perfect setting for your ambitious little artist. Make sure brackets go secuely into studs because a lot of force can be done by a small child when he/she pulls the paper down. You also might want to add an outside door rug in front to catch scribbles that would otherwise end on the floor – or if the child is slightly older maybe they might want to paint and it will catch drippings. What a great idea!
How cute and simple – use non-toxic paints like finger paints. Make different colors and sizes by using different kids toes. Makes a great present for the Grandparents or a gift for Mothers or Fathers Day! Finish with straight simple lines for the stem and add an extra few strokes under the foot imprint.
It is so easy to forget where things are planted when you plant seeds. Here is a great idea to remember and also use to decorate your garden afterwards. You need to use paint like enamel and then coat with polyurethane to help make them last.
As a society male health is not a topic that is talked about much – well, except the occasional commercial for erectile difficulties. This is probably because men don’t want to talk or hear about it because most of us think we are invincible and only seek help when damage has already occurred. We also find that when urged by our partners in crime in life will reluctantly seek help. This should not be a topic not discussed.
I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to test the male Private Gym series now for over 2 months. What is the Private Gym you are asking?…..the Private Gym is a simple set of exercises that you do ten minutes a day, three times a week to help with erectile dysfunction and improve the strength of the muscles in male genitals. It is a simple technique with very quick and impressive results.
As men get older the pelvic muscles that control urine flow, erections and bowel get weaker. This can cause leaking of urine and uncontrollable bathroom issues as well as weak erections. If you make the pelvic muscles stronger you will improve erections, bowel and urinary control.
When I received the package in the mail it was discretely packaged not allowing contents to be known. I opened the box to find a very nicely packaged product that contained a booklet, step-by-step how to instructions on dvd as well as an instruction manual and the very important magnetic. Very impressive was my first thought.
I placed the dvd in my laptop (you can watch this on any device for added privacy) and was given an option of having a man or woman’s voice to talk me through the process. I watched the video for both the 4 week program and eight week program and found that the whole process would be rather simple and uncomplicated. The first four weeks are basic kegal and muscle improvement exercises. The second part brought in the usage of the weighted coupling.
I proceeded to complete the exercises in the four week program. It felt a little awkward but I followed through anyways. Doesn’t anything that is done for the first time seem awkward? I continued these exercises for the four weeks.
I then started on the second part of the exercises. The added weight did in fact force me to really work pelvic muscles and I could feel them working within the pelvic cavity. The exercises created no strenuous or difficult movements or anything that brings concern.
After using the Private Gym system for eight weeks I feel like everything is strengthened. The testimonials from test subjects on the Private Gyms website gave truth. The Private Gyms claims are also truth.
So if you are a man who is experiencing problems of incontinence, having to go to the bathroom often or have problems maintaining a full erection consider the Private Gym system – it is a small price to pay for something so important. If you have a male loved one with this problem – especially if they are embarrassed to seek professional help – encourage them to purchase the Private Gym system – you will be glad you did.

These are relatively simple and basic amounts of colored icing can be used. These would work at a wedding shower, rehearsal dinner or as little take homes for the guests when they leave your service. The tux lapels were done in fondue here but you could easily create this in delicious butter cream.
