Skul, Roses & Feathers Halloween Wreath


Pepper & Egg Breakfast Idea

Slice 2″ slices of any color pepper. Pull all white areas and seed and remove. Saute these in a little butter or oil to start to soften. When tender – add a light spray of oil to the center of each ring. Drop one egg into each slice. Flip onto other side. Adjust times to what type of egg you desire. What a colorful way to eat eggs – and fun at that. Would your child eat this?

My Share: Starry Laser Lights Halloween & Christmas



This is a really a great laser light decorating show system – so much better then the as-seen-on-tv versions.  I have posted a video that shows all of the functions of this system. I used it inside against our silver Christmas tree and it looks awesome.

One of the best features is it’s ability to change the light presentation. You can go solid colors of blue, green or red. You can do patterns that blink or are steady or you can make it move at different speeds.

One of the best features I like is the quality. It is made of all metal – the actual light itself and the bracket that holds the light that you attach to wherever you want to place the light. My only concern with this unit is that the bracket that holds the light only had one hole to place a screw into. Around Salt lake City (where I live) it get windy and the snow can come down pretty hard. I drilled one additional hole on each side to give me three holes to anchor it well.

The lights themselves are very bright and can be seen even in the dusk of early evening. Some of these units get complaints that they are not bright enough except for when it is pitch black – not this unit. It covers such a wide space that one unit could do most whole home fronts unless you have many angles and nooks.

I will be able to use this on many different occasions and not be limited to just Christmas. The red or red and blue or the blue and green or the blue by itself will work for Halloween. Red and blue will work for parties for Fourth of July or Memorial Day. The all green, blue and red could be used for birthday parties.

If you are worried, like I was before purchase, that these laser light shows that blink might cause seizures then this unit is right for you. Its perfect because you can completely remove the movement or blinking or seriously bring motion and blinking to an almost standstill.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in buying a quality laser light show system for not just one holiday but pretty much all of them.

Pallet Christmas Tree

trttryrtI always love to recycle and pallets are so cool to use right now because of their country rustic charm they give to your creations. The base is made from a 1.5′ and 2 6″ x 5″ cut pallet boards. These pallets lengths are 5″ wide so you will need to adjust your cuts to work with the width of boards you have. The tall board making the trunk is 4.58′ by 5′ board. The branches are made from 3.5′ – 3′ – 2.5′ – 2′ – 1.5′ – 1′  – 8″ x 5′ planks. All are fastened with wood glue and srcews to ensure it being secured. You will not be spray painting this unless you want a solid coverage. The tree pictured is meant to be rustic so use poster paint (to keep it cheap) and rub it on with a paper towel that has been dipped into the paont and then brushed off on newspaper. This ensures it has no dark and light spots but more uniform. This will allow the wood roughness to come through. You can sand paper the edges if you want to give a more rustic charm. You can also use a very light stain over the entire project to provide age. Just make sure to wipe a section of stain on and wipe it off. You only want the appearance of aging not a heavy coating of stain.
