My daughter and I  have been having some fun lately. We started a Poshmark closet, so that we can “dress” the characters in outfits we think they would wear. 

This is one look we put together for Detective Grace Hutcherson from “Haunted Vision”.

Another Great Use for Hand Sanitizer

A few months ago I found out how great hand sanitizer was to remove ink stains from a purse lining and decided to try it out on other stains. Today I had a chance to find out if it works on makeup stains. 


  Resa was upset when she saw the makeup on her wacky day costume for tomorrow.



So, we rubbed in the hand sanitizer for a few minutes, and….


  Voila –  the stain is gone.  

I wish I had thought to take pictures of my previous efforts now. Hand Sanitizer also makes a quick and easy way to treat any stains that may happen “on the go”.   But please spot test any fabric before you treat any stains. 

Flocking an Artificial Christmas Tree for Under $10

This year Resa decided that she wanted a flocked Christmas Tree.

I had just purchased a pre-owned Christmas tree and decided to let her give this one a face lift. After reviewing several posts online we decided to combine two directions that we liked the best.

Since we already had the ingredients on hand, the cost for me was just the tree, but, even if you bought the ingredients at a local store, the cost is minimal. The most expensive ingredient is the glitter (which you may be able to find at Dollar Tree).

In a disposable bowl, I mixed:

1 small bottle white paint ($.50 at Walmart)
1 can of shaving cream ($1.00)
1 bottle of glue ($.96)
1 jar glitter ($3)

Stir ingredients well (I used a paint brush).

The one mistake I did make was that I decided to paint the tree inside – I would highly recommend that you do this outside as the mixture has a tendency to splatter.




Next carefully brush the mixture on the tree.



And, of course, my OCD daughter is making sure that she doesn’t miss a spot.


Now to wait for it to dry so that we can decorate it.
