Changes are all around us.

I am going to change things up and get back to blogging. Even though I doubt that anyone will follow. I do this not so much for others and for myself.

I am starting to journal more. I have some new ideas and some ideas that are definitely inspired by others. I will try and find those who inspired me and give them credit. If I miss someone please accept my apologies.

Boot Cutts

 Here is a pair of boot cuffs I crocheted. They are 7" x 16" of brown with off white trim. 34 rows of double crochet. First row just double crochet then added button holes and 1/2 row for buttons at the end. The off white trim was 2 rows. the last row I added picots.

. These cuffs are a gift and not made for these boots, but I think you can get the idea.

 Congratulations to Kamalah for graduating from Twin Falls High. Putting together a small party for her was quick and simple. The sandwich stand was made with an upside down margarita class glued to a square white platter. The total cost under $2. Even though there were forks, every thing was finger friendly. Veggies were in cups from Zurchers, with a squirt of dressing in bottom. Easy and quick.
Banner was double sided, so both sides could be read by all approaching. The "K" was signed by all well wishers and can be hung in her room at college.Cut out of black core foam board for $1.59 at Walmart.  Cork bulletin board was cover with black poster for give a school black board effect. The picture of graduate were hung on grad had garland, from dollar store.

Know I have not posted for quit some time. But that will change through the summer.

Next best thing to Helium

Janice MansonWagga's Home Remedies
Instead of using Helium gas to fill the balloons you could use a mix of vinegar with baking soda.
1 plastic bottle
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3 tablespoon of vinegar
*Add the baking soda in a balloon using a small funnel.
*Add vinegar to the bottle. 
*Place the balloon on the bottle and then lift up the balloon letting the powder reach the vinegar. 
*You will see some bubbles forming and the release of dioxide carbon gas.
Vinegar is acid and when it finds the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), the CO2 is formed.
