New year, New you!
The new year is here so it is time to say our goodbye's to 2018, and welcome 2019 as a new person. One thing that one should do on January 1, 2019 would be reflect on the past and think of this new year as a potential to overcome hardships. Think of 2019 as a new chapter in your life.
The things I would like to overcome would be:
1.) Be nice to everyone!
2.) Stop over thinking
3.) Be positive
4.) Step outside my comfort zone
5.) Let go and Live!
You are the person who lives your life every day, reflect, be happy and live life to the fullest!
What does every parent love to get during the holidays? Why, photos of their family of course! In a few easy steps, you can take a standard photograph and have a beautiful personalized drink coaster for every member of your family! This thoughtful, homemade gift can cost as little as $5 to make, so it certainly will not break the bank!
4 small tiles (purchased at a home improvement store in the bath section)
Modge Podge glue
Printed photos (on copy paper from your home printer)
Step 1: measure your tile and print the photographs so that they are only slightly larger than the tile. Print.
Step 2: Cut the photo out and coat the back of the photo with Modge Podge using the paintbrush
Step 3: Place the photo on the tile and weigh it down with a large book to set. Leave until the Modge Podge has dried. Preferably overnight.
Step 4: trim the edges (sand if needed) and brush the while tile with another coat of Modge Podge. Allow to dry and voila!
1. Keep your thermostat temp as close to the outside temp as possible. The less your heat and air unit has to work the lower your bills!
2.Use a power strip for common items you use daily such as a cell phone charger, laptop, etc. When you shut down the power strip you save 100% of that power.
3. Keep your blinds open in the winter to allow outdoor sunshine to help heat your home!
4.Turn off your lights when you're not using them! You will save 12% in doing this alone.
5. Don't open the oven when you're cooking unless absolutely necessary! Your oven loses 25 degrees of the temp each time it's opened!
Frigid Kentucky weather is well on it's way! Remember to keep the heat on at all times when away to prevent any pipes freezing and any additional mishaps. If extremely cold outside drip faucets or open cabinet doors.
