How Babies are Made


I always wondered....
Canadian photographer Patrice Laroche surely will have no trouble explaining his kids about the birds and the bees. During his wife Sandra Denis’ pregnancy, the artist created hilarious explanatory photo series titled “How to Make a Baby”.

The creative couple planned and carried out their project throughout the
whole period of 9 months, taking pictures in the exact same settings as
Sandra’s belly expanded.
The pregnancy saga of Sandra and Patrice basically denounces all the
traditional cabbage and the stork stories.

My recipe HE Maytag Washer
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup 20 mule team borax
Throw direct into washer with clothes
I have allergies and wash everything twice.
Once with soap and once without.
If you have a stinky wash load toss 1 cup of baking soida into the wash to remove oders.

Pour the soap water into a large, clean pail and add the Borax and Washing Soda. Stir well until all is dissolved.
Add 2 gallons of water, stir until well mixed.
Cover pail and use 1/4 cup for each load of laundry. Stir the soap each time you use it (will gel).

Recipe #2
Hot water
1 cup Washing Soda
1/2 cup Borax
1 Soap bar
Grate the bar soap and add to a large saucepan with hot water. Stir over medium-low heat until soap dissolves and is melted.
Fill a 10 gallon pail half full of hot water. Add the melted soap, Borax and Washing soda, stir well until all powder is dissolved. Top the pail up with more hot water.
Use 1 cup per load, stirring soap before each use (will gel).

Use 1/2 cup per load, stirring soap before each use (will gel).

Powdered Laundry Detergent – Recipe #4
2 cups Fels Naptha Soap (finely grated – you could also try the other bar soaps listed at the top)
1 cup Washing Soda
1 cup Borax
Mix well and store in an airtight plastic container.
Use 2 tablespoons per full load.

Recipe #5
Hot water
1 bar (4.5 oz) Ivory Soap – grated
1 cup Washing Soda
In a large saucepan add grated soap and enough hot water to cover. Heat over medium-low heat and stir until soap is melted.
Fill a large pail with 2.5 gallons of hot water, add hot soap mixture. Stir until well mixed.
Then add the washing soda, again stirring until well mixed.
Set aside to cool.
Use 1/2 cup per full load, stirring well before each use (will gel)

Recipe #6
2.5 gallons Water (hot)
1 Bar soap (grated)
3/4 cup Washing Soda
3/4 cup Borax
2 TBS Glycerin
Melt bar soap over medium-low heat topped with water, stir until soap is melted.
In a large pail, pour 2.5 gallons of hot water, add melted soap mixture, washing soda, borax and glycerin. Mix well.
Use 1/2 cup per full load.

Recipe #7
2 cups Bar soap (grated)
2 cups Washing Soda
2 – 2.5 gallons hot water
Melt grated soap in saucepan with water to cover. Heat over medium-low heat and stir until soap is dissolved.
Pour hot water in large pail, add hot soap and washing soda. Stir very well.
Use 1 cup per full load.

Recipe #8
2 gallons Water (hot)

Melt grated soap in a saucepan with enough hot water to cover.
Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently until soap is melted.
In a large pail, pour 2 gallons hot water. Add melted soap, stir well.
Then add the baking soda, stir well again.

Powdered Laundry Detergent – Recipe #9
12 cups Borax
8 cups Baking Soda
8 cups Washing Soda
8 cups Bar soap (grated)
Mix all ingredients well and store in a sealed tub.
Use 1/8 cup of powder per full load.

Recipe #10 – (Powdered)
1 cup Vinegar (white)
1 cup Baking Soda
1 cup Washing Soda
1/4 cup liquid castile soap
Mix well and store in sealed container.
I find it easiest to pour the liquid soap into the bowl first,
stirred in the washing soda, then baking soda, then added the vinegar in small batches
at a time (the recipe foams up at first). The mixture is a thick paste at first that will break
down into a heavy powdered detergent, just keep stirring. There may be some hard lumps,
try to break them down when stirring (it really helps to make sure the baking soda isn’t clumpy when first adding).
I used 1/2 cup per full load with great results.
Liquid Detergents Note
Soap will be lumpy, goopy and gel-like. This is normal. Just give it a good stir before using
. Make sure soap is covered with a lid when not in use. You could also pour the homemade soap
in old (and cleaned) laundry detergent bottles and shake well before each use.

Christmas Card recycle


Christmas Card Recycle Garland

A few weeks ago I mentioned in a post that I was going to do some projects with the Christmas Cards I’ve saved through the years. I first started with making a garland and its coming along nicely.
I used a simple circle punch and went through the cards, strategically punching circles from the cards to get phrases, art elements, graphics and even the signatures and handwriting from my friends and loved ones to make it extra special. From the many photos I had I punched out faces so I could keep those little treasures in time. I used a 1.5″ punch here but you could probably even use different sizes and string a pattern of sizes on the jute. I folded each circle in half and then glued them together back to back. I used 5 circles in each ornament, and strung it to the jute by closing up the final two sides around the jute – just tucking the string down to the center of where the circles meet and then sealing closed.

I’ve got plenty of cards so I will have more than enough stock to choose from and will have a garland of memories to string on the tree this year.

Planting ?Paper


You’ve might have seen seed paper recently.  It is homemade paper with flower seeds in it.  When it is planted in the ground and given lots of TLC it will bloom into beautiful flowers you can enjoy.  Here is a tutorial for a project using seed paper.
First, you need to make the paper.
Use paper you have around your house.  This is a great way to recycle old scraps.  Tear them up into small pieces and place in a blender.  Add enough water in the blender so the paper is covered and blend.

When your paper is nice and evenly blended  you can add your seeds.  Unplug your blender and use a wooden spoon to gently stir the seeds into the paper mush. Do not blend them!

Now it is ready to be shaped.  Place a colander in the sink and pour the paper mush into it. If you have large holes in your colander like I do, go ahead and place a towel in it to catch the pulp, but not the water.
Place a towel on the counter and if you have a piece of felt, place the felt on top of the towel.  Then gently pour your seeds and paper pulp on the felt and spread evenly out.
Take another towel and press it down on the paper pulp to help dry the excess water.  You can now blow dry the paper or let it sit out overnight to dry.
When your paper is dry, cut it out into a flower shape. Make a simple card with cardstock and glue the flower to your card.  Feel free to get creative here and draw, stamp, or cut out a stem.  If you don’t like flowers, make a cute butterfly or tree.  The options are endless and no matter what shape you choose–it will be a hit with the recipient of the card.
Make sure you add a message somewhere on your card to let the recipient know they can plant it!
