When I think of fish oil I think of the nasty liquid that my mom used to give us as kids and the taste stuck around all day. I remember the happy day when we started buying the softgels and it was awesome… until the inevitable burping brought that happy cloud down faster than you can say omega-3. Years later I’m trying again to find a fish oil that I actually want to take, and that’s when I was told about Activz krill oil.
Earlier this year I went into my doctor to have some routine tests done, and apparently my liver is ‘angry’. How on earth did someone who doesn’t drink, smoke, or use prescription medication end up with an angry liver? Along with some good advice to improve my eating and exercise habits my doctor told me to eat more fish. Yeah, not going to happen. Ever. It’s not that I’m trying to be defiant, but I hate fish. Hate. Can’t do it. I have tried again and again. I don’t even like tuna or shrimp. It’s that bad. Read More
I have come to the realization that not all acne is created equal. There are different kinds and different causes. Lucky us. Some are harder to get rid of. I didn’t know that until recently. I’ve tried many products over the years, and many of them have worked, but not everything works for every kind of acne. We can still be bitter about adult acne, right? Right?? I’ve used the Dermagist Clarifying system in the past with positive results, and I’m trying it again.
I’ve struggled with acne since I was in my early teens. Oh, the joys of middle school. So much awkwardness. I was pretty lucky because I didn’t have massive outbreaks then. THEN. I saved that for my 20’s. Do you remember watching Channel 1 in history class and seeing the commercials for skin care? “Do you want to use the same soap on your face that you use on your armpits?” They had a point, but that always made me laugh.

Looking for a last minute idea for a great Fourth of July craft for the kids? I’ve got just the thing. Needing something festive for my children to make while keeping the mess at a minimum I decided to help them make their own patriotic flags.
I went to Oriental Trading to find a fun craft. I wanted something a little different from the Father’s Day craft we did last year. Of course we still have to involve stickers, but on a lesser scale.
I felt that fabric markers, stickers, and glitter glue were daring enough while not committing my home to a forever mess. Note to self: glitter stickers should only be used in a designated craft area or outside. Glitter stickers are shockingly abundant in glitter. Also, a 6 year old is more trustworthy with glitter stickers than are 16 year old girls.
Speaking of 16 year old girls, my Sunday School class also had fun with the flags. While camera-shy, they enjoyed putting their own red, white, and blue spin on their flags. And the glitter of course. One of my favorite things is to watch someone’s personality come out in their crafting.
This craft seemed to be a little much for my almost 4 year old, but it was perfect for my 6 year old. The flags are completely blank, and kids that like to color as opposed to draw might not like that as much. However, it does leave open the possibility for many different kinds of projects. The box of markers comes with 80 markers in 8 different colors. The glitter glue comes in 8 bottles of varying patriotic colors. The stickers were a hit, but left quite a bit of glitter behind.
My 6 year old is immensely proud of his first ever American flag craft. He absolutely loves stickers, and it took quite a bit of negotiating to convince him that he shouldn’t cover all of his work with them. The flags are made from nylon and will last as long as he takes care of it. As my kids get older I realize I like crafts that endure.
And I just know you wanted to see more glitter stickers. We will have many fabulous crafting adventures to come I am sure. What else could they be with such stickers as these?
