Homemade Lotion Bars! Recipe for Lip Balm Too. Use coconut and olive oil.
Homemade Lotion Bars and Lip Balm: made with only coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax & essential oil. (Blogger's original recipe was crisco and veggie oil BUT in the comments, she says she made it with CO and OO and it turned out beautifully. So, use same recipe but sub in CO & OO.) None of the yucky chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde, petroleum, etc. that you'll find in store-bought lotions and absorbs into the skin wonderfully. Bonus: no plastic bottle packaging.

You’ve seen Earth, but you’ve never seen it like this. Suomi NPP, NASA’s newest Earth-watching satellite, has taken a high resolution image of Earth, one of the most beautiful such images ever created. It’s available in 8000×8000 pixel resolution, and it takes a while to download, but it’s definitely worth it. The satellite, named after the “father of satellite meteorology,” Verner E. Suomi, is designed to create fabulous images of Earth, monitor for natural disasters and improve weather forecasts as well as our understanding of long-term climate changes. The image is a composite, created using a number of swaths of the Earth’s surface taken on Jan. 4, 2012. It echoes the legendary “Blue Marble” photograph, taken by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft on Dec, 7, 1972, The Blue Marble 2012, as NASA named the new photo, is available in high resolution here. Now, where do we sign up for a 8000×8000 pixel screen so we can use this baby as a desktop background?

Heifer project supports fair trade. It is an organization that promotes education about developing countries. Heifer purchases animals for families. These animals are able to give people entirely knew lives, success, and most importantly hope.

For many years my mother gave me a goat for Christmas. Although I did not actually see the goat I always knew that someone;s family in a country far away received the nourishment from the milk the goat provided. Thank you Mom
"Give a man a fish he eats for a day, give him a fishing pole and he can feed himself" is what Heifer International is about. Providing livestock to families and communities in America and around the world, a donation to Heifer makes a great teacher's Christmas gift.
Gift idea - a basket of goat-inspired things...goat cheese, goat-milk-caramels, goats do roam wine, etc... and a certificate showing a donation of a goat to a family through heifer.org
By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, Heifer International empowers people to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope. With gifts of livestock and training, Heifer projects help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. The animals are "living loans". In exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need. It's called "Passing on the Gift".

How to clean the glass on your oven door in minutes! I'll have to remember this. Ingredients: Water Baking Soda Add about a 1/4 cup of baking soda in a dish and mix just enough water to make a slightly runny paste. Spread your mixture all over your glass (and the door if it needs it too.) Wait 15-20 minutes (or 30). After 15, 20, or 30 minutes wipe off. If there are still spots left they should easily scrub off with a scour pad.
DIY- Oven Glass Cleaner Ingredients: Water Baking Soda Add about a 1/4 cup of baking soda in a dish and mix just enough water to make a slightly runny paste. Spread your mixture all over your glass (and the door if it needs it too. Mine did). Wait 15-20 minutes (or if it is really, really bad like mine you can wait 30 minutes. Not sure if this is necessary but that's what I did.). After 15, 20, or 30 minutes wipe off. If there are still spots left they should easily scrub off with a scouring pad.
