Loyal readers will recall recipes and instructions in this column for how to make your own laundry detergent. It’s a topic not warmly embraced by many.

Like a death to have accepted someone and love them like a daughter then discover they were not at all the person you love and their actions led you to hate them. Working on not hating you but just putting you in the land of nothingness where you belong.

It's so true, sooner or later people do reveal their true colors...
So true.. you're not worth it!
#thatslife #shattered #brokenhearted
You're not worth it. True story of a year ago with best friend.
Knowing the truth hurts but I picked myself up and started a new life. A life free and amazing!!-- YOU'RE NOT WORTH IT... CSP!!!!!
What lies you told, my true hope is some day you understand the pain and heartache you caused.We trusted you, loved you, believed in you. You and your lies and cheating have hurt so many. To see you smile days after being caught with the guy speaks volumes of who you are in your core. To know you were a fraud hurts. You hurt the heart I trusted you with. I hope you one day feel what our family feels. You are the worst kind of thief, you stole trust, love, hope, faith, & dreams. #lyla

A good man or woman will be honest no matter how painful the truth is. A coward hides behind lies and deceit.
Hope karma finds little miss lyla, the hurricane of lies and destruction....may she some day feel what she has caused others.

My normal approach to wrapping a corner is seen on the left. But with thick, rigid carpet I take the approach on the right. It’s okay to seam the corner since the carpet pile will hide the seam if you do it right. In the first frame I drew some guides to show how I plan to cut. I follow the topside edge of the board out ¾” of an inch, which will allow for a seam on the corner of the sides of the board. The cut coming across the diagram makes for nice 45-degree flaps to staple on the back.

Upcycle your old wire hangers into colorful non-slip hangers with bright yarn or embroidery floss. Great life hack. I use the flocked hangers now and using yarn or pipe cleaners would be cheaper. You don't have to go all the way around the hanger either.

Hem jeans, keeping the original hem. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS??? As a short girl, this is aaaaaaallways a struggle.
do it yourself divas: DIY: Hem Jeans Fast & Easy We short people find it hard to buy jeans that fit us length wise. I bought some jeans from Buckle and they hemmed them for free for me leaving the original hem on the jeans. I picked them up, took them home, looked closer at the hem and I thought to myself, "I could have done that." A couple years went by and I did nothing about all my long jeans, until today. Cathe, from Just Something I Made, put up a tutorial on her blog and I was so happy ...
Hemming pants with the original hem. For all of us short people, this is awesome.

Home made liquid soap (body wash/baby shampoo).......I make this for my youngest who is alergic to many things. I use glycerin soap and at the end before I bottle the soap, I add a little Lavender essential oil (great for sleeping and exzema) along with 1-2 drops tea tree oil (to keep it from spoiling)--(you can also use Lemon, Grapefruit, or other citrus oils to keep it from spoiling). LOVE IT!!!
