On a totally unrelated, but helpful note, one of my favorite sites, The Frugal Girl posted something neat the other day. Her post was entitled A Simple Air Freshener, and it's something I never thought about before. I love scented candles, but apparently, the fumes they put off are really bad for you, and the good ones can be expensive. She suggests boiling a few things, like spices, (in this case, it was an orange peel, cinnamon sticks and whole cloves). What a great way to get your house smelling yummy without harmful fumes entering your lungs, or having to spend a ton on candles!
Or you could just bake some bread or some cookies. Both make your house smell equally delicious! :)
And here is my weekly photo challenge picture:
A few New Year's resolutions that I thought of for myself:
- Spend less money on crap
- Get involved in the MCP Project 12 (an online monthly photo challenge contest, to grow my photography skills
- Finally learn how to use my sewing machine
- Connect with and get to know my neighbors more
Happy second day of 2012!
