Valentines Art with Sharpies and Tin Foil

by happyhooligans @ Happy Hooligans

Hey Lovely,

I know the feeling. Your kids want to craft but you don't want to get all the craft stuff out, and be left with a big mess.

It's probably one of the reasons for saying "no" when they ask to craft, right?

I get it. We moms are busy, and there are enough messes to clean up in a day, never mind the chaos that can come along with craft time.

Well, how would you feel if I told you your kids could have a ton of fun crafting today with about a minute of prep and virtually no clean up.

Got tin foil? Got Sharpies? Great. You're all set for your kids to make some cool Valentines art.

It's slick and shimmery, and the process is really fun.

It's also kind of addictive, so it may just keep the troops entertained for a while.

A win for the kids and a win for you!

Click on the link below, and you'll be on your way to a mess-free, super-cool craft session today!

Dove, you see, is owned by Unilever—the multinational consumer goods behemoth last seen being an oversensitive penis over the definition of mayonnaise—which happens to be one of BuzzFeed's major advertising partners.

Well, sadly, my crafty brain doesn't switch gears quite as quickly as I'd like it to, and I still have Fall on my mind.

Check out this shimmering, vibrant Fall leaf mobile! It was super-easy to make, using things we already had in and around the house.

Viral: BEWARE! Fake shampoo, lotion and other products sold at a very cheap price to scam buyers


Viral 4 Real

Numerous posts have been circling Facebook and other news media sites about peddlers selling fake shampoos, lotions and other products like fabric conditioners. Buyers are lured in by the overly cheap prices. Since the peddlers are selling in open places like SM, most people are not wary of the scam they are about to encounter. Sunsilk, Palmolive, Olay, and other expensive shampoos are sold at a mere P100 each. But we must warn the masses to be a little more cautious and make sure to double check the items you purchase.

Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls – Easy, To-Die-For Recipe

by happyhooligans @ Happy Hooligans

So, I have this amazing cinnamon roll recipe.

You make the dough in your bread machine which makes the process so easy.

The part you do by hand is actually really fun and cool, AND...

They are the BEST cinnamon buns ever.

Here's the funny part though - when I made these the last time, I didn't use a big enough baking dish, and my cinnamon rolls rose UP as well as OUT.

They tasted delicious, as usual, but the results were quite comical.

I shared a photo on my facebook page, and people went nuts for it, saying they looked like Dr. Seuss cinnamon rolls, and suggesting that I make them this way for Christmas, dusting them with icing sugar, so they look like Christmas trees, OR colouring the frosting orange to make them look like candy-corn for Halloween.

Anyway, I thought you'd like to know that I wrote a post about them, and included the wacky pictures.

Check them out, and MAKE THEM! They are SO crazy-good. You'll never buy store-bought cinnamon rolls again.

Just use the right size of baking dish if you don't want the Suessical version. HA!

Car Mechanics Don’t Want You To See This… It Will Save You A Lot Of Money

by Mimi @ All Healthy News

Scratches, chips and other imperfections are just about unavoidable, but a careful repair job can be almost totally invisible. Unless the car you’re repairing is over 20 years old or was custom-painted,­ the paint is almost certainly a clear-coated catalyzed enamel. Artificially hardened by toxic chemicals, it’s stable within hours of factory application. I don’t […]

How to Make the Best Homemade Laundry Detergent at Home

by happyhooligans @ Happy Hooligans

Slash your laundry costs to 10 dollars per year.

You know what's crazy? The number of toxic chemicals in a jug of commercial brand laundry detergent. You know what's crazier? Our babies have their little mouths and noses pressed up to clothing and bedding scented with those chemicals from the day they're born. Night and day. How can that possibly be ok? How can that be safe?

Check out my 3 ingredient Homemade Laundry Detergent recipe. It's free of toxins, you can make it in minutes, and it costs a fraction of what store-bought detergents cost. I've been using this recipe for 5 years, and I'll never go back to store-bought. I hope you'll give it a try. For your family, for the planet and for your pocket-book.

Paper Plate Ice Cream Craft – “I” is for Ice Cream!

by happyhooligans @ Happy Hooligans

I am SO excited to share this AH-MAZ-ING paper plate craft with you. Excited for a couple of reasons: firstly, we've been trying to think of a "Letter I" paper plate craft here for over a year, and we just couldn't come up with anything good. Finally, the 6 and 7 year old thought of THIS ONE. The second reason I'm so excited about it is because it looks SO freaking awesome, and was so totally fun to make! We all took part in the process, and we were practically giddy as it all came together. It resembled ice cream so closely that we wanted to eat it! The colours and flavours, the chocolate chips, the syrup and the sprinkles... ALL made out of basic craft supplies! If you're looking for a Letter "I" craft to do with your kids, THIS is the one!
