Non-Guilty Wrapping Paper! December 24, 2010

Ok, so I am a freak about recycling and the amount of waste during the Holidays.  From the amount of packaging on children’s toys to peanuts found in a shipping box……to throw on MORE waste with wrapping paper nearly throws me into a panic……..

I found some newspaper in the recycling bin and went to work…..

I was really excited how they were looking, but they needed something…….I found an old red tablecloth…..BOWS!  (Clementine colored little pictures for the tags:)

I am super psyched on how they turned out!  And NO unnecessary EXTRA garbage!  YEA!


Try and conserve everyday!
Happy Holidays!!

XOXOX

Beat the Heat (or at least pretend to) July 7, 2010

Ok, so here in Buffalo, it is so hot I cannot even stand it!  I decided to find a few fun things that help me forget about how hot I am 🙂

For the kiddos!!  Bring along on a picnic to keep your kids  imagination going!

A favorite lunch combination of play foods, it looks good enough to eat! A delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with the unique Royal Rugrats bread. Each slice feels just like the real thing and has hand stitching for the entire crust! A side of tortilla chips with a fun scalloped edge and the brand new peanut butter and cracker snack to complete this lunch set. Crackers are made of a double layer of eco fi felt and hand stitched edges stuffed with peanut butter spread. So many ways for your Royal Chef to enjoy pretend cooking or getting ready for their own imagination picnic!

Wheeee! It’s Banana Surfing!

Banana Surfing

AGGGHHHHHHH!!!  LOVE this so much!!  Mikiep’s prints are just so adorable and sweet, I could browse through them all day!!

Do you remember the good old days when you were young 🙂 After finishing a “MMMM good” Can of Soup, You would go out in the backyard with you BFF and make yourself a String telephone. It would always amaze me that is would actually work Aww to go back in time when a couple can and a string would entertain me for hours 🙂

Lets Play Telephone

Get in those bathing suits!!!  If you are lucky enough to need one, I would recommend visiting Jinamin78@etsy.com.  FABULOUS!!!!  I want every single one!  And the photos are just to die for!!

She is really comfortable, and she’s perfect for you if you like to be active in your swimsuits. You would feel pretty secure wearing her eventhough she is a tube suit, but she also comes with hot pink strings that are detachable so you can wear her either way you like.

Filed under: Uncategorized — ArcherAve @ 9:42 am

We all have some really great guys in our lives, whether they are dad’s or not, they all deserve a little something special now and then!!  Here are a few of my favorite GUY GIFTS!!

Choose a word that shows how you feel, where you met or an inside joke!  Kelsy Henke photographs letters, mounts and seals them onto wood!  Love them!!  So bright and fun, sure to bring color to any house or office!!

Family Rules!??  Barn Owl Primitives on Etsy hand paints them on a pine board so you can display them for everyone to see!  What an adorable idea to keep everyone up on how to treat each other, because we all know it is easy to forget;)

Every guy needs a new wallet!!  They are always falling apart or putting holes in the pockets of their jeans, falling out and getting lost.

These great repurposed leather wallets from Archer Ave on Etsy are great and span all kinds of tastes from the rugged, country man to the suit wearer on Wall Street.

They also come in a really great carrying case that can be used for a bunch of things from receipts, paper clips, photos…..

PhotoAtelier on Etsy makes these really awesome personalized photo blocks.  Ugghhh!!  I just love them and want my house to be covered in them!!!

Ok, I was about finished…..and then I came across this……….

CANDIED CHIPOTLE BACONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN  Do I need to say more??

I hope everyone has an awesome Father’s day!!!!!!!!!!

NIVEA Goodbye Cellulite CREAM!!!!!  I know that (pretty much) every girl HATES cellulite and (pretty much) every girl has some that they want to get rid of!

I AM NOT getting paid for this, hehhee, so this is not some kind of endorsement deal;)  I just wanted to share something that I think is a FABULOUS product!!!!

Ok, I should be posting some before and after pics of my own cellulite, but I am not that brave……..

I swear it works!!!!!  I have used it everyday for about a week and I swear most of my cellulite has totally disappeared!!!

Sorry if this is a dumb post, but I know that some people might be happy about it;)

 

Coral Gardening?? May 14, 2010

This is AMAZING!  Coral gardening????  I was recently watching a television show on the Pacific and I was just amazed by this.

All over the world, there are serious concerns about the state of our coral reefs.
Some scientists estimate we’ve already lost 5 percent of all reefs on the planet.

But would life really be so different if there were no coral reefs left in the world? Aside from the aesthetic loss of one of the most beautiful habitats on earth, corals are a vital source of food and provide a livelihood for a surprising number of the world’s inhabitants – somewhere between 200 million and 500 million people.

~http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/ocean-quest-the-race-to-save-the-worlds-coral-reefs-869589.html

Extraordinary new ocean ‘reseeding’ techniques mean that there still may be time to halt-or even reverse-the destruction os these marine marvels.

Mother corals are first established in the coral farms, by trimming sections off of wild corals.

After growing the mother corals for about two years, the corals reach the size of a large dinner plate.

These second-generation corals are either replanted into restoration sites, onto coral castles, or harvested, bleached and coloured with acrylic paints to re-establish a more realistic coral colour, and marketed to support the community development and conservation work.

Here is a really fabulous video: http://glassbox-design.com/2009/fiji-coral-gardening/ : that shows what dedicated coral gardeners are doing to restore the declining reefs in Fiji.
