Bone Broth Soup Recipe – In a Slow Cooker

Key Fobs Craft DIY Homemade Wristlet

For Christmas, our family makes homemade gifts for each other.  We’ve had this tradition for a long time, so I’m constantly on the hunt for a DIY, homemade gift that does not totally suck.  Like most teenagers, mine have some high standards.  I originally made these cute little key fobs during Christmas a few weeks ago for the women in our family (my kids as well as sister-in-laws, nieces, and friends), but I just haven’t gotten around to writing about it.  Key fobs are so easy to make!  This entire batch of key fobs took me less than 15 minutes.

Repurposing Clothing into Decorations: Homemade Sweater Pillow

Repurposing sweaters into pillows.

Here is another upcycled/repurposing idea for everyone: sweater pillows.  Since I really needed some couch pillows, this makes for a fabulously frugal and really cool recycled clothing idea.  I gave the argyle one to my sister-in-law.

My friend gave me an entire pile of clothing, yes, this is in addition to my already full closet full of my mother’s clothes!  I can’t say no to a good clothing deal though, and free is the best deal of all.  Out of that pile came a really cool men’s argyle sweater which was way too big for my husband but also way too cute to let go.  Then, I came across this blog post about turning a sweater into a pillow and I had to try it out.

First, I cut up a regular bed pillow.  We had a ton of extra down pillows in the house because my husband didn’t really like sleeping on them.  I cut it in half, with lots of extra feathers left over to make a small pillow with some extra cloth from other clothing projects.

Coconut oil is one of nature’s best superfoods, having absolutely awesome uses for the body.  I use a refined, organic version (Nature’s Promise) that I can find in the grocery store.  Since I hate the smell of coconut, I buy the refined coconut oil – you can also buy the unrefined coconut oil too.  I also prefer the organic stuff that is cold-pressed.  One jar usually lasts me months, but I also do not cook with it.  (I usually cook with sesame seed and olive oils.)
