Tuesday's Tips

Spring cleaning has left me with alot of baby clothing that the girls can no longer use. I don't know of any one that is having a baby girl to pass them on to. So I have come up with a couple of ideas that allow me to teach the girls about recycling and re-using things instead of throwing them out.
The first one is to use the clothing for dolls. 
Lucky for me I have 3 girls and LOTS of dolls they can dress up.
Try sewing some blanket's together to make a big blanket you don't have to worry if it gets ruined. 
These are my favourite! The twins wore them on their first birthday and it killed me to give them up. 
First I turned the shirt inside out and sewed along the bottom.
Then I sewed up the sleeves, stuffed them and sewed up the collar.
 As soon as Cesina saw them, she wanted all her t-shirts were to become pillows.
Seeing as there is no room for so many pillows, I decided a manicure would make her just as happy.
She came up with the rainbow nails and different stickers idea. The stickers can be found at dollar stores but make sure you use a clear coat because they tend to come off really easily if you don't top coat them.
The Halloween costumes also came out as the Spring closet cleaning continued and I was surprised that a size 7-8 fit the twins so well and they are a size 2T.

How perfect...a LPS bunny costume.I think I will have Cesina wear this as she hunts down the Easter baskets.
These are the tips I found online to deter snakes from your yard; 
  • Remove vegetation from your home
  • Kill any rodents you find outside of your home 
  • Place a mothball and water mixture in coffee cans and poke holes in the top of the cans. Then set the cans out to deter the snakes.
  • Seal any cracks around your home. Rattlesnakes tend to search for cooler, damper areas 
  • during the summer so it is advisable to cover existing crevices around garage doors or 
  • beneath basements to prevent them from entering these areas. 
  • Water or swimming pool pumps should be properly covered as well. 
  • Moist places in your yard, such as water fountains in your garden or any existing ponds, are ideal places for rattlesnakes
  • Eliminate rattlesnake homes and nesting-sites.  Which includes such things as wood piles, rock piles, garbage piles, long grass, brush, undergrowth, piles of building materials, animal burrows, etc. 
  • Think about the places that would be cozy for a snake to move into and remove them. 
  • But be careful when you remove them! There may already be a rattlesnake in residence.
I thought I might add praying to the list because I can not control the rodents, or do anything about the tall grasses around the property. The moth balls might not be a good idea until the twins are older. Yep...praying...my best option!
