Need something expensive done? Get good work at low cost.

Need a dress made, room or office designed, landscaping or an event photographed? Go to a nearby college and post what you need. Schools are filled with brilliant students needing to build a portfolio - many willing to work for free or, at least very cheaply. They get to build a body of work to help them when they graduate and YOU get work done at a low cost. I've had all of the above done by students and the work quality was amazing! I even rehired two after graduation for more work.

I got a Hangup...

As I was unpacking I came across a cloth shoe organizer that I had not used in 18 months because I lost the hooks. Well I decided to use it substituting tea cup hoops & stored odds and ends sewing items for my art supplies. They are just big enough for photos, thread, beads, ribbons you name it! I hung it on the back side of my closet door. I think it could be used for belts, scarves or whatever catches your fancy. The best $2 I spent and it did not go to waste. How 'bout that for repurpos

Art of Presenting a Meal

Think about how much we enjoy our foods when we eat out. The cooks spend a few extra minutes just making the plate look like art! So, TREAT yourself to your own meal "out" by presenting your foods carefully. Add a sprig of parsley or basil leaf on tomatoes or a bit of fruit on top of your pancakes.

Opening Receptions = FREE Food, Fun, and Learning - Just Get Out There & FInd It

We love going to opening receptions for art exhibitions. There is always food--usually healthy stuff like veggies, fruit, and cheeses and sometimes wine (stay away from the soda and junk). Dinner, entertainment, social interaction, and learning and seeing new stuff. It is a win on all levels!

Current studies on weight and breast cancer show a normal BMI equals 60% less chance of recurrence. I have a beautiful little picture on my fridge that says: 60%.
