It's 3:55am, I am wide awake, and I have a tickle in my throat that will not go away.
So, here I am... blogging.
First things first... I am sponsoring a giveaway on Bird Crafts. Check it out, and enter to win a free calendar!
Okay, so now stay with me people... this next bit of randomness is getting me to my point, I promise.
I used to be involved in MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and amazing program where mommies meet to get inspiration, help, and those "me too!" moments that you so desperately need when you have driven 15 miles on the freeway before realizing that you forgot to strap your infant into the carrier (yes... I did that).
Anyway, one of my favorite parts of MOPS was what they called Ten Second Tips. Moms would get up and give quick little tidbits of helpful information ranging from "banana peels can remove tarnish off of silver" to "keep a diaper in your car so that if you're on a roadtrip and your potty-trained child (or husband) feels mother nature calling at an inopportune time, they can sit on the diaper".
Yesterday I found a great blog, This Crazy Life by Michelle Underwood. She is a Digital Scrapbook Graphic Designer that is amazingly talented. In fact, one of her kits was used on this blog design! She has a section on her blog where she offers some freebies, and that is where I found this:
So here is my Ten Second Tip, stolen from Michelle!
Boil a can of sweet condensed milk for 3 hours, and it will turn into caramel. Then you can use one of her adorable free printable labels, add some apples or popcorn or brownie mix (or all three), and make a great gift basket!
Please check out Michelle's blog for the complete instructions.
I LOVE this idea! I am going to make some and give it to Beau's teacher with a bag of apples.
Now I wanna hear your Ten Second Tips! Trust me ladies... you may get some of your best life advice here.
