Make Your Own Decorated Apron And Save

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and have a creative flair, why not make an apron that’s fun to wear while you’re cooking your favorite recipes? It’s easy to do using fabric paint and rubber stamps. Here’s how to decorate an apron quickly and easily:


 


1 - Gather your supplies

You’ll need a plain white or cream colored apron to serve as the canvas for your art. Once you have your blank apron, it’s time to visit your local craft store to select images to stamp on your apron. Head to the rubber stamp section and you’ll be amazed by the number of stamps available to you. You can stamp any images you’d like on your apron to give it that customized touch. One fun idea is to use images of food. If you look carefully through the rubber stamp offerings, you’ll probably find rubber stamps depicting fruit, fish, veggies, and any number of other fun motifs appropriate for an apron. Make sure the rubber stamps you choose are large enough to be seen. Go for big and bold. Once you have your stamps, pick up some fabric paint in basic black as well as colors appropriate for painting your images once they’re stamped.


Supplies needed:


a) Rubber stamps of your choice (big, bold ones work best)


b) A white or cream colored apron


c) Fabric paints to fill in your stamped images


d) A foam brush


e) Foam board

2 - Stamp your apron

Lay the apron down on a flat surface suitable for stamping. Make sure the surface is well protected from the effects of the paint. A foam board works well as a surface for stamping. Use a slightly damp foam brush to apply black paint directly to your rubber stamps. Carefully stamp your images on the apron by pressing firmly into the fabric and quickly removing to avoid smearing or splattering. Reapply the black fabric paint before stamping each new image. Once the images are stamped, allow them to dry for two hours before proceeding. 




3 - Paint your stamped images

Once the rubber stamped images are dry, use a damp foam brush to apply the colors of your choice to the interior of the images. This will make your stamped apron come to life with color. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly before wearing. Admire your new one-of-a-kind apron!


 


A hand stamped apron makes a wonderful gift for an enthusiastic home cook. You can even personalize the apron by painting their name on the apron. You can create dozens of unique aprons just by varying the rubber stamps you choose. Give this project a try. It’ll bring out the hidden artist in you.

Pure Garcinia Cambogia + Detox Slender Cleanse Review #AdvancedDietKit




I have been taking the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Slender Cleanse for almost 2 weeks now. The Slender Cleanse cannot be taken more than 7 consecutive days so my review will be more of the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract capsules.



I have noticed a drop in my appetite but not much change in my weight yet. I only lost half a kilo. I am pretty amazed with the way my appetite has been suppressed. I am a junk food eater and I gorge a lot with those kinds of food.  However, when I started taking the Garcinia Cambogia plus the Slender Cleanse, I also changed my meal plan to more healthier options like salads and fresh fruits and lots of water intake.

So far, my energy level is a bit okay. I used to just lounge and watch TV but ever since I have taken this combo supplements, I feel I still have enough power to do things around the house even after coming home from work. I am also urinating a lot because of the plenty of water intake as the instructions say.

As for the Slender Cleanse capsule, it has helped me with my bowel movement too. It didn't give me stomach cramps maybe because I wasn't really eating much but I am glad that it has started to clean my digestive tract. I also noticed that I am starting to break out. I think it may have something to do with the detox effect of the Super Cleanse. I have pimples right now and I started developing them towards the 3rd/4th day of taking the Super Cleanse.

Both the supplements are in clear capsule form so you can see the contents very easily. They don't have any funny after taste at all and quite easy to swallow. There is an instruction on how to take them on the side of the bottle but they are super small.



The Pure Garcinia Cambogia contains 60% HCA and has no fillers/binders/artificial ingredients. It is also gluten-free. The weight loss kit is Made in the USA in a FDA Certified and GMP Approved State of the Art Facility.

I recommend this kit for the reason that it helped control my appetite because I love to eat. The weight loss may come soon when I also incorporate light exercise routine. For now, I will continue to take these supplements and see further effects.

You can purchase this Advanced Diet Kit from Amazon.

Natural Pimple Buster

Photo not mine


It's not easy to grow up having pimples because it is when you're very conscious of your appearance and the last thing you want to see is a pimple resting happily on your face. However, if you're young and in the adolescent period, don't just wish yourself to adulthood because even adults can develop pimples. As a matter of fact, even those in their 40s can have one or two.

There are plenty of pimple ointment and cream that you can buy over the counter. Nothing beats the homemade and natural ones that you can use at home. Here are some natural pimple busters that you can use to ward those blemishes.



  • Lemon juice has anti bacterial properties that will help treat pimples. You can dip a cotton ball to the lemon juice and apply on the affected area. Leave for 20 minutes and wash with cool water.



  • Strawberries - This yummy fruit is a natural source of salicylic acid. Make a strawberry mask by mashing some strawberries and mixing 1 tablespoon of honey, few lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a clean bowl. Apply on your clean face and leave for 15 minutes then wash it off with water.



  • Cucumber - This cool vegetable can ease swelling and redness, just apply the cucumber pulp on the affected area. 



  • Aloe Vera - This plant can help heal pimples and its soothing properties help in ease pain and inflammation. Apply the pulp of the aloe vera leaf on the affected area.



  • Ground cinnamon - Cinnamon has an antiseptic properties so you can make a mask by mixing 2 tablespoons of organic honey to ground cinnamon.  Make sure it is enough to make a light mask. Apply on the affected area for 20 mins, and rinse with lukewarm water.



  • Tea Tree Oil - This has antimicrobial properties which can eliminate bacterias causing acne/pimple flareups. Apply a drop of tea tree oil on the affected area.



There are more natural remedies for pimples that you can easily make home. Try some of this and save not just your skin from chemicals but also save money by making these home remedies.
