Helpful Hint for those left over Ketchups from fast food places, Shared by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Helpful Hint I read about today.

We do not visit fast food restaurants much anymore, but I really liked the idea.

 When you have these left in your take out bag, don't throw them away.

Get a large zip lock and drop them in it and put it in the freezer.  They make wonderful frozen packs for those tiny injuries. When you grab an ice cube, they tend to melt all over...but this tiny Ketchup bag is absolutely perfect.

Eye Glass Cases and Snack Packs Shared by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Eye Glass Cases

I guess I stumbled on this one because my art is on some eye glass cases. So I think about those all the time.

 There are other uses for those eye glass cases.

Did you ever notice if you put one of those snack bags in your purse in the morning by the time you pull it out the snack is crumbs, crushed and smashed?

Your eye glass case is the perfect size  to hold those snack packs.

Can you think of other things that would fit in their grasp?

My earpiece for my cell phone lives with my sunglasses in harmony.   My small string bag that matches my set easy holds my iPhone.

Sunscreen and Hair Conditioner, What can they replace? Helpful Hints from a Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Sunscreen and Hair Conditioner...what do they have in common?


  Sometimes when you have stored away the sunscreen for the winter, you discover in the spring that it is expired.

Yes Sunscreen can expire too! Maybe that is why you got burned last year.

Instead of throwing it away, use it for shaving cream for your legs or share it with your hubby for his face. 

Sunscreens are usually thick and will provide the perfect barrier to prevent razor burn and at the same time provide moisturizing properties.

OR...say you are in the shower and you realize you do not have your favorite shaving cream.... grab your hair conditioner.  Put a handful on your wet leg and lightly rub it on.  Your razor will glide right over your leg and again the moisturizer in your cream conditioner for your hair works wonders on your legs. 

Someone will have very smooth legs, a smooth face or smooth under arms either way.

At our house we use Kiss My Face for shaving.  We share the bottle and I always have one in back up.  

"There's never a dull moment with our superbly moisturizing shave. If you've never used a shave creme, try it for a difference you can see and feel. We think our natural healing, antiseptic botanicals and soothing aloe vera will elevate your shaving experience beyond your wildest expectations. Give it a try for the smoothest, cleanest shave on the planet! "  Fresh from the website.
