Plastic Bead Bowls

Today was the first day of classes for me and of course my teacher was late. Being that I take online courses this meant i had plenty of free time that i had allotted for class :O) So while browsing about on Pinterest, of course, I found something that looked fun. Making bowls out of plastic beads. It was a tutorial by Chameleon Girls that looked fun and easy. Better yet I have been trying to find a way to use these thousands of beads I have. lol I started by finding an oven safe dish. I couldn't find anything real small unfortunately so I ended up trying my hand at a larger bowl :O) Next I applied a layer of cooking oil to the inside with a napkin. at first I wondered ummm...why?? But quickly I realized it was what held the beads into place.lol I was so  glad that her tutorial was easy to follow. After about an hour of picking out beads, because my princess insisted we use only certain colors, we had all our beads placed in the bowl.

I started the oven at 200 degrees like she said to but it was taking FOREVER! So after about 30 minutes I upped the temperature to 350 degrees and they began to melt very quickly. It still took a good 15 minutes before the bowl was to were I wanted it to be. I had a couple gaps so I tried pushing them together ;O) just a tip don't use your finger.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a
