Zebra Pens

One thing I think everyone, regardless of age, these days does is write. You write in school, your shopping list, and at work. Every day requires some type of writing and lets face it, nothing is more annoying then being in the middle of writing something and your pen skips or your pencil breaks. Well a high quality pen is one of the best investments I think by far that you can have. Not only are they nice to have but they save so much pointless stress. recently I got the chance to review 11 great pens, pencils, and highlighters from a company called Shoplet.com. Zebra Pens were a brand that I admit I had never heard of before I was approached with these products.
Being the nerd I am I was stoked that I received so many different types.lol From green highlighters that can be use for homework and reading. To a mechanical pencil that saves me the one thing that really annoys me most....a breaking pencil! Now I know what you are thinking and pen is a pen is a pen right? Nope wrong! What is more annoying then taking that pen and writing happily then it stops. The roller ball in these Zebra pens really helps prevent that. In the weeks I have been writing with these pens I have yet to have that angry moment where my pen stops or skips. Now I have talked a lot about these pens but I want to speak a little more about the company. Shoplet.com is a a great company, they offer office supplies at a great price and deliver them straight to your door. They have everything from pens and markers to paper and chairs. Make sure to take a moment and check them out on Facebook.

I can not for the life me ever find a pen in my house. I'm thinking maybe these would be great if I could hide them from my kiddos... :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

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 like to dust mine …
