Pilot Pens- If You Need a Pen They Have It For You!

        I have talked many times on the blog about how much I love a good pen. Recently I was sent an amazing selection of pens from Pilot Pens, so many in-fact I will be dividing this review into two parts! 
All the great pens that will be reviewed, in a cute little lunchbox!
        With the school year coming pens are on my mind more then they normally would be, I need black pens and red pens, blue pens and cool pens. It amazes me these days how different they make them all and how as a child even the wrong pen can seemingly make you the target of being bullied. My oldest son is getting to that age. Pilot offers so many different pens it is hard to know where to even start, I guess I will start with the basics.
This is the Pilot Precise V7
        The Pilot Precise V7 is an extra fine tipped pen, with a unique liquid ink technology this pen offers a consistent flow of ink. We are really enjoying this pen, I actually have exchanged my normal pen that I keep in my wallet for this pen. The main reason being I hate when it is time to sign a check or a receipt and my pen misses part of my name. I have horrible hand writing already, going over it a second time. Or even better having to put a little twirlly to get my pen writing again, is nothing short of annoying. The smooth flow of this pen avoids that. We received the basic black pen which is great for every day use, but this pen is available in 7 great colors(black, blue, red, green, purple, pink and turquoise). With its visible ink supply there is no guessing game about when it is time to replace it either!
The Pilot G2
        Another great set of pens we received was the Pilot G2. We were lucky enough to receive two different packages of this great pen. The G2 has a gel ink that is meant for smooth writing and is also smear proof. I loved the smear proof feature of this pen. I am the worse when it comes to dragging my hand across the paper as I write. When I am writing just one sentence it doesn't come into play. But sometimes I like to sit down and write out my blog posts first, and that is were it becomes an issue.lol With this pen the problem is solved and I can continue to drag my lazy hand around the paper. The Pilot G2 is available in 4 sizes(Ultra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine, and Bold) as well as 15 different colors(black, blue, red, green, purple, burgundy, pink, turquoise, navy, orange, caramel, lime green, periwinkle, teal, and hunter green.) The G2 is also available with neat pen designs! If you are looking for a pen with a million possibilities you will surely find a G2 for you.
       We are having so much fun with these pens and the fun has just begun! Make sure to swing by tomorrow, as the days go by the pens will get even cooler! You don't want to miss all the great products I have left to show you.

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 …
