Chemical Free Air Freshener

It takes a second. Baking powder and essential oils. Stir.

Recycle an old jar or glass container.
Put a lid on it, or foil.
Make it look nice, or hide it somewhere.

How to make your own Creepers

♫ you can never have too many platform boots ♫

I have yet to try this one… what a great way to give a new life to the flipflops hanging around at home.

Want to have your own pair of these amazing sneaker Creepers?

INGREDIENTS:
  • Flat Lace ups shoes- Could be Vans, Converse or high tops –High Tops provide more support for your ankles) ,
  • Three pairs of rubber thongs, give or take depending on how high you would like your creepers. You may find that you will need a larger size of thongs than what would you normally wear.
  • Shoe glue – I used 2 tubes.
  • Scissors
  • Large serrated knife
  • Ink pen or pencil
  • Plasti-Dip liquid rubber paint
  • Sponge paint brush
  • Rubber bands
  • Rubber Gloves- So you dont get glue all over your hands

Step 1: Clean the Shoes

  • Ensure that before you start making the shoes that they are thoroughly cleaned, Use Mentholated Spirits or nail polish remover to do so. (It’s essential to make sure everything is clean as dirt and moisture prevent glue from making a secure bond.)

Mia Hug + How 2 Erasure Poem

Erasure poetry is super-easy and really fun to do! I find it helps when I have writer’s block because the words are already there, I just need to make them something new.

In the Middle of a  Hug

by Cathy Casper
erased by Arisetotrash

just now a halo hugs the moon,
and the earth hugs the moon to her side
the mountains hug the mesas holding them close to the river
while the mesa hugs the valley close about the town
and the deer who can’t hug, touch muzzles
chickadees hug plum tree
branches between their tiny feet
as you will hug me when I open the door
of all the ways to hold close, I treasure this four-armed hug
but when you go, and hugs turn into waves, we need not feel alone
the moon
k [.]nows [T]that the Earth will hold her forever in their turning
so, hold this
aware [,] ness in your heart
we are
always in the middle of a hug

This is what In the Middle of a Hug became after I remove what I erased. For my youngest cousin:

Mia

Just a hug, and the earth hugs her back.
That Earth forever aware,
always in the middle of a hug.

What you REALLY WANT must be to learn how to make cheap, easy and efficient notepads that give paper an extra life before being sent to a recycling centre.

First thing’s first: Do you have a bunch of scrap paper?
