Tips and Tricks

You know those ideas that are so simple,
so perfect that they make you slap your forehead and say,
"Duh. Why didn't I think of that?"

I love those ideas. Love 'em.
I get a kick out of discovering them and sharing them.
Somehow, a great new idea always makes my day.

Here are a few I thought just might make yours, all courtesy of Pinterest.

So, what about you? Do you have any great ideas to share? Do tell.

These are great! Love the heart-shaped egg :-)
Nothing so good to share...sorry!

Heart shaped eggs!!! I am so going to have to do that. And I just figured out how to do the card trick for my camera. Saw it on Pinterest.

When I want to remove a sticker or label from a glass jar, you know, the ones that never fully come off. I use a hair dryer to heat the sticker as I pull it off. Comes off clean every time.

Hey there - thanks so much for your kind words the other day, I really appreciate them! I agree with you on these ideas above - WHY didn´t I think of that?! :-D

Marilyn said...

Saw the heart shaped eggs on Pinterest too, very clever. But I love the idea of the card on the camera.

Amy said...

GASP! The one for the flash is simply ingenious! And a heart shaped egg? Too cute! Thanks for sharing! {how many exclamation points can you fit into one comment?}

Right now I'm a little short on tips, except to follow your joy. My dear friend Adrienne and I launched our new website this morning -- www.finallyme.com. (And I promptly picked up a load of laundry and sent my back into spasms to celebrate). I hope you'll come visit today and often.

I have no top tips to contribute (other than "it's" only ever means "it is" or "it has"). But I love these, especially the heart-shaped eggs! Must give that one a try.

Pamela said...

The eggs are amazing! How cool to garnish a salad with them. I've stayed away from Pinterest so far...I know it's just a matter of time.

Georgianna said...

What fun! Love that first one! I've also resisted getting into Pinterest. Although I see my images all over there. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Wishing you all a lovely autumn weekend! xoxo

Tracy said...

Wow, Relyn... I'm having that "DOH!" moment too... these are terrific ideas--all of them! The egg is sweet. And the jar matchstick holder with scratch top--I want one! I like Pinterest, but have been avoiding it on purpose... I know I will get seriously hooked and not leave there... LOL. Happy Weekend, my friend :o) ((HUGS))

Jeanie said...

Well, I know what I'm going to do with eggs from now on! That's cool! And I'll have to do the matchstick thing for the lake -- those matches always get damp and the striking side on the box (the boxes I don't already nab and dump the matches from so I can collage them!) is brilliant. (Maybe that's why the matches get damp....)

Great tips! I'm definitely going to try that heart-shaped hard boiled egg trick.

I learned that camera trick with the white card while assisting a photo journalist except that we attached the white paper to the back of the independent flash (can't think of the word right now for a flash that is not built into the camera) with an elastic band.

And my mom used to keep her matches in a jar just like that!

Thank you for linking to Pininterest. I'm going to check out your different boards.

oh my daughter is going to love that heart egg trick. she sends me clever ideas all the time from pininterest. just yesterday a clever idea for storing Christmas ornaments using plastic cups.

Oh, this post made me smile! I have found so many handy ideas on Pinterest, too. In fact, I pinned that very same egg-heart one myself. I've also found some great, simple updo instructions for my hair there that I use all the time now. LOVE Pinterest!

Love that match jar and strike cover, too! xo

Anita said...

I love the heart-shaped eggs! My daughter, a mother of three, is good with tips. She is a list-maker, too, and this post makes me want to write down some of her ideas.

Jaime said...

Oh no, it's pinterest again! If I get addicted, I am blaming you!
Those heart shaped eggs could be partly to blame as well.

Oldies, but Goodies
