What a fun box!   I couldn't wait to try out the polish.  Of course I have a photo for you on it as well.  It's the Julia-American Beauty.

Frugal Friday With Marsha (linky included)

It's been such a crazy week.....or 2 weeks. I didn't post last week because I was still reeling from Thanksgiving. Ok, we were busy putting up the Christmas tree.

I had shopped some at both Dollar General and Family Dollar on Thanksgiving day and bought 1 toy gift for each of the 10 children. I wrapped those last Friday as well and have them under the tree. Which, btw, the wrapping paper we bought last year after Christmas.

I've been doing a lot of crafts. I should be getting on to making my Christmas gifts, but right now I am finishing up things that I had already started so that I can get them listed in my etsy shop.

I love the holidays, the meaning of them, and the time with family.....I don't like the stress and the hustle and bustle of them!

Today I am sharing 5 uses for mouthwash from the 99 Cent Solutions book:

1. Give your toothbrush a bath. Wash your toothbrush daily in mouthwash. It will kill the germs and your immune system will thank you too.

2. If you bite your tongue, rinse your moth with mouthwash to help your tongue heal faster.

3. Refresh your tired feet. It seems that the marathon runners know this secret. Soak your feet in sugarless mouthwash for 10 minutes. The mint will make them smell sweet and the alcohol will refresh them.

4. Help to heal a bruise. When you bump yourself, alleviate the pain and cut down the discoloration by rubbing the area with a splash of alcohol-based mouthwash.

5. Rinse away skin problems. This is for you cat or dog. If they get minor cuts and scrapes, or even boils, just put mouthwash on cotton balls and clean the wounds. It will clean out the wound and cool down the boils.

It's your turn to share!

Squidoo Hopping--Your Choice Week!

After pretty much taking last week off of everything for Thanksgiving, I have been really working hard this week.  Back to business, especially with Christmas right around the corner.

I am not having a theme this week for the link-up, rather I am going to let you choose the 1 or 2 lenses that you would like to link up.  Maybe it's your bottom 2, your top 2, your latest 2, your favorite 2.  The choice is yours!

Please also link up any blog posts you have done relating to squidoo as well.

Homeschool Journal 11/27/12

Happy Tuesday!
I took last week off from blogging with the holiday.....and I needed a break.

I think I will post these journals every other week.

Thanksgiving week I did have sewing club at church, which means that Jasmine takes her laptop, or workbooks, and she does schoolwork while I sew.  I would really rather her sew for the day with us, but I just can't get her interested in sewing! (I did buy a book at the quilt shop titled Learn How to Quilt in 6 Easy Lessons.  She told me she would work in it with me.  So far we've not gotten past going over the supply list section.)
I did snap a picture of her while we were there.  She was working in some of the SW Advantage software.
So she did have a good day of schoolwork on Tuesday.  She still attends the Bible study upstairs in the morning.  Once it's over we all eat lunch, then she gets to work on whatever it is she's brought.
We also had a full school day on Monday.
Just like yesterday!  We had a full school day with Kansas History, Math, Reading, Vocabulary, Devotions, and Earth Science.  In fact, she did 3 types of math yesterday.  She still has trouble with her multiplication tables, so I pulled out the stack of flash cards.  She worked in the Everyday Math workbook, and we started a new workbook that is all about investing and the stock market.    If we could have days like this 5 days a week it would just be awesome!

Until next week, I am linking up with:
