Super Bowl Ideas

1. Football Shaped Cake: Simply make your favorite cake in a 10-inch round pan. Cut a 2-inch slice down the middle and push the remaining two pieces of cake together.


2. Easy Chip Dip Holder: Simply place a large/wide wine glass in a deep chip bowl.

3. Penalty Signs: Need some more entertainment during the game? Give your guests penalty signs and create a game for kids/adults. See who can predict the correct penalty call in the game or use them to judge Super Bowl commercials.

Valentine's Day Ideas

1. Skip the card -- and go for something unique. Write down all the reason's your Valentine is "a catch" on a baseball...

2. Create a simple yet thoughtful gift by creating a sign/frame to add to your home with the important dates in your relationship -- first date, engagement date, and wedding date.

3. Give someone a heart attack. Not literally -- but through art. Get a box and write the reasons why you love that special person on cut-out hearts. Either send it in the mail or strategically place the hearts around a room or in a car.

New Year, New You -- Get Organized!

1. Ready to clean out your closet? Switch the direction of your hangers in your closet. As soon as you wear a piece of clothing, return it to your closet with the hanger facing the opposite direction. That way by a certain amount of time -- you'll know what you like and what you should probably donate.

2. Here's a new way to hang your jewelry. Use large pebbles and attach double-side (foam or heavy duty) tape to cling to your bedroom wall. That's it. Add your jewelry and you have the best looking wall on the block.

3. Try a monthly meal planner! Take your pinterest boards and make your own calendar to add your favorite meals.
