Cookies!

Now, before you continue reading, you should know that these are not just any regular cookie. These are something more amazing than your plain old chocolate chip cookies. These are salted chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Nutella.

Look at that!!! You know you want some! The recipe was pretty simple. One thing I would warn you all of is that they have to chill for TWO hours before you can put them in the oven. Not a huge deal, but it is something to know because we didn't know until we were actually making them and they ended getting done at like 9 o' clock at night. But they were still good! Another thing is I would highly suggest refrigerating the Nutella before you bake them. It made it so much easier to make them. But they were crazy good. I would highly suggest you make some. As soon as possible!

How Geeks Celebrate Christmas

To celebrate the Christmas season, I thought we would start off with something a little different. If you have a huge book collection, then this is definitely for you!



Isn't it beautiful?!? I absolutely love it!!! So much that I have been building one over the weekend and currently have one in my bedroom. There is going to be some crocheted Christmas lights on it, but I will save that for another post. It actually is not as hard as it looks! It can be a little time consuming, but is really very easy. It makes me so happy. Mine was a decent size and I used about 142 books. That's how many I counted anyways. It looks absolutely gorgeous sitting in my bedroom. At least a geek like me would think so. These kinds of things are what makes geeks happy. In case you weren't aware that is....

This one is for all of you Doctor Who Fans!

If you like Doctor Who this one is for you! We all love the TARDIS, how could you not? So I decided to make a binder that looks like our beloved TARDIS. For those of you who may wonder, unfortunately the answer is no, it is not bigger on the inside. =( But it still looks cool!! So I started with an old binder, scissors, and duct tape. This was my old binder. I know, it's weird. But I have had it for several years. From back when there was a Hannah Montana....


 Anyways, moving on! I had to remove the lovely plastic covering the binder because it made the Duct Tape look bubbly. So I cut that off and it made it much easier. After that I covered it with the Duct Tape. I covered the entire binder in a dark blue and then I added all the other parts to it. I had some genius idea to create the words by using little strips of Duct Tape. So it took FOREVER. But it looks good! So I am happy with it. Here is the finished binder


Isn't it cool?! I love it!!

How to clean the rubber tips on your Converse shoes!

Hey everyone, I'm finally posting! I'm sorry it took me this long... Oh well, I'm here now!

I just recently got some Converse, and I love them! However.. As soon as I walked out of the shoe store, they were already dirty! I knew right then and there I was going to have to figure out how to re-whiten them. So I googled it, and the most popular result was baking soda! It's so easy, and it works really well!

You will need: 
Baking soda
Water
A small dish
An old toothbrush
Dirty Converse shoes

I definitely had the dirty Converse! 


I mean, they were pretty gross!


So, here's what you do. Get a small container, and add some baking soda. Now, add a tiny bit of water. If it's not enough of a paste, add a little more. You should come out with something looking like this:


Now, get your toothbrush, and apply a pea sized amount of the paste on it.


Now, scrub it in!


Look at those nice suds!


It's okay if you get some on the shoe part, it can be wiped off. After you scrub it in and get all of the dirt off, wipe it off really well with a paper towel. (You can use a napkin, a regular towel, anything to wipe it off.)
I also did the rubber part all around the edges of the bottom, but you don't have to. Your shoes should come out looking something like this!


Look at how nice those are compared to when you started!


By the time you finish, your shoes look as good as new!


It's okay if you make a bit of a mess...it's easy to clean up


It's a really nice trick to get your Converse shoes sparkling again!

Fabulous Trick For Soft Hands

Today we have something a little different. This is something me and my friend Miranda did a little while ago. And can I say that it is amazing!!

http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/67/67/4d/67674d8fbc1967806eeb2a7a3aeb8de6.jpg












So what you do is get a handful of sugar and lay it in your hand like pictured. Then, you put some olive oil on top of your pile of sugar. Rub it all over your hands for about a minute or so, and then rinse off. And let me say, your hands will feel absolutely amazing afterwards! It really does work!! My hands have never been softer. It was so easy yet had fabulous results.

Another Mini Bow and Arrow

Yes I am posting another mini bow and arrow. But this was one I did a while ago. It was ok. I actually was not very pleased with it. It just didn't work very well. Overall I didn't enjoy it very much.You made it with a popsicle stick, dental floss, and a q-tip.

  Although, I didn't soak it in water like it said to. That could've helped.  But I liked my other one better.
