    I enjoyed the article about storage. I’m always looking for new ways to store my “stuff” so I can see it and use it – while at the same time not having it sit out taking up working space. I liked the use of the chicken wire.

    I love the spool rack for washi tape and twine…it’s something I really could use.

  15. Kathy Mc says:

    Thrift store organizational ideas are awesome, especially the swivel spice rack for storing sequins, rhinestones, pearls & buttons. Sorry but I don’t have a Pinterest or Facebook account but wanted to comment anyway. The cards stamped using household goods are very clever, such as ping pong paddles and dominoes.

    Buy more sustainable electronics that you will not
    have to replace as often. Relaxed ecological requirements and job conditions make e-waste disposal more lucrative, but also
    more dangerous in those nations. Our soil and water may become contaminated, which would eventually enter our food
    chain, if these items are not properly disposed of.

  38. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any
    methods to stop hackers?

  42. The ideal place is a back yard or shared green space where composting is allowed.
    Something else that many people combine with
    their compost is the feces from their pets. However if
    you do encounter the problem that the bin or pile is producing a bad odor, you
    can fix this by turning the material with a pitchfork as well as
    adding more material that will help circulate more air.
