Make Sparkle-Toed Shoes With Glitter and Mod Podge

Make sparkle toed shoes with glitter and mod podge
Somehow I have accumulated about a dozen pairs of ballet flats and they are all either grey, black or brown. I wanted to play around with a pair to see if I could add a little pop of color.

Not long ago, I made sparkle dresser knobs with only some Mod Podge and glitter and they were really easy so I thought I’d see if it would work on shoes.

All you need is a pair of ballet flats, Mod Podge, and glitter. With spring on the way, I chose a pastel blend of glitter. Continue reading

Fresh Mango Salsa

If you are looking for a dish to bring to a cookout this Memorial Day or just a fresh, healthy (and low calorie) treat, this mango spring salsa is amazing!

Fresh Mango Salsa

I actually found the recipe in a mailing from Kroger. It looked so good, I had to try it.

And since it was so good, I had to share it.

What you will need:

Fresh Mango Salsa

1/2 cup mango, diced
1/2 cup (each) green and yellow peppers, diced
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup corn (canned or fresh)
1/2 up canned black beans, drained and rinsed
4 tsp. jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. red onion, chopped
Juice of 1 fresh lime
1 1/2 tsp, sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

This salsa is great with chips.

But I also spread it over a chicken breast and it was wonderful.

This would also be great with pita chips or over fish. It has the most refreshing taste and is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer.

I actually had two batches going because I wanted to experiment with a couple different ingredients.

All I can say is this recipe is perfect just as it is!

Enjoy!

Here A Germ, There A Germ

The first day of spring is coming up on March 20. To celebrate, I’m sharing a tip that isn’t very exciting but it’s important, so stay with me.

All winter long we deal with colds and flus and runny noses. We clean our sheets and towels and wipe down just about every area of our house. But for some reason we tend to forget about the one thing our hands touch all day long- our door knobs.

So, to really leave the winter and all its germs in the past, please join me in a good, old-fashioned door knob cleaning party.

Grab your favorite cleaner and a towel and take a walk around your house.
