Interesting Links for the Day

I've been cruising the web for the last little while, randomly clicking on links in the blogs I read. Here are some noteworthy links from today (and some from my list of faves):

1) For those of us who are wishing for summer...here are 32 fabulous recipes for making ice pops/popsicles/whatever you call them.

2) Are you a crafty person? Have a bunch of jeans too worn out/too favoured to donate? Here's a way to turn those jeans/jean jackets/jean skirts into something you'll have forever! http://craftingagreenworld.com/2009/01/17/diy-denim-sew-your-own-gorgeous-denim-quilt/

3) Homeschooling? Here's a link for a bunch of homeschooling resources.

4) Lots of breastmilk in the freezer about to expire? Have some in the fridge that's too old to feed your babe? Make soap!

5) Collect pillowcases? Here's something to do with them, other than their original purpose: make aprons!

6) Build it Solar, a great website for making solar ovens, stills, food dryers...plus tons of links for other great eco-friendly projects.

That's it for now, I'll save some of my other faves for a different day.

Would anyone like me to make this a regular post topic? Say, once a month or something? Let me know.

Have a great week!

ok..are you surprised that I have something that's "a touch weird"???

Berry said...

Wow, awesome site! Let me know how it turns out!

I have several 5-gallon glass jugs! I'm totally up for trying to make some ginger beer.

I KNOW you're weird!

I've tried this soda
http://www.learningherbs.com/ginger_ale_recipe.html already, which uses bread yeast. It was interesting. I'm not sure I liked it, but I did fiddle with the recipe so I'm going to try it again. Definitely different than the HFCS laced store bought pop.

I also want to try some of these ideas: http://bearmedicineherbals.com/?p=376
