His personal message for you this Christmas <3.

Hi everyone,

I trust you are excited about the coming holiday season!

I don’t know about you but I have a dreadful time when it comes to buying gifts. This year, I decided to plan ahead and check out ideas in advance. Even created a Gift Ideas board on Pinterest to save the ideas I found, for future reference.

Remember I wrote about starting an online business and one of the benefits was the opportunity to turn your passion into a business?

That’s what I have done. I’m not an artist but I love unique designs and decided to set up my own online store to sell my designs. I’ll share with you how to do that in a later post if you’re interested.

These are some of the designs in the necklace section of my online store. All necklaces are made in the USA and affordably priced below $20 for now. Quality satisfaction guaranteed.

We’ll start with the one which most of my customers absolutely love!

Check out the rest of this beautiful necklace collection and if you’re looking for other gift ideas, check out the rest of my designs at Ken’s Creations.

They are all made in USA. This is not something you get these days. Most American products sold in the USA are made in Asia.

I’m off for the night! This has been a exciting day with so many orders coming in!

Talk to you soon. I’ll be back with more ideas on how you can turn your dream into an amazing business!

Till then, as always, leave a comment and thank you for sharing my posts with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!

How to Use Banana Leaves for Cleaning & Polishing Wooden Floors

 

how-to-use-banana-leaves-to-clean-and-polish-wooden-floors_1

 

Hi everyone!

It’s the weekend and I had the idea for this post when I received an email from a reader of my blog about a post I wrote awhile back. He wanted to know how to use banana leaves to clean and polish wooden floors.

When I was young, my mother use to make us scrub and wax the floor every morning. Back then, we had two choices for waxing the floor. Using commercial wax cream or use banana leaves from our backyard.

We chose banana leaves to polish the floor because being kids, we used the banana leaves as sleds and we would slide around while polishing the floor in the process. We made chores fun!

Today, because we avoid using chemical products in the house and opt for natural alternatives whenever possible, I still use banana leaves as it is freely available.

Here’s how to use banana leaves to clean and polish your wooden floor:

  1. Choose matured green banana leaves.

  2. Wipe it clean.

  3. Dry under the sun for 5 to 8 minutes.

  4. Remove the middle hard portion of the banana leaf.

  5. Cut the leaves into desired sizes for easy handling.

  6. Use the banana leaves just as you would use a cloth, to clean and polish the wooden floor until the surface gets shiny, glossy and bright.

  7. For wooden tables wipe with a dry cloth after cleaning, for best result.

  8. Dispose the banana leaves when it loses all its moisture. You can make them into a compost as they are biodegradable.

Caution:

The floor will be very slippery after polishing so please be careful, especially when cleaning staircases.

If you have children and elderly people living with you, be sure to keep them away from the area until it is safe.

I hope you will find this method helpful as it will reduce the use of harmful chemicals in your home.

Common Foods Cats and Dogs Should Avoid

common-foods-cats-dogs-should-avoid

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful week!

I’ve been spending time with our 7 cats and our cute doggie, Jerry. They are all rescues and are now a huge part of our family.

Caring for them properly is an important concern for me and I am always researching ways to keep them healthy and happy.

Today, I would like to share with you types of food that dogs and cats should avoid.

Common Foods Cats and Dogs Should Avoid

These tips do not apply if you feed your cats and dogs dried pet food. However, if you feed your babies food that you prepare, you might want to take note of the following common foods to avoid:

  1. Grapes and raisins – can cause weakness, lack of appetite, dehydration, abdominal pain and severe kidney failure in dogs.

  2. Macadamia nuts – can cause weakness, depression and vomiting in dogs.

  3. Xylitol – can cause severely decreased blood glucose levels followed by severe liver failure in low doses in dogs.

  4. Chocolate, tea and coffee – can cause hyperactivity, vomiting, heart arrhythmias and seizures in dogs and cats.

  5. Onions and Garlic – can cause red blood cells to decrease leading to weakness and pale gums especially in cats.

These are not common foods but do keep them away from your babies:

Alcohol, anti-freeze (tastes sweet so dogs may lick), rodenticides/insecticides, coins, centipedes, butterflies, caterpillars, DEET containing products, acetominophen (paracetamol), heavy metals (lead, zinc, iron), any human medications or supplements, nicotine, illegal recreational drugs, Minoxidil (used for hair growth in people) and paintballs, among others.

Our focus is on prevention and not on remedies when something has happened.

That’s all for today! Thank you for sharing this post!
