No More Gap!

I don't know about everyone else, but I have a problem with jeans gaping at the back waistband.  They fit well everywhere, except at the waist.  So here's a quick fix...maybe 15 or 20 minutes tops!

A Missionary Stocking

I know you can find variations of these missionary stockings on the internet.  

Some creative person came up with the original idea and, unfortunately, I don't know who it was so I can't give credit...sorry!

My missionary son, however, is a vest-wearing kind of guy.  So, I did my own version of a missionary stocking.  You can check out the step-by-step tutorial after the jump.

DIY Dig Kit

What is a dig kit you ask?  Well, its something that your Minecraft enthusiast might enjoy, or a budding archeologist.  I happen to have both in the form of grandsons.  This was a super simple gift to make, but it yielded high rewards.  I picked up the following supplies:

•plaster of paris
•beach sand (from the sandbox)
•foil pans (2 for $1 at the dollar store)
•cooking spray
•rocks and trinkets
•kitty litter (optional)

To complete the kit, you might opt for safety goggles, hammer, chisel, magnifying glass, and a small paint brush.
