Recycled Light Bulb Carrot Ornaments

Maybe it’s because my Bacon Asian Orange Chicken Pizza is a semifinalist recipe in the Pillsbury 1 Million dollar Bake-Off contest, or maybe it’s because carrots always remind me of Spring, either way I have orange crafts on the brain. This “orange” craft is also green, recycling old burned out light bulbs into ornaments. 
Materials Used:
Old Bent Tip Light Bulbs
Orange Yarn
Green Yarn
Green Floral Wire
Hot Glue
Green Permanent Marker
Orange Permanent Marker
Using scissors or wire cutters, cut floral wire in half. Wrap it around the base of your light bulb, forming a loop for hanging. With hot glue, attach orange yarn, wrapping tightly around bulb as you go. At the base of bulb, wrap green yarn tightly around base and floral wire. Hot glue ends of yarn down. Tie a bow around top of bulb with more green yarn. If any hot glue shows up white, color it in with your permanent markers.
Well that’s what I have been making. What have you been up to? Please come share at our Anything Goes weekly linky party.  If you have not cast your vote yet in the Pillsbury Bake-Off please do so now. My Bacon Asian Orange Chicken Pizza would love your vote. Voting ends for the Doable Dinners category on 3/28/13.

Biz Coupons Fight Those Stains

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Biz Stain Fighter for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Biz Stain Fighter  is a detergent booster for laundry stains. It can be added to your wash to fight those tough stains. With two boys, I know all about tough stains. Let’s be clear, it’s not a laundry detergent, but rather a laundry detergent booster. We have all at one time or another, used only laundry detergent on tough stains, and been disappointed to say the least, when they didn’t come out clean. That’s where Biz comes in handy. Biz is also a multi purpose cleaner for your home. Please watch the video to see what I mean.  Biz powder can work as a multi-purpose cleaner for many cleaning tasks around the house.  So what is your  least favorite thing about cleaning your laundry and other household messes? For me it’s dirty socks. Whatever the chore – Biz can fight it for you! I have a $1 Biz coupon for you too! 
Biz can help you with laundry stains, household dirt, dust, etc. It’s the new multipurpose cleaner for your home. If you can clean it, Biz will be able to help! For more info like Biz on Facebook and @BizStainFighter on Twitter.
You can locate a store near you that carries Biz  at
Please note, Biz Stain Fighter is a detergent BOOSTER, not an actual detergent. Biz will give your laundry detergent the boost it needs to get the toughest messes clean. 
What’s your toughest stain you have ever eliminated? Let me know in a comment below. I would also love to know if you have tried Biz in your home too?
