Pom Pom Clown Craft


Do you need a super craft for a Circus Birthday Party? This clown craft is quick, easy, low-cost, and lots of fun! A variation with hands and feet is included. Follow my DIY to create your own!

Freestanding Foam Core Clown Poster


We wanted  a "freestanding" clown poster to welcome our guests to the Circus Birthday Party for 2 grand-kids, and here's the result. This simple, low-cost, project from a $1.00 piece of foam core board goes a step further: when the poster is removed, the stand is reusable.

Microwave Italian Meatloaf



I found a recipe for "Favorite Meatloaf" in a Microwave Cookbook many years ago. Over the years, I have modified this recipe, creating a spicy, low-sodium, and low-fat version. The result - Microwave Italian Meatloaf - is now a family favorite. Try it! It's quick, easy, and yummy-delicious!!

Easy Trail Mix





Trail Mix is a mixture of bite-sized ingredients that travel well, and being on a restricted diet has encouraged me to make my own Easy Trail Mix! The grand-kids love to make and eat this trail mix, and ingredients can easily be changed according to your family's favorites! Happy trails!
