Who else will be watching the Olympics starting tonight? I usually try, but this year I did download the app on my Fire TV so if I miss it I can still watch it. Not the same live but I will still be able to. Here is a list of pretty cool craft ideas that I have found.

0803160610 I just recently got these IceWabanga Ice Pop Molds. They are amazing. I have to say 0803160622they are the best molds I have used and I’ve gotten a couple different ones. I made the type of pops I wanted. I did a sorta orange creamsicle. I just mixed a little of my vanilla greek yogurt with some orange juice. I don’t know the exact measurements but made it loose enough to pour. I haven’t used the push pop ones yet though.

They came out so easy. Some of the molds I’ve used in the past I had to run under hot water, but these you just wiggled and they popped right out. So my frustration level was a zero. Something I will definitely use while it’s still hot out.

If you’re looking for a good pop mold this is the one. Plus it’s dishwasher safe. I wash stuff like this by hand but if you’re feeling lazy you can throw it in the dishwasher. I know I will at some point myself.

0617161007 I absolutely loved the Gel Pens Set, 48 Pack by Chalko – Non-Toxic, Water Resistant, Ink Pen Set.  I didn’t use them for coloring that I saw some people do. It’s not my tool of choice when I color. I used them while writing myself notes, at work, lists, etc.

They include:

CLASSIC – red, green, black, & blue.
PASTEL – peach, light orange, white, blue, pink, yellow, orange, & violet.
GLITTER– black, blue, red, green, violet, turquoise, yellow, orange, pink, brown, gold, & silver.
METALLIC – gold, silver, violet, pansy, red, orange, sea green, & blue.
NEON – yellow, blue, green, orange, violet, pink, red, & light orange.

They write so smooth and my son enjoyed them as well. I have been using them and I they haven’t dried up yet. Go get yourself some, even for back to school. My son used them at the end of school.

0615161808a I have always wanted to try something like this. Cutting fresh herbs with a knife has always frustrated me so I always avoided them. The Chefast Herb Scissors Set – Premium Kitchen Shears with 5 Stainless Steel Blades – Multipurpose Herb Bags, Safety Cover with Cleaning Comb, Herbs eBook, and Stylish Box Included are amazing. When I was making Swedish meatballs I needed fresh parsley and I used these and it was quick and easy. Those are my two favorite words when it comes to cooking. The cover even doubles for cleaning out the blades. They are sharp so you have to be really careful. I’ve always been careful with anything sharp. I would definitely recommend these.
