February Cricut project and advice to prevent colds

Wow, you all gave me some great advice about cold prevention.
I will buy some odorless garlic and VitD3 today and am also going to look into getting a humidifier. Our air has been extremely dry, so dry that I have not worn my 2 favorite tops that have some polyester content as they just cling and crackle from the static electricity, 
I forgot to mention I have been taking Cold-eeze tabs and this last cold has been very short, just a few days compared to 10-14 days of the others. We have also been taking probiotics for 2 weeks before this last cold hit us. 
Thank you all so much !


One of my 2014 resolutions was to make at least one Cricut project every month. This one is just barely making it in Feb. 
I have a stash of these sturdy Folgers cans. 

I took one of the big ones and added a few Cricut letters, some scrapbook paper and ModPodge and made it into a HotWheels storage container.

It is really simple but it looks nice in the toy room.

I also decorated the other 2 big ones to use to hold the compost scraps before they go to the tumbler. But they are even simple than the car one. They look better than an old coffee cab but not good enough for a photo. 

when the sleeping grandbaby wakes up, we are going to do a couple errands,  then I hope to finish my frugal February posts later today and join up with with FOF at Renaissance

  1. What a cute "CARS" can. It does look nice in the toy room. I don't have any Folger's cans, but my craft table has some other containers that are just too good to toss out. And I do use them eventually for something. Great idea and cute Cricut project.

  2. What a nice way to hold all his cars.

    My polyester clothes have a lot of static cling, too. I've figured out that if I apply lotion first they don't cling to my body.

  3. That's very cute! Did you glue the car to the lid? I'm thinking a smaller can with a pack of Hot Wheels would be a fun birthday gift for a young one.

  4. Hmmm... that is a great idea with the coffee containers. I am going to have my parents start saving a few for me.

    We have a humidifier and the static is still driving me crazy! It has really helped with my coughing. Good luck on finding a prevention for you cold. When you find something that works, please share.
