Sewing Machine Projects for Kids: How to Make a Tulle Skirt

Teaching your daughter how to sew and design her own clothes is a great way to save money in this economy on expensive fashion items. Sewing machine projects are a fun and cheap alternative to spending your money on over-priced clothing from the mall — and your kids can join in the fun too! After all, Mom shouldn’t be the only one with some style, right? Kids want to be fashionable, too, and the hottest trend in kids and pre-teen clothing is the ballerina-style tulle skirt. Even fashion designers like Stella McCartney are now designing tulle skirts for kids, and retail prices can run up to $30 or more. For an alternative to these retail prices, try this no-pattern sewing machine project with your daughter: Visit your local fabric store and purchase a couple of yards of tulle. Bright neon and pastel colors are popular for young pre-teen girls, so consider hot pink, yellow, orange, and lime green. Each yard of tulle is pretty cheap and only costs about $1-3 (depending on the store). Purchase …

Take the “L” to Midway Airport from Jefferson Park

Do you live on the North Side, but prefer to fly out of Midway to avoid the craziness of O’hare? Palma airport to Santa Ponsa is there to help you with that. Many people have no idea how easy it is to take public transportation to Midway. I have friends who pay an arm and a leg to take a cab, but the L gets you there and there are elevators if you have a difficult time with your bags because you are a senior or have a disability. Also, priority seating is mandatory for Public transportation. I live near Jefferson Park Station which is situated in the best neighborhood (Jefferson Park) in Chicagoland IMHO. Even so, I take the Montrose bus to the Montrose Blue line station as I live closer to Montrose. Jefferson Park Station is far better if you absolutely require the elevator as not all stops have an elevator. (Check here for details Access details ) Of course, you will need a transit card to ride the train at all, but …

Make Your Myspace and Facebook Profile Private or an Employee Reference

Myspace and Facebook have become popular social networking sites for many people. They’ve also become a popular tool for employers wanting to check out their prospective employees. Talk about a personal reference. We all want to separate our personal lives from our work lives, but by publishing your private life online, it pretty much makes it public to not only friends and strangers, but to employers as well. Becoming a popular person in these social networking sites may be your goal, but if you’re hunting for a job, it might be best to set your profile as private. The only way someone can view your profile if it is private is by signing up on Myspace or Facebook and requesting you as a friend. Of course they will still be able to view your default picture so if it’s a picture of you acting in an unbecoming way, you might want to consider changing it. To set your profile to private on Facebook, you go to the Privacy page, click Profile and adjust your settings …

Some of these products are totally free to try, while others require a small fee for shipping and handling the product to me, usually between a dollar to $10. Most of the time, offers that require …

Victoria’s Secret Perfume “Super Model” Review

I’m pretty devoted to Victoria’s Secret when it comes to undergarments because they seem to be the only brand that offers a huge selection of cute underwear in every style, cut and fabric you could think of. Their undergarments are also the only ones that fit me properly. Victoria’s Secret also has a beauty line, everything from cosmetics to fragrances. I’ve gone in there a few times just to test their products out. I love most of their scents and for some reason when I was looking for a perfume I didn’t even consider Victoria’s Secret until my boyfriend suggested it. I spent all day searching for the perfect scent and found ‘Super Model’ within ten minutes of walking into their store. Things that I liked about Victoria’s Secret ‘Super Model’ perfume: It comes in a simple but chic, rectangular glass bottle that has a golden pearlescent sheen to it. It’s a spray bottle and not the kind of a perfume that I have to dab on. It sprays just enough product out, one spray …

Visualization Techniques for Bowling

Visualization should be a part of every bowler’s game in order to develop their competitiveness and raise their average. My friends always joke about the fact that we are in the PBA (practice bowler’s association). That’s because we always seem to get lined up perfectly during the 10 – 15 minutes before actual league play. Then, in the short, few minutes from the time the desk announces practice is over to the time that the arrows come up on the scorers, the line changes on the lanes. We commonly brush it off as “oil carry-down,” because, “what other explanation is there?” I believe that it has happened to all of us at one time or another. What happened? Where did the shot go? More often than any other reason, it’s because the time for actually keeping score has come and people naturally tend to tense up. The degree of tension experienced by each individual depends largely on how well-developed their mental game is. The large majority of bowlers practice the physical aspects of their game …
