How to make a necklace out of a Sobe bottle cap

How to start off doing your first bottle cap necklace

One thing that I did not know about these Sobe bottle cans is that under each bottle cap there is a message of some sort about love, happiness, life in general and the reason of why I did not know about this before is because I've never drank a Sobe drink before sure I have only seen them before in ads in the street and in stores but that is it. Now that I know about this I am more motivated to buy one to taste it and see if they are really good.
Next step......

After you have finished with the whole of choosing your own cap inspirational phrase and decoration now comes the time to start building the necklace. First off you need to make a hole on top of the bottle cap a way that you can do this is by taking a metal rod and have it placed over the flames of the oven but make sure to move the lid as fast as you can while the lid is still warm when you are finished with that part it's time to get the hole ready with a plastic cover utilizing a safety pin go all the way while you are doing this process you can use a small knife and a wedge hole remember - the hole has to be good in size so that your chain is able to fit properly.
Make your bottle cap necklace look interesting not boring.
Make your bottle cap necklace look interesting not boring.
I you want with the scissors you can have the option to take away the rim off from the lid that way it makes your necklace more comfortable to wear and it also makes it look cuter. If you do end up doing this step then have a file at hand so that way you can take away any of the rough spaces that the cap may have but in my opinion I suggest that you do this since the rough spots in the cap are sharp and can otherwise hurt you in your skin while wearing it.
For the end of this creative necklace jewelry making.......

You can go on and by taking a cord you make a knot and tie it properly and tight so it wont come loose another object that you can use is a safety pin to tie it with a piece of string or somewhere else where you can be able to stick to it well.

Different projects that you can do with bottle caps

Precaution instructions that you must follow

When starting and while working on this necklace its important not to ignore the rules in order for the project to come out right, how you want it and for safety reasons.
Some of the things that can happen when not paying attention

  • You risk the chance of cutting yourself accidentally
  • The rod that is made out of metal can become hot so if you touch it by mistake you can burn yourself.
  • Really check that you do not stab your hand when doing this.

Materials that you will need

  • A bottle top
  • Metal Rod
  • Some scissors
  • Chain of some sorts (which ever type of chain you have available is fine)
  • Lot's of safety
  • Finally a safety pin

Make your own playdough

To begin with playdough is one of the easiest toys that you can make at home even the children can make some playdough also In the following I will share with you some instructional information on what you have to do in order to make non-toxic playdough that is safe and fun for kids.
The classic way of making play-dough is when you do it on a stovetop the thing that is usually most preffered when making playdough is that it becomes soft when it is cooked than when it is not.
Something to beware of- to make sure that your dog or any other pets that you may have around at your house are in the kitchen where you are doing the playdouhg because interstingly playdough smells like people food when it is being made and it also has a ton of salt on it and if a dog eats alot it the dog can have a abnormal salt imbalance on the system.
These are some of the things you need to make the playdough.
These are some of the things you need to make the playdough.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoons cream tartar (this gives of some elasticity to the playdough)
  • food coloring ( liquid, powder, or unsweet drink mix for color)
Stir and keep on stirring the playdough mix
Stir and keep on stirring the playdough mix
This is how it looks like after the stirring is done.
This is how it looks like after the stirring is done.
Once you have mixed all of the ingredients together that is when you start to stir the play-dough in low flame you will notice that the play-dough will thicken and that it will look like mashed potatoes. If you start to see that the dough is clumping in the center you can take away the pan that is from the heat and let the dough cool enough. If you notice that the play-dough is sticky that means that it still needs to be cooked longer keep on stirring it and cooking it till it gets more dryer and feels more as a play-dough when you do that you will see the results.
The next step that begins after cooking and making the play-dough comes the kneading and the coloring of the play-dough. What needs to be done for this is you get the dough out into a silicone mat begin by kneading vigorously till the dough turns silky smooth then separate the balls of play-dough so that the coloring part can take place.

From the beggining to start coloring

Till the end!:)
Till the end!:)

How to color the playdpough

To start out first you have to make a divot at the very center of the ball and then let a single drop of food coloring go all the way to the bottom of the clay then go ahead and fold the dough over to get all of the food coloring to spread in all of the play-dough. Make sure that as you are doing the coloring that the food coloring liquid does not stain into your skin keep it away from your hands and the counter also for protection of the hands use some gloves or either a plastic wrap so you can keep your hands clean the concentrated dye coloring will be the only one that may color the skin so when the coloring liquid is well dried into the dough that is when you can touch the play-dough with your hands.
Tip- For the play-dough to have enough color you have to add as much of the food coloring into the dough as much as possible so that the color can be see good and get darker.
The last but not least step is one of the fun most waited parts of this whole project is when the children finally have a chance to play with the play-dough create whatever they want play with the dough and have lots of fun. Something that you and your kids can also do with the play-dough is create different figurines for the holidays or simply just for entertainment and decorations the main most important thing is that everyone can use their imagination and have a great time.

Out of the darkness

I used to live in the darkness before
a darkness of lies
a darkness of untrust
in my inner soul.

It kept me in a bubble
for as long as I can remember.
Now I have come to realize
with the new
presence of god in me
that with each prayer
I pray to him
he will listen and change
my heart forever.

How to create a 80's leopard nail art

To begin with......

If you are really into manicure art and you want to try something totally different then this one is for you I assure you your nails will look fantastic in this bright purple, teal and totally 80's leopard nail art.

What you will need for this tutorial

1) a nail polish with the name of color club Pucci-licious which is purple.
2) Milani fresh neon teal a hot pink color
3) OPI DC cherry blossom
4) A Knoad plate m57 and Konad special polish in black - Konad is such an easy thing to use when creating your nail art and it is also consistent.
You add in the purple then the color green.
You add in the purple then the color green.

How to start......

You don't have to use the Konad for this nail art if you don't feel like it that is what you can use and in my opinion is much more easier are a less expensive nail art pen the ones you can buy at a drugstore or at Wal-Mart for a lower price or either you can choose to use a black nail polish and you will also need a toothpick in order to shape the leopard circles.
Another fact is when creating this 80's nail art look some nails are only purple and some are teal so each nail is set on its own color which looks really awesome it may also seem kind of random I don't know if it does but that is how it appears to me in appearance so hope you can figure it out somehow someway. Then after that you add in the pink dotted spots by using a dotted tool so you can add some color to the leopard art the rest is then coated with a Seche Vite then on the side I recommend you to use a perfect formula gel coat that is lieu for the base coat since it is a great treatment for your nails.:)

How to make a DIY pencil cup!

Making your own DIY pencil cup can be creative and economical at the same time because that way you wont have to be worrying about buying one and it can also be good for the environment since you can use an old can to turn it into a useful new object. So have fun making it!
Materials that you will need for this project:
  • 28 ounce can it has to be clean and empty
  • A 12 by 18 inch sheet of construction paper ( of any color)
  • Some scissors
  • A short white paper
  • some colored markers
  • Glue stick
  • Personal photos
  • A colorful plastic or craft tape
First what you have to do is take off the label that was from the can then after that you get the label that you took off from the can in order to sketch the edges of the label in the construction paper. Then you take the sketched rectangle and begin to cut it out of the construction paper just make sure that you leave a bit of extra in the end so that way you can also use it as a leftover for when you wrap the paper around the can to cover the can.
Take a pencil and draw a little rectangle on the white paper after that cut out the rectangle. Then here comes the fun part which is my favorite one just feel free to express yourself you can write a poem, a funny anecdote, or it can also either be your name or the name of the person that you are planning to give it to you can write all of those things inside the small rectangle that you created. One tip to know- is to make sure that the small rectangle is glued in the center of the rectangle that you made in the beginning.
Now if you want to add in any personal pictures that you may have into your pencil cup what I recommend for you to do is to first choose the pictures that you think would be best for the pencil cup holder choose the ones that you like the most. Then cut out the faces and any other images that you might want to include on the pencil holder just remember that if you are making this for you to have fun and just use your imagination create it as how you want it to look like. But if you are doing this as a gift for someone then include pictures that remind you of that person in general for example it can be of the great times that you have had together or any funny moments that make you both laugh out loud. To decorate the pictures you can draw flowers, random patterns, stems and leaves any way you like anywhere around the pictures inside the rectangle with a marker.
Then you take the rectangular shaped construction paper the one that is decorated you wrap it around the can make sure to glue the ends of the paper in the can with the glue stick so it can stick real good into the can. After that you grab a colorful plastic or a craft tape in order to hide the rims that are in the can as a reminder make sure that you fold the edges of the tape from the inside or under the can in order for you not to see the edges of the can.
Here comes the final step for this DIY project once you are done giving the final touches to your pencil cup now you can put all of the pencils, pens, or markers that you want and free yourself from any clutter of pens that you had in the past.

Why do people get angry so much?

Are you one of those people that has ever wondered why people get angry a lot? well almost everyone in this world gets angry at one point or another in life anger is part of our emotions also just like when someone feels love, hope, anxiety, sadness, and fear. Anger has two sides a positive side and a negative side firstly positive anger is when it boosts your determination in overcoming challenges and problems on the other hand negative anger is when the person lives it faster, more times, and more intense than others.

When otherwise provoked the angry person may start physical and verbal attacks when this happens it usually means that anger controls them and the most appropriate way is when the person controls the anger this is also usually referred to as problem anger and this type of anger is somewhat dangerous. For example even with smaller issues there can be fights that are caused by the person who has anger issues with this there is grief between themselves and the people around them. As a matter of fact some reports that come from around the world say that almost an increasing number of people have anger problems. There are many existing factors that can cause anger to arise although scientists believe that anger is an emotion that is misunderstood and that all of us react to "anger triggers" something that you should know about anger triggers is that it is something that can frustrate or annoy an individual resulting in injustice or unfairness it can also happen when someone feels insulted disrespected or a threat to our authority and reputation.

nger triggers can happen to anyone they become different from age, culture, and gender the reactions often vary some folks may get angry and then they forget about what they were mad about they let it go while others they become mad easily and stay angry for days, months or even years.
Parental example
Parents are an example for the personality development of their own children in childhood and adolescence. As children grow they start to learn to face their anger by using the same anger behaviour that any member of the family uses a perfect example for this would be a child that lives in a hostile place where his parents get mad for simple smaller matters then the child is going to be like that also as an adult they are going to think that it is OK to get angry at life's problems instead of finding a solution to solve them. In other words anger is like a stain and when the kids experience too much of it they may have anger management problems as adults.
Anger can also be common in cities that are crowded with a large population inhabiting that city getting into some history during the year of 1800 abut 3 percent of the worlds population lived in urban areas. In 2008 the number of people rose to 50 percent and by 2050 it is predicted to go up to 50 percent, and by 2050 it is predicted to go up by 70 percent as a result as time goes by more and more people live in crowded cities and that produces anger problems because of traffic jams, and stress, air pollution, noise, scarce housing, cultural clashes and high crime rates. So it gives residents a reason to lose patience.
Economic problems can also be a factor since almost 210 million people across the globe are predicted to be unemployed and it also affects individuals who do have a job because they might worry of loosing their jobs this leads to thinking of the worst to happen. Prejudice and injustice also contribute to people getting angry for the fact that they face some form of prejudice or racial problems meaning that it limits some persons to have full access to the basic necessities that almost everyone needs like jobs, education, housing.  

How to keep anger under control
If you ever think about it the bible expresses ways to control anger beautifully the bible psalmist David explained "Let anger alone and leave rage: do not show yourself heated up only to do evil". If you ever want to avoid saying or doing something that you might later on regret badly then I would recommend for you to keep yourself cool. There are three ways that you can consider to get your anger under control.
# 1- Decrease anger's Intensity
It's important to relax and go slow on your emotions the first thing that you can do is to stop saying the first things that come to your mind otherwise if you feel the urge to get extremely exaggerating then try to remember this bible quote saying "The beginning of contention is as one letting out waters: so before the quarrel has burst forth, take your leave" (Proverbs 17:14) and when you actually start applying this proverb into your life you will start seeing anger differently.
# 2 - Learn to relax
Another bible saying that will help fix you emotionally, physically, and spiritually goes like this "A calm heart is the life of the freshly organism" (Proverbs 14:30). Using proverbs from the bible plus relaxation techniques will all help your feelings of anger go away. Some of the methods of reducing anger are to:
- Breathe deeply this one probably almost everyone knows it is known to e one of the fastest ways that makes lower your anger intensity.
- Everytime you are breathing deeply repeat words to yourself that are calming but just dont say the words out loud so that way people wont hear them.
- Get yourself into an activity that you fully enjoy doing such as reading, listening to music, gardening or something else like writing in your journal that always helps and it can also be a good therapy.
- Do exercise regularly and eat healthy.
Those are just some of the ways that anyone who finds themselves with anger controlling problems can do. Remember dont let anger get the best of you all of us human beings have the power of stopping anger.

Faith is about never 
giving up never 
backing down 
among the face of fear.

Faith is about waking up everyday
without knowing how your 
day will be but always 
thinking positive.

Faith is about realizing that 
there will always be love in life 
it will never die
because it's what keeps us alive. 

Faith is about wanting a second 
chance at life and at your dreams 
when there seems to be no way 
out because from then 
you will know that in the end 
there will be an 
open door for you.

You are a shame

I sacrificed my time for you walked a 
thousand miles just 
to see your face
your smile, 
but you pushed me away 
without your presence 
without your eyes. 

It kills me inside but you 
don't care because
you don't love me. 

What a shame you are a 
So stop playing your old dirty games 
because they do not go with you. 

I wanted more with you 
but you were too blind 
what a shame
you are a shame.

10 things to do with your friends on Valentines Day

This is why being single rocks!

There are several valentines day activities that you can do with your friends for example one of my first valentines day ideas that i will share with you because when I read about it it just sounded good to my ears OK so here it is

Throw a non valentines day party- This is something really awesome that would really be good to do with friends for this type of party you can cook dinner, play Taboo, do a wine tasting, have a dance contests and see who dances better, have a sex and the city or Gossip girl show marathon watch your favorite episodes with your friends have some girl time who needs guys

My second idea- If you and your friends dont want to spend valentines day indoors then get together with yor girlfriends and some of your guy freinds and you can allgo out to a bar thats in your city there may be one closer that you think its just a matter of searching if you or your friends dont know of a bar nearby then a helpful searching site that you can use is m.bing.com. Also going to a bar is a good idea since a lot of singles go there as a hang out spot so you may never know what can happen there is always a chance to meet someone new.

Third valentine idea- This is something that I picked on my own from my list of ideas you can think of any hobbies that you like to do on your spare time wheter you like to learn to cook new things, try a spin class, take a guitarr lessons or if you want to learn a new languague then go ahead what's stopping you.
Go visit your family- If you haven't been able to go and visit your family for a while then this can be the perfect time to do so and anyways valentines day is also a day to show your relatives some love since they are your family also. If your family lives out of state then you can go and travel to see them you can find good travel deals on Bing.com.

Take a page from your high school days- Just do a random prank call or a prank text to any of your guy friends it can be some that you rencently know or some that you have known since high school.
Netflix a tv show that you like the most- who says you cant watch tv on valentines day well you can spend it in your own way see some episodes of that famous tv show everyone is raving about.
Start reading that book uve been wanting to read- start or finish that book you have been holding off or you have been wanting to read but have not had the time to start it well here is your chance.
Reject romance movies and instead look at funny movies- You can also attend comedy shows go and just laugh your head off besides laughing is also a good excersice and its also good for your mind and reduces your stress levels.

Get organized- Now this is an entirely different idea from the others that I have shared with you but I think that it is still ok organize your things if you do this you will be surprised at how much mess you migh have cluttered in your room. Clean out your closet, take off any unnessesary contacts from your address book or put up those new pictures on your picture album all of these are great ways that can help take away some stress into your life.

Spoil yourself this valentines day- What a better way to spoil yourself than with the things that you love the most some of the things that you can do are go to the movies it does not matter if you go alone at least you will get to see your favorite movie or that hot guy actor you admire, get your nails done,enjoy an ice-cream sunday that is topped with your favortie things, order a mix of your favorite types of food or some that you would liek to try, get a massage or buy yourself a new outfit you will be happy you did in the end.

Dream Walk

I go walking every single day
down the same road to the same
path full of escapes to where
I can go when I am alone or when I
feel bored.
I call it not a regular simple
walk but instead a dream walk where
I find my future and see my dreams it is
where I find myself and who I want
to be known for.
My dream walk takes me to a dream
street where I notice new people
and places not known before it keeps me
calm taking me to another world and that's
how I want it to stay.
