A Great Way to Shave a Few Dollars

It’s no secret: most guys are creatures of habit, we don’t like change… So, when it comes to shaving, if we find a good razor we hold on to it for as long as we can. There’s nothing like a quality razor blade that gives you a smooth finish with no nicks or cuts. But name brand razors and their cartridges are so expensive and what if your razor blade is out of stock when you go to the store? Sure disposable razors are fine in a pinch but, personally, they are not a long-term option. Thankfully, there is another… […]

Gift Wrapping

One of my favourite parts of going to a wedding is the gift and how I wrap it. I have done gift baskets to using a boa as stuffing around the gift. I know that typically the presentation gets destroyed within minutes but I still love doing it. Plus I like having the pretty present in the pile. And who knows, maybe when I get married I will take pictures and put them in an album of all the pretty wrapped gifts. So at my latest wedding I had a really great idea for wrapping my gift. I documented it […]

Easy Baked Perogies and Vegetables

So here is an easy recipe that I did today. I was going to make fried perogies, when I found this suggestion on the back of my Cheemo Perogies.

Define my Creative Terms

My line of art is photography. I am in no way a professional but I really enjoy it. Overall though I appreciate all arts. I appreciate artists that make custom jewelry that sells on the street to the greats like Leonardo da Vinci. I think that everyone one has the potential for being creative and being artistic. Even if it’s only a stick figure or sticking your right foot in and shaking it all about. You have to use your wonderful human brain (Right/Left brain and synapses) to do those things. I have been going to Color Me Mine a […]
