Need a one of a kind gift? For a friends wedding I found an antique postcard of the hotel where they are getting married. I took the postcard to a print shop and had them blow it up. Then had it matted and framed. It turned out beautifully. I love it, I hope they do! This would be a great gift for a friend you used to vacation with when you were kids, or an anniversary, or graduation.

Production today, always a fun day. Coming up on Mrs. FIXIT you'll get some great alternative uses for laundry baskets and muffin tins, an important safety check on your dryer and some holiday ideas. If Mrs. FIXIT isn't on in your local market, call your favorite television station and tell them you'd like to see it. They can check us out at http://www.mrsfixit.com/! It's just that simple!
I chipped my favorite coffee mug this morning. I didn’t want to toss it, it was a gift and I do love it, so I stuck it on my desk for pens and pencils. As I was looking at it, I got thinking about the rest of the set. So I ran downstairs and grabbed the sugar and creamer set and the napkin holder. I lined them all up on the desk and now I the mug for pens and pencils, the cream pitcher has all of my paperclips, the sugar bowl has a roll of stamps and the napkin holder has the bills, my checkbook and outgoing mail! Love it – although I don’t know what I’ll do the next time I need the creamer and sugar….

The faucet in my son’s bathroom is getting erratic. If this happens in your house, the fix is super simple! Pull up the stopper so nothing can slip down the drain, and then unscrew the aerator, the piece that water comes out of. Flip it over and rinse it out. The erratic water flow is caused by sediment buildup in the screen on this piece. Clean it out – put it back and you’re set to go!

Have you ever seen those bed benches? You know you take the head and footboards from an old bench and turn them into a bench for the porch or entryway. I have one I’m working on, I think it’s going to be really cute – check back for pictures! I wonder if a body pillow would be a good size for the seat cushion?
Antibacterial hand wipes are way less expensive than antibacterial cleaning wipes and you get more in a package – why is that? I’m now using the hand wipes for car handles, steering wheels, doorknobs and phones. Saving $$ - gotta love it!

A friend of mine had a great idea for remembering birthdays and anniversaries. She put the month as the heading and then all important dates under it for each month. She printed the list and hung it next to the calendar. This way you don’t have to write the dates into the calendar every year and you not only have a reference for each month, you can see what’s coming up in the next month!
