I Forget What I Forgot

If you’re like me, you forget a lot of things. Once you remember, you eventually forget what you’ve forgotten.

If you’re having these sort of problems you can try these few things.

1. Write it down, now! You can take a piece of paper and attach it to your wall calendar or stick it in your journal, just make sure everything stays in the same place. When you remember something you’ve forgotten or have lost. Don’t be lazy and think you’ll remember it this time. The sooner your write it down the better.

2. Write down the location. When you find a lost item or whatever item and you’re like me and stick it in a “safe place” and so sure you’ll remember…write down on a list these items and where you end up placing them. That way later on, you can go to your list and find that item that you can’t seem to remember.

3. Designate! When you find something you’ve lost, put it in a certain container that is designated for the items you’re found and don’t want to lose again. That way when you’re trying to find wherever your new “safe place” is, it’ll just be this one spot. It’ll also help reduce clutter and keep you from putting random things places and never being about to find them again.

4. Become uncluttered! Go through your belongings thoroughly at least once a year to get rid of access stuff and to help you possibly find all the items you’ve been looking for.

 

I wouldn’t recommend trying to find your lost items or thoughts when you’re stressed or going through a rough time. If you can calm your nerves before ravaging through your house, you might be able to think clearly to maybe remember something. Just breath.

DIY: Valentine Heart Crayons

Whether it’s for your child or your lover that is a child at heart, you can make these cute heart crayons right at home and rather easy if you ask me!

What You Will Need:

– Any sized pot with an inch of water

– Old crayons (unwrapped and preferably in Valentine colors )

– Empty tin

– Heart shaped candy mold

– Knife

– Pliers (preferably needle-nosed)

– Pot Holder

– A Valentine baggie or anything Valentine themed to put your crayons into

1.  Set your pot with water onto the stove and turn it up to a medium boil. While you’re waiting for the pot to boil, use the knife to cut your unwrapped used crayons into small pieces (this will make it easier for melting).

2. Once your pot has come to a boil, put your crayon pieces into the tin. Now, while using your pliers to hold the tin, put the tin in the pot and hold it in the water (or as close as you can get to it) but keep it away from the bottom of the pan.

3. Once the crayons start melting swirl the tin around to mix it up a bit more to help them melt. Once your crayons have melted, use your pot holder to hold the tin and pour the melted crayons into the heart candy mold. Be careful not to over flow the mold.

4. Very carefully, put the mold in the freezer where it can lay flat and not spill out. Let it set for at least 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, pop your crayons out of the mold and put them into your Valentine baggies and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this small how-to and have lovely Valentine’s Day!
