Work Update

 I am working on Universal templates and a special tool that can be used with them for easy storage. More information on that next week! I am working on making Christmas gifts for my family this year so I will be spending most of my time with that. I will keep adding to the site as I can but just like everyone else, I am really busy getting ready for the holidays.

Tuesday's Tips

Double Duty Salt and Pepper Shakers
If you do not use a sugar bowl because you do not add sugar to your coffee or tea, but you do use small amounts of sugar on cereal, toast or anything else, you can go get an odd salt or pepper shaker from a second hand store, (so that it does not match your salt and pepper shaker) and use it to store a small amount of sugar to sprinkle on buttered toast or on your breakfast cereal. This is what I have been doing for a few years now.

Cleaner Computer Desktop
Is your computer desktop cluttered with lots of icons?? Mine was until I made a new folder and dragged and dropped alot of my less frequently used shortcuts into the folder. Now if I need to go quickly to one of those programs, I can just open that folder and then click on the shortcut to the program itself. It is faster then going through start but it does require an extra click from the desktop itself. My dh loved this idea and wondered why I hadn't done it sooner. To make a new folder, just right click anywhere on your desk top then choose new, then choose folder. A folder will show up on your desktop. You can rename it by right clicking on it, choose rename, then type in the new name of your folder. I named mine, Shortcuts.
