Stop That Pain!!

As a crafter, have you ever gotten a sore shoulder from repetitive motions or an achy back from sitting for hours at an all-day scrapbook crop?  Yep, I am guilty!  Or maybe you suffer from arthritis, joint pain or other minor aches that make it impossible to enjoy your favorite activities and hobbies.  We have found an incredible topical pain reliever for you called Stopain!!


1 of every 5 people in the U.S. suffers from some type of arthritis and it affects 3 times as many women as men.  May is National Arthritis Awareness Month and Stopain is an Arthritis Foundation sponsor, donating a portion of the proceeds for every product sold in 2011 (with a minimum contribution of $25,000). We love this!


Stopain comes in four different formulations; Spray, Extra-Strength Spray, Roll-On, and Gel.  We were thrilled to be able to try the Extra-Strength Spray.  Seriously, if you have ever used a messy topical pain reliever a spray is very intriguing! 


Stopain Cold 4 oz. Spray Extra Strength Features:
*No Drip
*No Stain
*Non-Greasy
*Light Scent (We found this to be strong at first but disappears rather quickly.)
*Hands-Free Application
*Sprays at Any Angle
*Contains 8% Menthol (Recognized by the FDA as an analgesic!)
*Enhanced with Glucosamine and MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane) for joint health and mobility.

I suffer (suffer? sounds so horrible and old! hmmm..) from Thyroid Disease which gives me muscle and joint pain and my husband has a bad back with a herniated disk and a touch of arthritis.  Oh, the joys of advancing age!  We both found a pleasant temporary relief with Stopain.  We also both are quite crafty and creative people so it's great to have a quick solution to the aches and pains that stop us from working on our projects.  Stopain is available nationally in pharmacies, drug and discount stores as well as at www.stopain.com.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
