I've known for a long time that the chemicals in so many consumable products can be irritating and even dangerous. I recently found this article on baby wipes.
Consumers just assume that if it's on the grocery store shelf it must be safe. Not So!! Be informed!!
Baby wipes may cause some kids to develop itchy, scaly, red rashes, a new study shows.
Until now, there haven’t been any reports of allergic reactions to moist wipes in kids in the United States, researchers noted in the study published Monday in Pediatrics. But that may be because reactions have been mistaken for other conditions, such as eczema, impetigo, and psoriasis.
“I think it may be more common than people realize,” said study coauthor Dr. Mary Wu Chang, an associate professor of dermatology and pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.
Chang reported on six children who had developed mysterious rashes and came to the UConn Health Center for help.
The first, an 8-year-old girl, showed up with an angry red rash around her mouth and on her buttocks. She had initially been treated with antibiotics and steroids. Each time she was treated she improved somewhat, but the rash always came back.
I was commissioned to make ornaments for my company's logo's and decided to make some 3D.
It is a bit time consuming but in doing these I found that this open's up endless possibilities!
Here are a few of the logos:
I took it a step further and made a personalized ornament. I searched online for a "house", cut it out, cut out the windows and put family member photos in the windows. Use Foam Adhesive Squares over a duplicate of the photo for that 3D effect. I used Snow-Tex for the fake snow and Confetti Party Ice to sprinkle on the snow for that shimmer. The possibilities for decorating are endless. Choose your background.
From these came this 6 inch acrylic ornament.
This is the back of the family photo half.
This was the background. I cut out more trees to decorate. You can pick anything for the background.
The large house just went over top the log cabin. Take time sizing it under the ornament half.
I've always loved nuts. All kinds of nuts. I remember my mom buying the big bags of mixed nuts in the shells for the holidays.
We'd sit with the bowl on our laps cracking away and picking the tasty meat out of every crevice and savoring the flavors. Little did we know mom knew best!
Just yesterday, a study found regular nut eaters were less likely to die of cancer or heart disease — in fact,
were less likely to die of any cause — during a 30-year Harvard study. You can read the entire study at the New England Journal of Medicine
Now we already know nuts have been called heart-healthy but I think this just shows how eating foods in their natural state is so beneficial to our health. Making small changes can make such a difference in your life!
What stops choices, Fear. Why? The possibility of making a mistake. How do you learn to make less mistakes, make more mistakes. Anyone can pick the winning horse, after the horse race has been run. Choices open up opportunities, opportunities exist in every moment of every day, ONLY if you think that way. Change is how you get from where you are now, to where you want to be. Choose Happiness and fulfillment.
You may be thinking, Can I?
How will I?
Am I smart enough?
Am I worthy?
Am I strong enough?
“Strong people make as many
mistakes as weak people. Difference
is that strong people admit their mistakes,
laugh at them, learn from them.
That is how they become strong.” - Richard Needham
Be your biggest fan. Cheer yourself on.
Don't be the one pointing out faults
and poor decisions.
Learn from them and implement new ways.
This summer (2013) my daughter and I went to a meet and greet! We met Henry Winkler! "The Fonz"!
It was really exciting and I was thoroughly STAR STRUCK when I met him.
He was so kind and soft spoken. It was just so "neat" to meet him. I felt like I knew him because he was in our home every week on "Happy Days". And I told him this. He said, "Well for sure we do know each other!"
Here is my memory. I think he still looks the same...even if he dyed his hair! LOL
