Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Some Great Projects to Try and Martha Stewart Crafts

   Polymer balls can be quite beautiful.Make some Polymer Bouncy Balls 
 Fun project...

  Sand Paper Transfer
  This one is a cinch!! How about a transfer onto a
 T-shirt using sand paper??? Yup, easy peasy... a sandpaper technique printing that will keep anyone busy. Make from the $1 store, a T-shirt, 
 fine sand paper, crayons, fine sand paper, and an iron. After you color 
your design on the sandpaper [remember it will be reversed] flip it and
place it on your T-shirt and then put a piece of parchment paper or 
 paper towel over it and press iron on it for at least 30 seconds pressing
hard to set transfer. Left one edge slowly and make sure it has
transferred, Iron a little bit more to melt the crayon design. 
 After you are done place some paper towels over it again without
the sand paper and iron slowly and then toss it in the dryer for about 
20 minutes. When you launder it the 1st time wash lightly on low
speed alone. Enjoy! 

NOTE:  Don’t iron too much or you might notice wax soaking through
 the sandpaper backing and onto your iron.  Also, if you use paper 
rather than cardstock, I would recommend putting an old towel
 underneath the paper so melted wax doesn’t soak through onto 
your ironing board

 How about Frying Marbles???? they are so easy to make.

Get yourself some marbles and the easiest and best way is to bake them in the oven. Put your Be sure to use clear marbles (It's useless to use solid colored ones. 
You can't see the cracks on the inside.) in a pie pan. Bake them 
in a preheated 500 degree (Fahrenheit) oven for about 20 minutes. There's no 
need to go over 20 minutes, though it doesn't hurt them. I tried different times
 and any left in for over 20 minutes all look the same. Have a metal bowl with 
ice cold water ready. Remove your marbles and immediately dump them into the
 water. The marbles crack, you will google at them and so will all your friends!

This cool project would be perfect for Easter it is from
