Cricut Craft Idea: Clean/Dirty Magnetic Sign for the Dishwasher

Since we are all stuck at home on lock down due to the COVID-19, Corona Virus, we may as well make the best of it cleaning out drawers and closets, organizing, trying new recipes, painting, crafting, having high quality family time and generally getting all those household projects done that we never have time for. 

My project list is loooong! We'll see what I can accomplish in this unexpected furlough. I've been doing some serious cleaning and organizing in my house. I don't think it's ever been this clean! This is my usual motto.

Now, I'm finding that the smallest thing that looks a mess gets on my nerves. Like this sticky note. 
We have used this method for years to let everyone know the dishes are clean in the dishwasher. 

Well, no more!!! That little note is one of those items that is making me crazy!

It's time to craft a sign for the dishwasher indicating whether it's clean or dirty. Growing up, I remember a flower magnet on the dishwasher that said dirty on one side and clean on the other. Does anyone else remember that? I think it was green on one side and yellow on the other.

I have a new Cricut Maker that my husband bought me for my birthday and I have been having some fun creating precisely cut things like names for glassware, gift tags and stencils. I like precisely cut. Now I'm always looking for a Cricut Craft Idea!

My latest crafty project is a dirty/clean magnetic sign for the dishwasher shaped like a flower, sort of like what I remember. These ideas always hit me late at night. Sometimes, I need to write them down so I can stop thinking about the ideas and go back sleep.

I didn't have the exact supplies I wanted so I made due with what I had. Some 651 vinyl, not the exact colors I wanted, and magnets I scrounged up. I could have ordered more supplies from Amazon or Michael's but the idea hit me now so I'm running with it. 

I added some Amazon links to this post to help you get the crafting supplies you need delivered right to your door. When you use the links I provide for you, I earn a small amount at no cost to you. I truly thank you for using my links!
I really needed the right kind of magnet. A round magnet would look better. But, I'm thinking a self adhesive magnet sheet would work great. It could probably be cut in the flower shape and sandwiched between the vinyl. Or maybe the sign could be just the cut magnet with the clean on one side and dirty on the other.

I'm thinking of this as my prototype to work on and improve on!!! For some reason, the "Clean" side looks better that the "Dirty" side on my dishwasher magnet! 😂 It works though!

My nail color is Zoya Aire. It's one of my favorites! You can find Zoya Aire on Amazon.

Here's a closeup of my clean/ dirty magnetic sign for the dishwasher!

And that stupid sticky note when straight to the recycling bin! This may be a project you want to mess around with too.

Here is the flower image I used with my Cricut if you need this DIY crafting project to keep you busy. If you try it, post a pic to my facebook page. There is a facebook link to my page near the bottom of this post. I'd love to see your creation!

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
