BIZ for the Holidays and Getting Ready for Christmas

**This is a sponsored post** Hey everyone! I'm excited to be back and share with you some ideas for Holiday prep. It's been a whirlwind the last few months, especially with work and my photography business.  So anywho, I haven't even put up my tree yet :( While I was cleaning out some things from my garage, I noticed I had some very pretty white tablecloths that had yellowed over time. I wanted to use them to set my holiday table.  I almost threw them out until I remembered I could use BIZ to whiten them. I brought them inside and filled my washing machine with hot water.  I poured in about half a cup of BIZ Stainfighter and threw in the table cloths. I let them soak for about 30 minutes then ran them through a regular cycle.  They came out so white and clean!  I'm so happy I remembered I had BIZ and didn't throw them out.  BIZ is the stain fighting, whitening solution for all your laundry needs.  You can find more ideas on how t

This is a sponsored post As you may already know, I am a photographer on my off days.  I do a lot of family photography and this often involves small children, which many times requires me to kneel down on gravel, grass, etc. Needless to say my jeans take quite a beating. (Thank goodness for the torn jeans craze right?) To get those tough stains out, I just put a little bit of Biz stain fighter on the grass stain, rub it in a bit, and let it soak for about 5-10 minutes. I then run it through the wash with Biz as the detergent and voila!  The stain is gone! I recently had to do this with a favorite t shirt I splattered with spaghetti sauce. AGH! I hadn't realized it until I got home and I thought for sure the shirt was ruined.  Nope, I did the same thing, dab, rub, sit and wash it as usual. T shirt is as good as new. Now you know that those greasy stains are harder to get out. With Biz stain fighter detergent it's as easy as 1-2-3. I highly recom

Entry Bench Transformation with Milk Paint

Hello friends: It's been awhile :) I've been so busy with life and work. Well you know how that goes. I have been meaning to share with y'all this really cute project I finished, way back in the Spring. Yikes. I wanted to put a cute little bench of some sort right outside our front door of the apartment. It's not the brightest spot but I thought I could liven it up a bit with something.  I got this little bench on one of the Facebook garage sales.  Then the good folks from The Real Milk Paint Company graciously offered me a couple of samples! Yay! I knew I wanted a fun color so I picked the gorgeous Beach Glass.  It's a pretty blue that would add a nice punch of color to my drab entry.  Milk paint is a really good paint to use for those projects where you want a nice distressed look or you can do several coats to make it look more "polished". The choice is yours. Plus because it's milk paint it doesn't have that awful paint smell or
