Flipper Tip: What if you don't know what it is?

If you can't figure out what something is.  Say you run across a unique tool but you have no idea what it is called.  If it has a patent number on it you can do a patent number search on the item and it will tell you exactly what it is.

You can also try to do a google image search on the item.  Sometimes in more common items that are odd, you will have luck with that too.

Flipper Tip - Puerto Rico

I had someone in line at the post office ask me about a package I was shipping off to Puerto Rico.  It got me thinking that others might not know that Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth and is a part of the United States. Shipping there is like shipping to a domestic destination. Also, you should ship using the post office, even for larger items, as the UPS and FedEx cost will be extremely high. No customs forms are necessary.

Graduation Party Decorations

My middle child has graduated high school.  She is a Starbucks addict so we decided to add some Starbucks personality into her graduation party.

I purchased bakery-made cupcakes.  Half were vanilla and half were chocolate and all had white frosting.

I made cupcake wrappers from white cardstock and glued starbucks logos on them to look like tiny frappuccinos.

I drizzled the tops with chocolate and caramel syrups.  I also cut up some green straws to add the finishing touch.

For decorations around the house, I exploded a crepe paper bomb. ;)  I wish I would've taken pics of all the blue and white balloons!
