Etceteras: Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

Homemade Fruit Fly Trap via homeworkGetting rid of fruit flies can be a problem. They hide, buzz around, annoy you and then hide again. You can try swatting at them but they’re hard to swat. I’ve tried different variations of fruit fly recipes over the years but they never worked for me. The fruit flies would seem interested in the different concoctions that I’d make but never be tempted enough to take a swan dive into the cup of liquid.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~116~

Hello everyone and happy Friday. We made it through the first week of school in our house. My son has embarked on his senior year of high school and let me tell you, it went by at warp speed. One minute you’re walking them into pre-school or kindergarten and the next – just like a movie on fast forward – it’s the last year and then he’ll be off to college. Can we have a group hug?

Thank you… and while we’re all hugging it out, here’s what I shared this week.



A big thank you to everyone who stopped by this week. Your visits, comments and shared links on The Inspiration Board are so appreciated. This week we had another Inspiration Board brimming with creativity. Here are the projects in the spotlight this week.

GOOD TASTE: Chicken Pita & Greek Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cooking Light, Sunset, and Real Simple magazines, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BTSatSafeway  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

Chicken Pita & Greek Yogurt Sauce via homework (1)Back to school time means quick and easy meal choices. Breakfast needs to be readily available for those frenzied mornings. Lunches need to be preplanned or even premade and ready to pack up. Dinners require menu planning and organized grocery shopping. I pretty much have those three meals under control during the school year. But I tend to fall short on after school and after sports snacks. But this year, I’m vowing to do better.
