    July 22, 2011 by barbara

    I use lemons very often for my salad dinner.  While lemon is filled with lots of goodness, I do not enjoy squeezing it.   I get the juice everywhere and then I would have to pick out the pips.  Thank God for this Lemon Squeezer which I came upon yesterday.  A very useful tool for the kitchen.  It is available at Gnr8.biz. With this handy Lemon Squeezer, you can squeeze the lemon without squirting juice and pips everywhere.

  10. Best Place To Buy Paper Bags

    June 27, 2011 by barbara

    If you don’t know already, I am into crafts right now.  More like paper craft.  My all-time favourite is to wrapping presents with brown paper or kraft paper.   There are so much we can do with kraft paper wrappers.  They look great with flower toppers, twines, paper flowers and many more. Just last Christmas, I made paper bags made from kraft papers for my friends’ presents instead of wrapping them with the usual wrapping papers.  I decorated the bags with cut-out initials of my friends’ names from pages of magazines. Then I sealed the bags with  a ‘ribbon on top.  My friends loved the packaging idea.  Are you into paper crafts too?  Well, if you are then you may want to check out PaperMart.com.  This craft supplies store has been in business for over 90 years.   They are the largest discount packaging company in the United States.  Paper Mart has a huge selection of over 10 million boxes and 100 million bags.  At their website, you can find plastic, tubes, cans, jars, metal containers, restaurant supplies, all kinds of paper and many more.  They have a group of highly trained and experienced employees to provide the best service.  So, whether you are looking for paper bags, favor boxes or organza bags for your gift-wrapping or wedding, Paper Mart has them all.
