How to remove labels from a jar

I know if you look all over the Internet there's this and that, use this soak this, use lighter fluid.. etc.. all great but since i can only speak about what i used i thought i share.



what you will need



Tea kettle

wooden clothes pin

water

rubbing alcohol if needed





here is what i did. I took the water and filled up the tea kettle and let it boil. Once it was boiling it was time to work. you know that little hole that the steam comes out that is going to be your tool to help take it off.



Warning: please be careful water is very hot and can burn



take the clothes pin grab the end of the label and allow a burst of stem to hit the label to and start pulling gently. The stem will loosen the glue and allow the labels to come off easily. and there you of the label is off. but if for some odd reason the glue is still on there.. use the edge of the clip and push it off ( if that make since) . but if you take it slow you will have very little or no glue left on the jar.



I Had to do this on plastic jars with the product still in it so i wanted to make sure that it was kept safe, clean and didn't compromise the integrity of the product.





hope this help you. if there is any questions feel free and ask.

is it ever ok to give up??? repost

So I was out this weekend and taking to a lady that was a group outing, and she was very talented . and we were talking and she mentioned that sometimes she want to give up cause shes not getting the sales she need to keep it going, and then she get sales not much and then get praises from the customers and thats why she does it because people love the work. and we keep on talking. I completely understand what she means. I too have my days of wanting to give up, not continue, then i make a couple of sales. I guess god is like -I gave you this, use it.. your not giving up till i tell you too. So I remember that i posted a blog a while back about is it ok to ever give up. i wanted to repost it.


Is it ever ok to just give up???
Is it ever OK to just give up? That's a question that i ask myself every day. Should i just give up being a sahm? Should i give up trying to be build my business? Should i give up being me? NO NEVER... the whole point of life is to grow and succeed. To me even if its a micro mini step in the positive is a Big step to success, One step to my goal, One more reason not to give up.Things to remember for not give up.- You are you! good, bad ,what ever. Love yourself and love life even in the time of sorrow.- Know that there is always someone in your corner. May not be financially but someone is there.- Prays are only a word, a key, a call away. Sometime we may need a pray to keep us going. That's OK, as long as you don't give up.-Last but not lease, You have a dream, a goal, a talent, Don't let it go to waste.If anyone can learn anything from me NEVER GIVE UP!!!!

Every day is a chance

every day is a chance for me to be the change, it starts with me. even with no money i can help. help by holding a door, help a lady check out, share coupons with a stanger, offer my skills for someone that need it. If i have and i can share i will. Only if more people can do that. I saw a guy not even willing to help a lady helping who pushing a lady in a wheel chair uhhh why couldnt he.. i helped her with two kids one on the hip other to the side. shes like as many times as i have taken them to the doctor no one has offered to help me except the nurses.. you are very nice. I didnt do it for a thanks just to make things easier on her. The small things make a big diffrence.
