It's time once again to celebrate our wonderous Earth. Though Earth Day began as a grass-roots movement 38 years ago to educate people about pollution, conservation and to draw the government's attention, it has changed over the years. Today, we all have concerns like climate change and diminishing resources fresh on our minds.It seems like everyone's making some small changes, or just being a little more aware. I've made a consious effort to buy more organic food, switching my light bulbs to compact florescents (CFLs), and turning off unused electronics. But I'd like to do more this Earth Day, so I've been searching for ideas. Here are some of the best one's I've found... a few of them utilize our Lifetime Products: 1- Plant a tree in your back yard: Besides being a fun activity for... More

Scrapbooking for 3 days straight may sound like a weird form of torture... but even after the paper cuts, late nights, and reeeeally early mornings, I look forward to it twice a year. My family’s crazy little tradition is called "Scrapbook Weekend".

Wheelbarrows make any yard and garden project easier
Anyone whos done their share of yard work or gardening knows that short of a good, sharp shovel, nothing beats a good, strong wheel barrow. According to Wikipedia, wheelbarrows are a small hand-propelled vehicle, usually with just one wheel, designed to be pushed and guided by a single person using two handles to the rear . It is designed to distribute the weight of its load between the wheel and the operator so enabling the convenient carriage of heavier and bulkier loads than would be possible were the weight carried entirely by the operator. The old design had one wheel up-front and an awkward dump pivot both of which made the old models prone to tipping. Lifetime Products thought youd suffered with the old kind of wheelbarrows long enough and set about revolutionizing the way you do yard work. Lifetimes wheelbarrow...
