Come on baby, light my fire- recycled fire starters

Image

My favorite time of year is any time I get to sit by a crackling fire.  It’s one of my favorite parts of camping and if you put the words “bonfire” on an invitation I will almost certainly be present. There is just something so magical about the ambiance a fire creates and the moments that occur when you are under its flickering light. 

Once the holidays roll around there can be no doubt that it is time to build a fire and gather round for cups of homemade nog to share the year’s memories and stories.   When the time has come to strike that match, I have a wonderful fire-starter project made out of your old toilet paper rolls and dryer lint!

I have started to keep a little box by the dryer to collect the lint throughout the year and a little pail in my restroom to save the toilet paper rolls.  Simply fill the cardboard rolls with lint and stash near your fireplace.  

When needed, light the lint and you have a long-burning fire starter! These are great to stash in your camp box too!

My anthem for the #weekend -bring it on! #embracethesuck #mytrainercouldbeatupyourtrainer #suckitup #originalbadass Stunning #roses from my #love. Who knew when we met that one day in high school that 13 years later we would find each other again and walk down the aisle. The walk back was filled with some beautiful moments and some hard moments. But now that I found my way back to you, every moment that happens is better for you are in it. #happyanniversary #yearthree #marriage A #porch worthy of a lazy #summer now just to find the time. #nature #garden #flowers Stopped into the #paddy's in #Ashland to raise a glass of the good stuff to #Ireland tonight. And you know what it tastes like? #equality // #loveislove #gayrights The remains of a stressful day. I see a beet #kiss and #love from #sprout #hearts #everythingsgonnabealright especially when Drew at #alchemy is mixing egg white #cocktails and handing out bits of pickled and roasted #beets in #endive leaves with #bluecheese It's been so deliciously dreary in #Ashland #oregon the sky full of storm clouds and the earth wet with #rain. The #PNW is such a #magical place. #rainrainstay #nature A #Monday can't be bad when it starts off with a #glutenfree #pink frosted #donut right? These little beauties are getting #royal // #garden #flowers #nature #cottage Sometimes a fresh #pizza is what the #night needs #burrata #spring #herbs and home canned #tomatoes Oh thank goodness it's #Saturday now what to do with these #farm #fresh #eggs #brunch anyone?? If wishes were horses, beggars would ride:
If turnips were watches, I'd wear one by my side:  If, if's and and's were pots and pans, there would be no need for tinkers. 
For this #simple #DIY #wish in a jar #necklace head over to my #blog When you come home to this. A #friend, and #houseguest, who has made you #fromscratch #bluecorn #pancakes from our shared #favorite #restaurant in the world #hellsbackbonegril so many #memories of #utah #thewild and the best humans I ever met at #usf A real #macchiato being drunk by a real #man I just #love a #sundayfunday with my #mountainman especially when it starts with a visit to #casecoffee #feed the #breast nothing like #tacos to start the #weekend off right // #foodporn #glutenfree #taqueri #Oregon
