How to Can Pineapple

Canning is one of those arts that not many people know how to do. I have been canning for years now and I have learned that most things that I can taste way better then the same item that you can get from the grocery store in a can. One of those things is canned pineapple. Once you start you won't be able to stop and it is so easy that really anyone can do it!

DIY Wainscoting

I knew when we build our house that I wanted to do something with my walls. I also new that I wanted it to be something different. It seemed that everyone was doing the same things and I wanted something different. I don't really like to follow the crowd. When I saw a picture of this wainscoting I was sold. I loved everything about it. I have it on two walls so far in my house and I have plans to put it up on four more.

If you can use a saw and make 45 degree cuts then you can do this!
