This site has tons of great stuff for any craft project. I just listed my Etsy shop there since I am selling lots of vintage buttons and beads that could be used for craft projects. Destash listings are coming up next since I have a box full of vintage jewelry that is broken or just too beat up to sell to wear.

Keeping Guacamole Green

The Guacamole Test: Guacamole Topped with Water
This idea came from The Kitchn and is a little bit of kitchen genius. Here’s how it works: Start by putting your freshly made guacamole in a container with a tight-fitting lid then push the guacamole down into the container to get rid of any air pockets. Next, pour 1/2 inch of lukewarm water on top, seal the container, and pop it in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat the guacamole, pour out the water and stir the guacamole to incorporate any surface moisture. That’s it. My guacamole was still bright and green after a full 24 hours, but the Kitchn reports this method keeps your guac good to go for three days.
