If you have children, then you have seen the movie Frozen at least 17 times by now. If you are like me then you don’t mind. I’m not ashamed to admit that I cried at least three different times in the movie theater the first time we saw it. Since then our home has been inundated with Elsa & Anna. I’m still not sure why Elsa seems to get all the attention, however, when Anna is the sister that saves the day. I myself am a younger sister, you can tell?


A few weeks ago a reader asked about what to do if her paint brush had a ton of paint left on it but she was done for the day. I told her what I do – wash it anyway. Some of you, however, suggested something much more interesting & cost effective. Freeze it. I was told that one could put the paint brush in a baggie and put it in the freezer until the next time they are ready to use it. I guess the idea is that once it thaws it will be wet and ready to use with the excess paint.


Sounds clever to me! Let me know if it works for you all. If you happen to forget or don’t have a baggie or don’t have the energy to do this extra step. It’s okay. Wash you brush as you normally would and “let it go.”
