Blogging Tips

If you are as new to blogs as I am, let me help you figure this one out. The cool thing about a blog is it allows you and I to comment about post made. In order to do that you have to sign in. There is a button in the top right corner that says SIGN IN. If you have a twitter, gmail, or yahoo email address this is the easiest thing in the world (come on, my momma did it)! You just log in with those user name and passwords. Once you have logged in, you can follow the blog. Even if you sign up to follow the blog, you can not leave a comment unless you are signed in.
I just want to say thanks for following my blog. I know a lot of you are reading it and providing me with lots of encouragement. I really need it and appreciate it!


  1. Wayne and I have fiddled with the commenting thing all night. I almost believe now in order to comment you have to have a gmail account. For those that can post, let me know what works for you.

  2. Yes I had to get a gmail account! I have never blogged in my life. So much for my plan to boycott blogging. See you tomorrow night.

  3. The other day I tried to sign in and it told me I had to have a gmail account. After you posted the directions, I logged on with the yahoo. If this posts then we know yahoo works.

  4. To the last person, I changed the settings to let anyone publish comments but it will only tell me that it was published Anonymously, as you can see above. So, I have no idea who posted it. The good news: anyone can now publish comments. The bad news: unless you include your name in the post, I will never know who it came from.

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
