Pick Your Plum Grab Box

I have been a registered "Plumster" for a few years now.

Are you a "Plumster"?

Pick Your Plum is a daily deal site; for women! Sometimes they have kids clothing. Next time they have hats or scraves. Or baking supplies. Or crafting supplies. They send me an email every single day and I love to open my mail and explore what is on sale!

A couple of times a year they sell grab boxes. They are the kind of system crashing, make your computer do funny things kinda sales. They are usually very limited and are on a first come first grab basis.  Pick Your Plum cleans out their warehouse and puts a ton of Plums in a box. The box is valued at $80.00 but sells for $30.00.

This past week I secured my very first grab box!! It was shipped promptly and it arrived faster than fast. I thought I would show you what came in my grab box.

 The box was a medium flat rate box.

 It was stuffed to the very top of the box!

Inside the box was full of treasures! There were four numbered hooks, three mini notebooks, a set of pink and silver dangle bracelets, ten rolls of colored thread,and  two mini chalkboards.

But wait! There is more!!!

Three office supplies (ruler, post it notes), LOTS of cupcake decorative wrappers, a turquoise infinity scarf, a grey Chevron pillow case, and a canvas wall organizer in cute polka-dots.

A decorative necklace, three cupcake wrappers, pink Chevron wrapping paper, two turquoise neck ties, and a pair of red lace leggings.

And finally; two rolls of decorative tape, three different pink stripped disposable water vases, four different colors and multiple snack boxes, and a small bag of DIY naked wooden tile pendants.

There you have it. My first Plum grab box.  I believe the next round of grab boxes will come after the new year.  If you get one, share yours with me!

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 …
