Tammy's Disney Side

I am not the only person I know showing their Disney Side. A few of my friends have recently shown their Disney Side. In honor of Disney’s latest campaign, “Show Your Disney Side” and @Home Celebrations, I am showing a few other celebrations I have recently been a part of. You can show your at

This lady had a birthday this week. We celebrated in the office by doing a “Week of Birthday”. She got a small gift every day of the week.

On Monday she was given a simple roll of Mickey Mouse Duct Tape. {Have you checked out all the cool patterned Duct Tape available?} Along with the Duct Tape, I sent her this link to make your own Duct Tape Wallet.

She went home that night and made a Mickey Mouse Duct Tape Wallet. I have never seen someone so excited over a roll of tape!

In addition to Mickey Mouse party lights on Tuesday when Tammy came to work she found hanging above her cubical a bunch of Mickey Mouse Decorations. She was tickled to death! Tammy says the decorations will now stay up till 2022. That is the year she will retire.  And the year I will cry. Thank goodness that is eight years away and I don’t have to think about it now.

Wednesday we had to give her two days worth of presents because she decided to take a day off work. Besides Mickey Mouse the thing that she likes the best is Coca-Cola. So, what a better combination than a Mickey Mouse Tumbler with a 12 pack of Coke? She could not think of a better combination!

On our final day of celebrating her, she got a Mickey Mouse candy jar full of her third favorite thing in the world; dark chocolate:  Dark Chocolate M and M’s, Dark Chocolate Lindor Truffles, and Dark Chocolate Dove Promises.  If you ever want to see a happy coworker, fill her favorite candy jar up with her favorite guilty pleasure!

Happy Birthday, Tammy! I hope you have a wonderful year full of good surprises all year long!

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 …
