The BlogFrog

Hey everyone! I know you see all those great little widgets on my sidebar that say BlogFrog. Well let me just tell you a little bit about that. BlogFrog is a way to make your blog more social. Many of you may have joined my community or added a widget to your own blog and that is really great. It has helped to increase the number of BlogFrog members to over 13,000. This is very exciting because it is a way to get more traffic to your blog and help to better network.
A few weeks ago I was asked to become a community leader with the BlogFrog and as such have been doing a few things over the last 4-5 weeks to help me become a better blogger and to use many of the great aspects of the BlogFrog. For this week I would like you all to come on a little journey with me. I have started a discussion in my Forum called "Getting to Know You". It will only take you a minute to jump on over there and tell me a few things about you as my readers. Just click here to get started.
Thanks for participating!

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot.  It's a gift I know. I digress.

Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you.

All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great.
You will need:
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide
1 drop dish soap
Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned..... You…
