200th Post

These apples equal 200 calories. But I am offering something that is completely calorie free! "My 200th post giveaway!"

So I totally just skipped over my 200th post like it was NOTHING!! Hello!
And because I also spaced my 100th post I am going to do a 200th post (okay 201th post give away)

I dont' have a picture of it yet but I promise it will include hand made goodies from Close To My Heart (made by ME of course) and I am certain that it will contain some pampering items and a gift card to Target.

So to be entered once leave a comment here! For a bonus entry go here and start a discussion you think others might want to comment on!

You must live in the continental US because shipping will break me!! Best of luck!

This giveaway will be closed on Wednesday September 30th! So comment NOW!!!!

These are some of the cards I will be giving away. They come in bunches of 4 or 5 so YOU have more to give away!

And wishing you many more blog entries yet to come!

I happily forfeit my entry in your giveaway because I am commenting from Down Under and I know the postage would be astronomical. I will look forward to checking back to see who the lucky winner is later in the week.

I am about to post a milestone number of blog entries myself tomorrow. I never thought blogging would be so addictive. Have a great weekend.

It's been years since we've seen one another and I'm glad we found each other again, at least in the cyber world.

Thanks for your blog, it has allowed me to catch up with you and your family (and aren't they gorgeous!)

Congrats on your 200th blog! Keep it up because although we probably live about a mile from each other now, it seems that's the way I find out about what's going on.

Let's get together for lunch!

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.....

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
