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 …

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks!

Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here. 

Post edit:
So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!

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.....
