A Blogging Tip?

I know you don't normally get these from me but I am trying to branch out a little in the new year so here goes.  My friend Toni from The Happy Housewife shared this link with me and other premium blogfrog members. She has also teamed up with some other fabulous bloggers and formed this network I'm Going to Savvy Blogging 
to help give tips to all bloggers.  If you are on twitter you can see their tips by following this #savvyblogging.


So before you go hopping around to all those links....here are some of my goals for blogging in the new year.
Clearly Define my Purpose as a Blogger.  Really I am a hobby blogger but thanks to blogfrog and many others I have started to be much more than that.  My goal is to find what I blog about that my readers love and really stay focused on those areas.


Work on my BlogFrog Community.  This is such a fantastic way to increase reader interaction and I feel like it is a way for me to really get to know those that read my blog and find out what we have in common so we can become a blogging network together.


Set computer time LIMITS!  This is something I really need to work on.  I am guilty of sitting in front of the computer for hours.  Although it is not always a waste of time it interferes with the rest of my life so I am really going to work on my blogging priorities, my computer time and my overall time management.  
That is a big one so I am going to stop there and go work on my schedule.

When you get that computer time limit thing worked out, will you let me know how you did it?! LOL! My house is a pigsty right now...
AMEN on the blogging time limits. I need to institute some of that myself. Hubby used to work overnights, so I had enough time to myself for my hobby, but now that he's back working on days, I don't have the time! I need an egg-timer or something!

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…
