  1. Homesteading and gardening
    This might be a project people would like. I wanted a simple border fence for my small yard and had some of those landscape timbers just laying around and a customer gave me some more so I made a simple hitching post fence to go in front of the cabin. It is designed for looks but could be...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We are just a couple of weeks into our project on our new house. We are finishing the rest of the basement and doing painting before we move in. We had a budget of $25K for EVERYTHING. Well, we are already up to $33,800. How did we get so far off? I can't stop thinking about how it's all...
  3. General Chat
    My 8 year old has to create a box and fill it with 10 items relating to the life of President James Madison. So far we have thought of: * something representing tobacco since he lived on a tabacco plantation * Something relating to Univ of Virginia * copy of the Bill of Rights. Only 7 more...
  4. Home and family challenges
    Twelve months, twelve projects. I noticed, immediately pre-Christmas (which is when I always notice, because it is too late to do it before company arrives) all the projects around the house that I *meant* to do before the end of the year. While it is still fresh in my mind, I am making my list...
  5. Question and Answer
    Over Thanksgiving, my mom asked for a special gift for her birthday (coming up December 11th). She asked my sisters and I to complete 69 Random Acts of Kindness before her 69th birthday. She got the idea from a friend of hers who saw this blog: Blog Archive How I Celebrated My Birthday (aka...
  6. Adoption
    I am starting the process of getting a passport. I went to the courthouse to apply and they told me that I needed a birth certificate that showed my mother and father's names. Ok, here is the problem: The only certificate that I have of my birth was issued approx. 4 years after I was born...

    They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery... so The 12/12/12 project is officially up and running!!! As of now my goal is to have all of my consumer credit and debt paid off by 12/12/12. For me this translates into paying off what currently stands at $13,401.85 of debt, from 2...
  8. DIY
    Our shed in back has seen better days. If we stay here, we'll probably end up replacing it at some point. However, today I screwed back on a panel of the sheet steel wall that blew out over the winter, removed both doors from the front (one had already been off the slider for some time) and...
  9. Leisure & Media Arts
    I recently started a small non fiction readers group at a local library with a friend of mine, and The Happiness Project was our first selection. I am almost finished reading. Has anyone here read it? Any thoughts?
  10. Pets
    I have wanted a dog room for quite some time and finally took the plunge to do it. This is a spare bedroom that I've given to the dogs. I am posting purely for bragging purposes. I'll just admit that now. *grin* As a small disclaimer, NO money was spent on this project, another fact that...
  11. Dave Ramsey
    We like the sound of 11/11/11 as a date to pay off all our personal debt (will still have a mortgage). It will be a stretch as we worked out a current snowball amount which has us debt free by early 2012 but hey what the heck, we're in the mood for getting rid of this debt once and for all so...
  12. General Chat
    Times are tough all over. So many people are having difficulty making ends meet. Heck, I'm having a very rough time myself. Somehow, though, the Lord has always blessed us with enough to eat and with shelter. It's after Christmas now and at the food bank the cupboards are nearly bare again...
  13. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    I wanted to post this as this site has some great paper craft projects how tos for free. https://www.castleintheair.biz/shoppe/?b=10&k=10&c=237 Fun stuff that won't break the budget. Have fun. Jenny;)
  14. Needle Arts
    Im sure most of you know about it but for those who dont and love to make afghans- there is a wonderful charity called "project Linus" (after linus from the peanuts who loves his blankie) they ask you to donate handmade blankets to them. It is a nationwide organization. I believe they also take...

  16. DIY
    I bought this house in April. I need to fix a small section of the workshed roof which is an added structure attached to the outside wall of my house. The walls also need to be replaced because along the bottom where the wood meets the concrete, it is water damaged. I was thinking I would...
  17. Sewing
    ~What do you usually do when your projects fails? Do you immediately fix it, set it aside for another day, or scrap it altogether? I'm a "wing it" kind of sewer so I probably have more fails than most people. 50% of the time I immediately fix the project. The other half is set aside for...

    I like some of this girl's stuff and this project in particular caught my eye! think I might have to try it out if I do I'll totally post the results!
  19. Green Living
    Around our house, we've become obsessed with all things dirty apparently. The husband and I are looking into composting (he's got the green thumb--I just kill everything). We're trying to read up on the subject so that we can get our garden really growing this year and the next year and the...
  20. Sewing
    Dd went to a Girl Scout sewing class, today, where they used the machines to create a skirt that could double as a tank top. I'm SO proud of her! (And yes, she is wearing it over her bathing suit...despite the snow, my kids have declared this a beach day in the house!)
