    I have had this in my 'to do' pile for AGES........we are talking years here. My plan was to see how the pattern worked up.......then use 'the window' to put my garden pics in and make another one.......well, as they say......."the best laid plans". My new computer won't load the OLD photoshop...

    BubbleWrap I am going to try this, this winter. I am currently using tote lids covered in foil for windows to block the heat, but I am not liking them so much now that I've been taking them up and down off the window. Going to try this for winter months for heat conservation. If anyone...

    We have been having MISERABLE weather here for at least a month. I cannot even remember the last dry day that we had. It feels like and looks like Fall except that the trees still have their leaves and the leaves haven't changed color. But it is enough to get a little down about. Yesterday...

    UGH I managed to misplace the receipt for the new windows we put in last summer. It makes a quite significant difference on taxes due to the credits. I put a call into the contractor hoping he can get me a copy. I have torn through everything looking! I can not believe this is not in my...
  8. Freebies It's from ADT, they give you a box to check if you want information and if they can call. I left them unchecked.
  9. Question and Answer
    I keep seeing the same ad over and over again from a local energy company that goes on and on about window film. Hopefully I am calling it the right thing, but it's the stuff that you put against a window and use a blow dryer to make a "seal". I am curious if this stuff actually works. The...
  10. Question and Answer
    Part of my attempt to live a simpler life is to make whatever I can (especially if it would save some $$). I just realized that I'm all of window cleaner. Could somebody tell me what I could use to make some up? Or is it cheaper to buy windex?

    Okay, I know that some of you inventive & resourceful ladies here have made them & made them inexpensively. I would love to hear from you and how you went about doing it. I have a HUGE picture window in our den (60 inches high & 120 inches wide) and I desperately need something to hang in it...

    This has been the most expensive week. I am not one to normally stress or worry over spending a few dollars here or there. I am actually the spender in my family - love to shop, buy things for my kids, take my kids places, etc.... But I swear, I dont want to spend another dime this week. Last...
  18. Quilting
    I'm thinking about making myself some window quilts to block the draft a bit. Has anyone made or used them? Do you like them? Any good links?? I only have 6 windows to do, so it shouldn't be too bad.
  19. Quilting
    I saw somewhere here about window quilts but cant find it so here is my question in a new thread. Are the window quilts made so that you can raise them up to let in the sun. If they are not made this way how do you get them up to let the sun in? I was thinking of making these for my front...
