My first blog

There are times when I'm at home and think of something that I want to share.  But, I don't know who to share it with; who will really care.  Or, it's late at night and I don't want to disturb my friends while they're sleeping.  And, I'm worried that if I keep posting over and over on Facebook that everyone will get tired of me and defriend me.  Then, it hit me.  That's what a blog is for.  I can write my random thoughts and if you choose, you can read them.  If you don't, I've at least put my thoughts somewhere besides just inside my head.  I kinda wish I did this when my kids were younger and would say some pretty crazy things.  Maybe, I'll go back and share some of those memories sometime.  Like when we had to explain to Marshall that in this family, we don't put bagels in socks.  Anyway, I'm not sure how often I'll remember to update this but it's nice to know I can.


  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! I love it! You don't have to post often but I find it helpful to try to post a few times a week. You've read my blog (hopefully) so you know sometimes it is just pictures.

    The best thing to do to grow your readership is post on other people's blogs. You can also import some of your older stuff from The Jett Set website you had ages ago.

Party Decorations (Eagle Court of Honor) on the Cheap

These will be centerpieces on the tables at my Son's Eagle Court of Honor *Update:  See how I re-used these same cans for a patriotic luncheon.   The other night I was surfing around on the t.v. and ended up watching "Extreme Cheapskates."  I found myself thinking, "Ohhh... what amateurs!"  But, I couldn't tell anyone.  I mean I didn't want anyone to know how "cheap" I actually am. I really think they set some people up on that show.  I mean seriously?!?  You share a toothbrush to save money?  Buy 2 toothbrushes and each will last twice as long, same with the deodorant.  Yuck! Anyway, there was this lady only wanting to spend $50 on her 10 year old son's birthday.  Since I'm always looking for inexpensive ways to celebrate, I kept watching.  What?!?!  She had his birthday party at a retirement home for $30?!?!  What about having it at your house or the park for free, hello people?  Instead of the Elvis entertainer (who I'

DIY Jewelry Organization

I love my jewelry and use it as art on my wall.  It helps me to remember what I have and makes getting dressed easier and quicker.  Here is how I organize and hold my Earrings, Necklaces, and Brooches. Earring Holder A few years ago, while visiting my sister, I noticed her earring holder.  She said she bought it from "a girl who make them."  A few months later, I was needing birthday gifts for some girlfriends so I tried to remember what I saw at my sister's house and re-created it. Supplies: window screening from the hardware store - it comes in big rolls but you only need a little dowel rod 4 wooden dowel rod balls ribbon hot glue paint First, cut your dowel rod into 2 12 inch pieces, then take your dowel rods and balls and paint them whatever color you like.  I spray painted mine silver.  Then you need to cut your screening (use big scissors) to 12 inches by 18 inches.  On the 12 inch side, fold down about 1 inch and glue down with the hot glue.  Do th
