5 Question Friday ~ 4/8/2011

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?  Probably my attitude.  I hate that it is sooooo hard to change sometimes.  Seriously, how many times do I have to promise myself I wont procrastinate or hold a grudge?  It gets very redundant.

2. Write about a time when you got lost.  Well… I can get lost in a paper bag {walking or driving}…  I prefer to call it exploring.  Being in the middle of nowhere there are lots of back roads, and some of them don’t go where you ‘think’ they should go.  I spent 45 minutes taking a ‘short-cut’ to come out a lot closer to home than the store I was trying to get to.  Saw some very pretty places along the way though, LOL.

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?  How about both?  There are some awesome vacation spots in Africa where technically you are camping, but… it is much more like a resort.  I love camping, and I like luxury so it is a hard choice.  There are plenty of beautiful spots to see that you can’t get a hotel near, and I certainly don’t want to miss them because there isn’t a hotel close.

4. Have you donated blood?  I donated blood all the time in college, but then after moving to Texas I started having iron issues.  So I haven’t donated in the last couple years.  Something about making the trip the blood bank, then having your blood bounce to the top after answering their twenty-million questions makes it hard to want to do it.  Plus {reference above question} being out in the middle of nowhere would be hard to get in consistently to donate.  And my blood vessels decided to disappear with my pregnancies. 

I know it sounds like I am making up excuses, but it is all true!  {unfortunately}

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?  Definitely doing the budget thang.  I am also working on being more strategic with my coupons.  Not over the top couponing, but working on working the ‘system’.  Here are a couple good resource sites if you have been thinking about how to use coupons more.

As you can see by how ‘nice’ these site are, coupons are a big deal to lots of people.  I also use SwagBucks to earn gift cards to buy extras and give as gifts which helps out with the budget too.  I did a post {here} on what I have ‘earned’ so far with SwagBucks.

Remember: Amazon Gift Card Giveaway is open till Apr. 25th

  1. Wow!!! We are alot alike. I get lost alot too...and love your term of "exploring" I'm a big junkin' person ( garage sales that is ) and when you aren't too familiar with all of the roads its a true adventure in its self...but too true that you do see some unique things you wouldn't otherwise see.

    True about the blood bank as well, hate going through the many unendless questions....

    Love reading your blog!!! Congrats on the 400 mark!!

  2. I love your questions. I think it's great that you want your reader to know more about you. I do that on my own blog the feature of the day followed by the question of the day...
    I'm a camping buff lol as you know... I think full timing in a RV is proof enough. I am one of those people who feel guilty when spoiled and so I don't spoil if at all... I am a coupon freek even if I don't use the product because if I can get it 80% or more off then I donate to the food pantry to help out (you'd be amazed on the amount of food we donate)... If I could change one thing about myself. To stop beating myself up when it comes to crafting. I craft for a living and I am terrible about thinking I suck... errr lol.... Great job on todays blog - I enjoyed it a GREAT deal...

  3. Wouldn't it be grand to not have to live on a budget? Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always nice to make a new friend. Have an awesome weekend!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
