5QFriday ~ 5/13/2011 {belated post}

Due to all the blogger issues last week, and then working at a H/J horse show this weekend, I am a little/lot late in getting these questions and answer posted. 

On another note…

I am going to be switching to a Wordpress blog, and am in the process of getting it set up.  If you want to watch the progress {and change your bookmarks} the new blog’s site address is  I will switch/redirect the domain once I have all the blogger content moved over.

Five Question Friday at My Little Life

1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none? (From@ThisDaddys_Blog) – I love to go sockless when I am wearing slip-on shoes {which I love to wear}, but… when  I am wearing sneakers I wear angle socks.  And when wearing boots it is calf socks.  I only use tube/knee high socks under my tall riding boots. 

Can you tell I like to have a sock between me and my shoes?

2. Was your childs (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?! (From @mamatodh) – Ms. Diva’s name was picked by Mr. SD.  He would not negotiate except he did let me pick out the middle name for her.  So, on Baby Diva I got to pick what we call her.  Though there was still some discussion on both names.

3. What is your favorite type of weather? (From @TheSpunkyDiva) – I love a warm, slightly breezy day.  The type that I perfect for a nap in the hammock {if you have a hammock}.  I also love a good soaking rain-storm.  Especially if I get to stay in bed and listen to it.  Having to go fed the horses in the rain is not so fun.

4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust") – Normally after one day of ‘excessive’ sleeping in I will wake up between 7 and 8 depending when I went to bed.  My problem is that if left to my own devices I would stay up way late, and then wake up way late.

5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet? (From Pam at "Troop Petrie") – Nope.  I want to be cremated.  Mr. SD isn’t keen on that idea.  So, we haven’t really dealt with it.  I figure plots, caskets, etc. are way more expensive than they are worth.  It is obscene the amount of money they make once you are dead.  Dealing with Grandpa’s death in March was eye opening.  Almost $2k for nothing at all but cremating his body.  Not even anything fancy to put his ashes in.

Add a ‘click-able’ signature to comments you make.

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…
