6/9/2016 Have you volleyed around the idea of going solar?

If the venture seems a little too “out there” or overwhelming to pursue, you might be interested in a free online Google tool called Project Sunroof: http://bit.ly/24D2FhB

6/14/16 Have you ever ordered a (carefully considered) cup of barista-brewed coffee and strolled over to the cream counter to add a dash of dairy?


And you likely took an absentminded glance at those shiny silver thermoses to check the fat content, splashed a dash in your cup, and moved on with your day.

6/21/2016 The value of “external” grief support wasn’t something I’d given much thought to until I happened upon an organization called the National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC).
Now, I can’t stop thinking about what a wonderful service they provide, so I had to share it with you: http://bit.ly/28MQddq

Shasta, Glamperized!

If you’ve read my Glamping with MaryJane book, you might remember my little story about a Shasta trailer I fell in love with after seeing it for sale on craigslist. After all, my family had an almost identical one when I was growing up (that’s me in the tire swing at our deer hunting camp).

This leads to me to a Craigslist ad: http://bit.ly/291JVUX

7/5/2016 If you could suddenly hear the ticking of your life clock, what would you do with the time remaining?

Many people, right or wrong, throw themselves desperately at the feet of the medical profession, hoping beyond hope for a cure. They are willing to suffer through brutal treatments to try and extend life, often trading quality for a shot at quantity.

But not Norma Bauerschmidt: http://bit.ly/29g24BA

7/17/2016 (MBA Jane) For this week’s Make It Easy/Rethink Your Space Intermediate Level Young Cultivator Badge, I steeled my frazzled nerves with a nice cuppa chai with extra whip and sprinkles, and marched on over to my neighbor’s house, otherwise known as The Den of Fear and Trembling. No one calls it that but me, but that’s because they’ve never been inside Andy’s bedroom: http://bit.ly/29O8YwA

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Emily Hack!!!

Emily Hack (alterationsbyem, #2951) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Entrepreneurial Spirit Merit Badge! http://bit.ly/2a7LgZO



7/24/2016 For this week’s Make It Easy/Furniture Makeover Intermediate Level Merit Badge, I was enjoying my new, upcycled, one-of-a-kind nightstand so very much, I figured I was more than ready for the next project.

I cracked my knuckles, rolled up my sleeves, paused the latest episode of whatever was on the DIY Network, and got down to business.

To earn my Intermediate Level badge, I had to invest a minimum of 10 hours and up my game, so to speak. I needed to do two different techniques and think big.

Like … bookcase big: http://bit.ly/2akBUNO
