Google Reader

Ok, so I know this post is really boring, but it's one I've been thinking about typing up for a while and it's much easier to type right now than to upload photos.
If you are not using a reader to follow your blogs you are missing out. I am sure some of you are, if you are please dismiss, but if not... Here goes

Before I discovered google reader I would simply go to my blog and click on each link I had attached under my friends and see if they had a new blog up and from there I would often link to other blogs I liked off of the person's blog I had just visited. Sound familiar to any of you?
Well, how google reader works is anytime you go to someone's blog you select follow in the left hand corner, at this point they will pop up in your google dashboard and in a way this feature alone kind of allows you to follow people with more organization. But because blogger is hosted through google, if you will go into their reader program it totally allows you to manage the blogs you haven't read. It puts them in order from newest to oldest and the ones you haven't read are in a darker color, so you know how many you have left to read from each person you follow.

If I'm not making perfect sense with this, then what you need to do is simply go to every blog you like to read occasionally, follow them in that left hand corner and then go to google reader and it will make sense.

Like I said in the beginning, I know this isn't the most fun blogging topic, but I am typing it out because I wish someone had told me sooner how it all worked. It makes blogging reading so much faster and productive. So, anyway try it and let me know what you think!

Well, hello there!

I'm sorry I haven't blogged as of late, but I was literally buried under boxes.

And I didn't have the internet for 3 weeks, but I have it now, so no excuse. Many blog adventures to come...
These were the light pictures, I was too busy to remember to take pics when we had the "big loads"

Sewing Fun

So, I actually have sewn a few other things in the last few months. The first is a dress I had to make for my class, and while it turned out OK, I did learn I am not a fan of fashion sewing.... too much work, take me to Target with $20 bucks and I can find the same thing with peace of mind.

My personal sewing steps are pin, sew, rip, sew again. So, when Target has the equivalent for the same money it makes it hard to sew, rip, sew again.
However, this next item I feel differently about, first because it was sewn with love, second because it doesn't have to fit my body and third because it's for a baby. And sewing for baby, is so much fun. I made this shopping cart cover for my girl friend's baby shower last week. I hope this keeps her little boy Corbin completely germ free. :)

I will be without internet for a while, but check back in for life in Jersey soon!

life without things

So, apparently I will be living on this for the next 9 days. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Oh, don't worry we also have an air mattress and a litter box.... We'll survive. Or will we? :0
