Baby Shower Coming Up!

Hey Neighbors! I am sure you have noticed this week has been a little slow At the Fence.  Maybe on here it has been, but not for me.  We are traveling, attending camp meeting and went to a baby shower!  Today is the last day of camp meeting and then we head for home.  I am tired, but it sure has been fun! I will give you a peek at a couple pictures to prepare you for next week.  We are having a Baby Shower Event here At the Fence!  We have so many interesting products to share with you!  Be sure to stop by regularly next week.  And also keep entering the ongoing giveaways! Just wait to hear about all the fun we had!  Be sure to stop by Monday!

Paperless Home Organization From Simplified Pantry

Hey neighbors! Are you looking for some sort of system to help you be a little more organized?  A system where you won't constantly be losing your notebook, or wishing it was with you when you need it?  Then I have a solution that just might work for you.   Paperless Home Organization if from Simplified Pantry .  They are all about helping you make your life easier.  They also have two cookbooks that the Crew was able to review at the same time.  They are; Simplified Dinners and Simplified Dinners Gluten Free/Dairy Free .  I am all for anything that helps organize my day and give me more time for my family. Before I start on the Paperless Home Organization let me say I received all three titles and I intend on trying out the Simplified Dinners.  We have just been super busy and traveling, so I am concentrating on Paperless Home Organization. To begin with I will say I am not an overly organized person.  I leave little post it notes all over, I start one notebook and t

Wholly Guacamole Father's Day is Coming Up!

Hey Neighbors! Does you husband or father LOVE Wholly Guacamole ?  My whole family does!  We use it for all kinds of things.  Usually Mexican meals, but Wholly Guacamole can be used for so much more!  Guacamole Burgers, Salsa Burgers, and so many other ideas on the Wholly Guacamole site.  There are even desserts!  The Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies look like something out of the Dr. Seuss books! Just look at these Taco Cupcakes with Wholly Salsa Dip !  These are definitely on my list of recipes to try! We are talking Father's Day though, so Dad might prefer a recipe for grilling out!  Or maybe he likes his WHolly Guacamole and Salsa with chips for an evening snack!  My family has chips and dips a few times a week, either as a snack or with their lunch.  How would dad like Mexican Spice Crusted Steak with Avocado Lime Rice ?  It looks GREAT! I can't wait to get home now and try out some new Wholly Guacamole recipes.  The Taco Cupcakes are going to be a must

My Image Button Maker

Hey Neighbors! I recently received the My Image Button Maker for review!  You might remember that we previously did a review of their MYFBM Bracelet Maker .  Anyway, my daughter had fun working with this one.  It is so easy to use!  It comes with everything you need to create several buttons or magnets. Above is the actual My Image Button Maker.  This is not only where you store all your supplies, but you also make your buttons right here!  There are two drawers in  the front to hold your button fronts and backs, along with the pins and magnets.  The circle in the top is where you cut out your images.  You just slide it in there until the image is the way you like it, and then push the yellow lever on the side to cut our your image.  We chose to make a couple of buttons first with pre-made designs.  My daughter picked out some of her favorites. After you have the image cut out, you need to get the front and back pieces of the button and decide if you want a pin or

Growing Up

This guest post from Werner Rogers I’ve gotten really concerned about money recently and it’s a new sensation. I grew up in a privileged family, I guess you could say? That sounds terrible but you know, that’s my reality. But when I got married my dad told me he was no longer going to support me financially which was fair, but now my husband and I are really hurting for money. We moved here to Texas because he’s in the military and that’s the way it had to be – and since we had to leave California I didn’t have a job when we got here so we’re making do on his salary alone. I’ve been clipping coupons and selling some of our old junk online because we need cash to cover our moving expenses.

Every little bit helps and so far we’ve been able to save about $800 this month just doing little stu

Radz Has Gone Wild!
