New Sitcom on CMT

Today I had the opportunity to preview CMT's new sitcom Working Class. As a child of the 80's, sitcoms occupy a spot in my heart and I always enjoy a quick 30-minute TV laugh. I also enlisted my 15-year old daughter to preview Working Class with me simply because she is a TV junkie.

Working Class stars TV veteran Melissa Peterman ("Reba") and Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Ed Asner. Peterman's character, Carli, is a struggling single mom who lives with her brother, her 3 children and works at a grocery deli counter. Asner's character also works at the deli counter and is a likable if not crotchety old guy. The first episode doesn't delve much into the characters' pasts but it's obvious that Carli is a bit of a redneck in a new town of plastic surgery, dogs in a purse and yoga moms.

In the premier episode 'The Buddy System', Carli’s old flame from high school shows up hoping to re-ignite his “spark” with Carli — even if it means humiliating her in front of her new boss. Working Class is easy to watch, has some good one-liners and has the possibility for some genuine relationship tension and humor; definitely a sitcom that's pure entertainment.
My daughter gave it 4 out of 5 stars and a thumbs up. We will definitely be tuning in for the premiere and second episode.

The premiere airs on CMT January 28 at 8pm EST/PST, followed by a second, all-new episode at 8:30pm.

This CMT preview was made possible by my involvement with the One2One Network.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
