Close To Home Event Kick-Off!!

We're so excited to have you here participating in our April blog event...
"Close To Home Camping and Nature Art"
Just in time to get ready for summer!

To find out more about all the fun stuff we will be doing this month, please visit the Close To Home Event page for all the details and upcoming goodies.

We'd like to start with a bang with our sponsor HealthyHikerGear.com!  Sound good?  We think so.

There are so many things to do and places to go for a vacation close to home.  I've heard some refer to this as "staycationing".  Camping, hiking, picnicking or even hanging out in the backyard with a fire pit and some marshmallows can be loads of fun for you and your families. This picture is one of my very most favorite places in the whole world to go and it's just over an hour away!

There are so many products which make camping, picnicking and hiking easy and affordable and shopping is right at your fingertips.  HealthyHikerGear.com is an online retailer of all the camping and hiking gear you need PLUS lots of awesome gear for backyard and other outdoors fun.  Have you ever gone out in the backyard at night with headlamps and searched for bugs in the lawn?  Super fun!  Have you ever camped at the beach and searched for shells in the morning?  Ok, we're nowhere near the ocean here but I am going to guess, super fun!  Have you ever headed out on an impromptu day hiking trip with camera in hand?  Again, super fun!

HealthyHikerGear.com also offers a broad selection of sleeping bags (because some of us are picky when it comes to what type of bag we will sleep in!), solar and battery flashlights and tent accessories including heaters and showers for those that prefer to be pampered in the great outdoors.  Oh, back to those sleeping bags... believe me, claustrophobia and mummy bags do not mix! .shudder.

I think we would all agree that one of the very basics of spending time in the outdoors is having a tent and guess what?  Yes!  HealthyHikerGear.com has generously offered one of you lucky Artsy Chaos readers a tent of your very own!

This gorgeous Eureka Tetragon 5 tent is up for grabs!  A retail value of $75.  Eureka has been making quality products since 1895 and Healthy Hiker Gear is an authorized retailer.  The Tetragon 5 tent is lightweight and sets up easily making it perfect for hiking trips.  We really like that it has a "bathtub" bottom to prevent leaks from rain and splashing.  Can't wait to win it?  The Eureka Tetragon 5 can be purchased at Healthy Hiker Gear.

The giveaway portion of this post is now CLOSED.  Congrats to our winner, SETexasMama !!

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.
