We've been in cooler regions of the United States this summer, so heat wasn't a problem -- but we had to come back to central Texas this month! Heat over 100 degrees!

I made really nice adjustable, removable fabric awnings for my previous camper.

Adjustable removable awnings for any camper from pvc

I liked them a lot, and they are super cute, but they have a couple drawbacks. If it gets really windy in the middle of the night, they will bang on the camper. Sometimes loudly enough that you have to get out of your cozy bed and put them away.  It took a lot of time to make the awnings - making the solar shades take almost no time at all!

So, I came up with the idea of solar screen covers for the windows. There are a lot of advantages.  There is a video at the end of this article that shows how stable they are in a windstorm.

  • They block up to 90% of the sun's heat.  
  • Unlike the silver stuff, you can see through your windows and don't feel like you're living in a cave.  
  • They are easy to put up and take down. 
  • You don't have to remove them if it rains or is windy. 
  • You can open and close all your windows, including the emergency window without removing them.
  • You can have airflow through the trailer and still block the heat

Best of all YOU CAN SEE OUTSIDE!

The screens are held up with magnets and are easy to install and remove without a ladder. Interested? Read on to see how I did it!

Easiest Way to Remove Tartar from Your Dog's Teeth - Try this Before Doggie Dentist! Don't Put Your Dog Through The Trauma of Dental Cleaning


I have always had large dogs, who don't seem to have many problems with their teeth. I now have a small dog, Emily, who is about 6 years old. Apparently, small dogs have a lot of trouble with tartar build-up. Her breath became so horrible, that I realized she had dental problems. After doing some research, I realized that if I took her to the doggie dentist, they would PUT HER TO SLEEP to clean her teeth! Anesthesia is dangerous so I thought I would try cleaning her teeth myself before subjecting her to the vet. I really had to do something, her teeth were so bad!

Make a FREE Sturdy Cone Thread Holder that Folds for Travel


Actually, it doesn't have to be a travel holder, I use it at home all the time. It folds up very compactly for travel, though.

I use cone thread for a lot of sewing. I was looking online at a neat holder like this one

suddenly it struck me -  I have something similar  .... You know those CD/DVD stackers? well, I thought - "hmm, that would make a good thread holder".  Five minutes and a piece of wire later, I had a nifty free thread holder.

Have more in your budget for CAMPING!
