Turtle Magazine Subscription - Save over 50%!

My kids have been receiving Turtle magazine for a while now, and they love it.  I don't know about your family, but my kids have way too much stuff.  I think a magazine subscription for them to enjoy long term makes a great gift for Christmas!

[Giveaway] UPrinting Flyers

As the owner of a small business, I’ve learned  the benefits of different advertising strategies.  I really believe that to keep customers thinking of your company in the future, you need to give them something to remember….besides the obvious quality of work and customer service.  I use brochures in my packages so customers have something to look at when they get (and love) their piece.  This way, they might find something they didn’t see before or think of something they want to do in the future for an upcoming event.

The Kindergarten Parent

My oldest son started Kindergarten this fall and he loves it.  I am really glad we moved in time for him to go to school in the new neighborhood.  The school is great!  They have so many interactive things for the kids and I love that the Kindergarten teachers do things that include the parents.  Which is very different from the preschool we went to, because they had a strict policy on only certified people can interact with the kids.  School has only been going for a couple of months and we’ve already had 2 activity nights, several fundraisers, 2 walk-to-school days escorted by fire and police authorities, 2 field trips, an open house, Halloween party/parade and just last week, an Indian Pow Wow.  And with the holidays coming, I’m expecting my schedule to get booked real fast.

[Review] Montagne Jeunesse Facial Masque

It seems as though the chaos of summer never actually went away when you think about our move, Conner starting full day of school and as always, keeping busy with work.  I just needed something that was for me to unwind.  So, after the kids were in bed and the husband was working late, I decided to have a little "me" time.  I was so happy to have a Montagne Jeunesse Face Masque handy.

[Review] Mixbook 8x6" Photo Book

Once again, I am left speechless with my Mixbook creation.  I was given the opportunity to review an 8x6” Softcover Photo Book from Mixbook.  I was actually putting together a scrapbook with my own photos without having to get out the glue and scissors. I loved spending the time editing the layout and choosing the photos to document My Family’s 2011.

[Review & Giveaway] Go Green Champ Diaper #Rafflecopter CLOSED

I am a newbie when it comes to cloth diapering.  I started with my 4th (and final) child because I never knew the growing trend in cloth diapering with my first 3 kids.  I was a little hesitant to start at first because, of course, the only opinions I heard were from my Grandparents who had no choice but to cloth diaper.  They didn’t like how they soaked through, or didn’t fit right, etc.  But with today’s cloth diaper is so much easier to use, just has clean as disposable diapers and keeps the earth a better place when you think of how many disposable diapers you aren’t throwing away.  Plus, the savings of not having
