GIVEAWAY: I Built It! Personalized Games! -CLOSED-


This is such a great idea!  You can personalize games now with I Built It!  We received the Memory Match  + Tic Tac Toe game to review.  Not only is it fun to play with my 3 year old, but it was fun to make too!

It was super easy.  My daughter could even put her own picture in the piece herself.  I love that it's easy to do because I can see us changing out pictures quite a bit. :)  I Built It! has coloring pages as FREE downloads available on their site (they have a lot of great ones!) or you can use your own drawings or photos, basically anything you can cut out and stick in there.  I love how this game can change and evolve as my kids grow.  We did a number page this time, next time I want to put in pictures of her friends. :)

This game allows for a lot of creativity.  That's me incognito when I was young.  I could add a picture of me now, much...much older, and that would be a fun match.  Young- old, friends, relatives, shapes - objects of that shape, the list goes on and on.  As my daughter gets older she can come up with a matching idea, then cut them out, and put them in the pieces herself!   I also love the durability of this game.  My little son can throw the pieces around, but he can't hurt the game or artwork.  I suppose he could hurt people, but that's another

You can also play Tic Tac Toe with the board and pieces.  It's a little advanced for her, but just another way this game will be relevant in our house for YEARS!  I Built It! Games also has Snakes & Ladders, Monsters Ludo, Checkers, and Chess.  So all ages can have fun with these games.  Also this would be a great gift idea!  You could even put in the pictures for them so they get another surprise. :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots
lemon juice

In batches add mixture to a blender

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
