Pin it to Win it GIVEAWAY: Oransi Fridge Air Purifier! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

The Oransi Ionic Fridge Air Purifier is pretty small but helps a great deal in my fridge!  Which is nice because I don't always have that much extra space. :)  I was really happy to try out this product!  I have opened plenty of refrigerators in my life where I've been hit in the face with an odor that is not appetizing.  This little gadget can fix that and it will put your mind at ease when you have guests helping themselves in your kitchen :):)

Here are the top 10 features:

1. Save money – for starters there are no replacement filters and nothing to clean. The air purifier uses 2 AA batteries that require replacement approximately every 45-90 days. Built-in micro processor controls the operation of the air purifier so it will cycle on and off to save battery life.

 2. Silent – no fans.

 3. Intuitive.

 4. Effective in the removal of odors and bacteria to keep your refrigerator smelling fresh and your food fresher. 

 5. Conveniently fits anywhere in your refrigerator.

What to do with Peaches!

It's the PEACH season, a season that I love.  It's summer, and soon it will start to cool off. We can enjoy fruits of our labor from our gardens or since I didn't plant a yard this year, those of our friends who have enough to share!

This year, I got a ton of peaches from a neighbor who had so many on her tree she didn't know what to do with them.  We tried to help as best we could!

This is how my family enjoyed those delicious peaches.

1.  Left some to eat just as they were.

2.  Made tons of freezer jam! It was my first ever attempt and I think I was successful (in my book).  I used a recipe from Confections of a Foodie Bride.
3. I made Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler!

I really should have peeled, sliced and frozen some of them too for our green smoothies!  In all the baking, I forgot about that one!
Enjoy peach season!

The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure Movie Review

Now that The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure movie is in theaters (as of TODAY),  I can officially post my review of it.   Some of the reviews I have read from movie critics so far haven't been too favorable.  But I wonder how many of them went with little kids??  I don't know about you but I RARELY take my kids to movies because they can't sit for that long, they are constantly needing shushing, or they get scared.  This movie is a remedy for all of that!!  They can sing, dance, and interact with the movie!  I think it's a great idea and watching my kids enjoy it made it worth it for me.

I actually got to watch this movie because I wasn't constantly dealing with a kid issue.  Admittedly it is NOT geared towards adults (although I liked the guest stars).  :)  No adult humor.   The closest thing would be the Toni Braxton musical number..lol  She is not as wholesome looking as the other cast members which just made her part seem a little out of place.

Find It On Etsy GIVEAWAY: BugsyAndSprite City Skyline Print! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Winner

BugsyAndSprite on Etsy are in the business of making city skylines into art that is both "modern and useful."  When I first saw them on Etsy I was instantly drawn to the bright and fun colors of the back drop along with the simplicity of the black and white skylines.

The inspiration behind the BugsyAndSprite Cities Series Prints:

"Many of life's greatest memories are created by traveling, living and working around the globe.  Each city has an interesting unique landmark that when you look at it you say "that's my city".  



For that reason, without really realizing it,  I chose this print of Oslo, Norway.  I chose this because of my husbands special connections here.  You have to admit, some places you have visited have a more sentimental connection than others. These city prints from BugsyAndSprite look great and add a simple style that doesn't take away from anything else you have up in your house. The great thing about these is that you can …

DIY Sewing Projects for Mom & Baby!

My sister-in-law will have a new baby come November!  I thought I would make her a couple of things that she can use and will hopefully like!  First are two reversible bibs that she can use on her little boy until he no longer wants to wear them :D.

I traced one of my sons bibs to make these two.  One of the bibs has fleece on one side and terry cloth on the other. I used white bias tape and a red zig zag pattern.  I think the one on the right came out a tad better. That one is terry cloth and I made my own bias tape!  They both have velcro on them.(I bought a towel that I cut up for my bibs!).


I also made her 3 different burp cloths.  One of them has the curves to them. I simply traced one that I had at home and it served well as a pattern.  The other is simply a rectangle.  The third is one using a cloth diaper. I added some fabric for embellishment.  If your baby spits up a lot, these might come in handy!


And finally, here is the receiving blanket I made!  This one I think is my f…

GIVEAWAY- Angelina Ballerina: Dreams Do Come True - The Movie DVD! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

Angelina Ballerina: Dreams Do Come True DVD is a new feature length movie from HIT Entertainment and Lionsgate!  It's a cute show with lots of words with "cheese" and "mouse" added in :)  This movie also has nice messages about following your dreams and friendship.

My kids love Angelina Ballerina and it always gets them singing and dancing.  The movie is 56 minutes long with a fun plot.  I would say the target age of 2 to 7 holds true.  The little ones enjoy the twirling and songs while the older kids will get into the story more.

DVD Synopsis:
It’s a dream come true! When Angelina Ballerina wins the Mouseland Herald’s ‘Big Dreams Do Come True’ competition and a place in the Metroquefort Ballet Junior Dance Company, she must make a big decision: Will she leap at the opportunity to become a prima ballerina or shine on at Camembert Academy with the support of her friends and family. Join Angelina as she discovers what matters most to any young mouseling in …
