GIVEAWAY: 3-2-1 Penguins! Season One DVD! -CLOSED-

Winner

My daughter says that her favorite part about 3-2-1 Penguins! Season One is "everything"  lol  She also likes it "when white stuff splashed on the Penguin's Face...it was so funny, I don't know what the white stuff was."  She would watch this all day if I let her.  Such a cute show with a kid audience in mind.

This series includes great moral lessons and exploring outer space.  What more can you ask for? :):)  Like VeggieTales, I enjoy watching this show with my kids.
Recently my daughter and I watched the episode "Invasion of the Body Swappers".
First off, it's pretty funny and had me laughing a few times.  The dialogue doesn't speak down to kids, if anything it could enhance their vocabularies!  I think I even heard a few words I'd like add to my "wordbelt". :)

Brother and Sister, Jason and Michelle, are fun characters. In this episode Michelle is reading a popular magazine and wants to be "pretty".  She…

GUEST POST: American Cancer Society Study for SLC Residents

Guest post from Jessica Gonzalez: 
There are few things I know for certain. But one thing I know is that I would do absolutely anything to protect the smiling, blue-eyed, stuffed-animal loving baby girl that captured my heart when she was born 18-months-ago. My own mom died of cancer when I was only seven. I was just old enough that I remember how awful cancer is. While I can’t protect my baby girl from everything, there is something I can do to help protect her and future generations from a disease that took my mom more than 20 years ago and that will claim more than 575,000 American lives this year. That’s why I’m helping the American Cancer Society find volunteer participants for its latest study.

Residents in the Salt Lake City, Utah area should enroll today to be part of Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) that will take place November 13-17. The study helps researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can cause or prevent cancer, which ul…

GIVEAWAY: Soft Scrub FREE Product Coupon! 3 Winners! (US) -CLOSED-

Winners

I tried two new household cleaners from Soft Scrub and I love them!  As some of you know I've spent the last couple weeks moving and cleaning.  Soft Scrub Total couldn't have come to my household at a better time!  One thing about moving everything out of a house is that you see what has snuck in and set up camp in the various crevices... ew

The three new products are:
Total All-Purpose 
Total All-Purpose Bath & Bowl 
Total All-Purpose with Bleach

Features:
Works upside down Foam or spray
Cleans and deodorizes

I was able to review Total All-Purpose with Bleach and Total All-Purpose Bath & Bowl.  I especially love that they can be either a foam OR spray!  This came in really handy depending on what I was cleaning.  I stuck mostly with the foam and let it sit.  As the foam ran down my sink you could see streaks of clean where the foam was in the midst of the grime, without any scrubbing!  I would buy this product again and again.  It works great and the spray/foam opt…

Find It On Etsy Giveaway: KMericks Print of Choice! -CLOSED-

Winner

KMericks on Etsy is a shop that is inspired by Kate;  a mixed media artist, digital illustrator, and a mom.  As discussed in her bio on Etsy, she is inspired by the light her "kiddo shines".  Before I even read Kate's bio, I could feel the sweetness and light that is emanated from her inspiration, just by looking through her shop.

I reviewed "For You With Love" pictured above.  I love the simplicity of this picture and love the boxy look among the soft flower and hearts.  I'm undecided as to whether to keep it hung in my daughters room, or move it to my new baby's room....what do you think? This print as well as many others in KMericks shop are incredibly cute for kids rooms.  Although depending on your decor, these are meant to be hung anywhere. Kate from KMericks says:

"These prints are fun, vibrant, and perfect for your home, whether office, art room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, locker and just about anywhere you desire."

So really, yo…

GIVEAWAY- VeggieTales: Little Ones Can Do Big Things Too! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

We are huge VeggieTales fans around here!  Larry the cucumber is hilarious!!  I also love the voice of "Junior"... it's adorable.  My kids start off by singing the opening song with gusto which usually leaves it in my head for the rest of the day.  I'm okay with that though. :)

VeggieTales "Little Ones Can Do Big Things Too!"  consists of a few stories about little guys accomplishing big tasks.  Like Dave and the giant pickle..lol  I love this story.  It of course is adapted from David and Goliath in the Bible.  VeggieTales has used their vegetable characters to tell a great story that teaches a valuable lesson, and it does so in a fun way that kids can relate to.  My favorite part is when Dave brings pizza to the Israelites..lol


Another story is about a bully and how Junior the Asparagus deals with it.  He learns to stand up for what is right even though the bully is bigger than him.  It is also a great lesson about listening to your parents!  Somet…

Find It On Etsy GIVEAWAY: Botanical Bird Leaf Bracelet!! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Winner

Autumn is here...and so are the wonderful colors and styles of jewelry available in Botanical Bird on Etsy! I LOVE this time of year, so its a joy to see some autumn inspired jewelry to enjoy.  Botanical Bird certainly isn't limited to the inspirations and color scheme of fall; but is certainly accompanied by other beautiful jewelry that is indefinitely inspired by our beautiful earth.

Cyd, the creator and mastermind behind Botanical Bird is one talented lady! Not only does she work diligently in her shop, she's also a poet currently working on a children's book.  Her poems can be viewed on "Hello Poetry" under the name CA Guilfoyle.  I had a chance to read a few of her poems and realized how intertwined the arts of poetry and jewelry making is for her. Her theme most generously involves her love of nature, which would be hard to ignore in such a beautiful place (especially this time of year) as Oregon; where Cyd is from.

I was able to review these Acorn …
