Blogiversary Giveaway #1- Board Book!!!! Giveaway Closed!




One year ago I started this blog. I cannot believe that it has already been a year! All month long I will be celebrating by having some giveaways! I was able to review a Take Your Pix Photo Album. These are so cute and very easy to use. They are available in 3 different colors Pink, Blue, and yellow! They say My First Photos. There are so many ways these can be used. I am using mine as a scrapbook for my 2 year old cousin.Here is a picture of the first page that I will put a Christmas/winter picture in, These albums are very easy to use. Unlike regular albums, these albums have an opening at the top to where you can just slip the picture down in it! It that easy! She also has a plain white ones that are great for weddings or to decorate however you like.Laura Miranti at Board Book Albums created these books when her daughter was about 1 year old, and was behind in some of her developmental milestones! These are great for children with autism, speech delay, or other special needs. The board books are very easy to turn the pages, and great to put stickers and other scrap booking items on. Laura is also allowing me to giveaway one of her "My First Photo Books" to one of my readers.

Aloha Friday # 9!!



In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My Question today is: Do you have a real Christmas tree or an artificial Christmas tree?

My answer is: We have an artificial tree because so many of my family members have allergies!
If you would like to post your own Aloha Friday Question go to Island life

Christmas Giveaway/Review # 12- money savvy piggy bank!! GIVEAWAY CLOSED!

Money Savvy allowed me to do a review and giveaway for their Money Savvy Blue piggy bank. This piggy bank is not like any other piggy bank I have ever saw. This piggy bank has 4 different slots the first slot says Save, the second has Spend, the third Donate, and the fourth Invest. What I love most about this piggy bank is on the bottom of each foot it has where you can get the money out. There is a label on each foot that says which says either save, spend, invest, or donate. Lets say you want to get the money out of save you turn the piggy bank upside down and find the foot that says save and you open it and get all the money out. It's really get to get the money in and out. This is a great money management tool for children ages 4 and above. There are even stickers inside the box that can be placed inside the ovals. Each one has a goal on it or the child can draw their own goals! By using this bank parents can help their children learn importance basic personal finance concepts and skills such as short and long term goal setting. These piggy banks are available in six colors Blue, red, green, pink, purple, and platinum! They even have Cash Cache Personal Finance Organizer to teach teens ages 12-16 about financing which I think is great. I absolutely love the piggy bank I reviewed, and I cant wait to get my nephew started saving once he turns 4!!

Christmas/Holiday Review # 11!!!!

Debbie from ALTERED ART CHARM BRACELETS allowed me to do a review on one of her charm bracelets. All the charm bracelets she has are one of a kind bracelets, so if you see one you really like you might want to buy it before it gets sold. Once the bracelet is sold there is not another made like it again. She has all kinds of Charm bracelets for different occasions such as Christmas, Winter, for cat lovers, dog lovers, and some that are just pretty. I have never saw a charm bracelet as cute and fashioned as these. I received one with green beads, flower beads, humming bird, bee, and either a dragon fly or butterfly. Mine has a heart where you fasten the bracelet. She also will adjust them for your size, so that they will fit perfectly.






I was so excited when I received it because it was in the cutest polka dot box with a ribbon wrapped around it.




You can see the green beads and the bee.


Here is a picture of the heart that you clip the clasp on to fasten the bracelet.
