farmgirlvintage_giveaway.jpg

Calling all of my quilty friends, boy do I have a special treat for you all today! A couple of weeks ago, I did a getting started post on quilting and I mentioned one of my favorite etsy shops Stitches ‘n Giggles. Well Lori saw my post and as a thank you she has offered to do a giveaway for my readers! Yipee!! If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ve already seen my post on the super cute book called Farm Girl Vintage book by Lori Holt! I’ve also posted some of my chosen fabrics for the online sew-a-long Lori Holt is doing called Farm Girl Fridays. The sew-a-long started on May 1, but there’s still time to join in the fun. Every Friday she’ll be posting a block with tips and inspiration for sewing said block!

Little Bits Review & Giveaway

littlebits6.jpg

Have you guys heard of Little Bits Electronics? Well, they were new to me! But when they sent me an email to review their products, I was intrigued. I already knew that Turbo loved to play with anything electronic, and after taking a look at their website, I knew he’d love to check them out!   And I was right. After stalking the mailman for what seemed like forever (really about 3-5 days), our package finally arrived! It took him all of about 1 second to tear into it, and start playing around.   Instantly he was lurking around asking people to shake his hand. I thought it was going to be a shocking experience, but actually it was just a harmless buzzer that caused a lot of giggles around here.   He then went back to work creating more projects with the fun manual. They sent us the deluxe kit, and there are about 15 projects in the manual, but there are hundreds more projects online on their website. One thing that are so cool about these kits is that they … [Read more...]

How to Winterize your Nails & Giveaway

TrendingWInterColors_thumb.jpg

Dry hands and cuticles? Don’t worry I have some tips for you today! This one is for not only the ladies out there, but the men too so don’t close your browser too fast boys! It’s winter time, and I don’t know about you, but my hands are super dry and that includes my cuticles and nails. I’m sure it has much to do with all of the hand washing and sanitizing I make everyone do during cold and flu season. I’m like the hand washing ninja these days. Just ask my kids they’ll tell you. And let’s face it, my husband isn’t asking for too many back rubs with my dry scratchy hands. And that’s no bueno. So just as I was lamenting about the sad state of my cuticles, I received this handy winterizing tip from  Julep Nail Polish.  What great timing, right? And since it’s a weekend…and I like to share random fun things on weekends…I thought a nail care post might just help out a few folks. And don’t worry, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just thought I’d share a little hand care tips … [Read more...]

Math U See Giveaway!

spelling-header.jpg

Good morning everyone! I am so excited today, I have a great giveaway for all of you Math-U-See and Spelling You See users out there! And if you haven’t tried Math U See yet, now is a perfect time to check it out. If I switch curriculum, I try to do it after the Christmas break so it’s like a nice clean start.   Math-U-See One thing I love about Math-U-See is that they teach to mastery, and that means your student might not learn a certain skill right off the bat. They build on concepts so that the math skills actually make sense for your student. Students also use the MUS visual manipulatives to help further understand whatever skill they are working at the time. However to my surprise the students do not become depending on the manipulatives to solve problems. They’re simply hands on training tools to use until a concept is mastered. This is what the Math-U-See looks like in our workboxes. I pull out their worksheet each day and keep the video DVD and our little plastic … [Read more...]
