Christmas Cards...It's That Time of Year Again!

Every year I think, "Next year I will get my Christmas Cards done sooner!" Only, every year I seem to be getting later and later...or end up not sending them at all *gasp*.

Well, enough is enough! This year, I am going to get my cards ordered...and sent out ON TIME!

This morning, I took the time to pick out my cards from Tiny Prints. I chose this one:


I love this card! I love that I can add the gorgeous family pics that we had taken this year (finally!). 
I love that I can personalize it (that saves a ton of time!), and I love that I can order matching return address labels if I want:

I am not the best at keeping in touch with family, and so I am determined to keep the Christmas Card tradition alive in my house. Family and friends are so important, and Christmas is the perfect time to remind them of how much we love and miss them (we live far away from our family and many of our friends).

What about you? Are you sending out Christmas cards this year? If you are, you really should check out the gorgeous cards available from Tiny Prints. There are 469 styles to choose from (and that is just their holiday cards...they offer a bunch of other cards also!).  But, hurry! Tiny Prints is having a special sale through tomorrow (Nov 29)!

3 days of cyber savings! 15% off $75+ or 20% off $149+ and free shipping! code: cyber20 | ends 11/29

I am so excited with the card I found, and I can't wait to send them to my friends and family!
Disclosure: In exchange for writing this post, I will receive 50 cards from Tiny Prints. All opinions are my own and are 100% truthful.

Howard Leight SYNC Earmuffs Review

Recently, I won a pair of Howard Leight SYNC Earmuffs from Sharon at Real Life Deals. (Yippee!)

Just a note: I won these on November 12th and they arrived yesterday!! How's that for quick service!

While I had never heard of the Howard Leight brand, I was interesting in the feature of noise-blocking that the earmuffs boast. Since I homeschool my children and part of their work is done on the computer, I am constantly hearing complaints (like "I can't concentrate!", "He's/she's being too loud!", and "Can you please be a little quieter?") while one child was on the computer and the other two were working with me. I love the thought of earmuffs that actually block background noise. (Anything to eliminate distractions while we're doing school is a good thing!)

So, when the earmuffs arrived yesterday, I was anxious to try them out. And I am far from disappointed!!
They are amazing! Now one child can work on the computer while the other two interact, read aloud, or even practice piano without being a distraction! WOW.


As a mom, the thing I absolutely LOVE about these is that (now that my children are old enough that I don't need to supervise them every moment) I can wear these earmuffs and have the sense of being 'away from it all'. I love that I can block out unnecessary noise while I  listen to books on CD or my IPod, or listen to my music. That is SO nice!

I really love these earmuffs, and I would love the opportunity to try some of Howard Leight's other products. I am definitely pleased with the quality and lightening-fast service that I have received so far.

Notice: I was not asked to do this review. The only product I received was the set of earmuffs that I won in this giveaway. All opinions are my own and were given because I am truly impressed with the quality of this product and the speed of the delivery!

Styling Iron Giveaway!

This summer my oldest daughter became more interested in how her hair looks, and suddenly I was having to share my hair straightener. I am all for sharing, mind you, but it does make it kind of tricky when we are both getting ready at the same time...

 Now, my middle daughter is using my straightener, too. I think it might be time to invest in another one! But they are expensive, and with Christmas coming...

Fortunately for me, Hope's Cafe is giving away an HSG Infrashine MST Styling Iron HERE. I hope I win! :-)

Giveaway ends Nov 9, so hurry on over!


FunTote Giveaway

I have been looking for a piano bag for my son to carry his piano books in. Unfortunately, all of the bags I have found are just perfect...for my daughters.  Enter FunTote, a unique line of bags...and they carry this:
Can you say. perfect?!

Yes, I know these bags are designed for women, but my son doesn't have to know that. :-)

And the best part?  Life Full of Laughter is hosting a giveaway for a FunTote HERE.

Hurry--the giveaway ends November 9!


The BEST Husband Gift!

I found the BEST gift for my husband today!! I am so excited!

Men are so hard to buy for, and my husband is the worst. He never needs or wants anything, no matter how many times I ask him. He does love sports, though, and he also does all of the grilling at our house (mainly because I nearly burned down our house the first/only time I tried...long story).

So, I about jumped off the couch today when I saw this:

It is a Penn State grilling "sportula", available from How awesome is that??!

Right now, Contest Corner is giving away one Sportula of choice to two lucky winners! But hurry, because the giveaway ends tonight! Enter the giveaway HERE.

Yay! I hope I win!!
