Blogging helps during the holidays!

I have to say thank you to all the wonderful blogs out there.

I have learned so much about couponing and fun websites like Superpoints and Swagbucks that help me get Amazon gift cards. I would have NEVER known about these sites if it wasn't for blogging.

So I feel it is my duty as a blogger to pass them on to you. These sites basically get you free Amazon gift cards for searching or referring people to their site. You don't have to use my links if you don't want to--- yes it would help me if you did lol but I'm actually not writing this post for that reason :)

It's a rough year for us here, financially. I think everyone is going through rough times right now. And I know if it wasn't for these sites above- or other sites like Ebates and ShopatHome (which have amazing cash back deals- how did I never hear of these sites before blogging????????)  I wouldn't have most of the xmas gifts I have to give right now. These sites are helping me give the ones I love some decent gifts. I wouldn't be able to give them anything if it wasn't for these sites.

So- feel free to check out all of these sites. They may help you too. I'm so grateful for the blogs out there promoting these sites---- and I know my family will thank you as well once they see the items I was able to get them <3

Piczzle Review and Giveaway!

I was lucky enough to review one of the coolest items I have ever seen! I personally love any type of item that you can personalize. I take thousands of pictures every year and love a way to showcase them. Well... this product is absolutely perfect for that!

A Piczzle is a custom made photo puzzle. How cool is that? You can put any photo on a puzzle! They come i rectangle, circle, and heart shaped- with TONS of fun designs to border around your picture.

I am in love with this product!

I got the CUTEST freakin picture of my best friends son and his grandparents. Um- they are also like my 2nd parents--- and I'll admit, a tear came to my eye when I saw how cute this was! (yes, I'm corny- I admit it lol)

The pieces of this custom puzzle are so sturdy and very high quality. I absolutely love the border around this picture! Absolutely perfect for the holidays (or any other time in my opinion. I love puzzles lol). The puzzle resolution looks perfect and so lifelike. I think it is absolutely perfect- everything I expected it to be! And isn't that picture I chose adorable? They live on the beach.... hate them. haha While I'm sitting in the freezing snow- they're in Florida... but I digress!

You can see a TON more of Piczzle's products on their Facebook page and their Youtube page! So if you are in search for that special gift for the person who has absolutely everything- I think this is the way to go!

Even though I know you all went directly to their FB page- I have to show one more holiday design that I just love! That green background is just so festive!

Well.. I know you all are waiting for this.... The fabulous people at Piczzle are giving you the opportunity to win a Small Cardboard Puzzle from their site! Woo Hoo!

**Giveaway Open to US Only**

Hilary Duff, Jessica Alba, and Zooey Deschanel to receive Jewels For Hope Items!

I am very excited to announce that
Hilary Duff
, Jessica Alba and Zooey Deschanel
will each receive a custom Leather Cord Swarovski Crystal Bracelet from Jewels For Hope!

Yep, you read that correctly! I know I have mentioned them before, but The Artisan Group works wonders! They were able to get in contact with the important people that manage these fabulous stars and the group as a whole will send each celeb a swag bag full of goodies!

Jewels For Hope created each celebrity a special bracelet.

For the fabulous Hilary Duff, we created a Saphhire and Aquamarine Swarovski Crystal Leather Cord Bracelet. This bracelet represents her birthstone, her husbands birthstone, and their son to be's birthstone.

For the gorgeous Jessica Alba we created a somewhat of a "mother's bracelet". We designed her bracelet with her two daughter's birthstones- Peridot and Pearl.

For the amazing Zooey Deschanel we did something a little different. A little bit funky. We did incorporate her birthstone of Garnet into the mix- but we also included a ton of different crystals to give it a really "pop" look.

We are so incredibly grateful to have this opportunity to gift our items to such incredible celebs. We are so excited and can't wait to see if we get any feedback from this! Our items will be in these fabulous women's hands the first week of December!

Golden Globes Gift Lounge Prep - Part 2

It has been forever since I have actually written a full on post about what's going on with us! I'm sorry! Please, amazing followers, forgive me. I just can't believe how busy I've been. I haven't had a chance to just relax.

Well, I will show you a little sneak peak of what's been going on here!

The last time I posted about the Golden Globes Gift Lounge, I left you wanting to know about the packaging (or at least that was my goal!). So- wonder no more! Here is it....

I have only done about 40 boxes so far. Out of 100. So I am not even halfway done. But I swear- these boxes take much longer then you think. I like everything to be just perfect. I mean, celebs are getting these. They have to be great!

I put the filler in the box, then our note card that has all our facts on it, put the necklace in a little clear/blue bag, put that in the box- then ribbon and sticker the box! Woo. That'a a lot of work for 100 boxes.

Here's our designs.... I am super proud of the way this looks I cant wait for celebs to see it!

What do you think??????

I absolutely love them! I love the blue and brown combo ribbon from May Arts. Love the specialty made stickers from Zazzle. I love it all!

I'm so proud of my mother and myself. I never would have thought something like this would happen to us. To actually get the opportunity to show off our designs to celebrities. It is such an honor and I am so excited about this. My mom has had a rough 10years (ah!) and she deserves something spectacular to happen for her. I can feel it in my gut, this is it. This is going to be our big moment.

So please keep your fingers and toes crossed for us! And stay tuned! I'll be posting more and more about our journey of preparing for the gift lounge!!! <3

Life's Messy Moments

Sometimes the messiest moments are the ones you will remember forever. I know for me that is sooo the truth!

Now, if you have been following my blog for awhile- you may have come to the conclusion I am a klutz. Yep, I admit it completely. I fall up the stairs, I trip over my own two feet, and sometimes topple over just while standing still. I'm fine with this and love to laugh at these moments.

Well- being such a clumsy person, I tend to have very messy moments. I would love to share one of them with you.....

I'll set the scene for ya. My best friend Paul's house. We were outside on his fabulous deck, playing cards, having a couple of cocktails. Now- I will say I was not at all drunk. I kinda wish I was because when you read the next part of this story you at least can say "oh, she was drunk". Nope. Only had maybe 1-2 drinks.... if that.

Here is Paul's deck. As you can tell from the angle, I was all the way up top and this photo is of my best friends Paul and Carli.

Please take notice of the bottom of the deck. And even though in the photo it looks bright- let me inform you that it is actually very dark out. No lights. This was just the lovely flash from my camera.

Paul warns me once I get to the bottom of the stairs "it's allllll mud. be careful".

My bright idea is to jump over the mud. Don't want to get my shoes dirty or anything. And when you hear "be careful for the mud" you don't really think mud is EVERYWHERE.

 Well..... It was.

Yep. Instead of me jumping over the mud, I decide to jump right into it. Feet flying in the air and me landing on my back. In mud. and dog poo. Did I mention Paul has dogs and yes, I was partly covered in poo?

I will never forget this night. And I highly doubt Paul and Carli will either. Even though I was covered in crap (literally)- I have to say this was one of the best nights I have had. It was hysterical. Me and my best friends laughing uncontrollably over the fact that I was covered in dog crap and mud.
