Holiday Cards your life can actually deal with + PayPal #giveaway #ad

Last year I went through the whole portrait studio process and ordered 100 photo cards. We waited for an hour for them to be printed (which I thought was pretty fast) and I took them home. Since it was just September, the cards went right into the office cabinet….where they still sit to this day. That’s right, I have 100 photo cards from last year that were never mailed. Why? The reasons are many….never got around to stuffing the envelopes, addressing the envelopes, or mailing them.  Why didn’t anyone tell me about Minted?  Don’t worry, friend  I’ve got the details about holiday cards for you!  [Read more…]

Memorial Day decor does double-duty for Independence Day

Memorial Day is almost here.  This year is the first time I’ll be putting memorial arrangements out for a veteran.  My father and grandfather both passed away last year, and they were military veterans. I will take time to remember their service during the holiday.  If you’re gearing up to put out patriotic decor, consider using it again for Independence Day.  I always love getting a 2-for-1 deal, don’t you?  The DollarTree has lots of Memorial Day decorations that are both affordable and adorable.  [Read more…]

DIY Chanukah dessert kits available from Manischewitz

Disclosure: We received three sample kits. Opinions shared are mine.

Our family celebrates Christmas each year. While we don’t go all out with bells and whistles (a Christmas tree and some fudge marked the holiday for us this year), many families do many Christmas crafts and prepare baked goods just for the holiday.  Some people opt for ways to make the traditions a bit easier on the time schedule and budget.  For instance, a gingerbread house might seem like a daunting task but a premade kit could simplify the process.  It never occurred to me that those who celebrate other holidays, such as Hanukkah, would want similar convenience kits.  For example,  Manischewitz offers fun, delicious interactive kits that make a DIY Chanukah project possible.
