Both of those designs above were made using one of FotoJet’s templates. I just switched out backgrounds, fonts, colors, graphics etc. It was a lot of fun and I could easily undo anything I did not like.

Amazon Prints is REALLY worth the try! $1000 of Amazon Gift Cards to be Won! #AmazonPrints

Wow, graduations, weddings, Father’s Day and so much more. It truly is picture-taking season. I love taking photos and I wear my camera like a fashion accessory. I am always on the lookout for new services to print my photos,  so I was very intrigued when I learned about Amazon’s new photo printing service called, Amazon Prints

Have you heard about it? If not, let me tell you about some of the great perks. Prime members can upload images to their Prime Photos account, print whatever photos they want and get free delivery. Prime members also get unlimited photo storage! If you are not a Prime member, you can still get 5 GB of storage free on Prime Photos and be able to print your favorite photos. Prices for prints start as low as $0.09.

I am a Prime member so I am super stoked about using Amazon Prints. I used to use another photo printing service and if you did not order regularly they got rid of your photos in storage. That was a real pain. I like that I can store my photos, as many of my photos without worrying about them being deleted.

I can do more than print photos with Amazon Prints, I can create all kinds of photo gifts. It is so easy to make photo calendars, wall decor, more than just prints, photo books, cards, photo books and much more. I really find this to be very convenient and easy and that is something I appreciate, because my time is valuable.

Now for some more great news! You can enter the giveaway below for your chance to win an Amazon Gift Card! There are $1000 of Gift Cards to be won!

This Safer, Healthier Crib Mattress Will Let You & Your Baby Breathe Easier! #Giveaway

There have been so many changes in how we put our babies to sleep. When I had my oldest, it was unheard of to put a baby to sleep on their back. A few kids later, it was suddenly unsafe for them to sleep on their belly. As soon as baby starts to roll, they will sleep however they choose, so it really gives me peace of mind to have a safer mattress. One that baby can breathe through like the Newton Baby Wovenaire® Crib Mattress.

Air flows easily through the Newton Wovenaire® Crib Mattress. With no foam, latex or adhesives, the Wovenaire Crib Mattress is hypoallergenic, free of off gassing and completely washable. You can use muslin sheets as well as purchase additional mattress covers from Newton Baby.

Check out my video below to learn more.

If you are a clean freak like me, you will love that  you can completely wash away mold and bacteria for a fresher, more hygienic crib. The Wovenaire® Crib Mattress’s design gives it a unique longevity. Firm enough for your littlest but cushy enough for your growing toddler. Plus, with its ability to be washed down to the core for a sleep that’s fresh like new, Newton is a hand-me-down you can feel good about.

Discover “The Explorers: The Door in the Alley” Book & #Giveaway

If you are looking for a great summer read for your 8-12 year old, check out this great book that arrived, hot off the presses, on April 25th! The Explorers: The Door In The Alley features a mysterious society, a secretive past, and a pig in a teeny hat.

This book by Adrienne Kress is the first book in a new middle-grade series for fans of The Name of This Book Is Secret, The Mysterious Benedict Society, and Series of Unfortunate Events. It doesn’t take more than a few pages to see why film rights have already been optioned by Disney!

The Explorers: The Door In The Alley is filled with adventure and danger. There are missing persons, hired thugs, a hidden box, a lost map, famous explorers, a risk-averse boy, and a girl on a mission. Not to mention secrets not meant for the faint of heart. But if you are feeling bold, or maybe even a little italic, and if you enjoy derring-dos (and doing dares), this just might be the story for you.

Adrienne Kress is a writer and an actress born and raised in Toronto. She is the daughter of two high school English teachers and credits them with her love of both writing and performing. She also has a cat named Atticus, who unfortunately despises teeny hats. Look for her online at AdrienneKress.com, and follow her on Twitter at @AdrienneKress.

This book is available on Amazon but you can enter to win a copy below.

Humor, Heart, Loss, Triumph, Friendship, Family, and Love Come Together on the Pages of “LEMONS”– #Giveaway

I am sure you are probably familiar with the saying; “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” That is the something that 9-year old Lemonade Liberty Witt’s mama always told her. While Lem would like to do just that, it seems impossible that she could ever make lemonade out of moving to Willow Creek, California.

Willow Creek is a tiny town filled with tall pines instead of skyscrapers, and a Bigfoot lurking in the woods. Lem wanted to stay in San Francisco after her mama died with her friends, school and everything she loved. Instead, she was forced to go and live with the grandfather she never even met. 

Things seem pretty bad but then Lem meets 11-year-old Tobin Sky, the CEO of Bigfoot Detectives Inc., who is the sole Bigfoot investigator for their small town. After he invites Lem to be his assistant for the summer, the two set out on an epic adventure to capture the elusive creature on film.

In the end, Lem and Tobin’s big discovery ends up being more earth-shattering than they ever dreamed. Best of all, Lem learns that maybe she can make lemonade out of her new life after all. 

Humor, heart, loss, triumph, friendship, family, and love all come together to create the pages of LEMONS.

 About The Author:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book is written by debut author Melissa Savage, a writer and a child and family therapist. This is a classic middle grade novel in the vein of Kate DiCamillo, Rebecca Stead, and Patricia Reilly Giff. Her desire to write purposeful, issue-driven books for young people, coupled with her interest in cryptozoology and the mystery of Bigfoot, inspired her to write LemonsSet during the summer of 1975 in California, this is one of those novels that you want to immediately read again after finishing. Savage wrote LEMONS partly to overcome her own grief after losing her son at the age of 9 months in 2012.

The Tobin character in the book is named after her own son because she wanted him to remain a part of this world. The character Tobin is what she imagined her son would grow up to be. Stoic and brave, as he was, but also scientific like his dad and as big a fan of Bigfoot and cryptozoology as his mommy! Melissa knows that losing someone you love is an extremely tough lemon, as Lem experiences in the story and she struggles with how to make lemonade again.  For Melissa sharing her son’s name and spirit with children all over the world is one of the ways she has learned to make her own lemonade. You can read an excerpt HERE.

When asked what she hopes readers take away with them after reading Lemons, Melissa answered, “Hope, first and foremost.” She wants them to know that there is hope and healing in the world, even after dealing with tough lemons, if you choose it and surround yourself with gratitude and people who love you. She also hopes that readers will take away a renewed acceptance of those who are different from them. Lastly, she adds, ” A newfound interest in cryptozoology!” You can learn more about Melissa HERE.
