Hallmark Review and Giveaway

 Christmas is by far my favorite time of year. We put up our tree as soon as we have filled our bellies with turkey. Like many families our Holiday Season is filled with many traditions and as long as I can remember Hallmark has been a part of those traditions. It was a really big honor for me to be able to review some of their new products this season and share them with my fans. The first product is part of our favorite tradition by far. Every year our family buys a new ornament for our tree. The North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament is an exciting new add for us. On December 1st we will start our countdown with the exciting lights, sounds, and motion every evening before bed.The next product I received is promised to be a new and fun tradition in my house. The book "A Visit to the North Pole" is a fun, interactive story book that my kids are really enjoying.Of course reading together is always a great joy but they think it is amazing to hear the book ask them questions. This book is so cute because it takes a fun, well illustrated approach to explaining just how Santa and his elves make Christmas happen. If you are looking for a new Christmas book to share with your loved ones I highly recommend this book! Lastly we reviewed one of the items I know Hallmark best for, CHRISTMAS CARDS. I love how original yet personal every card is and I hope that the two people I select to send these cards to are over joyed when they receive these cards, or maybe I'll just keep the snow globe for myself ;o).
Hallmark has been gracious enough to offer a giveaway to my amazing fans! The giveaway package includes:
            o   A selection of the newest Signature and Interactive Greetings from Hallmark

*I received the above mentioned products in order to write this review. All view expressed are that of my own and were in no way influenced.*

Favorite tradition is coming home from late Christmas Eve mass and making a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies for "Santa". My brothers and sisters and I now do this with our families.

I love Hallmark products! Our tradition is celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas together so for Christmas we make cookies together, and for Hanukkah we play dreidel and other games each night.

Painting Christmas cookies, decorating the tree, singing Christmas Carols, or setting out the painted cookies for Santa (it's a whole ritual thing). Those are my top few favorites. :)

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
