Praises of a Wife and Mommy is helping promote this giveaway! I did review the snack shack earlier this year and still love so I hope one of my lucky readers will win this giveaway. :) You can read my review on the snack shack, HERE!
Free is for Me recently had the opportunity to work with Build A Dream Playhouse and review one of their awesome playhouses! I was so inspired by this product even before I received it in the mail by reading their story on line. Anytime, we are able to review something locally manufactured (Cleveland, Ohio.. GO BROWNS!) and that is eco-friendly kinda makes my heart sing! If that isn't awesome enough this toy is actually good old American fun.. you know the kind that requires a little imagination and creativity... the toys that this generation seem to be lacking!
Carl Sagan once said, "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere!". In a world that it is motivated by media our kids are bombarded by stimulation on all sides and it is so refreshing to find something that takes the remote control, game controller, or the keyboard out of their hands and have them start using their brains for more than technology but for imagination! To read my full review of the fun my family had with the Dream Machine go HERE.
Thanks to the kindness of Build A Dream Playhouse they are giving one of Free is for Me's Fans a chance to win one of their products!! How awesome is that!! They are offering to one winner your choice of either the Cosmic Cruiser or the Dream Machine (pictured above)!! Either one of them would make any little boy or girl's day!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
