Giant Microbes Review and Giveaway
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
I know some of you are probably scratching your head wondering why you would want to know what the common cold or any other virus for that matter looked like if it was blown up.
For any of you wondering whats up, let me just remind you of the power of our words. Proverbs 18:21- Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. I firmly believe that as truth! So with knowing that truth I also think taking it a step further and punching the "common cold" might be therapeutic when your nose is stuffed, throat scratchy, cough barky, and just can't get the rest you need. How nice would it be to look at your giant microbe and stomp on it and tell it to go away??
Giant Microbes has every imaginable disease out there! I was sent the common cold and cancer. I truly think the cancer one would be a great gift for anyone battling the disease. They can turn the icky cancer back into a healthy white blood cell. It would be such a neat tool to bring along to any chemo appointment. These plush microbes would be great for any science or biology teacher. It would also be great for hospitals to start to carry these Giant Microbes for patients, to see.
The icky and scary looking cancer virus has a neat zipper mouth so you can turn the cancer cell back into the healthy white blood cell.
So do you know someone battling a disease? Pick them up a Giant Microbe and get them back on track to feeling good.
I would have loved to give the cancer gift to my mom when she was battling leukemia. It would have been a great visual for her to change the icky cancer cell back into a healthy white blood cell. Currently my daughter and I are raising funds for Light the Night 2013 for Leukemia and Lymphoma. To hear more about my story follow this link: http://pages.lightthenight.org/mn/TwinCiti13/AFlanigan

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
