Book Review:

One of my favorite LDS authors Chris Heimerdinger recently released his latest book, "Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul.". I read it, enjoyed it and Chris asked me to review it for his website. Here is the link to that review:

Christmas Trees! WFMW

So I know Christmas was yesterday, but my Granddaughter and I did this really cute activity over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you.  Last year we made Gingerbread Houses and it was fun, but a lot of work and short attention span. So this year we decided to make "Christmas Trees."

Super easy, Super fun and the length of the activity was great for a 6 year old.
First I gathered up our supplies. Mostly the same things you would use for a gingerbread house, but we used sugar cones instead.

Supplies

 
I whipped up some frosting, and set the cones out:


I frosted all the cones, these are the "Christmas Trees":


I made one tree before my granddaughter arrived so she would have an example to follow:

 


Then we had fun building our Christmas Tree forest:

Our finished Forest:

It was a great bonding time with my Angel!
and that's what works for me:)

Christmas gifts for guys!


Do you have someone on your Christmas list that you are having a hard time figuring out what to get them? Probably the man in your life?

How about giving him what he needs, instead of trying to guess-- new Tshirts and underwear right?

 

Jockey recently launched a brand new line of men’s slim fit underwear and T-shirts. The underwear and T-shirts are available in 100% cotton and cotton-stretch fabrics along with unique stay dry fabric that helps pull moisture away from the skin so he stays dry and his clothes stay looking good.

 

Through December 31, 2012, Jockey Slim Fit styles are 25% OFF at all Kohl’s department stores – no coupon needed to save. Doesn't that sound like the perfect stocking stuffer?

Works for Me Wednesday-- messes

It's a crazy time of year isn't it?  One quick way I help keep the chaos under control is to always clean up a mess as soon as it's made. I made a lot of cookies last week and while the last batch was in the oven, I loaded the dishwasher, wiped the counters and swept the floor. When the cookies came out of the oven, all I had to do was set them on a plate to cool, clean the pans and I was done. It was a great feeling.

Get in the habit of NOT walking away from a mess. It will only take a moment to clean up and you will feel better in the long run.

That's what works for me!

"Singin' in the Rain" and "Sound of Music" on Blu-ray starting at 53% OffSingin' in the Rain" and "Sound of Music" on Blu-ray starting at 53% Off

If you missed the Halo 4 Black Friday deal, Amazon is again offering Halo 4 for Xbox 360 for $39.99 + FREE $10 Amazon Instant Video credit.

Remember that it’s the last day to share your holiday gift list for $5 off a $25 purchase at Amazon.

 
Staples is offering FREE Duracell Batteries after Staples Rewards every week through December 29th. This is a great way to stock up on batteries for holiday toys and gifts, or just to put some aside to save yourself money in 2013! This offer is only in-store, so look for the 16packs of AA or AAA Duracell Batteries.
So that means that each week, you can buy two packs of AA or AAA Duracell Batteries and get the purchase price back in Staples Rewards next January. I have been doing this for several years and it is a wonderful deal. I usually give each of my boys there own pack of batteries for there own use. Leave mom's alone! LOL! 

If your family is a big battery user then pay attention:  There’s now a printable Duracell Batteries Rebate that stacks with this deal. When you spend $100 on Duracell products by December 31, you get a $25 gift card with this printable rebate form. You’ll need your original receipts, and you can either email or fax your rebate to Duracell. Great way to make an extra bit of cash!

WFMW- personalized ornaments

I like to give my family ornaments every year. Some years I buy them, but this year I made them.

Here's what I did:


I took plain glass ornaments and popped off the top:





Took some floor cleaner and glitter and poured a bit of the liquid cleaner into the glass globe.



I swished it around and then dumped it into the next globe. I then took the first globe and dumped a bit of glitter into that and swished it around. I repeated this until all ornaments had been swished with glitter.



My final product:















I then decided to add names. I used my Cricut to cut out names and modpodged them on!
This one is for my son Josh:




I like the way they turned out- especially for a cost of $.075 each!

Friday- Make some holiday cash!

Happy Friday!


Remember its MegaSwagbucks day. Don’t forget to do all your searches with Swagbucks to earn those digital dollars! I save mine and get Amazon gift cards, which I then save for the holidays!  It’s easy to get at least 3 Swagbucks a day! Do the daily poll, and the NOSO (no obligation, special offers)  I also have a window open were I have the videos playing. I can earn 3 Swagbucks for every 10 videos watched! - Super easy to rack up bucks this way!
thanks for signing up under my referral link!

Another way I earn easy Amazon gift cards is by using Irazoo. Very similar to Swagbucks. I do a few searches everyday and have won anything from 15 points to 74 points. I also watch videos - watch the first 40 seconds of a video equals 1point. I also have a window open in the background with these videos running. I also check the offer boards and see if there is anything there easy, free and quick todo. This is where I can rack up the most points. I can easily earn 3000+ points in a month and that equals $5 Amazon Card. thanks for signing up under my referral link!
