Sustainable and Renewable Resource Cleaning Solutions

More often than not, products that are the most accessible aren’t always the most eco-friendly.  Or good looking. That’s just the way it’s been for ages.

But the game has changed—with Full Circle’s line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Like scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fiber.

Gift Guide Pick

From a teens point of view, I want to rave about Blamtastic, especially for guys.  Fill up the stockings with these for your teen guys! 

Lip Balm for guys…who cares?  Well they do, but they’ll probably never admit it, and chances are when you go to the store, most all of the lip balm products on the shelf are “girly”.

Five reasons why your male teens will want to find Blamstastic in their stockings:

Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse Giveaway

Many people with auto-immune disorders are in need of an ergonomic mouse, that can help make working on a computer more comfortable.  Many jobs require people to be at their computers all day long, or even if you're blogger like I am, I tend to be on the computer about 1/2 of my day.  It's hard on my hands since I have an auto-immune disorder called Raynaud's.  My fingers, thumbs and lower palms can be sore or even numb by the end of the day.  Using an ergonomic mouse helps the pain when used regularly.

Cosmic

Gift Guide Pick

Funny, witty, and ingenious.  All of these words can be used to describe Cosmic, a book written by Frank Cottrell Boyce.  The word 'cosmic' could also be used to describe Cosmic, in light of the fact the main character often uses the word in the place of 'awesome'.  Which is exactly what this story is.

We start off in the world of Liam Digby, a twelve year old boy who finds himself wandering in space in a rocket with the earth nowhere in sight.  He's talking to his cell-phone, trying to make sense of what's happening, and eventually delves into an explanation of how he got there.

Stocking Stuffer–Lovable Labels (Giveaway)

Gift Guide Pick

Christmas is just 5 weeks away, and you might be nearly finished with your shopping or just barely started!  I find the last things I get around to are the stocking stuffers, because I don’t just want them to be ‘fillers’, but something my family will find useful.  Now is the time to order if you are looking for a personalized product for those stockings.

Lovable Labels are an excellent stocking stuffer and a practical gift.  Their labels can be attached to just about anything, and by using labels (especially on your children’s items) you can save money, by not having to replace items that would otherwise end up lost.

Do You Love To Bake?  

I am still trying to get my head around the fact that it’s the middle of November!  Anyone else wondering how the days have passed so fast?!

There are a lot of people (including me), pulling out their recipes, to start their holiday baking.  I had a bit of a head start, since last week I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!  sent me a culinary kit to push me in the right direction.  Included in the kit was a packet of recipes, one of which was a cookie recipe, which I tweaked for our family, and seriously it is chocolate overload .

Switched-On Schoolhouse: A Midpoint Review

I write the Switched-On Schoolhouse Series twice a month to share our family's experience using this software based curriculum in our home.

Choosing or changing curriculum for your homeschool can often leave you second guessing on whether you’re making the right choice. 

I truly believe there is no perfect curriculum out there.  Whether it be in the public school, private school or the choices you have for homeschooling.

That’s why it’s best to gather as much information as you can, and know how your children learn, before diving into a purchase you might not be happy with.  This is one of the reasons why Alpha Omega Publishing, has enlisted some homeschool bloggers to talk about their experiences with the curriculums they produce.  Not just from one post or review, but over a course of many months of using it.

Okay I know it may seem strange after just getting myself a bread machine that I’m writing a post on behalf of Pillsbury for their popular Simply… line.

I know!).  Pillsbury Simply…Biscuits & Bread are the perfect solution for us moms, who have busy days, and still want to serve something with home-baked taste, even when they are only thinking about dinner about 30 minutes before they need to get it on the table!

Jotters and Other Gifts & Goodies at Night Owl Paper Goods (Giveaway)

Gift Guide Pick

You know, paper goods don’t really get the recognition they deserve.  They’re something most of us still use everyday even if we have a netbook, pda, or smart phone.  Notes to the teacher, shopping lists, holiday cards, are so much more expressive then e-mails or text messages.  There’s just something special about a tangible product that you can handwrite upon.
