Won Gideon’s Gift & Do not open

Image
The last week or so, I received 2 great books from winning bloggy contests!

The first one, which was like forever ago & I am such a slacker was Gideon's Gift from the wonderful Oh Amanda (love her blog, check it out). I can't wait to get a chance to read this book. She was so nice, she had it sent brand new straight from Amazon & even gift wrapped with a card. I wish I would have snapped a picture!

Then the other day I get a package & had no idea what it was. Opened it & it was that awesome book Do Not Open. I am embarrassed to say, I have no idea where I won it from, lol. I am thrilled though because I am giving it to my 10 year old for Christmas. I have been struggling with what to buy her & how to come up with $$$ to do that, so this was a wonderful surprise!

Now if I could just win The Daring Book for Girls, I'd be set :) Or actually a bunch of $$$$

Kids Crafts Weekly

I just found this cute little craft site today & wanted to share, Kids Craft Weekly. It looks like they send out newsletters & the few I have looked at I like. When I have the time I want to go through them all. I subscribed to the newsletters also. The site is free, but they do take donations.

The mom is in Australia & each newsletter is a theme, very cute!

If you have little ones check it out :)

Gift Idea: Digital Cameras

Image
Digital cameras were the number one requested electronic gift for last years holiday season. They are sure to be just as popular this year. More and more people are branching off into the digital age, including kids! Last spring I bought a Canon Powershot S3 and just love it. I chickened out of getting the Digital Rebel and opted to get something similar but still had tons of features. I use my camera almost every day. I love being able to capture tons of pictures without worrying about running out of film or waiting to actually see the photo I took. I use my camera to capture my kids daily life more then ever, plus milestones, holidays, dance class, etc. I also take many more nature pictures with my digital, then I did with my film. Too worried about wasting my film. Another feature my camera has that I love is being able shoot digital video. I use this all the time & have gotten some really great videos. Our library holds quite a bit of events, one time Aly got p…

A lot of people travel during the holiday season. If you are planning on a vacation, you should check out Trusted Tours and Attractions. Right now, if you sign up for their newsletter, you are entered to win 4 free tickets to attractions and tours in one of 21 different cities. Offer ends Friday, December 14th, 2007.

Trusted Tours and Attractions offers discounted tickets to the best sightseeing tours in Key West, San Diego and Savannah.

I personally have always wanted to visit Savannah. Being known for their history and architecture it has always been on my wish list of places to visit. My biggest reason though is for their famous Ghost Tours that they offer. On the Ghost Tour they tell you about local legends, house hauntings, peculiar sightings, plus learn why it is one of America's most haunted city. There is also a Ghosts and Gravestones tour which sounds amazingly fun!

Come aboard if you dare, for an evening excursion through the darker side of Am…

Tween Girl Gift Ideas

Image
I've been struggling with what to buy my 10 year old daughter. I have a bunch of little things for my 6 year old since she is still really into toys, but my 10 year old is growing out of that phase. I decided to start scouring the internet & wanted to share what I have come up with so far.

The main things she does want is Webkinz, I have been watching for deals on Ebay, check out Webkinz on Ebay. Watch the shipping charges though especially if you buy more then one. I bought 8 from 1 seller, the Webkinz came to $21.xx & I was charged just under $37 for shipping! Yep, crazy huh. It was a 2.4 lb package using free priority box & no packing material at all. Then I was shorted 1, but it is supposed to be coming this week {crossing fingers} I have bought some from some wonderful fair sellers though, so just keep an eye on the shipping & if you buy more then one, ask for a specific quote before bidding. I just asked if they combine, & when they said yes made …
