New Blog

So, I decided to start a new blog...

I will be keeping this one for reviews, and to relive the journey that it was.
But I felt it was time to get a fresh start.
I would love it if you came over to my blog and followed me there:

Just as an FYI, this blog does mention things like kids, pregnancy and personal info about me.

Many of you have noticed that I have not written in quite a long while. The reasons? The new, CONFUSING blogger format and some recent life events have had me extremely busy. I am currently working on a new blog that centers around my life and it's new changes, but more about that there ;) This blog will still exist and be where I post reviews and giveaways that come my way. Crazily enough I still have reviews that I haven't posted. All of my past reviews and info will stay up and access to this page will continue. I will post my new blog address once I have it up and running. I would really appreciate it if my followers here would follow me there once I post the address and what not. Thanks! :)

My Memories Review and Give Away!!!

A while back I was given the unique opportunity to review My Memories Digital Scrapbooking software.

Before I tell you how great it is, I have to issue a huge thank you to Liz for this awesome opportunity, and for being patient with me as family, work and other issues have kept me from posting this for quite some time.

But I'm here now ready to tell you all about it! :)

After I downloaded the software to computer, I loved that there were tons of FREE features!  The site is easy enough to use for beginning scrapbookers but would be a great resource for devoted digital scrapbooking crafters as well.

I tried out many different free kits. With just having got married in May I spent a lot of time looking at Wedding themes. I also peeked at baby kits for hopefully, future reference ;)  I enjoyed the fact that the free kits are still of great quality for those of us that want to create a great scrapbook without pushing our budget.  Although, the pieces that do cost are fairly inexpensive!

The My Memories Site says it perfectly,

"With over 1,500 papers, over 1,000 page elements, and over 30 album templates (including 10 new for v3), MyMemories Suite lets you hit the ground running with your very own scrapbook or photo album in a matter of minutes. It’s easy-to-use and affordable—and compatible with both Windows and Mac computers. Don’t put off your important memories any longer, add MyMemories Suite to your shopping cart now.
You can make a beautiful scrapbook an interactive memory experience for anyone who sees it. Use simple one-click options to enhance your scrapbooks, with music, narration, video, and even the Internet. Go beyond pictures by showing off video of the birthday party, or record a narration to capture the memories that pictures alone cannot. With My Memories Suite you simply don't look at a scrapbook-you experience it!"

If you can't wait any longer, here's some GREAT news!  My Memories is providing all of my readers with a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store! All you have to do is use this code: STMMMS20835.

Valentine's Day

Growing up, Valentine's Day was one of those holidays I either hated, or I loved. There was no middle ground really. I think that's a girl thing ;)

Two years ago, I got engaged on Valentine's Day. It changed my view of the day forever, obviously! It's still one of my favorite memories.

Now, I'm married and I'm always looking for something special to help continually keep the spark in my marriage and make my husband feel great.

I'm very excited to announce a partnership with EdenFantasys.  Periodically I will be posting blog posts about their company.  I love this site, and I love how great they are with their bloggers and customers. Please be aware that the site may not be work or kid friendly before you click on it!! :)

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

Edenfantasys offers a wide selection of adult toys, lingerie, DVD's and more.  Because my site is family friendly, I will always try to post more "innocent" items, with links to the more fun, risque stuff ;P

Right now, I'm loving all the specials EdenFantasys has going on for Valentine's day. They have a 20% off code site wide on regularly priced items, as well as free Express Delivery on orders over 100 dollars. So you could still get your order in on time for Valentine's Day!!! (Hurry though!)

I'm seriously considering getting this Sweet Heart Strawberry Box for a romantic night in!

I also love that Edenfantasys offers a wide selection of lingerie. They have a great selection of items under $20, plus sized items and of course a great selection devoted to Valentine's Day!
