About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Personalized Book from Hallmark Review & Giveaway!

Anybody that knows Bradley knows that he loves books.  We will check out 15 books at the library, go home and have all 15 books read in an hour.  Children's books are my weakness at the local bookstore.  We feel like we hit jackpot when we score books at yard sales.  You can never have too many books!  

I was so excited to have this opportunity from Hallmark to review their personalized children's book.  And you also have a chance to win a personalized children's book thanks to Hallmark's generosity! 

We have been online shopping so much for baby girl recently that Bradley just assumes that every package delivered to the house is for his sister.  He was so happy to know that a package came in the mail just for him!  He's just now getting into superheros so to see a Batman book with his own name on the cover just made his day!

These personalized books are so easy to order.  Click here to see all the books Hallmark offers.  Personalizing the book is super simple.  Just type in your child's name, who the book is from, click on the the child's hair, eye, skin color, and hair type and then you're done!  It took me longer to figure out what book I wanted to choose....they have so many great options!  The books are very well made, hardcover with beautiful glossy pages that have vibrant colors.  The shipping time was very impressive.  I had the book in less than a week!  These books can make fabulous Christmas presents!

Would you like a chance to win one of these books?  Take a minute to visit Hallmark's website, pick out the book you would want and leave me a comment with the title of the book.  One winner will be chosen on Friday, October 16th to win a free personalized book with free shipping!  Giveaway ends at midnight on Thursday, October 15th.
