Artistic Letters Review



Artistic Letters is Alphabet Photography. If you've never heard of this before It's definitely time to check it out. 

Jodi Gerber of ArtisticLetters has created an entire catalog of black & white letter images throughout the past 3 years – all by taking photos of objects in nature that resembled letters of the alphabet. She recently decided to offer her ENTIRE catalog of 400+ letter images to the public on CD or Download so that anyone could create their own designs!   It’s a truly original way to make artwork for your home - or even for scrapbooking, greeting cards, and digital designs consisting of wedding invitations, baby’s birth, etc.).  Endless possibilities for whatever the mind can imagine!  There’s even a new tutorial with step by step instructions on how to create projects with her letters using free software.

She sent me along her download file of all her letters and left me to do some of my own images. I use Paint.net for my editing and this is what I've come up with


In her download file there was about 5-6 of each letter.

I can do so much with this. I LOVE using them and I'm so glad I have the file because I will be using these often!! 
So far these are the only images I've come up with but I've been so busy. 

They were super easy to use. I got the file and they were zipped, so I extracted all the files and then saved them as images in their own folder. Now they're always there and I can easily use them for projects. 

Jodi teamed up with me and is offering my readers Exclusive Discounted Pricing of up to $6 Off!  Please visit her website www.BuyAlphabetPhotos.com and browse the images, testimonials, and ideas. 
Then check out the Exclusive Pricing and Freebie by clicking on This Link.  


This link is only accessible here for my readers – you won’t be able to find it on her website.  ;-)

Tropical Traditions Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I wonder how many great things I'm going to get from Tropical Traditions. I've probably reviewed 7-8 things now and only found one bad one (Coconut Peanut Butter), that's just because it wasn't our style. Not because it was BAD. Just not for us.

This time I received some Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens in the Berry Flavor
It also comes in Mint Flavor.
I asked for these just before finding out I was pregnant. I wasn't so sure I could use it, so I asked my dr. a few weeks later and he said he didn't see the harm in having about 3 drinks a week. He didn't want me to do more than that.

These greens are very beneficial. They have tons of vitamins and minerals in them. Which is one reason he ok-ed it was because baby could always use more vitamins.
It comes with a scoop inside. You take one scoop and mix it with 8oz of water. I started off by doing about 3/4 of a scoop just in case. And it was good just like that. Didn't taste watered down at all, but it was even better once I tried the full scoop.

This tastes just like berries. It has a hint of that 'healthy' flavor to it, but it's not off putting at all. Jon really seems to like it too.

With 2600mg of Flax in it... it's VERY healthy. Was great for me a few weeks ago when things weren't as 'regular' as they should have been. The flax seemed to really help!!


Very healthy and good for you. Greens, flax, veggies, antioxidants! YUM

Price: 13.7 oz canister is $38.99 on sale. This is a bit pricey... Especially if you have one daily. But like all their stuff, it's completely worth it!

Overall: *****

Jilly bo Billy Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I love finding new and cute items for Avery. They are all over but sometimes items just stick out to me and I need to have them for her.

Jilly bo Billy was no exception. I loved everything in their Boutique. Gorgeous items.
I was sent an item from Fig Organic to review. I received the Mongoose Swallow Dress and I absolutely love it!

It has ties on the side so you can make it tighter and make it look like a bubble dress or you can leave them loose and let it hang down more like a regular dress. 
I really like this dress though. It's organic so it's super duper soft and very comfortable for Avery. It's not a typical color I would choose but I love it none the less. 

She hasn't really gotten a chance to wear this dress yet as it's too warm here. But I'm sure once it starts getting cooler she'll get lots of use out of it. 
I have washed it twice though and it hasn't shrunk at all and the image hasn't peeled off at all. So I'm happy about that.

There's a ton of cute items at Jilly bo Billy!
Price: The Dress I received is normally $49.95 but is on sale for $14.99 right now!!!

Simple Green Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Ahh, it was kind of nice to take a short little break there and not have to post anything. But now I need to get back to reality and get my butt back in gear!

To bring you back from my slight disappearance I am bringing you another review and giveaway from Simple Green. I've reviewed their original cleaner and their Naturals Line in the past, but this time I received a new product called Bio Dog. That just tells you how long I've had this product and how far behind I am in doing my reviews. We got rid of Bella just about one month ago. We got this product before then.
She actually sent me two because I waited so long for them. So that was great!!
Bella had a recurrent UTI issue. She was constantly going in the house. I think she was mostly lazy, but whatever. We had stains EVERYWHERE. Plus we have light beige carpet and it's crappy carpet so it was matted down and it made them show much worse then they were (I think).

Well Bio Dog was a great lifesaver. It would work on the little stains immediately. You spray it on and wait for it to dry. The big stains you spray it on and cover it with a white towel or paper towel and wait for it to dry. The towel soaks up the stain.
I didn't cover the big stains with a towel at first and after one treatment they were significantly lighter. BUT I didn't use the towel method.

The little stains would be gone immediately after it was dry. It worked on those no problem. And it helped get rid of some stink. I went through one bottle in one day. I just sprayed away. Luckily we have another bottle left and they're good for any stains/odor issue. So it's great to have on hand.

Here's the thing. Our carpet was SO BAD that we had to call Stanley Steemer. They came out the day after we got rid of Bella. I coudn't stand to look at the carpet anymore, and honetly I don't think any cleaner would have fully got rid of these stains.
I'm being brave here. Bear with me.
In my defense. We have a bissell pet carpet cleaner BUT it would clean the carpet, water would be black and all, but it never got rid of the stain. Plus the hair was outrageous. So we had to call a professional. They did our whole house clean and sanitize for $110!!
Even they didn't permanently get rid of the stains. They have reappeared. BUT they're very mild and they sanitized and the carpet is clean, so I'm okay with that. Big difference though right? And you see why we called a professional in. 

You can see that good size stain in the middle there I sprayed the middle of it with Simple Green. You can see where it is whiter in the middle. Our carpet needed to be cleaned anyway. We had been here over 3 years and it had never been done professionally. They did the whole house and it's just better in here.

Price: The 32oz Bottle is $9.99 I think this is worth it!

Overall: ***** It worked like a charm!

GIVEAWAYSimple Green has offered one Mommy Of 1 and Counting reader the chance to win your choice of Bio Dog, Oxy Dog or Cat cleaner. If you're not sure which to choose go with Bio Dog! It's great for any stain or odor.

All Things Baby Blog Bash Spotlight: My True Nature & Review



We have finally made it to our last Spotlight for the All Things Baby Blog Bash event!! WooHoo! I can finally get my regular reviews back on track!
Along the road of Eco Friendly and natural items for baby comes My True Nature.

We received Travel Set which included a 4oz Bubble Bath and a 4oz Shampoo/Body Wash. So far we really like them.

Okay, the bubble bath is gone. We used that one up lickity split. But the Shampoo/Body wash is still going strong. We like to switch things up.

The bubble bath was great. It bubbled like crazy. A few drops put plenty of bubbles in the tub for Avery. The shampoo/body wash is really great for a double cleanser. I actually tried it in her hair too and really liked it. Usually I use a 2-in-1 just on her body as it doesn't really work for her hair, but this one certainly did. And it lathered up very nicely in both the hair and the washcloth. Cleaned nicely too.

They both had a nice gentle scent.

My True Nature has lots of other things too. They have lotion, Hand soap, Hooded Towels, and books too.

Price: The Travel Set is $13. Which is reasonable.

Overall: ***** 

All Things Baby
For All Things Baby My True Nature has offered a reader the same Gift Set I received

Beanstalk Express Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Sometimes as a parent you get caught up in the moment of things and somethings you forget a child's snack right?
I know I do all the time. Avery doesn't really come up to me to say she's hungry, but since I know we should snack every 4-6 hours kids should probably ever 2 or so.

I need to set times when she gets her snacks and it's hard when I'm blogging, or folding laundry, or doing dishes. I get caught up and the next time I look at the time it's almost Lunch time! I feel bad for her

When I came across Beanstalk Express I knew I had to contact her immediately for her Snacktime Survival Kit.
It came in the mail
I can't find the pictures! I hate when that happens

You set the time to what it is now,so it's a working clock. And then you set the snack times on the little clocks below. Then you let your child choose their snacks for the day. I usually just pull out a few and let Avery choose, things that are easy that we have on hand. 

On the back of the cards, it says how to make it, and it's also color coded. Green means go for it, it's super healthy. Yellow means caution do these like once a week as they are more processed and red is NO like candy and chips etc. 

So I let Avery choose her snacks, and I set the time. We do 2 snacks in a day because she sleeps so long and snack time depends on when she wakes up and gets her breakfast.
USUALLY though snacks are at about 12 and 4:30. That's about it. 
She naps from 3-4:30ish, when she wakes up she gets some grapes or something like that. Then dinner is at 6-7. 

But I love this system. She is learning how to tell time and that when the little clock matches the big clock it's snack time. She's been letting me know when to eat and that's been making me take a break to prepare her snack. Everything has been going great. She's getting fed enough nutrients and she's grazing rather than eating 3 big meals, which is better for metabolism. 

We eat pretty healthy food around here too. I've even made a few of my own paper cards for her, like just grapes, or grapes with crackers. A few things that they don't have on the cards that I know she likes. 
It's a nice variety too so she's not eating the same snack 3 days in a row. But I do let her choose which helps her have some independence. This is a great system all around and we love it!

Price: The whole system which includes 33 snack cards and the clock and right now it's on summer special for $39.95 it's normally $49.95. I really think this is worth it. 

Overall: ***** Love this system. Another one of those "why didn't I think of it first" products!

All Things Baby Blog Bash Spotlight: Sweetsation Therapy & Review



I love finding all natural products for Avery and I will continue to do so for this next child too. All natural are way better than all those chemical filled alternatives. Like Sunscreen. Did you know that your sunscreen could cause you to have a Vitamin D deficiency, which if you have the cancer cells in your body already could speed up cancer significantly? Well using natural sunscreen prevents this. I have thrown away all my Banana Boat sunscreen and have been using Avery's. It's better for me and her.

Sweetsation Therapy is a great website for Organic/Natural Baby and Pregnancy items. We received a few samples from them and we love them all. 
We got a full Size SPF50 Sun'n'Berry Fun Organic Baby Sunscreen and love it. The smell is AMAZING and it seems to work.

We also got one of the Orange Dreamsicle Shampoo/Body Wash for babies. Which Avery also loves. I use it on her body only since her hair is too thick for this All in One. But if there's any left over I can't wait to use it on #2. It smells heavenly. 

And samples of the Yummi Tummi Choco Butter. It's like a lotion, but more like the butters you can buy for yourself. And it smells like chocolate!
Also a sample of the Very Berry Oxygen Masque and Scrub for me. 

The Scrub for me was divine. I used it all up though. It was so yummy. You can either put it on and rinse like a scrub, or put it on and let it dry like a mask. I tried both ways and loved them both equally. Although I love how my face feels after a masque.

The Choco Butter I haven't used yet. Avery has eczema and has very sensitive skin. If she needs lotion I use cetaphil because it's very gentle on her skin. So we've avoided this one, but it does smell just like chocolate. 

The Body wash like I said is yum as well.It smells just like those Orange Creamsicles you can buy. They are so good and so is this wash. Avery likes the smell of it. It lathers up very nicely and seems to get the job done.

And I love the smell of the Sunscreen. We've used this many times now and every time is just as good as the first. I always forget to apply to my shoulders (which have been burnt TWICE this summer already), but I use this on my face and love it. Since it's right up there I get to smell it the whole time and it's just yummy. 

All of her products are made with natural and/or organic ingredients. She has sunscreens for adults and many many other things for adults and children alike. Just some great stuff. 

Price: The 3.5oz Sunscreen I received is $22. This is a bit much, but it's worth it. It's the only one you'd need to buy all summer and the whole family can use it. I think that's better than an $8 tube for the baby and an $8 tube for the children and a $9 tube for the adults. Right? It's all in one... 

Overall: ***** Love all the products.

All Things Baby Blog Bash Spotlight: Aden+Anais & Review



I can absolutely not wait until this baby gets here. Why do they have to wait 40(ish) weeks?? Why oh Why... I'm almost 13 now so I'm getting closer very fast too I might add. But I can't wait to use my Aden+Anais classic swaddling blankets.

I have so many blankets for this baby already, but I remember with Avery you can NOT have too many blankets. You just can't!! I will still need to get a couple winter ones since I'm due the end of December (brr) but I'm good on lightweight ones I think.

I received the Wishing Star Classic Swaddle and I love these patterns. I love the polka dots and the stripes.
Pack of 4!
 A very generous size
 On Avery's doll

These are very big swaddling blankets. They measure 47" square which is awesome. The average swaddling blanket is 30" square. Yes Aden+Anais are a whole 17" larger around!!! How AWESOME is that?

These are a muslin material. They are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I think this is fantastic. They are thin and lightweight. They won't take up much room in the diaper bag, car or washing machine. They are machine washable which is great too. We all know that babies spit up and well... other end stuff so that is fantastic.

They have some great colors to choose from. They come in a 2pk and a 4pk. They also have many other collections to choose from, like Organic, Cozy which is a double layer of muslin, and Bamboo. They also carry other things like Hooded Towels and washcloths, Baby Sleeping Bags and Bibs and Burp Cloths!! So lots to choose from.

Price: The 4pk is $49.95 might seem high, but how much is 1 receiving blanket in the store? A good $8-$10 right? Well this is bigger and a better material, and it's only $12.48 each!! So it's not that much more!!

Overall: ***** LOVE these and can't wait to use them

All Things Baby
For All Things Baby Aden+Anais has offered one reader the chance to win a 4pk of Classics in your choice of print!

My theme is All Things Baby as most know. I still have 3 spotlights to write by Tomorrow Night! I will get them all done!
The Blog Bash starts at 12:00AM Wednesday morning the 22nd. There are 150 blogs participating and it ends at 11:59PM Sunday Night the 26th. So it gives you a few days to hop around and enter and gives you the weekend. I know I'll be entering most of them!!

All Things Baby Blog Bash Spotlight: hug-a-bub & Review



I was so happy to contact this company for this event, but even more excited when they said yes!!!! They're in Australia so I thought it was a far fetch, but I'm so glad they agreed.

hug-a-bub sells Baby Carriers and Slings. I was very generously sent the Organic Wrap in the Green Tea and Barley color.
 It has this little pocket on the front.
 And it cinches up!! Great for a quick trip somewhere, it can hold keys, cell phone, pacifier extra bottle even. It's a great size and would hold quite a bit if needed.
This organic wrap is very stretchy, it would easily accommodate a toddler. I put Avery in it for a few minutes, Being pregnant I probably shouldn't carry her around in it so it was just a few minutes. She fit great, didn't sag and she liked it and thought it was comfortable. She might be 4, but she's only 30 pounds so I knew she'd be okay in here.
No picture, that's how fast she was back out, I didn't even think about it.

But I can't wait for #2 to join us so I can use this beautiful carrier. The colors are stunning, neutral and don't stand out too much. I just love it.

They have some absolutely gorgeous wraps and slings alike. 
I love this sling
and this one

The wrap I got has the pocket. They also have pocketless wraps for significantly cheaper because it is their most time consuming and expensive feature.

These have NO WEIGHT LIMIT!! It says as long as you can pick up your child, they will feel a lot lighter in the wrap and therefore they can be used in it! AWESOME.  Each one comes with an instructional DVD on how to tie them on and positions to use.

The main feature of the Pocket...This is pretty cool. When you're not using the carrier. Turn the pocket inside out and stuff the carrier in, then scrunch it closed and it has it's own carrying bag!!! HOW GREAT!

Price: The Organic wrap like I received is $125AUD so about $130USD. The pocketless wrap is $79AUD. So they range in price.

Overall: ***** LOVE this wrap and can't wait to use it

All Things Baby
For All Things Baby hug-a-bub has offered one reader the chance to win an Organic wrap in the color of your choice!!! That's a $130 US value!!!
