Hey Neighbors, This is a beautiful bracelet from LET ME CHARM U . I was able to choose one of their bracelets to review and they also sent one for me to pass on to a neighbor. Isn't that great? Let Me Charm U is a family business started by Carmen and her husband Ray. They offer custom pendants, bracelets, and key chains. She was really nice to talk to on the phone and was great to work with. She sent me a beautiful rose bracelet in two different sizes. They have several different bracelets, with many different graphics to choose from. They can also use your pictures. These can be used as souvenirs for an event or for a fundraiser. Here is some information from their site: "About Us Let Me Charm specializes in customizing charms, bracelets pendants and key chains to your specifications.

Hello Neighbors, I have a new item to share At the Fence. Sassafras Enterprises allowed us to review their Volcano Cakes Tray Kit and are allowing me to giveaway one mini kit (winners choice). We really had fun with this one as you will see by the pictures. The kit includes a brownie mix, icing, 2 silicone pans, a wooden spoon, and a rhyming recipe with instructions. We took several pictures of making, baking, licking the bowl, and the finished product. They came out beautiful. The instructions were easy to follow, and we now have the pans to re-use, along with the wooden spoon for mixing. We did have to add more water to the icing mix, but the recipe stated that you might have to do this. Overall, this is a great product and would make a good gift, or just something special to do together with mom. As you do have to use the oven adult supervision is needed. Sassafras carries many other baking items. They carry timers, seasonal, baking, and gourmet kits. Any ch

Money Savvy Pig Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, I thought I would go ahead and add this review and giveaway now as we will be traveling the next couple of days, and I am not sure of having internet availability. This review is from Money Savvy Generation (Helping Kids Get Smart About Money) I have to tell you I stumbled on this company while on the internet and wrote them regarding a review and giveaway. I was interested by what I saw on their website, but since seeing the Money Savvy Pig and the Cash Cache , A Beginning Personal Finance Organizer, I am now impressed. I have noticed and I am sure others have too, that our youth of today oftentimes have little knowledge of how to handle finances. We have become a very credit oriented society. I want my children to know how to budget their money, plan ahead with their finances, and know how to save and invest. Money Savvy Generation has many items to help instill some of this knowledge in your child. Both of these items would be great for any child, but I


Hey Neighbors, Kinderglo sent me some of their nightlights to do a review and giveaway with. My younger daughters were so excited. Both of them prefer a small light on at night, so this sounded great. Guess what: it is! These nightlights are so unique. Presently they have three characters, an Owl, a Tyrannosaurus, and a Brontosaurus. These nightlights each come with a charging base and an ac cord. So easy to use. You charge them during the day and use them at night, or nap-time. They are cool to the touch, so your child can carry them around and play with them. Not only do they light up, but they also change colors. You may choose the setting you prefer to continually change colors or to choose one color for the whole night. The discussions before bed as to which color to choose became quite amusing. You can also set the nightlight to turn off after 30 minutes. So many choices! We had a guest visiting and she kept trying to get me to let her take one home! And

Jim Elliot DVD Giveaway Torchlighters

CLOSED Hey Neighbors, I have a new giveaway. Vision Video graciously supplied me with 3 Torchlighter DVD's to review and host a giveaway with. My family already has enjoyed several of the Torchlighters Heroes of the Faith Series. They are produced with the Christian History Institute, International Films and Voice of the Martyrs. My nine year old daughter loves to read about Gladys Aylward, a missionary to China, so that was one of the videos we chose to review. Torchlighters is an animated series for youth (8-12) that covers real life heroes of the faith. We have also seen the William Tyndale, Eric Liddell, Richard Wurmbrand, and John Bunyan. Now, I personally am not for animated little cartoon characters that depict Bible stories. That only takes away from the reality and truth of the Bible to our children, but I have to tell you this series is great. My children have truly enjoyed learning with the Torchlighter DVDs. They stick with factual accounts, they do not a

CLOSED Hi Neighbors, This is one for you ladies. Jess' Bee Natural produces all-natural skin care. I was sent two lip balms, one Peppermint and the other Tangerine, along with their Lavender Shea Butter Lotion. Now, as we are staying up north much longer than normal, my whole family is experiencing chapped lips and skin. Not that we don't have to deal with it some when we are in Florida, but it is much worse up here. The Jess' Bee Natural Lip Balms are really helping with the chapped lips. I can't decide which flavor I like better. Normally I think I would choose peppermint, but I do like the smell of the tangerine. The Lavender Shea Butter Lotion smells wonderful. I love to spray my sheets and pillowcases with Lavender and this Lotion really smells good, and actually lasts. It is not overpowering, and yet you can still smell the fragrance. I really dislike when I use a product and the scent disappears immediately. Jess also carries items for men and b

General Mills Cereal Review

Hi Neighbors, I was recently given a chance through MyBlogSpark and General Mills to do a review of General Mills Cereal. I was given four coupons, each for one box of General Mills Cereal. Now with a family the size of mine, 6 children, 2 of which are teenage boys, I am sure you know how long those lasted. Especially since my children tend to want a bowl of cereal in the evening. We used 2 coupons a week ago, and just recently used the other 2. My husband loves the Reeses Puffs, I don't think the younger children managed to get any of those. I will make sure they do this time. They also like the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We also tried the Raisin Nut Bran for my health conscious older daughters. Recently: "General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D,


CLOSED Hi Again, Here is a product that I am happy to share with my neighbors At the Fence, Fashion Playtes. I received a beautiful cape, (designed by my daughter) to review, and to make it even better Fashion Playtes has offered a $50 Gift Certificate for a giveaway. Both of my daughters now have a cape from this company (thanks to my older daughter winning a giveaway), and they both love to go to Fashion Playtes and design more items. Fashion Playtes is great for any young girl. She gets to choose which item to she likes (shirt, jacket, cape, tote, etc.), then design it, using ribbon, appliques, etc. Afterward you can put it on a model, and then, best of all, you can order it and actually wear what was designed. What a great gift idea! It's as simple as: "Begin With The Sketchbook All great designs - including our dresses, t-shirts, hoodies, and lots more - begin with a simple drawing. Select the item you would like to use for your design from the Fashion Pla

Cover Your Hair Giveaway

CLOSED Hi Neighbors, Cover Your Hair was kind enough to send me two items from their website. One is a Black Beret, and the other a white and gold wide headband. My daughters agreed to model them for me. My youngest has very thin flyaway hair, so she has used the headband several times this past week. She also loves the beret and wore it while we went to visit friends for two days. The headband is really nice in that my daughter has the ability to wear it 2 ways. She wears it as a thin headband, or she spreads it out and it covers almost the whole top of her head. Very nice when it was windy out. You can visit them to see the different kinds of head coverings they have available. I am impressed with the variety they have. They also carry some very pretty shawls. See Here . Cover Your hair has offered to send the winner of this giveaway a $25 Surprise Gift Box. You never know what you might win.
