Custom Home Decor With Mpix! #PhotoGifts

Recently, our family has been doing a lot of organizing, moving furniture, redecorating, and changing things up in our home-basically all those normal "spring cleaning" projects, only we waited till the end of summer to do it! One thing I've been doing is incorporating a lot of photos in my bedroom. I have a few canvas art pieces on my walls but I added some photo prints, a photo canvas, a photo album on my coffee table, and even some photos under the glass top of the coffee table. I think it gives the room a very personalized and homey look, as well as allowing me to enjoy so many memories just by being in my bedroom. One company that I discovered while doing all this photo decorating is Mpix, who offers the normal photo gifts (books, canvases, prints, etc.) but also had something different that I had never seen before. It's called a Thumbprint Photo Box, and this is one of the best photo products I have ever seen!

There are two options when ordering your thumbprint box; either 50 prints, or 10 mounted prints. These 4x4 prints come in a small wood box with four easels so you can display a few of the pictures and then swap them out as desired. I chose the 50 prints simply due to the fact that I had so many pictures I wanted to be able to display! The ordering process was very easy and the pictures were quickly uploaded and ready to be ordered. Shipping time was super-quick, and I was very anxious to see the finished product when it arrived. I thought it sounded like a neat idea, but I wasn't prepared for how lovely this is. (On a side note, this would make a perfect gift for someone-housewarming, wedding, birthday, anniversary, any event or reason you can imagine). The wood box is cute and is just perfect to sit on a coffee table, end table, shelf, or anywhere you'd like so people can browse the other pictures. At the same time, it keeps the rest of the pictures safe and protected until you decide to rotate out the ones on display. The easels will hold the unmounted photos just fine, and I am so enjoying having the ability choose from 50 different pictures which ones I'd like displayed each day. When the rest of the family saw the setup, they loved it! (Can we say Christmas gift idea to keep in mind this holiday season?!) This is so unique, and the perfect way to keep some cherished memories on display.

Mpix also allowed me to order a keychain for review. This is a metal keychain and you can choose from either a rectangle or rounded corners. Again, I was so impressed with this product. The colors are vibrant and clear, and I love how sturdy the keychain is. I had purchased a keychain for our new vehicle a few weeks beforehand, and it actually broke within about two weeks of use. So needless to say, I am thrilled with how sturdy this one is-with the added benefit of having one of my favorite pictures on it! The keychain is double sided, so you can choose to have either two different pictures or the same one on both sides.

I can't say enough how helpful Mpix was during the order process. I accidentally ended up putting the picture on the back of the keychain wrong, where the hole would have been through someone's head. They contacted me and offered to swap the photo around so it would be at the bottom of the picture instead. It's nice to know they catch mistakes like that and actually notified me so it could be corrected. I recommend Mpix as a great place to shop for any photo gifts or decor!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
