ABC's 25 Days of Christmas

I always like to check out some of the things that are available to watch during the Christmas season, that starts AFTER Thanksgiving!  

ABC Family has the answer for some great program ideas.

Get your calendar's out so you can mark off the programs you want to watch - so there isn't any conflict later.


Thank you ABC Family for once again providing us with some great shows to watch that are FAMILY shows.

I can see some great evenings curled up in our "Jammies" watching these shows with some hot chocolate and cookies.

Smile. It could make everyone happy

What do you think.  Have you had this experience?

I know I love doing this, but I will admit sometimes I have to "pinch" myself to remember to smile as I am walking down the street.

Sometimes they other people I pass look really strange, like they are trying really hard to figure out why I am smiling.
Other times, they do break out in a smile too --- and then we both know we are part of something special.



And then there are other times that it really drives them crazy, because they have NO IDEA why I am smiling and of course they WANT to know!

You should try it ...

You might just make everyone you meet feel just a little bit better
OR
You could drive them all crazy

Your choice!

PearlMountain CollageIt Pro Offer!

I was approached by Candy from PearlMountain to share this great offer with you, during the upcoming Thanksgiving period.  I'm looking at this as an awesome way to make some precious home-made Holiday gifts.  

You could start making your holiday gifts NOW and not have to worry about the Black Friday crowds!  I'm all for that.








To thank all the customers' generous and continuous support, PearlMountain is launching a big special offer for CollageIt Pro for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day. From now to Nov.30, every interested people can enjoy the big discount offer here. 

CollageIt Pro is an automatic and easy to use collage maker to create eye-catching collages in no time on both Windows & Mac. It is normally priced at $29.90, now only $9.90 during this Thanksgiving Sale, saving $20. Besides the highlighted features of ease of use, unlimited layouts, diverse templates and multiple output options in the former version, there are many more features in its newly updated Mac version. Just take this chance to try it out. 


This looks like a great deal to keep all those precious pictures safe AND to be able to share or gift to grandmom and grandpop.  

I know when my kids were little, I had all kinds of pictures that I wish I could have created a collage with ... that weren't just pictures stuck in a frame.  Now there is nothing wrong with doing that but after a while, the pictures or the backing seems to "curl" and then you have to re-do them (talk about being a royal pain).

As I said, this looks like a great deal, but it is only available until November 30th so you need to hurry.  I can see some great holiday gifts being created with this one.

Zep - for when Cleaning is Required

I have been running around for the past few days getting things "settled" for a Vendor Show for Tupperware, getting some tax information/clarification for other's not mine, and some other normal day to day things and really haven't been home to do a lot more than "drop and run".


Thankfully I had the opportunity to try out Zep Cleaning Products because my stove looked like who did it and ran (thanks family) after the last cooking project. Now this wasn't the fault of one person, but since they didn't clean up after themselves, or at least it sure doesn't look like it, This was even worse then I've ever seen it!
Here was my stove this weekend ....

Yuck .... and of course some of it on the burner area was "baked" on so it was a really difficult test.




What I really liked about this product (Zep All-Around Cleaner and Degreaser) other than the fact that it really did work, was that it didn't require a huge amount of "muscle"  It really was as easy as spray, wait a minute or two, and wipe.




Because of the fact that it was "covered" with splatters and spills, some of which I bet were there for a while, it did take two passes to clean.  That burned on stuff in the upper left corner ... needed some elbow grease and a Brillo pad, but again I bet that wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't cooked and recooked before it was cleaned off.

I have a stainless steel boarder / lip on the front of my stove that I always have trouble with cleaning - requiring something different from the stove cleaner to keep it from looking splotchy.  That is until I used the Zep - I used the same cleaner on the stainless and wiped it "with the grain" and it was fine.  
That means one less thing I have to buy to clean the stove.  I'm all for that.

If you have some tough stuff to clean or want to know that it quickly clean virtually any surface you need to check out Zep All-Around with Oxy!

I would definitely recommend this product.

I also got to try the Quick Clean Disinfectant that kills 99.9% of bacteria in 5 seconds that cuts through grime and kills cold and flu viruses.  This one is great and I even gave one of the bottles to my daughter to take back to school for their bathrooms and kitchen area --- definitely don't need germs around the college kids while finals are just around the corner.

I really liked this one as well - but because its not as easy to see - the All-Around Cleaner & Degreaser was the best to show the effects.

I will definitely be getting more of these products to use around my home.

Holiday Gifts Delivered to your door - or theirs!

Just wanted to share this opportunity for some great gifts from Tupperware for this upcoming holiday season but ... the first one ends on Friday so you need to hurry.

This would be great, especially the smaller one, for your emergency kit to keep in your car.  The bigger one could be a bigger emergency kit too but I'm thinking of some great holiday decoration keepers ... Check them out on my site.


This one gives some more ideas for those folks that you have no idea what to get but know they have some special "loves", you know we all have one or two of these type of folks.  
The base for these gifts are available on my Tupperware Site.  You don't want to wait too long though, especially if you want to have them under the tree ...


Shipping for the holidays is always crazy, but we at Tupperware are trying to make it a bit easier for you.  See the detail of the States on the Groupings above.
If look at the schedule above, if you have:

  • Someone living in "Group 1 States", you need to order by December 14th for it to arrive at their home before Christmas.  
  • Someone living in "Group 2 States", you need to order by December 15th
  • Someone living in "Group 3 States" you need to order by December 16th
Check out these and so much more on my Tupperware Site.  We are so much more than ever before.  If you haven't seen us lately ... you will be surprised!

It's Tupperware's Mid November Brochure

It's that time again ... the new mid month brochure is available today at Tupperware!  You can check out all of these on my Tupperware Site.


I know there are so many things that are available, you might be overwhelmed and need some suggestions.

Well here you go, some Yule time Shopping Strategies / Suggestions for those you just don't know what would be a perfect gift.



I hope that you will visit my Tupperware Site and do at least some of your holiday shopping. We have all kinds of great things for everyone in the family.

If you are a crafty one, who loves to make your own gifts from the kitchen, you might want to check out our Spaghetti Keeper.  I know you think what is she talking about?


How about all those cookies or brownies in a jar?  I know I love those, but I am always afraid that the jar will get knocked off the counter or off the shelf and all my hard work will have gone to waste AND nobody will get to use the fruits of my labor.  The Spaghetti Keeper by Tupperware works PERFECTLY for these - the seal keeps everything fresh AND no worries about cracks/breaks.  Oh and when they have made your recipe .. they can keep spaghetti in them!  And of course they will then think of you every time they have spaghetti for lunch or dinner.



See its a win - win!
I hope you will consider checking out my Tupperware Site and making your life a little less hectic this holiday season.

As always, when I have $175 in online orders each month, I will select 1 lucky purchaser to receive a gift from me ... pretty sweet don't you think?

Looking for the 7 Wonders of the World?

Sometimes I think we get too involved in what we are doing or trying to do, that we forget that not everything is "old hat", not everything has been seen or imagined by that person sitting right next to you.

Sometimes we have to look at things through the eyes of a child to see what is really around us.



Think about that the next time you get bogged down in the "little things".
Think about this when you can't see the forest for all the trees ...

Think about this when you are putting together your bucket list and add "Visit the 7 Wonders of the World".  But then again, shouldn't this be on your bucket list?

Trust me Everything WILL be ok ...

I really think this one says it all
When you are feeling down
When you think things will never get better,
Remember this little guy....
