The Best Personalized Gifts from

With winter fast approaching, blankets are quickly becoming a hot commodity in our home.  Everyone in our household has their very own special blanket to keep them warm…everyone except Mommy.  Which is why I was so excited when found specializes in turning your memories into masterpieces with a few simple clicks.  They have everything from canvas prints and blankets to ornaments and pet bowls.  You name it and they can personalize it. 

After browsing the product selection, I decided to make myself a beautiful Custom Sherpa Fleece Blanket covered with pictures of my littles. This is by far the best gift I have ever made for myself.  After choosing my photos, creating was simple.  The longest part of the process was choosing/organizing the photos I wanted to use.  I was a little unsure as to how many pictures to use but I somehow picked the perfect amount.  I used about 50 photos. Each of the photos turned out clear and vibrant. I was really impressed by the quality of the pictures considering most of them were taking by my phone!  The overall quality of the blanket is phenomenal.
Although I accidentally doubled a photo, I absolutely love my blanket.  I am seriously in love; so much in fact that I am considering ordering another one special for my littles so I don’t have to share.  Speaking of which, duplicates are very easy to reorder.  You simply login, go to My Projects and add it to your cart.

I am more than impressed with the quality of this blanket. The super soft Sherpa Fleece is heavier than I was expecting it to be and is surprisingly warm!  Washing instructions are simple; wash separately in cold water using the delicate setting then Hang dry.  

Since I was totally impressed with my experience at, I decided to order a little brag book for my Mom.  I filled a 6 x 4.5 softcover book with photos of her grandbabies.  It turned out great and I cannot wait to see her open it on Christmas.  Each page is completely personalized and organized exactly how I wanted.  Although they carry larger books, I went with the smaller book so she could carry it with her in her purse. There are more things to customized in a book, so it took me a little longer to create; partly because I'm a perfectionist.

Overall, I was extremely impressed with both the quality of the products I ordered and the ease of creating such beautiful keepsakes. I will definitely be  a repeat customer.

Magic Town Dancewear from Amazon

It's fall which means dance season is upon us.  For our family this means new outfits, slippers, tuition, and a dozen durable tights.  And as much as I appreciate my daughter and her love for dance, I loathe shelling out hundreds of dollars on dancewear that can only be worn for a few months.   So I was over the moon when I found Magic Town and their great, reasonably priced dance products

With such a wide range of sizes, you are guaranteed to find something perfect your little princess.  The size options are: 2-4, 4-6, 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12 and are designed to allow the girls to wear the leotards for a couple of years. 

They also have multiple designs to choose from.  The options include long sleeves, short sleeves, classic cut and tank tops with 6 different color options.

We ordered the Girls' Tank Top Wrap-Round Skirt Leotard in Rose and it is super cute.  Not only does it fit as expected, with its stretching material it will fit her again next season!!  My daughter is big for her age and is in between sizes so I just went ahead and ordered a 10-12.  It fits her great with plenty of stretch left so she can wear it for a while still and have fun. It also stayed true to size after being washed and dried.   Since it is made with soft cotton and spandex, it doesn’t irritate my daughter while she is running and jumping in class.  I do not think she does enough moving around in class to sweat but it is nice to have the added comfort of its sweat absorbing material.

I like that the skirt is and adjustable and completely removable, but it is a little hard to tie properly and doesn’t always stay in place.  Once you get it tied well, all is good.  If you get too frustrated with it, the leotard looks fine on its own.

Overall, I am very happy with Magic Town’s Girls' Tank Top Wrap-Round Skirt Leotard and will be purchasing a few more outfits before the season is over. I am not affiliated with this company and I never promise to provide a positive review when offered a discount. I, like you depend on honest reviews when making purchases online. Therefore, I tested this product thoroughly so that you can make an informed decision. I hope you found it helpful.

Best way to compliment your Christmas decorations!

With Christmas being right around the corner, it may be time to start shopping for new decorations.  If you do find yourself in need of some new holiday d├ęcor this year I highly recommend the red and green Landscape Projector Light by Starry Laser Lights.  I first saw these a few years ago while driving around with the kids looking at Christmas lights and I have always wanted to try one.  I cannot wait until December!!

One of my favorite things about this particular laser is how extremely durable it seems.  It is also very easy to use.  You plug and power on.  And it will connect easily to our other Christmas decorations.   Beautiful enough to be used alone yet also a great compliment to other decorations.  So it you are not feeling like stringing lights this year, this might be an option for you.

I like that this light is incredibly versatile.  It isn’t just for Christmas.  This would be great to use during a party, family BBQ, wedding, or just as a nice addition to the garden.

Since its not quite time to decorate, the kids and I tried it out in the kitchen.  It is so super cool.   We even tried it out in one of our blanket forts!  The kids loved it. 

Wide Range
Simple to install and use
Energy and time saving

Overall, I am very impressed with Starry Laser Light and their product!  Don;t forget to stop by Amazon to order!

Invisible Mini Wireless Bluetooth Ear Buds~Holiday Gift Guide

If you are looking for affordable yet durable Bluetooth earbuds look no further! The Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Invisible Mini Bluetooth Wireless Ear Buds by 1 Voice on Amazon are great!  Talk about quality and definitely worth every penny! The sounds quality of these is absolutely AMAZING. 

They fit perfectly in your ear without falling out (different size covers are included). And the range is awesome; they truly have a 30ft range.

Connecting to your device is super easy and the batteries last about 3.5 hours. I love that these come as a set of 2 instead of a single piece like a lot of other companies do here on Amazon.

Charge time is is about average, taking about an hour and a half to fully charge. The charging cord has 2 port so you can charge both simultaneously.

Also included is a nice and sturdy carrying case, so you can safely store all of the components when not in use. It would be nice if they included a wall adapter but that is not a deal breaker.

My Little North Star Gender Neutral Crib Sheets from Amazon~Holiday Gift Guide

Give the gift of comfort this year with My Little North Star's 100% Organic Crib Sheets.

Finding quality crib sheets that aren’t too costly can often be a daunting task. Are they safe? Are they soft enough?  Are they truly hypoallergenic?  Will they fit properly?  These are just some of the many questions you may face when shopping for those perfect sheets.  Well, thanks to My Little North Star and their organic cotton fitted crib sheets searching just became a lot easier.  

With their luxurious yet healthy gender-neutral sheets, you will not need to look any further.

Since these sheets are made of pure unbleached organic jersey cotton, they are truly hypoallergenic and free of any harsh chemicals.  As well as light and breathable, I can not get over just how soft they are.  I also noticed that the material is made very well and the overall quality is excellent.  I absolutely love the subtle gender-neutral pattern.  The stars and the elephants are quiet calming.   And the fact that you get 2 sheets is awesome; having that second sheet allows you to always have a clean sheet ready to go.

 After washing them, they came out even softer than when they went in.  There was no shrinkage and all of the stitching was still intact. Like any other bed sheet proper care is key.  If you do not take care of your bedding it will not last, no matter the price.  Caring for these sheets is very easy.  And as long as you stick to the washing instructions, these sheets will not pill or fray.  Wash in cold water, omit the fabric softener, and tumble dry low.   Harsh soaps and fabric softeners eat away at fabric, so it is best to launder with just regular laundry soap and exclude the fabric softener.  Also, you should avoid using hot water and over drying, as this will cause the threads to come loose.

Overall, I am really impressed with these sheets. You receive quality, luxurious feeling sheets at an affordable price and they fit snuggly. With these revolutionary sheets your baby is guaranteed a more restful, restorative sleep. I am not affiliated with this company and I never promise to provide a positive review when offered a discount. I, like you depend on honest reviews when making purchases online. Therefore, I tested this product thoroughly so that you can make an informed decision. I hope you found it helpful.

Continuous entertainment takes place on the streets and on 17 themed stages; featuring full-contact armored jousting, comedy and theater shows, music, games, people-powered rides and so much more! Fabulous food and more than 300 artisans displaying their gallery-quality works complete the experience!

If you are in the Holly, Michigan area I definitely recommend grabbing some tickets...even if you do not think the festival is for you.  Everyone should experience it at least once in their life.

Open weekends and Labor day Now thru October 2nd from 10a to 7p!

Our 2016 Michigan Renaissance Festival Tickets are here and we are so excited to dress up and head to Holly.  The girls, Hubby, and I look forward to visiting the Festival every year because it is so much fun!  Since there is so much to see and do there's fun for the whole family.  The kids love the Mermaid, I love the Jousting and Hubby enjoys the comedy skits and the Pub Crawl.  Those are not even the highlight, the best thing about this festival is the people.  Being a pretty "judge free" zone feel free to let loose, dress up, and just have fun!
