Did you know you can shop, earn, and donate all at once? You are already shopping online or on your mobile devices, so why not donate to a good cause while doing so. iMyne allows you to do just that. Many of the retailers you already know and love actually offer money back as an incentive to shop their sites, but these incentives are rarely cashed in on. iMyne works with these sites to send those savings back to you as well as your favorite charitable cause.

Throwback Thursday ~ To One Of My Favorite Peeps!

I thought it would be fun to share an old blog post with you for Throwback Thursday. Thefrom way back when I first started blogging and originally share on April 4, 2009.

To One Of My Favorite Peeps!
Today was a nice quiet day. I really like those days, especially when it falls on a Friday. I got to spend the whole day just puttering around the house and doing small projects I have wanted to do for a while. I would call that a very productive day!

I did get to work tonight on the SCS Inspirations Challenge. We were to go to the web site of French Bull Store. What an interesting site and a challenging site to find inspirations for a card! It was fun looking through all the neat things they carry in their store. This is what inspired me, the Felix Platter. To me it just said "Chicken Wire"! So I immediately thought of the background stamp and several chicken stamps I have.

To One Of My Favorite Peeps!
And well here you have what I came up with from that platter. I love the little chicken stamp I used. She has on the biggest shoes. I just smile every time I see those spindly legs in those giant shoes!! She, as well as all images, were stamped in Stazon Jet Black ink. I water colored her and just added a smidge of accent with colored pencils. She and the panel behind her are popped up to give some dimension. Then I added brads, twill ribbon and a spiral clip.

Oh the chicken stamp is from Stampotique Originals. The chickenwire background is from Judikins. The sentiment is from A Muse Artstamps. Spiral clip and brads are all from Spare Parts.

I made the card for a very dear friend, just to encourage her. Hope she likes it! Hope you like it. Thanks again for spending some time with me!

Quilts Of Love Book Series ~ A Grand Design by Amber Stockton

I have truly been enjoying the entire Quilts of Love collection of books. Each one is a treasure. one of the newest books, A Grand Design, is just wonderful!

As with the other stories in the series there is a quilt as an integral part of the whole thing. It's been fascinating to see how the different authors have brought quilts into the story in unique and interesting ways.

The description of Mackinac Island truly makes you want to go and visit to see everything for yourself. Alyssa is an interesting character in the book. it was easy to like her and walk through this story with her. She's very believable person and you find yourself hoping she finds love. Scott, Alyssa's romantic interest, was so sweet and understanding, although I would have loved to have learned a little more about his personal story.

In all, it was a nice book and a good read!

About the Book:
A getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs---if only she can let go of her past.

When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa's grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.

As the quilt's story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother's life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa's fractured heart---and bring healing to her entire family?

Learn more about this book and the series at the Quilts of Love website.

A Little Strand Of LED Lights Can Do So Much!

I love decorating for a party! I love decorating for holidays! It's something I grew up with. My Mom was the champion at it!

A super fun and easy way to decorate today is by using lights. I love how special strands of lights can completely change the mood of a room or setting. Using colored ones even enhances it more.

RTGS Products has the neatest sets of light to use for all kinds of decorating. They have a 20 Micro LEDs String Lights set that is super cool!

The set is super tiny and to look at it you would think not much would come from it! The little battery box is 3"x2" and the strand is 7 feet long with 20 lights with a 4" spacing between lights. To look at the strand though, it makes you think it is just a jumble of thin wire. There's no way this could be a 20 LED light strand.

Wrong! It most definitely is and it is super bright! I was surprised at how bright it was. And to be honest I am impressed! Such tiny little lights can do so much in a little space.

The lights that RTGS Products carries come in a variety of colors and lengths. They have 20, 30, 60, and 100 LED strands. The 100 strand comes in Warm Whits only. The 60 and 30 come in Warm White and Cold White. The 20 light strand comes in Warm White, Cold White, Blue, Green, Red, and Pink. It comes with an easy to use on-off switch too.

I love how their site has an awesome Gallery showing you the many ways these lights can be used. I can see these being used at a lot of weddings and baby showers as well as some awesome ideas for Christmas!

This is one little product with big effects and I'm sure you and your family will have fun with them!

You can purchase the lights HERE! I think the price is very reasonable!

Connect with RTGS Products on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest (where they have wonderful decorating ideas!), and Google+.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Summit Nutritions Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones Are A Super Good Thing!!

I think every single one of you can relate to struggling with loosing some weight, whether a little or a lot. It's not easy most of the time. If you are like me, you have tried several, if not a lot of things to help you loose a few pounds here and there. They all come with promises and guarantees and more, and some work for a while or help a tiny bit. Then you body gets used to the product and it just seems to stop working. So you are back to square one.

I know how that is and I have been there myself. It's no fun!

Recently I was able to try out something I have never used before. I had heard of it, but it just never came about for me to try. I'm glad I finally did! Summit Nutritions makes a Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones.

Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones

  • Rapid Results - can produce visible weight loss results in two weeks 
  • Maximizes Body Energy - enzyme lipases helps breakdown fat cells, turning fat to fuel promoting increased energy levels 
  • Burns Body Fat - by metabolism and lipolysis (breakdown of fat) 
  • Promotes Appetite Suppression - causes the body to release more of a hormone “leptin.” Leptin is one of the appetite hormones in your body that, when producing more, will help you feel full 
  • Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones Extract – a safe, natural compound found in raspberries. Not synthesized in a laboratory. 
  • Comes in 500 mg/ Capsules – 120 Capsules per bottle manufactured in the USA in USFDA, cGMP Certified Manufactured Facility

How it Works- Proven Fat Burner and Appetite Controller. In Vivo and In Vitro studies, it shows that it increases the Fatty Acid Oxidation; stimulates Adiponectin, which is a protein involved in regulating Glucose Level and Fatty Acid Oxidation. It burns the Body Fat and Converts it into Energy when the Body needs it and that is how it helps the Body to Control Appetite; as a result it is an Appetite Suppressant. Raspberry Ketones Works as an Efficient Weight Loss Supplement when it combined with a balanced diet and Regular Exercise. When one does Exercise, it requires the body to burn extra energy and also burn extra calories, and if you are taking Raspberry Ketones, it burns the Existing Body fat to convert it into Energy which is required for Exercise. As a result one doesn't need extra nutrition to get energy for exercise.

Now I am not going to say this is a miracle drug or something that will work for everyone. I will say that from almost day one I noticed that I was not as hungry as normal. I ate less and was satisfied with less. On the days I forgot to take the Raspberry Ketones I noticed my appetite increased, so I know it is working for me.

Is the weight flying off ~ NO.

Is the weight coming off ~ YES!

It may be slowly coming off, but I am fine with that. I want to loose a little at a time so my body can adjust. It's what my doctor said I should do as rapid weight loss can be difficult on your heart, kidneys, liver, and more. I'll take a pound or two here and there that stays off instead of 20 that bounce back on!

I have been using the Raspberry Ketones now for almost a month and I can say I am very glad I am!  In combination of trying to watch fats, sugar and getting more exercise I have noticed a big difference in my daily energy levels and appetite. I don't crave some of the salty snacks I used to because I feel full from my meals. If I was even more diligent with my diet and exercise I could see a lot more weight coming off!

You might want to give Summit Nutritions Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones a try. Believe me I was skeptical before I started and have made a complete turn around.
