Send a smile with Ginger Mail (#giveaway)

I love getting mail. Well, perhaps I should revise that statement: I love getting GOOD mail.

Ginger P Designs is trying to increase the amount of good mail that is going around through Ginger Mail, a program that delivers a variety of greeting cards, stationery items and other fun surprises to your mailbox every Read more […]

Holiday Hits and Wrap Up

I cannot believe how quickly the holiday season went this year! Having two little ones who were old enough to really be involved and excited about Christmas was just amazing.

Turns out I had nothing to worry about; they were absolutely enchanted from the opening credits! Releasing Read more […]

Pirate Costumes put the ARRR in Merry Christmas

Are my kids the only ones who like to throw a random “arrr” into their words when they pretend to sail the seven seas as pirates? I particularly enjoy “happy barrrrrrthday” and “Marrrrry Christmas”! I was a kid with a big imagination and it makes me so happy to watch my girls follow in my footsteps with their imaginative play, so a costume from Anytime Costumes is a perfect present for both of them! After much deliberation, I decided to go with the Young Pirate Costume. This costume fits Read more […]
