A few recent finds that get 5 stars from me:
1. Paper Coterie -- it's a new site where you can create photo-books, calendars, journals, etc. I know, I know there's a lot of companies just like this one out there. But this one is offering a smokin' hot deal this month. And their products are really really cute. The deal: use the code BEGINANYWHERE and get $40 off your purchase. I got my order today and I am in love with the products.
First, a coil-bound book containing all the pictures from our family session last summer. It looks awesome. Even Scott was "wow"-ing over it. The pages have a great weight and texture to them. Great quality.
And on a whim I also made an "All About Me from A to Z" book for Anna. All I did was add photos of her from the last year, edit the text, and wa-lah . . . a stinkin' cute alphabet book, all about her, that is going to make a great birthday gift next month.
Here are my titles: A - Anna; B - beach; C - Conner; D - dad; E - bug eyes (wearing her bug glasses from the Saturday market); F - family; G - golf; H - hula; I - imagination; J - jet ski; K - kiss; L - lights at temple square; M - mom; N - no training wheels; O - one hundred silly bandz; P - Payton; Q - quietly sleeping; R - riding my scooter; S - sherlock bones (remember these pics?); T - trampoline; U - ukelele; V - very cute duckling; W - winter fairy (ballet); X - xtra warmth (huddling by the heater vents); Y - yarn bowls; Z - zero fear (rock climbing)
2. Nutter Butter blizzard. The perfect peanut buttery flavor with a little cookie crunch. Yum!
3. Don Aslett cleaning supplies. My mother-in-law introduced me to these products and I've been using them in my bathroom, kitchen, and on my floors for the past few months. They are great, everything feels so clean - fresh smell, no soapy residues. My favorites: Showers 'n Stuff, the heavy duty cleaner, and Shaw's Pads (toilet ring remover).
4. Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control Daily Scrub -- I have been nearly zit free for the last 2 months. Which is exactly how long I've been using this face wash.
