An Interesting Place to Shop!

Here’s a place with those “As Seen on TV” gifts as well as many other interesting finds.  And at great prices too!  You may have already had some fun looking through one of their Taylor Gifts catalogs.

I tend to find myself looking for organization items when I find a store like this.  Keeping vitamins organized, things that help me organize my cabinets, etc.  This is a new one, that seems like a simple idea- a fridge roll out caddy.  Simple, yet it seems like a very useful product.  Maybe I could avoid the, “Well, did you look behind the . . .” speech from my husband with one of these.  :)  And I imagine cleaning the fridge wouldn’t be so scary if you could actually see what’s back there!

And how about their outdoor solar lights?  They have solar powered Christmas lights!  I love products that make things easy.

Stop by and take a look at taylorgifts.com.

How to Make a “Grab My Button”, Grab My Button Code

Mommy's Idea Button

I am happy to have helped out so many bloggers to make their own grab my button widget.  I am posting this again, since it seems to be a popular post.  My stats tell me this is what many of you are searching for, so hopefully this post will help to make your very own “Grab my button!”

So how do you make a grab my button?  This tutorial will tell you how to create and install a blog grab button. I’ve tried to give you a simple way to actually make the button and an easy way to use the html code to install the grab button in Blogger and Wordpress.  If it works for you, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know where we can see your new button!

The PERFECT frame!

Mommy’s Idea readers can save 15% with coupon code DR15!

I am a big fan of photography.  Back in the days of film, I took a lot of pictures.  Now that everything is digital, and I have kids, I cannot even begin to count how many pictures I have.  Not to mention the professional photos we get. 

And then there’s all the artwork that my three year old brings home.  What do I do with all of that?

Here’s a great solution.  Dynamic Frames has a fantastic line of frames that helps you keep up with all of your photos and artwork easily!  And without having to buy new frames all the time.

I got to try out one of their Dynamic Squares and I’m not kidding, I LOVE this frame.  I didn’t know I could be so enthusiastic about a frame, but I am!  Here’s how it works . . . you simply open the front and change the picture.  That’s it!  It even let’s you store pictures inside.  I’ve tried mine out with pictures and artwork and they both look beautiful.

There are different options for the color of the frame, as well as the number of photographs and sizes that can be displayed.  There’s a frame for scrapbook pages and they also have art frames called Lil Davinci frames that are specifically for artwork.

So whether you’re looking for children’s frames, frames for portraits, frames for photo prints, or art frames, head on over to Dynamic Frames and start your own portrait or art gallery today! http://www.dynamicframes.com/

Win a Box of Hair Accessories!

The Hair Coverings Store offered to send me something to try out and review.  I have long curly hair so I should be more adventurous, but I usually end up putting my hair back.  When it’s warm out, I’m always looking for something nice to tie it back with. They sent me the stoned pony tail holder, which is available in several beautiful colors.  I love it!  It dresses things up just enough to go casual or a little more dressy.  Whether you’re looking for hair clips, headbands, or fashion accessories, take a look at the Hair Coverings Store.  For your chance to win a box of hair accessories, enter below!
