What does an expectant mother of twins do when she is so huge (this is no exaggeration) that she can barely walk and is due to give birth anytime now until the first week of April? The question really is what am I doing right now?

Since my 2 year old son is taking a nap and my husband is busy and very productive in working on his website – I have been surfing for hours now. And I have found some interesting finds and special deals. If you are interested then please allow me to share some of these to you.

For ME:

Authors Michael Phillip Cash and Carole P. Roman have teamed up to offer readers everywhere the chance to win a great Christmas gift. One lucky reader will win $500 USD PayPal cash!

Carole P. Roman

Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born.

“Captain No Beard – An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life” has not only been named to Kirkus Best of 2012, it received the Star of Remarkable Merit, and won the Pinnacle Award for 2012. “Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience” Book 2 in the series, received 5 Stars from The ForeWord Review The Clarion Review. It has followed with six more books to the series. Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.

Her new non fiction series, “If You Were Me and Lived in…” combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us. The debut book in the series, “If You Were Me and Lived in…Mexico” has won the Pinnacle Award for Best in Children’s Non Fiction 2012. France, South Korea, Norway, Kenya and Turkey. They will be followed with India and Australia.

She plans to do Portugal, Greece, and Argentina next year. Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.

Michael Phillip Cash

Michael Phillip Cash’s first book “Brood X – A Firsthand Account of the Great Cicada Invasion” is presently under consideration for a film adaptation. His well received second novel, “Stillwell – A Haunting on Long Island”, has stayed on the top of Amazon’s “100 Best Seller” in it’s genre since its release earlier this year.

He recently released “The Hanging Tree”, his first novella. Michael is currently working on a new book, Schism, which will be available soon on Amazon. Michael lives on Long Island with his wife and children.

We wish our readers Happy Holidays and warm wishes.
Good luck to all and to all a good night!

I have never heard of scentsy until I won one. I must say that after month of using scentsy, I am so impressed by the way it looks, how it provides our home with a subliminal sense of wonderful smell and most especially, it is safer than lighting a candle.

I will definitely be using scentsy in the future and if you want one, please feel free to contact Vava.

What To Do With Birthday Cards…

Follow Me on Pinterest

The day my son celebrated his first birthday was such a special day to my husband and myself that I wanted to keep all the cards we received.
As months passed, the cards seemed to just take space.
I wanted to do something about it and this was my solution…

I compiled the cards and bound them into a book.


2 8×8 chip boards

double sided tape

4 8×8 paper (the ones that you would like to use to cover the chip board)




Spiral wires

The cards

Craftmazing fistbday 003

1. Adhere the tape to the chip board and then adhere the papers of choice into the chip boards.

2. Using a Cinch I punch a hole on all of my paper.

3. I used the spiral wires to bind them.

4. Use establishments of  choice to make your book more commemorative of the occasion.
