Recomended Giveaways!

Here's some things that I own and love that I spotted giveaways for....

One Thousand Gifts (12/31)

A friend bought this for me, and it is one of the most beautiful and touching books I've ever read.  I also love the author's blog...A Holy Experience.

My youngest got this from his grandparents this Christmas, and it is SO NEAT!  The cute little pup make soft barking, howling, and other doggy sounds as you read the story, in response to different parts.  It's very soft, and doesn't interrupt the reading...and my son just lights up every time Jingle does something!  AND, you can say some of the phrases when the story isn't going and he'll respond to you.  For instance, "Jingle want to sing?" will make the puppy howl a Jingle Bells!  :-)

These bins fold out into a play mat and are just a neat way to keep your kids toys organized.   They just fold the play mat up with everything on it when they're done playing with their toys.  I won one earlier this year, which my older boys use for thier legos, and am thinking about getting one for my youngest's trains.   :-)

Squidoo Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome fellow Squido Lensmasters! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  I really enjoyed this Christmas, though it was busy.  But this december I still managed to get a couple lenses done!

First one is a Scribbleprints Geek Gifts lens featuring goodies for geeks at my shops!

And the other is one I just finished that I hope you can all help me out with.  Remember how there used to be a suggestion section in the Squidu Forums...then they got rid of it?  Well, I just made a 2012 Squidoo Wishlist lens where people can share what they hope will be added, fixed and changed at Squidoo in 2012.  I'm hoping if it's popular enough Squidoo staff will take notice!  So I hope you'll visit and add and vote on wishes, but also let me know if there's anything you see that might need changing/improving!  Thanks!

For those who aren't travelling here by blog hop and don't know what Squidoo is, it's just a place where you can make nifty little web pages about any topic you choose, and maybe earn a little money for yourself or a charity in the process.
