Any Digital Scrapbookers Out There? Giveaway!

My Memories has a digital scrapbooking software. My friend Shawna scored a free copy from the company and got another one to give away!

It’s always exciting to first be recognized as a blogger with a giveaway, though we both wonder how a company chooses specific bloggers to participate.

I love how she gives a full review of the software on her site, plus if you buy the software you get a $10 off coupon. How often do you get 25% off something? She doesn’t make any stringent requirements like writing an essay about how much you really need digital scrapbooking software or taking a million random pictures of scavenger hunt options – aren’t you glad I didn’t think up the rules for the giveaway? All you have to do is follow Shawna Skinner Meyer’s blog (she gives options) and follow the company (again, options) and let her know about it.

Don’t let me be the only one to enter. I don’t even scrapbook!

Finger Puppets

Etsy Finger Puppets

I gave these puppets to my niece as a birthday gift. The regular version, not the Halloween version, though both are pretty cool. She loved them! She’s six and she’s totally into all manner of things artistic that she can put together or do herself.

It’s so much fun to watch her excitement over these items. some things she needs supervision with, especially because these require fabric glue (available anyplace craft goods are sold, including Wal-Mart and Target).

The puppets are made of felt, cut to approximate sizes in varying colors. Included are squares for cutting of hair and clothes in any style the creator can think of! “At least two eyes” per puppet are guaranteed, though there is the option of putting on more or less as you like. This is definitely a cute idea to share and it keeps kids (and adults) on their creative toes to see what they can come up with.

Actually, sometimes it makes me want some of my own!
