Does your TP feel like a cloud?

This post brought to you by White Cloud. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you're like me, toilet paper is one of those things that you just don't skimp on.

I mean, it makes NO sense to buy 1 ply toilet paper am I right?!?

So, when I was given the opportunity to new White Cloud Luxuriously Soft bathroom tissue, I thought.. WHY NOT!

What you many not have realized is that White Cloud bathroom tissue is exclusively sold at Walmart, which means you can potentially get a lot of bang for your buck. (Find White Cloud products near you)

The cool thing that I learned about new White Cloud Luxuriously Soft bathroom tissue is that it is created using an innovative technology called TAD, or “Through Air Dried." So for you and me, basically what they do is use a special machine that blows air through single-ply sheets. By doing this it actually creates a two-ply product that has amazing thickness, softness, strength and absorption. Who knew?!?

If you are interested in trying out White Cloud Luxuriously Soft bathroom tissue for yourself then be sure to Like White Cloud on Facebook or Follow White Cloud on Twitter. They offer tons of great deals and coupons.

If you can't wait then here is a $1.00 off coupon to get you started. Don't say I never gave you anything. 🙂

This isn’t from the peanut Gallery! #GalleryDirect

My husband is wicked hard to shop for.

No seriously. He is the epitome of the guy who has everything he needs/wants.

However, recently we painted our living room and since then I just haven’t felt up to decorating it again. Even with all the “hints” my hubs has given me that it is time, I just haven’t had the energy or will.

Did I mention that my hubs birthday is just a few days before Father’s Day? Right, shoot me now.

I brainstormed and was then given the opportunity to become an ambassador for Gallery Direct. I was close to passing on the offer but then realized that this was just the thing I had been looking for. What better gift than to give my hubs the thing he had been asking for. DUH!

gallery direct canvasSo, I logged on and started shopping the large quantity of fabulous canvas art work that is available. My husband and I love black and white photography and agreed that we would like our living room to incorporate a combination of landscape photography and b/w of our own family. I have several pieces already but really wanted a large focal piece to draw the eye to this great big empty wall we have.

I stumbled across this gem and instantly fell in love. I totally get the drama of it. At first I didn’t want to show it to the hubs because I wanted it to be a surprise but figured I better let him know what’s up instead of risking him not liking it.

Thankfully he loved it too!

Now my big plan will be to go through some family photos and have them printed up to go on either side of our art in the same type of frames. I’m thinking that I will also get some of the photo’s printed on canvas from Gallery Direct as well to add more dimension. I really like the looks of the wall collage of art and that’s what I’ll be going for.

Congratulations Amy!

blog-notsoscaryhalloween-youcanmakethisYou know what I love about the title of this post? It’s not just the title but also the name of the website I’m going to write about!

You Can Make This is a one stop shop for DIY and kids. The only thing I am crafty about is scrapbooking, and even then it’s just a bunch of papers and photos on a page.

I have wanted to learn to sew better for such a long time and this website has inspired me to do it!

You Can Make This features e-books on how-to do just about anything crafty; from sewing, to digital scrapbooking, to home decor! The instructions are easy to follow and reasonably priced. The most expensive one I found was around $15 for a single book. There are bundle packages that cost a bit more.

The are three features that I absolutely love.

First off there is a section just for beginner basics. This was right up my alley! A couple of the projects were even free to download! I’m really looking forward to making coffee cozies.

YCMTreview Aren’t these just the coolest things!? They are just so stylish and I imagine them to be a great conversation starter.

Another feature is the Free section. There are over 45 projects listed under this category! I couldn’t believe my eyes. The projects range from baby items to quilting.

The last section I want to mention is the Kids Can Make This portion of the site. There are 4 crafts listed including beads and a paper bag book which looks really cool. The greatest thing? These are all free also!

Once you check out this site you will begin to realize the full potential of your sewing machine, scrapbooking supplies and any other craft tools you have lying around.
