Jingle Around the Clock with NMEDA - Customized Vehicles

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

The holiday season can be rough for family with adults or children who are disabled.  Especially if they don't have the proper vehicle.     Not every person with a disability is the same.  Each person has their own needs.  "Wheelchair Adapted" vehicles sold over the Internet, may not always work for your situation - like they say they will."  NMEDA has a solution for that.   If you haven't heard of NMEDA, it is a non-profit trade association who educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.  To find a dealer in your area you can go to the NMEDA Website.

NMEDA offers a personalize "in-person" evaluation.  This way you can be sure sure that you are receiving the right vehicle customized to your specific lifestyle and needs.  Also, if you need any addition training or product information, your  NMEDA is there to help

Not only does NMEDA have dealers for their vehicles, they also have Quality Assurance Program dealers.  
"The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality."

  This holiday season is the perfect season to get a customized vehicle for your family. And also another great thing about NMEDA, You don't have to worry about your information being sold.  NMEDA does not sell anything.

Check out NMEDA and let me know if you have a dealer near you.

Jingle Around the Clock with Baby Dipper Bowl - Review and Giveaway

Baby Dipper was created by a Mother of Twins - Barbara Schantz. "As a stay-at-home mom of twin babies, I faced the daunting task of feeding them. Frustrated with the bowls I had already purchased, I investigated and bought other bowls, but still remained disappointed. The vision for the Baby Dipper® bowl came to me when Cora and Greta were about 6 months old, not long after they started eating baby cereal and other pureed foods. I needed a bowl that required only one hand to successfully feed a baby, but why wasn't there one on the market that satisfied this need?" So She Created Baby Dipper. This is made for an easy feeding using just one hand.
Barbara was generous and sent me a Baby Dipper bowl for review! This bowl is perfect for small hands. It is a unique design, so that it is easier for the young children to finish their bowl. And for those who are older and drink the milk from the end of the cereal, that "triangle " style design makes it perfect to funnel the milk into their mouth! The size of the spoon and fork are perfect for little hands. The design of this bowl makes it sturdy enough to only use one hand for feeding. I can not wait to share the technology of this bowl with my friends who are expecting! They are going to LOVE it! (especially since they are all going on their 2nd children)

This bowl would be the perfect Holiday gift for that new mom - or for that toddler who is wanting to feed herself.
How do you get one of these great bowls?

Jingle Around The Clock - Scandle Candle Review

One of the best gifts that a Woman can receive is Spa Treatment. A Massage with Warm Lotion... just enough to smooth the stress away. With Scandle Candle, you can share this spa treatment with your significant other. If you haven't heard of Scandle Candle before... Scandle is a Soy oil based candle that is safe to use on your skin. Since this is a Soy Oil Based Product, this candle burns 2 degrees above body temperature - so it will not burn your skin.

How do you use Scandle? "Simply light the Scandle (we recommend for about 30 minutes or until the candle melts to the container's edge so that the candle will continue to burn evently with every use). Then, extinguish the flame and apply a small amount on to desired area (we recommend a quarter size to start). When done, allow the candle to cool..the liquid will re-congeal to a solid state permitting additional applications"

I have had the chace to try the Scandle Candles. I was sent the Shimmering Body Candle. This candle has a Warm Vanilla Sugar Scent. I was totally amazed by this product. When I received this, I had to light It to see how it smelled - and to see how hot it got. The Smell is noticeable as soon as you open the tin. When it is lit, it gives off a soft Vanilla Sugar. And I was amazed that After the candle was blown out, the "Wax" was warm to the touch, but it wasn't burning hot. My husband thought that he would be sneaky and while I was not looking - he poured some on my back. This caught me totally off guard since I am always expecting him to put something ice cold on my back. But to my wonderful surprise... It was warm and made my skin shiver! Thank you Scandle for allowing me to review this great Candle!

This is one of my TOP stocking stuffer suggestions. If you are a Spa Owner/Masseuse, use this as a special treat for your clients. Buy this online on Scandles Website.

Do you want some BONUS ENTRIES into my other Giveaways??? If you leave a comment Here telling me what scent you would order from SCANDLE CANDLE you can get 1 EXTRA Entry into any giveaway. In the giveaway just leave the Comment SCANDLE CANDLE ! And Voila! You have one extra entry!

Jingle Around The Clock with Party Lite Candles - Reivew & Giveaway

I love Candles. I love the soft smells that float through the air when they are lit. I love the relaxing mood that they create - when you have them lit and the lights turned down low (or even better turned off). A lit candle can change the mood of a whole room. Party Lite Candles have a Huge Variety of Scents and Colors of candles (including unscented) that accent every room and every occasion.


Party Lite allowed me to sample some of their products. They sent me some products from the Mercury Glass Line. I love the pillar candle holder. It has that old "heirloom" feel. The silver color makes it versatile for almost every decor. I also received the red "ornament". This looks like an ornament, but it holds the wax refills or any other small trinkets. I love the smell of the Wax refill that I received. I received the Iced Snowberries. The smell is just soft - just enough to notice, but not over powering. I can not wait til our Christmas Party to show off the great Products that PartyLite has come out with.

If you haven't tried Party Lite Candles... I would say it is a MUST. I have heard from many others that these candles burn great....And I had to test it out for myself. I can confirm that these candles burn well! A candle can change the mood of a person.  Personally the home situation I live in wasn't always the most mentally healthy - but when you light a Party Lite Candle, You can change your Home Health. If you are interested in purchasing any of the party lite products, you can find a consultant online that is in your area, if you don't know anyone who sells it. Also take advantage of hosting a party. They seem to have great Hostess Offers. Even Guests can earn special rewards for attending a party. And if you are looking for some gift ideas... PartyLite.com has a section of Internet Specials. Take advantage of the great sales!

Buy These: You can shop online or from a local Party Lite Consultant

Jingle Around the Clock with Warmly Yours - Review

Winter is a Time for Bundling up and Trying to stay warm.  Tons of Blankets... Warm Pajamas...  Hot Showers...and last but not least.  Warm Towels!  I know I love wrapping myself in something warm when i step out of a hot shower. ESPECIALLY on a Winter day.  Warmly Yours has a Great Selection of your Warming Needs.   They carry everything from Towel Warmers, to Area Warmers, to Heated Floors.

There are 6 Different Style of Towel Warmers -  Elements 2,Elements 3, Elements4, Infinity, Portofino,and Riviera Warmers.   My favorite out all the styles is the Infinity Warmer.  A little about this particular model:  "The WarmlyYours Infinity electric towel warmer is manufactured from stainless steel with a beautifully brushed finish and has 10 sleek bars to hang towels or a bathrobe. This Zen-like design is perfect for creating a tranquil spa environment right in your home bathroom. Infinity is C-UL-US listed and comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. At 23 5/8" x 32" H and weighing less than 9 lbs., Infinity is easy to install and operates at a fraction of the cost of most liquid filled models."

I have had the chance to review the Warmly Yours Towel Warmer.   I have always had my eye on a towel warmer, from the time My husband and I registered for our wedding.  But we never took the chance to get one.  That's why I was So excited when I was given the opportunity to review the Infinity Towel Warmer.  This is a Dream Come True.  What is my thoughts about this warmer?  It is heaven!  All you have to do is turn it on (we have the plug in option)  get your shower stuff ready... Take a long warm Relaxing Shower (Or my Preference - Bath) and Voila!  When you're ready you have a warm towel- just ready and waiting for you.   This towel warmer is great because the fact that it is not a Hard Wired unit.  So we are able to Mount it where we are living now, and when we decide we want to move, Un-mount it and Put up a regular towel bar in it's place...and away we go! :D  The design of this unit is sleek.  It doesn't take up too much wall space- nor does it look Gaudy on the wall.    Thank you Warmly Yours for the opportunity to review this Great Unit!  It is defiantly a Holiday must for you Home shoppers!

Do you ever wonder what is in the products we use or the food we feed our children? I know I do. Well worry no more. There is this great website for Eco-Friendly Baby Products - Eco Mom. EcoMom.com was created to address the connection between the health of the environment and the health of our children. They are committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable and rewarding.
EcoMom carries a vast array of products - from Organic Foods to Toys and books. They even have some things for us mommies! Right now they have a great Savings Opportunity! EcoPass gives you 15% off and free shipping on every order. This great features is $99 -which comes out to $0.28 per day and pays for itself so quickly. This will pay for itself in as few as 4 orders!

The Generous people over at EcoMom sent me the Happy Mama Spray. This aroma therapy spray was created with natural products - to help calm you on those stressful days. A little about the Happy Mama Spray: "It's made only with pure essential oils and flower essences for on-edge new mamas as well as more seasoned, patience-tested ones. For pregnancy nausea, spritz a little onto your wrist and inhale to help settle the queasies. A spray and a deep sniff can help battle the "baby blues." And to tolerate toddler rampage, a silly spray on both mama and tot can tone down a tough moment! It's made with a safe, proprietary blend that includes lime and ginger pure essential oils."
Ingredients: water, Olea europaea (organic olive) oil, and a proprietary blend of Citrus aurantifolia (organic lime) essential oil, Zingiber officinale (ginger) essential oil, Citrus reticulate (tangerine) essential oil, Citrus sinensis (organic orange) essential oil, Cananga odorata (ylang ylang) flower oil



I have been able to put this to the test. I am a mommy that can be crazy stressed out - from the life of being a mom to the life of being a retail employee. I will have to say this...the smell may seem a little crazy when it is in the bottle - but when it's sprayed on your sleeve (or pillow for those who need happy dreams) it has a soft sweet smell. Have i found it to help with the craziness... It has helped enlihgten my moods, but Im still one Crazy mama! Hmmmm... Maybe I should spray it on Lil C, to see if it will chill and relax him a little.

Jingle Around the Clock - Best Pals Review and Giveaway

Every Little Girl has a Doll of their own. And I'm sure if you ask any Grown woman, you will find out that she owned one - and probably can tell you her favorite childhood doll. I know I remember Mine! And over time Dolls have evolved from Soft cloth "rag dolls" to plastic dolls that cry and coo. Two Sisters have come up with a Line of Dolls that Take every Lady back to their childhood Days. Kathy and Janet Lennon came up with the Best Pals dolls.

The Best Pals Story: "We have always called each other "Best Pals". We grew up holding hands and talking special care of one another. It has always been our dream to record our favorite childhood songs and to recreate our homemade rag dolls, so lovingly made for us by our Mom and Nana in 1949. We want other young children to know the joy of holding soft little dolls in their arms, listening to sweet music, and sharing special moments with their Best Pals; because after all our years of working and playing together, we are still Best Pals...no matter what!"

I received the BEST PALS Janet and Kathy Doll, Tea Set and also the CD. These dolls are beautiful! They are the Typical "Rag Doll" style. Soft, with braided yarn hair. Each doll does have the beaded Best Pals Bracelet. It came complete with a Tea Set - which is TIN and not Ceramic or China. This is one of my favorite pieces because if they drop, you wont have to worry about them breaking! That is a Mommys Dream! :D Some of these pieces, like the tea set, are being put away for future time, when my Special little girl gets a little bigger. At my Son's birthday, I showed my mother and Grandmother the dolls...and it brought back many memories for both of them! You would think they were little girls looking at their very first dolly again.

You can purchase the Kathy Doll and the Janet Doll online for $24.95 each

Jingle around the Clock - Smart and Sexy Review and Giveaway

Christmas is that time of year to spoil your significant other. And what better way to spoil someone than to get them some sexy lingerie. Ladies, how about pampering yourself with a new bra set? Men, how about getting your lady some sexy sleepwear? Smart and Sexy has you covered on all of these. Smart & Sexy is an online store that has Us Women in Mind.
A little about Smart & Sexy:
"Our mission is to always bring you quality, fit, comfort and value - that's Smart! We also bring you the latest trends, great design, fabulous colors and the best silhouettes to enhance your body and increase your confidence - that's Sexy! We want you to feel good about the lingerie you wear with a brand that supports women in more ways than one. For every garment shipped, a donation will be made to organizations that support women. To learn more about our charitable initiatives, check out the "Community" section on our website. Smart & Sexy® is created and designed by Ariela-Alpha International, one of the largest privately held lingerie companies in the country, selling over 60 million garments a year under numerous national brands, for over 10 years." -www.smartandsexy.com

I have had the chance to try out the Smart and Sexy Line. Smart & Sexy sent me 2 Bra and pantie Sets, and 1 Lace Nightie. I was So Excited when these came in the mail, because they were so wonderfully crafted - and Bright in Color!
The Bra's Fit Perfect! They are comfortable to wear - and they have a cute back strap! At firs sight, I wasn't not in love with the panties - until I got to actually wear them. They hug in just all the right spots. The red ones are defiantly more of an every day style. But the black/pink ones... are great for that special event night!
The nightie that i received is Very Comfortable. It is made with a woman's figure in mind. They do appear to have this similar style/cut on their website in Black. I defiantly recommend this nightie - and I'm pretty sure my hubby will agree!
The other great thing about Smart And Sexy? They are very pocketbook friendly! :D It's hard to find quality pieces at prices that everyone can afford. I personally am tired of spending like 10-20.00 on a bra that is just practical and not cute and sexy... and to spend 40-60.00 on a bra - that's cute and sexy is crazy in my head! Smart and Sexy have bras ranging from 15-18.00!
Buy It: You can buy any of the items shown here or more at Smart & Sexy Online.
As an Extra Savings: You can shop at www.smartandsexy.com and use the discount code HOLBLOG to receive $5.00 off your entire order. This code will expire December 25th.

Jingle Around the Clock with Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey -R&G

Tropical Tradition is known for their Virgin Coconut Oils - but did you know they also carry Organic Honey?!! I am a complete Honey Fan! Especially when you put it on toast - to make the perfect morning snack. Or use it in a glaze on a Ham. Tropical Traditions Prides themselves in harvesting only the Best of the Best in Honey.



A little about Tropical Traditions Honey: Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes." (read more here...)Tropical Traditions has allowed me the opportunity to try their Organic Raw Honey. I was a little surprised when this came in the mail, because it was more crystallized than what I have always been use to. But that just shows the great quality of the product. I am use to buying the store brand squirt bottle honey off the shelf because that was always what seemed to fit in the budget. But after tasting this Organic Honey - I may have a hard time buying anything else. The nice thing about this being crystallized and hard - is the fact that you can easily scoop out the amount that you will need for the item you are preparing. There is no extra honey drizzle left over on the edge of the container - gooking it up so no one can use the honey with out getting sticky hands. The downside of this being solid is the fact that you do have to warm it up to get a easily spreadable texture (for toast). But I don't mind... For the extra goodness in the taste.

If you love Honey as much as I do, you will be pleased to see all the great recipes that are included in Tropical Traditions Recipe Blog. Yummy - Honey Glazed Coconut-Cinnamon Rolls. I don't know about you, but reading that recipe made my mouth water!

And with the Mailing lists, you can get access to "members only" Specials.

The great people at THE BOYS STORE sent me a Shirt and Beanie for my Son. Mind you, my son is 4 - and wearing a 4T in most of his clothes.... We did get a 5 - that way he could wear it through the fall winter and spring (and hopefully get use out of it next fall :-) )We received the Cadet Seven Street Rally Motorcycle Race Shirt and SKATE Beanie. This combo is GREAT! I am a big fan on long sleeve shirts- they are great for layering or just wearing alone. Lil C tried the shirt on (right before bed..) and paraded around in that with his pj bottoms and beanie - pulled down over his eyes! Defiantly a TOO cute sight! The shirt appears to run "true to size". Which is great knowing when buying online. :D He loves his beanie - now he can be like his Uncle! This beanie features the word SKATE on it .

Fabulous Fours - Grubbie Style Shirt Review and Giveaway

If you have a boy, you know how hard to find Clothing that express your child's personality. Grubbie Style has Boys in mind! Grubbie Style was created by a mother of 2 boys who realized how difficult it was to shop for cool, hip clothing that would stand up to the rowdy active lifestyle of boys. Since she couldn't find it, she decided that she could make it! This mother teamed up with her boys and other moms to come up with 15 graphics that boys will love. Grubbie Style partnered up with American Apparel to ensure that their shirts would last through painting with hands, puddle jumping, worm digging, bike riding too fast, climbing, jumping and anything that a boy could think of to do! The creators of Grubbie style have tested their shirts for Durability. According to their website "Of course, nothing is totally kid-proof but these are going to come as close as you can get."

Grubbie style sent me a Long sleeve hoodie for my son to review. First of all, I will have to say that the great thing about Grubbie Style is you can choose everything. You start off by choosing your design, then your shirt, the color of the shirt and also the color of the design. With my son loving dinosaurs and dragons, we chose to have a Green T-Rex design on a black hoodie. We got the size 6. Any time we order something new from a company, we tend to go up a size, just in case it runs small. When it came in the mail, the 'lil man tried it on - and he Loves It! The quality of the hoodie is great! It is soft and flexible - Perfect for the fall and early winter day.
How do you go about getting one of these awesome custom shirts?

****I just wanted to let my readers know that from past experience, when it comes to producing shirts with logos or designs on them, the material color and fiber can make a HUGE difference in how a color may turn out. It tends that a Dark Color Fleece material is going to soak up most of the color, no matter how hard you try, and the design will come out darker.

Fabulous Fours - FishSticks Game Review and Giveaway

Math is a crucial skill in life. And it can be frustrating trying to teach a child basic math skills. But Peaceable Kingdom has come up with a solution for that. Peaceable Kingdom created the game called Fish Stix.... This is a game rated from ages 6-12, but can be played by children younger or older. The rules for the game: Fish Stix is a visual strategy game. To start, players place 1 fish stick in the center of a table where all players can reach it. Give 3 sticks, 1 scoreboard, and 6 fish tokens to each player. Players take turns matching fish by color and direction. For every fish matched, a player moves her fish tokens that number of spaces on her scoreboard. The first player to move all tokens to 10 wins!



Peaceable Kingdom has allowed me to try out this game! I will have to admit, looking at the instructions, I can see why they rated it for an older age (6 year Old). My son (who is almost 4) and myself sort of bent the rules.... and used it as a matching game... and worked on his counting. We would take a handful of Stix and match up the fish (in the correct directions) and then take another stick and match that to where it goes... and when we used about 10 sticks... We worked on counting how many of each "fish pattern" in a row he got! This is defiantly a versatile game.

How do you get this great game for your child?

Buy it: You can buy this game for 14.99 on Amazon

Or
Win It: The great people at Peaceable Kingdom is allowing me to give one of my Readers a FishStix game for their own home.

Fabulous Fours - Amy Adele Invitations Reivew

There are so many generic Invitation and Thank you notes on the market, that they all tend to look alike. But with Amy Adele you can personalize your own. They have everything from Invitation to custom thank you notes to apparel. Amy Adele is a great company. They recycled Paper. Their Recycled paper is Acid free and processed chlorine free. It is made with 100% certified renewable energy. It is procured through responsible use of forest resources. Amy Adele can be found on Facebook



The people at Amy Adele allowed me to do a review of their products. It was MEGA fun to look through all their patterns and decide what fits my son the best. My In the end we chose a Boy's Invitation and Race Car Stationary. Knowing that my son has an upcoming birthday- we were in need of a set of invitations. While looking through the designs, we came across the generic Birthday Boy pattern. This works great because between my 4 year old and myself, we still have not come up with a theme; nor an exact time or place. (does it seem like I am a little behind - since his birthday is less than 3 weeks away). In the end we decided that a Generic Date, Time, Place and RSVP By - followed by a long line - was the best. This way we can hand write the date, time and place in. Since I decided on the style of Invitation we were going to use, I allowed my 'lil guy to pick out the Thank you card. He was dead set on the Race Cars! :D So, we customized them to say his name! How cool is that! Now he has a Card that he can send for ANY occasion - whether it is to say thank you or just to say hi!

I received a set of Invitations and Stationary Cards for Review purposes only. I was not financially compensated for this review. All opinions on this review are 100% mine.

*As a bonus, Check out Amy Adele and leave a comment here about "What product you would order or Have ordered from them". This will get you one bonus entry into any giveaway that I have currently going on for the Birthday Event! To claim this bonus please leave the words "AMY ADELE" in the comment for the giveaway that you are entering.

Fabulous Fours - Rasdog Ready Leash – Review and Giveaway

Rascodog's Ready Leash is not just another leash. It is an innovative NON-retractable dog leash. But the best part... They have the Dog poop bags built in! Their leashes are made from resilient nylon webbing and the highest quality metal hardware.
A Little about RascoDog: What sparked their line of products? The need to make sure our dogs don't leave unwanted messes on our neighbors lawns.
Rascodog Sent me one of their Ready Leashes for review. They have 2 different sizes - the 5/8" and the 1" leash- and 6 different colors. I chose the 1" in the blue. I have 2 dogs - One large on and a smaller dog. The 1" leash is durable enough to hold up to either of them. The handle has a comfortable grip - it is rounded to form to your hand. Other leashes i have tried are either all nylon and have a loop to hold on to, or the handle is thin and flat. The Ready Leash has a handle that is comfortable for any hand to hold. And even better, it comes with 100% bio-degradable bags for when your dog makes a mess. Luckily, I have yet to have to use the poop bags!

How do you get your own ReadyLeash?

Buy It: You can buy one of these leashes on the Rascodog Website (21.99-23.99)

Win it: Rascodog is allowing me to select one of my lucky readers to receive their own Rascodog Ready Leash.

ECOUSEABLE Bottle Reviews

Everyone is looking to become healthier - or become a little greener.... Well now with Ecouseable you can do both. Now you can carry your own water without carrying disposable plastic bottles. Ecouseable has come out with a line of stainless steel bottles. These stainless Steel bottles are 100% recyclable.

What can you carry in your Ecouseable Bottles? "You can carry any cold to warm liquids in your EcoUsable bottle including juice, soda, milk, and alcohol. Our bottles are designed to not break down due to acids in citrus juices and soda drinks. Just fill up with your beverage of choice and you're good to go!"



I was able to test these bottles out. Ecouseable sent me a variety of different bottles - different shapes and sizes. These bottles are perfect for the person on the go. I love the fact that they are environment friendly - and extremely cute! They have basic colors and also design. Also, you can purchase the Wrapz - This way you can make sure your bottle will stand out from the crowd. They have the hooks on them, so you can easily attach them to your belt loop, or your purse or backpack. Everyone in our house hold claimed one - as soon as we opened the box. These make perfect gifts (hint hint - if you're looking for any holiday ideas). They are great for the children to take to their sporting events. I haven't used the Sport bottle topper yet - This will defiantly come in handy during the summer when i start to go rollerblading - that way I wont have to worry about stopping to unscrew a cap so I can have a drink.

**Ecouseable can be found online at http://www.ecousable.com/ The great people at EcoUseable have allowed me to share a Great Coupon Code with all my friends. When you go to check out, enter ECO10 to your order to receive 10% off your items.

Funkey Monkey Review and Giveaway

If you have not heard about Funky Monkey, they are a company that specializes in Freeze Dried Fruits.  "Funky Monkey Snacks are all-natural real fruit made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates Fruit That Crunches!® while retaining fruit's natural goodness. Funky Monkey uses full slices and pieces of real fruits, not the small dices found in other freeze-dried fruit products. Each ounce of Funky Monkey contains three servings of fruit, providing a snack that is delicious, healthy and convenient."  Another great thing about Funky Monkey Snacks - They contain no gluten, wheat, dairy, peanut or tree nuts. This means they are safe for everyone!

Funky Monkey sent my son a set of their snacks.  As a whole family. We loved them!  The bananas tasted like bananas (except crunch), the pineapple like pineapple.  Everything tastes the way they should be.  They come individually packaged in mixtures - so you get more than one flavor to experience at a time. I cant wait until Halloween (well the Friday before).  My 'lil guy is going to be taking a set of snacks to share with his pre-school class.  I just know all the kids in his class will love them.  And the teachers will love them too!  Not only are they healthy, but the follow the NO PEANUT rule in the school.


Buy It:  You can buy these online at Amazon or at stores such as Target, Krogers, Albertson and more

or
Win It:  Funky Monkey has agreed to give one of my lucky readers one of each flavors - That's 7 in total!

Pear Tree Greetings Christmas Cards

Recently Pear Tree Greetings sent me a Set of their Personalized Greeting Cards For Review.  I did not know what to expect for their christmas line - Since I have only reviewed their Thank you cards.  I am pleased to say that these Christmas Cards are beautiful in every quality.
