Giveaways coming soon...

Hi everyone
Sorry about there not being any giveaways open right now. I have a lot coming but so far they have not reached me. I live in Canada and some of the products I receive come from the US so it takes a bit longer. Hopefully when Jen, our mail lady goes by today she will be nice and bring me something or my friendly Purolator fellow will stop in.
It won't be long and there will be more posted so please don't go away. They are coming. Thanks for your patience.

The Legend of Longwood-US/CAN-Ends May 26/15 CLOSED

Los Angeles, CA – A beautiful new film out of Ireland, The Legend of Longwood, is coming to DVD on June 4 from Shout! Factory, following its appearance at several film festivals in early 2015. An adventure for all ages, the release includes a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette as a bonus feature.

Crumbling castles, mysterious riddles, frightening spirits, beautiful horses and a plucky, fearless heroine - director Lisa Mulcahy has lovingly burnished the most beloved coming-of-age elements in this "quest" film, set in the starkly beautiful landscapes of rural Ireland, set to music from Brave composer Patrick Neil Doyle.

The film stars Lucy Morton as Mickey Miller, a thoroughly modern 12-year-old American girl whose great love is horses. Not surprisingly, she has little enthusiasm for her mother’s plan to take Mickey and her little brother to start a new life in a run-down mill she has inherited in Longwood, a windswept Irish town at the end of the world. Mickey’s presence in Longwood coincides with the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler who found no peace after his baby daughter was taken from him, and whose appearances always mean that something evil is going to happen to the villagers. Mickey hears and sees things that others can’t, and forms an immediate bond with Silver, the proudest, haughtiest, most untamable horse in the stalls of a nearby castle. Realizing that she is directly linked to the story of the Black Knight, Mickey and her new friend Sean set out to redeem the knight so as to bring lasting peace to Longwood. But first she must save the lives of seven horses and thwart the evil plans of a greedy, ambitious woman – a mighty handful even for the bravest girl!

Maya the Bee Movie-US/CAN-May 22/15


Maya is a little bee with a big heart. She dreams of an exciting life of freedom, fun and adventure – the world is simply far too interesting to stay inside a hive! Her funny attempts to fit in bring her into trouble with the Queen’s narrow-minded royal advisor, Buzzlina. With her best friend Willy, Maya buzzes out into the meadow on an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery.

Freshly hatched bee Maya is a little whirlwind and simply won't follow the rules of the hive. One of these rules, of course, is not to trust other bugs, especially the hornets that live beyond the meadow. But sweet Maya can't help but make friends with all kinds of other bugs, including a violin-playing grasshopper, a dung beetle and even a young hornet named Sting. When the Royal jelly is stolen, the hornets are the prime suspects and Maya is thought to be their accomplice. Now, its up to Maya and all of her new friends to prove her innocence and find the missing Royal jelly!

One of the best-known and beloved children’s brands of all-time, the stories of Maya The Bee have been passed down among generations of families for years. Originally a German children’s novel by Waldemar Bonsels, The Adventures of Maya the Bee was published over a hundred years ago in 1912. Since the original publishing, the book has been translated into many other languages and enjoyed by children all over the world. In addition to the book, Maya The Bee is also a comic book series, appeared in various iterations as animated series and now a major animated feature film.

“MAYA THE BEE MOVIE” Two-Disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack contains the following special features: Movie presentation on Blu-ray 3D and 2D, DVD and a Digital Copy of the film

Lampe Berger Review...

Are you still looking for a special Mothers Day gift? Well take a look.
I think I have one of the nicest smelling homes in the country. I received another lamp from LampeBerger last week and I love it.

The bottle of scent I received this time is Sensual Bouquet, and it smells awesome. All of the scents are wonderful.

When the package arrives you will get the bottle of scent, the funnel and the lamp. It is so easy to use. Take a look at this:
I can't get the picture any bigger but when you first use this lamp you take out the wick,
pour the scent in, the whole bottle, put the wick back in and wait for 20 minutes for the wick to get soaked with the scent. After that, take a bbq lighter or a lighter and light the top of the lamp. The flame will come up and you wait for 2 minutes before you blow the flame out. Return the caged cover to the lamp and enjoy the scent that will go through your home. Just like in this video.

You will have a wonderful smelling home that everyone will be envy of. You can buy one of these lamps by going to and finding a store near you. Take a look and you might just find a nice lamp for yourself or even one for Mom for Mother's Day.

Motherhood Realized
An Inspiring Anthology for the Hardest Job You'll Ever Love

Power of Moms
We believe that family life is beautiful and that motherhood is a privilege. But we also believe it is often really hard to see all that beauty when we're in the midst of mothering. So often, we feel like we're spread too thin. We feel like we don't match up. Our hearts want to do more than our hands can manage. And every day, as we cycle through household duties, discipline, errands, conversations, teaching, and hundreds of unexpecteds, we're often left tired, worried, and in need of some extra inspiration and encouragement. Power of Moms is an online community of deliberate mothers. Since 2007, millions of mothers from all backgrounds who are striving to be the best they can be have gathered to our website to learn and grow together. Time and again, our posts receive comments that say something like, I am going to print this out and put it on my nightstand so I can read it again and again." We've been concerned about those nightstands . . . getting allcluttered up with paper. So we've selected dozens of our most popular posts and compiled them neatly into this book just for you.
This book isn't just a book. It's a tangible representation of a living, breathing community of mothers. Motherhood is the hardest job we'll ever love, and it's so much better when we're doing it together.

Temporary Tattoos Giveaway-US/CAN-Ends May 5/15 CLOSED

Have you ever thought of getting a tattoo? Do you have any tattoos now? I thought about this before and my kids kept telling me to "go for it". Well today I finally did it. I got myself a tattoo. A temporary one that is. I am too chicken to go for the real thing. I am not fond of needles of any type.
Anyhow, I received a few temporary tattoos and I chose the butterflies to put on my arm. I like the color and think it looks kind of cute. What do you think? Besides at my age I am too old to go getting the real thing. lol This is about as far as my tattoos will get. Temporary that is.
I wasn't sure where I wanted to put this but decided on my upper arm.
Joelle, the designer has many designs to choose from on her website here I received the butterflies, and these others.
These are very easy to apply. You just decide where you want to put it, peel off the clear paper, press down with picture down and apply a wet cloth and hold it for 30 seconds or so. Then peel off the back paper and voila! you have a temporary tattoo. With your tattoos when you receive them, you will also get a paper showing you how to apply it and where the best places are to put them. Some areas are long lasting and some are not.
This is one good way to make your mind up if you are ready for the "real" thing and getting a tattoo. For me, I am quite happy with these.
One lucky person will win $30 worth of their choice of tattoos. So get your entries in today and you could be sporting a new tattoo real soon. Good luck.
