Win a Crayola “Get Out and Create” gift pack! {Sponsored}

Crayola is always creating some of the coolest art products for kids.  They recently sent me a “Get Out and Create” gift pack to review.  It contained: (1) Pack of Washable Sidewalk Chalk, (1) Color Wonder Mini Stow and Go and (1) Color Wonder Mess-Free Glitter Paper and Markers.  My 5-year-old had a great time using these products and one of my lucky readers will WIN the same products too! Woohoo!

I love having Crayola products around the house.  I've mentioned before that my kids LOVE playing outside and sidewalk chalk is a summer favorite. There are also times when my kids need some quiet-time, and having a good stash of arts and crafts products is essential.  The product my son loved the most was the Crayola mini Stow and Go.  The Color Wonder Mini Stow & Go gives kids a compact portable writing surface and storage for their markers.  Moms will like it because the color wonder markers color only on special paper so they won’t color skin, furniture or the car! 

This was perfect for him to take to his bothers baseball game.  It kept him busy on the sidelines and it was easy to pack up when it was time to go. since everything stores nicely back in it's own case.

Another product we received in our package was the Disney Princess Color Wonder glitter paper and markers.  To my surprise, my son wanted to give this a try and the results were great.  Wouldn't this be a great product to give a little girl to keep her busy in the car or on the airplane to Disney?

Speaking of airplanes, my son also packed his Crayola Mini Stow and Go on our recent flight to England.  It was the perfect size to fit on the tray and kept him busy for quote a while.  If you're going on a long flight with your child, this will fit nicely in the carry on luggage and hopefully, keep them busy for a while, like it did for my son!

Now, onto the sweepstakes....  As I mentioned earlier, one of my lucky readers will win these products from my friends at Crayola.  Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.

Today is my mom's blogging debut as she guest posts to tell you about's Valentine Cards.

Did you ever search for a greeting card but couldn't find one with the sentiment you were looking for? Valentines Day can be one of those holidays where you really want something personal and a store-bought card just won't do. Whether it's a card for my husband or my grandkids, I always like giving Valentine's card that truly conveys how I'm feeling.

I was completely in awe when I opened a Treat card, sent from my daughter.  It had a picture of myself and my 3 daughters taken a few days prior on the front of it and then a personal message written by her inside thanking me for a great family dinner.  Even on the back of the card it had a personal  touch.

When I went to the website, I learned that you can even include one of many gift cards with your card. You can make a card for as low as $1.99 and they send it to the recipient. So send a Valentine's card to someone special and enter the giveaway below to win 5 cards from
