Create Custom Photo Cards with @Mixbook


I bet you're familiar with Mixbook through their amazing customer promotions and photo books, but did you know that they also have photo cards and invitations?  And that they have tons of great designs too?




Mixbook was very generous in letting us try out their photo card services.  We chose to make and order some custom 5x7 flat Christmas cards for the upcoming holiday season.  It really was hard to choose just one design but in the end we went with one that is a trendy mix of turquoise and red, a hot color combo right now.  




The kids really didn't want to pose for some pics to use on the Christmas cards but in the end, I think I got some pretty good shots to use.  I changed them to black and white and the used Mixbook's easy-to-use built in website software to make our cards.  It truly was very, very easy to use as well as user friendly.  We were impressed with how many additional elements and fonts they have available for use on your cards.  For example, I picked a little blue bird to add to the back of the card because I love birdies so much!  Having all these different elements really allows you to customize your card.


I must also note that I was highly impressed with the quality of the envelopes.  They are made from heavy stock and just really nice, something you don't find often when purchasing cards and invitations.  Definitely a nice touch.




Mixbook has many different styles and themes for cards and invitations such as baby, birthday, wedding, engagement, rehearsal dinner, save the date, showers and more.  You can literally start your own design from scratch or use one of the thousands of professionally designed templates.  Mixbook is also your destination for creating photo books and calendars.  Don't forget to follow Mixbook on Facebook and Twitter for new product announcements and great promotions!



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.


We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
