Holiday Cards and Craft Inspiration from Minted.com and Julep.com

As with every holiday season I research crafty things to make to share with my loved ones and leave the photo card making to the pros. Minted.com is a wonderful facilitator in connecting designer with client by providing adorable, classic, whimsical designs and you, as the client, choose the design you want to help showcase your photo. And… the designer gets paid each time you choose their work. Lovely!

Do you love quality paper stock? So do they! The color selections, the fonts, the overall designs are really terrific and it’s made choosing my families Holiday cards easy because the selections are all great! Minted.com is easy to navigate and includes a “live chat” if you need assistance. The prices are reasonable and… you are contributing to artists!

Now that I have the holiday photo card taken care of it’s time for me to get crafty. I have grown up in a creative family so looking for inspiration for something new can be frustrating. ‘Did my cousin make this last year?’ ‘I think my sister did something similar around Easter’. While looking for something special I’ve found the site Julip.com. This site features work by artists that share their creations with step-by-step instructions on how to re-create (or tweek if you like) something with your own hands to love, cherish, give or keep. What ever makes you happy. Recently I found two projects that I can’t wait to get started on. This paper pumpkin will be a sweet addition to our Thanksgiving centerpiece:

There’s also beautiful images and instructions to make your own Typography Cookies. These look so cool! The fonts are beautiful and there’s so many ways to use these crafty cookies. Now that I’ve found Julip.com this season should produce some fun creations.

Wonderful Gift Idea – Personalized Chicken Soup For The Soul

Wonderful Gift Idea - Personalized Chicken Soup For The Soul - Ann Again and again Reviews

Blurb’s Chicken Soup For Your Soul!
Books are a wonderful gift idea. You’re providing a new journey, perhaps visual delights, or personal insight. As Gregory Maguire says “Books fall open, you fall in”. However, it can be really hard buying books for people as gifts. After all, you never know just which books they already have. And then when you do find the right book and give it to them, how do you make it really personal? Put in a book plate? Write an inscription? How do you make the whole thing totally them?

These personalized “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books are one really great way to do it. Not only do you get to choose from five different story themes (from “Christmas Stories” to “Giving thanks”), you can personalize it in ways you just can’t with a conventional book. As the title suggests, these are stories meant to comfort and heal.

Your custom made “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book will truly be a book for them because the book is printed with their name on the cover, as the recipient. And it’s truly from you because your name is printed on the cover as the giver. You can even include an inscription inside the book and on the back cover. Add a photo to the back as well!

There are other nice options to choose from, like the type of cover you’d like and the type of paper. It takes just about five minutes to make it a truly custom book. And, chances are, it’s something they’ll love forever. A 60-page book starts at just $24.95. (Psst… discount code – see below!)

There’s a quick video here: Chicken Soup for the Soul that shows you how to fill in all the info using a simple online tool. The books are all done by Blurb, so you know the quality is going to be great.

Get started here: Blurb’s Chicken Soup for the Soul Book


Surprise!! Here Is A Discount Code Valid Until 11/21/13! Save 25% when you spend $50 or more on print books with code: SAVING

Have fun creating your personal books! :->

Ann Again and again Reviews - Colorado Vacation in Creekside at Beaver Creek

Who’s ready to go skiing? How about Snowboarding? It’s time for Winter family fun! Vacationers looking to leave everyday life behind and enjoy remarkable skiing and the grandeur of a modern alpine ski resort should head to Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Ann Again and again Reviews - Colorado Vacation in Creekside at Beaver Creek

Creekside at Beaver Creek is a luxury ski-in/ski-out property located within the heart of Beaver Creek village. Nestled right up against the bubbling Beaver Creek, guests are steps away from world-class restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. In the morning, you can ski right to the lifts and access nearly 1,900 acres of skiable terrain including immaculately groomed green cruisers to steep powder-filled Aspen groves and chutes. At the end of the day, after a relaxing dip in the hot tub, unwind in a comfortable two or three bedroom condominium, elegantly decorated to make oneself at home.

The Digest Diet – Getting Back On Track

Read More
The Digest Diet - Ann Again and again Reviews

My path to healthier eating and correct portion size RE-starts today.  I’m using The Digest Diet by Liz Vaccariello.

I read about this plan in Reader’s Digest and began the 21-day plan with my husband about a year ago.  We were so good for so long but, oh well, time has shown that we’ve forgotten about our portion sizes and have been enjoying a bit more than our waistlines are comfortable with.  So, as of yesterday, we restarted The Digest Diet.

The key to this eating plan is to eat foods that help release fat storage.  Cayenne pepper, cumin, olive oil to name some of the ingredients used in The Digest Diet recipes.  The first four days are made up of two smoothies a day, which are loaded with protein, and one meal of tasty soups (All recipes included in this book).  On day five you move to one smoothie a day and introduce more dishes into your meal plan  (Again, all recipes are in the book).  What I didn’t take advantage of the first time around was the shopping list, and that was a mistake.  One of the most important things you can do when participating in this healthy eating plan is print the shopping list!

Once you’ve printed the shopping list you should be able to find just about all of the ingredients at your local grocery store.  Fred Meyer (Kroger for some of you) had everything we needed..

OK – Here are my basic stats:  Height – 5’10″.  Weight:  189 lbs.  Let’s see where I’m at next Tuesday  (November 12th).

(Click to visit The Digest Diet website for all the information and to order your copy of The Digest Diet:   www.digestdiet.com)
