You are so happy that baby is trying to walk but if only they were 2 feet taller. What if there was something that you could put on baby that would give them the security and support  both of you want and need, but yet save you from walking like the Hunchback of Notre Dame when you get finished walking with your child? Well you are not the only one. The Juppy Baby Walker is here to help you out. The Juppy Baby Walker is a parent friendly way to assist your child learn to walk in safety. Check out the video to see how it works.

I received a Juppy Baby Walker to review. As you can see below Lil' Bit took to it like a duck to water.

She was not too sure at first and kept ahold of it but soon learned that she was safe. Daddy, Mommy and both grandmas are happy with the Jumpy too. No more walking bent over with Lil' Bit holding their fingers.

We tried it on Lil' Bit's cousin who is larger than her but because it is made out of 100% cotton it fit him just fine. He is not trying to walking yet but was very comfortable and happy in the Juppy as you can see.

 The Juppy is designed to be used with children under 35 pounds. It comes with adjustable straps so you can shorten or lengthen them for your comfort. It has a zipper in the back with 2 Velcro straps to adjust the fit of the Jupy to your baby.The Jumpy should never be used without adult supervision.

The Juppy Baby Walker has recently introduced the new Juppy "Momentum" which comes in pink, blue and black. It also comes with a carrying bag. It retails for $29.99 on Juppy Baby Walker web site.

Decorate Your Christmas Tree Like a Pro

    Don't you just love those pictures of  decorated Christmas trees in the magazines? The beautiful trees that you just know us ordinary folks could never equal.Well actually you can decorate your tree like a pro. There are some very talented ladies who have come to our aid.

    Becky McCraney and Kathy Harrison are sisters who started a one of a kind holiday store called  Miss Cayce's Christmas Store. The store is named after their grandmother who inspired them to make memories through traditions, family gatherings and holiday decorating. The retail store has been open for almost 30 years in their hometown of Midland, TX. Customers come from far and wide to see the Halloween, fall and Christmas merchandise from all over the world. There are themed Christmas trees from funky fun to traditional elegant to see. There are also custom floral wreaths, arrangements and decorated garlands to see and purchase.
  These two talented ladies along with their sister Jennifer Sharrick inspired by their success with the store started a business called Show Me Decorating so they could share their passion for creating, inspiring and educating others to decorate like a pro.
    They started out with a DVD and guidebook and have branched out to an App for your iPad and iPhone
In their words " Their mission is to “save the world” from ugly Christmas trees by supplying know-how and great product from their online shop that mixes with anyone’s own treasures to create magical memories for your family". I received one of the Recipe for Holiday Decorating DVDs to review. I can read how to do something crafty and most of the time do it but this DVD is great. It takes you step by step through decorating a 7 foot tree. Until I watched this DVD I never really realized that there is no reason to be intimidated or afraid to try decorating a tree so it looks like the ones you see in pictures. The DVD comes with a guidebook that follows the DVD exactly. I would highly recommend getting this DVD and giving it a try.

Just a side note  Black Friday they will be having a 15% off sale with free shipping. Here is the link to their online store http://showmedecorating.com/ for anyone who wants to take advantage.

Disclaimer: I received a DVD to review. No other compensation was received. These are my opinions your experience may be different.

Stand Out in the Crowd Business Cards(Giveaway)(Closed)

How do you keep track of businesses that you only use every so often? There is nothing I hate worse than needing something repaired and not being able to remember the company that I used about 3 years ago. I have learned to ask for a business card and it usually ends up on the fridge under a magnet not stuffed in a drawer like the phone book. When I go to a home show I make a point of looking for business cards at the booths that offer something I am interested in. I would say that about 75% of the business cards I have acquired over time are the same rectangular pieces of paper. The other 25% are die cut. What do I mean by die cut? They have rounded corners or cut in shapes. They stand out in the crowd.
Do you want your business or blog to stand out in the crowd? Check out UPrinting.  UPrinting is the company that can help you out with your business card printing needs. If you don't have your design yet they can help your create it. If you have a design you can upload your artwork files to their web site. Before you finalize your order you can see a free proof to make sure the design looks like you want it to. I  got business cards from UPrinting for my blog and was very please with the results.
