Raw Honey Giveaway!




Welcome to the Tropical Traditions Raw Honey Giveaway

&
 Sponsored by Tropical Traditions

Tropical Traditions is a great site to get a number of different organic products from coconut oil to household cleaning products.  I am super excited about my latest find though.  I got to try the Canadian Raw Honey they have and it is absolutely delicious.  Raw honey is a honey that has not been heated and processed like many store bought honeys which means it has more nutritious value.

Review/Giveaway for Wigglo Pets

This review/giveaway is hosted by The Momma And Boys

Wigglo Pets was created by a 9 year old girl.  What makes the pets great is that their is no mess, no walking, and no feeding.  The 9 year old girl, Maya, started her company and has used it to raise money for Haiti Tsunami and for a Humane society.  Now she is using a portion of her earning to go towards KidzForACure.org for pediatric cancer research. 

The Momma's Boy #1 was so excited to receive his Wigglo Pet.  He named it Bob and carried to around on his shoulder.   He even had to make sure all his friends saw it as well. 

He loved how when he would pet Bob, the Wigglo Pet, he would react to each touch.  His friends and him have a blast with them.

SLC - Color Run 5K!



Get ready, because on August 24th,2013 , The Color Run is coming to downtown Salt Lake City! I'm excited to be part of promoting this awesome event. My cousins have participated in it once in Arizona and I was involved in a similar event last year here in Utah but I've been wanting to do The Color Run for awhile so I'm really happy they come to Utah now! 




The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust me, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!  With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color! 




Doesnt this look like so much fun!? Let me know if you are going to go - it would be fun to meet you in real life at the race! 

If you sign up before May 1st, your registration is discounted. If you want to use the coupon code COLORNITEOWL (Utah peeps only) it will give you another $5 off your registration when you sign up in a group.

This event has the great possibility of selling out quickly so if you want to go make sure you sign up sooner than later!

Cricut Project - New Iron On Vinyl!


Cricut recently released their new iron-on vinyl and I got a few colors & a couple tshirts to create a project with. I was sent blue (cyan), black and gray. They also have pink, teal, white,  maize (yellow), red, glitter pink, gold & black. Quite a variety to choose from! You can see them all here

I cut out some birds for my project with paper first and laid them down so I could make sure I was going to do this right and determine what sizes I wanted.


Working in Cricut Craftroom with my birds. This bird is found on the cartridge 
3 Birds - On Parade.

If you need to flip your image, now is the time to do it!


Putting the vinyl in for the first time - really nervous! The edges of the vinyl hang off the mat a tiny bit but it didnt seem to cause a problem for me.
When I hit Cut and the Settings box opened, I picked Custom for the material, depth set to 3 and speed as medium.
Make sure you put the very shiny side face down on the sticky mat.


Wheee....so many little birds!

Had to decide which layout I wanted to do. This one or...

this one?

I ended up choosing this design. 

I found that it was best to iron the little birds on with no towel, just the highest setting for Cotton/Linen. Do not use steam! You want to spend about 10 seconds or so with the iron, maybe 15 seconds depending how big your vinyl image is. Be careful especially because a towel is not being used. Make sure that the shiny shiny side is facing UP now because that is what you will peel off after the image has attached to the shirt after ironing. You'll want to wait until it's cool to start peeling off the top layer. If you find some of the image still pulls up then all is not lost. You can put the shiny plastic layer back on the image and iron again. Just do not put the iron on the design once you have peeled off that shiny plastic layer. If you have questions, just ask me in the comment section. 

Once your design is ironed on, flip the material inside out and iron on the backside of the vinyl.

Finished product. So happy with how it turned out!

What do you want to make with the new Vinyl from Cricut?

Grandway Review - Laundry Bag!

I'm so in love with this laundry bag. From the packaging to the actual product - how could you not be?!


It comes in a super cute box.


When you take the lid of there is a piece of tissue paper (not pictured) and a plastic cover protecting your bag


Love the material, it feels heavy duty yet flexible and not stiff. 
Made from 100% premium cotton. 
There is a  dual draw string at the top to cinch the bag tight.


I put a pair of my 9.5 size shoes next to the bag for comparison. Not sure if that helps much but these bags are large (22"x32" on the website) and can pack a lot of clothes! My friend has one of these bags and used it on a trip to the hospital when her daughter had to stay overnight. So! Not just for laundry or dry cleaning (same difference I guess) but can be used for traveling too.

Here's the link if you want to purchase one yourself or check out the other designs/colors
