It's getting closer to Fall, which is my favorite time of the year! School has started, and as a mom of five kids, that's always a good thing! Thanksgiving comes and then Christmas. Trees change, weather cools, and best of all I can have all kinds of pumpkin desserts! A couple of years ago I discovered that I love pumpkin ice cream, and I can't wait to have some this year. I start making fall and Christmas items, both for my shop and for gifts. It's a fun time and I look forward to it every year. Enjoy Labor Day weekend, because it's our last summer hoorah before Fall!

Hats for Fall & Winter

I am working on LOTS of new hats for fall & winter. I'll be adding them to my shop near Mid-Late August. My prices are always affordable and competitive, and I will be having discounts such as the more you buy the better the deal! Everyone needs to remember to keep their heads warm, because it keeps your body warmer too when your head is covered. These will be great hats to buy for your family, and awesome Christmas gifts. Keep your eyes open for the newest hats and deals! Thanks for stopping by! God bless!

I Cut My Cell Phone Bill in Half!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Ever since I switched to Straight Talk and cut my cellphone bill in half, I have felt so much richer!  I can go out to eat more often and buy little gifts for myself.  Not only that, I have no contract anymore so I feel like I'm not stuck with my plan or any commitment.  The fact that there are no surprises on my bill is an extra bonus!  The coverage is nationwide and amazing.  The phones to choose from are all brand name, high quality phones like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.  hook, line and sinker

The plans are awesome, from the "All you need plan" everything you need which is 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30 MB of web data every month to the unlimited plan that is only $45 and includes calls, texts, web and picture messaging!  I have not seen a deal like that anywhere else!  Whatever your need is, they can meet it.  Even 411 calls are included, not like the other companies.  Not to mention there are no activation fees, or deactivation or termination fees.  International calls are always a low rate too, so you can call friends and family overseas and not pay a ton!  call a friend

I love that there are even reconditioned phones for as little as $10, and they have camera, mp3 player, mobile web access and blue tooth capabilities!  These are great for my kids, mom knows best, because I'm not paying hundreds of dollars for a phone that they will eventually lose or break!  This is the perfect solution for them. There are also cool smart phones with touch screens and all the other features!  Check out the following YouTube videos for more info on these great phones: and
