Fulcrum Gallery – Golden Wildflowers I Review

Fulcrum Gallery – Golden Wildflowers I Review and Print Giveaway

Megan Meagher Golden WildflowersOne of the most challenging parts about having a house is deciding on the various decor in each room.

After over 4 years in our home I am finally deciding how I want to decorate each of the rooms. For my craft room I decided on bright colors that would always inspire creativity, and the art in the room is my art throughout the years. Our living room is a mix of photos and sunflowers in a neutral palette. For our bathroom I went with a coastal/under the sea theme since we live on the west coast.

For our bedroom, I am still firming up my plans, but so far it is a collection of my art creations and various prints that evoke calm and relaxation. A couple of months ago I created a button project that expresses love. Since I have wanted to find a floral print that would coordinate well with the existing photos and prints I am always on the look-out. When FulcrumGallery.com reached out for a review from their “Timeless Chic” collections I was totally willing.

Zazzle.com: Summer Sunshine 2016 Giveaway

Zazzle.com – Summer Sunshine 2016 Review and Giveaway

PIllow and LIttle Miss Sunshine TshirtSunshine permeates everything I do and who I am to a degree. When I was young my father would make dinner reservations under the nickname “sunshine” and many times my default nickname for people is “sunshine”. There is something special and magical about the sunshine – it brings a warmth, light and overall positive feelings.

Since I am based on the Pacific Ocean, the sunshine is as abundant as water. Even on days when the sun does not shine, there is still a glimmer of sunlight that shines through. My house is situated that it benefits many days from natural light, which is wonderful for the humans and felines in the house. There is a brightness that shines living in the land of never ending sunshine!

On days that the sunshine is hiding, I love to be reminded of otherwise sunny days. I came upon Zazzle.com and immediately knew that they would have what I desired for those otherwise sunless days.

Boca Ball Review

Boca Ball Review and Giveaway

Sunshine on Boca BallI often mention that bloggers get many unique opportunities thrown their way, and a recent delivery I received exemplifies this fact perfectly. More often than not the post office leaves keys in the smaller box for the larger delivery boxes. This particular day I did not think much of the small key for the larger box scenario, since it is a common occurrence as a blogger.

As I opened the mail box I was expecting a square or rectangle box, and what I discovered was in fact a round colorful ball.

I received a handmade ball from Boca Ball, and I can tell you it brightened my day!

FramedArt.com Review and Giveaway

Sunflower Print from Framed Art When you are young the decorations in your living space are generally nothing more than posters of the idols and hair bands of our youth (at least these were my decorations). As you age your decorations age with you and the posters of teen idols get put on high shelves and are replaced with new-found loves, passions, causes and interests.

I discovered as I aged I found a peace in sunflowers. There is something about sunflowers that evoke an image of sun, happiness and hope reminding us that the sun always rises. I have always been a fan of bright and happy flowers.

I have one sunflower painting in my house that my best friends mother painted for me about 13 years ago and I have wanted to add to the budding collection ever since. I recently was given the opportunity to order a print from FramedArt.com to aid in my ultimate goal of a sunflower gallery of themed artwork in my home.

Zazzle.com Review

Zazzle.com – Review and Giveaway

zazzleLetterform_whiteWe are approaching a historically significant time – an election year. When ever an election comes along the pundits and commentators speak up and compare current elections to previous elections. There have been many historical elections in our history, but in my lifetime there is one election that rises above the others: Reagan/Bush – 1984.

If you are unfamiliar with this particular election let me refresh your memory. Ronald Reagan was the Republican candidate with his running mate/future Vice-President/President George H. Bush. Reagan carried 49 of the 50 states and it’s victory ranks 7th of all Presidential elections.

I am a nostalgic person, so instead of wearing a shirt supporting the current presidential nominees I decided that I want to go back what is perceived to be a simpler time – 1984. I began to look for a shirt that I could wear that was comfortable and would be adaptable to wear to the store or at home writing. I came upon Zazzle.com and immediately knew that they would have what I desired.

Zazzle Reagan BushZazzle.com is not only a wonderful place to get your election related clothing but it is a great place to get anything printed your mind can create. Zazzle not only has pre-made and pre-printed products but they can also print your own designs. There are other sites that limit what you can print on, or create, but not Zazzle. This site allows you to create anything from t-shirts, guitar picks, flash drives, fabric, aprons, bumper stickers, beer koosies and blankets to name a few. I counted over 80 items that you can have a image or logo printed on, the only limit is your imagination (and copyright laws).

FiveFingerTees.com Review and Giveaway

Two Shirts Five Finger TeesIt is no secret that us bloggers spend many hours in front of our computers. This constant state of sitting makes the need for comfortable clothes almost a work uniform. My personal uniform is comfortable pants and a t-shirt, with a comfy pair of socks. The reason for this level of comfort is when you are sitting for a majority of the day, you want to be as comfortable as possible. I am always on the lookout for additions to my collection of comfortable clothes.

I recently happened upon FiveFingerTees.com and I have to say WOW! The first thing I noticed was the cartoon theme on the top banner. The fun banner let me know immediately that I had happened upon a fun website. I was right, they have so many shirts that I guarantee you will not be able to choose just one.

Five Finger Tees offers a wide (and I mean WIDE) variety of movie, television, sports, political, music, animal, zombie, video game and pop-culture t-shirts. There are many other varieties available and they even have humorous holiday shirts. The company is based in Boston Massachusetts and is completely family owned and operated.
