Zazzle.com – Summer Sunshine 2016 Review and Giveaway
Sunshine 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.
Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – May/Cat Mom’s Day 2016
While I have not had the best history with mothers in my life, I can see the love and see how a mothers love is irreplaceable. Due to my shaky history with my own mother I think at times i might over compensate with Maggee and Murfee.
Let me explain a little further to bring some clarity. I was raised from a young age by my father and while I learned many valuable lessons, I did miss my mother. It was made clear early on that my mother wanted nothing to do with me, and while this was hurtful, it ended up being for the best. I did not have an example of a mother, so I base my experience on snippets of mom’s i have seen my life.
At times I think this has worked well, and it really is a broad example base. Recently Jason has made comments and dropped words such as “helicopter” and “smother and mother”. I think during this time of year, as much as I love the moms in my life, I overcompensate with my two cats. Lucky for me they seem to love the love!
It was announced that this months Cat Lady Box would have a “Mothers” theme, and they delivered. To say that each box is “pawsome” is an understatement. Each month is better than the last, (see previous reviews here). The box exterior is printed with the logo in black and is almost a proud announcement of your Cat Lady status. Once the box is open, you are greeted with a black tissue with a sticker enclosing everything in the box. The box is packaged well, and there is space enough that items do not get smooshed and smashed together.
Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – January 2016
Jason and I love our cats, there is no denying this. If you were to pick up either of our phones there are more cat photos than human photos.
Our cats are these big personalities packed in little bodies. Murfee has a personality that mirrors my personality and Maggee mirrors Jason. Jason can roll with the punches, and is always calm and that describes our Maggee perfectly. Murfee is always on alert and jumps when he hears a loud noise – just like his human momma.
We have a lot of fun around here dissecting their personalities and comparing them to each of us and wondering what we are accurate about and what is just dreaming. We think they know their names, but really they know their tones, but I swear when they come up to us, they are conveying pure love. I am proud to be a cat mom to these two awesome little creatures, and tell them so each day.
This months Cat Lady Box was an ode to the “cat lady”. Each month the box is wonderfully put together and is “absolutely pawsome”. I say it every month and each month I mean it, each month it is just as good as the previous month, (see previous reviews here). The box exterior continues with the new box design and looked different then the previous printed and stamped versions. I loved being greeted by the black tissue paper and sticker, as I unfurled my package I was filled with excitement!
We 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.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).
