The Season of Giving With Picture Keeper Connect — The Perfect Gift For Preserving Your Memories
This is a sponsored post in partnership with PictureKeeper and BraVoMark. All opinions are mine
When I was a teenager, I loved to take photos of my family and friends. Where I was, so was my camera and I spend many allowances on film development. Around the same time I began committing Random Act of Kindness, I believed that the more good I put into the world, the more I would get back. As I got older, and continued this I see how one simple act can have a ripple effect and change people’s lives.
During the busy holiday season, it is important to remember that effect we have on people’s lives. One of the best ways to see this effect is in photos, and there is nothing more special this time of year than those moments of kindness.
The one thing that you do not want to worry about is losing those moments frozen in time and with the Picture Keeper Connect you know your photos will be there.
As I venture further into home cooking I find myself needing storage for the food items that I will use for another meal. Due to the storage being limited in my house, i am always looking for storage that stacks and stores easy in fridge or shelf.
The one thing I am always on the lookout for is new, easy and functional storage for my foods and food storage needs. Recently I was sent an assortment of plastic storage from Stor-All Solutions that feature their Press N’ Click system.
Deflecto Caddy and Carousel Organizer Review and Giveaway
I recently took up a new hobby – sewing. When I was purchasing my sewing machine I made sure to do my research and make sure the machine I chose had the stitched and features I wanted. I carefully chose those first fabrics, and the matching threads. I read the patterns instructions from beginning to end, and cut the pattern with nothing less than perfection. I purchased the supplies and felt confident that first time I sewed.
With all the things that I did do, there is one things I DID NOT do – storage for all the accessories I would need as a sewer. As a sewer there is a need for thread storage, sewing machine accessories, scissors, and other implements and notions. When Shoplet reached out to me about reviewing the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer and the Rotating Carousel Organizer, I realized that this could be the storage I failed to get the first time around.
When I was a kid there was a store in the neighboring town that was part thrift store, part supply store and part flea market. This store had everything from toys to dental tools. My father would take me to this store and I would venture off to find some random item I could up-cycle into a useful something.
As I got older, I saw the genius in a store of this nature and now as a homeowner I find myself missing the store I used to see the passage of time inside. I often wish I could go to this store, walk the isles and pickup a random sampling of items that would be useful for my home.
I am very happy to say that I have discovered that long-lost store in the form of a monthly box. The Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com is the random equivalent of that long-lost store. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need in your life that you never knew was missing.
UglySnuglies: Bizarre Bear and Krazy Kitty Review and Giveaway
When I was a child I was always reminded it was “what was on the inside that counts”. I took this lesson and applied it to friends, boyfriends and really everybody I encounter in my adult life. I believe that a person is defined not by their outer shell but what is in their heart and soul is what is important. I believe this to be true and think that it is a message that is getting lost in this beauty conscious world we are living in. There is more importance on filters, injections and basic photo editing then what somebody thinks or feels.
I think that this message needs to be taught at a young level, and while we have all these conveniences of modern photography, I am not sure they should be used to the extent they are outside of professional photography studio. The message of what is on the inside is not as clear as it was when I was growing up.
I believe in this message, so when an offer came across my email to review the UglySnuglies, I was looking forward to learning more about them. UglySnuglies are unique stuffed animals that teach the lesson that “it is what is on the inside that is important”.
