New Design!

So what do you think of my new revamped site? I LOVE IT! I have been so bored with my blog design since day one. I switched it to a different template to attempt to spice things up, but no such luck. I found this great site called Retro Designz which is owned by a fellow Mom Packer. She asked if I had any ideas on what I wanted and I mentioned a few colors and she created everything I wanted and then some. I am so thrilled to finally have a fun looking blog! I much rather be Exotic Evie then Plain Jane...hehehe! So if you need a new website or blog design check out Retro Designz and you can get a fun design like me.

13 Ways I'm "Green"

The closer we are getting to Earth Day the more it's on my mind. I'm the first to admit I'm not the most Earth Friendly person, but then when I started my little list of things I do to help the environment I realized I am making a contribution. Sure there are always ways to improve and I hope to grow my list. Here are a few ways I am "Green"

1. Wash in cold water (except towels and sheets)
2. Use hand towel in dryer (helps absorb water which dries clothes faster)
3. Cut dryer sheets in half (I just started doing this)
4. Use natural laundry detergent (I just started doing this)
5. Use Borax for laundry softener and cleaning (love this stuff)
6. Use natural cleaning products (if you know me you know I hate harsh chemicals. Once in a while I use them because it's what works, but not often. I use BabyGanics, Borax, Holy Cow, and Vinegar and water)
7. Online billing to save on paper waste
8. E-mail my newsletters to customer to save on paper
9. Use ceiling fans
10. Use natural soaps and lotions (Love, love, love my Ciao Bella line)
11. Buy fruit from local market (will do this in the summer)
12. Pass Miss K's clothes to Miss A or friends
13. Recycle, re-use and re-purpose (still trying to improve in this area)

Happy 4th Birthday Miss A!

Happy Wednesday!

Notice the little girl in her blue tutu, it's Miss A. As I've mentioned before she loves her Be Jeweled tutu. She also loves her new Lil Sister bracelet. I've added a lot of new braceletes and still have some more jewelry to come. Does your child have an allergy, then you have to check out the medical line I just added to my STORE. You can have it say whatever your childs allergy is. As a person with food allergies I can not tell you how thrilled I am to carry this line:) I almost forgot to mention Miss A is also wearing a new hair clip I created and will add to my site very soon a long with a bunch of other designs.

Over at Reviews by Heidi she has a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate to my STORE. From now till May 2nd you can still join in the fun in Great Blog Hunt. They have several great prizes including a $50 gift certificate to my STORE. If there's anything you want to see as a future giveaway, let me know:)

Next giveaway starts Sunday April 20th. If you want me to send you an e-mail prior to sign up for my Newsletter on the left side.

Advertise with Me...

over at my Little Piddles Top 100 List List. All you have to do is have a family friendly site and add my link to your site as well.

On a different note...
As anyone who has more than one child or has siblings you can relate to what I'm about to say. My girls can be the best of friends one minute and battle it out the next. We have purchased Socker Boopers because we believe in safe! In most cases it's the older sibling who terrizes the younger one (yes I speak from experience oh yes so much experience.) In our family it's my younger one. She is sweet as pie, but man if you get on her bad side the claws come out. I beleive you will see her on the Women's Division of the UFC in about 20 years. You laugh, but I think this may be her future career. So when I see them be so sweet to one another I treasure it. Granted it does happen often, but not always long enough for me to grab the camera. The other day I woke up to find both girls under the blanket on the couch in the living room watching cartoons. I'm not sure what was sweeter, letting me sleep a little longer or them just snuggling. Either way I had to take a picture to remember next time one is screaming "Mom!"
