Purex baby crystals Giveaway

Oh baby...take 2!

Purex Baby Crystals

I love the way babies smell.  I think its usually the lotion.  I love the way baby laundry smells too!  Purex has just come out with a new product in the purex crystals line that is developed to be gentle for babies' skin.  Its 87% natural and goes in at the start of the wash...so you don't have to waste time waiting to add it in and it spends more time with your babies clothes to make them smell fresher longer.  It is safe for ALL clothes...even sleepwear.  I was given a bottle to try and share my opinions.....I think it smells GREAT!

Even though my "babies" are getting bigger, I am still going to wash their blankets with this fun softener for the smell of it. Then when they want to snuggle, I can still pretend they are my little babies!  :-)

You can win one too!  Fill out this form and GOOD LUCK!

PUREX provided me with a sample of Purex Crystals for Baby in exchange for a product review.  However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Book of Mormon stories that my iPad tells to me

Book of Mormon stories that my iPad tells to me...

I guess the song has been rewritten by the people down at Grandin Press.

They have taken all the old Stories from the Book of Mormon readers that we all grew up with and have given them a facelift!  They are all digital now and they include a "read to me" feature. This is my 4 year old's favorite way to "read her scriptures."

Originally published in hard cover from 1978 to 1994, the bestselling Illustrated Stories from the Book of Mormon are now available for handheld devices. No other illustrated work is as complete or as advanced. The set of 32 eBooks now includes read-aloud audio, highlighted full text of the Book of Mormon, and easy-to-use interactive controls.
  • 1,700+ pages
  • 1,100+ illustrations
  • 8+ hours of dramatized audio
  • Full text of The Book of Mormon   

They are so fun and bring the scriptures to life with the narrative and pictures.  These truly are for the rising generation!  

Once you download them, they will be stored in iBooks and you can choose one to read from the bookshelf.  My 4 year old has no trouble navigating her way through iBooks and loves to "read her scriptures."  I am also super excited to share these fun stories with my primary kids.  Its also a great and super quick Family Home Evening idea!  Just pick a story and push play!

I am super excited to share a special promotion going on right now!  If you use the code REIDHEAD, you will be able to get the ENTIRE set for $30 off!  YEAH!  That's a huge discount!  And since it's digital, the whole set won't break the bank OR your back (trying to carry the paper books around, lol).  This special price will only be good through MARCH 31st!  (What a great use for some of your tax return!)  Check it out at http://www.grandinpress.com/illustrated-book-of-mormon-stories/  and use the promo code REIDHEAD

AND if that's not enough, They are going to give away a complete set to a LUCKY reader...  THATS RIGHT!  And if we get enough entries, there will be MORE sets to give away (up to a possibility of 3 complete sets!)  Share this with your friends and family members!  The more entries, the more that we can give away!

I was given a set of the scripture stories to try out and review but all opinions and stories expressed are my own.

Tough as a Mule team

Have you ever heard of 20 Mule Team Borax?  Its a big deal!  There are LOTS of crafty things on pinterest that you can do with BORAX!  

Borax Laundry booster

Just some of the fun things are: 
Borax crystal snowflakes
Borax Bouncy Balls
Crystal Hearts
Borax slime
and get rid of ants

I have a bunch of these fun projects on my to do list!

BUT.....Crafty things was not its original purpose!

Its ACTUALLY a 100% natural mineral from the earth.  Once its taken from the ground, its washed, dried and boxed to be sold.  The common name for BORAX is sodium tetraborate (a naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes).  There is nothing added!

It also is a natural water softener...who knew!  When you add a 1/2 cup of borax to your laundry, along with your regular purex laundry soap, it will improve the soaps cleaning power and help keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes!  What a great laundry booster!

I have been using this for years!  I LOVE the way it makes my clothes feel.  I also feel that when I do add it to the load of laundry that the clothes get cleaner.  I will usually add it to the extra grubby clothes to give it the extra kick! 

20 Mule Team Borax' website has great cleaning tips too!

The Borax - Fresh Year, Fresher Laundry Facebook Sweepstakes is underway.  That means you can enter to win the $1,500 Grand Prize, or one of 171 coupons for FREE BORAX! You can sign up once a day until February 22nd, 2013!

I also have some free boxes to give away!

Borax provided me a free sample of their product so I could review it.  However, all opinions expressed here are my own.
