Wordless Wednesday






My son was 15 months old in this picture. Instead of getting upset, I grabbed my camera to capture this moment. I will later remind him, when he becomes an adult, of how mischievous he was.

Review of Makit - Make a Plate Kit





Wouldn't you love to keep your kids drawings forever. Your own Picasso or Michelangelo. You can with Makit.  I had the wonderful opportunity to review the Make-a-Plate Kit.


Make A Plate Kit $16.99



Makit was started by Bob Hodges in 1969. One day a neighbor, who was a teacher, told him wouldn't it be nice to have your kids artwork on something useful instead of it falling off the refrigerator and throwing it away. And so began the concept of Makit Today millions of people have used Makit for art projects and family keepsakes. Celebrities too have created and signed plates for charity like Dick Clark, Madonna, Matthew Broderick, and Nathan Lane just to name a few.




The idea is simple. You purchase a kit that includes 5 drawing sheets and markers, plus one pre-paid certificate for processing the artwork. The plates are BPA free, dishwasher safe and break resistant.  The plates are not microwavable.






My son and I had a mommy and son time. We had fun creating new pictures. You draw whatever you wish and then ship back the drawings you would like to make into a plate. You mail it back with the pre-paid certificate. After a couple of days you will get your finished product in the mail. For more information about shipping and processing fees click HERE.  This will be our family's keepsake that we can pass on.

Children's Place Preview Holiday 2012

I was invited to the Momtrends Children's Place event preview.  I got a chance to see the latest fall and holiday fashions for this season.


For the big kids to the small ones


When you step off the elevator you are taken into a room that looks like a magazine cover. The room has an array of colorful trees and the cutest children models. The clothes are fabulous and rich in color. The accessories are adorable. Each piece of clothing is easily mixed and match to make a new outfit. 


Cutest Children Models



I was able to mingle with some other awesome bloggers at the event. I went gaga for the baby clothes. My little girl is going to look like a princess thanks to the Children's Place this holiday season.
