Janome Sewing Machine Giveaway

janome-sewing machine

Make any child happy this Christmas with a Janome sewing machine.  This compact machine includes essential features for tackling many types of sewing projects, from simple tasks and mending to scrapbooking and paper crafting. At just 5 lbs, it is perfectly portable and a great choice for apartment and dorm living, taking to classes or sewing with friends.  You can choose from several colors and they even have a Hello Kitty one.

I actually learned to sew when I was 10 years old and used to make all my clothes in high school.  When I got into college, I started making quilts and was totally hooked.  In fact, I pretty much spent all my free time sewing before I had kids.  When I started homeschooling Kaley, I knew I wanted to pass along that passion to her so I taught a kids homeschool sewing class and it was so much fun watching them learn how much fun sewing can be.  I really believe this is something every child should learn at some point !!!

Here are my 2 favorite quilts that I made:

Surprise Mom for Christmas with the New Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away

shark-rotator

Shark makes complete home cleaning more convenient than ever with the new Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away, designed to clean hard to reach places better than any vacuum ever before. With unprecedented mobility to reach under furniture, the new Powered Lift-Away offers consumers the ability to lift away the vacuum’s wand or pod so users can clean above floors and reach further under furniture.

The Powered Lift-Away mode was created with easy maneuverability in mind, to enable users to reach all the way under furniture and target dirt without any heavy lifting or moving. With new Fingertip Controls, the Shark also allows for a seamless transition between hard floors and carpet cleaning.

Designed with a HEPA filter and Shark’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, the vacuum captures and holds 99.99 percent of dust and allergens to maintain a clean and healthy home environment for allergy sufferers.

The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away includes the following features:

  • Rotator power nozzle with motorized brush that deep cleans and reaches further under furniture
  • Powerful LED headlights on the nozzle and handle to improve visibility under furniture or in dark, hard-to-see spaces
  • Fingertip Controls for easy transitions between hard floors, carpet and area rugs
  • Hard Floor Genie bare floor attachment picks up large debris and fine dust in one easy step
  • Extra-long 30 foot power cord provides maximum range for cleaning large spaces
  • Specialized tools to offer versatility in cleaning include a premium pet power brush, upholstery tool, flexible crevice tool and canister caddy

I was sent one of these to review and let me tell you, it is amazing beyond any other vacuum I have ever owned.  I used to have a Dyson for many years before it broke and I THOUGHT I had a good vacuum until I got this one.

 

shark-liftaway

I love having the ability to remove the front canister to fit under low furniture and shelves.  I actually have several pieces of furniture that I can now get under with this Shark vacuum cleaner.

shark-light

The light on the front really helps me to see the dog hair on our wood floor.  Its actually kind of scary how dirty my floor was when I thought it was clean.  I just couldn’t see the dog hair and dust until now.  GAG !

shark-canister

Also being able to remove the debris canister makes it simple to empty.  With 2 dogs and 2 cats and 2 kids, I vacuum up a LOT of hair and dirt.  Being able to empty it easily is a big plus.

Another feature I like is that you can move from hard floors to a rug with just a slide of a button on the handle.  This is perfect for me because we have tile, wood floors and several rugs.

Shark-dust

The Hard Floor Genie with terrycloth wrap-around is perfect for hard wood floors that get dusty.  In the front is sucks up debris while the cloth wipes up dust that the vacuum may have missed.  Once you have finished, you can easily remove it and toss it into the washing machine.

As you can see, this vacuum is truly AMAZING and I would highly recommend it to everyone !!!

Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats for Halloween

frankenstein-rice-krispies-treats

Today Kaley and I are making all kinds of snacks for tomorrow’s Halloween party and she really wanted to make these Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats and they turned out to be a pretty easy project.

Just make the treats like the traditional recipe calls for except you will need to add in green food coloring into the marshmallow/butter mix when you are melting them.

green-marshmallow

Press the treats into a rectangular pan/dish and allow to cool.  Cut the treats into rectangles and use food gel or melting chocolate to create the mouth and hair.  Stick mini marshmallows into its neck with toothpicks (I broke them in half) and either buy candy eyes or use white chocolate.
