"Download to Donate" Help Raise $ For Children Living in Shelters

Turning Point in Macomb County, Michigan is a shelter for abused women and children. This year they have partnered with a wonderful and generous local Michigan based Mobile - App. Company, MOBIBO. From Nov.16- Nov.30, 2011 every time you download the free MOBIBO- App they are going to pay
$.25 cent to Turning Point! 
As a mom I can't imagine living in a shelter with my children during the holidays, or any other time. A home is as much a part of "your family" as a family member. Most childhood memories are attached to what home you were living in at the time of that memory.Bad things happen to good people all the time.We could never know the full extent of how bad another families situation could be. But if we can help, we should.
Many Michigan families were forced to downsize. Even more have been forced in shelters and out on the streets. Let's show them they have not been forgotten. Let's help these women and children enjoy this holiday as much as possible.

Moms! Don't Forget Yourself this Christmas

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

This Post is intended for Adults 18 Years or older.

I know as a mom when I think of Christmas and Christmas Gifts, right away I think of my "boys". For many years I only bought presents for others. Then, one Christmas i was out shopping with a girlfriend. We had just started shopping when she said, "so where are we going shopping for us?" Us, I thought. We're going shopping for the kids, right? She said yes, but you always buy something for you too, right? Uh, no I replied. She said, well now you do. And I must admit, every Christmas I make sure I manage to eek out something for me. Some Christmas's the gifts are leaner than others, but I make sure to buy something for me from me. Moms! Give it a try. Start a new tradition!

Tiny Prints Does Christmas Cards Too

 - Tiny Prints  Let's face it, the holidays are just about here. Thanksgiving is 8 days away. Time to get it in gear and order those Christmas cards. I know you're probably thinking I can buy Christmas Cards from anywhere, the drugstore even the dollar store. Yes, you can but why would you? That box of generic cards reminds me of my Aunt Lil who kept a box of All Occasion Cards in her bureau in the dining room. Whenever a holiday rolled around I can picture her going through that box picking out a nondescript card for whatever the event.

This time of the year can get very busy. I'm completing craft projects, the boys come home everyday with somewhere new for us to go or something new for us to do.

One of their favorites are mini pizza's. Requiring only 5 ingredients they are a favorite for me and the boys.
