Save valuable refrigerator space with a Newair Premiere Line Fridge

We are gearing up to have a fun family style Halloween at home this year, so we’ve been planning dinner, snacks, and drink options. In our house, we all like to cook, so no matter the season, refrigerator space is always in short supply. I cleaned out all the condiments and leftovers I could, but that didn’t free up much space for drinks. I recently received an invitation from Newair to try a  to try out a new appliance from them that solved this problem. They sent me a complimentary 16 bottle free-standing wine cooler fridge which will save valuable refrigerator space now and throughout the busy holiday season coming up. If you’ve every thought you couldn’t possibly squeeze one more thing into your fridge, read on for details.

Focus on Organization- New streamlined planners & tools by Erin Condren

Take me to an office supply store or let me shop online for organization tools and I am in my happy place. There is no way I can do my work as a blogger without at least one planner. Most years I have two, along with pads of paper, notebooks to write ideas down, file folders to organize my home office and good pens.  Imagine my absolute delight when I got word that I was going to receive a box full of goodies from the new Erin Condren Focused Collection! The word FOCUS spoke to me, because I had just been talking about taking something off my plate starting now, in the fourth quarter of 2020, so I could focus on organization, blog work and more with the new streamlined planners and tools by Erin Condren.

Learn how to Embroidery with Animal Embroidery Workbook & Giveaway

As much as I’ve wished away some parts of this year, I’m happy to see fall arrive. I love this time of year! October finds me winding things down outside in the garden and soon enough, I’ll be turning my attention to indoor evening activities. I can remember my Mom used to do needlepoint and embroidery almost exclusively in the fall and winter months. While she did her best to teach me to embroidery pieces as well as she did, my stiches were always rudimentary, beginner level.  I regretted not learning this craft so I could teach my daughters, so when Fox Chapel Publishing invited me to review this book, I happily agreed, so I can better my skills and help my daughters learn how to embroidery animals too!
