Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Check out these awesome Valentine's Day Cards from Dandee Designs. Aren't these sooo cute?!

And of course you can choose between Team Jacob or Team Edward. I must say that I was all for Edward until I saw New Moon and then I totally changed over to Jacob. I am sorry but how can you resist him with his shirt off and the new haircut? :) Am I too old to be talking like that? Probably. Oh well. My husband knows I am not trying to pursue a relationship or anything. Plus if I give him this card he won't feel like he's got to worry too much about his competition. :) ha ha

Go check out Dandee Designs. She has an awesome blog! She makes some way cool jewelry and things which I LOVE but she doesn't have anything other than these adorable cards in her shop right now. :( I bought a ring and some earrings from her for my mom last year and she just luvd them! I can't wait until she makes some more cute things! She is so talented!

P.S. If you really want to have fun, host a Twilight Party. Check this out over at Fistful of Coupons. (this is WAY awesome and I just might have to have one of these parties sometime in the near future.)

Santa Video Message

This is so awesome! It's a personalized video message from Santa to your child and it's free! I just did one for each of my children it's just adorable! The boys are gonna freak when they see it. All you do is just add some info about your child like: what toy he/she wants, where they live, his/her name, color of eyes/hair, and a few other things. You download a picture too which goes into the "nice" book. He'll even say your child's name if it is a common one. They didn't say my son Trysten's name because it is spelled differently, but they did say my son Gavin's name. Anyway, go HERE to try it out! It doesn't take long and they don't take any of your personal info or anything. They do ask for your name and email at the end but I just put my first name in and it worked. If you want to see what it's like first for HERE to check out my oldest son's video.

Christmas Countdown Idea

I found this way cute idea to countdown to Christmas with a muffin tin! My kids would love this! Put some yummy candies behind each number or a fun activity to do each day. SOoo cute and easy. :) You can find two different looks and instructions here and here. These would make fun gifts too. The muffin tins are less than $5 at Walmart and I am sure you have some cute scrapbooking paper laying around right?
