MailPix - Photo Creations for Your Favorite Memories


I never was certain about photo gifts sites, but when I found this site where you make all sorts of creations for a very low price, it perked my interest. Mailpix started out as a way for us to preserve our memories outside of the technology that houses our photographs.

I received a set of products including magnets for the fridge, mouse pad, coffee cups and a brag book.
Here's the magnet I made for the fridge (also one of my favorite quotes) -



The magnet I made turned out great and the photo itself was clear (I took this quote off the web, so it wasn't a photo I took myself).

The mouse pads were also pretty awesome, and these were also just little joke photos I found online that I wanted to share with my family -



Next were the coffee cups. Now, the photos I chose for these coffee cups were already a little blurred and they didn't come out too well on the cup. It still made for a charming memory though and I am glad I had them.


My favorite of them all though was the brag book. The thing is my family doesn't take a lot of "regular photographs." We tend to find the odd or funny things to photograph when we do take pictures. I compiled all the weird photos we had taken and I made into a book. And I loved sharing this with my family. Here's a quick look at the photobook -



And I'm proud to announce that I will be giving away a brag book to one of my readers!

To enter, visit MailPix.com and let me know which photo item would show off your memories the best and let me know in the comments! (Remember to leave a valid email address show I can contact you if you win).

A Book for the Adventurer in All of Us



 I have gotten addicted to young adult adventurer novels and it takes me back to the days of playing pretend with my school friends and getting to be inventive and creative at all hours of the day.

When I read Jack Templar - Monster Hunter by Jeff Gunhus, it had all the elements of the ultimate adventure story. Super powers, seemingly unbeatable enemies, friends who stick with you until the end...everything you need to get taken away.

It starts out with Jack Templar's 14th birthday. He lives with his aunt after both parents passed away, and while he loves his aunt, he has always had questions about what exactly happened to his father. All those points aside, it starts out being a normal birthday. Yet, until he realizes how...different he feels. Stronger. After sneaking away to  the basement, more than a few effortless weight training sessions later, Jack knows something is strange and really, really cool.

Once at school, everything goes as normal as planned, until the lunch room and a fight breaks out. Worse, it's between Jack's two best friends and the school bully. Using his new strength, Jack sticks up for his friends and takes down the bully. This leaves everyone in shock though, because suddenly, Jack isn't who he used to be.

An hour later, Jack is being confronted by the Principal and he's sent home. With a mysterious and sinister birthday wish from the Principal, who claims she's been waiting a long time for this moment. As Jack walks away from the school, it's then he sees her change from a wicked evil woman, to a frightening creature.

Monsters are after Jack.

This is just the beginning of course and Jack find a new level of terror in the hometown he thought he knew. But with his best friends and new band of monster hunters beside him, life becomes a whole heck of a lot more interesting.

I enjoyed every word of this book. The main character also takes breaks to speak directly to us, and warning us of the book's dangers. Because once you learn about Monster's, you see them everywhere.

This well written exciting book is perfect for anyone (kids and adults) who love a fun, exciting story. I was taken away by every word and suddenly my bus ride wasn't so dull anymore.

If you would like to read more about how this brilliant adventure novel came to be, check out this link here. And most importantly, if you'd like to purchase this book, check out the link on Amazon.

Purchase this book. You will enjoy it, love it, and watch out for monster's after you finish reading it.

I'm Baaaaack - An Update


Have you guys missed me???

So, I've been "unofficially" away from blogging. While I have blogged, I haven't been able to really visit other blogs. This also means I am completely in the dark on how your lives are going, so please update me.

I lost my internet a couple of months ago and I finally have it back.

Soooo...here's what I haven't updated you guys on -

1) I've been at my new job for almost six whole months. It's been a challenge, but a growing process. And there's such a thing as growing pains right?

2) I've been writing more! Oddly, I have been doing more...money maker writing. Like...Ghostwriting. It's been a weird experience, especially because I never thought I would enjoy it before. Get ready, too, because I have a post coming up soon with one of my favorite writing sites on this subject.

3) Fantasy novel has stalled. I'm still working on my re-write of chapter 6. I am leaving all day Sunday as my "day off" to work on this, and I'm certain as I get caught up, I will have more time to work on it.

4) A new....story.....idea is in the works! I'm torn once again between two lovers (aka novel ideas). One is a bit easier on my mental state, and I may start on it once everything seems less...overwhelming.

5) I have soooo much to do. You will see a ton of posts from me in February as I play catch up. Not to mention, there is an fun FUN update coming for those of you who have enjoyed the weekly writing prompt (very hush hush right now).

Okay, I'll stop at five. That's a pretty good number.

But most importantly - how have you been???? Tell me, I want to know. Let me congratulate your successes, and comfort your downfalls. It's nice to be back, friends!

Beautiful Handmade Products to Decorate Your Home


Let's be honest, I have a terrible time finding just the right items to add to my home that give it a certain flair to it. I remember a coworker gave me a vase once, and good-NESS this was bland. Bland color, bland design. I still have it, but it sort of irks me that they would have me this choice.

I discovered Emerson Pottery recently and I just love what I see. They are handmade items, made in the USA, and based out of Virginia. You can tell by looking at their website that each item is made with love, care, and creative inspiration. They have been in business since 1977 and to be honest, this is a place that I wish I could see in person. Their website describes the stores with an old fashioned log house feel, and I imagine if I was inside it would feel just like I wanted to hunker down, cozy up with a blanket and have someone tell me a story by the fire.

Anyways, when you peruse their website, you can find just about anything there. I find myself quite fond of their ceramic pottery lamps. These lamps also come in three different colors, too.

Not to mention you can also create personalized items, like Ceramic Coffee Mugs.


Recently I received a beautiful ceramic handmade vase from Emerson Pottery, and when I first held this in my hand I could just feel the quality. It was light weight, but at the same time it was also fairly thick. It was about six inches high and three inches across at the top. It was a delicate, pretty design, and when my mom took a look at this, she commented that this was a vase that seemed like something Picasso would have wanted to draw.




This is the perfect vase for delicate flowers. For a day when you are walking in an open field and begin to collect wildflowers. When you come back hot, sticky and smelling of something like sunshine and honeysuckle. This is the vase you would chose to display your collection.

To purchase an Emerson Pottery piece is to purchase an experience. This will most definitely stand out in your home. While their pieces aren't the big shouting pieces that you may usually like to have, their quality and creative designs far outweigh their delicate size.

I am also proud to announce that I get to give one of my readers the vase that I received from Emerson Pottery!

Required:

Go to EmersonPottery.com and let me know which item you would like to purchase. Please leave a valid email address, so I may contact you if you are the winner.

Contest will end January 31st. I will be updating this post at that time to announce the winner.

UPDATE: The winning entry is # 67 - Karen Propes.  I allow 48 hours to go by before I have to announce a new winner. I did not hear from the previous winner in time, so I awarded the prize next to winning entry # 19 (thanks to Random.org) - entrant Linda Kwolek. I am having a rotten time awarding this prize! 48 hours later, I am having to re-roll for a new winner - this time it's entrant Amanda Hoffman.

Baker Days - The Perfect Gift for a Far Away Friend

I am never the type who enjoys sending friends gift cards. For some reason, that seems so impersonal to me. So, for my friends who live faraway, I end up spending way too much time finding just the right gift that is still personal, yet won't cost me an insurmountable amount in shipping.

I found this balance with Baker Days, a personalized cake company, that sends you letter box sized cakes for any occassion.

I absolutely loved it. First, they are right in the fact that these are "letterbox" cakes. They fit right inside most mailboxes. So, when you open it up, you get an adorable round tin (which I have kept; I love things like this).





Then, you open it up, and you see the most beautiful cake. This is a work of art, plus it's personalized. Plus it has a princess (obviously me; don't you see the resemblance? Just picture me blonde) (I almost felt guilty for eating it...almost).





Following this, is the cake itself.

Oh my gawd, this cake is unbelievable. I had put it in the fridge for a day so it could be cold, and once I split it three ways, my mom, older brother and I devoured this thing. The icing was ice cold from the fridge and it was a thick layer. It felt like one of those chocolate or vanilla icing dipped cookies you get at the bakery and your favorite part is the crunchy icing. The cake inside was a carrot cake and it tasted really fresh and soft, which happened to be a wonderful contrast to the icing on top.

Just add a tall glass of ice cold milk to the mix, and you will find yourself on cloud 9.

The negatives? Really, the only negative I can think of is that you will want more of this after you finish your cake. Which isn't a bad thing, actually.

By the way, this is just the beginning - take a look at some of their other cakes on their website. They have everything from holiday based cakes to cakes to celebrate passing the driver's test to humor cakes. You also custom design your cake - you get to personalize everything about the cake - from the message, to the type of cake to put it with (so many kinds to choose from - like chocolate (!!), sponge cake, even fruit cake, and more). It's only 14.99 pounds (they are a UK based company!) which converts to about $24.36 US dollars.

I have a couple of friends out of state that I can't wait to send one of these to. It doesn't break the bank and it's personalable treat for a friend. And Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so if your Valentine happens to be a few too many miles away to spend the day with, this is a perfect surprise to send their way!

So go to BakerDays.com to send your sweet lovin' someone's way.
Sorry, that sounded creepy didn't it?

Book Rant: I Hate Crappy Endings!!


**SPOILER ALERT: There is a good chance I may blurt out the ending of several books. Proceed with caution ***

Okay, I just recently finished (or almost finished), "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs.

...now's the time to go away if you don't wnat to know what happened...

*looks around*

Are they gone?

Okay...

Holy crap that ending sucked!!! I was one hundred pages away from the ending and I was absolutely restless with where this book was going - it was just too positive and things were going way too well. I did what I usually didn't do and I skipped ahead and scanned through the rest.

Alright, here is the spoiler part - there is a death at the end.

I don't like an unexpected death in a book. Especially a main character death that came out of nowhere.

I don't mind it, when I'm fully prepared for the death. In "I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb, there is a death, but it definitely isn't a surprise. It's something I expected considering where one of the characters was going in the book. In "At Risk" by Alice Hoffman, the main character was a girl with HIV/AIDs. This was another death I expected.

In a more recent book I finished, "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green, it had a death, too, but it leaned towards a surprise death, because of who ended up dying. Yet, it wasn't too much of a surprise because the majority of the characters were dealing with serious diseases.

In the book "Love Story" by Erich Segal (inspired the iconic movie), it started out saying there would be a death (but I cried at the end anyways, of course). Yet, it was brilliant and it captured the hearts of us all (because we were PREPARED for what would happen, obviously; can you imagine the protests that would have happened had we not been?).

I can go on. I can continue listing out brilliant novels with sad endings. Death endings. Death endings I was 1) prepared for 2) seemed to make sense considering the plot line and 3) ...was not a total slap in the face.

This ending was a slap in the face. This wasn't supposed to happen and I damn near threw this book across the room in protest (I did shout, though; totally shouted).

This pissed me off a lot because the book was so happy and pleasant and soothing. I've read these types of books before and I know that the book will be like this. I expect it and I don't expect it will go into deep issues and that's okay. I don't mind. But when a happy book (and kind of shallow book, to be honest) becomes suddenly heavy duty sad...what the heck???

Anyways, I had to rant. I couldn't take this sitting down (even though I am sitting as I type this...just imagine me standing with my fist shaking at the sky).

Rant with me - what book enraged you the most lately? What was the worst book ending you've ever read?

3) You have until the next Wednesday to create your post.

The Best Computer Chair You'll Ever Have

As a writer, I spend a lot of my time on my computer. While sometimes I plant myself on the couch, in front of the television (which is off most of the time, I PROMISE), a lot of the times I feel my most productive at my computer desk. This way I have distractions blocked out and I can focus.

Now, a pretty ridiculous thing happened over the summer. My computer chair broke. It broke. The back came off of it (photo below of backless chair),





The problem was that this chair didn't have great support and so I (as well as my mom and older brother) would lean far back in the chair to sort of relax in a way.

In case you didn't know, when you lean far back enough in a chair, the back snaps off.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a chair from UNEEDIT.com. UNEEDIT.com is the mecca of office (and home office) supplies (whether you work in a standard office, or you have your own home office, this is the place you want to go).

Alright, I know your first question, "How long did it take you to actually put this thing together?"
Here's the chair when I first received it.









It obviously does not arrive all put together, but it did not take me a long time to figure out where everything went (and I'm not a "read the directions" kind of gal). The trickiest part was putting on the wheels (and that just entailed me pushed hard to get the wheel clicked into its place).

And then the sitting action.

Let me tell you, this is one of the best computer chair's I've had. I know it's still new and it hasn't had the chance to pass the test of long term use, but let me go over the benefits -

1) It encourages you to sit up straight.

The chair is created in a way that you want to sit up straight while you are sitting in it (no Schroeder's hunch for me!). I appreciate this because I spend a long time in front of the computer and I hate the ache I get in my back when I don't have the right posture.

2) Very, very comfortable.

This chair is comfortable. It has
soft padding all around and I love the feeling it gives me when I sit (no fanny ache too badly either).

3) Its a big chair.

Another important factor - and this is vain, I'll tell you now - I hate having to worry about the size of a chair in comparison to me (see Goldilock’s Syndrome). This is a nicely sized chair that I feel comfortable in.

4) The deep discount!

The benefit of purchasing this on UNEEDIT.com is the deep discount you receive by purchasing it on their site. The value of this chair is $459.00, but UNeedIt.com has it on sale for $139.68. That more than 50 percent off!

Downsides?

If you despise, hate even, the thought of having to put anything together when it comes in the mail (like you literally want it to wheel out of the box), this may not be the best computer chair for you. But if you don't mind some light putting-together-ness, than you will do just fine.

And the most wonderful thing about this is, I have the opportunity to give away one of these chairs!

Required Entry:

Go to UNEEDIT.com and tell me what item you would need the most for your office (home office, or otherwise). Please provide a valid email address in your comment so I know how to reach you if you win!

Optional Entries:

+1 Entry - like UNeedIt.com on Facebook
+1 Entry - Like my blog on Facebook
+1 Entry - Follow UNeedIt on Twitter
+1 Entry - Follow @BeingTheWriter on twitter
+1 Entry - Follow my blog GFC

For each entry you complete, add a comment letting me know. Please do not leave just one comment saying you have done all of the above, otherwise you will just receive credit for one entry.

The contest ends on 1/19/2013. I will update this post and announce the winner on that end date.

UPDATE: Sorry for my delay! I have chosen the winner via Random.org. It randomly selected entrant # 6!  Kim Burnett - I will send you an email for you to claim your prize!

Julibox - Monthly Cocktail Subscription - A Review

So, we all miss getting stuff in the mail and I don't know about you, but with the blog craze going on, I just don't see the purpose in subscribing to a lot of magazines. But a new growing trend of subscription boxes has my mailbox (and me) smiling again.

Last week I had the opportunity to try out Julibox, a monthly cocktail subscription where you receive two recipes and the ingredients for two drinks per cocktail.

I love this subscription service (and I've already subscribed for another month!).

The Packaging:




The packaging reminded me of why I love getting things in the mail. Each item is individually wrapped in their custom tissue paper and sectioned off so none of the ingredients are confused together.




They are layered top and bottom with what I like to call "packaging hay" so nothing is damaged in shipping (which I promptly kept since I am a gift wrap hoarder and these would be perfect for homemade gift baskets).




Next, your welcome card that comes with the box that introduces you to the delivery box and gives you the recipes you will be trying this month. Best of all, they give you the complete recipe, so if you enjoy it, you can make it yourself again.

The Drinks

The drinks we tried were called the Polish Mule and the Daily Rose.


First, The Polish Mule. I was pleasantly surprised and so was my mom. What I like the most about the Julibox is that it allows me to try drinks I never would have tried before. I never would have tried a recipe with Ginger beer, but this drink made me appreciate it. It isn't too sweet and my mom and I were pleasantly surprised about how much of a punch it had -





My older brother tried the Daily Rose.



He mentioned it was sweet drink and the addition of grapefruit made it for an interesting blend.





We for sure will be trying these recipes again. Again, this is what I love the most about this subscription - new flavor combinations to try in your evening beverage.

The Price

Well, it's a little expensive ($40/month for the "Try Me" monthly subscription, $38/month for 3 month subscription, and $36/month for 6 - 9 month subscription). But really, quality does not come cheap and the Julibox team obviously puts a lot of time and care into each box. I recommend you try at least one box (or give one as a gift). You will be pleasantly surprised and you will more than likely want to try this again.  The awesome money saver fit though? Shipping is FREE.

Who Should Buy It

This is perfect for an adventurous drinker who needs something new. I would describe myself that way and I tend to avoid trying unfamiliar recipes (I usually end up making Cherry Vodka Sours or an Old Fashioned all the time). So this subscription box is perfect for me.

If you aren't much of a drinker, an just enjoy an occasional glass of wine on Friday nights, you may not appreciate the idea of spending the money for this subscription. But if you are more like me, I can tell you this is worth a try.

Would I buy this again?

You bet! In fact, I already paid for a subscription box in January.

How to buy

Just go online to their website, create an account, and purchase your subscription here.
