My Publisher - Another FREE photo book!

Every month I take a picture of Little Ditty.
I use the same onesie.
And the same quilt.

I did the same thing with JoJo.
But what am I planning on doing with the pictures at the end of her first precious year?

Put them in a photo book, of course!

I'm planning on using MyPublisher because it is my absolute FAVORITE company to use.
You can see a review I did here.

But in a nutshell, the software is easy to use.
Books can hold up to 100 pages.
They have a NEW lay-flat page option that I can't wait to try!
AND they give amazing coupons and discounts FREQUENTLY to their customers.

In fact, today I have an offer for anyone wanting to try MyPublisher out.

I've bought the 5x7 pocketbook photobook before for $19.99.
It's a great size and the quality is amazing.
With this Gift Card, that book is FREE!

Can't beat that, right?

{Grandparent's Day is coming up on September 11th, and I don't know a Grandma or Grandpa who wouldn't LOVE a photo book FILLED with pictures of their munchkins!}

Try it.
You won't be sad.

Last Day to Vote!

I can't believe it's almost over.
Pinterest Challenge Round #2 has been so much fun.
Your projects were amazing.
The winner will be announced tomorrow morning,
so you still have time to go vote!

Today, though, I have a few more sponsors to show you.
The first being a new company that will be seeing some business from me soon!

They make personalized stamps for a REALLY great price.

She mentions that she can use any logo for your business or you can choose from any of her premade ones!
I'm pretty sure I can make some room in the business budget to get one of these for Better Life Bags!
OR, maybe a fun "Created by Rebecca" to stamp on those handmade Christmas gifts I hope to accomplish.
Or even just a stamp instead of annoying stickers for my return address labels this holiday.

so many options.

This next shop made my jaw drop.
I can't believe how many BEAUTIFUL pieces are gathered together in one place!

Just look at some of her items:

I'm pretty sure that bracelet will be on a Christmas list for me this year.
She also has rings, earrings, handstamped necklaces, and more.

You won't want to miss checking her out.


Holy Craft is a SUPER fun shop that has a personal connection to Better Life Bags!
She is one of YOU - a faithful reader of BLB!
I just love having crafty friends!

Her shop has the most adorable name:

And her products are equally as adorable.
She donated this necklace to the winner of the Recipes category.

But after visiting her site,
I fell in LOVE with these hair clips for Little Ditty.

And this necklace for ME!

Her prices are awesome, too.
Plus, how can I not LOVE a fellow Michigander?!  

Go check out her shop.
AND her Facebook page.

And finally, Fast Easy Bread donated a homemade pizza kit!

I LOOOOOOVVVVE homemade pizza.
Unfortunately, as homemade as I get is the .99 packages of pizza crust from Kroger.

Maybe I need this pizza kit!

It's enough to make 44 delicious homemade pizzas.
It's DEFINITELY a better price than my .99 packages, even!!

They also sell adorable aprons.

And have a fun blog with recipes like this stuffed crust pizza.

Looks yummy!
Plus anything with the name "fast" and "easy" has my attention right away!
I'm really going to have to convince the hubby that we need this.
Who doesn't LOVE homemade bread!

Here's her website.

Have fun browsing - but don't get too hungry!

And remember to take some time vote for the Great Pinterest Challenge winner!

These sponsors have generously donated prizes to the category winners.

You never know what you might find.

First up...

In her shop, you'll find cute jewelry AND a fun vinyl sticker for your Kitchenaid mixer.

 Great idea!
I'm always having to look up conversions.

She also has a great blog with lots of tutorials like this covered car seat.

{I made a new car seat cover for Ditty, but was not talented or patient enough to make a tutorial.  Way to go Lil Luna!}

She also has tons of free printables!
Thanks Lil Luna!

Another amazing sponsor is Amie from Kitty Cats and Airplanes.
She did a guest post for me back when Ditty was born.

She has a really fun link up party called "3...2...1... craft" and this rounds project had to do with felt!

This girl is amazing at guest posting and having guest posters.
If you have a blog - be sure to ask Amie to blog swap with you!
She's super flattering in her posts.
I smiled the entire time she was gushing about me back in November 2010.
And then she gushed again when she bought a Clara Lynn Market Bag from me.
This girl is great!

Check out her blog.
And her facebook page.

Can you handle seeing TWO more amazing sponsors?

Hand Painted Boxes is a new love of mine.
I "liked" her on Facebook and have been enjoying looking at everything she posts in the News Feed.

Like these:

And these postcards:

Aren't they adorable?!
Go check her out.

remember seeing this post from Heidi?

Well, she used DecoArt paints to cover the inside of those bottles.
They are a sponsor of the Pinterest Challenge, too!
How cool is that?!

They have an awesome website with a cool PROJECT LIBRARY.
I'm going to have to do the project that Heidi did above.
So cool.
