There is a 12 point swag code on the blog, expires in 10 minutes.  Due to how often I find swag codes (2-3 times a day) I only post them on my Facebook page, because it’s just quicker, and people see it instantly.  On my blog, people see it in after its already expired in their email alerts or when they check my page at the end of the day.

So if you want to get all the Swag alerts and deals that are HOT and will be gone quickly, you’ll want to be a Facebook fan here.

Plus you will automatically get entered into my Facebook Fans Only daily giveaways, which I only talk about on my Facebook page.

I had another product planned to giveaway today.  A biggie. But I hated it once I reviewed it.  I mean really, really hated it.  So I had to email the company and let them know that I couldn’t host a giveaway because their product simply didn’t do what they said it would do. Before I review a product, I let all the companies I do reviews for know that if I don’t like the product, I will email them with constructive criticism and cancel the giveaway.

But this is the first time it has ever happened.  So far, I have enjoyed all the products I’ve reviewed.   Maybe I will have to be more careful now with the companies I choose to work with.  I am not sure if this has ever happened to another blogger.  I searched the internet, but found nothing.  At first I didn’t know what to do.  The lady I had been corresponding with from the company was quite pleasant and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings; she had told me previously that she was anxious to read my review.  I know business is business and she probably didn’t care, in fact maybe she was grateful I wouldn’t post a negative review, but I am always worried about what other people are feeling.  And it may sound silly to you, but I was worried they would make me ship the product back to them and I didn’t want to pay shipping and make a trip to the post office.  But luckily they never mentioned returning it, so that saved me some headache.

Now you know there are some awkward, not-so-glamorous tasks associated with being a product reviewer.  Which, by the way, was never something I intended to be when I started my blog.  I just fell into it when companies started contacted me. I have come to enjoy trying new products and writing about them, then hosting giveaways.  I get so excited when the winners email me back and I can tell by their words (and multiple “thanks!!!!”) that they are truly excited to have won.

Anyways, I wish there were more giveaways today for my Wednesday giveaways, but things don’t always work out perfectly do they?

Flower Duet Training DVD:

Ya know that part in The Matrix where Neo plugs in and learns Kung Fu?  Well this took a little longer, but I feel like I just became a pro at flower arranging after watching this 30 minute DVD!  Here is my before picture:

I got this kinda sad looking bunch of flowers from Smiths.
After watching the video and following the instructions, I created this:

Pretty right?  I have absolutely NO flower skill!  I know it’s not the most perfect looking thing, but for me..it’s impressive 🙂
I recommend this video for people like me with no skills.
In 30 minutes I learned how to pick flowers, clean and condition them, and arrange.  There is also a section on bridal bouquets, which I skipped because I don’t care about that. But I’m sure it was good! 🙂

Bummas Cloth Wipes:

So what exactly are Bummas?

They’re small, soft, eco-friendly baby-sized cloths made especially for drying baby bottoms, as well as blocking those surprise squirts! You can virtually eliminate irritating diaper rash without the use of powders, talcs and ointments by simply drying your baby’s bum with a Bumma!

I also tried out Bummas.  They are very soft and absorbent.  I only wish I got them sooner when my newborn son was more of a fire hose (you know what I mean).  He’s 7 month’s now, starting on food, so of course diaper rash becomes an issue.  I really like the Bummas because it eliminates the need for powder or blowing the bum dry.   You can also use them as wipes by just adding some water and then you just throw them in the wash.  (I didn’t try this with messy diapers)  My only complaint is that I didn’t have enough of them.  Maybe I should do my laundry more often.  No…..that’s not the answer. 🙂

Giveaway: 1 winner will get the Flower Duet DVD (view a small clip here) and 1 winner will get 10 Bummas Cloth Wipes (the Wild Ones set here)

Read  and Share: The Story of Easter , Gwen Ellis (Hardcover Book)

Well I seem to be stocking up on animated Christain DVD’s; this was my 4th one in a month! These are one of my favorite things to review because I like the idea of more being created; I like the idea of my daughter learning about Jesus instead of learning “Don’t hit your friends” because they wonder: why?  And without teaching them about Jesus they can get so lost in this world.

Off my soap box! Anyways, the book “The Story of Easter” retold the Bible’s stories of Christ clear from his betrayors to his resurrection, in very simple language a child could understand and with great pictures.  The DVD was very well done and my daughter watched it twice in a row. The price is incredible – $7.85 for the hardcover book + DVD! A great example of how Christian Children’s DVD’s don’t have to be boring!

Another example I recently reviewed was Living Scriptures and I loved them too.  I also recently reviewed “What’s in the Bible” and thought it was more informational, but much less likely that a child would enjoy watching it.

What’s your favorite Christian DVD for children?  Any suggestions for future giveaways?

Blog review disclosure: I was given the opportunity to review this book & CD courtesy of BookSneeze.com
