Note On the Counter

August Note

Wow- summer is almost over, can you believe it? 

This year I will have a senior in high school, another to 8th grade and my baby in 1st grade.  I can't believe it. I have most of the school supplies bought, I just need to purchase the first day of school outfits for all the kids. Are you done?

I am having the hardest time finding pants that fit my oldest. He is tall and skinny. My middle son is starting to lean the same way. No more hand- me- downs for him because as it looks not, my oldest is now taking care of his items and they last longer. I can't tell you how I wish he would have heard my pleas sooner- but what can you do?

How many kids do you have to shop for? 

If you don't have kids, do you donate school supplies to teachers or kids in need?

Can you use Dial Rewards?


I joined a program called Dial Rewards. This rewards site is the easiest point accumulation program I have ever used.  It is a brand new program that allows you to enter codes for points. You use the points to enter into instant win games or sweepstakes they are offer on your rewards page. The more you participate in the activities the more points you earn.

Do you want to make the cool collages too?

FotoJet Card and Collage Maker Review

I had so much fun on this web site, how could I not tell you about it.

FOTOJET has been a free collage making website that  I have been playing around with for a few weeks. All the uploads of photos I dug up, just to make neat, clean collages has been a blast to play around with on my down time.  You don't have to sign up, you don't have to give them all kinds of information. Its a website for you to be creative. 

FotoJet has two main options you to pick from, either the cards categories or the collages categories. There are over 190 temples to pick from with several occasions. Are you unsure on how to make a collage? Don’t worry, this site has a full tutorial to show you how you can make your own professional collage.

I started with this one from the modern collage section. Its simple with some cool framed designs to insert my photos.  To my enjoyment it has a option for you to get your photos from your computer OR your facebook page. That made it super easy to get access to the photos of my friends and family. 

This only took me about ten minutes to make. You are able to customize the words and fonts on the side. You also have options to use the fonts they offer you or the ones you already have on your computer.   You will be able to save them right to your computer.   You can even post them right to Facebook. They come out just as you made them, clear, adjusted and to the size you specified. 

Pretty neat right? 

Here is another one from the Classic options. This one is my favorite. 

So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to FotoJet and play around. Its all free.

Note on the Counter

July Note

Wow, we had a great 4th of July this year. We hope you did too.  We did something new this year, we went to a friends house. We don't like to leave the house on holidays because we know people like to drink and drive and people are on edge so we just want to avoid it. 

We did see two car drivers get out of control on the highway but we didn't let it stop us. Yes, my stress level when up a little. We went to the party and enjoyed ourselves and we made it home to have our fireworks at a decent time. 


I have decided to try the link up posts again.  I am thinking next month I will do a-little something different. I will have challenge questions and other surprises. You know just in case you have a little writers block or need something to get your mind refreshed.  I can't wait. I hope you will keep a look out for it. If you follow me on any of my media outlets, it will be easy. 

I can't wait! 

Did you do something different this year?

Leven Rose Rosehip Oil Review

Do you know about Rosehip Oil? 

This is the first review of organic oil I have ever done. I see a lot of bloggers and random people selling oils and telling all of us how good they are and what are all the benefits of using organic oils. I wanted to try it out for myself.  I will be honest, I don’t know anything about this oil so I had to do some research.

I swim a lot and the chemicals in the pool dry out my hair. In my research I found that a some people used it on hair. I used the rosehip oil on the ends of my hair. That is where is feels the driest.  the next day the ends of my long blonde locks where so soft. I didn't want to get my hair cut any more after that day. 

We came back from the water park today and after dinner when I sat down to relax I noticed my skin was very dry. I took a drop of the Rosehip oil and rubbed in onto my arms. The oil left my skin with a nice, soft, nourished feeling. My skin felt healthy. The next day when I woke up, I wished I had put in on my legs too. (laughing)

The oil has a light nutty smell and had a yellow tint. 

What do you use it for?
