Enchanted Potions Giveaway!!

I recently started selling Enchanted Potions products, and I will be doing an order this week, so I can offer gift baskets and gift ideas on Ebay, here, and Facebook.
I am super happy with their products! I have used the lip balms, lotions, shower gel, and shampoo. My 4 year old absolutely loves the bubble gum scented detangling spray I specially ordered! Deegan, and even the other 2 kids, lol, love the fun smelling bath confetti! Plus, they come in adorable little shapes, we have fish and ducks. The little envelopes are so cute, and they last a few baths, depending on how many your kids beg and scream for! Mine all ask for more since they dissolve in the bath water, lol.
This company is very unique, and I am thrilled to be a direct seller for them! I can't wait to start making gift baskets, and posting the pictures and scents.
The best part of this company, is that you can customize your orders, with your choice of scents! They offer a great list, anything from, toasted marshmallow, to bubble gum to candy corn, to sweet pea! Almost every product they offer, is able to be customized with your choice of very good smelling scents!
I love the lip balm, I have a heavy addiction to lip glosses and lip balms and even if it is not pink, (my usual favorite choice), I don't leave the house without it! It works great against chapped lips, and I am happy I ordered 2, since Genevive also loves it, and lip glosses and lip balms have a tendency to get lost around here lol!
I also am falling in love with the chocolate scented shower gel! I pair that up with my toasted marshmellow body lotion, yum!
Anyway, I am offering a free gift with any orders over $50 right now, and 2 free gifts with any order over $75!! You can order through me,, or you can order direct from the website. If you order from the website directly, please remember to put my name, Brandy Oliver, as the sales rep! I will be able to see who ordered and you can email me directly to let me know that you did this, that way, I can ask for your address, and send your free Enchanted Potions products!
Now, let me tell you about the fantastic Enchanted Potions Giveaway!!!
The only requirements for this giveaway are to subscribe to my RSS feed! You have 2 opportunities to enter this way!
The first being this blog,, and the second will be to subscribe to my RSS feed at!
It's very simple! I will then, go through the emails that are subscribed, and through, pick an email, and you will win a $25 Enchanted Potions store credit!! You can order direct through me, and the $25 will be taken off of your order!!
There is one more thing that you may find a little annoying that I would like to explain.
Enchanted Potions makes all of their products, to order. There aren't any shelves or warehouses, filled with products, because, when you place your order, they start from scratch! Wow!! I know, it is a bit long, (usually a 3 week wait), to receive your order, but I guarantee it is well worth the wait! I also love the fact that they made it special, just for me, after I placed the order! Lotions and shampoos, do have a shelf life, and there are times I wonder how long things have been sitting around when I shop. I do not have to worry about that with these products!!
The giveaway will be ending on the day before Thanksgiving!! I will make the announcement on here, and all social networks, as well as email the winner! This way, you will be able to order in time for Christmas! Whether it will be for yourself, or somebody else, you will be certain to have it in time, (as long as you order very shortly after receiving the winner email!)
If you have any questions, comments, or would like to order, or if you would like to start selling Enchanted Potions products, you can email me at, or comment here!!
I would also always be interested in doing giveaways with sponsors, to help promote your products and blogs or business! AND always feel free to contact me in case you are in need of a sponsor for a giveaway as well! I sell Enchanted Potions, and Gold Canyon Candles, and RADA. RADA is an ongoing fundraiser I do for RSD, a medical condition I suffer from. If any of these would help your site, and you would like to offer any of my products, please let me know! I am hoping to have a much more established networking type "business", in the near future when I have bigger numbers, and sponsoring giveaways will always be something I do!

Connie Won the My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software Giveaway!!

First, let me explain the creation above, lol.
My oldest daughter, Bethany, has this drummer boyfriend, Andrew, who is pictured above. Well, Genevive, my 4 year old, decided it would be much fun to make Andrew look like this with our My Memories Software. (We love this stuff!!) So, this is why there are pretty flowers and colors all around this boyfriend of Genevive's big sister.
Anyway, we had 22 entries for this giveaway, and it was posted numerous times, however, only 1 person followed the instructions, and posted at the right spot and was honest in completing all of the tasks involved in the giveaway. Thank goodness we had at least 1, lol.
From now on, in all of our giveaways, you have no choice but to follow the rules and guidelines posted. I can't even count your entry, especially if you did not even visit the sponsors page, and you unfollowed my blog or blogs, a day after posting on Facebook or Twitter, that you followed the rules and entered the giveaway!
So, thank you Connie!! I appreciate your comment, and the following all of the guidelines!! This means a lot to me, and I am blessed to have you as a blog friend!!
Please email me at, with your info, so that I can forward this info to our giveaway sponsor, My Memories!
I can also give you the info, if you don't already have it, about the freebies they offer each week!! They have awesome freebie downloads, which are great editions to the software set that Connie just won!
I have had nothing but a fun time, and a great experience, with My Memories, Liz, is the sweetest, and I am very grateful that she emailed me a few months back with so many great opportunities!
We will be working a lot with My Memories, and I will be posting the freebies they offer, coupon code links for the Scrapbook software, and creations that my kids and I make with the download they generously gave to us to review!
I hope you all take advantage of this great companies offers, and the fun times you can have with your children, making such fun creations! I personally recommend this software, and we use this quite a bit. Whether it's just for fun, like the picture above, or we are making cards or photo albums.
I haven't figured it all out yet, but with this software kit, you can also make your blog templates, logos, business cards, the list is literally endless, and I am scheduling some extra time in November, to work on a whole series of My Memories creations and posts for you to interact with, and share!

CK Bakery Shop

I had the pleasure of staying up late one night a few weeks ago, and luckily being on Facebook to update my page, when I noticed a real cool page, CK Bakery Shop.
You have got to check this business out! WOW!
This business, started out by the owner, baking cakes for her husband and son who were fighting overseas in the war, and sending a little bit of sadly missed home, right to them. Cakes baked in mason jars, and shipped right in a box through the USPS!
This idea and business absolutely fascinated me, and I was overwhelmed with joy, knowing that there are so many amazing people out there in the world.
What a brilliant idea I thought, and I noticed she was offering deals and specials, and I knew i had to try these cakes out right away!!
You have to see the amazing list of flavors and varieties she has available! I just think this is the sweetest idea!
CK Bakery Shop's cakes in a jar, would be an excellent gift for college students, soldiers, elderly friends or family, disabled family members, and friends, anybody who could use a good pick me up and a reminder that someone is thinking about them!
CK Bakery Shop runs a very active and fun Facebook page, head on over and tell them Busymommylist sent you!!
When you get there, you can check her list of flavors, and prices, and the prices are very reasonable, not to mention she runs extra awesome deals and promotions!
She offers a Cake of the Month Club, and minicake samplers, (which is what I received to share with my kids;p)
We received, Chocolate "Cav" Cake, Red Velvet, Chocolate Brownie, Double Chocolate, Blue Star Banner Blueberry, and Stars and Stripes. My favorite was the Chocolate "Cav" Cake, lol. ( chocolate with peanut butter, yum!!)
All of the cakes were just like homemade, and were adorable in the little mini mason jars!
the package we received, was a $15 mini cake sampler, which includes 6 flavors of your choice, and includes shipping costs!!!
Please check out CK Bakery Shop's Facebook page, and place an order asap!!

NMEDA Dealers

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


You can check here for a dealer near you to help you find the best vehicle, van or modification for you or your loved ones!

They offer "in person" personalized evaluations, to fit you in the best quality vehicle, whether new or used! You can even opt to have your own van or vehicle modified!

Sometimes, in an elderly person, or a disabled persons life, having a vehicle of their own would be a great help, and offer independence that didn't seem available before.

NMEDA is a non profit organization, and they do not sell anything! Who better to serve you then this? They are looking out for you, and they will help you choose the best quality dealer or QAP dealer close to you!

I personally would not settle for any internet or mail order companies for such an important part of disabled and elderly care as this.  I am happy that this service exists, and seems to have a very extentsive network of dealers and QAP dealers around!

QAP is a quality assurance program, they are the only nationally recognized accreditation for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. QAP is based on the principle, that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to qualify.

Did you check your zip code? Are you or a loved one in need of a service such as this?

I know that we all know or will know, or will be, in need of a service and support such as this, and what an amazing group NMEDA is!

Keep them in mind for anybody you may know in need of assistance, or for the future! I am happy with my research on this non profit organization, and think a lot of us would benefit from a service such as this!

MAM Party!!

We had a very fun time with our mom group and our MAM party, the last 2 weeks.
MAM sent a ginormous box of free products, coupons, brochures, and real cool prizes for our games!
I personally have heard of MAM, and I have seen their products online and in Parenting Magazine, but I have never come across them in a store. (We live in a very rural area, and we aren't near lots of big stores) Although we do get out in the "big city" sometimes, lol, I am a little limited to where we go shopping.
I am very impressed with the bottles and the cool designs and the shape!
My little guy, Deegan, was quite impressed with the blue toothbrushes the most.
He is 1 now, and amazingly enough, he loves brushing his teeth! ( I wish I could say that about my 8 year old son, lol). These products are superior quality, and I am very pleased with all the teething rings, which by the way, have the coolest and smartest design I have ever seen on a teething ring yet!
How cool is that, to have the teething ring actually have parts to fit the whole way in the back for those sore parts?
We had our first party on October 1st, and I actually forget my ancient digital camera. I only realized this on the way to our party, and luckily, the daycare owner who offers her daycare for our meetings, had a camera to take pictures for our posts!
We had a mix of pregnant moms, pregnant first time moms, and babies and a few toddlers.
The snacks went over quite well, especially with the little ones!
We had cheese and crackers, a fruit tray with dip, (yum!!), goldfish crackers, tea and lemonade and a few different kinds of mini cupcakes!

It was such a nice time, and I love being able to help people and have such cool treats and gifts to give away to friends!
We have so many moms and even not moms, lol, interested in our group, and hoping to attend our November 5th meeting. We already have a couple meetings per month, due to locations of some of our members. I live in the middle, so I have some over at my place once per month, and I travel about 20 miles to another town, to have the other meetings!
We were all very thankful and excited for this MAM event, and I am anxious for our next meetings we have coming up!!
We also still have a few MAM products left, and I think we will have those for new members, who are expecting or have little ones.
We also have a project we are doing with our "Not Just 4 Moms" group, with donations. (a member came up with this real cool name at our MAM party!!) So, I believe we will be figuring out exactly which church or school will be receiving our donations, and then we can decide if we should donate the leftover pacifiers, and teething rings! That may be a very nice gift for someone else!
We have a "Reviews" tab on our groups brand new site, and MAM is the first review on our site!!
I will have another post on my other blog, momscrazyday, with some real cute pictures of Deegan, using his new favorite toothbrush. I have to run for some batteries for the camera, and upload the pictures!
We had a very nice time, everybody in our group seemed to really be happy with the products they received, and we all seemed to think MAM products are very high quality, and have awesome designs and the biter brush I believe was the biggest hit!
I am shocked that I have never seen this product before! After 4 kids, and now unfortunately we are done, (sometimes I wish we weren't;p), but after all of that, and now I find a biter brush!!
I think I know what our next giveaway should be..... I think a MAM gift basket with a biter brush and the awesome glow in the dark pacifiers, will be a huge success!!
At least I also know what to purchase for baby shower gifts in the future. I am more then pleased with MAM, and I am very grateful for the nice box they sent for our party, filled to the top, with tons of cute gifts and products for everybody! Outstanding job MAM!! Thank you!
Child's Play Party, is an amazing company! I have so much fun with the opportunities they provide for these parties! I recommend them to anybody who has a mom group, blog, website, or even a product they would like to get out and advertised.
Not just 4 Moms, and me and Deegan, give MAM, and Child's Play Party, 5 stars!!

My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software Review and Giveaway! Part 2

The kids and I are very proud of our gardens this year! We planted a lot of things, flowers, fruits, veggies, and herbs.
We just grabbed a bunch of mismatched seeds and planted them, and waited to see what was coming. Most of our garden was a surprise, lol, we had no clue what to expect. With the exception of the cherry tomatoes, spring onions, pumpkins (that never came, but still took over most of the fruit and veggie garden!), cucumbers, and all kinds of peppers, we were having a fun time checking our garden each morning to see what was coming next!
We did plant lots of onions, and we did not see any, as the cucumbers, watermelon, and the fabulous pumpkins, took over and stole the sun away from the entire middle of our garden. This was a shame, because I cook a lot, and I use lots of onions! But we learned some things about these plants, and we also have to make our garden bigger for next year.
These flowers, especially the orange ones, are also surprises. If anybody knows what any of these gorgeous flowers are, please comment! I really need to know what to purchase for next year, and I would love to read up on them so I know exactly how to take care of them!
Sunflowers are my very favorites, I am saving pictures of those for their own, special, My Memories creation. We had a lot of luck with those this year, thank goodness! Every time I see a sunflower, it brightens my day! Ever since I was a little girl.
I really am having a super fun time with this software. i am actually amazed with how quick I can create pages, and I will be attempting business cards next. I was also thinking about making a logo, or a button for a blog I have, and installing that as well. I know for sure, the kids and I will be making plenty of Christmas cards with this software in the coming months!

My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software Review and Giveaway!

This software I was so generously given an opportunity to review, is so much fun to create things with!
I have never been much of a scrapbooker, but I am addicted to this software and I found that it is not just for scrapbooking!
I have since signed up for the newsletter, from, and they have very cool deals and specials, included some free downloads.
I was having a hard time getting this download and starting this new hobby, due to printer issues, and ink problems, and I am finally able to print all of our creations. ( The kids are super happy about this!).
I have only recently started blogging, and learning all I can about computers, blogging, and everything in between. I have to say, it has been an adventure! I pick new goals each week, and each day, and it is quite fulfilling when I can cross something off my list.
For being fairly new and trying to teach myself so many things, this My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software, was a blessing! It was so simple to install, and start the whole process, not to mention how simple it is to start creating your pages, pictures, cards, practically anything you want! (I just recently started learning how to mess with pictures, edit, cropping, etc, with our caveman years digital camera, lol), so i was shocked at how easy this was to place the pictures right  where I want them.
The variety of layouts, and templates, will keep you occupied and allow for many, many, scrapbooks pages or virtually anything you can think of! I have come across some very adorable blog templates and buttons, made from this software, so that is something I am attempting next! I have been reading blogs that I have found through Mymemories on Facebook, and they are some of the prettiest, and coolest designs I have seen!
This is something every mom, grandma, dad, blogger, crafter, business, anybody, should have! There is so much you can do with this, and the price is just right. $39.97 for the complete My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software, is a nice price! They also offer backup, and updated versions as well, for a very low price. I was given a coupon code you can use, to receive $10 off the final price of your order!! This can be placed directly in the coupon code box at checkout! You can click here to purchase the software and when you get to the checkout process, (You should check out the other kits they offer! There is a "free kits" tab at the top of the page!!), you can enter this coupon code, STMMMS10452, for $10 off of your order! (This code is only for the My Memories Suite v2, but this software will start you out on tons and tons of options for creating so many things!
While you are grabbing this software, you have to check out all of their deals! They have freebies, like I mentioned before, and dollar deals, digital scrapbooking kits, very gorgeous album templates, and a Design Club!
The Design Club is $5.99 per month and you can cancel at any time, (although I doubt you will want too) because they will give you 5 exclusive new kits, each month! You also get access to the new designs, a month before everybody else! You also will receive specials, promos, extra super deals for Design Club members, AND the best part, (ok, one of the best parts, because the 5 exclusive new kits each month is very cool!), is you will receive a 5% discount for every 6 consecutive months that you stay in the Design Club! (up to 20%!!). That discount applies to anything in their store, and is stackable with other deals and promotional discounts. I am very impressed with that deal, compared to other "clubs', i have never come across such awesome benefits!
Back to my review of this real amazing download! I am just amazed at the amount of designs, colors, shapes, templates, textures, shadows, all kinds of extras in this software download, that is very simple to put together, and looks wonderful! The picture at the top of this post, is the very first page I created with My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software. I am so happy and shocked that I was able to do this, and I am spending the rest of our rainy day, creating more pages!
On top of all of the real cool and cute flowers, and ribbons, and shapes, the parts I am in love with are the textures! The shadowing tool is very neat too! I just think this is super cool! I love how it adds dimension to the pages! You have to look at all of the embellishments there is! I am just so thrilled to have this, and i keep coming up with new ideas for gifts and pages.
There are many options to share your creations, you can print your own creations, or have them professionally made into a book, (or books). you can order as many of these hard bound books as you would like. An excellent idea for relations for the holidays!
You can also choose to have a DVD made, or view on your iPod.
There is also a way to make your scrapbook interactive, and you can send to long distance friends and family. They can play video, and you can embed files, and share links. You can make calendars, cards, trading cards for your children's sports teams, make posters, and videos to share with family!
This is the perfect gift also, for your favorite pro scrapbooker! They will have a blast with this program, I have read lots of reviews about this program, and it seems that there are several avid scrapbookers, who have been using this software, and only this software. (You do not have to use the templates that are provided, you can make one from scratch!)
You have to check out their website, and see for yourself, all of the designs, templates, kits and options you will have with! Think of all of the money saved making your own greeting cards and calendars!!
Don't forget, if you go here and enter the coupon code, you will receive $10 off! (making this software, the final price of $29.97!) The holidays are coming up and this would also be a great gift for family and friends! Whether you are making the creations as gifts or purchasing the software for them, it is the perfect, and a very thoughtful gift.
I will be making another post today, as Mymemories, is sponsoring a giveaway for my readers! YAY!!
The giveaway winner will receive a promo code, to install the My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software for FREE!
Check my blogs, and Facebook in the next 24 hours, for this giveaway to be officially announced!
