Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.comThis giveaway is now over. The winner is Denise B. Congrats!

” alt=”” width=”240″ height=”180″ align=”left” />Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves are wraps for cupcakes that transform standard cupcakes into virtually anything. Their decorative self-adhesive cupcake wrappers instantly transform cupcakes into popcorn tubs, gumball machine, sushi, and ice cream cones. Their wraps are resistant to grease and oily substances, are earth friendly, and wipe clean if things get a bit messy in the kitchen! They have over 70 designs/themes to pick from, and they can personalize and customize them for you. Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves have been featured on Rachel Ray Magazine, and they are proud winners of the Most Innovative Exhibitor Award at the 2010 July CA Gift Show in Los Angeles.

Now, how easy are these to use?  Madison and I made muffins yesterday (with cupcake sleeves on them).  It was a great snow day project.  The Roundabout easily goes on.  Madison was able to put it on the muffin that is in this picture.  She is 7.  If she can do it, anyone can.  I loved that my directions included how to make frosting so you can frost the top to look like a bun!  Even though we didn’t do that, Madison loved these!  They are soooo cute!

Since these are so easy to use and cute too, I’ve arranged for one of my lucky readers to get some of their own!  Here’s what you need to do:

Smarty Had A Party Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Emma Peel. Congrats!

Sponsored by Tomoson.comI like to make things easy for myself.  Every other year we do Christmas Eve at my house, and I hate all the dishes that it brings (especially when we are talking 11 adults and 4 kids).  Granted, we have a dishwasher, but it still stinks.  After a dinner with everybody, we end up having to run at least 2 loads in the dishwasher to get everything clean.

That is where Smarty Had A Party comes in.  First of all, who doesn’t love that name?  Smarty Had A Party is the premier online retailer of elegant disposable dinnerware, offering an attractive alternative for classy parties, weddings, holidays and elegant events, at a substantial cost-savings over rentals. Although these dishes are sturdy and elegant enough to be used for an important event, they can be conveniently disposed of, and all at reasonable price. They even offer free ground shipping on all orders over $275.00!

We recently tried these out.  At first look, they look real.  It isn’t until you sit down and use them that you realize that it is plastic.  They definitely dress up your dinner, and this is a product I’ll be using again for family holidays.  Everybody was impressed with them, and it made cleanup a breeze.

Since we liked these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get their own Smarty Had A Party prize pack!  They prize pack consists of:

10.25″ Smarty Ivory and Chocolate Dinner Plates
Reflections Long Dinner Forks
Reflections Grand Heavy Knives
Reflections Spoons
Chocolate Brown Dinner Napkins

Here’s what you need to do:

Head over to the Smarty Had  A Party site and tell me what products you like best.  Is it the silverware?  Or is it the
10.75″ Platinum Ebony Black Plates?

These will give you one additional entry (for each thing):

1. Twitter about this contest. I’ve added a Tweet button at the top of this post to make it super easy to do too! Just let me know in the comments that you did. Also, you can do this daily!

Sometimes I Feel Like A Nut . . .

And if you do too, you should definitely try out Frito-Lays new brand.  Its called True North.  They have everything from nut clusters to nut crunches to nut crisps to whole nuts.  They seriously take care of any “nut” need you may have.  Their mission statement is one of most unique ones I’ve seen in a long time.  It is “to bring inspiration to natural snacking”.  Recently, Bill (the hubby) and I tried a couple of the peanut crunches. We tried both the toasted sesame and the honey wheat.  I’ll be honest, when I opened the package of the honey wheat crunches, I just wanted to smell them all day.  They smell that yummy!  They also taste just as good too.   Some other things I like about them are that they are 100% natural, no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and no added colors.  They also are a good source of protein and fiber.  All the nuts are also grown and produced in the United States of America.  They are both kosher and vegan too!

Where can you get these?  Target, CVS, Sam’s, and Walmart carry these wonderful snacks.  If you feel like a nut and don’t want your normal plain boring peanut, give these a try!  You won’t regret it and will pick up a new healthy snack.
