These days I get a lot of emails from people wanting me to post about their site–most of the time I don’t, my time is valuable with 2 jobs 2 kids and this blog 🙂 However once in awhile something is just too cool *not* to post about–so I go ahead and post anyways 🙂 is one of these sites–this is super cool, it’s like a much more user friendly non spammy version of freecycle –just pulling up Massachusetts I found everything from couches to a really nice wooden play set and flat screen tvs–sweet! Also tons of pets listed for free so if you’re thinking about a kitten for Christmas it would be a great place to look around. Definitely worth checking out!

KB Teachers

I can’t believe that it’s “back to school” time already! I also really can’t believe that this will be the first year that the beginning of the school year really means something to me since I graduated college 6 years ago! Amber is 31/2 now and ready to start preschool! We have decided to homeschool for preschool at least. Because of this I’ll be using a *ton* of online teacher resources very soon! I’m so thankful that there are a ton of great sites, KBTeachers is one I just recently found out about! I love that in addition to paying for a membership they have great free resources like their themed math worksheets. Things like this are exactly what I’ll be using with Amber, to get her ready for school!

Pampers Gifts To Grow Point Codes

I first heard about Gifts to Grow from my lovely and wonderful friend Jaimin (who blogs on over at Crazy Love) when she posted about it on Facebook. Since my little man does best in Pampers I’ve been buying them by the bucketloads since he was born. I’ve always liked their wipes best as they as so soft and don’t make my kids, who both have eczema, break out in rashes like other wipes do. I’ve been impressed with how many points I’ve gotten even though I just started inputting them a few months ago and there are some really awesome prizes you can save up for! It totally made my morning when one of my fav bloggers My Litter posted these Point Codes! 😀 😀 😀 So I thought I’d pass them along to you as well! 🙂 There are a few that are expired, but it’s worth taking the 4 minutes to put them all in 🙂

There is a new code out for Pampers Gifts to Grow to add 10 points to your account! Just enter the code 2beginearning10 to get your free 10 points!

Robert Pierre EP *Review & Giveaway*

Robert Pierre is a highschool senior, getting ready to graduate next week. If you watch this video you’ll see that he’s like many other high school guys, he loves hanging out with his buddies and making videos of them doing crazy stuff.

Unlike many high school seniors, however, he has got an incredible voice! I was able to get 4 of his songs off of his debut album that will be released this coming summer. He has a wonderful contemporary Christian sound and I love his lyrics! My favorite songs are Identity and You Hold Me Now <--think the latter has potential to be a big hit, it's wonderful! The best news is that you can get his songs for free to preview as well! Go here to Noise Trade and if you enter your email in they will email you a zip file of the 4 songs–really cool! Be sure to “like” him on Facebook as well. I’m really looking forward to hearing more from this young artist, and wish him the best as he graduates from high school!

Planet Earth Free Download!

I asbsolute love the Planet Earth series by BBC!!! When it first came out my husband and I made sure to tune in each week so we could see the new episode. The imagery throughout the entire series was gorgeous and breath taking! I also loved how they made it so interesting and you don’t even feel like you’re watching a typical boring documentary! 
So I was super excited when BBC Earth contacted me to let me know I could download the Pole to Pole episode on iTunes for free! Even better, you can too! If you go here before 4/26 you can get your free episode!
Enjoy! 🙂

Pampers Cruisers

As a Mom you know that little is more important in your babies first years as diapers!!! A bad leaky diaper can ruin a day pretty quickly! That’s why I was excited to hear about Pamper’s new Cruiser diapers. Here’s the information on them right from the company…including how you can try them out for FREE!
Every baby is a champion in play, and to celebrate the upcoming Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Pampers® Diapers has partnered with Team USA to introduce new Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max, the brand’s new high performance diapers sure to earn gold with world-class “players” – babies.
The babies of Team USA athletes will be equipped with the new Pampers Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max as they head to Vancouver. In honor of these athletes and their families, Pampers has created specially-branded Team USA diapers with the Dry Max technology. Although these limited-edition Team USA diapers will not be for sale, parents all across the country can buy Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max for their best players in the world in March. In the meantime, parents can request a free sample three-pack of the new Cruisers diaper on starting January 29th. If this sample includes a Team USA diaper (they will be randomly inserted in select sample packs), their baby will win a year’s supply of Pampers Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max.
To bring to life the incredible passion, endurance and ability babies demonstrate daily in the sport of play, Pampers Diapers has directly teamed with two world-class athlete families who are among the first to receive the special-edition Team USA diapers: Olympic gold medal speedskater Chad Hedrick and his family, and skeleton (forward-facing luge) World Champion and Olympic Hopeful Noelle Pikus-Pace and her family. These athlete families will be sharing their Vancouver experiences from their babies’ point of view throughout the Olympic Winter Games via photos and videos on
“For many athletes, bringing home an Olympic medal is not just their dream, it’s a shared dream of their entire family,” said Jodi Allen, Vice President of North America Baby Care at Procter & Gamble including Pampers Diapers. “We are so proud to partner with these world-class athlete families, who are also parenting inspirations by training and succeeding while raising young, active children. We could not think of a more appropriate event than the Olympic Winter Games to celebrate babies as the world’s greatest players and introduce our new high-performance gear – Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max.”
Babies’ passion and dedication to play demonstrates that they are some of the best players in the world. Did you know that a cruising baby in one day can take as many steps as a marathon runner in a race, and a nine-month old baby can crawl up to 400 meters in 20 minutes? It’s this active play that continually inspires the Pampers brand, and that’s why moms and dads are encouraged to log on to beginning February 12 to join in celebrating the development of their own best players. Parents will have the ability to upload a video of their baby crawling from left to right, and randomly selected videos will be compiled into a Pampers Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max “Baby Relay” commercial which will air during closing day of the Olympic Winter Games, giving babies a chance to showcase their own playful ability in the same forum as the most elite athletes.
“Pampers is delighted to give all babies the chance to be awarded for their everyday medal-worthy performances,” Allen said. “The technology incorporated into new Pampers Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max makes them 20 percent thinner than before and our driest diaper ever, providing game-changing improvements to babies in terms of performance and comfort, permitting them to be the best players they can be!”
I will also be getting to sample these diapers and will let you know just what I think in an upcoming review!

Aveeno Baby BuzzAgent Review and Free Samples

Not to long ago I signed up to be a BuzzAgent. It’s an awesome program where you can sign up for campaigns and they will send you products and samples and coupons to give away…all you have to do is spread the Buzz 🙂
I love Aveeno Baby! Their extreme moisturizing lotion is what I use several times a day to keep Amber’s eczema from coming back. It’s wonderful! So I was so super excited to get to try out their new Essential Moisture Shampoo and Soothing Relief Diaper Rash Cream.
I love Aveeno because my pediatrician actually recommended it, and I know when I use their stuff I can be confident that it won’t make Amber’s super sensitive skin break out.
I was so impressed with the shampoo! Amber has quite a bit of hair now and it gets tangled. The shampoo has a light moisturizer in it that made it so much easier to comb through her hair, lots less ouches!!!
I did like the diaper rash cream as well, but found it rather thick and a little difficult to spread. It did a good job of clearing up her irritation though.
I still have a bundle of freebies to giveaway and would love to send one to you! They were sweet enough to send me samples of shampoo, diaper rash cream, and $1 off any product coupons! If you’d like for me to send you one just leave a comment saying which one thing you’d like and then email me your address at  it will be on a first come, first serve basis so hurry!

Because I’m Just That NICE!

So, I totally shouldn’t be telling you all about this but it’s so awesome I can’t help it! I found out over at My Litter of Six about a free photo gift and it’s really truely free, no shipping or anything!!!
I definitely took advantage of this great offer! Which is ironic, I know, because of my Artistic Albums By Nicole business. But I can’t get stuff printed out for free! I only ordered 50 as I don’t think I’ll be sending out 100 so I just used the code found on Freebies 4 Mom.
As someone who uses Photoshop and designs professionally I found their editor infuriating and limiting. I did come up with a really cute design though and free is free! My friend Katie over at A Listmaker’s Life also came up with the great idea of creating a design in your own editor and dragging and dropping it onto a plain template.
So, as I said….totally shouldn’t be telling you about this as I should be telling you to use me to design for you….but I love you all and wanted to let you know! 🙂
