Cuts and Scrapes Can Be Healed with New-Skin Products

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

If you find yourself getting hurt a lot, especially your children, they you know what is it like to constantly be wearing a bandage, right? Well there are new and improved bandages and they are nothing like the "old school" bandages either. These bandages, are in fact, in liquid form. Yeah, this is a new and improved way to cover up and heal your skin or scar faster than before. Did you know New-Skin has been around for 100 years? You might be asking yourself what took you so long to learn about this product line and heal those scratches, cuts and scars. Well, you no longer have an excuse to not use these products.

New-Skin has three new products to look at, learn about and purchase. There is the New-Skin Liquid Bandage/Spray Bandage and Scar Fade Gel (reduces the appearance of scars) and the New-Skin Poison Ivy Treatment.  These are products you can carry with you where ever you go, especially your car and purse. The New-Skin Spray Bandage is great if you like the outdoors. The outdoors is fun, but sometimes you will fall and cut yourself.  Another thing outdoor people might have to worry about is Poison Ivy. Wow, I have never been around Poison Ivy, but for those who have, the itching is probably very uncomfortable. This Poison Ivy Treatment uses a non-toxic wash and removes the toxic oils from the Ivy.  The New-Skin Bandage is also excellent for other activities like working with wood, glass or just everyday living. Almost everyone I know, including myself, has a scar. It is possible to heal a scar faster than you ever thought before. In fact, this Scar-Fade will fade an old scar as well.

Mommy Made A Pumpkin Cake Roll

This is a fun dessert to make. I made this last year and it was a big hit. I found this recipe on All Last year I found this recipe at another website, but lost the recipe so I went to this website which I use all the time.

So, for this dessert, I used canned pumpkin, butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, sugar, cream cheese and powdered sugar. The cake is made with all but the last two ingredients (they are for the inside of the cake). Once the cake is baked, it has to cool down a while, the wrap it in a non cotton towel and place in refrigerator for a while. When the cake is cool, unwrap the towel and with the frosting mix, spread it all over the cake.

Once all the frosting is used, roll up the cake and place back in the refrigerator until it is time to devour with family and friends.

Now, this recipe is not completely as it should be made, so here is the recipe for you to make: Pumpkin Cake Roll.

Twins and Mommy Making Turkey Place Cards

These Turkey Place Cards were so much fun to make. They were easy to make too. All I needed was some card stock paper, white, some orange, red and yellow ink (in one case from your favorite craft store) and some googely eyes.

This craft project took about three hours to make and look so cute once completed. My twins, and Mommy, had fun with this craft because we got to stick out pointer finger in each of the colors and make feathers in each color on the card stock, 3x4 and folded in half.

Here is the final craft looks like. Oh, this is so easy it can also be made for Christmas or any occasion.

Twins and Mommy Making Turkey Cupcakes

This is the third of four Fall/Thanksgiving crafts. This craft was fun because we added one of TwinGirlie "A"s favorite Fall candy: candy corn. Oh this Fall season Mommy had purchased a big bag of Candy Corn because I knew TwiceGirlie "A", more than TwiceGirlie "B" likes to eat them.

So when I found this craft, snack, to make with my twins, it was fun to add the candy corn as the Turkey Feathers. Baking the yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting was easy as I baked them as cupcakes are normally baked. After they were baked, I let them cool down and I frosted the majority of the cupcakes and let the twins frost four cupcakes each.

Once all the cupcakes were frosted, Mommy, then twins (separately) added the candy corn to the back of the cupcake, one or two rows, the added Keebler Sandies Cookies as the body and two wings. When these were added, Mommy, then twins (separately) an eye and red wattle. The Turkey Cupcakes not only looked cute, they tasted good too. This craft was supposed to use Mini Sandies, but I could not find them and had to break the big ones in half and cut then to fit the cupcake.

I brought the cupcakes to my Aunt's home for Thanksgiving and we had one each, I left four with my Aunt and Uncle, and took the rest home.

Twins and Mommy Making Thanksgiving Garland of Leaves

This is another cute craft my twins and Mommy (me) made at home a couple days before Thanksgiving. Yeah, I should have done all these crafts like a week before Thanksgiving, but this idea just came to me at the last moment. Well, better late than never, right!

Okay, so this is two of four crafts we did together. This was a fun craft, although it did take a while and tested patients, twins and Mommy. This was a fun craft though. I looked for templates online, printed them out and my twins and Mommy put the templates on four colors of construction paper. Them we outlined the leaves with pencil and we cut the leaves out in the colors of Fall: Orange, Brown, Red and Yellow..well we also used some Green.

Once the leaves were cut out, we put some glitter glue down the middle and sides of leaves. Let the glue dry, them we crumbled the leaves as suggested for this craft. Them Mommy used the hole puncher at the top of each leave and put each hole of the leaf into a string of yarn.

The Thanksgiving Leaf Garland looks like this and it is so pretty!

Okay, the garland is over the sliding glass door, with the lights..can you see them? They are so pretty and totally worth making.

Making Thanksgiving Crafts at Home

Last week, two days before Thanksgiving, my twins and Mommy (that is me), made a Hand print Turkey's from three construction paper colors. We used brown, orange and red for the feathers. It was fun to make and did not take too long.

For each color, my twins, and Mommy, outlined our hands on the paper. We used one hand and even though all the hand prints were supposed to match up...well...they did not..but they still turned out so cute. Along with the colored construction paper for the feathers and body, we added googly eyes and made a yellow triangle nose. After the turkey's were made, I glued them to a green background.

This was just one of four crafts we did in two or three days. Now, as cute as this craft is, wait until you see the other three crafts. You know, this is one of the good things about the Internet, you can find crafts to do with your children, or students, online instead of purchasing a craft book with crafts you might never use.

The New Way To Eat A Lunch Away From Home

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

There is a new way to eat lunch when you, or your children, are away from home. Have you heard of the PackIt lunch boxes? If not, how come? There are commercials on T.V., popular named stores sell these awesome lunch boxes and of course they are sold online. These are the best lunch boxes around, especially if your children like eating meat lunches and want their drinks to stay cold. Plus, there is no need to purchase those cold packs you will forget to place in the freezer or will thaw out and will tear. With this new way to keep lunches cold, you will never have to purchase another lunch box cold pack again.

Picture 17

There is no need to ever worry about this lunch box thawing out because it stays cold for up to 10 hours and will fit in your freezer because it folds too. This lunch box is not only for kids, but can be used for anyone on the go, take it to the office and is great for keeping baby milk bottles cold too. 

The best thing about this new lunch box is it  non toxic, sweat proof and was featured on The Martha Stewart show too. This amazing little lunch box was a brain child of two single moms looking for a better way to keep their kids lunches cold without using ice packs or filling sandwich bags with ice.

I just love this lunch box, I mean what a great idea, right? Moms no longer need to use ice packs and pray their child's food stays cold. This is the best thing since....sliced bread and for a limited time you can purchase a PackIt lunch box and get one free for only $19.95. This is awesome if you have two kids going to school or you like to take them to the park.

 So, tell me why you like the PackIt lunch box, how it is different from the "old school" lunch boxes  and what you would use it for..
