Product Review: My Caring Cross

Published November 15, 2011 by busymommyof3

I received a beautiful, hand carved, wooden cross last week from My Caring Cross. Upon opening the package, I must say that I was very impressed with the craftsmanship. The cross is about 4″ high and 2.5″ wide. The olive wood is very smooth. You can rub it without getting a splinter and it fits perfectly in a purse and can also be displayed in a house.

This handicraft is authentic Holy Land Olive Woods from Bethlehem. Here are some pics…

You can see how beautiful it is.

I carried the cross in my purse for a week. Needless to say, it has been a very good week. Was it because I was carrying the cross? I am not sure. Here it is in my messy purse…

Another nice thing about these crosses is that you can give them as wedding gifts. Initially these crosses come with a pouch, but for wedding gifts, you can use the cream colored bag (as pictured below):

See the card inside of the bag? It is a card that has the names of the people to get married with the date and a little message saying “Thank you for being apart of our special day.” Simple, nice and a great little gift to be a spiritual lifter.

These are perfect for church events/fundraisers as well.

Right now My Caring Cross has a Christmas special on their website: 2 crosses available for $10 and 8 crosses for $32 delivered within the US.

Eco-Friendly and Organic Cleaners…

Published November 10, 2011 by busymommyof3

Are you looking to use eco-friendly/organic house cleaners but are not sure which one to use or it it will work well? Well, there are a few products that I have been using a while and it works perfectly!

For my kitchen, I use Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner. It smells nice (Lemongrass & Thyme scent) and it cleans well.

For the high chair or any toys, I use BabyGanics The Cleaner Upper Toy & Highchair Cleaner. It isn’t scented and cleans very well also. It even cleans up dried up baby food that is stuck on the high chair.

These are just a few examples of some really good eco-friendly/organic cleaners!

Starbucks Organic Serena Blend…Oh So YUMMY!

Published November 10, 2011 by busymommyof3




So I have been drinking Starbucks Organic Serena Blend for sometime now. I actually stopped drinking a brew and was drinking strictly latte’s for a few years. Honestly, I was so addicted to Starbucks, I was getting a quad venti latte every day-at least once and sometimes two times daily. Then I got laid off and got an espresso maker, purchased Starbucks Espresso blend and made my own lattes. Well, ever since I was in Vegas for my husband and I’s wedding/honeymoon, and we ordered room service a few times at our hotel, Venetian, I fell in love with their brew. I couldn’t find the correct blend though. It took me forever! Well, I decided to try the Organic Serena blend since it was Organic and I try to buy as much organic foods/drinks as I can. After I made my first cup, I realized that this must be the blend that Venetian uses. It was so good and doesn’t have a bitter taste! I love Starbucks. They are the best!

Product Review: Fun Printable Games!

Published November 7, 2011 by busymommyof3

I recently was asked to review Python Printable Games. I received a fall print out of games and coloring pages.

The really neat thing about this website is that you can go on there and print out as many games or coloring pages as you would like for any season/holiday. These games are perfect for many occasions and parties!

The one thing that I noticed about the fall print out is that not all of the games are super easy, many of them really require you to think about it! I like how they threw in the educational touch. And, I even saw on their website that they have an NFL Games packet as well! Perfect for killing time during half time  or commercials at your football party!!

You can actually consider this a “green” company because since they allow you to print off their website, they are not using packing or gas for shipping and so forth.

You can also enjoy this Fall printout yourself if you go to their website and subscribe to their newsletter. This Fall printout is a $14.95 value, so swing by and subscribe today before the special ends!

Product Review: Bryton Pick

Published November 6, 2011 by busymommyof3

Bryton Pick sent me 2 free tooth picks to review. I received them the other day and read the info that came with it. The first thing that I saw was that this is recyclable. I think that is great because we know how I strive to recycle everything that I can. Another awesome thing is that it is made of 100% recyclable materials!

This pick can be used for up to 30 days because the stainless steel cleaning strips are germ-resistant. It comes in a little pouch about the size of a credit card so you can carry it with you where ever you go! It’s thin and flexible and have been tested, developed and designed by dental professionals. This is FDA registered. The really neat thing about this dental pick is that it has rounded and blunt edges to reduce the risk of hurting your gums or disturbing any dental work that you may have had done. The Bryton Pick is sold in packs of 3 so you will be good for 3 months!

ADA statistics show that only about 12% of the population flosses regularly and the main reason is because floss is not convenient or easy to use. This pick is perfect for a quick on the go flossing.

While trying the pick I noticed how easy and quick it was to use. It glided right in between my teeth with no problem at all. It was easy and quick. This is definitely the better way to floss. I hate how when flossing you end up getting a gum bleed, with these picks, there is no chance of hurting your gums.

They have a variety of colors too! To check out their website:

Here’s some pics of the pick:
