$200 Cash Thank You Giveaway

Welcome to MY $200 Cash Thank You Giveaway!

   

My Vegan Gluten Free Life is celebrating passing 15,000 Fans on Facebook and we are having a Thank You giveaway for my readers. It is all because of YOU, my readers that My Vegan Gluten Free Life is growing! And we are so thankful!

I had asked my readers what they would like as a Thank You gift and I got some great ideas such as a solar dehydrator, juicer, vegan gluten-free goodies or cookbooks and even donations to P.E.T.A. These are all great ideas, but I decided to give away $200 CASH via PayPal Cash or a Visa Gift Card to one lucky reader as my way of saying Thank You. I thought that giving cash would make it easier for the winner to get or give exactly what they would like as my thank you gift.

So again, I want to say THANK YOU so much to my readers! I really appreciate you! I hope you will continue to leave comments on posts and contacting me regarding your concerns. I want to get to know you even better. My goal is to make this blog a place you love to come to for sharing and commenting on health concerns, recipes and more! And most important is that I want this blog to feel like a safe place to share your concerns.

Now on to the $200 Cash Thank You Giveaway.



Listen up my Canadian friends, this $200 Cash Thank You Giveaway is open to the US and Canada!
You must be 18+ to qualify to win.
This event will close March 16 at 12:00 AM EST.
Cash will be awarded by the winners choice of either PayPal Cash or Visa Gift Card.

March Mobile Mom Giveaway

 

Welcome to the Ultimate Mobile Mom Giveaway sponsored by MobileMom.com, ConceiveEasy, From Pea to Pumpkin, Lansinoh and Cosco!

Screen Shot 2013-02-24 at 1.22.23 PM
This is an amazing group of prizes!

Before we get to the giveaway I want to introduce to you MobileMom.com and their Ovulation Calculator app. The Ovulation Calculator can tip the odds of getting pregnant in your favor to help make your baby dreams a reality. Each month you have a small fertile window, usually 10 to 18 days after the first day of your period. The Ovulation Calculator helps you quickly determine your most fertile days based on the date you provide and your cycle length:
  • Enter the first day of your last menstrual period
  • Enter the length of your menstrual cycle
The Ovulation Calculator instantly determines your 6 most fertile days in the current month and in each of the following 4 to 5 months, giving you a better understanding of your monthly cycle. The results also include the baby’s due date should you happen to conceive during that month. Whether you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while or are just starting to think about having a baby, the Ovulation Calculator is a great first step towards your ultimate goal — a baby to love! Below are some items from our sponsors to help you along the path from conception to pregnancy & beyond:

 

Trying to conceive a child can be a really frustrating experience for a lot of couples. One of the reasons is because they feel like they have no control. For some it is completely beyond their control and our hearts sincerely go out to them. For others, there are ways to increase the likelihood of getting pregnant and the ConceiveEasy Trying to Conceive Starter Kit can help give them the tools they need in one convenient kit. For more information visit www.conceiveeasy.com.

 

Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman's life. It's full of hopes and dreams of what the future holds as the life inside of you grows. A growing baby in the womb is often compared to in size to that of various fruits and vegetables. The pregnancy journal From Pea to Pumpkin showcases your baby's weekly growth with beautiful watercolor illustrations of these fruits and vegetables. It also provides a place to record your thoughts and memories during this miraculous time. The book features dozens of easy fill-in prompts, a ribbon bookmark place holder and spots for ultrasounds and photographs.
 
From Pea to Pumpkin is also providing a Baby K'tan baby carrier as part of the prize package! For more information about their pregnancy journal visit www.peatopumpkin.com.
Pump with ease with the Lansinoh Affinity Pro Double Electric Breast Pump, the only pump with three customizable pumping styles to maximize comfort and milk production. Just adjust the cycle and suction on the LCD screen for the ultimate custom pumping experience available. The Affinity Pro Breast Pump features a built in timer, comfort fit flanges, bottle holders that prevent milk spills and a compact, lightweight portable base that fits easily into the included carrying tote. BPA free and hygienically designed so that no milk backs up into the tubing, you can rest assured that your milk stays pristine for baby's consumption. For more information visit www.lansinoh.com.
 
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends the rear facing position as long as possible as long as the child fits within the manufacturer's height and weight requirements. The Cosco Apt 40RF carseat allows a rear facing ride all the way up to 40 pounds and 40 inches. If your child is at least one year old and over 40 inches the Costco Apt 40RF convertible car seat can be switched to forward facing until your child reaches 43 inches. The carseat features side impact protection and a 5 point center front adjustable harness for safety. The harness has 4 heights and 3 buckle locations for the perfect fit. Two integrated cup holders offer convenience on the road. The Cosco Apt 40RF is available in several different colors and patterns and retails for around $55. For more information visit www.coscojuvenile.djgusa.com.

Magic Whiteboard Review

I recently had the opportunity to try a Magic Whiteboard Letter Sheet. It's essentially a whiteboard sheet that's thin and magically sticks to anything! I stuck it to my walls, my fridge, my cupboards, my table, the windows, and the kids even figured it would stick to my tshirt!

Mine was pretty wrinkled in shipping, but it still works wonderfully, and the wrinkles are smoothing out as it's used. I'm using it as a shopping list on the fridge right now, but the kids love it to draw pictures on (and move them wherever they want!)

Here's a cool video showing several of their products and how they can be used:


And here's a quick one I made that shows how easy it is to move.


video

Magic Whiteboard Products make so many cool products. I love the Magic Blackout Blind!

It's a cling that blacks out your window so you can sleep! Then remove it without any damage to your window!

Want to find out more about Magic Whiteboard Products? Find them on their website, on Facebook or on Twitter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Bread Recall! This is a big one!

Bimbo Bakeries has recalled a TON of their breads, due to "possible presence of flexible wire" in the bread!

Affected products are:

 

Arnold, Brownberry, Earthgrains, Farm, Harmons, L’oven Fresh, Stroehmann 
and Sara Lee Multi-grain Breads and Sara Lee Thin Style Buns

Valentine's Day Craft Ideas

We've done a couple Valentine's crafts so far (mostly with Girl Scouts), and we'll be doing several more.

But I thought I'd share what we've done so far so that you have time to work on them if you're interested!


We made placemats (ignore how lumpy they are... I was doing the sample really quickly!) 2 pieces of Contac paper, a few heart cutouts, and the edging is wrapping paper from Target's $1 bin (ribbon would work too but it was out of my price range to do it for 10 girls!)

These are my all-time favorite quick craft, and it's crazy cheap! Holiday themed bookmarks... Use multicolored paint chips (I cut off the color names and numbers and got 2 per paint chip). Then use a heart shaped hole punch, which was only $4 at Michael's (on sale for $2!). Punch a hole in the end and thread ribbon through it.

My kids have gone nuts with this, we went back and bought several shaped punchers while they were on sale. And Bok Boy made a bunch of them for his teacher to use as prizes in the classroom. Plus, the punched out hearts are perfect for filler for the placemat craft!

Awesome handmade candle that you can do right now!

Before Christmas hubby was walking around the house muttering about making a candle, and I was looking at him like he was crazy. He's definitely never been interested in making candles since I've known him!

20 minutes later we had a wonderful smelling, super cute handmade candle!

Isn't this adorable? I have no idea where he originally found the directions, but you take a tangerine (you can probably do it with an orange), slice it in half through the skin, then very carefully extract the fruit. Leave the white stringy part (that runs between the fruit pieces) intact on the peel.

That's your wick. Very cool, huh?

Fill with oil of your choice (hubby used olive oil). He then tore a piece of the other half and made a top for it.

Now it glows!


I love this idea, and you almost always have the parts on hand. Try making them yourself!
