Collage.com Aluminum Photo Ornament #Giveaway

Aluminum Ornament from Collage.com
Prices start at $24.99 and the design you create is on the front and the back!

Finding the perfect photo gift is now made easy with Collage.com. They have everything from ornaments, to mugs, to pillows...and they have more uncommon things like photo wrapping paper and aluminum photo sheets, both of which I will be reviewing (and giving away!!) soon.

Today I'm reviewing the custom aluminum ornament they offer, in either a 3" x 2" rectangle or a 2.375" x 3" rectangle. Either ornament can have up to SIX pictures on it, and the design prints on both the front and the back.

I toyed around with who to gift this ornament too (personalized ornaments always make such good Christmas gifts!) and opted for my son and his wife. Many of you know they had a baby girl in 2013, and she has quickly become the apple of all of our eyes. Not near as exciting as our little sweet baby girl, but still pretty cool, my son also purchased a DSLR camera about a year ago, and he and his wife are getting pretty good at using it. One day on a beach visit they took this year, they played with the camera a bit and got two photos that I really loved. I decided to use those to make the ornament.

This is a copy of the actual page I was working on to create my ornament.
This is with no background, but you can see the many edit options available to you.

This was one of the many backgrounds you could choose from.
I chose to write the year on mine.

When you are creating the ornament, you can move the pictures anywhere you want them to go, which is so much nicer than a standard template that just won't budge.  You can also choose from a multitude of backgrounds. I finally decided on the black because I thought it lent an elegance that I don't usually go for in my ornament selections (I generally opt for 'cute').

This is the final ornament...the design is on the front and the back.
The red string comes with it for hanging.

I couldn't be more pleased with how the ornament turned out, and it's already in the mail on the way to my son's home. There is no doubt at all that they are going to love it. I know I do.

Take a look around Collage.com and see all of the wonderful items they have for you to make out of your precious photos.  You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Don't forget to check back next week for a photo wrapping paper (cool right?) and aluminum panel giveaway that Collage.com and I collaborated on as well. You're not going to want to miss those!

One lucky winner gets an ornament to call their own. US entrants only.

Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri!

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. No other form of compensation took place. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Shredded Kale Salad

Let me tell you what I'm cooking up in my new Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri!

This pan has only been in our house for a short time, and I have already used it half a dozen times. Today I used it to make my Kale Salad for lunch. This salad is packed full of yummy deliciousness, and since I was outside picking up the yard in the cold, I wanted a warm salad. This one hit the spot.

100% PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non-stick coating
8" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri
Available for purchase at Amazon.

The Ozeri is nice and weighty, so I don't have to worry about it tipping over while I'm cooking. It also has a handle that is chunky and solid. The handle is perfectly tight too, which makes me happy. I hate a wobbly handle, and if a pan has one, I won't use it. The best thing about the pan so far though, is not having to use olive oil, butter, or spray to make it non-stick. The Ozeri pan uses an ultra-safe ceramic coating that is 100% PTFE and PFOA-free. That means it delivers non-stick performance with no harmful fumes or toxins being released when it gets hot.

This 8" pan was the perfect size for making homemade cranberry sauce!
In addition to my warm salad, I have also used my pan for making homemade cranberry sauce with pineapples and walnuts (for Thanksgiving dinner)...

Nothing at all in the pan (but the eggs) & they flipped like a dream!
No sticking!
and for hubby's morning eggs. The ceramic no-stick required nothing at all in the pan to flip the eggs with ease, and there was no sticking. Zero, nada, zilch, zip. Hurrah!

We have a dishwasher, but I don't use it (crazy, I know), so this pan will only be hand-washed here. That is what I would recommend if you get it too. I haven't had it long enough to talk about longevity, but so far, so good....we're really loving our new Ozeri pan.

You can learn more about it by visiting the product on Amazon. It's on sale right now for just $22.00.

Holiday of Surprises Weeks 4, 5 and 6 Giveaways

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey did not receive compensation to help promote this giveaway and is not responsible for prize delivery.

It's officially holiday shopping season! Hubby and I hibernate on Black Friday. We went to a store one year and it was sooooooooo crowded we left. The scene was amusing though, with people sitting on fold-out chairs in the store, eating while they waited. Or sleeping on pillows in line until it was time to move. We swore we'd never go back... so of course, the next year we did, and it was a repeat scenario, we walked in, saw the lines, and walked back out. That being said my in-laws were out shopping hearty...my MIL and her clan always do, they're far braver than I. What about you, did you get your Black Friday shopping on? 

Bill over at Holiday Contest and Sweeps has some great giveaways going on for those of you still looking for holiday gifts...or who would just like to treat themselves. Check them out below, he's got a pretty impressive line up going on.  
Shopping can be fun... but winning is more fun. ;)  Good luck to all who enter. :)

Michael Phillip Cash: Kindle Fire and PayPal Cash #Giveaway

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey did not receive compensation to help promote this giveaway and is not responsible for prize delivery.



There are not a lot of people who can make me interested in stepping out of what I like to read when it comes to books. Miki from Miki's Hope is one exception. She did a review on a Michael Phillip Cash book that sounded too good to pass up. I purchased the book and it ended up being one of those reads you're not putting up until you absolutely have to...because you want to know what's going to happen next. It also ended up being a book I thought about for several days after, and still think about every now and again. It was really just that good. So when I was asked to join in on a giveaway featuring him, I was happy to oblige.

Award winning and best-selling author Michael Phillip Cash has eight novels to date. Stillwell won Honorable Mention for The Book of the Year Foreword Review 2014. Brood X was The Book of the Year for Readers Views and Rebecca's Reads. Cash loves writing about Long Island, its rich history and ghostly inhabitants.

Windy Wordless Wednesday


We had a wind storm whip through here this week (see the trees physically toppling over?).

It knocked one tree over onto the corner of our big barn, and whipped open the little door up high.

This was the loudest/biggest break. The top went directly between two out buildings.
Our yard is now a big mess with downed trees and branches everywhere.
We have some pretty huge trees directly over our house,
and they didn't fall, so despite the mess, we're still feeling pretty lucky!

Carole P. Roman Giveaway #Win Kindle Fire and Cash Prizes

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey did not receive compensation to help promote this giveaway and is not responsible for prize delivery.



My son has a Kindle Fire and he loves it. It's great for reading, games, and surfing the 'net when he's got questions. It's also good for me to research and learn about new-to-me books and authors. I've found both with author Carole P. Roman.

Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born."Captain No Beard- An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life" has not only been named to Kirkus Best of 2012, it received the Star of Remarkable Merit, and won the Pinnacle Award for 2012. "Pepper Parrot's Problem with Patience" Book 2 in the series, received 5 Stars from The ForeWord Review The Clarion Review. Strangers on the High Seas has won second place in the Rebecca's Reads Choice Awards 2013. It has followed with six more books to the series.
Motivated by her love of Yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible Yoga can be. 

Her non-fiction series, "If You Were Me and Lived in..." combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us. The debut book in the series, "If You Were Me and Lived in...Mexico" has won the Pinnacle Award for Best in Children's Non Fiction 2012. France, South Korea, and Norway. Rebecca's Reads has given If You Were Me and Lived in...Norway an honorable mention in the 2013 Choice Awards. If You Were Me and lived in ...France won second place. ForeWord Review has nominated If You Were Me and Lived in...France for best in children's non fiction literature 2013. 

Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
