Another Freebie!

I got a hot tip from my friend Sarah about another free photo book! This one is from the folks at Inkubook. She saw the tip on this blog--Simplemom (check it out here for how to get the deal). So, I spent several hours putting together our wedding album 5 years late! ;) It had over 50 pages, and was free aside from shipping and handling! Hot spam (as my mom would say)! I'm so excited to see my new books! This software wasn't quite as intuitive as snapfish to use, however, once you play around with it, you can get the hang of it--and the free book was over twice as large as the snapfish one--score!

PS--This offer also expires this Sunday, and you have to invite a friend to send a picture or some text for your book to get it free. This was easy, and if I know you, let me know, and I'll get your back! Or you could just use your husband's e-mail address to set up another account like I did. :)

I LOVE 'em! So, I thought I'd pass this one on--I just paid $7.44 (which = shipping and handling only) for a $30 snapfish photobook that I would already have to pay shipping on--SCORE!

Want one? You have to go the oprah's website and link through it to snapfish to put the coupon into your account (don't log in first--and if you don't have an account, then you can create one after linking).

On second thought, Freebies 4 Mom describes the whole thing much better. Why re-invent the wheel? Just click on that link for wonderfully layed out info. on the whole schmeal! They even have some links to figure it out if you don't think the credit is applying to your order, which happened to me--after all the work of putting together an album that was a little frustrating!

This would also make a fabulous Christmas gift, or if you are looking into starting a business where it would be nice to have a portfolio of past work, then I think this would rock. On Oprah's site, they actually suggested scanning your child's artwork into your computer and making a book of it so that it doesn't clutter your house--which is an amazing idea; of course, Nehemiah is a little young to have too much artwork just yet. ;D

This offer has to be started by Friday at 11:59 pm for you to take advantage, and the Photo book must be ordered by Sunday. Just an FYI since it is a limited time offer!

Veteran's Day

I am not so far removed from being a military wife that I don't remember what it is like. I hope I never forget. There is so much sacrifice and faith required of both servicemen and their families.

So I'd like to say thank you to those who do serve and who have served. I would like to thank my husband and the men of the 2nd Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment. I would like to remember departed friends and comrades, Sgts. Blessing and Tillman, and others we know who came back with serious injuries (physical and mental/emotional). Please pray for these brave men who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and for the friends and family that back them up. Every soldier who has served in a war zone is still living with consequences resulting from their service to some extent.

Thank a veteran; don't let this opportunity pass you by!
