I Love Oriental Trading for Thanksgiving!



Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays. Although we have a small family, we really enjoy the preparations, and that Thanksgiving is always reminding me of all the fall things I love.

This year was so much fun because I did some crafts with the kids, and we had some neat Thanksgiving themed items that we got from Oriental Trading. Here are my favorites!


Enter with a Thankful Heart Wreath Craft Kit


This was so much fun to make with the kids! Each one had a different design because the leaves can be placed any way you like. 
This foam decoration is perfect to hang near your entryway! Includes self-adhesive pieces and nylon ribbon. 9 1/2". All craft kit pieces are pre-packaged for individual use. Kits include instructions and extra pieces.
$13.99 for 12 kits!


Fall Leaves Buttermints


I put a plate of these out a few days before Thanksgiving and the kids were really excited! They loved the falling leaves on the packages, and they are really tasty too!

Decorated with festive fall leaves, these buttermints are a sweet treat for the season's celebrations. Keep a bowl on your table for Thanksgiving guests! They're also nice Halloween handouts. Individually wrapped. (Approx. 108 pcs. per unit)
$6.99 for 108 pieces!

4-Color Crayola® Model Magic® Classpack


This is by far my favorite item. It's not Thanksgiving themed, but we definitely had a lot of fun with Thanksgiving crafts using it! I had the kids make pumpkins and turkeys and we made hand prints and rolled out their names. So much fun for any holiday!
Oh, the things they'll create with Crayola® Model Magic® Classpack®! Kids can't get enough of this non-staining, lightweight modeling material. It's soft and easily molded for hours of artistic fun. Teachers love this modeling compound thanks to its air-dry feature - no oven is needed to harden it! Includes the colors red, yellow, blue and white. Safe and non-toxic.
$44.99 for a huge box of 75 pouches!


I love these kits! The kids had a blast making them, so easy to do too, just grab a stick of glue and you are good to go!
Our Turkey Craft Kit for kids is a wonderful way to get the whole family into the spirit of the holiday! This DIY Thanksgiving craft is perfect for family quality time at home, or add it to your classroom supplies and discuss the story of the first Thanksgiving with your students as they keep their hands busy with these terrific turkeys. The finished products make great Thanksgiving decorations for the family dining room or school cafeteria. Happy Turkey Day!
$6.99 for 12 kits!

Happy Wax All Natural Soy Melts!




I spent most of my life being a candle lover. I really didn't know anything else even existed until a few years ago when I saw a Wax Burner at Target and was intrigued. I didn't buy one that day because I wasn't sure if it would work the way a candle does. I love lighting a candle and getting the scent immediately. 





Recently, I was sent a package from Happy Wax. The package came full with a Wax Warmer, and some Wax Melts. I decided now was the time to test them compared to candles.




The first scent I tried was the Citrus Wax Melts, which is a mix of Citron Mandarin, Grapefruit Mangosteen, and Cucumber Melon bear-shaped soy wax melts perfect for citrus lovers!




The scent was AMAZING! First of all, it started working right away, not at all like I thought it would..I thought it would take an hour or so, but NO! Within 10 minutes my room smelled like an orange grove!

The Happy Wax Melts are:
OURS OF FLAME-FREE FUN - Every Specialty Tin contains 24-26 bears (100 hours burn time) and every Half Pounder Pouch contains approximately 60 bears (225 hours burn time).  Typically melted 2 at a time. You'll get 12 uses or more from every tin and over 30 from every pouch.


ALL NATURAL & MADE IN AMERICA - 100% vegetable-based soy wax is biodegradable, made from renewable resources and American farm-grown soybeans.
BREAK FREE OF THE BRICK - Fun shapes make mixing and melting in your wax warmer a breeze!
CITRUS BLISS - A mix of Citron Mandarin, Grapefruit Mangosteen, and Cucumber Melon bear-shaped soy wax melts perfect for citrus lovers!
LONG-LASTING SCENTS - Soy wax burns cleaner, lasts longer than paraffin-based products.

DIRECTIONS – We recommend starting with one bear for small, plug-in warmers, and 2-3 for larger warmers. Mixing melts is highly recommended!
I definitely recommend checking them out, for the price, and the scents, they are amazing! I am never going back to candles again!

Tips for Keeping Your Pet Calm During the Holidays



Just like people, pets require special care during those long winter months to protect them from painful joints, arthritis, and other cold weather ailments. Here are some winter pet tips from Dr. Hillary Cook, a holistic veterinarian who works with NHV Natural Pet Products, makers of veterinarian-approved and formulated plant-based natural supplements from organically grown and wild crafted herbs, to keep your pet safe and happy this winter.

Winter Walks – After walking your dog during the winter months, make sure to towel dry them completely. Take extra care around paw pads. Wipe this area with a wet clean cloth to remove any salt or chemicals from the road. Rub NHV Heal Care Ointment on cleaned paw pads to protect and soothe. Without proper care, pet paw pads can become dry, cracked and very painful. For other pets, like cats, outside time should be limited, since they may seek warmth in unsafe places, such as a car radiator.

Shake Off Those Winter Blues – Most pet owners tend not to take dogs and other pets out for long periods of time during the winter, because it’s understandably too cold even for us humans. However, pets need still need exercise and mental stimulation. A lack of both these needs may cause stress, anxiety, and destructive behaviors. There are plenty of indoor games that can keep pets occupied and out of trouble. Try treat dispensing toys, puzzle toys, tread mills, exercise balls… which can keep dogs occupied for hours; for cats, a motorized mouse would work. To ease restlessness and stress from being indoors, use NHV Lesstress for dogs or NHV Matricalm for cats. These formulas help calm the nerves without affecting moods and personality, and are safe for long term use.

Happy Pets Have Healthy Skin – As the cold weather begins to blow, dogs and cats are prone to dry skin. To improve overall coat condition, and help with skin issues from the inside-out, add omega-3 fatty acids to their diet. Studies show that dogs and cats given omega 3 fatty acids (try NHV PetOmega 3) had improvement in clinical signs of pruitis, self trauma, coat character, and alopecia (loss of hair).

Staying Cozy – Cats and dogs feel the chill of winter extra deep in their bones (just like us people!). Be sure to give them more blankets during the winter months. If taking small dogs outside, dress them in a sweater or jacket as they are unable to generate the heat they need themselves. Larger dogs tend to suffer the effects of stiff joints and arthritic pain, and as they need all their muscles to support their weight, keeping them limber and pain free is important. There are plenty of orthopedic beds for larger dog breeds that will help. In addition, supplement their diet with NHV Yucca and NHV Old Timer, which will aid with joint pain, soothe inflammation, and help pets suffering from arthritis. Remember to keep arthritic dogs and cats moving in the winter especially, if joints are not mobile arthritis is compounded.

Don’t Hold It! In the winter, I see an increase in UTI’s from animals holding in urine because it’s too cold outside. Make sure dogs get enough time outside to do their business. If a UTI develops see your veterinarian. You may also want to try NHV Tripsy, a natural supplement that will help support the health of the kidneys and bladder throughout the winter months.

Watch That Winter Weight: Less exercise means less calories are expended, and is true for any indoor dog who is not going out for their regular walks. Follow recommended feeding guidelines for your dog, but do not over feed. However, if dogs are housed outside, they need more calories. Studies suggest that dogs who are exposed to low temperatures need three times the normal calories as they would need in moderate temperature. Use NHV Multi Essentials, a herbal multivitamin to fill nutritional gaps for outdoor and indoor pets. Both NHV and myself as a veterinary practioners strongly recommend that pets be housed indoors, especially in the winter.


Don’t Get Close To The Heat – In an effort to stay warm, pets may get too close to heat sources, which can be dangerous. Be sure to keep fireplaces gated or closed, and heat sources like baseboard heaters and radiators out of reach from pets. Should pets accidentally burn themselves, take the animal to the vet right away. For after emergency care of burns use NHV All Clear Ointment and NHV Ouch Away Spray to help heal external trauma, fight infections, and reduce inflammation.





Dr. Hillary Cook, NHV's lead holistic vet, is a graduate of Virginia Maryland Regional Veterinary Medical school. She has been practicing holistic and integrative veterinary medicine for fifteen years. She certified in Veterinary acupuncture and is fully qualified in Western and Chinese herbalism. She is the owner of Animal Wellness Center, an integrative veterinary clinic in Crozet, VA.

Get your Halloween Costume from TvStoreOnline.com



Having a teenager has its advantages, and its disadvantages. One disadvantage (for me anyway) is that he isn't into Halloween anymore. Not the trick or treating part which is the BEST part! But now, he goes to Halloween parties and hangs out with his friends. So superhero costumes are OFF the list. When I was SEARCHING online to find something that he and I could agree on, we came across TvStoreOnline.com and found some really cool costumes! 





I love that this site lets me keep it as simple or complex as I want it. I can choose a Charlie Brown T Shirt (shown above) or go all out like we did and get a Ride On Costume. 


Xander chose the Ride on Elephant. He thinks its cool enough to impress friends, but not too child like or scary. The costume comes in regular or plus so a wide variety can fit! It also comes in kid sizes for the whole family!



We think this costume is HILARIOUS and so did some friends who were visiting. Check out the video to see it in action. 




TvStoreOnline.com definitely has a lot of choices in costumes, if you're into superheroes, The Office, or even being a Sumo Wrestler. You can find some unique choices!

Paw Pods Biodegradable Pet Caskets and Urns





It's never easy to say goodbye to your pet. I have done it so many times, today I'll share a story about when I wish I had a Paw Pod. 

Gizmo was my shih-tzu. My husband bought him for me for Valentine's Day in 1996, the year we got married. He was 8 weeks old, and the cutest puppy ever. People would stop and ask us where we got such a cute dog. Gizmo traveled the states with us when he was 3 years old, we drove across country and all up and down the west coast. When we moved to Los Angeles, my husband and I only had him, we were married for 10 years before kids, so to us, he was our baby. In L.A. we would take him to dog parks, and to the Malibu beach, and Santa Monica Pier...the long train on Venice Beach..he went everywhere with us. 

When Xander was born, he loved him, he would curl up and sleep next to Xander every night, I think he was protecting him. 

Then, when I was 6 months pregnant with my 2nd child, we got up one day and my little Gizmo (who was now almost 11 years old) was bleeding when he urinated. We had just moved to FL from Nevada, and had JUST been able to afford to get the apartment we were in. So I knew this was not good. We rushed him to the nearest vet, and they told us that he had kidney stones. He needed immediate surgery which was going to cost $1500. We didn't have it, we didn't have credit cards to put it on, we didn't have family to ask or any friends in FL to help us. It was such an awful feeling to know we had to put him down. The vet said that was the only other option. 

I cried. I sat there with him while they did it, and I remember his big sigh when the pain medication had gone in, I cried so hard that I pushed myself into pre-term labor, and almost ended up losing my newborn too. 

I didn't have any other pets for a long time, because I didn't want a pet if I couldn't ever not afford to get it the care it needed. 

Gizmo's body was kept by the vet's office, I left with nothing. Nothing to remember him by, well, I do have a stuffed toy that was his that I cherish, but I wish I could have buried him. The vet asked if I wanted to take him home, but I couldn't deal with the thought of putting him into a box. If I had already had a Paw Pod, it would have been much easier, and now I am keeping a Paw Pod for my dog and my cat, just in case, for someday.




Paw Pods eco-friendly, biodegradable pet burial pods and urns help provide closure for your customers during one of life’s most difficult times. Paw Pods make the terrible experience of losing a pet better by delivering the body of the beloved family member in a dignified manner. At Paw Pods we want to do our part to protect the environment. Our Pods are made from 100% biodegradable materials. Our remarkable durable pods and urns are constructed of bamboo fiber and rice husk. Each Pod is accompanied with a sympathy card and seeded leaf designed for planting with the pod to create a living memorial. Our green-conscious philosophy underlies all of our development and production activities.

You can purchase Paw Pods at Bed Bath and Beyond or on Amazon. With so many size options available, you are sure to get the right one for your pet.

The EZVIZ Mini Trooper is such a great camera! I love that I can use it indoor or outdoor, and it's super easy to install! Plus you only need one base station to control 6 cameras, this means I can put the cameras all around the outside of the house and access them all from one port!

ZipSign is a Dry Erase Sign You Can Customize and Take On The Go!



It's so much fun to make signs, and there are so many uses. This last year before school I bought paper signs and wrote First Day of 5th Grade on one of them for my son, and he held it up and I took his picture. I remember thinking there was nothing I could do with the sign now except throw it away, and I would have loved to have gotten a picture of him at school with the sign, but with all the chaos, it was going to get messy in the car.

ZipSign has a portable roll up dry erase board that you can write on, roll and take on the go. This would have been so much easier. I am definitely going to be using mine for things like the airport, my kids sports games, and even camp this summer. You can also use them to write signs like "Happy Birthday Nana" and hang them on the wall! So easy!


This is how the ZipSign works!

  1. Unroll the ZipSign.
  2. Use a dry erase or permanent marker to create your message or design.
