Create the Perfect Valentine’s Gift With Posterjack + Discount Code

Posterjack Discount Code

There was a knock at my door this morning and upon answering it I saw a giant package with my name on it. This delivery was something I was eagerly awaiting as I knew it was the photo art Valentine’s Day gift that I created for my husband from Posterjack.

I quickly tore open the package and was in awe when I saw my creation come to life. It was more than I had imagined and I was so impressed.

VALENTINE’S DAY INSPIRATION

It was Posterjack’s Valentine’s Photo Shoot Pinterest board that got my creative juices flowing. There are so many cute ideas so be sure to check out their inspiration board yourself to see all the great suggestions.

Posterjack Photo Inspiration

Since I was making this gift for my husband, I wanted to focus on just the two of us. I loved the photo of the couple dancing with the lyrics of a song imposed on top of it so I went with this idea and used Posterjack’s Collage Maker to do so. I knew of the perfect photo to use from our first year anniversary celebration, our Ring Ceremony.

And of course, I chose the lyrics from the first song my husband sang and played to me on his guitar which also became our wedding song; “Your Song” by Elton John.

MY PHOTO ART CREATION

It was a tough decision to make on what medium I wanted to use to create my gift. There are so many options with Posterjack; from Canvas Prints to Acrylic Prints to Metal Prints and many more options. Ultimately I decided that a Gallery Frame would be the most pleasing and dramatic way to present this special photo.

PosterjackValentinesDay2

I chose a Rich Black frame with white matting in 24 x 32”.  It was a lot bigger than I had pictured especially for the price. I was impressed with the quality of the framing and print enlargement and the entire completed project.  I still can’t believe I was able to create a personal and sentimental high quality piece of art for less than $120! I can’t even begin to imagine how much this creation would cost at a local framing and photography store.

CREATING WITH POSTERJACK

You can visit Posterjack.ca to browse the different options for creating photo projects. You can also take a look at the user-friendly interface that assists in creating the perfect piece of art.

One of the features that I particularly love is the guide that will notify you if your photo quality is appropriate for the size and style you have chosen for your photo art. This ensures that you get the perfect print each time and that there are no surprises on delivery day.

We made room for this print in our bedroom and as I sit here and write this I keep glancing up at it and I get swept away with how beautiful it is. I had to gift this to my husband a little early as I needed his help to hang it and photograph it to show you today. He was truly touched at the sentiment and the fact that I paired a beautiful photo of us with the lyrics from “our song”.

PosterjackValentinesDay

This is definitely the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and I think it would also make an excellent anniversary gift.

MY STUCK ON YOU® PRODUCTS

I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review a few items from Stuck on You. It was fun looking through their plentiful list of products and designs; at the same time it was difficult to choose just a few. I finally ended up choosing a couple of back-to-school items and one decorative item for Little S’ room.

Designer Clothing Dots

StuckOnYouDesignerClothingDots

Kids Designer Clothing Dots from Stuck on You® are a handy sized label that is easy to apply to children’s clothing. Made from the highest quality materials, the washing machine and dryer safe labels will always stay stuck and maintain their colourful appearance.

Small, stick-on labels are a must-have in our household. Everything that goes to school with Little S needs to be labeled. And these labels don’t disappoint. They are the perfect size for small and large clothing labels as well as to fit inside a small child’s shoe.

Lunch Bags

StuckOnYouLunchBag

Lunch bags get tossed around, thrown places and really show their wear by the end of the school year. We replace Little S’ each September to start her off nice and fresh. The Stuck on You lunch bags are a perfect replacement! I loved the ability to personalize the lunch bag as well.

In the past we have used a detachable tag to personalize her lunch bag which is a reasonable option but with the Stuck on You personalized lunch bags, your child’s name is permanently included on the product. That means no tags falling off and no mix-ups in the coat room.

The lunch bag is big enough to fit a sandwich container, ice pack and snacks. They are also insulated to keep perishables safe!

Gift Ideas

Stuck on  You Canvases

Stuck on You has more than just back-to-school supplies. In fact, they have a gorgeous selection of cute gift ideas like height charts, reward charts and canvases.

I selected a medium canvas for Little S’ room. It’s so cute and she just loves it. Kids love to see their name in “professional” writing. There are so many designs to choose from for the entire Stuck on You line but I fell in love with the Sweetie Pie theme.

The canvases are made with artist quality canvas and then personalized with your child’s name and comes ready to hang. It’s lightweight so hanging was easy but still very durable. I can see these making great “new baby” gifts for your loved ones.

Getting Fit With Power Stroller Continued

Power Stroller

I am loving my experience in the Power Stroller group for many reasons, including all of the reasons I mentioned in my last post. Another reason I love Power Stroller is that it was originally founded in order to help raise money for under privileged children in our local schools.

“Many children in our communities are going hungry. In fact, numbers are staggering. 1 in 5 families live below the poverty line in London, Ontario alone.”

The program through Power Stroller is called Fit Mummies for Hungry Tummies. Working along with The Children’s Nutrition Network in London, Huron-Perth Eat & Learn Program in Stratford and the Elgin Community Nutrition Partnership in St. Thomas, Power Stroller’s goal is to take some of the burden off families who might be struggling to make ends meet by donating a portion of their proceeds to these programs.

Five weeks after getting the ‘OK’ to exercise after having my baby, I am noticing great results from the Power Stroller class with Bernice Robinson. Unfortunately, I was on vacation and missed a few classes in the beginning, but even still, while I haven’t lost any weight on the scale, I have definitely gained muscle definition.

This means that I have gained muscle and muscle weighs more than fat, so while the scale hasn’t changed yet, my confidence in my progress has! Meeting the other moms in the group and hearing about their experiences as new moms has been really reassuring as well. It is nice to know that we are all in the same boat and are going through the same challenges and experiences.

The group is so mom and baby friendly that just this past week, one of the moms stopped during our circuit training to nurse her son! Bernice informed her of the rest of our route in the park and she was able to catch up to us and continue the workout.

NUTRITIONAL EDUCATION

Each week we discuss a new nutritional topic such as proteins, good and bad fats, water and even where to buy healthy foods that you can’t always find in your regular grocery store. Bernice also posts recipes and additional workouts to the powerstroller.ca website each week as well.

NEW SESSIONS STARTING SOON

If you’ve recently had a baby, or you’re just looking for a new fitness program for the summer that is child friendly, you can start out fresh with all the other moms in the next upcoming session starting the week of May 27 at various locations around London, St. Thomas and Stratford.

CITY MOM DISCOUNT CODE

BONUS: All City Mom readers that sign up for the upcoming 8-week session will receive a 15% discount!

Until next week,

Village Mom

LittleEcoFootprint Box

There’s been a lot of buzz recently about LittleEcoFootprint and for good reason. Everyone (including me) seems really excited about the opportunity to have nontoxic, Eco-friendly items for mom and baby delivered right to their door.

The feedback I’m receiving shows a common theme that parents across the country like the idea of having the “work” done for them. Many of us want to make the move to implementing more environmentally friendly items into our homes but we don’t know where to begin.

Many like the idea of being able to test out the products before deciding if they are right for their family. And others love the fact that LittleEcoFootprint contributes to the chemical-free regimen they already have going on at home.

SAVE 20% OFF YOUR FIRST MONTH

For whatever reason you’re excited about LittleEcoFootprint, you’re not alone. And here is one more reason to add to your list:

BECOME A FOUNDING MEMBER

And there’s one more reason (like you needed another) to join now; when you become a member before the launch, you will automatically become a founding member.

What does that mean?

Well, as a founding member, you will receive special gifts and rewards throughout your subscription with LittleEcoFootprint.

SNEAK PEAK

Each month’s delivery is tailored to the season and the age of your child but the rest is a surprise. Here are a few hints about what to expect in LittleEcoFootprint’s first ever delivery.

Join the FINISH Revolution {#FINISHRevolution}

 

 

I’m really excited to share the news that I’ve joined the FINISH Revolution! If you’re not sure what that means then here is the gist…

Quite simply put, joining the FINISH Revolution means putting an end to rinsing your dishes before they go in to the dishwasher.  FINISH® is continuously innovating and testing their products to ensure excellent results every time. And FINISH® is the number one recommended brand by dishwasher brands.

What I’m most excited about by joining the FINISH Revolution is surprising my husband. You see I’ve always assumed that if you own a dishwasher, it’ll do the work for you. It just doesn’t make sense to me that you should have to wash your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Doesn’t that just say “time waster”?

So I don’t do it. I put them in as is and I hope for the best. Time and time again they come out unclean. This has become a bone of contention between me and my husband.  He argues that dishes need to be rinsed for all types of dishwashers, except for maybe restaurant grade varieties. Call it stubbornness on my part but I can’t seem to get myself to rinse first. What’s the point of owning a dishwasher if it doesn’t do its job?

The Diamond Standard

So here I was spending all this time blaming the dishwasher for my dish cleaning woes but it turns out that it’s not the appliance but the product I’ve been using with the appliance. That’s why I’m so excited to switch to FINISH; to save time and energy and to prove my husband wrong!

FINISH® has a number of innovative products to compliment your hardworking dishwasher. Check out the FINISH Dishwashing website to learn more about all the products they offer and how they work as well as tips to keeping your dishwasher working its best.

  • FINISH® Quantum®
  • FINISH® All in 1 Powerball® Tabs
  • FINISH® All in 1 Gelpacs
  • FINISH® Gel
  • FINISH® Powder
  • FINISH® Jet Dry® Rinse Agent
  • FINISH® Jet Dry® Turbo Dry®
  • FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner

FINISH ON FACEBOOK – GET FREE SAMPLES

FINISH has just launched their new Facebook page and they are giving away 50,000 Free Quantum samples starting today (March 12), while supplies last, to Facebook users who “Like” the FINISH page. The sample will include 3 units of FINISH Quantum and a coupon for $2 off the retail price.

TOP CHEF CANADA – WIN A CATERED DINNER

And even more exciting is that FINISH is the sponsor of the popular Food Network TV show, Top Chef Canada! The new season starts tonight (March 12) and to celebrate this sponsorship, moms (and dads) can visit the FINISH Facebook page to enter to win a catered dinner for up to 6 by one of the Top Chef Canada competitors! Check out the Top Chef Canada tab on the site for more details!

And stay tuned for next month’s post where I’ll share the results of our FINISH Revolution and how my husband took the news! What are your dishwashing habits? Do you rinse before you put?

Happy cleaning!
