Works-For-Me-Wednesday-- Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...

I don't know about you but I do some of my best thinking under the blow dryer in the morning. As a result, there is always something I want to write down but I don't have any paper nearby. What I do have is 3 giant mirrors and a dry erase marker. Put them together and you have a wonderful place to write reminders, Scripture, love notes, phone messages, your to-do list or the next day's events. I even have a list of items on the mirror that were donated when I cleaned the closet because I didn't have any paper. That is one list I haven't lost yet!

It is difficult to miss a note when it is blocking your view as you put on makeup or brush your hair. It is even more difficult to lose the mirror and wonder where you put it. : )

I write notes on the kid's mirror as well, and they draw pictures. My sister Auntiebug uses the mirror backsplash in the kitchen to write last doses of medications or reminders. It also works on windows, glass shower doors, and possibly white appliances. It wipes off with a tissue and any residue left comes off with window cleaner- no big deal.

That's it for me, head over to Rocks In My Dryer for MORE great tips!

Bloggy Giveaways Carnival: Winter '08 Edition

I am giving away a Webkinz Pug. It is brand new with unused tags.

I didn't do a good job of listening to Doodlebug when I went shopping for her and got the wrong one. Unfortunately for me, fortunately for you, I could not return it. I bought it on Saturday, went to return it unopened with the receipt on Sunday and they said they didn't accept returns on Webkinz. I wasn't told that when I checked out nor was it posted in the store. Where it was posted, was the bottom of my receipt which you get AFTER you purchase. Make sense to you? Let's just say, sale or no sale, I will not be shopping at Libby Lu's any more.

Anyway, enough ranting. Here is a picture of the little guy. He is trying to look menacing but it isn't working.

This giveaway is open to ANYONE. Leave a comment and consider yourself entered in the giveaway. If you are like me, you'll want him for yourself.

One entry per person. Multiple entries will be deleted. Please leave a contact email if you do not have a blog or your profile is not open to the public. One winner will be selected on Sunday, February 3rd. Comments will close at Midnight February 1st. I'll post the winner here and contact you via email. If the winner doesn't respond within 3 days, a new winner will be selected. Good Luck!

***Edited *** Comments accepted until Midnight Saturday Feb. 2nd***
