Blast From the Past - "Nalgene Fall Giveaway Festival Review and Giveaway" (ended)

On The Fly (OTF) bottle:
Multi-Drink bottle:

For our review, we received one Multi-drink bottle and one On The Fly Bottle.  The On The Fly bottle is slim and lightweight.  It is easy to drink with one hand (great for bikers!)  and can fit in most cup holders.  It also uses a push-button technology to open the cap which makes it less likely to slip off, leak, etc.  It actually took me a while to figure out how to open the cap so I would say it is more secure than most water bottles!

The Multi-drink had a wider mouth and was wider and weighed a tad more but it also came with an internal "straw" like drinking mechanism.  There is also a small screw off cap portion if sipping through the straw is not enough to quickly quench your thirst.  This is great for putting in ice or mixing drinks.  My kids loved this one and were arguing over who got to use it.

As part of the Fall Giveaway Festival event, I have a fun giveaway sponsored by Nalgene! One lucky winner will take home 2 of Nalgene's best selling bottles - this individual will win both the Multi-Drink Bottle and the On The Fly Bottle.  The retail value of the Multi-Drink is $14.99 and the retail value of the OTF is $12.99

I am new to scrapbooking and love it but one of the challenges I am finding is the time involved in creating layouts, cropping, cutting, pasting, embellishing, etc. One page can take several minutes to several hours. Digital scrapbooking minimizes the time invested in creating albums but still allows the user to create beautiful and unique layouts to easily preserve memories.

Look at some of the fun premium layout packages you can purchase to go with the SW starting at only .99 cents! With the current coupon code, you can apply the $10 towards your purchase. This is an excellent deal and a great savings opportunity!

I downloaded the SW today. It did take a few minutes to download and I had to restart my computer but after that I was ready to go!


Look at the very quick layout I did for Miss C! This can be done in 5 minutes or less. What a great way to share photos with family and friends! You can email and the recipient can print out or save to their hard drive.

This is SO, SO, SO easy! Even the least artistic person can do this - MyMemories makes it easy with pre-existing templates, layouts and backgrounds. You decorate easily by selecting, dragging and dropping the embellishments. Even my kids can use this!

If you have small children most likely you have limited time - Using MyMemories is a wonderful way to preserve the history of your family. Look at the quick layouts I created today!

9/11

I have not been posting much but that does not mean I have not been working.  I have been getting ready for the Fall Giveaway Festival.  As part of this I will be hosting 8 great giveaways in partnership with sponsors, other bloggers and Retail Me Not.  Come back Friday morning this week!  All giveaways are scheduled to go live between 9:00am and 9:05 am.

Although I accomplished a lot yesterday and today, it was a difficult weekend.   I was fully expecting for another terrorist attack - the fact that there has not been one makes me more nervous.  What's next?......   I really started experiencing problems with anxiety after 911.  Re-watching the footage brought the same feelings to the surface as those of when the attacks first occurred.   As hard as this was for me, I cannot imagine the agony of the family and friends who lost loved ones. 

To honor those lost I went through and read profiles on many of the victims.  You can find these posted on CNN - some contain more info than others but as a whole, this list shows the magnitude of the loss from the events of that day.  I wonder where many of these people would have been today.  I still will never understand why so many hate us so much yet so many want to live here. 

The most moving documentary is the film 9/11 by French filmakers Jules and Gedeon Naudet.  It was a beautiful but gritty film showing the horror and devastation of 911.  Working on a documentary project on a rookie firefighter assigned to Ladder 1 in NYC, they ended up being close to ground zero and were able to capture the events as they unfolded. 

Because they (Ladder 1) were out on an unrelated call, they were also out when the first plane flew overhead - somehow Jules was able to capture the 1st plane hitting the first twin tower.   Because Ladder 1 was also close (if not closest) to the twin towers, they ended up being the first responders. 

When I first heard about this film, I had thought it was just another documentary on 911 and really did not want to see it.  I felt that this was a network taking advantage of a tragedy to increase ratings.  Somehow I ended up watching it and I could not have been more wrong.  This was one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen - all the emotions, devastation, fear, love, pride, relief, etc are shown in real time.  You see both sides of humanity - the best and the worst.  Everything about this film is real and although it will be painful to watch again, it also demonstrates the tremendous power of hope and of love.

Short notice, but it is on TV tonight on CBS and if you did not watch it before, or even if you have, I recommend viewing it or recording it for later viewing.
