Your Zone - cool room at cool card giveaway!

Mom knows it all, one of the Wal-mart More than Eleven Moms (how can I get into that group?), is hosting a fabulous giveaway...wait for it...

...A $500 gift card from Wal-mart!

I thought there had to be some gimmick like agreeing to work for Wal-mart for free or something ludicrous like that. But no, it's a simple giveaway like most blogs. All you have to do is check out the line of fantastic furniture, bedding and accessories called "Your Zone" and leave a comment about back at Mom knows it all about what two things you'd buy from Your Zone. It's that simple.

I like simple. And Your Zone makes it simple to decorate your children's rooms in a fashion forward way without breaking the bank. Both my kids need a redesign. Since we've moved to South Carolina my four year old girl's mattress is on the floor and my 8 year old's dresser got damaged in the move. So you can imagine they each need some TLC.

Here's my son jumping on his bed. As you can see in the background it's pretty dull. Your Zone would definitely brighten it up and make it more of a boy's room!

Here's to possibilities! Go on over to Mom knows it all get your own piece of possibility!

Name Your Tune: Personalized Music Made to Order Giveaway!

We are jammin' at our house!

Miss Anna Mae, our four year old star in the making, can't believe that there are songs out there just made for her. She is beside herself with pride and joy. All this exuberance is the result of receiving the "Name Your Tune" personalized CD full of music that babies, toddlers and kids love to hear and sing. They love this CD so much because there are 14 songs that incorporate their name into each song. I was worried it was going to be either really cheesy or the songs would have a strange robotic quality but Name Your Tune is all about great quality and uber cuteness. Our eight year old son, who I thought would be too old to appreciate it, was disappointed there wasn't a CD for him with his name as part of the music.

When you order the CD, Name Your Tune has you choose a title for the CD. We've been into the lives of fairies in our little home lately so I thought it would be really fun for this music to be made by a music fairy. So the title was: "Magical Music for Anna Mae made by your music fairy, Adalira". When the CD came in the mail and I read the title to our little fairy, her eyes lit up and she insisted we play it right then and there. Once the music started she was sold. She began talking about how lucky she was to have a fairy that would make music just for her! I've heard her many times during nap time and at bed time singing these songs to herself. Nothing is more precious than that.

The founders of Name Your Tune possible are have professional experience with education and music. This combination is the perfect storm for learning and development. They also are invested in giving back to their community which, as a licensed clinical social worker, always seals the deal with me. Co-Founder Eric Alper helped to establish a Fun fest, called "Hear Here" that raises money to assist hearing impaired kids get hearing aids. Name Your Tune proudly donates a portion from their CD sales to support Hear Here.

The cost of the CD is $20 which may seem a little pricey but if you take into account what you'd spend on a gift, I think, hits the mark. Plus, it's a personalized gift which is difficult to find at that price level. All in all, it's a fabulously fun way to interact with you child even when the CD isn't playing. We've found ourselves singing them to Anna and Gavin (switching names out) when we feel like bursting into song...uh, which is kinda frequently around our house. you want one? Are you curious? Well, Name that Tune has generously offered to provide one reader their own personalized copy of the Name Your Tune CD. All you have to do is go to their website and come back leaving a comment about their products that I haven't mentioned in this post. They've got some great personalized products for sale! So go on! Take a look, you won't be disappointed.
