It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Yule!

Good evening, Ya'll! I know it's been a while, but we've been busy busy over here, what with me finishing up the fall semester and crocheting my lil heart out, plus Kriztofer-Aiden in school and out of school on account of him being a sick, cranky toddler, and the hubby doing tattoos on and off, on top of looking for a 9-5 job, so I haven't had much time to be on here, and I apologize to you all for that! Good news is I have almost 4 weeks off until Spring semester starts, so I will be making appearances on here much more often! 

The crochet business has been a little slow, but I have managed to produce a decent amount of inventory for the Winter Fest at my mom's church this Saturday, December 15, and if you live near Fort Pierce, Florida, I suggest coming on down, they will be having a bunch of stuff for the kids to do, as well as the adults! Also, there is a giveaway going down on the Facebook page, it ends December 15, so get your entries in now over at The Pagan Mommy!!

Click the Link above for the giveaway!

My biggest project as of late! A Baby Blanket!

On another note, Yule is coming up fast, we have our tree up and decorated, and we have certainly decked the halls, and walls, inside and out! This being one of my favorite holidays, I love to go all out when it comes to gifts and decorations, we love doing homemade gifts, as well as tricky ones, we do things like double wrap the presents, or if a gift has multiple parts, we hide the parts around the tree or around the house, and we make a game of it, just to make the tradition a little more fun and intriguing! The alter is also decorated for the holiday with my fir branches and my red altar cloth! 

Kriztofer decorating the tree for the 1st time!

Yuletide Blessings to all this magickal season!

Our tree and fireplace look so perfect together!!

Our beautiful tree!

If I haven't made it apparent enough, I love December!!! On top of Yule, it's my Birthday, and well as many other events, December is certainly a busy and fun filled month for us, and is always the greatest end to the year! Well, that's all I have to tell you for now, be on the lookout for many other posts from me in the coming weeks, there might be a giveaway coming up soon! *hint hint*

As always, keep it magickal, and Blessed Be!! )o(

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins

I had the opportunity to test the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins thanks to Goody and Influenster in the Beauty Blogger VoxBox! These little magic pieces of metal are the most amazing hair styling products ever created! When I first saw them, I thought to myself that there was no way that these little spiral pins will be able to hold my hair up because it is so long (waist length).

As you can see, I was wrong. The Spin Pins held my hair up seamlessly, and you can't even see them! I gave them the ultimate test, first by shaking my head, they didn't fall out, and my hair didn't fall, they passed test 1 with flying colors! Second test, I kept them in the pigtails for the rest of the day, I went out and ran errands, cleaned the house, ran around with my son, ya know, daily stuff. I forgot the spin pins were in my hair, until I laid down to go to bed and realized my hair was still up, and even more amazing, still intact. Not one strand of hair had came loose and best of all, my hair looked like it hadn't been touched. Needless to say, these little pins have become my favorite hair styling product, and they are used on a daily basis! Thank you so much Influenster and Goody!

Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Cream

I was given the chance to test out Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Anti-Frizz Cream, thanks to Not Your Mother's and Influenster in the Beauty Blogger VoxBox! This cream first off has the most amazing coconut scent, thanks to the coconut oil in the cream. The smell is the first thing that attracted me to the cream, and because of how frizzy my hair is, I especially was hesitant to believe that this cream is truly anti-frizz.

As you can see in the picture above, I only applied the cream to the top of my hair because my hair was already pulled up, but it worked great! The back of the bottle suggested to put the cream in when your hair is damp, but even with dry hair the cream worked wonders. My hair was very soft, smooth, and shiny, and I went outside in the Florida heat to test the cream out against the humidity, and when I came back home after being out almost all day, I came home, and my hair was still intact, with no flyaways! I can definitely see myself purchasing this hair product indefinitely. Thank you Not Your Mother's and Influenster for introducing me to my new favorite hair product!

Bath and Body Works Cider Lane Fall Mini Candle

     I had the pleasure of testing out a Bath and Body Works mini fall candle, Cider Lane, thanks to Bath and Body Works, and Influenster's Beauty Blogger VoxBox! I at first didn't expect for such a small candle to have such a strong scent, but I knew I was wrong when I opened the VoxBox and the smell of pumpkin goodness hit my nose! This little candle is amazing! The smell was a mixture of pumpkin, cinnamon, and fresh cider, and it was extremely strong! I placed the candle in my living room because that's where most of the family spends their time, and I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the scent.

   Within minutes of me lighting the candle, the scent started filling the room, and everyone that walked into the living room questioned where the smell was coming from. My hubby asked who was cooking pumpkin pie, and when I told him it was the candle that was letting off the scent, even he was surprised, and he enjoyed the scent very much, and he isn't one for candles at all. After about 15 minutes, the scent not only filled the living room, but it traveled down the hallway and into the dining room as well.
   Needless to say, I wasn't able to take advantage of the coupon that I received with the candle, but I will certainly be purchasing this scent again, it has become my new signature fall scent for my home. Thank you Influenster and Bath and Body Works for allowing me to test such an amazing product!

Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox 2012

I am so excited to share with you all my experience with my second VoxBox from Influenster, The Beauty Blogger VoxBox! I had a ton of amazing goodies, and even though I couldn't eat any of it (shucks) I still had a blast trying everything out! So here is the breakdown of everything I received!

The first picture of my eyes is a picture of the NYC New York Color All in One Eye shadow palette! The palette comes with 3 different colors, a primer, and an illuminator. I have always wanted to get the smoky eye look, and with this palette, I can do it! In the picture below I have used the illuminator on the black eye shadow on my brow bone, and it completely changed the shade and added sparkle, which I LOVE!
NYC New York Color Eyeshadow. I was finally able to achieve the smoky look on  my eyes that I've always wanted!
 The next product, pictured below was the Bath and Body Works fall candle, Cider Lane, which I was most excited about because I love candles! The scent was amazing, and man does that little candle pack a punch! Within minutes of me lighting the little wonder, the entire living room was filled with an amazing pumpkin cinnamon scent, and it lingered into the hallway and dining room as well. And after having it lit for a couple hours a day for 3 consecutive days, there is still enough left to light for another few hours!
My Bath and Body Works Fall Cider Lane Candle!

The next product that I tested was Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Anti-Frizz Hair Cream! First off, the smell is amazing! The coconut oil definitely is made apparent as soon as you open the bottle, and since you use the cream while your hair is damp, it doesn't require more than maybe a quarter sized amount, and that's saying a lot for my hair considering it's down to my waist! Best of all, my hair is now Frizz Free! Not even the humidity of Florida has been able to cause flyaways like I used to deal with on a daily basis. Overall, this product is a lifesaver if you have frizzy hair!
No more frizzy hair for me!

Now for another amazing product, that worked well with the Smooth Moves cream, were the Goody Spin Pins! These little metal spirals of hairdo goodness have been a godsend for me! As you can see in the next two pictures below, I am able to do a variety of things with these little guys, and you can't even tell they are in my hair! I was hesitant at first to believe that such small items could hold up my hair which as I said before, is down to my waist, but when the spin pins were in place, I gave my head a shake, and to my surprise, my hair didn't fall! I wore my hair in the pigtails for the rest of the day, and when I went to bed that night, I forgot they were even in my hair, and needless to say, not only did they hold my hair up all day, but nary a stray of hair was misplaced!
Goody Spin Pin Style #1

Goody Spin Pin Style #2
The last item in my VoxBox were the Kiss artificial lashes, which are not pictured, unfortunately didn't work out for me. I followed the directions, and I was super excited to try them because the last time I tried artificial lashes, they didn't stick at all. These seemed easy enough, but I just couldn't keep my eyes still enough to apply them, and when I started to get the first one on it was too high, and just looked odd. I will try them again one day because I am not a quitter, and I really would enjoy the look of fuller lashes, but this time just wasn't my shot.

Overall all of the products I received from Influenster and the above brands were amazing, and I had such a fun time playing dress up with my new products! Thank you to Influenster, Bath and Body Works, Kiss, Not Your Mother's, and Goody, for an amazing experience with the Beauty Blogger VoxBox!

On the Verge of Change

Edible finger paints I made for Kriztofer-Aiden, my 2 yr old son!
So much as been happening lately, I don't even know where to start! 

Krochet Me Krazy is starting to see more customers, but unfortunately not making enough revenue yet :( Here are some of the most recent creations:
Two Slytherin Bracelets I made for a customer in Schenectady, NY! I didn't have gray or silver, so I made it black and green with a silver S.

Griffindor headband with buttons

Purple and white muti-colored hat for a customer in Buffalo, NY!

Other angle of the Griffindor headband with buttons!

The Pagan Mommy on Facebook has almost 500 likes, which is AWESOME, and we have opened up a Facebook store for Krochet Me Krazy, so hopefully that will pick up soon!

The full "blue" moon was AH-MAZING! We performed 4 different rituals that included our Full Moon Ritual, a Blue Moon Ritual, A Wishing Well Spell and a Moon-Charming spell for a lucky talisman. We went to the beach for the ritual and it was so beautiful! The best part besides the ritual itself, was when a group of people were on the beach watching us prepare for the ritual and they called the cops on us. The officer came out and asked us what we were doing, and when we told him we were performing our full moon ritual, he said "oh, you're witches! Enjoy the full moon!" And as he was leaving, he made the gawking group of people leave the beach. That was just a sign to us, letting us know that the night was going to be awesome, and it totally was! Minus not being able to keep the candles lit because of the wind, the ritual itself was so refreshing and renewing, I knew the Blue Moon was going to bring many new and fulfilling things to our lives! So as a closing we thanked the Moon Goddess, The Almighty Goddess and God from above, and enjoyed our Blue Moon feasting on the beach! Needless to say, after everything that night, life has never felt so uplifting!

View of the Blue Full Moon! I'm still amazed by the way the clouds formed!
Aside from all of this, little things have been happening here and there, and hopefully things will start revealing themselves, and I will be able to share them all with you. In the meantime, Blessed Be, and as always, Keep It Magickal!! )o(

Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies Test and Review

Thanks to Influenster and Quaker, I was given an awesome opportunity to review and test a complimentary sample of Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies! Before I give my review of the product, here is some information on these delicious treats:

Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies

Enjoy chewy, soft-baked cookies in a family-favorite flavor! With wholesome Quaker Oats and delicious raisins, you’ll never remember they came from our kitchen instead of yours.

-Made with Whole Grain Quaker Oats
-Individually packaged
-Provides a good source of fiber
-Contains 6 grams of total fat per serving

 Where to Buy
You can find Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies at most major retailers.
Suggested retail price: $2.69 for a box of 6 cookies

My Thoughts on Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies:

When I first opened the coveted Influenster Mom VoxBox, I was super excited to find out what I received. Among the many items was a Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie. I was even more excited when I saw this because my favorite cookie is in fact, oatmeal raisin! So when I opened the back with this delicious treasure inside, my son immediately snatched the cookie away from me and broke it into pieces before devouring the majority of it.

I was able to get about a quarter of the cookie that Kriztofer hadn't yet destroyed and let me tell you, this cookie is now my new favorite. It's extremely soft and crumbly, the oats and raisins are not abundant, but not scarce. It is simply delicious and nutritious, and doesn't taste like it belongs in the category as a healthy treat, but it is very healthy. Needless to say, my next trip to the store will include these delicious little treats! Thank you to Influenster and Quaker for the opportunity to try this delectable snack!

Pagan Blessed

  I thank the Goddess every day for blessing me with such a smart, amazing child. Kriztofer-Aiden has been a blessing since he was born, he was a miracle baby that we thought we would never be able to bring home. After my first miscarriage in 2006, and numerous testing and dr appointments, I was told I probably couldn't have kids. In 2009 I found out I was pregnant with Kriztofer, and considering I was on The Pill, made him more of a miracle baby. My thoughts were that perhaps the pill put the hormones in my body that I previously lacked, the reason why it was so hard for me to get pregnant in the first place. I had an almost perfect pregnancy minus the three months of morning sickness, and had no other issues throughout the pregnancy. When I went into labor on May 9 (Mother's Day 2010), I knew it was going to be his birthday because I looked at my phone, which said 12:00 midnight, and I said "Happy Birthday Kriztofer" then fell asleep. An hour and a half later we were leaving to the hospital because I woke up to go to the bathroom, and for the first time in 9 months, I was bleeding. So we rushed to the hospital and I was sent straight up to L&D to be put on monitors and be examined. To make a long story shorter, I was in labor for about 12 hours, and when I was finally in active labor they had to induce because I was dilating past 6 cm for over 4 hours. Then I was told I had to have an emergency C-Section because my blood pressure spiked, I developed a 104 fever and the baby's heart rate was rapidly dropping, from a healthy 150-162 to under 40 BPM. After pushing for what seemed like forever the midwife was ready to give up and go to the OR when my wonderful OB/GYN pushed her out of the way and said "we are getting this baby out right now!" After three pushes with Dr. King and a bilateral episiotomy, little Kriztofer-Aiden was finally born....Stillborn....He wasn't breathing after I finally pushed him out, they set him on my tummy for me to see him for a couple seconds then they rushed him to the Incubator bed and started working on him. Finally a weak heart beat, then crying...Our baby was alive!

 He was kept in the NICU for observation, the longest week of our lives. Needless to say, two years later, Kriztofer is healthy and thriving, the little terror that he is ^_^ He's an amazing child, wise beyond his mere two years of life, but I wouldn't have him any other way. He truly is our little miracle baby, and our little blessing from the Goddess.

Anyways, I just thought I would share with you all how our little blessing came to be!
As always, Keep it Magickal, and remember, every moment you get with your children is magickal, and so are they!

Tommee Tippee Explora easiflow Sippy Cup Review and Giveaway!

I'm super excited to finally be announcing my first giveaway, and with one of my favorite baby product companies, Tommee Tippee! Since my son was born, aside from nursing, all he knew was Tommee Tippee. He started with the Closer to Nature bottles, which when he had to be put on special formula we used the oh-so-convenient formula holders that would fit right into the bottles for on the go ease. When he was bottle fed we used the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Milk Feeding Bib, and as he got older he transitioned to the Explora Trainer Cups, and onto the Sippy Cups. Needless to say. Kriztofer is a Tommee Tippee baby through and through!

Here is a little information about the Explora easiflow Sippy Cup Set:
  • You Get 2 11 fl oz/325 ml cups
  • They are Stage 2 cups, meaning your baby can start on them at 7-9 mos
  • They have Advanced-flo technology for easy drinking
  • Unique soft-flex spout protects baby's gums
  • Comes with an attached Hygeine Cap so you can cover the spout when not in use
  • The cups are Truly non-spill and leak proof
  • Most importantly, they are BPA Free
Some Information about The Clever Bit:

Unlike other valve systems, our active sensor valve is designed by a physicist to be both so sensitive that liquid flows on demand, yet truly spill and leak proof.

About my experience:

The first day getting the cups in the mail, I think I was more excited than Kriztofer was, but he was even more excited when I showed him the cups with the little robot and truck pictures! After I finally was able to get them from him and take the cups out of the package, they were very easy to clean: I unscrewed the cap and was able to use the bottle cleaner for the cup itself, then I removed the Clever Bit, which is a white plastic piece attached to the cap to keep liquids from spilling out of the top. I rubber that is attached to the bit was easily removed to clean, and goes back on just as easily, and I was able to clean the inside of the mouthpiece with a bottle nipple cleaner.

The mouthpiece is a very soft rubber, and I can safely say is Kriztofer's favorite part of the cup because the entire first he had it, he was doing nothing but chewing on the mouthpiece, and I can tell he was very comfortable with it. I personally appreciate the rubber mouthpiece on this cup because his last sippy cup had a hard plastic piece, and I can tell he didn't enjoy it half as much as he enjoyed the Tommee Tippee cup!
The cup itself has plastic grips covered in a thin rubber for easy gripping, which is important when you have a son like mine who goes everywhere with his cup, and now I don't have to worry about it slipping out of his hands when we're out, or falling out of the cup holder, thanks to the rubber grip on the bottom of the cup as well.

My favorite part about this cup is that it TRULY is Spill and Leak proof, TRULY! I filled the cup with water and tipped it over, full, and not one drop came out of the sides or the mouthpiece. The other thing that helped was the hygeine cap, which my son knew immediately what it was for, and every time he was done drinking, he would put it over the mouthpiece and set the cup down.

All in all, I had a wonderful experience with the Tommee Tippe Explora easiflow Sippy Cups, and I know my son will enjoy them until we get him his Tommee Tippee Truly Spill Proof Water Bottle!
