Personal Creations - My Review

Valentine's Day has come and gone, but every year the holiday reminds me to give thanks for those that are important in my life.  It seems like holidays that celebrate those we love and love itself demand our attention (and subsequent gift giving) each spring. Birthdays always require thought and attention, and then there is Mother's Day and Father's Day in May and June.  Before we know it, summer is upon us and wedding season is in full swing.  I don't know about you, but I struggle to find great gifts for those that I love.

My mom always is a tough one for me when it comes to gifts.  She is hard to shop for because she is at that stage of her life where if she wants something, she just buys it!  One thing that she does love though is being "Oma" to her grandchildren.  We have named our grandmas "Oma," "Nana," and simply "Grandma."  The kids never get confused as to which person we are talking about.  All of the grandmas love gifts that celebrate their grandma-hood, and we are constantly looking for a gift to fit that mold.  Gardens are something that they all tend, so when I found these Garden Fairy Stakes on the Personal Creations website I was super excited.  They are perfect for the garden, all metal so they can handle the weather, and they each come with a metal stake so they can be placed in the perfect spot.  I bought this set of 2 for $29.99 and two grandma birthdays were covered.  I love original gifts that can be personalized!

I love to celebrate the love I have with my husband whom I married in 1996.  We moved into a new home last fall, and I have had a spot above our bathtub that I wanted to decorate with something special.  I found this cool Faith Hope Love Wedding Slate on the Personal Creations website, and I knew my search was over.  The plaque measures 8"L by 8"W and comes with a leather cord to hang it with.  While I bought it just because, I think it would make a great wedding gift.  At $24.99 this gift would be not only unique, but very reasonable!

There are so many cool things to purchase and personalize on this website.  The options are endless, and their are gifts that would be perfect for many different gift-giving occasions.  I found some Personal Creations Website Coupons that would make your purchase even more awesome so check those out.  Have fun and make sure to bookmark this site for future purchases.  I know you will use it!  Here are some other great examples of what is sold on the Personal Creations website!

I was offered a choice of products at Personal Creations in return for my unbiased review.  I found it difficult to narrow down what I received, and I would freely choose Personal Creations as a site to purchase fun gifts to send for any occasion.  Opinions in this post are my own, and I will only recommend products and services that I believe are worth sharing.  Thanks for reading and make sure to share the best gifts with those that you love!

Morning Star Farms Veggie Burgers

I have been involved with BzzAgent for quite some time now.  I have gotten to test out some pretty exciting products, so I love getting emails asking me to join in on testing something new.  There are some programs I have turned down because I don't feel they are a good fit for me.  The most recent program I was invited to required a little bit of thought.  I almost turned this one down, but I am SUPER happy that I didn't.

I tried veggie burgers many years back.  I found them to be dry and tasteless.  No amount of cheese and toppings could made them palatable.  Since BzzAgent was going to allow me to test the veggie burgers out with no cost to myself, I decided to give them another try.  All that was asked of me was to give my honest opinion.  No problem there - I was ready to lay it all out there.  When I went to the store, I was surprised at the selection.  I went with the Tomato and Basic Pizza Morning Star Farms Veggie Burger, well because it did sound good.

You can cook these burgers in the microwave, so I zapped it for a couple of minutes, and noticed a heavenly aroma begin to fill my kitchen.  I paired the veggie burger with some mixed greens and salsa.  I was won over by the wonderful taste of this garden burger.  It wasn't dry and it had a great pizza-taste. I really am surprised at how good these taste.

At the beginning of the year, I made a conscious decision not to eat meat at my noon meal.  These veggie burgers are a great alternative.  I look forward to trying out all of the different varieties.  They are easy to find.  I bought mine at Walmart.
