CSN TABLE TOP EASEL REVIEW (and Le Creuset Baking Dish giveaway!)

 There is a wonderful online shoppers paradise out there. And it is called  It is comprised of over 250 specialized online stores that offer a huge variety of home goods including office furniture, bedding, lighting, stools, cookware, toys, baby furniture, and so much more. They have EVERYTHING!! 

 I recently won a KidKraft Table Top Easel for my son. This came from the All Children's Furniture store. I chose the espresso finish. But it also comes in a more natural finish as well. 
KidKraft Tabletop Easel in Espresso - 62020

 This easel is so cool. It has a dry erase board on one side and a chalk board on the other. I also has wood strips that hold paper in place too. So not only can my son use chalk and dry erase markers to create art, but he can also color with crayons, regular markers, and even do finger painting. It also comes with two paint cups (and there are two nifty spots for them on the easel) and an eraser.

 This easel is a great space saver. It folds for storage too. But, my favorite thing about it, is that it is really sturdy. It will last a long time in my house....and my son can be pretty rough on stuff. I love that it is not one of the taller free standing ones...that could easily tip over and fall. 

I also like the price. I  think that $44.95 is a great price for something like this. And I like that because it is can even last into your child's teen years. It would make for a great homework or chore list. You can purchase this easel right here.

And now for the exciting and fun GIVEAWAY!!

I was contacted by a CSN rep to offer my lovely readers a giveaway! I was able to peruse their millions (okay...hundreds!) of stores...and choose an item to offer you guys. I finally decided on this:

Le Creuset 9" Square Baking Dish with Bonus 5" Baking Dish in Caribbean - PG071523-17

 Le Creuset 9" Square Baking Dish. And even comes with a bonus 5" Baking Dish! The color is amazing...a really pretty shade of Caribbean blue. I love how bright it is...and I really think that it would go great in even the simplest of kitchens. It is microwave, oven, refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher safe! The retail value is $59.95 and right now it selling for $34.95 at CSN's store. So you can head there now and buy it (or something else)....and you can also win it here!!

   What is fixR?? Here is how it works: Homeowners submit remodeling projects. Contractors submit estimates for those jobs and try to "win" them. When a contractor "bids" on your project, fixR notifies other contractors so that they can adjust their bids to try and win the work.

Giveaway at Park-Avenue Princess


I posted the other day about a great giveaway going on over at Park-Avenue Princess.....and guess what? She has another great book up for a giveaway. And there will be 3, very lucky winners!! I am hoping to be one of them.

The book is Fallen, by Lauren Kate. I have heard so many good things about this book. I do not think that I have read a bad review yet. I probably won't either. I am entering this giveaway, and if you like to read, then you should too. If you are not a follower of the blog, become one, and that is your first entry into the giveaway. Of course, there are other ways to get extra entries as well.

  If you are not already a follower and want to follow and enter the giveaway...great! You can get 50 EXTRA points *entries* into the giveaway just by commenting like this:
  1st comment:  +1 for becoming a follower
  2nd comment: +50 for being referred by Rebecca Orr *bekki1820cb at gmail*

Than email me at bekki1820cb at gmail dot com (or comment on this post) and let me know that you posted a comment saying that you where referred by me for the giveaway. The reason I would like you to email me (or comment), is because I also get 50 EXTRA points *entries* for referring a new follower!!! So if I refer 3 people, each person gets an extra 50 points, and I get 150 extra! Also, if you refer friends, you get extra points, and so do they! How exciting is that!!!

You can enter the giveaway here:

 There is one catch, you MUST have a US address for the book to be sent to. If not, you can not win. I am pretty sure that if you live in Canada, but have a friend in the US that you accept the book on your behalf that is okay. But I would email Amy to find out for sure. So...good luck!

Giveaway at Park-Avenue Princess


Amy at Park-Avenue Princess is having several wonderful book giveaways. But the one I want to touch on is a book called The Lonely Hearts Club buy Elizabeth Eulberg. 

Here is a little bit about the book: *taken from the Park-Avenue Princess blog*

Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating, so she vows: No more. She’s had one too many bad dates, and has been hurt by one too many bad boys. It’s a personal choice…and soon everybody wants to know about it. It seems that Penny’s not the only girl who’s tired of the way girls change themselves (most of the time for the worse) in order to get their guys…or the way their guys don’t really care about them. Girls are soon thronging to The Lonely Hearts Club (named after Sgt. Pepper’s band), and Penny finds herself near legendary for her non-dating ways – which is too bad, since the leader of The Lonely Hearts Club has found a certain boy she can’t help but like…

How  good does this sound??? So GOOD!! I am really excited about this giveaway and am really hoping to win one of the THREE copies being given away!

You can learn more about the author, Elizabeth Eulberg here:
There are TWO MAJOR REQUIREMENTS to entering the giveaway: 
  1. You MUST have a US address to have the book sent to
  2. You MUST be a follower of the Park-Avenue Princess blog via google friend connect

That's it! Simple and easy...but there are also tons of other ways to gain extra entries as well. The giveaway ends 2/1/10 so you have time...but I would get those entries in as soon as possible!

You can enter the giveaway by clicking the following link:


There is a great LIVE GIVEAWAY going on right now over at Just for You and Me! The prize is for a Little Piggy's Cardboard Playhouse. These are really neat. It is 7 pieces of cardboard for the house and 2 more pieces for the mailbox and the window box.  This little house is white and can be decorated by your child...or even you, if you fancy yourself to be an "artist".
