Dreamdark Books Giveaway

One of my lucky readers will win both of the books Blackbringer and Silksinger that are part of the Dreamdark series by Laini Taylor thanks to Penguin Young Readers. These are science fiction/fantasy novels for the teen audience.

Here's more information about this book directly from Penguin:

When the ancient evil of the Blackbringer rises to unmake the world, only one determined faerie stands in its way. However, Magpie Windwitch, granddaughter of the West Wind, is not like other faeries. While her kind live in seclusion deep in the forests of Dreamdark, she's devoted her life to tracking down and recapturing devils escaped from their ancient bottles, just as her hero, the legendary Bellatrix, did 25,000 years ago. With her faithful gang of crows, she travels the world fighting where others would choose to flee. But when a devil escapes from a bottle sealed by the ancient Djinn King himself- the creator of the world- she may be in over her head. How can a single faerie, even with the help of her friends, hope to defeat the impenetrable darkness of the Blackbringer?


At a time when fantasy readers have an embarrassment of riches in choosing new worlds to fall in love with, this first novel by a fresh, original voice is sure to stand out.

Carolina Pad Product Review

Carolina Pad brings inspiration into your work space with their uplifting designs for office products. One of my lucky readers will win a Carolina Pad Office Set Collection with a value of $150 in this giveaway. I've been using Carolina Pad products for my home office, and want to highlight my favorite products and collections in this product review.

First Love: Hot Chocolate

























My first introduction to Carolina Pad products was the Hot Chocolate notebook that I picked-up at Target when I was looking for a fun notebook to use for my blog writing and notes. I was drawn to the design before I was even aware of the Carolina Pad products. Now I've been introduced to all the Carolina Pad collections and I've had fun spotting them at the stores I shop at. But Hot Chocolate is still my favorite!

My Fave: My Organizational Folder
The Organizational Folder is my favorite product that I've used. It's a durable 8-pocket notebook that has transformed my "pile 'o papers" on my desk into a beautiful Hot Chocolate Folder laying on my desk. At first glance you think it's just a spiral-bound notebook, but open it up and you will find organizational bliss. This is my favorite product because it's the most useful to my daily office tasks. I placed a sticky note on each folder labeling the category. I can easily sort the papers on my desk into 8 categories and love this pretty new organizational tool in my office.

Collection with a Cause: Kendall Kollection

















Jacqueline Savage McFee designed the Kendall Kollection in honor of her cousin Kendall who is fighting Leukemia. A portion of each sale goes to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I love the bright, cheerful colors in this collection, and what you can't see in the photo are sparkles that appear on products like the notebooks. But most of all I love the inspiration behind it and the cause this collection supports.

Product Reviews from Others
Read how Frugal Coupon Living uses her Carolina Pad products to stay organized and save money. I will be bringing you my own product review sometime before this giveaway comes to a close. I had so much fun browsing the collections at Carolina Pad and love the uplifting colors and designs. Find out why others are falling in love with Carolina Pad products.

Llama Llama & Ladybug Books Giveaway

One of my lucky readers will win both of these children's picture books from Penguin Young Readers.

The Llama Llama books are a favorite in our house. Something about the rhyming and the storyline my kids can relate to is completely engaging for them. They beg me to read it to them every night! This giveaway is for the children's book Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney. I'll be giving this delightful book to one of my lucky readers.

Here's more information about this book directly from Penguin:

Strange new teacher.
Strange new toys.
Lots of kids and lots of noise!

What would Llama like to do?
Llama Llama feels so new . . .

It’s Llama Llama’s first day of preschool! And Llama Llama’s mama makes sure he’s ready. They meet the teachers. See the other children. Look at all the books and games. But then it’s time for Mama to leave. And suddenly Llama Llama isn’t so excited anymore. Will Mama Llama come back?

Of course she will. But before she does, the other children show Llama Llama how much fun school can be!

Hooray for children's books because they are fun for the whole family to read! Penguin Young Readers is also giving away the children's book Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy by David Soman and Jacky Davis. I'll be giving this "bee"utiful book to one of my lucky readers.

Here's more information about this book directly from Penguin:

At the playground, Lulu asks her friend Sam if he wants to play with her. Sam likes Diggers, while Lulu thinks Monkeys is the best game. Sam suggests playing under the castle, but Lulu knows that the top is the most fun. They just can’t agree! And then Lulu asks, “Have you ever played Ladybug Girl?”

As Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, Lulu and Sam save the playground from hairy monsters and big mean robots, and have their very own parade on the bouncy dinosaurs. They figure out that when they work together, they can create fun games that they both like to play.

Skype Giveaway

Skype is helping my family stay connected and it can help your family too! Skype is a full-service communications company that offers free and paid services. I am hosting a giveaway for three of my lucky readers to win a Skype Pack (over $100 value) which includes a headset and SkypeOut credit for calling landlines and cell phones.

Skype is FREE, Get Started Now!
Skype-to-Skype calls are free. When you make a call from your Skype account to another Skype account, that call is free! I'm impressed with how easy Skype is to set-up, they really put a lot of thought into their user interface and it's easy for anyone to use. It's really quite simple to get started, so I wrote out these steps to help you:

1. Equipment Needed: You need to have either a headset or microphone for your computer so that you can hear someone talking and be heard yourself! You don't have to have a camera, but if you do this allows you to use the free video calls.

2. Download Skype software for free

3. Start talking! You need to know someone's Skype ID in order to call them, but you can do a search for it.

Skype Offers Affordable Paid Services
You are not limited to the free Skype-to-Skype services, because Skype offers affordable paid services too. There are plans that offer "pay as you go" or monthly subscriptions. So you can pick what you need to make and receive all of your phonecalls. If you have any questions about the free vs. paid services please read "What's Free and What's Costs a Little".

Skype Connects My Family
I started using Skype after my friend gave me a webcamera for Christmas. Now we can keep in touch with my children's grandparents that we only see a few times a year. My kids love the interaction they get with the full-screen video and even like to tickle the screen. It's so fun for us (and for our family) to stay connected this way! And our calls to each other are free because we are both using Skype.

Skype For My Business
My blog is my business and it has grown so much! I planned on setting-up a business phone number and voicemail, but hadn't made any steps in executing that plan. Skype is now my business solution for my communication needs after trying out their Skype Unlimited World Subscription. I've got my voicemail set-up and will be purchasing an online number that anyone can call from any phone. Skype will help me stay in-touch with my readers and advertisers.

Want to enter this giveaway for a chance to win?
The email addresses that I collect for this giveaway will only be used for the purpose of contacting the winner, and will never be given to anyone. This giveaway will close Wednesday, June 3 at midnight (CST). I'll announce the first name of the winner in a new post the next day and contact the winner by email.

If a winner does not contact me within 48 hours by email, I will draw a new winner. This giveaway is only open to residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older. The winners will receive their Skype Pack by mail directly from Skype.

Just for fun, please leave a comment and tell us who you want to stay connected with by using Skype?

Thanks for entering and come back Wednesday, June 3 to find out who won.

Freebies 4 Mom Giveaway Disclosure: Skype sponsored this giveaway by providing three Skype Packs to give away.

Skype does not compensate me in any other way for this giveaway.
