$1 Coupon for New Post-It Full Adhesive

I am a sticky-note kind of girl, but I hate the way that you can lose them if the bottom half gets pulled on.  Well, they figured out how to solve that problem with the new full adhesive post-it notes.  They still remove as cleanly and easily as the old ones when you want to take them off, they just stay put better when you want to keep them on.  You can try them out with this $1.00 coupon.

Fotolia Review and Giveaway!

There is no dispute, blog posts just look better with pictures.  Wanting to add visual appeal to their posts, many bloggers have turned to the internet to search out pictures that they just cannot take themselves.  So where do you get your pictures from?

With the low price of stock photos and the increased legal action on copyright infringement, why take the chance of grabbing random images online? It is much safer to use a stock photo house.

Fotolia is one of the top stock photo houses in the world and offers royalty free images, HD video, and lots more. You can purchase items individually for a low cost starting as low as 14 cents per image, or there are subscription options which give you unlimited access to the 13,716,167 images, vectors and HD videos that are available at Fotolia.

I was provided with a free subscription to check out all they have to offer, and I was really impressed.  I will be hosting a getting organized event in August with this blog and my other blog Homeschool Parent, so I did a search for organizing - here is a partial screen shot of what my search looked like:

You can see there were over 7,000 files available for me to choose from!

Here is one of the pictures I will be using in an upcoming blog post.  I love it and there is no way that I could have taken a picture like this myself.

Fotolia is offering TWO of my readers the opportunity to check out their services for 14 days for free!  Here's how to enter:

Mandatory Entry:  Must be completed in order to enter. Follow my blog and post a comment below answering the following question: What image would you search for using Fotolia?

Paying it Forward - Cut, Clip, Save - a great site for couponers!


Holly over at A Life-Size Catholic hosts a blog event called Pay It Forward, where you highlight a particular blog or blogger that you love.  I am participating in the event on my other blog, and I decided I just had to particpate with this blog as well so that I could give a shout out to one of my Twitter friends who I can't wait to meet in person at BlogHer! 

So... without further ado, meet Amber Flores.

If she looks familiar, it may be because you have seen her on the show Extreme Couponing.  Yes folks, she is the real deal on Extreme Couponing.  She has a blog called Cut, Clip, and Save where she gives helpful tips and advice on couponing for the very beginning coupon user to the Extreme couponing veteran.  If you are a coupon user like me, you will definitely want to subscribe or follow her blog.

Reading - A Stolen Life - A Memoir Jaycee Dugard

June 10th 1991 began at first like just any other day.  I woke up, ate breakfast, and headed out the door to walk to the bus stop.  Luckily, I made it to school and arrived safely home that afternoon.  Unfortunately, another little girl across town was not able to say the same thing.  Her name was Jaycee Lee Duggard, and she was kidnapped as she attempted to walk to her own school bus that morning.  She tells her story in A Stolen Life. 

I remmber the first time I heard what had happened to her.  I was almost finished with my Sophmore year at South Tahoe High School.  Like Jaycee who was excited about an upcoming field trip to a water park, I was also looking forward to summer vacation.  My daydreams of hanging out on the shores of Lake Tahoe with my friends were interrupted when the principal came over the loud speaker to inform us that a 5th grader had been abducted by a man and a woman on her way to the bus stop.  They did not know where she was, or if they might strike again.  We were given instructions to not walk home alone that afternoon.

I followed instructions and had one of my best friends, Michelle ride home from school with me that afternoon.  That evening the story was on all of the news channels.  We heard her name for the first time - she was Jaycee Lee Duggard, and she was 11 years old.  She lived with her mom, step-father (who was a suspect up until the day she was found), and her half-sister.  Our small town was in a state of shock.  Lake Tahoe was not the type of place where people were afraid of one another.  Most people didn't even lock their doors, and if they did, everyone knew that they had a key hidden under a fake rock.  But after that day, everything changed.  People become a little less trusting, parents began walking their children to the bus stops every day, not just the first day of school.  And everywhere you turned you saw Jaycee's face, on a missing poster, and you just prayed that someday she would make it home alive.  You hoped that all of those pink ribbons would make a difference, that somehow her kidnappers would return her to her family.

After so many years had gone by, I think most people began to think that maybe the unspeakable had happened, maybe she wasn't alive.  I still remember the shock, relief, and sadness (for all that she had endured) I felt when one of my best friends texted me on August 27, 2009 at 5:30 in the morning.  He had been there with me in Chemistry class when we had heard she was kidnapped, and it was he who sent me the news that Jaycee was alive.  His text said "They found Jaycee Lee - alive! She walked into a Bay Area police station."  I know that everyone who ever lived in Tahoe during those years felt the same way I did - a mixture of relief that she was alive and safe, but also so sad for all that she must have endured.  Afterall, she had been found along with the two daughters she had given birth to while in captivity, daughters of her captor.

I knew that Jaycee had undergone terrible things, but that did not prepare me to read what those things were.  I could not imagine a child having to endure what she did.  As I read her story, I cried through her suffering, but also smiled because even throughout the time she was being held, she never lost her hope, her courage, or her ability to love her own daughters as much as her mother had loved her. I finished reading with the feeling that she would be ok - she is a survivor.
