Again I have found another great website for earning Paypal Money!

It's called

Almost everyday they will send a link to your email saying that you have a survey to take.

It consists of really easy questions and normally there isn't that many questions 5 to 10 or so. 

All it asks is like ie. What hobbies do you enjoy: Painting, Archery, horseback riding, speed reading ect. 
And you just click none, any or all. Whatever you enjoy.

Then time to time they might send you an extra survey that might be .14 and they might be fill in the blank or something.

I know .10 or .14 isn't much but take 5 seconds out of the day to do this along with the other websites I have shared you might have a good bit saved up for next Christmas!! That's what I am hoping for!

Habanero Popcorn from Southwest Specialty Food, INC.

My husband loves spicy foods. That's about all he eats so this year I found some awesome deals on amazon for some things to spice things up for the hubs for Christmas this year.

The store was Southwest specialty Food, inc. I bought it at the beginning of November just to make sure shipping had plenty of time to get here, but I nothing to worry about, my order was shipped fast after ordering. I live in North Carolina and this company is in Arizona.

Foremost, my husband was so excited to get this box of goodies that he can't wait to try. But having to work tomorrow he only wanted to try one product tonight. So he tried the Ass Kickin' Habanero Popcorn.

(By the way I made him give me a review for my post or else!! Hehe. But his opinion is an honest one!)

He said a that he would defiantly buy it again! It popped really good for his liking. He really like the buttery flavor along with the spice.

He also said that it wasn't as spicy as he would of hoped but he still really liked it. It reminded of him of when you have really freshly ground black pepper, maybe a bit hotter than that.

Overall he rated this product an 8 out of 10 on how satisfying it was.

Now Me on the other hand...
I also liked the pop and the buttery flavor with the heat. But honestly as a person that doesn't eat as much hot stuff as my husband. I actually thought it was hot. Tolerable but hot. Hehe. I really liked it too! I would so buy it again! We both really loved the smell of the popcorn also. Very nice aroma.

I actually would like to make spicy popcorn balls for a party favor with these. But you know I'm just crazy like that!

I would personally rate this product an 9.5 out of 10 of how satisfying it was.

Buy it Here on Amazon, or on their website, Southwest Specialty Food, Inc.

They have many products on both Amazon and their website! Go Check them out!

I have five other products my husband and I are going to review in the next couple weeks so stay tuned.

Coming up products:

Kick Ass Energy, Feel the Kick! (2 FL. Oz) (Buy On Amazon Here)

Crest 3D White Strips Review

I was lucky enough that I was able to get a box from Influenster again. This time it was for 3D White Strips!

I wasn't sure if I could use them because I have really sensitive teeth, but I still wanted to try them out really bad! So I talked my mom into trying them out with me!
We only tried them once, so far, but we are going to start to do them more often.

Influenster had sent me the Level 4 of the 3D White Strips. 
They were slightly awkward the first time ever putting them on, but it was ok. My mom and I just laughed at each other!

On the directions it said there were three types of whiteness. 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours. Being out first time trying them we decided to do them for 15 minutes. 

After one use I seen a slight difference which surprised me!

Having sensitive teeth I wont be doing them all the time, but I know if I have something important coming up I will defiantly being using these! 

Thank you Influenster for allowing me to try these for free my mom and I really liked them!

Easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

It's almost Christmas and I love making sweets during this time of year. So I was looking up different cookies because I have 9 dozen to make in a week but I ALWAYS get so antsy to make things up until I make them. Hehe

Well I had ran across this easy recipe from BubbleCrumb and thought I could give it a try. 

What You need

  • 1 Cup - Sugar
  • 1 Cup - Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg

In a bowl, ( I used my kitchenAid Mixer but you can do it by hand my lil man loves to help use it!) combine the sugar, peanut butter, and the egg.

Then spoon, (or roll as I did) teaspoon size balls, then use a fork for the traditional checkered top.

Bake in over at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Mine took a little longer about 14 minutes but I found out that different types of peanut butter varies it. 

Let cool on cooling rack and serve! They will be gone in a flash!

Thanks BubbleCrumb for your easy recipe!!

(Variation you could add semisweet chocolate chips to the mix!)

I halved the recipe and it made 12 of the larger cookies, and  25 small cookies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shopping Trip 11/18

In our little town of Mayberry we have only a few stores to shop from. We don't have a Kroger so to get my coupon fix I have to go to Lowes Foods for the best prices for my money. They double coupons so that's a plus in our little town.

We don't have much money to spend right now so I limit myself a certain amount until after the new year.

This week I had the Lowes Foods paper that comes out on Wednesday. I scoured the paper matching the best deals of the week with what coupons I had. I seen several but with a tight week this week I decided to only use two sets of coupons I had.

So today we headed to the store. I have a plan set to buy 4 boxes of Dixie Crystal sugar, and 10 boxes of Betty Crocker instant potatoes.

Lowes had the Dixie Crystal sugar 16oz for $1.15
I had four coupons for .55 off any one product *excluding the 2lb bags

They also had the Betty Crocker instant potatoes 10/10
I had five coupons of buy two products get $1.00 off

I love Lowes Foods because they double up to a .99 coupon so the .55 coupons were doubled to $1.10

So for 14 items that WAS going to cost me $26.36 I got at a price of $5.50!

Honestly I think for not having to stores the extreme couponers have, I think I did pretty good! :)

Thank you for reading!

*note: one box of brown sugar and one box of potatoes not shown because we gave them to Hubby's mom.

My Clay Charms for Christmas

   I'm pretty disappointed. I was really hoping to make some money to be able to buy my hubby a Christmas Present this year. And sadly I have worked so hard to no sell one. I know he doesn't care if I get him a gift. But still I would love to be able to say, "hey I bought that!" But alas. Thank you for all that have followed me though this. I have disconnected my Facebook page Gina's Random Craft's and Photography. I really don't know if I am going to re-open it or not.

If you need anything just comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you all,

Gina Taylor xoxo

Father's Day 2012

Father's Day isn't until June 17th. But Somehow I ALWAYS give Andrew's presents to him early!
I guess I'm always so anxious to get him something or he already knows what it is since I'm a SAHM.

Free Wrapping paper! My grandmother always gives me her newspaper after she uses it, coupons and comics and all!
 I had balloon ribbon left over from Graison's presents so I added that!

Hubby LOVES RedBull but its about $10.00 - $12.00 a four pack where we live so he doesn't get it very often. He doesn't like to get it really even though he loves it. I normally have to pressure him to get him something for his self.

Well I am a part of Klout. It's a website that counts your influences and influencers. And as a part of it brands give you perks for FREE if you qualify. I paid nothing for the RedBull Total Zero.

Andrew doesn't care what I paid for it!

   As our motto:
"I'd rather you got it for free or cheap, then pay full price!"

My Hubby and Baby boy!

Thanks for reading!!

Old Folks Home - The Whitest kid U'Know

Last night Hubby was flipping though Netflix and found a show I LOVE! The Whitest Kids U'know. Back when I was a teenager I used to watch them all the time on Fuse. Then Fuse took them off, (or changed the time when aired) and they went to IFC.

They can be pretty... interesting. I have to admit if your are too sensitive then you don't need to look them up.

Here is one episode song Hubby found for me. I hadn't seen this until last night, its so catchy! They do funny skits about history and songs.

Getting ready for Little G's Party!

We are soon going to have my son's party. I have been trying to get all the birthday stuff together. Planing a camping CARS party can be... fun? hehe.

Anyways I have been looking up on Pinterest different ways to wrap his presents. I dislike buying wrapping paper unless I get a really good deal on it. ie. After Christmas sale! So I decided to use comic strips and newspaper. That isn't too cheap is it? I mean we are going camping! We are just going to throw it in the fire anyway! 

Here is a photo of his presents from Mommy and Daddy.
I made the bows!

I don't know. Hubby says jokingly it looks like Christmas. (He Liked it though) But hey it's his 2nd birthday! Like he is really going to remember that detail. I doubt when he is 20 he is going to say. Momma did it ghetto style and it ruined me. teehee.

Also in this post I wanted to share the flags I made. My mother-in-law gave me a CARS Party crafts and this caught my eye.

Sorry the pictures were a bit sketchy I had to take quick photos because hubby and baby boy wanted to take a golf cart ride before dark.

I say this project only costed me .57 cents for the black acrylic paint.

I used:

Black Acrylic paint - .57
6 Kabob Skewers - Already had
Acrylic Paint Paper - Already had.
(You could use any kind I guess. I was going to use printer paper but couldn't find any at the time.)
One Sponge - Already had.
Hot Glue and Glue Gun - Already had
Tape - Already had
Stickers from the Pinata left over

Take your sponge cut it to the size cube you want for the checkered flag.
Get your Paper, sponge, and paint ready.
The book said to use a ruler and pencil to get exact squares. But most likely they are going to messed up in the end anyways so I just eyeballed it.
When I started dabbing it, it didn't look like the photo in the book. (they never do) the sponge left little white dots as you may can see from my photo. So if you want them completely black you will need to go back over it a time or two. I wanted it kinda "rustic" so I left it as it is.
Then let dry.

For the skewers they weren't as long as I wanted to for the bigger flags so I taped two together. After the flags dry I took and rolled the flag carefully around the skewer to my liking. Then I hot glued and rolled. Keep in mind that parts of the skewer are coming out both ends. I made it so I would have as long as possible handle.
After they dried I took and cut the shorter end flush with the flag. There was a little gap since it was Acrylic paint paper is stronger so I added more hot glue to the top.

Like I said before I had extra stickers from my Lightning McQueen Pinata so I just Elmer's glued them to them. But they look pretty good without the stickers.

I just did one side! You could do both if you wanted.

Any other questions just ask!

More to come!

Thank you for reading!

Lightning Mcqueen Pinata!

We are having my son a Cars birthday bash in June. We are heading to one of our favorite campgrounds Deer Run Campground. A few months back I was looking around for a Cars pinata. I looked and looked but couldn't find the perfect, or easiest to go by. But finally I found the best one ever! Hers was the one I had been looking for! Things I like to Make had the best Lightning Mcqueen pinata! Even though I didn't have everything that she called for I easily switched a few things. 

Here is her Tutorial on Her Lightning Mcqueen. She also has other things from her Party!

I would have taken photos as I made it but I knew if I had of I would have never got it done. I'm weird like that. hehe. Anyways...

I was lucky enough that as I was thinking of attempting to make a cars cake I found a man with all his stickers. I emailed him and he kindly emailed them all to me!

I left the top of the Kix box for the opening for the candy. Slightly cutting it so it was a smaller opening.
Sorry my husband had to get me in my jammies. I told him not to.

I really think the off brand Gatorade bottles made it wheels pop! Then adding the "Lightyear" Stickers to them made them look really good!


In all I think I did a pretty decent job!

I really didn't want to pay $20.00 for the ones at Walmart were all the little kids have torn off the stickers and punctured holes in them. Over all I paid maybe $4.00...maybe.

I used.
4 Off Brand Gatorade bottles
1 Kix Cereal box
1 Can flat black spray paint
1 Can of red sprat paint
1 Mac & Cheese Box
1 Cookout Chicken nugget Foam container
1 TP tube
1 piece of red Construction paper
1 roll of Party ribbon
Print Off Stickers
News paper & Flour
Fishing twine
1 pack of Crepe paper Rolls

I had most of it.

Thank you Things I like to Make (FB Page) for your wonderful tutorial! It really helped me alot!

Go check out her Pages! She has some awesome things!

Thanks for reading! If I have people ask me how I did it step by step I'll post but otherwise Things I like to Make has the best one!

I'll be posting some more later!

Stop Kidding...

                                                     Starbucks Cup makes a PERFECT juicing cup!

Today I woke up to find that I had gained 3 pounds after having a Combo of 2 Hotdogs and fries at a local DairyO. I have to say they were AWESOME. But honestly I feel like crap from it. If you have read my blogs or Facebook you may know that I bought a juicer. And yes for the past couple of days been drinking about 20 oz of juice per day. BUT was eating MORE junk too. So hoping to have enough fruits and veggies until Andrews next check, I am going to try to not snack or anything. Just juice and water and green tea. I might have a SMALL dinner tonight but thats it. Because really I need to stop kidding myself! Bathing suit season is coming up! Hubby bought me a pop-up camper and the place has a swimming pool where we camp at! Plus in March I am going to be a bridesmaid! So from this day foward No more junk food. And if I stumble then I know that it just hurts myself!

Q: How many times a day should I juice if I am on a juice fast? 
A: 4-6 times per day, 16-20 ounces for each juice

Thats how much I have to drink. By the way!

New Juicer! So excited!

Today we were able to finally get a juicer so we can get healthy! We went to Kmart to get it. Me, Andrew, and my mom are all going to start juicing soon, so we decided we would go halfers on it. My mom won a $50.00 Sear Gift Card so she let us use that and then my aunt gave me $50.00 for my birthday that was Jan. 30th. Kmart has the Jack Lalanne on sale for 89.99, $10.00 cheaper than Walmart so we got out cheaper than what we thought we were going to. After going to the farmers market to get some fruits and veggies we head home. We clean it up and first try plain Granny Smith apple juice. It is awesome! We haven't tried anything else yet. But recommend this one. Only thing I don't like is the silk screen because of particles get stuck, but all of them have that so I will have to get over that.

Our New Journey

Hubby and I have started a new journey in our lives. Today makes 4 1/2 days eating nothing but veggies and fruits. Of course we are drinking tea and milk, water, and having cheese and eggs but no meat whatsoever. It has been extremely hard but as the days past its getting easier. We are going to continue to do this until after we get done juice fasting from Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.

I personally want to get healthy because I know I'm not and after the past few days I can tell that I am most defiantly changing our eating habits well after juicing. We may or may not go back to eating a small amount of chicken but we arn't sure yet.

Having eating what we have these past day I have had a lot more energy that what I had. Also I want to lose weight because I have to be in a wedding in March, Hubby also. And I want to get into that bikini because swimming is my life!

Either way, getting healthy is My husbands and my priority.

I would so recommend Boca and MorningStar products. They are meatless and tastes really good!
