I Caught Santa in My Back Yard!

I just had a great time creating a cool I Caught Santa.com picture for my husband. Won't he be suprised.... no, I take that back ... he'll be shocked that Santa is checking out his ride!  Who knew Santa liked lawn tractors????


This is a really fun program. It's a great product if you need a gift for someone who has everything, if you have children (you can show Santa in your house), and/or if you need a gift for someone you don't know too well, but need to give a gift; and perfect for the office. Very versatile.

It's Super duper easy. Take a digital picture of your Christmas tree, a room in the house (or like me) something in the yard ... it's up to you. Horizontal, high-resolution pictures work best. Save your background photo to your computer; it will be uploaded to the ICaughtSanta.com site.

Pick one of their many Santa poses (I believe there are 20) and place him into your background photo (you can resize him, flip him, rotate him, etc.) very simply.

You can get the picture for free if you get one of the 4 giveaway codes we have on hand. Once Santa is placed, you save the picture, download and email it to yourself, or print your photo, automatically, for quick pickup at a store near you.

And, they also offer a video of Santa on your background for a small fee.

Maybe it's the kid in me, but I had a blast playing with this. You can also choose from the Tooth Fairy, Cupid, the Easter Bunny or of course, Santa. Whatever your pleasure is.

Again, if you have small children and they see a picture or video of Santa in their home, it will be PROOF that Santa is not only real, but was actually "caught in the act" in his or her very own home. It keeps the magic going a little longer : )

I have 4 free coupons to the first 4 people who email me and leave a comment on this post! Make sure you send me your email address so I can send you the code.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

LucyPhone.Com - Don't Ever Sit On Hold Again!

LucyPhone.com - Pure Genius ... Why Didn't I Think of This?????

How LucyPhone Works:

Lucy will call you first then "patch" you through to the company.

Use the company's phone menu just as you normally would. Get put on hold? Press ** and your phone will be disconnected but Lucy will stay on the line.

Once a live agent is on the line, Lucy will call you back immediately and connect you both. Get put on hold again, just press ** again!

Probably one of the best new computer ideas this year!

Classic Retro Overlay Cocktail Dress


Just added  "Penny."  You can't get more classic retro than this fabulous overlay dress.  Reminds me of something June Allyson would wear in a Jimmy Stewart Movie... love this classic dress.  Nice for prom, weddings or evenings. 

This gorgeous dress is a violet color, made from a stretch cotton sateen. It has a stretch polka dot mesh overlay over the top bodice, and a keyhole closure with a velveteen bow in the back. The sweetheart neckline and nipped waist compliment your curves. Limited Edition! Would look great with a black petticoat!  At Get Go Retro.
