Have your heard Matt Kearny's New CD? You can hear "Hey Mama" right now!

My drive time to and from anywhere seems to be with family in tow. The day before the arrival of Hurricane Irene I set out to gather up some groceries, alone . This gave me the chance to listen to Matt Kearny's CD Young Love  in the car, by myself. The first song on the CD , Hey Mama  is upbeat, lively,fresh, and fun. Driving through the rain, wondering how much wind and rain would be heading our way, the music took my mind off the weather. His songs have been heard on popular television shows, and he is winning the crowds respect and love. I hear why. What I liked about Matt Kearny's CD, Young Love + lively, upbeat songs, clap your hands, dance, be happy. + quiet songs, words to think about, relate to. +  variety of songs, life, love, family, hardships, good times, bad times. + is a CD I will listen to again. + is a CD I will play at a party or a backyard Barbecue. + is a CD I will recommend buying least listening to. + has words I can understand and enjoy hearing.(that is a b

Get in Gear With Tiny Prints this school year!

  Visit Tiny Prints  By this time of the Summer we have piles growing in our house, piles of school supplies.  Those school list are keeping us busy organizing, shopping, ordering, and selecting  the right items on the list. Tiny Prints  can help with many aspects of back to school offering personalized cards, labels, tags, notebooks, and even dorm decorations. One of my favorite things from Tiny Prints is the Allergy Cards . Every year my kids bring home a card from school for parents to fill out, in the small space we are supposed to write contact and medical information. How nice would it be to just staple one of the allergy cards, or medical contact personalized card onto the school card and not have to fill out the school card. These cards are also great for the child to keep in their wallet, backpack or purse in case of an emergency. Tiny Prints also offer a great selection of Holiday cards and invitations your child can hand out at school for their upcoming party.  For that
