Try it out and help me out?

I am really excited about Shaklee cleaning products

AND looking for some "extra" food money. I do not have the time or energy to start a business right now. There is a special going on right now that may help us both. If you go look around the Shaklee site and find products that you'd like to try, you will receive 15% your first order. If you purchase more than $30 I will also receive products. If you fall in love like I have I could become a distributor and meet all your cleaning supply needs. If not, you got a great deal on inexpensive, helping products that do what you want them to and feel no pressure.

There are many many fan pages written about this baby here:

and I agree and they are true and I use it and like it and all but I CANNOT keep enough of this stuff aound

all natural, made from cherry pits and actually made MY sink and oven clean. With NO scrubbing. I believed that it would but figured it would also be a lot of work. NOPE. I also made new again three large stainless steel pots that I had burnt stuff on. (I know I know I am a natural before and after challenge:)

I can rave about these products but there are two ladies that do SUCH a better job...check out their how tos and before and afters (they also offer give aways from time to time ;)

I honestly do suggest that you try their cleaning supplies. I haven't even ventured into laundry and dishes yet :) Wanna join me on this journey and try them out with me? Id really really appreciate if you go through

Family Gallery my way

We have lived in this house for 20 months now.

 Almost 2 years. Still does not seem real. Life is easier, everything nicer, seems too good to be true. Like we are just visiting.  I wanted to do something to make it ours; show that we live here.

A family gallery wall seemed fitting. You aren't expecting a tutorial on the right way to do this, are you? Maybe if you are new to this blog and we've never met you may be. I need to warn you. Not how things are done around here. My version is a comforting: If SHE can pull that off I definitely can.

I wanted a family picture gallery. So I studied amazing ones. I found huge linkys and went through each one figuring out what I liked. I grew impatient.

I waited for sales and printed pictures. I waited for more sales and bought Command strips. Slowly. Very very slowly I prepared. I am so very impatient and this got REALLY old quickly.
There is this nice hallway in "our" house that had some holes in the wall. I found a sign at Ross for $4. that reads: "Family: The Lord has done great thing for our family  Psalm 126:3." I stuck nails in the holes and the sign fit. I KNOW that you are "supposed" to cut out newsprint or brown paper to the right sizes and play with your configuration. Really didn't have the time or the patience. I got sticky tack and started sticking

pictures up as they were printed. 
 I went to the 99 cents store and stocked up on frames.

Whenever I had a few minutes I would pull a picture off the wall, frame it, attach Command strips and press. Few days later another and another.....

Here it is now.

The walls are a deep taupe. I took this picture at night and then my batteries died. I just bought new ones but they all dissappeared. I will post now and hopefully add updated pictures later. but I think you get the idea ;)  I think the gallery wall  is done but there are no guarantees that I won't keep adding around the edges...
