Exclusive AdoramaPix Hexagon Metal Print Coupon


AdoramaPix offers a variety of quality products that can be customized and created with your favorite images.  AdoramaPix allows you to turn your favorite photographs into wall art that will last a life time.  I was especially excited to find that AdoramaPix can infuse images into metal creating a very durable and stylish way to display and preserve your favorite images.  The result is truly beautiful. It still amazes me how AdoramaPix could turn a simple photograph I took on my phone into such a high quality metal print.  Thanks to this amazing AdoramaPix metal print, I will always remember the fun I had one rainy day in Ephraim with my family.


The AdoramaPix website is easy to use.  When creating wall art from one of your favorite photos, you simply place your cursor over the words, Wall Décor, on the AdormaPix homepage.  A drop menu will appear listing all of your options.  If you would like to create a cool Hexagon metal print with one of your photographs, simply click on the metal prints option and then select create now.  AdoramaPix offers eight different shape options for you to choose from when creating your metal print.  The hexagon shape is the last one on the list since it is the newest.  Simply select your shape and then choose from the three different size options.  The hexagon metal print can be created in the sizes 7″ x 8″, 9.5″ x 11″, and 13″ x 15″.  The wall art I created is a 9.5″ x 11″ hexagon metal print.  Next you choose the image you would like to use.  You can easily move the image around to have it centered just how you would like it on the hexagon print.  AdoramaPix offers several choices for mounting your print.  You can choose an easel, magnet, acrylic pedestal, wall mount, or simply leave it free of any fixture.  I chose a wall mount for the back of my print.  The wall mount leaves your print floating about a 1/2 inch off the wall and gives the print an even more striking look.  All four of the corners of the wall mount also have a clear rubbery pads that help keep your image from shifting on the wall.

The quality and attention to detail is present in both my hexagon metal print as well as the wall mount on the back of the print.  AndoramaPix takes great care in making your creation a reality.  AndoramaPix even provides a cleaning cloth with your metal print to help keep your image looking spotless.  This already came in handy since my daughter was very excited to point herself out on fun shaped wall décor.  Creating several hexagon metal prints would be a beautiful and creative way to display your favorite images.  A collage of several hexagon metal prints is eye catching and would make a great feature on any wall.

Cave Tools Digital Cooking Thermometer


No more guessing if your meat is ready to eat!  Cave Tools has a quick reading thermometer that helps you easily prepare your favorite foods with mouth watering results.  The Cave Tools Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer provides a temperature in only 4-6 seconds.  This quick read device is easy to use and conveniently small in size.    Its small size as well as the white plastic storage case with a clip allow you to easily clip the thermometer to your shirt pocket.


The Cave Tools Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer can be used on any type of meat as well as fish, casseroles, liquids, and with deep fryers.  I recently prepared a roast in the oven using the Cave Tools Thermometer.  We normally like to eat our roast medium rare but we were using this roast for sandwiches so I decided to prepare it more on the medium side.  By rule of thumb I usually cook the roast 6 minutes for every pound at this temperature.  This roast was less than 2 pounds so after rubbing it in blend of salt, pepper, thyme, Montreal Steak Seasoning, I baked it in the oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes.  I then turned the oven off and let the roast continue to cook in the oven for 2 more hours.  After those two hours, I pulled it out of oven and used the Cave Tools thermometer to check my roast.  The reading was quick and easy to read on the display.  Thanks to the help of my new Cave Tools Quick Read Thermometer this roast came out perfectly.  The piece pictured below is the outside edge so the center was more even more tender.


This digital cooking thermometer measures temperature in both Celsius and Fahrenheit.  When you wish to determine the temperature of your food, press the ON/OFF button to turn the thermometer on.  Insert the clean tip into your food and press the HOLD button.  An “H” will appear in the LCD and will hold the temperature reading until pressed again.  If you would like to determine highest temperature detected in your food, press the MAX button.  MAX will appear in the LCD while reading the highest temperature. If you press this button again, MIN will appear in the LCD and the lowest temperature will be detected by the thermometer.  Press the MAX button a third time to exit the MAX function.


The Cave Tools Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer is not intended to be left in a hot oven or microwave.  This thermometer should be hand washed only since there are electronic componenents to this device.  When the LCD display begins to dim, simply install a new watch (LR44) battery with the positive side up.  The Cave Tools Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer will automatically shut off after 10 minutes so this greatly helps the battery life.

Buy It!


The Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer can be purchased online at the Cave Tools website as well as at Amazon.  Score 15% off the purchase of the Cave Tools Thermometer with code: LH58KB66.  This would make a great Father’s Day gift for dad!

Smart Planet Iced Coffee To Go Review & Giveaway


The Smart Planet Home recently introduced an amazing new bottle that allows you to enjoy homemade iced coffee on the go!  The new Iced Coffee To Go bottle has a smart 2x chill technology design that allows you to turn your regular brewed hot coffee into a yummy cold beverage.   Simply follow these five easy steps.

1. Pre-freeze the “Coffee To Go”

2. Add fresh brewed coffee

3. Allow to chill for 5 minutes

4. Remove “Freezer Rod”

5.  Add ice and enjoy

DSC_0586Once you fill the freezing rod with water, screw on the black cap and place in the freezer along with the tumbler.  Allow to freeze for 4-6 hours if the rod is inside the tumbler.  I place them in my freezer separately and found they freeze in less than recommended time.

DSC_0603 DSC_0605DSC_0602

Once both parts of the bottle are frozen and ready to use, brew you the coffee of your choice.


Fill the tumbler about half way full with your brewed coffee.  If you do not add very much cream, milk, or sweetener to your tumbler, you will most likely be able to fill it with a little more coffee.  I filled mine a little more than half way because I just add a little organic half and half to my coffee and one pump of Torani Irish Cream Syrup.  Of course, you will be able to perfect this, the more you use it.  Then add the straw and fill with ice.  Twist on your cap and enjoy!


We finally have warm weather here in Wisconsin and that means I am officially switching to iced coffee for the summer!  I am loving this Iced Coffee To Go Bottle because it is so quick and simple to use.  Plus, this time of year our schedule gets a little crazy with sports and other events so be able to drag my coffee along with me is so convenient!  I enjoyed my son’s baseball yesterday with a nice cold coffee thanks to this bottle and its clever design.

IMG_8558Always hand wash and never microwave the Iced Coffee To Go Bottle.  The double wall contains freezer gel and is intended to only chill beverages.

Nuby Bite Resistant Spout No Spill Cup

DSC_1044Looking for a fun cup to keep your little one hydrated this summer?  Nuby No Spill Easy Sip Cups are both fun and functional.  They have a hard drinking spout that is bite resistant.  These cups are great for children 9 months of age and older.  The base of each cup is insulated to help keep your child’s beverage cold and feature a fun Nickelodeon print.  My daughter has this Nuby cup with a Dora print and loves it.  She has used it at meal time as well as on the go but she must have it filled with water each night so it can be in her room through out the night.  Needless to say, this cup gets tipped over a lot and left on its side yet it has never leaked.


The Nuby No Spill Easy Sip Cup is perfect for my toddler.  She loves the vibrant colors and Dora print and the insulated helps her water stay cold longer.  The spout has proven to truly be spill proof yet easy to drink from.  The Nuby No Spill Easy Sip cup consists of three parts and cleans up quite easily.

IMG_7318 DSC_1046

The Nuby No Spill Easy Sip Cup even has a “This Cup Belongs To” are on the base of the cup so you can easily label your child’s cup.  This is super convenient for kids going to daycare as well as an easy way to keep your own kids from getting their cups mixed up.  Labels are a huge help for my husband since he never knows which cup to grab when one of our kids requests a drink.


Buy It!

Nuby No Spill Easy Sip Cup can be purchased in a variety of prints featuring Dora, SpongeBob, or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  These cups can be found online at Amazon.

I am proud to be a Nûby Parent Blogger!  I received this Dora Bite Resistant Spout Cup from Nuby for review purposes.  All opinions are mine alone and based off of my experience with the product I reviewed.

SmartPlanet Boing Collapsible Food Storage Set Review & Giveaway


SmartPlanet offers an amazing selection of food storage options to meet the needs of any household.  The Boing Collapsible Food Storage Set is one of the newest products to be added to this selection.  This food storage set consists of three canisters that can expand and bend to suit your needs and are BPA free.  The Boing Collapsible Food Storage canisters also collapse so they can easily be stored away when not in use.  Each canister expands to 70 ounces making them great for storing a variety of different dry food items such pasta, cereal, cookies, other snack foods, and much more.

IMG_7626 IMG_7631

My children are becoming more and more independent every day.  One of my kids favorite ways to express their independence is by preparing their own snacks.  This can be extremely helpful at times but can also result in a lot more work for mom and dad when our independent cuties make big messes.  The bag inside of the cereal box seemed to be the biggest culprit in creating spills.  No matter how slowly my kids attempt to pour out the cereal, it can still catch in the bag.  This of course results in a more vigorous pour and an avalanche of cereal crashing to the floor.  The Boing Collapsible Food Storage Set is now the new home of my kids favorite cereals.  I surprised the kids with this specially themed cereal for St. Patty’s Day and oh did those yucky dyed marshmallows leave their mouths green.  Our canisters are holding much better cereal choices these days.  We will be leaving this cereal for the leprechauns to enjoy from now on!  However, we are still enjoying these fun Boing Collapsible canisters.  They appeal to my kids visually and best of all they can easily pour the cereal out of these canisters.

Each canister has a matching lid and base in a vibrant color.  My daughter quickly took claim to the purple canister, leaving her brothers to stake claim to the blue and green.  All of the colors are vibrant and fun.  The Boing Collapsible Food Storage Set would also be a fun means of organizing arts and crafts supplies as well as small toys.

The Boing Collapsible Food Storage Set is available for purchase online at the SmartPlanet website.
