I like to get really creative when I'm giving gifts, but sometimes when you're giving gifts to little kids they want something specific that they've seen on commercials, like a holiday Barbie, and just won't be happy unless they get it for Christmas. But one area that I've learned you can trick them in at Christmas is stocking stuffers. You can make little, inexpensive things look really nice if you put them in a stocking and stick to a few little tricks.

I started thinking about that a few weeks ago and when I was doing that I went online with our CLEAR TV BUNDLE to see if I could find some easy and cheap stocking stuffers to put in my kids' stockings.

One of the cheap stocking stuffers that I came up with was to buy a little pink notebook and take some Barbie stickers and put it on the cover. Then I got some hot pink pencils to match the notebook that my daughter will think are Barbie things too. I also got her some cheap little hair clips that I know she'll like too


About a couple of days ago a saw a news clip about this man with a Golden voice. A homeless man name Ted Williams was just given a second chance of a lifetime. I could not believe his voice, I mean my goodness it was just so magical. When you hear him talk he just sucks you into the story he tells. He truly has a God given voice and is tailor made for Radio or sport broadcasting. I was so glad to see and read in the news that he was been offered jobs and that he is getting his life back in order. It matters not what you were in the past, what matters is what you do with the opportunity you have in the present so you have something to look forward in the future. To Ted Williams I wish you all the best and may you succeed this time around and prove that you are worth the second chance. To read more about his story click here.
