How to massage your dog #cutedogs

This is my dog, Midnight.  He is a rescue dog and sometimes gets stressed.  Here is how to give a dog a massage.  As much as we enjoy a good massage, a dog loves it even more.  Midnight was the one who found my cancer first and I will forever be grateful to him.  Giving him a morning massage is a small thing I could for him.

8 Ways To Not Forget Your Child In The Car

Life is hectic and people are stressed.  Sometimes a schedule can change and a different person is dropping off your child.  Years ago I worked with a grandmother who took the toddler to daycare on a certain day.  One day her daughter needed to drop her off on a day that wasn't her normal routine.  The toddler was asleep the entire drive.  When she got out of her care she saw her in the back seat.  She had forgotten to drop her off because it was not the day she always took her.  I can not even describe how distraught she was. If someone else is dropping off your child somewhere, have them call you after the child is dropped off.  Also, you can call the daycare and make sure they are there. 

I can not imagine how devastating it would be to know you caused harm to a child that you love.  I am not passing judgement.  Here are suggestions from Parents Magazine on how to prevent such a tragedy.  This poster was on the Parents Magazine Pinterest page.

Happy Flag Day June 14, 2016

I want to honor those who fought for our freedom. I took this picture of a flag in front of our bank.  It was a beautiful sunny day and the flag reminded me that freedom is never free.

Family Photo Hand Drawn As Anime #Anime #originalart

My Granddaughter, Grace, loves Anime.  She is always drawing and she decided to try drawing from a photograph.  She made two drawings.  The first is her Dad and her sister.  

A photo posted by Lisa Sheldon (@lisasfreestuff) on

The second drawing is Grace and her Dad skating.  She is an amazing artist for a 10-year-old.  I am so proud of her.

Grace picked out the photographs she wanted to draw.  These photos show how important a father is to his children.

Classy Sassy And A Bit Bad Assy

The Classy Sassy And A Bit Bad Assy coffee mug by Got Me Tipsy says it all!  We all know someone who fits this perfectly.  I definitely would be in this category.
The Bad Assy coffee mug is a nice sturdy cup.  The handle is firmly attached and comfortable.
This mug is a nice size at 11oz.  It holds enough coffee or tea so I do not have to keep getting up.  It is thick enough to keep my drink hot.  The Bad Assy mug is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Even after washing it multiple times, the print has not faded.  It still looks like new.

The Classy Sassy and a Bit Bad Assy comes in a nice box so it would make a wonderful gift.  This mug is sure to put a smile on everyone's face.

I received this coffee mug at no cost and feedback is based on my first-hand usage of the product #GotMeTipsy

Classic Safari Camo Pistol Rug Review #CLASSICSAFARI #SPRUGCAM

Protect Your Pistol From Dust And Scratches

My husband has an antique pistol that he does not use, but wants to keep perfect when stored.  He did not see a need for a large padded case since it never leaves the metal gun cabinet.  The Classic Safari Camo Pistol Rug is just what he has been looking for. 
 The case is 10x6x1 and weighs only 1.6 oz.  My husband's pistol is smaller and it fits perfectly.  If you have a larger pistol you may want to check length to make sure it will fit.  
The Classic Safari camo pistol rug has solid stitching and a sturdy zipper.  The inside has soft padding.  This has been perfect for storing my husband's pistol and he doesn't have to worry about damage with other items stored in the gun cabinet.  

This case is only a zippered holder and does not lock.  It is NOT childproof.  All guns should be secured with a lock and away from children. We have a double undrillable lock metal gun case. This case helps keep the value of our antique pistol and is well worth the very low price.

I received this pistol rug at no cost and feedback is based on my first-hand usage of the product. 

Mother's are not always the one who gave birth to you #mothersday #adopted

Happy Mother's Day

A Mother is the person who loves you unconditionally.  It is not always someone who gave birth to you.  She is the one who took care of me when I was sick, She gave us a good home.  This is my Mother who adopted my brother and I when we were 5 and 7.  It takes a special person to adopt older children.  Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Save Trees By Opting Out Of Yellowbook Delivery


If you are like me, you use your phone to look up phone numbers.  There is a simple opt-out form that you can fill out to stop delivery of the Yellowbook.  If you already received a Yellowbook and don't plan on using it, there are usually recycling stations to dispose of unwanted phone books.  Help save trees and the earth!


TeamObsidian's Bicycle Light Set Review #TeamObsidian

Easily Be Seen By Motorist

The Team Obsidian's Bicycle Light Set comes with a headlight and tail light.
I love to ride my bike but worry about being seen, especially at night.  The set is made of solid aluminum and rugged ABS plastic to last.  The water-resistant case is designed to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions.
The headlight is super bright so you can see ahead of you and drivers can see you.  I have tried other bike headlights and this by far is the brightest and illuminates a much larger area than other brands.  
The tail light is large and has more light modes than most other tail lights.  It can easily be seen from a distance.  
There are no tools needed to install either light. They are both held on by clamps, so they do not slide around.  There are 2 handlebar brackets to fit any size bike handles.

I like to ride my bike at night when the temperature is cooler and I feel safe with the Team Obsidian's Bicycle Light Set. They have a 100% lifetime guarantee, so there is nothing to lose!

Silicone Oven Mitts Review #SiliconeOvenMitts

No More Dirty Oven Mitts

Kuuk Silicone Oven Mitts/Gloves have a non-slip outer grip.  They have a very soft thick cotton and polyester padding inside for comfort and extra protection against heat.
You get the comfort of traditional oven mitts with the advantages of silicone.  The spoke and circle pattern makes sure that your hands won't slip causing drops, spills or burns. The outer surface is made of 100% FDA silicone and BPA free so it is safe.  
 As a bonus, a durable silicone trivet hot pad is included with every purchase. I keep it handy to place hot pots and pans.  It can also be used to open jars because of it's non-slip raised design.  

This is a high quality set that has a 10 year warranty.  I just rinse off the silicone shell after using and it keeps the soft inner lining clean since no food touches it. Replace those old stained oven mitts with a cleaner, safer and more comfortable set by Kuuk.
