Shaklee review and Giveaway!!!

**This giveaway is closed**

Bonnie from House of Grace sent me a sample of
Shaklee's Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate to try out.

If you have read my blog for more than a minute you know that I am a fan of natural,
non-toxic cleaning and use vinegar, lemon and baking soda to clean my home.

I found this on their website:
Our mission at Shaklee is to provide a healthier life for everyone and a better life for anyone. We do it by making natural products that are so exceptional, you just have to tell your friends. Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet.

When you pick Shaklee, you will know three things to be true.
It is always safe. It always works. And it is always green.
Needless to say I was pretty stoked to give this stuff a try!!!

This is what came in the mail.

And this is what was inside that little package...can you BELIEVE that?
It's so tiny!

I got my dollar store spray bottles out and followed the directions.

The sample made a bottle of window cleaner and an all purpose cleaner.
All from that tiny little vial and some water.
Now that's some crazy concentrated stuff!!!

Okay, so let's see what this stuff can do, shall we?

Here is my fingerprint covered fridge before.

Here is a close up of the goo that my son deposits daily.

And here is the fridge after cleaning it with the Basic H2.
So clean and shiny!

It helped quite a bit with the hard water stains on the water dispenser too.
From what I have seen I think Shaklee's Get Clean Scour Off 
would probably finish up this job;)

Here's the T.V, covered with cracker goo, fingerprints
and lick marks from the toddler and the dog:
T.V. Before.

 I sprayed on the Basic H2 window cleaner, wiped it down...
And here is the AFTER!
Shiny and Goo-less.

Okay, so I saved the grossest one for last. Don't look Anna! ;)
This is the sink in the master bathroom:
I can't believe I posted gross!

 I sprayed it with Basic H2 and easily wiped away the grime.
Ahhhh, so clean!

I must say that I am impressed.

Wanna give this stuff a try yourself?
Of course you do, that was a silly question!

Bonnie is giving 5 of my readers a sample of their own!

Fabric Eggs

I made these a couple weeks ago and just never got around to posting them;)

I blame it on:

Aren't they lovely?

Plastic Eggs + Fabric scraps + Mod Podge = AWESOME.

Easter 2011

We had a wonderful Easter with my family.
I didn't take nearly enough photos because I was having so much fun.
Me and my hubby Jon.

The boy and the girl...Travis(18 months) and Brooklyn(8 years).

Jon and Brooklyn...I love their relationship:)

Me with my baby girl...she's growing up way too fast!

Hubby was getting creative here:)

My son and I...
He would not let me hold him for the picture and instead wanted to sit next to me.

Independent little boy.

This boy makes me heart melt.

He was teething, had a fever and kept falling on his head.
Rough day!

Poor baby!

He wasn't sure about the eggs, but then he found out what was inside;)

I hope your Easter was amazing!
