Community Circle Notecard

For the next 2 weeks I am in the Featured Marketplace at One2One Network. I donated some Handcrafted Notecards to One2One for the Blissdom 2011 Conference. Since I don’t currently have any notecards available I offered all One2One members the opportunity to purchase some Moonflower seeds. The Member Marketplace has a posting of my Garden Steppingstones and Moonflower seeds in the Market Place area. I would also like to offer this to all my readers (while supplies last).

Garden Stepping Stones & Note Cards

I am aspiring to become a Professional Crafter of home decor, fashion accessories, gift cards and garden steppingstones. I have been hand crafting mosaic garden steppingstones and note cards since 2004. Currently I have been selling them to family and friends and at local craft fairs and church garage sales.

I started a blog for others to see my Mosaic Garden Stones: http://gardensteppingstones.wordpress.com I currently sell the mosaic garden stones locally in the Austin Texas area.

I have an offer to One2One Network members for some of my Organic Moonflower seeds that have come from the Beautiful Moonflowers that grow in my garden, the seeds are from 2010 Moonflower pods. One2One Network members may purchase the seeds for only $1.75 a packet (includes shipping). These Beautiful Moonflowers can be seen on my gardensteppingstones.wordpress.com blog. I have 30 packets available at this price. For more information about the seeds they can see a picture on my blog, email me at garden_steppingstones@yahoo.com or contact me via the blog website. Visit my gardensteppingstones website for more Moonflower pictures.

Spring Cleaning Tips to Protect from Identity Theft

The Identity Theft Resource Center recommends their Top 5 Tips for spring cleaning the home office:

Begin with the Basics: Sort through the piles of paperwork on your desk and in your office drawers. Place them into two categories: ‘save’ and ‘shred.’

Proper Storage: Organize the “save” pile into labeled folders and be sure to put anything confidential into a fire-proof lock box. The “shred” pile should be properly disposed of with a Cross-Cut shredder, such as a Fellowes P-12C.

Cross-Cut technology is an important feature for a shredder because it provides high security, destroying confidential information into unidentifiable pieces. Equally important are enhanced safety features, such as Fellowes’ SafeSense technology, which shuts the machine down when hands come too close to the paper opening, which is so important if you have children.

Get a Digital Makeover: Refresh your home office computer by deleting files you no longer use and backing-up important data onto an external hard drive. Clean out your inbox and change all passwords. Refreshing your computer is a good practice to follow throughout the year as well.

Make Life Easier: Plan ahead by purchasing organizational tools for your desk, such as computer risers or file folder holders. This will help clear clutter from your desk top while keeping things within arms reach.
Freshen Up: Get rid of dust and germs that easily build up on office equipment such as keyboards, telephones and cabinets. You’ll feel instantly more productive with a clean workspace.

The Fellowes P-12C paper shredder is a durable, innovative and affordable machine. With Fellowes’ industry-leading technologies, the P-12C provides high-security and is safe for family environments.

* To ensure high-security against identity thieves, the P-12C features Cross-Cut technology, which destroys a single sheet of paper into nearly 399 particles.

* The P-12C can also shred staples, credit cards and paper clips to help speed up your spring cleaning process.

* Its slim profile design allows the P-12C to fit in any office environment, including under desks or in kitchens and other rooms.

The P-12C has a suggested retail price of $89.99 and is available at Target Stores nationwide.

My Thoughts: I have always just cut up / torn apart my mail when I got it, as I did not have a shredder in the house to use. Often times I would save my household items and take it to the local school when they would offer a bulk shredding day. The Fellowes P-12C sounds like a wonderful shredder for home and office use, and would help safe guard against identity theft.

Disclosure: Information provided by One2One Network and Fellowes. My name will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Fellowes P-12C shredder.

Get the Dirt, but Keep it Clean

We know it, you know it: women love celebrity dirt. This Valentine’s Day, a new mobile campaign from Clorox® Regular-Bleach helps women clean up their own dirt while they enjoy their Hollywood news.

 

Clorox is sharing quick clean-up tips on how to keep fashionable winter whites white, keep flowers fresh longer and host a Hollywood-style party. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a girl can use some help. Tips like…
 
 * Nothing says “I love you” like roses. Want to enjoy those flowers longer than a celebrity romance? Just add ¼ teaspoon of Clorox® Regular-Bleach to each quart of cold water you put in the vase.
 
 * Got a stain from a heart-shaped chocolate on your favorite whites? It’ll come out in a snap once you add ¾ cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach to the hot water and detergent in your washing machine.
To get more tips from Clorox® Regular-Bleach and extend the Valentine’s Day romance, readers can enter the Get the Dirt, but Keep it Clean sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for 2 Hollywood, CA! To enter and view official rules, visit www.Clorox.com/GetTheDirt.
I received information from The Clorox Company at no cost to me.  This information was provided to me by joining in on a One2One campaign.
