Heat Holders Socks Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 4/13 (Rafflecopter)

I recently had a chance to review some Heat Holders socks! I really loved the pink stripes, and how soft the socks were. It's been so cold here in Tennessee this winter, that Heat Holders socks have really come in handy. We even drove from Tennessee to California, and back again. As soon as we left Arizona, it started to get super cold again. I was so glad to have my Heat Holders socks to keep my feet warm! It was warm in California, in the 70's and 80's most days, which made it perfect weather for hanging around outside! We got to wear shorts! But since we came back to Tennessee, it's been in the 40's and 50's again. The Heat Holders company also has NEW Heat Holders Gloves, Hats, and Mittens! Below is information about how Heat Holders products work!

About Heat Holders:

Heat Holders was established in 1947 in England. At that time the company used to trade yarn. The last few decades our company has been manufacturing, importing and distributing socks.
Their North American office is based out of Oakville, Ontario in Canada. We have multiple warehouses and fulfillment centers. Shipments for this website are serviced through our fulfillment center in North Carolina.

Heat Holders was developed by our talented product development team in house. The challenge was to make a sock that would be the warmest sock ever and comfortable and practical to wear in daily life. It wasn't easy, but our team came up with Heat Holders in 2008.

Since then they have sold more than 10 million pairs worldwide and our distribution continues to grow. This growth is because of our customers who are truly satisfied with Heat Holders. Whether they are at Home, at Work or at Play in the cold winter months, there is a pair of Heat Heat Holders for them, which keeps them warm, comfortable and safe.

Laurie Berkner Lullabies CD Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 4/13 (Rafflecopter)

My children and I LOVE The Laurie Berkner Band! We can't get enough of them. In our car, house, and when we are at other people's homes, we take our Laurie Berkner Band CD's with us! My children asked several times on our road trip for us to put on one of Laurie's CD's!

Laurie has out a NEW Album called "Laurie Berkner Lullabies!" This Album isn't only for babies or toddlers, but young children and adults too! The songs aren't as slow as you would think they would be, which is great! They are all sang so beautifully. My children, ages six and a half, four and a half, and twenty one months, loved this album, and they keep asking me to play it over and over again. Our favorite songs on this album are Moon Moon Moon, Fireflies, Mahalo, Pillowland, Stars Are Shining, Good Night and more! Below is a video of the song "Pillowland," one of my children's favorite videos!

Here is some information about Laurie Berkner (taken from her website):

When Laurie Berkner embarked on her career as a children's recording artist in the summer of 1997, she started small - personally filling orders of her first release (Whaddaya Think of That?) from her living room in Manhattan while still keeping up her preschool music teaching jobs. It wasn't long, however, before the 500 copies she originally pressed sold out, and Two Tomatoes Records was born.

Laurie's growing popularity in the New York area led to a second release, 1998's Buzz Buzz. Soon more local toy stores and children's specialty shops began selling her music and distribution companies began purchasing quantities of her recordings. Sarah Milstein moved on, and shortly after the 1999 release of Victor Vito, Laurie took the bold step of hiring a publicist - also named Sarah (SKG Publicity). Things began to move more quickly thereafter, with national media coverage helping spread the word.  Laurie then appeared on the "Today" show and suddenly Two Tomatoes was swamped with orders.

 In the meantime, Laurie's closets were becoming more and more stuffed. Two Tomatoes was taking over her living room with the 2000 re-release of her first recording on disc, and running the record label was no longer a part-time job. Laurie decided to give up her teaching to, as she put it, "reign in the monster!"  In 2002, shortly before the release of Under A Shady Tree, it became clear that there was no longer enough space in Laurie and husband Brian's one-bedroom apartment for a record label. Two Tomatoes moved into a real office in New York City, with real staff including Shannon Chirone (COO), then Corinne Barlow (CBO). Shortly thereafter John Waldman (Great Knight Productions) signed up as booking agent/manager and later still came the addition of another Tomato, Katie Schneller (Director of New Media and Fan Relations) and Laurie, Brian and daughter Lucy moved into a new more spacious apartment.  It's one big happy family!

In turning to Kickstarter to raise funds for this project, Laurie made sure to thank her supporters with some great rewards, like advanced digital copies of the CD, sneak video peaks at the recording of the CD, and autographed, even personalized, copies of the CD!

For the bigger supporters, the rewards were outstanding! Laurie recorded personal outgoing voice mail messages; and she even included children’s artwork on the CD cover itself! Some families even got a chance to Skype with Laurie Berkner!
