2014 Christmas Gift Guide: I See Me! #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/23 (Quick Giveaway) #christmasgiftguide #holidaygiftguide

I love the personalization of the children's books at I See Me. My girls love them so much, that we read them over and over again, and they keep asking me to buy them more. I love that my children can see their own photos and that their names are incorporated into the stories and the stories are about them. The books are also very well made and haven't come apart at all!

All three of my children love their personalized children's books from I See Me! I asked my five year old daughter what she would read, and she said that she wanted another book from I See Me!

When you read books to your children from the day they are born, you help to foster their love of reading and learning. Even if they are just sitting on your lap, and they are turning the pages, and you make up a short story as they do this, you are helping to plant little seeds in them to help them enjoy reading! This would be a great gift for any child during winter break, for Valentine's Day (since it's coming up in a couple of months), or for Easter or their Birthday!

Connect with I See Me on Facebook and Pintrest.

Enter below for a chance to Win a personalized children's book from I See Me using the Rafflecopter form. Giveaway ends on 12/23, quick giveaway. Open to residents in the main 48 continental United States only. (You won't receive your book in time for Christmas, I'm sorry.)

Sponsored Post: Tips To Keep Your Home Cozy This Winter From David Leon, Home-Improvement Expert!

Disclosure: I will receive a gift card in exchange for my blog post. No other compensation was exchanged or received. The below opinions are not those of Heather Kelly or Airplanes and Dragonflies blog. 

(my own image)

Winter is finally here and for many Americans, it’s time to bundle up and stay indoors! Whether you have a favorite down quilt to bury yourself in or love sitting by the wood-burning fireplace, keeping warm is key this Winter! To ensure a wonderful and cozy winter season, licensed contractor and TV home-improvement expert David Leon from Home Made Simple on the Oprah Winfrey Network has provided the following tips to help make your home as comfy as possible this season.
  1. Heating system and air filters – Have your heating system serviced every year and check the filters system every month. Also, inspect your system’s exhaust vent for rust, damage, or any corrosion.
  2. Seal the leaks – Check to make sure your doors and windows are properly sealed so heat doesn’t escape.  Inspect caulking and weather stripping around openings for wear and tear, and replace if necessary.
  3. Plumbing – Busted water pipes can cause expensive damage. Take time now to wrap outside pipes that might be exposed to extreme temperatures. Review the locations for the main water and fuel shut-off valves with all members of your household.
  4. Have a plan - When you own a home, you know that things are going to break down – but when it happens, do you know who you’ll call or what you’ll do?  A home warranty is a great way to protect your budget against costly repairs, and save yourself the time and hassle of finding a qualified professional to get major systems and appliances up and running again.

This winter, homeowners should also be aware of important warning signs and potential heating system hazards to protect their homes from any accidents!  In 2011, faulty and improperly used heating equipment accounted for nearly 400 deaths nationwide, more than 53,000 fires and $893 million in direct property damage, according to the National Fire Protection Association. To help prevent heating system hazards, be aware of the following critical signs when you’re indoors this winter:
  • Always be aware of gas odors. If you smell gas around your heating unit, leave the area and call your gas company immediately.
  • Be sure your pilot light is burning a steady blue flame. If it is not, call your heating professional or a gas company.
  • Take a close look at your exhaust fan for any rust, damage or deterioration. If you notice any, call a qualified professional and describe what you see to determine whether a repair is needed.
  • Take extra care with space heaters. They should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never into an extension cord, and turned off at night. When in use, always be sure space heaters are a safe distance from curtains and other flammable items

Along with these warning signs, American Home Shield, the nation’s leading provider of home protection plans, reminds homeowners to use extra care when operating space heaters. For instance, they should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never into an extension cord, and turned off at night. When in use, always be sure space heaters are a safe distance from curtains and other flammable items.

Homeowners can watch helpful videos about a variety of home maintenance tips and home heating warning signs at  The informational videos are hosted by David Leon. American Home Shield also publishes the Home Matters blog, a resource to help homeowners balance their busy lives with tips and news on everything home.
