Weekend fun with Tryazon & Save the Day Seasonings!

Hello my bloggy friends!!

So if you follow me you know besides ALL the crafts, sewing & youtube I do I also love to have parties and review products. One of the groups I'm in is Tryazon. Tryazon sends you product to try and to share with family and friends, it is a lot of fun. I love having parties and Tryazon helps give me a reason to have a party!

So, on Saturday Oct 13 we were invited to a bonfire/blacklight party.  I thought this was a great time to share with my friends and make dips for them to try. I received a very generous selection of Save the Day Seasonings. Save the Day Seasonings are a delicious blend of spices, that are perfect for your everyday cooking needs!
With 15 different flavors for you to choose from and they are free from:

Gluten Free
Nothing Artificial
Soy Free
Dairy free
No Preservatives
No Dyes
Fresh Ingredients

The seasonings are great sprinkled on all your favorite foods. 
Like Meat, Seafood and Veggies! 
Make dips by mixing 
1 Tablespoon mix to 
1/2c. sour cream and 
1/2c. mayo. 
mix it into mashed potatoes or make a flavored 
butter to add to your bread or corn on the cob! 

So here are a few of my group of freinds that I shared the seasonings & dip with!
Along with couple a of pics of our food table!

We had a blast and everyone loved the dips and seasonings!
Here are the links to both companies!

I loved these seasonings as well and have been adding them to my meals. They have so many different ethnic flavors! It is fun to try out a different flavor every day of the week!

What are some ways you save money?


What are some ways you save money?

Well one way I save money is I shop at Kroger.
I have a Kroger credit card which I earn points for using at Kroger, Kroger gas staion or anywhere else. I get more points for using it at Kroger than other places. The points are then turned into cash and Kroger sends me checks every month to use at Kroger. 
So, what do I do with those checks?
I use them at Kroger to purchase gift cards. 
Kroger has lots of great gift cards for just about any store. I like to get Joann and Michaels gc's so I can get free craft supplies!! lol
Sometimes I will get Kohl's or JCP gift cards so I can get some shoes or clothes. And, when you purchase gift cards you also can earn extra points! 
So like from 9/12 to 9/25 you can load a digital coupon on your shoppers card and earn 4X the fuel points for purchasing gift cards! This is a great time to stock up on gift cards and save $ on gas all at the same time!

There is still more!

While shopping at Kroger I also earn points toward gas! For every 100 points, I save .10 per gallon on gas, up to $1.00 off per gallon!
So with my family of 4, there is lots of grocery shopping to do! 
I love saving the extra $ off my gas! 
I mean we gotta buy groceries, so what better than getting free gas while shopping!
So when I check out at Kroger I scan my shoppers card and it keeps track of all my shopping and then I earn my points. The points are on my card so when I am ready for gas, I go to a Kroger gas station and scan my card at the pump and it gives me the option to pick my savings based on what points I have.

Here is my gas savings statement from Kroger!

So this shows that I have saved $687.32 on gas so far this year!
And that I had up to $1 off of gas this month and I have used .80 of it so far. Which means I have 300 points or .30 off of my next fill up!
Or I can pick the amount I want to use up to .30

So what do you do to save money?
I would love to hear what you do!

What do you do when you're not crafting?


So, what do you do when you're not crafting?

I would love to craft 24/7 but of course I can't do that! lol

So, in my spare time on the weekends in the summer we go boating. When I'm home I like to watch the Walking Dead and Fear the Dead. I am not a big TV watcher but I do like to watch a few things on occassion. I actually would rather watch a movie or YT. 

So when I'm not crafting or watching TV I like to enter sweepstakes. I just recently joined a sweeps group and had my first real win!  
I won a $100 gift card, a grill and 4 packs of bratwurst from Yuengling!
How exciting is that!

For a lot of the contests you just enter your name and you're entered. 
There are also text (SMS) entries (which is how I won my first win).

There are also skill contests which may be a photo, essay, recipe or video. These are typically judged. 

So for one of the contests I entered, I had to post a photo 
 "Where do you go to get away? -Not physically, but Creatively".
It is a vote contest. 
So if you would like to help and vote on my pic, here is the link.
I am trying to win an iPad 4 mini.
You can vote daily until Sept. 21st. Thanks for your vote!

I also have 2 Etsy shops and a Square shop that I work on filling up with my handmade, digital and vintage items!

This is a little about what I do. 
What do you do when you're not crafting?
I would love to hear about it!
