    November is National Family Caregivers Month

    Taking care of a loved one starts with taking care of yourself.
    More than 65 million Americans are currently providing care for a loved one. ¹ But, sometimes caregivers neglect an important step: taking care of themselves.
    Protecting the caregiver's own well being, both mentally and physically, is an incredibly important step in the caring process. So in honor of National Family Caregivers and National Hospice Month, UnitedHealthcare has some steps to help make the transition to caregiver.

    Get out and enjoy time together:
    Go for a walk. Go to a movie. Feed the ducks at a park. Keeping active may relieve stress and can create positive new memories.

    Eat Healthy:
    A healthy diet can keep you sharp. Stock up on healthy snacks and prepare your own meals. Here are some simple (and delicious) recipes for you and your loved one.

    Educate yourself and your family:
    Particularly for those dealing with advanced illness or end-of-life situations, it's important to prepare yourself and your children. A new activity book, Scarlet Says Goodbye, is one tool to help educate young children with a loved one entering hospice care. The book can be downloaded for free at:
    Don't be afraid to ask for help:
    UnitedHealthcare understands that being a caregiver can be an emotionally and financially exhausting experience. UnitedHealthcare designed Solutions for Caregivers* specifically to help alleviate both of these issues. Visit to learn about all the resources available, including other great recipes and aid in developing a care plan, built specifically for your situation.

    Solutions for Caregivers assists in coordinating community and in-home resources. The final decision about your care arrangements must be made by you.

    Mamawj's #BzzAgent Coricidin HBP Cold & Flu Product Review

    Hi there ya'll :) I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year. I was a bit under the weather as was my hubby as well. Both of us with a head cold & the whole icky 9 yards of all the unpleasant symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, cough, and fever. Good thing I had the needed cold & flu medicine near by to use to aid in feeling better rather than having to run out to the store in the wee AM hours. That cold & flu  medicine I am speaking of is

    Coricidin HBP

    As a member of the BzzAgent Team    I  receive products and coupons, for free and then for being able to receive those items I then get to express & share my honest thoughts about the said products, through buzzing about it by word of mouth, by email. texting, land line calls and sharing the info with my fans, followers on my social networks of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and my favorite spot to spread the word, my blogspot. Just Buzz it!! LOL Easy for me to do because I love to talk ;)
    I was so happy when I joined the BzzAgent team & then got my first buzz item to review. I did not want to get sick in order to buzz about it LOL but I knew when I did need to use the product #Coricidin HBP that it would be a good fit for me because I have High Blood Pressure and I take medicines for my blood pressure to keep it under control. And alot of over the counter cold medicines will indeed raise your blood pressure when taken. And when your sick especially with a fever, your blood pressure may rise anyway despite your prescribed blood pressure meds that you take. And you need to take the cold medicines that provide a fever lowing agent & one that will not raise your blood pressure yet will help you feel better by lowering your fever, comforting you from the runny nose, sneezing, etc. So the complete line of different choices of the product Coricidin HBP  can give you that option. There are Five choices to pick from in the #Coricidin HBP line of #Cold #Medicines. So the next time you are in the retail stores go check them out, view each one & see which one will work best for you should you decide to try the product.
    Hubby & I both have #High Blood Pressure so the review box that #BzzAgent sent me in the Cold & Flu was a good fit for us both to take. I was sent a free 10-count box of #Cloricidin HBP Cold & Flu along with a few money saving $3 off coupons to use on ANY Coricidin HBP product.
    I chose to try & take my 2 tablets of the Cloricidin HBP Cold & Flu medicine before I layed down to sleep at night. And I did so an hour before I was to lay down, in hopes to let it dry up my runny nose & reduce sneezing during the night.
    Both my husband & I also have sleep apnea and we both use a #Cpap breathing machine at night. I thought I would never get use to having to wear a breathing mask capped over my nose & mouth to provide me the direct air that I need in order to get air into my lungs so that I do not stop breathing due to the sleep apnea. But I did & after you finally get the rest you need & oxygen to your brain that the aid of a Cpap can provide you, you soon just get use to wearing the mask & thankful for the use & results it provides you. With that being said, now back to the night time results that Coricidin HBP provided me with my cold symptoms while wearing my Cpap mask.
    I thought I would be removing my mask allot during the night hours having to blow my nose from running or sneezing nasal issues. But I have to honestly say that for six hours the product did dry me up and the battle of constantly blowing my nose from sneezing and runny nose did cease and let me get some rest. And it did not raise my blood pressure which i was very pleased with.
     My husband suffers also from ashma so when he gets a Cold or Flu, his symptoms are doubled with discomfort, one of which is body aches. He said he felt that the Coricidin HBP Cold & Flu medicine really helped with those discomforts.
      I feel allot better than I did and this product is one that I will buy and keep in my medicine cabinet.
    And I will share the money saving coupons with other family & friends that I know would appreciate the fact that this over the counter medince will not raise there blood pressure & relieve there Cold & Flu symptoms. From the product I reviewed from BzzAgent these are the symptoms it will help with:

    Coricidin® HBP Cold & Flu

    Provides powerful relief of the following symptoms:

    • Fever
    • Runny Nose
    • Sneezing
    • Body Aches, Pains and Headache

    #Giveaway Enter To #Win Friends two oversized cappuccino mugs & a picture frame In the 30 Days of #Friend's Trivia Challenge

                                      Remember this great group of Friends?
                    Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, & Ross
               I loved this TV show. Each character was so funny in there own way. I can recall so many funny episodes that I enjoyed watching. Hard to pick just one favorite episode. One that I remember that really made me laugh was the one about "The One With The Blackout"  in the first season where
    New York City is blacked out (due to a mishap on Mad About You). Chandler is trapped in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre. The rest of the gang hangs out at Monica and Rachel's apartment. Ugly Naked Guy lights a bunch of candles and has a slight accident. While trying to share his feelings with Rachel, Ross is attacked by a cat. While searching for the cat's owner, Rachel and Phoebe meet "the Weird Man", known in later episodes as Mr. Heckles. He tries to claim the cat, but it obviously isn't his. The cat turns out to belong to Paolo, an Italian hunk who lives in the building and doesn't speak much English.
             I loved that episode. I think Ross was my favorite character and the love he had for Rachel since high school made me want to continue watching each the show Season after season and I looked forward to enjoying each episode and all the changes they went through as Friends.

    How to Make a Pie Pan Candle

       I love candles, who doesn't right? I love ones that are shaped or decorated in some unique way. Or ones that match a theme to your decor. My kitchen theme is apples & roosters so I love to display & use candles in that room that have an apple or some type food scent. And my living room is a lodge theme so I like to use candles in there that both have an outdoors scent & theme.
      A few weeks ago my grandson & I along with his other nanny, took a trip to The Smokey Mountains and we stopped along the way to look inside Bass Pro shop. He just has to go inside Bass Pro for all his fly fishing lures that he loves to fish with. And as we looked throughout that awesome store which has so many pretty lodge themed decor items. I saw the cutest little cast iron skillets that were made into candles, ones that simulated a baked pie. They had other ones too like mugs that housed a hot cocoa candle. Oh, they smelled so good. And the prices were not that high, I think most were like $10+ depending on the sizes. I know what we will be on my Christmas wish list to send my hubby ;) this year.
       But until then, I thought I would see if I could mock one of my own with a DIY project. So that's just what I did!!! I had bought a tiny decor skillet in a yard sale for $1 (it's not cast iron but I'm still on the look out for some) this one is more of a metal skillet that had the two tone speckled paint on it, of blue with white specks. It has a handle and was so cute! As soon as I saw it I thought it would be great to try to make a pie themed candle to match my lodge themed decor.

      First, I had to melt down my candle wax. You can buy candle wax tarts that are scented and use those to melt down. I do sometimes buy the tarts, but most times I just buy the small scented votive candles and use those to burn down into my tart warmer. You can even save any candles you have that are burnt down and almost gone in jars & scrape those out of inside to use and melt down, or old pillar candles that are chipped, etc from yard sales or that may have gotten bent due to heat & stoarge. Many ideas to gain your scented candles besides buying them brand new to create ones like in this DIY project. So watch out for where you may see all the ideas mentioned. By melting tiny voltives, I know it gives me a free wick & tin plate to use again. Because those wicks that came out of the votives I melted have a tin plate attached to the bottom of the wick, which helps it stand up with it begins to firm up & the wax dries. You can buy the wicks in different sizes at your craft stores. Then just gather up the containers you will pour your wax into. I save glass jars with lids and create the cutest candles. You can melt down your old waxes by using a tart warm or a hot plate in which I just hover over the top of the hot plate (not really sitting my old metal pot on the eye which I have on the lowest heating setting) Today, I used both for this project. I bought this awesome tart warmer at Ben Franklin Crafts about 3yrs back & I love it!! I use it in my livingroom. It not only melts my tarts in the top little pan that provides a great scent, it has punched holes in the outside of the bottom cantainer that shine through it & onto the walls & cast such pretty design & light to enjoy.
    Now onto how I made the pie pan candle.
    Well, I wanted it to have 3 different scents (just like the ones you buy that are layered and give you separate scents as it burns down). So as my pie crust (bottom layer) I wanted that candle to be lighter in color. So I melted down slowly in my tart warmer, the scented candle pears which was just the remaining bottom portion of a glass candle. I simply took a knife a chunked out tiny pieces to melt down. And I slowly poured in that candle scent into my pan, and moving the pan around to spread it across the bottom of the pan and onto the upper sides very thin like until it was covering the whole pan but in a thin layer so that I will have enough rough for my 2nd scented layer. When you first begin pouring in your first layer, that's the time to add your wick with its tin plate attached (that I used from the votive candle I melted down) Now still on the 1st candle layer, to get the pressed crust outer trimmed look. While the wax is drying but still pliable, I took a pencil and pressed it up against the outer edge of the pans rim (to make it look like the crust of a pie) then I poured more of the same wax into the pan but directing it as I moved my pan about, so that it would flow into the crust shape & sort of fill up the indentations. After that dried pretty good, then I melted down my 2nd scent wax which was pumpkin scented tarts that were a bit darker in color. I noticed that as the wax melts for any candle color, that your color gets lighter and I wanted it darker in orange color so I melted in with the pumpkin scented wax a tiny piece of orange crayon. Then added that to the fill up the pie pan for my 2nd scent of pumpkin. Then I took an old candle that was a Carmel apple scent and crumbed it into tiny pieces and just dropped those onto of my pie as the strudel topping.

                 It plugs in & there is a low voltage light bulb inside the bottom that heats up the tiny tin plate on top that is removable. That is how I am melting (slowly) my tart wax to pour inside my pie pan to create my candle.
                        See, the top tart pie plate has a handle and is removable :)
                                    Now it is melting the wax slowly so I can pour it into my pan
       I also used the bottom cantainer of the tart warmer to just sit my pan on and heat it slowly to melt my wax (very low heat from the light bulb so it takes a while to melt)
                 Now I add my wick with tin plate to the center
                Then move around the wax to coat the bottom of the pan & the outter edges (for my crust look layer) It get's prettier...I promise
                 At this point, my first layer has dried but still pliable, so I added my second scented wax (for my filling of the pie which is a darker colored wax of orange)  And as you can see, I took a pencil and pushed against the sides of my first wax layer to create the crust and the ripples of the crust edges. Then , while all the wax was still pliable and not hardened yet, I dropped onto the top of the pie, crumbles of my 3rd wax scent to simulate a strudel crumb. (This was an old glade glass jar candle that you see in the picture inwich I took a knife and dug around in it until it was tiny crumbly pieces to drop on top of my pies top. )
    Let it set up firm and your done! I now have a 3 scented candle that I can burn and enjoy with the scents of Carmel apple, pumpkin, then pears. And It matches my lodge theme decor just great!
    I love black bears"can you tell?" LOL
                   A better look far away
                        A closer look with it lit :)  The scent is so nice!

          I do advise that if you try to make any type candles, do it with no children around, stay with it until your completely done and never get your wax to hot. I use the tart warmer that I already have to let my wax melt as usual and poured it in slowly and it was never extremely hot but wax is wax and is hurtful & harmful to burn if it gets on you so take caution and be safe. Because of the way I melted my wax down and created my pie pan candle, it was a slow process and took about an hour. So patience is needed when you take on the project.
              You can create tiny jar candles in the same way. Examples are below that I made from tiny jelly jars and they had the cutest lids! Those would make great gifts to put inside a gift basket. And~~do you see my ziplock bags in the photo , just behind the jars? Well, those are my wax pieces that I had used in my tart pan.. A great tip to remove a wax scent from your tart pan (if your top tart pan is removable like mine) is that after you have turned off your tart warmer, let the wax in the pan cool & set..then you place the pan tart in your freezer..when it is ice cold..take it out & just pop out that wax shape the same way you would pop out ice from an old type ice tray..They pop right out! Then store them in ziplock bags to savor there scents. And that way you can constantly change out the scent you want to enjoy.
              This weekend I plan on making wax dipped pine cones so maybe I will be back to share that craft as well :)
                        What type crafts do you enjoy making? I would love to hear about them so leave me a comment :) Or share ideas you have with me on candle making. Though I am in my work shop allot & do my hand painting and wood work then my seamstress work, this was my first attempt at candle making just using found objects, but I really enjoyed how they turned out. I seldom through anything out that I can reuse in some way and give it new life & charm. So I will be saving all the objects I come across like pans, jars , etc that I can use as candle items to create in someway. Have a great Fall day ya'll :) ~Julie

    Do you know what #Magnetic #Yard DeSigns are? See my #Discount Decorative Flags #Fall series #4 product review And find out where to buy one

            What kind of  House Number Display do you have visible for others to see from the road or entrance to your house? Are your house numbers big bright vivid to see in case someone is trying to find your address?  Are you limited to just displaying your house number to your homes front outside wall or on your mailbox? Usually the house numbers we display on our front homes outdoor exterior wall is so far away that it is hard to see them clearly, or our mailboxes are paired up with other mailboxes and someone trying to find your address is left that it?
          Well, I can tell you how to display your house number is the prettiest , easiest way ever imagined. And you do not have to be limited to displaying the number to just your outdoor exterior wall or mailbox.
               Why not display your house number by your driveway, by your porch entrance, in flower pots, in your flower garden beds, under a big oak tree in your yard amongst your lazy lounge chairs, or maybe by your outdoor pool, or country side barn. All those ideas and more are possible for displaying your house number on beautiful #Magnetic #Yard-DeSigns  which are magnetic designs that simply attach magnetically to a Yard DeSigns Stake that you can plant (push) into the ground surface anywhere like dirt, rocks, flower pots etc. Once you buy the Stake (Yard Design stake) that houses the magnetic signs then you simply interchange your signs that go onto the stake with lots of different themes in those designs to pick from found for purchase at Discount Decorative Flags. Each sign (#magnetic Yard-DeSigns comes with two sheets of self stick numbers that you place on the lower section of the design. You can now let others know your house number by displaying it almost anywhere and the many choices in designs that Discount Decorative Flags can offer you is just unreal in beauty for all seasons etc. A great way to beautify your outdoors while directing others to your address. You can decorate with designs like Christmas, Americana, beach themes, apples, spring, birthday cake, flowers, birds, Easter, summer themes, winter themes, snowmen, golf clubs, flip flops, thanksgiving, and so many more designs to choose from.
             I was blessed by receiving this colorful #Fall design that #Discount Decorative Flags let me choose to review for there #Fall items they can over you at the lowest priced place found online or world wide web. Thank you Mike at Discount Decorative Flags :) See you soon for the Holiday season when I shop for Christmas de-signs to house my lovely sturdy stake.
              I love this Fall design in magnetic yard de-signs. They also kindly sent me the Stake that I need to use it with. I will not ever have to buy but the one stake because all I do when I want to change out my design is take off the magnetic design sheet and add another that I bought in order to change my look of display. The majority of the designs that are sold have an opaque square at the bottom that is lighter than the over all design, so that when you place your self adhesive letters on to it, you see them clearly. The numbers are black which is the perfect color to really make them pop! And stand out visually.

               Look at        
    The design I was able to choose in the #Fall de-signs magnetic de-signs (this design is called harvest pumpkin 74002 in yard design) Just one of the many fall designs they have to choose from. If you see that this design is out of stock don't worry because not only do you have plenty more to choose from, they are always adding new designs every day to there over 2,000 designs to pick from in all there items like Large House Flags, mini garden flags, mail box covers magnetic mail box covers & so much more.  I think my pumpkin design I choose will take me right up Christmas before I change over to another design. Because the pumpkins shout out harvest time and work well for the fall days of Halloween, thanksgiving etc. And my living room is Lodge theme (everything black bears that I love lol) and I plan on looking for a mini garden flag that will fit my lodge theme in my living room and place the flag by front ( INDOOR Entrance) by putting it into a planter filled with tiny river rocks and displaying it to match my theme and add to my lodge decor) I'm sure they have a bear, deer or some nature design I will like to match. I see that idea all the time inside doctors offices to welcome the visitors and add decor charm to the place. So it just goes to show you that the lovely items they sell at Discount Decorative Flags can be enjoyed other places besides...outdoors..
        Ok...,now back to my product review of  #Fall de-signs magnetic de-signs
           Every thing I received for product review:
    The ground stake
    The magnetic design I was able to choose
    2 sheets of black self adhesive numbers
    direction sheet
                                                         Numbers Placed on the magnetic de-sign
         Still curious about how they look outside & where would you use them?
     Come on then, follow me and I will show you my idea of decorative placement :)
                         This is my front entrance and my front porch and besides my mailbox at the road (way down the hill and far away from my front home) I only had metal house numbers attached to my front porch side hand rail, which was almost hard to see from the road.
                                    Before (if you try to peak behind my peach tree then you will barely see the off white metal house number 415 running vertically down the hand rail) very hard to see from the road.
    Now with my Fall decorative display that I housed under my peach tree, you can clearly see a very pretty Stake that has my pumpkin yard de-sign displayed inside a flower pot that has my house numbers on it in vivid black numbers. And I could just as easily stake the sign into the dirt there or anywhere I choose, or move my flower pot anywhere so the sign is displayed in it as done here.
