WIN a Family Pass to Shipwrecked Treasure Museum in Branson OR an Authentic Pirate-Era Coin! (Hello Spring Giveaway Hop)

WIN a Family Pass to Shipwrecked Treasure Museum in Branson OR an Authentic Pirate-Era Coin! (Hello Spring Giveaway Hop)

If you saw my post about Shipwrecked Treasure Museum in Branson, MO last week, you’re probably considering checking it out the next time you’re in town. Good news! It’s giveaway hop day and I get to treat one of you to a Family Pass that will get 2 adults and 2 children into the museum!



If you won’t be visiting Branson in 2020, don’t worry, we have a giveaway option for you, too! One lucky winner will get an authentic pirate-era coin that is from between 1400-1600 AD!


The museum’s gift shop has all kinds of cool coins recovered from shipwrecks, so one of you will be receiving a coin that was underwater for at least 400 years!!


PLEASE NOTE that there are two DIFFERENT giveaway options below! The first one is to win the Family Pass to the museum, the second is for the pirate-era shipwreck coin. The family pass is only good in 2020 and will have the winner’s name on it, so please only enter that giveaway if you can make it to Branson this year to use the pass. If you want to gift it to a family member or friend that you know will be in Branson this year, I am happy to put their name on it when you win, but it can NOT be sold or otherwise transferred once you give me the name to put on it.

You are totally welcome to enter both giveaways, I just want to make sure the museum pass goes to someone who can actually use it!

Both giveaways are open to US residents ages 18+. In the highly unlikely event that the same winner is drawn at random for both giveaways, they will get to choose one prize and a new winner will be drawn for the other. Winners will be contacted via the email they provide in the Rafflecopter form and will have 48 hours to reply to the email to end their prize. Giveaway start at 12:01 am on March 17th and ends at 11:59 pm on March 31st. You can return daily for extra entries into both giveaways.

Win 2 Copies of “The Light Within” CD – Cat’s Meow Giveaway Hop

Win 2 Copies of “The Light Within” CD – Cat’s Meow Giveaway Hop


It’s giveaway time! It’s been a while since I’ve done one, so I’m excited about it.

A friend recently approached me about helping him get the word out about his CD, “The Light Within.” Although it is designed to be a lullabye CD, I love to put it on when I’m stressed. The music is sweet and soft and light, perfect for helping kids settle down for bedtime or playing on in the car when you’ve had a stressful day.

The title song is one of my favorites:


We thought it would be fun to give the winner two copies – one to keep and one to share with a friend or loved one. It would be a perfect gift for a new mom or anyone you know who could use some soothing music!

You can visit for more info, samples of songs, and a super cute animated video for The Light Within.

“The Light Within” CD is also available on Amazon, or you can purchase MP3s on CD Baby.


This giveaway is open to US residents 18 and older. You can do as many entries as you would like – the first one can be completed once a day to increase your chances of winning. The winner can choose physicals CD or codes for digital versions.

Awesome New Coloring & Dot-to-Dot books for Adults! {Groovy Giveaways Giveaway Hop – Ends 9/7 US}

Awesome New Coloring & Dot-to-Dot books for Adults! {Groovy Giveaways Giveaway Hop – Ends 9/7 US}


Coloring books for adults have been a HUGE trend this year, and I have some awesome new ones to share with you guys, plus what I think will be the next big trend alongside them: dot-to-dot books for adults! Check them out below, and then enter to win your favorite down at the bottom of the post! (WOOHOO!)


Coloring Bird Mandalas* by Wendy Piersall is filled with 30 beautiful bird themed circular designs to color! There’s a nice variety of detail level, so some will take a lot longer to color than others, and the designs range from super cute to regal and elegant. The designs are only printed on one side of the (nice quality, semi-thick) paper, so you don’t have to worry about colors bleeding through. I love the book size – 7.3 x 9 inches – which makes it big enough to have room to work, but small and enough to take with you on travels or daily adventures.


I think I’ll be coloring this one next – just gotta pick out some great greens for the leaves!




Love this little guy’s face!


I wanted to experiment with how much I could do using just one colored pencil – spent about an hour on this guy so far! You could definitely take this book and just a couple of pencils in your carry-on and be entertained for a multi-hour fight!

(If you enjoy this post, be sure to check out my previous post featuring Wendy Piercell’s other coloring books for adults!)

Coloring Flower Mandala Postcards takes some of the beautiful floral designs from Wendy Piersall’s Coloring Flower Mandalas book and offers them up in postcard form! You can either create a work of art to send to a friend, or mail these out blank so that the recipient can have all the fun!

There’s plenty of room on the back to write your message, or maybe do some fun little doodles!


I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with Calming Dot-to-Dot  by Emily Wallis, but after doing one puzzle I was HOOKED. These things are so addicting, y’all! There’s something zen about just following the numbers nd watching a picture emerge! (Part of the fun is the mystery of what the image will become, so I didn’t want to post too many pics of the finished results!)


The book contains 30 different dot-to-dot puzzles, each with 400 dots to connect. I had so much fun with this book that I ended up ordering another dot-to-dot book for adults on Amazon. Since there weren’t any others from the same author or publisher, I went with another one that looked good, but ended up liking it a lot less, which made me appreciate this one even more! The other one I ordered had 1000+ dots per page, which led to a lot of crowded areas where it was hard to see numbers through lines you’d already drawn. It made me appreciate how the puzzles in Calming Dot-to-Dot are intricate enough to take quite a while to complete (the book says they take around 15 min each, but I found that most took me around 30-60 min to finish.), but they’re not so crazy complicated that you get lost trying to find the next number. I saw some reviews on Amazon that complained that the numbers were too tiny, but I didn’t personally have any trouble seeing them, and I think that if they were any larger it woud interfere with the appearance of the picture. I’ll DEFINITEY be watching for future books like this one!


It would be mean of me to show you these awesome books and not share the fun! The publisher has been kind enough to offer one of you the book of your choice from the three featured in this post! Which one will you pick if you win? I know – tough choice!
