Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day ~ New Clip

how to avoid bad day

OH MY GOODNESS!  I definitely foresee some Depends in our future for sitting through this movie!  We are so stinkin’ excited to go see this movie as a family!  Okay, so we laugh over everything and it looks like this movie will give us plenty of reasons to laugh until we cry LOL   We have a  hilarious new spot and fun shareable images from ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY available! 

From Disney:

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY opens in theaters October 10th!

3 Winners of a $50 Visa Gift Card

I am so excited to bring you another great giveaway!  There will be 3 winners of a $50 Visa gift card in this one PLUS it is open word-wide.

I love to rent cars. It’s always exciting to drive a new car. Usually when you rent a car – it’s because you are on vacation. You need a vehicle to get you to all the fun places you want to visit.

Or maybe you need to rent a car because of the high cost of airline tickets, it can be much more affordable to rent a car for a week and drive to your destination.

If you are looking for a great rate on a rental car, visit NationalTravelDeals.com. They have better rates than the likes of Priceline or Expedia most all of the time! You will rent the same car but pay less money! That means more money to spend on your vacation! Plus they search all the major rental car companies so you don’t have to. You will see the best price available in just a few seconds!

national travel deals

National Travel Deals is chosen by more and more travelers each year because of their ability to also provide the ultimate option – The NTD Safeguard Plus. Choose this option when booking your next rental car to avoid paying a cancellation fee in the event that your travel plans should change. They will also cover part of your deductible in the unfortunate event of an accident or minor incidents such as windshield or tire damage. It’s nice to have that extra piece of mind.

They are based in the US but you can rent cars in 125 Countries – 17,000 locations! You also receive an automatic 5% less on pricing than their supplied rates.

Plus they support charity! When you rent a car from NationalTravelDeals.com, you’ll not only be driving around in a great car that you secured for a great rate (in most cases the best rate), but you’ll also be playing your part in giving back. National Travel Deals is donating $1.00 from every single vehicle reservation to Moffitt Cancer Center (Tampa, Florida) in 2014.

I even have a coupon code for you! Until the end of August you can save an additional 5% when you visit their Twitter Page for the code. Next time you need to rent a car, make sure you visit NationalTravelDeals.com for an excellent rate!

Adding A Great Catalog Cover Image In Shop Your Way

Adding A Great Catalog Cover Image In Shop Your Way

Here you are. You have a great catalog full of awesome products, but how do you convey how awesome your catalog is to your readers and clients? With a great cover image, of course! Creating a great cover image is going to become second nature before long and you’ll wonder why you dreaded it in the first place. I really have so much fun creating my cover images! You can use any image that is yours or use one of the products from inside the catalog. I have used my children, myself, and product images to make my catalog covers. You can make them as simple or elaborate as you like. I like to use PicMonkey to personalize my cover images. It is free and super easy to use.  One thing you have to be sure of is that your image is at least 900 X 450 pixels in size.  Other than that, just get to creating!

SYW adding catalog cover

 

To get started adding your fabulous cover to your catalog just follow these super simple steps:

  1. Click on “Catalogs” at the top of you SYW home page
  2. Click on “Your Catalogs”
  3. Click on the catalog you want to add the cover to
  4. Click on “Visual” view

Adding your catalog cover in the “Visual” view will cause SYW to prompt you to tag your items in your catalog, which is the next step in creating your catalog :)  You can take a look at my catalogs if you want some ideas on how to personalize your cover photos.
