My first Business 2 Blogger Giveaway!!!!!! Also titled (you know me and my alternate titles) The wandering tale of the first giveaway)

Once Upon a Time there was a humble blogger who wanted to be super cool and be able to have giveaways and have followers and stuff. This my friends is where the story begins............


It all started with these guys......

Business 2 Blogger








and they helped me find these guys.............













and then they sent me this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





and then - as any good story goes - we hit a snag




Because - guess what - these are really awesome little organizational things that have magnets on the back to go on your medicine cabinet in your bathroom. Well - I don't have a medicine cabinet in my bathroom (really wish I did by the way). In fact - there is not a medicine cabinet in my whole house! Can I just go ahead and pause here and say that I was freaking out a little bit on the inside - ok - ask my husband on the outside also.

Then - as all good stories go - we found the solution.......

I don't know about you but my kitchen is the hub of all things in my house and can become quite the black hole of all things lost. At my Mom's suggestion - I put two of the cosmetic organizers (that can obviously be used for just about anything) on my fridge. In them I put from left to right:
(liquid gold eye drops - read $$$$$$ eye drops for my 8 year old, my shuffle that keeps getting lost, my current sharpie, nail files, two good school homework pencils, a good Mommy pen, and Mommy lip stuff.)
Seems simple but I tell you what - it is really great to know where those things are!!!!!


I didn't really have anything else to put on my fridge so I went in search of another area in my house. I am sure that my children were wondering what was going on with Mommy who was walking around the house mumbling something crazy about the nice people at magnapods
and what kind of a world did we live in where we didn't own one medicine cabinet and so on and so forth when I remembered - uh Holly - you are a scrapbooker - hello? Remember? That means lots of little tiny stuff!!!!!! Hooray!!!!!



Right next to my chair is - wonder of all wonders - a METAL file cabinet!!!! Sweet Sarah Jessica Parker that was relief! Anyway - I put my latest cute pen in the toothbrush holder and all of my brads in the last cosmetic case and I am LOVING it - really loving it! I have decided that I need several more and completely revamp my crop corner!

Anyway - LONG story short - there you have it folks - my first review of what I think is a very handy product EVEN if you don't have a medicine cabinet but I would say especially if you do have a medicine cabinet and - if you are still reading this post here is your reward -

A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My new buddy John at Magnapods is going to give you exactly what he gave me - a toothbrush holder and the cosmetic set. All you have to do is win my giveway!!!!!
Leave me a comment every time you tweet it, Facebook it, become a follower on the blog - join the Bowheads family - come on you know you want to, follow me on twitter, grab the Cupcake button, or blog about it yourself. So TONS of ways to enter.
Hope to see some comments soon so that we can have a happy ever after ending!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoo hoo! Those are super cute and I love the idea of other things because I don't have a metal medicine cabinet either...maybe you have opened a whole new market up for magnapods!

what a fab idea! Love that you used them on your fridge!

Mama B said...

Congratulations on your first review and being so creative with it's uses. I think it would work better in my craft area than in my cabinet!

Way to go girl! And seriously - we need to start an "I have no medicine cabinet in my house" club. How strange is that if you think about it?! Way to re-invent the product - smartypants.
