Based on an Inspirational True Story
Discover Your Inner Champion



New on Disney Blu-ray® Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere, and Digital HD
June 2nd


In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping them achieve their own American dream. 

CAST: Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves,” “The Untouchables”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence, “Prisoners”), Carlos Pratts (“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, “Out of the Fire”), Morgan Saylor (TV’s Homeland,” “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”).

Mother's Day Craft! - A Modge Podged photo flower pot!


Here is a fun and super easy craft for the kids to make for Mother's Day! A Modge Podged photo flower pot! Once done, add a plant and you are all set!


What you will need:
  • 10-20 photos (depending on the size of pot) printed in black and white on paper.   I just took some pictures into Microsoft word and re-sized them all onto about 3 pages and then cut them out.
  • Terra Cotta Pot and base (cost approx. $2)
  • Modge Podge ($6.00 a bottle)
  • Foam Brushes ($.89 for a 4 pack)
  • Ribbon roll ($2)
If you don't want to purchase Modge Podge, you can make your own using Elmer's glue.  I am not sure how it would work compared to the Modge Podge, but a cheaper alternative.   To get started, lay out old newspapers on your work surface so you don't get the glue everywhere!   I also poured the Modge Podge into paper plates/bowls to make it easier for the kids to use!

Take a foam brush and brush the Modge Podge on the section of the pot you are working on, then place on photos.  Feel free to layer, over-lap, etc.   Apply more Modge Podge as needed on areas that are drying out or needed.  Once all the photos are on the pot, apply a couple more coats of Modge Podge to seal it!

Cut ribbon so it is long enough to wrap around rim of pot.  Brush the Modge Podge on the rim,  lightly push ribbon on the Modge Podge and then tie it!

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Book 1) #Kindle Price: $1.99 #PercyJackson


The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Book 1) Kindle Price: $1.99


Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

First book in the 2nd Percy series is $1.99 too!


The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, Book 1) Kindle Price: $1.99

After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own: Seven half-bloods shall answer the call, To storm or fire the world must fall. An oath to keep with a final breath, And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death. Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

The baby swaddle with a NASA pedigree @littlelotusbaby #LittleLotusKickstarter #GIVEAWAY


Little Lotus is a revolutionary line of baby products, including a swaddle, sleeping bag and blanket made with a proprietary phase change material that keeps infants at an optimal temperature, both storing and releasing heat as needed to keep baby cozy and comfortable. The swaddle uses a material initially designed for NASA space suits that continually cools and warms to keep babies at the perfect temperature.

The Little Lotus swaddle was inspired by the Embrace Warmer, the low-cost baby warmer responsible for helping 150,000+ preterm babies worldwide.

Three million babies die every year in the first 28 days of life, according to the World Health Organization. Put in starker terms: one baby dies every six minutes. But what’s more shocking? Many of these deaths are preventable.

TED speaker Jane Chen invented the Embrace infant warmer seven years ago in a Stanford University classroom with her classmates, including co-founder Rahul Panicker. Today, it has received the support and attention of both Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and President Obama.

Little Lotus will operate on a Toms Shoes-inspired model: for every US product sold, a baby will be helped by the Embrace warmer in a developing country, so that new parents can keep their babies cozy, and also extend a “warm embrace” to babies all over the world.  The print of the Little Lotus baby products is inspired by the Touch our Future artwork, and features the hand tracings of mothers and babies in developing countries helped by the Embrace infant warmers.


“With this product, we’ll be able to keep babies comfortable in a way that we couldn’t before,” says Chen. “A mother, no matter how impoverished, will do anything to save her child. It is this love that powers our technology, and we’re going to use our supporters’ love to help the most vulnerable babies on Earth.”

Back this project on Kickstarter!

Three lucky winners (US Only)will each win a Little Lotus swaddles, sleeping bags or blankets (product to be determined by Little Lotus) a retail value of $450. WINNERS WILL RECEIVE THEIR GIFTS in September. We know, it’s a long time to wait! This product line is in the very earliest stages of production, with tons of love, enormous care, and artistic creativity put into each item. Trust us, it’s worth the wait. 

Please wait for the Rafflecopter to load:

Disclosure:  I did not receive anything in exchange for this post.  Little Lotus is responsible for handling fulfillment in September to the winners
