Fulcrum Gallery Has Artwork For Almost Any Wall In Your House

      I have discovered a great way to shop for artwork for your home. Fulcrum Gallery is an online store that sells artwork for almost any taste. They have a wide selection of framed art, canvas prints, and posters at affordable prices. You can choose to have them frame your selection or order the print to put in your own frame. Fulcrum Gallery makes it easy to bring art to your walls. The headings on their home page allows you to look at the art by styles, rooms, subjects, artists, or size. You can also search by color to make a perfect match for your wall.

I was allowed to choose a product from their website and the variety was so much that I had a hard time deciding. I found the abstract category  was where I wanted to select my print from. When I looked through the abstract category, I found the circle art was just what I wanted for my selection. I was then able to narrow my selection down to size and color with the filters on their website. I wanted a large print in either purple or brown. I finally decided on the print above and I knew that it would be perfect for my wall. I was then able to customize my print. I was able to choose my art in print, laminate, canvas, or framed. I chose my print in laminate and the size is 37" X 37". This print is very large as in the photo below, it is on my dinning room table.

The print arrived within a week after I ordered it. I was very pleased with the way it look. The only thing I would change is the way it was sent to me. I ordered my print without a frame so it came rolled up in a tube shaped box and I had to flatted it out with heavy books. I choose not to frame it because I had a different use for the print. As a blogger I am always looking for new ways to display my work. I knew I would be able to wipe the laminate.So I knew my selection would be perfect for backdrops.

Fulcrum Gallery is my new place to go to when I need art. 

Go take a look and tell me what  print is your favorite. Do you need artwork for your walls?

KITCHEN KNIGHT Digital Food Thermometer Is A Must For Cooking Meat

 I don't allow my family to eat meat unless my husband cooks it. Too many people get sick from under cooked meat. Under cooked meat can have dangerous bacteria like Listeria, E Coli. and Salmonella in it. Cooking the meat to a proper temperature is the only way to kill these bacteria. My husband knows that using a thermometer to check the temperature of the meat is the only way to fight these bacteria. Too many people think that they can tell if the meat is cooked properly by sight but taking the temperature of the meat is the only way to tell if the meat is safe to eat. Don't take risks- get a Kitchen Knight Digital Food thermometer to make sure your meat has reach a safe temperature before serving it to your family.

The  Kitchen Knight SD2810W Digital Food Thermometer makes cooking meat easy with its large easy to read numbers. This thermometer is ideal for grilling too. You simply stick in in your meat and press the on button. It will quickly tell you the temperature of your meat. The Kitchen Night has a temperature range of -58 F to 572 F making it great to use for other things like making yogurt or candy. I love that this product is waterproof too. You can also check the temperature of your refrigerator with the accurate quick read probe of the thermometer.

My church had a barbecue today and the Kitchen Knight thermometer came it handy to make sure the meat was safe to eat. The last thing our church needed was a bunch of people getting sick from under cooked meat. My husband was able to quickly take the temperature of the burgers with the Kitchen Knight thermometer.

The Rockee Toothbrush (by VioLight) Wobbles, Spins But Never Tips. + Giveaway

  My boys love brushing their teeth and always cooperate with me when it is tooth brushing time. When kids have a toothbrush that looks cool that makes all the difference is getting them to brush their teeth. My 6 year old gets excited when the dentist gives him a new toothbrush and has to try it out as soon as we get home from the dentist.

   The Rockee Toothbrush by Violight is a toothbrush that makes brushing fun for kids. This toothbrush not only looks cool but it also is fun to play with. Do you remember those play people that wobbled  but never fell over? The Rockee toothbrush does the same, it wobbles and spins but it never tips over. For kids that means fun but for parents that means a whole lot more. Since the Rockee never tips over that saves you time from cleaning toothpaste off the counter. The toothbrush stays clean also as the top never touches the counter either. It dries fast and there is no need for a storage cup to hold it. You know how gross those cups can get from holding wet toothbrushes.

  The Rockee comes with two extra brush heads so your child can enjoy the toothbrush for a long time. It also comes in many colors and animal prints. The toothbrush is easy for little ones to hold, making them want to brush their teeth. So now your child can have fun brushing their teeth. The Rockee toothbrush will have your child want to brush their teeth.

 Here is a video that I made showing the Rockee in action. My He tried to get it to fall over but it would not tip over.

The Rockee will bring a smile to your child's face. This make great gifts for children of all ages too. My 14 year old son enjoyed the Rockee toothbrush also.

When Life Hands You Pears Make Caramel Pear Crisp

I had a bunch of pears that were ripe and I did not want them to go to waste. I was having guests over for dinner and I wanted to make a dessert. I did not want to make a plain fruit crisp so I decided to sweeten the fruit with caramel sauce. The caramel sauce paired wonderfully with the pears and made a delicious dessert. This crisp was simple to make and if you don't have pears, apples would taste great too. I also have a recipe for homemade caramel sauce that you make in the slow cooker.

                                             Caramel Pear Crisp

                             8 pears
                                         1/4 cup apple juice
                                         1/2 cup caramel sauce
                                          1 pouch sugar cookie mix
                                           1/2 cup butter, soften

                                     Oven 400 degrees
                               1. Pour the apple juice in a large bowl, this will keep the pears from browning
                                   while you are cutting into pieces.Peel the pears and cut them into bite size

                               2.  Place the pears into the apple juice and stir well. Microwave the caramel
                                     sauce for about 30 seconds to soften. Then stir into pears, coating well.
                                3. Place the pears in a large baking dish.

                                4. Combine the cookie mix and soften butter until well mixed. I like to use
                                     my food processor for this step, to make it easier.

                                5. Crumble the cookie topping all over the pears and bake for 30-45
                                      minutes, until topping is lightly brown.

                                6. Serve with whip cream or vanilla ice cream on top. Drizzle with
                                   caramel sauce.
