I wanted to share something pretty cool with you guys today!
A while ago, my brother and brother-in-law joined forces and started their own online business!
Let’s call them… Adam and Steven. because that’s their names.
See, Adam and Steven launched a website called Story Playground which allows people to make their own virtual stories with their own pictures, their own words, and even use their own voice! This video will give you the general idea:
In my family, Story Playground has been used to create fun, lighthearted stories, announce pregnancies, record original family songs, and even as a gift!
So, Father’s Day is coming up. Imagine how excited your Dad might be to get an email that says you made a story just for him… he clicks the link and he’s able to see your pictures and hear your voice. Maybe your voice will be telling him all your favorite childhood memories. Or maybe your voice will be telling him all the things you love about him. Or you could record other people’s voices saying hi to your Dad. The possibilities are endless.
Story Playground has a spring sale going on! There are two parts:
1) New users that sign up during the month of May will receive enough dragon gold credit to make their first book free! The credit can be redeemed at any time.
2) For the month of May, one purchase per customer is eligible for the half-off deal. Just enter the promo code P-Spring50 at checkout.
**I realize May is almost over, but you can also like them on Facebook to stay updated on all their promotions!**
Click here for some tutorial videos of how to use the website (how to create a book, how to purchase dragon gold, etc.).
And here’s something EVEN MORE SPECIAL!
THE FIRST TEN PEOPLE who log into Story Playground and sign up for a free account AND leave a comment saying you did so, with your email address, those ten people will receive a virtual copy of the book I created, “So, You Think You Know Me” (a little random-facts-about-me thing).
Get to it! And let me know what you think!
(some of you may have seen this picture on instagram. or FB. also, prepare for a picture overload.)
The drive up to Idaho City took about an hour….
and when we got there, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was! The resort has been around for years (Mo remembers going there when he was 9!) but they underwent a recent renovation and the whole place looks amazing.
And, being Memorial Day, it was only fitting that we should wander through Idaho City’s
creepy quaint cemetery.
What did you do for your holiday weekend?
ps. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway from yesterday!
I love your ability to start and finish projects.
I love that you’re a man of your word.
I love how you’ll pause and ask if I got a picture before you start eating your ___(fill in the blank with a dessert/baked good/pastry)___.
I love your tan lines.
It means you’ve been on your bike all summer.
I love how you analyze things.
It means you don’t make decisions lightly (and for that reason, I ‘m so flattered you picked me).
I love how laid-back you are.
It means less stress in life and easy to please.
Except that you’re really hard to shop for, which we’ve already established.
I love how supportive and proud you are of me.
I love how happy we are when we’re together. and how you make me laugh.
I especially love the man you are and trying to become.
Please excuse my absence.
I’ve been reuniting with my family this week.
And working the night shift.
But I’ll talk about that some other time.
I made wee little cupcakes.
for dessert night.
it’s become somewhat of an annual tradition now.
I decided to go with funfetti cake with rainbow chip icing.
The makings of a perfect birthday cake.
And check out the rest of her blog while you’re at it, she’s one of those cool moms the kids bring their friends over to meet.
I hope you enjoy your special day!
And I hope you know being a mom x 11 means you get 11 x the love other moms get.
