Zazzle Me

By Cindy Beck

You're probably asking yourself, "What in the heck is a Zazzle?"

Don't look at me. I don't know. Maybe a cross between a zoo and a dazzle?

No, that would be a zoozle. Or maybe a doozle.

I'm not sure how they came up with the name, but I can tell you about the site. It's basically an online store that allows people to upload their own images onto products like greeting cards, clothing, and a whole slew of other fun stuff. In fact, it can be addicting. So ...

Hi. My name is Cindy, and I'm a Zazzler.

Just to be clear, I am not a cross between a zoo and a dazzler. Although, I have those moments where I wonder if I'm not living in a zoo. (Ahem ... that would be the fault of the hubster and the dogster, but don't tell them I said that!)

Anyway, that's another story. Or stories. Ones that you can find all over the archives of this blog. In the meantime, take a look at a few things you might be interested in at my Zazzle store.

And now that you've had a good look, go ahead ...

(Have you ever been a Zazzler? Or used an online print-on-demand store? Grab a sec and leave a comment about it.)

Seventh Generation Dish Soap Giveaway

Although wizards might have house elves to clean up after supper, we mortals end up washing dishes--unless we can convince our spouses to do the deed for us. And if we have to spend time in soapy water, we might as well have it smell good, so it can transport us off to a fantasy land at the same time it's removing food residue the dishes. Seventh Generation dish soaps can't actually take us anywhere, but when I tried them, the fragrances certainly were enjoyable. My favorites so far are Lemongrass and Clementine Zest, and Fresh Citrus and Ginger.

What Seventh Generation Says:
The power of scent is remarkable. It can have positive effects on your mood, reduce stress, and even help you sleep better. But not all scents are created equal. The fruit, floral and herbal ingredients used to create the scents in Seventh Generation’s new natural dish liquid come from fields, not factories.

Seventh Generation dish liquid contains only essential oils and botanical extracts, and delivers real cleaning power. Your tableware will be left fresh and ready to serve your next home cooked meal.

With authentic ingredients like lavender from the fields of Drome in the foothills of the Alps, clementines from sunny Calabria and lemons from the soils of Sicily, Seventh Generation natural dish liquid is free of unnecessary synthetic colors or chemically engineered scents.

Enter the “Nature Makes Perfect Scents” sweepstakes at seventhgeneration.com/scents and you can have the chance to take a trip for two to visit one of the sourcing sites of Seventh Generation natural dish liquid fragrance ingredients. Visit seventhgeneration.com/scents to learn more about each scent’s origin.
