Back to School with Crayola And a Giveaway #BTS

11th August 2015


It’s that time of year again – Back to School! (Insert my children’s moaning and groaning here).

The BEST part about Back to School time for me, is buying all the school supplies. I find that the kids start to get excited about getting organized and ready for school when we pick up the school supplies – at least the little one does. Personally, I love it so much that I often buy too much so that I can hide some for myself. I make sure to pick up all the basics and some of the fun stuff too, and when it comes to the fun stuff, I always choose Crayola products. From the first package of crayons I bought as a new mom for my little guy, until now, with two kids who love to paint and draw and create, I have always preferred Crayola. It’s just one of those brands that people trust for quality, including myself – they call it the Crayola Difference.

This is why I was very excited to become part of the Crayola blogger program – me and the brood are big fans. Recently, they sent us a box of goodies for back to school, and we were super excited to check out all their new products and those products that are new to us. Our little eight year old artist got right to it immediately and picked her four favourite products – the Glitter markers, Metallic markers, Watercolour pencils and the scented PowerLines Markers.


So to celebrate Back to School (YES I’m celebrating – Mommy needs some alone time!), I have a fab Crayola giveaway!! One lucky winner will win a great $50 package that includes:


  • 24 ct crayons

Staples Giveaway!

30th August 2011

When I was in school, one hundred years ago (yes, I’m THAT old), I LOVED back to school shopping, especially for school supplies. I looked forward to it for weeks – didn’t everyone? I still find myself shopping for office supplies, because it brings me immense joy. Thankfully, I now have kids and a seven year old who needs school supplies for school, and I’m super happy about it.

We’ve been shopping at Staples for years, ever since it opened here. Staples is where we go to pick up all things office and school related. They may or may not know me by name at this point.

Hi, My name is Maria and I’m addicted to school supplies.

Hi Maria.

I like Staples because there are tons of options to choose from, and I like my options. Staples is great too because they have the BEST PRICE GUARANTEE right now – see a lower price anywhere else during the back-to-school season and Staples will match it.

That’s a WIN in my book.


I have a $50 gift card for one lucky winner!!
