Creating Custom Books for the Holidays? Blurb’s Book Making Boot Camp Makes It Easy!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**

It could be just me, but I think it’s much easier to learn how to do something by watching a video (even it is’s a short one). For instance, making your own custom book seems like it would be really complicated, but then you watch a video walking you through it and it becomes pretty understandable. Here’s a quick video from Blurb (less than 3 minutes) that quickly walks you through publishing your own book using their BookSmart tool—sort of a book making boot camp. Save 20% on photobooks which is great news if you’re thinking ahead to the holidays and making a gift to send. Special offer for new customers only. Save 25% on photobooks… even better for those of you who are new to Blurb books. Just don’t wait because these deals end October 31st.

Knife Sharpener Review and Hot Amazon Price

Knife Sharpener

Disclaimer I was given Priority Chef Knife Sharpener for reviewing purposes.  No monetary compensation was given and all opinions are mine and truthful to the experiences in my kitchen. The links in this post are affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

I seem to always randomly find knifes on clearance and pick them up.  Over time my basket of knives seems to have dulled out!! I jumped at the chance to get to review this ->Priority Chef Knife Sharpener!! Up until the week the sharpener I had never used one before.  Typically I just buy new knives (on clearance but still not completely frugal or feasible) and have several knives that were ready to be tested.  I love how clearly it is marked for fine or coarse knives.  The act of sharpening the knives only took minutes.   I was worried there would be a mess but there wasn’t.  I did wash the knife as it had little shavings on it but I really expected more to appear.  

Plus its on sale right now on Amazon!! Head on over -> here to grab yours for only $17.95 which is normally $39.99 making it 55% off the regular price! This price may change so be sure to hurry and confirm the price at final check out! This will make a great gift for the holidays especially for someone who loves to hunt and fish!

My cousin pinned this recipe from 2 Bees in a Pod and I knew we had to try them!  Last night we whipped up the -> Lemon Muffins for 1PPV so it was the perfect time to make these ones. I love how easy they were to make my five year odl did the mixing for both batches for me!! I used my Grazia Silicone Muffin Pan to make the muffins.
