Vivid Landscapes greeting cards [review]

There are plenty of holidays coming up, so be prepared and grab some greeting cards from Vivid Landscapes.

Vivid Landscapes is an Etsy shop run by Jeanette, a mother of nine children and 20 grand children. That's a lot of kids! An artist all her life, she decided to try colored pencils because they're easy to pick up and put down. Working with them helped take her mind off my troubles and find peace.

Jeanette paints in oils, colored pencil, acrylics, and alcohol inks on tiles. She also does a lot of colored pencil cards, and makes prints of them - a couple of my favorites are shown below!

etsy.com/shop/VividLandscapes

The card above is the depiction of a little fishing spot at the side of a mountain rod where Jeanette's son-in-law took her on a summer day. It actually reminds me of a river spot in a neighborhood I used to live in. Flowing water and lots of green foliage and trees.

As you can probably tell, Jeanette loves the outdoors with its changing seasons, light, and shadows, as well as the peace of being in nature. She's learned she doesn't need to take long trips to find beauty - it's close at home. The Millard county skies in Utah are an asset in the desert country. If we take the time to look around us, chances are we'll find beauty close to home too.

With the order of a card you'll receive a print on folded card stock with a white envelope. And they're a nice size too - a bit larger than 5" x 8". And they're blank so you can write whatever you want. Whether it's for a loved one or a friend, these cards will bring peace and joy.

In addition to the usual Vivid Landscapes art, custom work is accepted and encouraged. Feel free to contact Jeanette if you have a scene, place, person, or animal that you would like her to draw.

Get a good night's sleep with Mediflow's gel foam pillow [giveaway]

Last year I posted a Mediflow review and giveaway, and now we're back with another pillow to give away!

Our neck and heads deserve support and comfort. After all, we spend a third of our life in bed so we might as well pamper ourselves.

Chances are your pillow has lost its shape and needs to be replaced. I had the pleasure of trying the gel foam waterbase pillow, clinically shown to improve the quality of your sleep. Mediflow helps you sleep unlike any other pillow on the market.


Water in a pillow? That's an unusual thing. The Mediflow pillow has a soft, hypoallergenic fiber filling which is supported by a water pouch. If you need a pillow for neck pain, the pillow has been clinically shown to reduce tossing and turning.


You can easily add water to the bladder and adjust the support level to get the comfort level that's right for you. It's pretty cool, and does not have the sloshing effect that a waterbed does thankfully. Whether you prefer soft, medium, or firm comfort, you can customize it to your liking.

Other features:
  • Cool gel foam top layer
  • Ventilated to stay cool all night long
  • Special foam spring center to maintain support
  • Adjustable water base provides adjustability to any level of support

So who wants a pillow?! The folks at Mediflow have been gracious enough to offer up a gel foam waterbase pillow ($70 value) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Moeggenborg Sugar Bush goat milk soap [giveaway]

Awhile back my wife got a couple bars of homemade soap from a farmer's market in the pure state of Michigan, and now we're jumping back on the Midwestern natural soap train.

Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is run by Mary and her family "in the country" in Michigan, offering a variety of unique gifts. Together they make soap (of course), candles, and personalized Christmas stockings. If you like treats, they also make fudge, dip mixes, and baked goods.

Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is a farm family who enjoys working together to make quality products that reflect a simpler time. The term “sugar bush” is because they're an operating sugar bush. This means they tap trees and boil sap during late winter. I have a couple big maple trees that we tap as well, and I can say this - fresh syrup beats the store stuff.

etsy.com/shop/MoeggenborgSugarBush

There are a variety of different soaps - some that are easy on the skin, and others that are more exfoliating. Goat's milk is wonderful for soap and you'll find it's a common base ingredient. It's soothing to the skin and adds to a good lather. Lots of scents and choices!

Pictured above is the lavender soap, a tranquil combination of fresh herbs and cool camphor with top notes of Italian bergamot, eucalyptus leaves, citrus zest, and French lavender. Cool, huh? Almost looks like slices of purple cake! Don't eat it though. It smells great and my wife likes to use the bar at the sink before going to bed with the calming senses.

This particular soap is made with real goat milk and lavender, as well as the following:
  • distilled water
  • sodium hydroxide
  • coconut
  • palm
  • soybean
  • avocado
  • olive
  • sweet almond castor
  • cocoa butter
  • fragrance oil

I also have the natural oatmeal soap, shown below, which is formulated especially for folks with sensitive skin like myself. It's an unscented, all-natural soap. No colorants or fragrance oil, so it's pretty safe.

etsy.com/shop/MoeggenborgSugarBush

You can get the most out of your handmade soap by treating it with care. Don't leave it sitting in water, and instead place it in a dish or on a ledge. Even just sitting on the sink works. Keeping it fresh and allowing it to let water roll away will help the lifespan.

So who wants some soap?! Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is graciously offering two (2) bars of goat milk soap - one lavender and one natural oatmeal - to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Pretty & Practical Soaps and Gifts [giveaway]

A year or two ago my wife got a couple bars of homemade soap from a farmer's market and now we're jumping back on the natural soap train. Typically I use Dove, but it's good to try new stuff and mix things up.

Pretty & Practical is run by Mary-Ann, a full-time working mom and admitted tree hugger. I do a lot of tree hugging on the blog here, so her products fit right in. Mary-Ann comes from a small town in New England (like myself) and she's always had a love of art, nature, and creating.

Pretty & Practical started as a hobby, then a 'keep in the habit' sale, and then it took off. Mary-Ann started stepping up production and planning for fairs, and now she's on Etsy offering her creations to you!

etsy.com/shop/PrettyPracticalSoaps

All soaps are made in small batches, which make some of them limited time offers due to the artistic difference of each batch. 

And since everyone's skin is different obviously, there are a variety of different soaps from gentle to exfoliating. There's something for everyone. Lots of scents and choices!

Pictured above is the honey oatmeal soap, formulated to be a gentler cleanser and scented with a wonderful blend of oatmeal honey and milk fragrance. Cool, huh? Looks so good you could eat it! Don't eat it though. It smells great, has a nice creamy lather, and my wife likes to use the bar at the sink. Plus it's better than the boring hand soap pump things.

If you're curious about the ingredients like I was, this particular soap is made with real honey and oatmeal, as well as the following:
  • olive oil
  • palm oil
  • coconut oil
  • grape seed oil
  • cocoa butter
  • castor oil
  • fragrance

Pretty & Practical's handmade soaps are special, so to get the most out of 'em they should be treated with care. Don't leave them sitting in water, and instead place them in a dish or on a ledge. Keeping it fresh and allowing it to let water roll away will help the lifespan.
