Money is tight for me... as usual...lol
But I found a great way to give gifts this year without paying a fortune.
I am making my own "Pringles Can" personalized for those I love!
What is so exciting about making a Pringles Can..? lol
Well for starters.... IT IS FREE!
....You can upload your own images and customize it to fit the personality of the recipient!
....You can print your can label and tape it to a can of "Pringles"! Cost is Under $2.00 for the can of chips. lol
....Best of all, nothing says The Holidays like a Home Made gift! Made with love!
So, here is the first can I made for Jesse Sinatra! You can vote for it if you like it, and start making your own too.
If you do create your own design, Pringles will Donate $1.00 to The Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization that raises funds for children's hospitals across North America!

If you’re new to how “the law of attraction” works, this post might help you understand.
Here is a very simple tool to help you manifest what you want in your life.
1. Be specific in what you want or need and why.
2. Visualize how you feel having received it.
3. Be thankful for receiving it.
4. Ask for it, post anywhere asking for it, and always “thank you” in advance!
Here is one example of what I have manifested using this technique…
1. Up late one night I got hypnotized by an infomercial- The Jack La Lane Power Juicer!
I decided I wanted a Juicer so I could start living more healthy, and as a support tool for my weight loss goal.
How I asked for it:
I posted in Craigslist asking, if anyone had an inexpensive Juicer they no longer needed to please let me know.
I searched for one on EBAY… visualizing how happy I would be using it. The prices were way out of my price range, but I did not focus on that.
I thought about all the recipes I would use and visualized myself putting the fresh fruits and veggies through it.
I checked my email a few times, had received some replies, but they wanted too much money.
A few weeks passed-
I checked my email and to my surprise someone had offered me a Juicer for “FREE.” She said it was her in-laws and they used it one time. She left it on her porch for me to pick up.
When I got it, I could not believe my eyes. It was the top of the line Jack Lalane Deluxe Juicer! Brand new, in the box with the recipe books and support tools to go with!
I thanked the Universe over and over as I drove my new juicer home, as soon as I got home I emailed the lady who gave it to me, expressing my deepest appreciation!

This Halloween I had the distinct pleasure to take my 2 ½ year old daughter Trick or Treating! She was a hot pink and black spotted cat and I was a hot granny! My 20 year old son, mom and great friend Jesse Sinatra accompanied her on this 1st Halloween outing.
What made this event so special to me was being there “In the present” for the entire evening! Unlike last year, in which I hid us from the spirit of Halloween. Thanksgiving and Christmas as well, were held hostage by my broken heart. I had focused my attention on what we "didn’t have" that would make the holidays wonderful.
This Halloween I had no thoughts of “mommy and daddy" should be here together.
I was living in the moment with my daughter and my family. The delight in her eyes receiving candy from happy neighbors, her genuine gratitude for those tasty treats was powerful enough to keep me grateful for what I have in my life.
This Halloween I learned that I CAN be a single mom again, and be at peace with it!
Ever since I had my son at the age of 17, my life’s dream was to find us a home with a “daddy.” I missed so much of his beautiful moments growing up because I was preoccupied with what we did not have in our life!
Jump forward 18 years later, I’m married and have a brand new baby girl- I’m 35 years old, and telling everyone how this time I’m doing it the “right way.” Well, guess what I learned this past year?
The only right way is right NOW, the present moment. Husbands, friends, neighbors, etc will most likely come and go in your life- cherish the moments you have with them, but don’t dwell on the fact you don’t have them in your life today.
Dwelling in what you don’t have is your ENEMY- it will invade your personal space and block the beauty of the present moment from you.
What I fortunately learned this past year was that even through great heartache, betrayal, deceit, rejection and loss, I can STILL be happy right now, this moment.
I no longer allow my mind to wander with endless hopes of being in love to the man I married, raising a beautiful family, and growing old together. So long you “Leave It to Beaver” happiness thieves!
I’m content and at peace TODAY. I’m a single mom, again 20 years later, and I LOVE it. I’m back where I started- at home with my mom, this time I love being here.
I’m living month to month and I don’t have an ounce of worry. I’m grateful for a second chance at learning what is most important in life.
A veil of expectations to arrive in my life in order to make me happy have been lifted. Happiness does not revolve around what I don’t have, it IS right now- living in my present moment, fully and appreciative of what is my life right now.

I tried everything to get my ex back!!!
... i cried for a year almost every day, or I drank myself to sleep or ate comfort food to escape. The pain of not letting go was sooo much stronger and devastating than accepting the separation and moving on. I was afraid, plain and simple. Scared to start my life over, "alone" uncertain about my future, and feeling rejected and unloved by the man I gave my heart to.
It's funny to me, because I started practicing the LoA a year prior to our breakup-
I also knew deep inside that it was a mistake to marry him in the first place, I knew the day before we wed. But I tricked myself into believing it would be wonderful, and focused my attention outward- I was more concerned with how others would see me, being married to a "wonderful" man. How happy they would be for me. lol
Needless to say, I kept on practicing the LOA- focus boards-etc before and during our marriage. Here is the "funny" part, our life together just got worse and worse- until finally, I ended up in a domestic violence shelter with our baby and a coffee can filled with change.
I kept my focus board with me during that time in my car- as I spent most of my free time in it while being homeless for 3 months in search of a new life. But I still grieved for our marriage and desperately wanted him back. Even though I knew in my heart I would never be happy under his conditions, I could never be a step-ford wife.
I spent an entire year focusing on HIM instead of myself. I even had a sta-sta-stutter for about 6 months. It was terribly embarrassing and I tried not to speak up, and limited my verbal reactions as much as possible! Through ALL of this, I still wanted him back!
The "funny" thing is that- I never gave up on the LOA even through all of this!
I started to understand something about myself through this- that I had dreams, interest's and passions that were about ME- independent of him or anyone else. I had something that was ALL mine! Interest's that gave me pleasure to explore, hobbies that turned into a healing regimen, and an undeniable devotion to living in the PRESENT- where I was most comfortable & relaxed... even though at times hard to accomplish- it was and IS satisfying to know if in deed I'm in the PRESENT or not!
I guess my point is that for me I learned the LOA.... has it's own unique map to manifestation, and even during the lowest points of my life, they are set up that way through the universe to get me ultimately to a place I long for. The pain, unhappiness, and hard lessons are not the universe being against me, but rather the Universe taking me on- to help manifest my desires. Sometimes that means I will experience terribly ugly situations, but I believe those situations are needed in order to get me to understand myself better. To understand how my reaction to events and situations determine if I am "present" or not.
I have gotten to a point now where my attention is focused on me and my inner happiness- instead of what I don't have in my present life. I am now free and independent- and with that comes clarity! This is something I would never have had in my life if the tragic end of our marriage never happened.
My new perspective is that I feel sorry for him- and hope one day before it's too late he might be happy living in the present himself. For me, the present moment is an ongoing love affair with myself- a place I can count on and learn from, and every now and then experiences of magic and dreams come true.
I hope this helps a little-

This business of referrals and the GPT industry is soo not for everyone! I know for a fact you CAN make decent money online, but this industry is NOT for those who want to get rich quick or want to do minimal work for maximum cash payouts!
So if you don't want to spend the time doing research, like reading my blog for example- I recommend you find other ways, and if you do find a quick get rich program that cost's NO money to sign up then please, please email me cuz I want IN.
Now, if your the kind of person who is genuinely interested in growing your referral down-line and you don't mind spending 20 seconds doing a free offer/survey for around 50 cents profit 5-10 times a day, I highly recommend you read on...
What a great concept: Read and click their ads and make money doing it!
With the help of "RoboForm" a free down-loadable program, you can easily move through the surveys and offers at rapid speed!
Of Course there's the "pay for referrals" path, but why spend money when you don't have to?
Here is my advice:
1. Be excited about learning something new every day!
2. Nurture your referrals and your blogs...keep in contact with your referrals, let them know what is working and crediting for you. Ask them how they are doing, and if they have any questions.
3. Keep your blog active- make sure you include it in your email signature and routinely update the signature to let members know what is NEW over at your blog.
4. For Sure join the GPT Boycot forum.... and post away there! People are always wanting to know which sites to sign up at.
5. I can't express enough to have other content on your blog in addition to "making money online." I include articles (for example) like, "How to Get Free Stuff Online" including links. Then I post a link to that article on various classified sites like craigslist. Title: "Free 3lb bag of Cat Food."
And, woola... people click to get the bag of cat food, they check out my blog, and are signing up at the sites I'm affiliated with. The next thing I see is that my referral base is UP!!!
So, like I said it takes time... and most importantly you should be having fun at it!
If it's not fun for ya.... you won't be doing it for very long. So find ways to make it fun.... and set realistic goals.
I will write more about this in upcoming post's, so make sure you subscribe to my blog- and email me if you have any comments, suggestions, and/or questions.
Coming soon- I will be posting about, "The Law of Attraction".. and the tools I use to attract what I want in my present life- and how it has worked for me so far!
I'm really excited about this- been focusing a lot of my "real time" energy on it, and WOW.... how exceptionally fast it has been working for me.
Follow your bliss,

This year I have been wrapping up my new life! I'm so excited to be able to also wrap presents this year for my baby girl! After working online for the past six months I have found that I really love a few sites- gptcashcow, freegasmoneyonline, cashcrate and fairytaletreasures, so I have devoted my time to only these.
All the sites I have listed here are great and legit, I recommend trying out some and find the sites that are the best fit for you then devote your time to only a handful. All the companies listed have a variety of contest's in addition to making money by doing offers and surveys. When you devote your time to only a handful you have lots of chances to win extra money and prizes. This is especially true if your new because you have many more offers available to you to complete.
This Christmas make a goal for yourself to make an extra $250.00 online. It is so easy to do this- especially if your stuck at home most of the time anyway!

It has been a month now- and I have cashed out making $100.00 my first month and lots of free stuff coming in the mail. It really was not hard to do at all.

Being a new stay at home mom- I struggled with an identity crises. For a long time I felt as if I had nothing to contribute to our family because I was not bringing home a check. My husband- sadly did not give me an allowance and pretty much said I was not an equal, because I was not working. He did not see me being a full time mom, house cleaner and wife as important as his job- being a pilot. Even though we both agreed I would be a stay at home mom.
Needless to say- my self esteem plummeted. I felt so alone and I lost confidence in myself. My husband did not offer me much emotional support, always bringing up how I should clean better and such.
Sadly, our marriage failed- he filed for divorce instead of accepting his role in our problems- (I always said it takes two)
He wanted a step-ford wife- and I wanted an identity and emotional support from him.
It will be a year in August that we have been separated, the divorce is final at the end of July- although I am still grieving our broken marriage, I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!
I have been practicing the law of attraction for over a year now- and spending a lot of time working on myself.
I can't express enough how much working online has helped me personally! It may not seem important, but I have met some great women who can relate to me- and I have been making extra money too.
I consider doing these surveys and paid to click programs ALL mine. I finally have something I can do from home, and I am getting paid! I am proud of myself for not giving up on my dreams- I did for a while. Even though doing these surveys and working on referrals might seem there is little to be gained from it. I know I have gained a lot: Money.... Friendship..... a place just for me.... and an identity. Most importantly I have regained my self esteem while earning a living.
What's more than that.... I have extremely good news I will post soon. How working on my focus board and using the law of attraction is changing my life!
I'm so excited, motivated, and happy!
All thanks to not giving up and trying new things like this blog!
Follow your bliss.

Here is the run down so far on my fave online companies.
By far, one of the most important things you can do is
download CCleaner at www.ccleaner.com It is a free
program and will get rid of the cookies that will prevent
your offers from crediting. Cookies are small bits of
information that are sent to your computer to track your
identity. It is important to clear cookies after each and every
offer that you do or you will not have a good approval
rate on offers.
Also: About Cookies
Check your Internet options in the toolbar check cookies and make sure they are enabled, and leave the final window and pop-ups open for a few minutes in order for the advertisers to have time to credit you.
But please, please, clear cookies before going on to more offers!
I love this program. It's a great tool when filling out surveys. I
strongly suggest downloading roboform at
It takes all the tedious time out of filling out surveys. With one click it will do everything for you. Also- a great added benefit: when you get to the pages where you have to mark yes or no, if you hold down the Alt and = keys at the same time it will automatically fill in all the no circles for you! With roboform you can enter your name, address etc. automatically. This is much easier and you can complete
offers much more quickly.
- COMPLETING OFFERS
When doing email/zip submits all you need to do is either
enter your zip code or email (remember a new one
each time). After you get to the next page you are finished.
There is nothing more you need to do with that offer. In
regards to surveys, when you reach a thank you page or
something similar you have reached the end of the survey
and it is completed. Please remember to always use valid information when filling out offers.
One more thing:
Use a valid phone or voicemail, and make sure your name is
in the greeting. If a company calls and its not a real
phone number or your name is not in the greeting the
offer will not be credited and could be determined as fraud.

I'm a single mom, going through a nasty divorce-
I love youtube and love making videos.
My dream is to be able to continue working from home so I can raise my baby.
I also will never put my life in anyone's hands...ie: "men". Don't think I will ever be able to trust again, or at least not for a very long time.
Here are some links to my youtube channels:
(Side Note: Jan 21, 2012) It's been 5 years now since I was LonelyHouseWife35, and I totally lost her password/email login to this youtube account.)
(Side Note: Jan 21, 2012) The Chick Channel is still ACTIVE, she is 6 years old and growing strong!
OK.... I am really having fun now with cashcrate! I have discovered that doing surveys really does pay you, but read the forums over at cashcrate for hints and suggestions on filling them out. A little research will pay off at the end!
Here is what I have learned so far:
- Be accurate, don't lie on the surveys or you will be removed from cashcrate.
- For most surveys you have to confirm your email
- Refer, refer, refer.... you make the most money by getting others to sign up under you!
- Google free ads to place your cashcrate link and info
- Blog about it
- Make friends and network with other cashcrate members
(Side Note: Jan 21, 2012)
I've grown out of doing online surveys and gpt sites. But hey, they sure helped me when I needed it.
