GO give a way countdown/Helpful hints

One week to GO now, and I will be announcing the winner of the GO Baby and 3 dies of their choice. Don't delay, sign up today (on the Better Get GOing post) and don't forget to put in all the information you need to be eligible to win. 


I have had quite a few "No-Reply" bloggers. Please check your settings and make sure you are not one of them. If I can't get a hold of you, you won't be a winner. For those who added their email in their comment, thanks that works great.  I for one, had no idea just how to see or change my setting until recently. Unfortunately, I don't remember which blogger it was, that posted an easy way to fix it, but I do know that Madame Samm over at Stash Manicure, has a great post for us, on the subject. With her permission, I have added it here, for you.

AND
Have you all seen the other great thing over at Stash Manicure?  Yeah, I know, what great thing am I talking about. There are so many...        :-)  :-)  :-)

Madame Samm seems to keep finding all these fantastic "toys" for us, and she "is" the queen, of great graphics. 

Now really, a place to turn anything into a PDF file and for free???  Hallelujah!!!  I hear the angels singing.  Besides the fact that I tend to have very long tutorials, you all remember that Hidden Wells one, yeah the 26 pages long one. :-)  Well, here you go, you can PDF if yourselves.  I have tons of things put on my favorites,  when I go back thru them half are usually no longer good web sites. This, is going to change things that once and for all. I can now make a PDF file of anything I see that interests me and save it. No more searching thru old links to try to find things.

Go check out Print Friendly for yourselves by clicking HERE. They have a great video on just how it all works.
Pin Interest if you have ever heard of them, is also another great place to save your favorite articles from "Blogland" and web sites, for free. It saves photos with the article so you visually have a place to find things you love. You can check them out HERE if you are interested. Just request an invite, and they will get back to you! 
But there is still that issue, if the web page is taken down the information is lost. So for myself, I plan on using them, along with the PDF maker from Print Friendly, that way I never loose the information I want.  :-) :-)

Now there you have it, check  out your setting on your Google accounts, and start saving all those great tutorials and blogs you love. I am off to start cleaning out my favorites file once and for all!
Happy Dance Happy Dance!!!     Print Friendly here I come!
