Okay, this one I'm excited about.

At this point I've got a half dozen products laying around waiting to be written about. My Tropical Traditions coconut chips came yesterday, a huge, just gigantic 2.5 gallon bucket of coarsely shredded coconut. I can't WAIT to get moving on that one, of course, because anything that involves me developing recipes I find thrilling.

That's not what I'm so excited about today, though...I'm reviewing a hard-cover Mixbook through Tomoson. This one is gonna be big. I've been playing with the website for over an hour arranging my custom ordered scrapbook.

Holy-hannah heaven, is it EASY to work with. Oh. My. Heavens, I'm in Heaven. I know, that's a lot of Heaven, but we are talking about a girl who managed to superglue her own fingers together in art class.

I can't even manage to make a box. You know, with four even sides. If I measure. It's really bad. I've got zero craft talent. All my talent lends itself to food and having babies. And that's why Mixbook is perfect for me.

It really appears to be Heather proof. I've spent time making collages online for gifts before, only to have the final product arrive all blah. Fuzzy pictures that looked just fine to my untrained eye, look TERRIBLE on the finished product. Mixbook flags those with a big, yellow exclamation point. I can't wait to see this book when it's done, and to let you know how it turned out!

Please, give them a look up for your Father's day ideas...I think it may be a little close to Mother's day, because I've done about three pages and it's taken me an hour playing with the various features, stickers, shapes and photo effects. I'm really just thrilled with the website so far and can't wait to finish my official review.
