Check this out!!

Every so often I get asked to write a review of a product.  I like doing this, it's fun and you get to check out all kinds of different things.  A rep at BuildASign contacted me several weeks ago to take a look at their products and I am sure glad I did.  What a great site, you can make all kinds of different banners, bumper stickers, signs, posters, flags, you name it!  Of course I had to see the product before I would write about it, that's just the way we are here in Maine, ayah, and I was not disappointed!  Take a looksy at this bumper sticker that I designed very easily for my favorite event in the whole wide world:

Isn't that the cutest?  It's almost like he was posing for the picture!  These bumper stickers are great quality and not only are they good for putting on your vehicle, we at the Humane Society are putting them on our notebooks, doors to the offices, anywhere where they can be seen and draw attention to our biggest fundraiser of the year! You can pick your font, colors, pictures, graphics, move things around all with a click of your mouse.  If I can do it anyone can do it!

Of course I didn't leave it at that, I had to make some of the 2'X4' posters to put up at Miss T's and Mr. D's birthdays that are coming up.  I just ordered those so they haven't come yet but if you go to Mommy's Memorandum you can see the fun she had making these with her kiddo's.  What a great memento to hang on the wall after the birthday! You can bet your boots (as in snow boots) that I will be doing this every year!

Disclosure: I did not get paid for this review, all the opinions are my own, and you know me I DO have my opinions!  Build A Sign graciously donated 50 bumper stickers to Bangor Humane Society.  Check them out, you will be glad you did!  :o)

We don't just claim our products are better, we back it up. If your custom signs aren't absolutely perfect, call us and we'll make it right. Our team of experts is standing by to make sure your experience is 100% hassle-free. That's something you won't find at a traditional sign franchise. goes beyond the custom banner and offers magnetics for bumpers, signs, flags and more! You can truly personalize your event or business with any of their products and leave a lasting impression.

The banner adds a touch to any occasion that makes it a keepsake. A personalized banner would be the perfect touch to a graduation, Welcome Home, Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday, new arrival, Shower or even Valentine's Day! Because it's personalized, the possibilities are endless!

We are getting more snow here today in Tundra Country.  It's the real pretty fluffy stuff that is just nice to look at but doesn't have enough moisture in it for making snowmen or having a good ole' snowball fight.  The deer and turkeys have been hanging out regularly filling up on wildlife feed.  I had a nice surprise yesterday when I looked out and the white deer was out there with the rest of the group.  His face is brown so he is called a piebald like a horse but his body is all white.  What a treat to see him up close and personal out the window. Hopefully I will get a picture of him one of these days!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!  Keep your fingers crossed for us that we can get out of Snow Country on Thursday to head to our conference in Sun Country. They are predicting a storm so let's hope it goes out to sea!  :o)

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I was contacted by these people as well. I guess I really should check them out. At the time my imagination was in hibernation. LOL

Thanks for the reminder.

uugghhh. I just heard more snow mid week. Oh my, do I even dare say that I am ready for black flies and mud...... guess we'll know when that happens :)

It does look like they do a great job. I was interested to see that they also do magnetic posters. Those would be great for the guy's vehicles when they do catering.

All I can say is that you had better get out of there on Thursday. Maybe you should leave Wednesday to make sure. I don't want any less visiting time than we already have!!!!!! See you really soon, my friend. xoxox

I loved making banners when the kids were little. Haven't made one in a long time, but I'll have to check out the site.

Today it was in the high 60's here, but rain is coming! Hope it's sunny for your trip and that you get to fly with no storms!

I was also contacted by build a sign. Haven't had time to play with it yet :(

I am going to put my BHS bumper sticker on my car once I get the mud, snow, ice and salt off my car, say in June!

Okay, so how did I get so behind again?? The site looks interesting - glad you got those free bumper stickers!

I sure hope you get a picture of that white deer one of these days - wish we could have seen it when we were there!

Here's hoping your flights go as well as ours did!
