10 Linea App and photo book giveaway

The other morning two of my neighbor friends were over and we got to talking about how wonderful digital pictures are, but how we don’t print the pictures anymore. I was the Queen of Scrapbooking and have dozens of scrapbooks from my childhood, college and first 4 years of marriage. Scrapbooking was a creative outlet, but also part of our family history.

Brittany mentioned that she makes a photo book at the end of each year with all her favorite pictures. I’ve been meaning to do this, but haven’t found a program that I loved. The big hang up for me is that I don’t want to have to go to another website and upload pictures.

Linea Photo Line is a great a sollution. It’s a an app that you download and can print photo books right from your ipad, amazing, huh?
Danish Mama is hosting a giveaway for 20 readers! We get to test out the product for them and get a LEGEACYBox and instructions how to make your own MosaicBook! These books are fully customizable from cover to cover and their photo boxes are made of the very best archival material – a great way to save even the oldest of photos.
I agreed to participate in this campaign because I thought it would be a fun project for us to do together! All you have to do is download the app and upload your photos to create your MosaicBook. It’s easy to make and botht he book and the box will be delivered straight to your door.

More about LINEA: 
While digital cameras have made capturing moments easier, it’s also allowed our photo collections to get a little out of hand. With Linea, a new photo app available on the iPhone and iPad, you can instantly and effortlessly organize and share all of your images. Simply upload your photos and Linea automatically curates them into professionally arranged Photo Lines, where each new Line turns your photos into a dynamic visual story. Sleek, easy and secure, Linea takes care of your memories so that you can go on making more.

Linea is the first iPad app to offer printing services. With the tap of your finger, you can turn your Photo Lines into professional-grade photo books that are mailed straight to your door.
Setting up your account is a snap! 
Go to the Linea.com page and click the top right hand corner to create an account.

 Fill out your information and you can start using right away!
Another thing I really like about Linea is that you can invite other members to create the photo book. For example, when my father turned 60 we were trying to gather photos from all our family and it got messy with dropbox and different accounts. Linea can stream line the process in one place. 

Good luck and I’d love to see what you create with your new Linea photobook!

To celebrate the release of a new novel to the Seven Halos series, author Monica Leonelle is doing a Kindle Fire giveaway for Silver Smoke, the first novel in the series! Silver Smoke is the highly-rated (4.8 stars on Amazon) debut novel about the Hallows and the Nephilim, the descendants of archangels and humans. Here’s a description of the book:

Brie van Rossum has fame, fortune, and beauty, but there’s one thing she doesn’t have–the name of her mother’s supernatural killer.
The Hallows, descendants of the archangels, don’t think Milena was murdered.. but can Brie trust them when their government, the New Order, wants her dead?

She’d better figure it all out soon…

… because when Brie finds out who she really is, the hunt will begin.

And Milena might not be the only casualty.

Like mother, like daughter…

{Giveaway} Intermountain Mom

Me meeting my son for the first time in the NICU
Sponsored by:
Intermountain Moms (Intermountain Healthcare)
Intermountain Moms has a Facebook page/group for moms to connect and to ask medical and health related questions where they will be answered by a doctor or nurse. They also have a nurse responding people via video.  Their goal is to drive more users and engagement to that page: http://www.facebook.com/intermountainmoms
Intermountain Healthcare is a major part of the community. When my water broke at 34 weeks with my son, we were directed to LDS Hospital instead of our regularly scheduled hospital because LDS Hospital had a Special Care Nursery and our primary hospital did not. I am so glad we had our son there. It was a hard time for us, but we had amazing support from all of the staff. I still remember every single nurses name that cared for him during his three week stay. I still contribute to the yearly “Preemie Party” held at LDS Hospital by making the invitations.
With our daughter our insurance had changed and I was excited to have Dr. Rebecca Ponder as my OBGYN at the new Intermountain Health Care Facility (IMC). Dr. Ponder came highly recommended by family and friends (the power of word of mom). They have a very nice Women’s center with lots of natural light. What I liked about going there is that I would see the doctor for my appointment and then I could go two doors down to the lab and next to that the  high risk/ultrasound. Which happend when I was 29 weeks along. I was put on bedrest for 2 months and received a lot of great support.
It was actually a year ago almost to the date that I went in for a routine check up and my cervical length had dramatically changed. So, instead of having to go to different location I walked down the hall. Labor and Delivery is located down stairs on the first floor. I liked having the doctors office and the hospital in the same place so that when I would bring my son for my visits he could see where the hospital was and get use to the idea of having me stay at the hospital.
One funny moment that I will never forget happened around 36 weeks. I couldn’t get a baby sitter for one reason or another so my son came with. We’d been prepping him for the baby and explained that soon the baby will come out. As we walked in the main doors I pointed out where the hospital was. We were at the doctors office waiting for the doctor and I was up on the examination table (modestly covered, of course) and he looked over at me and said, “Mom, just push!” I guess he thought we were going to have the baby right then and there!
During my 8 weeks of bed-rest, I was assigned to a very wonderful nurse that would routinely call and check on me. She was great. It was lonely being at home on bed-rest and I loved the phone calls from her. Her short 10 minute call quickly became an hour long as we would talk and laugh. It was touching to have someone really care like that for the well being of me and the baby. I knew that the hospital had “assigned” her to me but she took her responsibility much more serious and made the experience personal. Since then I have wished to call her and just “chat” or ask if what my baby was doing is “normal” and not have to wait to talk to the pediatrician (because when it comes to motherhood, we’re all freakers, aren’t we?).
I was happy to learn that all mothers can ask a real nurse (Nurse Dani) questions about their pregnancy or children. I reminds me of Ask A Nurse that Utah use to have some 10 years ago. It’s a great service where Nurse Dani can actually answer with video. The Intermountain Health Care facebook page has a lot of information and vidoes that act as a support for new mothers. Most of the videos are OBGYN’s and Pediatricians answering FAQ’s. It reminds me of the “Ask A Nurse” program they had a few years back.

The page has a community for mothers that can share their stories and experiences. The fans are very active, engaged and quick to help each other. I think this is nice because it really feels like a community and support group.
The Giveaway:
The prize: $300 GC to Babinski’s Baby http://www.babinskis.com/
Entry Method:
