New Purex Crystals Scentsplash--Review and Giveaway

 Purex has done it again!  This time it's Purex Crystals Scentsplash.
Due to be released in stores in April, so be on the lookout.

It's the Crystals that we all love, but in a liquid form.  It will also do 35% more loads than the solid crystals as well.

Scentsplash comes in these scents for irresistible fragrance that lasts:
Fresh Spring Waters
Fresh Lavender Blossom
Fresh Mountain Breeze

I would love to try all 3 scents, but I am happy that they chose to send me the Fresh Lavender Blossom as it has been my favorite in the past.
Those of you who read my blog often know that I mostly hang my clothes out on the line to dry.
I love how the Scentsplash scent just radiates from them!
I find myself just sniffing my laundry--weird, I know, but I can't help it!

The cap has 2 measures.  You can use as little or as much as you like.  I tend to go right in between the lines for a regular sized load.  It goes directly into the washer just as the solid crystals do.
Three lucky Marsha's Spot readers will each with a free coupon for Purex Crystals Scentsplash.  Enter using the rafflecopter below and good luck!

Traffic Exchanges Report

License: CC0 Public Domain / FAQ Free for commercial use / No attribution required

If you recall, last week I posted about Gladiator Hits.

I talked about how it as well as the other exchange, Traffic Dynamite, that I had been doing both offered downline builders and a surf center.  I had the thought of trying out their exchange surfing schedule.
I set out to join the sites in the surf center.
I stopped at joining 4 of them.  Two of them I am really enjoying, the other 2 didn't have the things that I look for---chat feature, jackpot, cash prizes while surfing along with the credit prizes.

I surfed Gladiator Hits and Traffic Dynamite every day of the week, logging in each day as well as tweeting my referral link each day.
I also did the same for the 2 exchanges that I joined.  I'm enjoying all 4 exchanges.
The banners for the other 2 will be at the bottom of this post if you are interested in checking them out.
I will always offer to transfer credits to anyone who signs up under me to help get your sites and such seen faster and more.

Here are my earnings for each exchange for the week:

Traffic Dynamite-- $1.61
Gladiator Hits-- .82
BharatSurf -- $2.27
ProtrafficShop $1.02
for a total of $5.72

No, I'm not getting rich, but I am getting my blog as well as several of my other paid to clicks and my crafts seen along the way.
I'm surfing every day this week and I will give another report next week as well. - Bringing You World Wide Traffic From the Heart of India!
Please note that $1.85 of my $2.27 from BharatSurf came from a $1.85 sign up bonus.  This bonus is available using the code promo185 until 2600 members.  As of this writing there are 2,572 members so still time to get the bonus!  If you join, click in to the Traffic Exchange area then into the Promo Codes area.  Nice bonus for signing up!

Ribbon by Scribbleprints on Zazzle--Giveaway Included

Scribbleprints on Zazzle    
is owned by Gale and she really has a lot to offer with her designs.

A little about Gale and Scribbleprints:

She's been doing art since she was a little girl.  She even considered becoming an art teacher at one point, but took another path.  Her scribble designs, or "Scribbleprints" started as doodles during boring classes in high school and college.  She would scribble in the margins of her notes and then fill the scribbles in with descending lines.  She even had a few classmates ask her to draw one for them, but she didn't really do much more with them until years after college, when she started making shapes and patterns with them.

The scribble designs at Scribbleprints start as pen and ink drawings, which are scanned, cleaned up, and colored online

The rest of her art is just for fun.  Ideas for her humorous designs just pop into her head.  Most of those are inspired by her three children.   She also dabbles in a little water color, such as the design on the water color flowers. 

Gale was kind enough to send me some of her Red Satin Ribbon.
We plan to use some of it to make a ribbon hair barrette.

She also sent me some of the Water Color Flowers satin ribbon.

As you can see, it worked perfectly for the handles on the bag that I sewed for my daughter. She loves the ribbon, and her bag too.

The ribbon is of a very high quality. It's available in 1.5 and 3 inch widths and 3 lengths.
She offers several other ribbons in her shop as well. In fact, Scribbleprints offers loads of choices in both products and designs.

Gale has been gracious to offer some of the Red and the Water Color Flower ribbon to one luck Marsha's Spot reader. Simply enter using the rafflecopter form below.

Disclaimer: I received both ribbons from Scribbleprints to try. I wasn't compensated in any other way, but all opinions are my own. Scribbleprints is supplying the giveaway prize.

Frugal Friday With Marsha 3/27/15

What does being frugal mean to you?

For me it's making due with what you have....finding ways to re-use.......recycling.....planting a garden to provide some of your foods......saving money wherever you can.

This past week I've thought a lot about my couponing.  It never fails that when I post about good deals I have gotten, that at least one person comments such as  'you aren't saving if you are buying things you don't need'  or  'you aren't really saving unless you putting the money that you saved with the coupons into a savings account' or even things like 'I would never buy that brand of toilet paper unless it was free' or 'we don't buy boxed and processed foods'.    You get the picture.

Yes, I buy a lot of things that we don't really need.  Yes, I buy things that I wouldn't buy if it weren't for the fact that they are so cheap with coupons. Christmas and birthday gift stash is growing immensely.  I soon will have a shelf in my bedroom where my children can come in and get the things they need.   I have given lots to charities.
Mostly, if I am going to have a hobby, or something that I enjoy this much, then couponing is a great hobby to have.  I have FUN.

This past week I only got a few things at Walgreens.  I paid less than the sales tax, paying just 55 cents.  And, I came home with $4.50 in their register rewards coupons to spend on whatever I like next time I shop.   How can that be wrong?

The Glade plug ins made sense.  I love to have a scented home and I have so many of the plug in units that I bought as fillers on KMart's double coupon days.  We all use toothpaste....and hopefully hand soap.  The headband is now in my gift stash.

Well, that's it for me this week.  I have a huge list of things to look for at Target while I am out today.  I'm pretty anxious to get to shopping, in hopes that our Target does sell at least most of them.

I look forward to your share this week of your frugal posts.

Let Rowenta Help You With Those "Pressing" Matters This National Craft Month

For me, every month is Craft Month.  It is nice to know that there is a month each year that is dedicated to us crafters.  A month dedicated to completing an unfinished project, starting a new one, or even learning a whole new craft.

My main craft is quilting.  If you know about quilting then you know that it involves a LOT of pressing and ironing.
It's also really nice to have a superior quality iron for this purpose.  Take that extra pride in your work.

Rowenta has something to take care of all of those pressing needs.

Take their First Class Travel Iron for example.

  As a quilter it's so much easier using the travel iron for the smaller things such as pressing the seams on quilt blocks.  I love the precision tip on this travel iron.  I makes opening the seams a breeze.  
The handle folds down and it fits neatly in the carrying bag that comes with it.

•    Highly polished microsteam stainless steel soleplate provides a smooth surface with superior glide.
•    High precision tip delivers steam and pressing into hard-to-reach areas.
•    Vertical steam removes wrinkles from drapes and hanging garments.
•    Folding handle folds flat for storage.

Here is another of Rowenta's Irons that you will want to check out:
Rowenta Pro Master Iron
•    1700-watts: A long lasting burst of steam allows for efficient and easy steaming
•    Microsteam stainless soleplate with a precision tip for advanced steam distribution
•    Soft touch handle provides comfort and a non-slip grip
•    Soft touch buttons offer superior control
•    Vertical steam allows iron to be used in the upright position for drapes and hanging garments
•    Variable steam settings offer flexibility when ironing a variety of fabrics and thick layers at seams and waist bands
•    Anti-slip frame provides extra stability when iron is on its heel
•    Anti-drip system prevents spitting and leaking when the thermostat is on a low temperature setting
•    3-way auto shut-off feature turns the iron off in 8 minutes if vertical, 30 seconds if horizontal or tipped over
•    Iron self cleans, removing loose mineral deposits and impurities to be flushed out

They also offer floor care, comfort and hair care products as well.  You will want to be sure to check out their website HERE

Here's to National Craft Month!

Writer's Unite 3/26/15


Catching up is what I feel like I am doing this week!  I am behind on writing reviews and doing giveaways.  I just rec'd a product yesterday to write about this being National Crafting Month.  Now they sent it to me a bit late since this month is about over, but I will work to get their post up today.
I also have another review and giveaway that will go up today.....the same company sent me another product yesterday already.
I love getting all of the free stuff, but am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now.  I have NO idea how the bloggers that put up 2 or 3 posts a day with reviews and giveaways do it....other than they are probably not like me, also doing 12 or more other websites in a day besides blogging.

I am still writing at bubblews.  Only 2 or 3 posts a day.  I had a dream last night that I woke up this morning to an announcement that they are just not going to pay anymore period.  I like the socializing aspect with those who have continued to write there like myself, but do wish I could earn more than 25 cents or more a day.
Recently I've started working some traffic exchanges that offer a chat feature while you surf, so I'm doing a little socializing there, plus there is tsu as well.  However, my daily earnings on tsu are also about half of what they were for awhile.    Sure seems hard to earn anymore.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing what you link up today.  I'm going to go ahead and link up 2 of my bubblews posts.
