Busy being a designer

Wow, I already feel like I have been neglecting this blog.... Besides blogging, I work as a freelance graphic designer, so I've been working like a crazy woman. Have been drinking too much coffee and going through sleep deprivation. However, this is the only way that I can keep up with my kids & work at the same time. Especially yesterday, I got up 6:30a.m., got my oldest ready for school, grocery shopping, spending time with my toddler, design work, took my oldest to her piano lesson in the evening, cooked dinner, cleaned and so on. By 9:00p.m., I was so exhausted, but of course due to too much caffeine, I could not sleep until midnight. Anyways, I'm sorry for ranting..... I am currently preparing to offer giveaways on this blog for next month, so please stay tuned.

Bye bye pee.....

I have been potty training my little one this past week and she has had some success.  As I mentioned on my previous post on potty training, she usually says "Potty Power!" when she successfully goes on the potty.  In addition to saying "potty power",  she now says "Bye bye pee pee, bye bye poo poo,  I love you!" then she waves & flashes the toilet. My husband, my oldest and I have been laughing so hard....  It is very funny to watch her, but at the same time, she is so innocent and cute.  I wish she stays like this forever......

My lucky day!

I am feeling very lucky today!  As I mentioned on my previous post, I purchased a $25 Boston Market gift card for $15. What a great savings! Then, I got my FREE collage photo from Walgreens.  When I came home from Walgreens, a package from Maybeline New York was waiting for me!!!!!  I was one of the winners of Allure Magazine giveaway stuff! Look at my photo below! What a surprise.  I never really won anything in my life, so I am feeling very lucky:-)

Free 8X10 Collage Print!

Walgreens is offering a FREE 8x10 collage print deal. As always, I love Walgreens' free print deal. Every time Walgreens' free offer comes out, I use it. This is a same day pick up offer that you can pick up at the store. Just order your print online, Enter CLG8X10 at the checkout and pick a nearest Walgreens by you. Remember, one print per customer.  Pick up at the store is free, but if you want it to your order delivered at you home, shipping may be charged. I ordered my free collage this morning and going to pick it up at the store this afternoon:-)  This offer is only good thru Saturday, October 22. Enjoy!

Potty Power!

I have been trying to potty train my 2 year old for the past few days.  My daughter has been saying "Potty Power!" every time she goes to the potty.  My daughter has been watching a DVD called Potty Power - For Boys & Girls and learning to say "Potty Power" from it.  If you are potty training your child, I highly recommend this DVD. I have used this DVD to potty train my oldest daughter 5 years ago as well.  I successfully potty trained my oldest daughter back then with this DVD.  It was an awesome DVD to have.     I also have another potty training DVD featuring Elmo, but in my opinion, Potty Power is the best one.  It's sold at Amazon and if you are an Amazon Prime member, I believe that you get a free 2 day shipping. Good luck to all the parents out there who are trying to potty train their little ones.

A fresh start

I've recently moved from Illinois to Indiana. While I was living in Illinois, I created a blog called Hip mommy's place. It was successful. However, after seeing a similar names on the web,  I've decided to rename my blog to Poppin' Cents. A new house, a new blog, I'm starting a fresh start.

I would like to share my ideas, thoughts and tips about earning extra income online, saving money online, parenting and many other things that may interest my readers. I hope to gain some good friendships via blogging as well.
