Amazon Deals!!!

Check this out!!!

I have decided that I am going to utilize my time spent on Amazon looking for great deals and share them here in posts with you all! As you know I have reviewed products that I have purchased from Amazon in the past and will continue to do so. I do place links that take you back to the Amazon product on my reviews so that you can purchase the items as well if you would like. But since Covid-19 has brought everyone home and business is now slow, I am not getting nearly as many orders as projected this year, so now I manage to spend most of my day shopping Amazon for useful deals for my family that can be delivered right to my door.

 As I was shopping along today looking for adult coloring books I got thinking, "but wait, why not share this deal with my readers? It's 65% off!!!"

I know there are many people in the same situation that we are who shop thrifty and enjoy a great deal when they see one. So I figured I would help my followers and fans out and post some products on here that are great deals, no reviews attached to the deals unless of course I have used it myself, they will be more of a "Hey, check out what I just saw on Amazon!!" Yep, that's what I will be doing to help out my readers. You never know what kind of deals I will find that would interest you!!

With all of that said I want to make sure you all are aware... I know it's posted throughout the website but a reminder never hurts... I do participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, which is an affiliate advertising program that enables me to receive a small commission on qualifying products and purchases that are made through any of my links. This is at no extra cost to you! Also, please be aware that using rebate apps and websites; when shopping through my links that are on my website will VOID the small commission I would have earned for all the work I did to find these deals and share them with you.

For any codes that I share please be aware that you can only use one code per transaction. If you would like to purchase two items with the code they must be done in separate transactions.

Amazon has a few deal categories and I will try to share products when I can.

Frozen II Review

This post contains affiliate links. If you click through and make a purchase, I'll get a commission at no additional cost to you
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 has melted hearts around the world, becoming the No. 1 animated feature of all time.

Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven are back as they set out on yet another dangerous but remarkable journey. Will they discover why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom.  In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen 2, she must hope they are enough.

With bonus features including deleted scenes, deleted songs, Easter eggs, outtakes as well as a sing along version of the movies infectious songs. This movie is bound to be hours of Disney magic.

I have to start this by saying, my children loved the original Frozen movie so much that we were given no choice but to watch Frozen II as soon as it arrived it the mail.

Personally, I feel that it did not disappoint!

This has got to be the first cartoon that we've seen where my husband and I were both in agreement that the characters were US! Kristoff is definitely my husband and Anna is so much like me. It was so crazy to watch the movie unfold and see the two of them interacting with each other and others all the while thinking "that is totally daddy!" and of course "that is just like mommy!" Even the kids saw it.

The kids really enjoyed all of the new songs, and yes, they now know EVERY ONE OF THEM!
I enjoyed the story line of this movie, showing that not everything is how you believe it to be. Elsa and Anna both finally find their place in the world that they live in and in the end, what was best for all of the people is what happened.

Sometimes our journey leads us to unexpected places where we meet unexpected people and our lives change forever in one moment. Anna and Elsa embark on a brand new adventure as Elsa follows something that is calling to her. Why it only started to call now, I'm not sure. But it is calling and she has to listen to it. Unsure what this calling will reveal, unsure of the road to take, the journey ahead is, of course, dangerous. Anna and Elsa make a promise to do whatever it is together but Elsa surely knows that's not possible, and to keep her little sister safe she decides to continue the journey alone. Anna may not agree, may not understand and definitely does not like that she is left behind, Kristoff is feeling a lot of the same emotions, trying to figure out where he belongs in Anna's life, if he belongs. Each character has something to learn in Frozen II and by the end of the movie you realize that all their journeys are connected, each finding their own path that creates the big picture.

Personally, I really like this movie. We have watched it a few times and I feel Disney did a wonderful job with bringing in new characters, new songs and a beautiful story of why Elsa is who she is. If you're children enjoyed the first Frozen movie then I would highly recommend getting your hands on Frozen II because they are going to enjoy it as well.

Have you seen the movie already? If so leave a comment letting me know what you thought of it!

Epson SC-F570

When we moved to New Brunswick a couple years ago I put Payette Custom Creations on the back burner, moving across the country was difficult for me and I didn't know how business would handle the move (Big mistake, I know that now). I started working for Canadian Tire again, and everything was going well until it wasn't. My husband was sent away on course last summer and it was just going to be me and the four kids again for the summer, no big deal. But then this time because of working outside of the home, it was. Work had agreed to schedule around the kids softball and camp schedules and everything was going to be great. Until one day they said they weren't going to do that anymore. I wrote my letter of resignation a couple of hours after they let me know and I handed it in that day. You have to know, this was the second time. When we first found out my husband was going away I had given my notice, knowing that our summers are too hectic for the traditional work force. They didn't like that and came to an agreement with me that would allow me to stay, to work and be the mom I needed to be over the summer. So, it wasn't difficult to give that notice the second time. I meant it the first time when I said I needed to be available over the summer for my kids while my husband was and I definitely meant it the second time.

Now, here were are picking our business back up and going full force with it, because lets face it, the internet is everywhere and that's where most of our business comes from nowadays. I never stopped making things, I just slowed down but now I need to speed up again. I have bills to pay and kids to feed. We know now for sure that I am better off working from home and I intend to make the best of this life for our children. This life we have makes everyone happier than when I work outside of the home. So here I go, living my dream, expanding my business, doing new things. One long time goal of mine was to add sublimation, as many of you know, just before Christmas I had purchased a new Sublimation printer for our business. I did some research and decided to go out on a limb and buy an Epson SC-F570. When I ordered it I was under the impression from the website that the company had the item and would be shipping right to me and I would receive it within the week... Fast forward to January. The company that was freighting my printer across the country had finally received it in the city close to me and I was thrilled, thinking I'd get it the next day.

You have to remember I had been checking tracking every few hours for weeks by this point. Alas, it wasn't scheduled for delivery until the following Tuesday! Insert sadness, so close but so far! I discussed with my husband and decided that we would take the 45 minute drive to pick it up that day if the shipper would release it to me. And they did. Insert the happiest moment of the new year. 
I have been wanting to make the switch to Sublimation printing for a long time and to bring a new printer into the fold instead of spending hundreds, if not thousands on buying sublimation transfers.

So that's exactly what I did.

For those who know me personally you know I'm a go big or go home kind of person. And while this is a blessing it is also a curse because it can definitely get a girl in trouble from time to time.

I decided to take the leap. And I am happy to report that I did not fall flat on my face. I have been having so much fun with my new printer. I design my items in Photoshop and print them on my glorious beast of a printer. Then using my heat press, because with sublimation you have to use a heat press or convection oven, I personally use a heat press to apply the images PERMANENTLY to the mug, the cushion cover, socks, shirts, ornaments. Oh my gosh, I am having a blast.
The very first item I made was a wizard mug for one of my very best friends! There was definitely a learning curve to getting the heating and timing correct on my press but as for the printer it has made the most beautiful prints, perfect every time.

It was very easy to set up and right out of the box, okay crate, this monster came on its own wooden crate it's so big. I would recommend, as does Epson, having someone around to help you carry the printer and move it to wherever you'd like it to go. Not that it's heavy, considering the size it does not seem to be as heavy as expected. But it is awkward to manoeuvre on your own and of course for the money you spend on this beauty, you definitely don't want to have anything happen to it. Don't slip. Don't drop her.

Hahaha. So, when setting the printer up I did make an error. It didn't notify me to take tape off of the print head track box, I don't know what it's technically called but that works for me; and when I started the printer it made the most awful noise when that tried to move during setup. I knew exactly what it was, thankfully. But it still startled me. So I would suggest being careful to make sure you have removed all tape and all packaging from this printer before turning it on.

I made some socks for my daughter with her holding her puppy and his name on them. I was super excited to make them and give them to her. I think she loved them, I hope she did. 
I have been making so many beautiful items since purchasing this printer. Even my husband said he was very happy that I made this purchase. That brightened my day!

To say that I am in love with this printer would be an understatement!

Overall, I just wanted to make a post about how much I love my printer, I have not had any issues with it (except of course the first one which was mostly my fault).

I would highly recommend if you have a business or are thinking about starting a business that will have a printed Sublimation line that you do your research and consider investing in an Epson SC-F570 printer. I love this printer so much, the images are always so clean, crisp and beautiful. Every time I pull something off the press I am super excited about the finished product. I love them all and I would love to just keep them for myself! But What I love most is sharing the beauty of the finished product with others. So if you need a mug or tshirt or anything else please consider SC Custom Creations for your gift giving items.

As always, thank you for taking the time to read my review and have a wonderful day!

Frozen 2 Sing-Along in Select Theatres January 17th, 2020

Fans are invited to venture “Into the Unknown” alongside Anna and Elsa when Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” Special Sing-Along Engagement kicks off in select theatres nationwide on Jan. 17 for a limited time.

To get in the spirit of the special engagement, check out the sing-along version of the full “Some Things Never Change” sequence from Disney’s “Frozen 2” featuring the original song performed by Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, written by Academy Award® winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez. 

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Review

Ring in the new year with Disney’s most iconic villain:
“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” — which soared to No. 1 worldwide opening weekend and earned an
A CinemaScore and a 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes — releases on Digital in HD and
4K Ultra HD™ on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD on
Jan. 14, 2020. The thrilling sequel to 2014’s “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent and
Elle Fanning as her goddaughter Aurora, arrives home with brand-new bonus features, extended
scenes, outtakes and an exclusive extra for Digital consumers.

Bonus features take viewers behind-the-scenes with the all-star cast to explore the making of
“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.” Extended scenes reveal how Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer)
manipulates Aurora into questioning Maleficient and accelerating her wedding plans. Featurettes
include interviews with Jolie, who discusses Maleficent’s origins and the cast who portray the Fey,
and Fanning, who gushes over Aurora’s fairytale wedding. Filmmakers showcase the visual effects
behind the film’s stunning landscapes and the seemingly effortless flight of the Fey. Additional
extras include “You Can’t Stop The Girl,” a music video performed by Bebe Rexha, and hilarious
outtakes, ranging from uncooperative cats to uncontrollable giggles on set.


I have to admit, I never watched the first Maleficent movie but when this opportunity came up I was super excited to watch Maleficent: Mistress of Evil with my husband and children. Of course my children had watched the first one and were thrilled at the thought of seeing the second one as soon as it came.

We grabbed our popcorn, sat down and entered into this amazing fantasy world with flying creatures, fairies and a forest with a mind of its own. The children seemed more aware than I was of the characters which only peeked my own curiosity more to learn who they were and watch the first movie later on. I eagerly watched to see what would happen in this movie, quickly to realize who the real "evil" was. I was captivated enough by the characters to plot in my own mind what should happen to each.

I truly believe the sign of a great movie is when you become so involved that you plan their moves, you just get lost in the movie. I honestly haven't gotten lost in a movie in a very long time, and although I truly appreciate this movie, I wouldn't necessarily say that I got lost in it. BUT I definitely did love it. Enough to plan a movie night to watch the first one.

I think my favorite characters in this movie were the little fairies, it's the small things right?! They were so adorable and tiny, beautifully colored little helpers who definitely had important rolls to play. There were a few characters that I would have like to have seen with more of a part in the movie but that didn't take away from it at all. Overall , I think this movie had a lot of adorable characters and was so brightly colored in most scenes. I actually expected a more dark, scary, sort of movie, which is partially what kept me from watching the first one, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a movie I would recommend as a family movie night kind of movie. I am sure that we will watch it again soon, maybe even as a Maleficent marathon so I can watch the first one too!

Happy New Year!!!

Hi everyone, so I guess deciding right before Christmas, with four kids at home, was bad timing to try to start blogging every day again!

Story of my life.

So, here we are one week into January, 2020, I have been sick for the past few days but finally coming along. I haven't blogged since December 20th which I feel terrible about but my kids had the couple of weeks off of school starting at that time and life got away from me. As it often does. I will try much harder to post something everyday or as close to it as possible moving forward.

But, hey, at least Santa thought I was a good girl last year and he brought me some awesome new tools to add to my workshop. I will likely end up doing a review on them at some point in the future. They are coming in handy for my latest project...

With the kids are back in school now. My husband is finally back to work, after having 2 months off due to back surgery and recovery. It's just me and my store. Renovations continue on the store. I'm working on putting in a new, recycled, floor. I love it. I think it's beautiful and will look amazing once it is all done and I am super excited about the progress so far...

Well, it's been a pleasure but I have to go make some dinner and put my babes to bed. So I will end this here for now and look forward to posting something tomorrow...

Oh, I have a giveaway coming up so stay tuned for that.
