My name is Shannon "Dabling" hence the title :) I am a mother of 3, stay at home mom, Creative Memories Consultant, and photographer. I have been a consultant twice so far, and have had my home photography studio for 7 years.

My goal for the year 2010 is to "Focus on Photos" and my mission is to help others with the same goal.

I love what I do and have met the most wonderful people through both of my business's. I hope that I can continue helping others.

Monday Product Review: Gifts under $50

With Christmas coming around the corner (and will be here before we know it) Early Shopping can save you money and headache.

So I am going to start posting about those gift ideas that we want to put a lot of heart and thought behind, but not a lot of time or money.

So the Gift under $50 for today is the

Mini Everyday Display

mini display

This display makes great gifts for mom, grandmas, kids, and even dads.  This display is an open frame with a magnetic back. They come with matching magnets and mini clothespins. It can either been hung or it has an easel back for standing it up.

The mini display is 11.5x11.5 with an 8x8 opening. It comes in Black, White, or Chocolate for $35! You can order this directly from my site.

There is also a larger Everyday Display (well it's called the Everyday Display) and its 18x18 with a 13.5 x 13.5 opening and its $52.

I recently made one of these for my husbands grandma for her birthday this summer. I actually forgot about a gift, we always give her some sort of photo or memory gift. So being a consultant I had one of these in inventory. Luckily, because 5 minutes before we are to start loading the car, I thought "Oh my, What am I going to do for Grandmas present." I totally spaced it! So I looked around and remembered this frame.  I grabbed a few printed pictures, pulled out some paper for the background and quickly cropped and matted the few pictured I had and "TADA" a beautiful gift that looked like I spent a lot of time and money.


Happy Holiday Shopping
