    The Cutting Edge

    Some time ago, I was contacted by a company called CSN Stores asking if I’d like to review a product from one of their sites.

    Then, a few weeks ago, I received another offer to review a product, or host a give-away. As you might imagine, I jumped at the offer. I asked if I could do a review and host a giveaway and they said, “Yes! What a great idea.” Only they didn’t really say that, but they did agree.

    They have over 200 stores and offer just about you or I or anyone else for that matter could dream of. They have entire sites dedicated to pressure washers, rugs, massage chairs, and even dutch ovens. Sadly, I am still not not reviewing (or giving away for that matter) a massage chair. However, if you know anything about me and my never-ending pursuit to get a Saturn Sky for free, you know that I never give up.

    I scoured the CSN sites and decided on something, then changed my mind, then changed my mind again.

    I finally decided on these…

     If you’re reading here and thinking this whole review/giveaway of Ginsu knives is a bit weird, well, I’d say you’re probably right.

    If you’d had the kind of bad luck I’ve had with knives though, you might understand. I received a set of knives when McDaddy and I got married back in 1998. Then, I received a set for Christmas a few years ago. Both sets were pretty cheap and within months they wouldn’t cut squat. Well, actually they would cut squat, but not very well.

    I don’t have a long list of requirements for a set of knives except that they cut really well.

    I used the Ginsu knives a few days ago when I made Cola Chicken. The knives have really cool blades and stainless trim AND they are super sharp which is good because hello, cut much? They really worked for me!

     As I mentioned earlier, this is a review AND a give-away.

    To win, head over to CSN Stores and head back here to tell me one of your favorite products!

    Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address so you can be contacted if you win. A winner will be chosen courtesy of Random.Org on September 28, 2010 at 11:00pm ET.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I received a set of Ginsu knives to facilitate this review, and a lucky reader will receive a set of their own, however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own.

    Congratulations to Commentor #9 – Renegades

    Thanks to all of you who entered and a big thanks to CSN Stores for this great review/giveaway.

    Go Big Or Go Home!

    It probably comes as no surprise that I love to take photographs of my boys.

    And my hubby.

    And Saturn Skys.

    Pictures make me all happy and giddy.

    Big poster print pictures make me even giddier.

    Like I say, “Go big, or go home!”

    So when uPrinting dot com contacted me about hosting a give-away, you can just about imagine that the giddyness and such was almost more than I could handle. At uPrinting, Color printing services are available for a host of custom products.

    Online Poster Printing has generously offered one 18×24 high-gloss, semi-gloss print to one lucky reader. Their print posters would make a great addition to any room in your home or office.

    I know this because uPrinting print posters adorn the walls of our playroom. And they make me smile every time I walk into the room.

    This give-away will run through the month of May.

    Give-away Details -

    a.        Shipping: FREE UPS Ground Shipping

    b.        Eligibility: Limited to US Residents only

    c.        You must be at least 18 years old to enter.

    A winner will be drawn at random on Thursday, May 27, 2010.

    To enter, leave a comment telling me what makes you giddy!

    That’s all.

    Good luck!
