Shopping Directory
MelissaStuff has recently added a Shopping Directory. Included in the directory listing is a list of participating companies. If you choose to pay for a listing in the shopping directory, you can also have a short paragraph summary about your business, a 125 x 125 screen shot of your homepage, and links to your site along with your Facebook and Twitter accounts. If you would like to be added to the directory, but do not see a category to which you belong, a new category can easily be added.

Sponsored Tweets
On Twitter, MelissaStuff reaches an entirely different demographic. If you are interested in having Tweets posted about your product, event or company, please contact us and we can arrange to have the information Tweeted as often as twice a day.

Twitter Party Sponsor
Twitter parties are a fun, exciting way to spread the word about you and what you have to offer. Generally lasting an hour, the conversation flows freely and easily while being strategically designed to reinforce your company and product. The best way to attract attention to your party is by offering some small giveaways to attendees for Tweeting about the party beforehand and attending the party itself. 

I love Twitter parties and I think you can tell by the energy I bring to them. I would love to help you promote your brand and help it go viral.

A few important notes:

For reviews, a standard size product (not sample size) should be sent to MelissaStuff and should have a minimum value of $100 unless it is a paid review.
  • Products will not be returned.
  • MelissaStuff will not be responsible for any shipping or duty costs.
  • Giveaway prizes are to be shipped directly to the winner by the sponsor.
Looking forward to working to make your company successful!

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
