When I picture the windows open in a room, I imagine warm sunshine streaming through as the wind gently blows the curtains. Fresh air hits me and I am compelled to take a deep breath. The refreshing energy fills my soul. Of course there are only certain seasons when it's practical to open the windows, but my goal is to fill my heart, home, and family with a beautiful serenity that always makes me think the windows are open!

Earn Spending $$ for your DIY Projects

I wouldn’t normally use my blog as a way to advertise or promote something, but knowing these are hard times and everyone is looking for more ways to make an extra buck I thought I’d share.

Search & Win

Now, I’m usually a VERY skeptical person when it comes to online money making deals.  I do my research and almost always realize it’s not worth entering my personal information or risking being scammed.  But a friend turned me on to one and I’ve been trying it for the last few months.  I’m very pleased and wanted to share it with you.

It’s an easy way to earn a little spending money that’s actually safe, easy and free.  It’s a search tool called Swagbucks.  By using this search tool, I can “win” points which I use towards prizes and gift cards.  In just a few months time I’ve already cashed in for $75 in Amazon gift cards. 

Woohoo!! That’s not bad for free money!!

Search & Win

Of course, at I first I didn’t want to leave my beloved Google search engine.  We’d been besties for the last several years and got along great.  But then I found out that Swagbucks is powered by Google.  Woot!  This means that I get the same search results back from my searches.  The layout is just different on the Swagbucks page.

So, now I’m doing my searches just like before AND getting MONEY, MULLAH, DINERO, BUCKS!!!

(btw, I just used my Swagbucks search engine to lookup how to spell dinero and won 11 swagbucks!!  It's so easy!)

I love free money.

Search & Win

So, if you think this is something you’d like to try, please click on any of the links in the blog post or the link in the sidebar.  That way Swagbucks can thank me for referring you.

Thanks gals and happy earning!!
