Day 3 - Final 50% Off Coupon and Did you Know???

Well, to begin with, today is the last day I am offering a special 50% off coupon this month. In keeping with the Theme of St. Patrick's Day, today's file is called "IRISH NOTES".

It is a collection of 3 card fronts including the Erin Go Bragh Harp, Lucky 4 Leaf Clover Medallion and finally Intertwined Celtic Hearts. There is also a 4.75 x 6.75 card blank included!

As with the other files this week, the coupon code is limited to today only so if you would like to add these cute note cards to your collection, there is nothing better than 50% off!

The coupon code is: EC_0309_56974

Now...onto my "Did you know" question...I am if nothing else a fanatic for something other than my I know that is hard to believe, but I am. What could it be? Shoes? Clothes? Jewelry? Makeup? The answer to those is No, No, No and NO!

So here goes....tell me if this is a big surprise...but it's cool Kitchen Gadgets! I went to Sams Club at lunch and was wandering around a little when I got to their clearance area and what did I find??? You'll never guess, so I should just tell you, but I figure why tell you when I can show you?

Here it might be dweeby for some of you, but I have actually wanted one of these since I first saw them for sale a couple of years ago but they were WAY to cost prohibitive for me (think around $ 200!) Anyway, this is what was sitting in the clearance area for only $ 60! An AEROGARDEN and it came with bonus items...coooool!

So I had the perfect place in my kitchen to set it up and I did! So this is what it looks like when you put it all together. There I was in the kitchen and reading the step by step directions.

First thing it tells you is to fill it up with 3.5 quarts of water. Well, um...what does that translate into cups? I haven't a clue...math stuff you know. Fortunatly I do have a computer which after googling comes up with the answer 13.999 why doesn't the directions just say that?! Then I had to add the pods and the little domes and turn it on...can anyone say ahhhhhhhhhh!

When you turn it on based on what you are growing, there is a pump that pumps the water round and round and drips on the pods inside. Hence the hydroponic growing (like Future Town or World whatever it's called at Disney's Epcot - apogies for the Mouse Fanatics out there!). I dropped in some nutrients tablets and that's all I need to do. I should be seeing sprouting within the week...lets see how it works LOL! There are indicators when I need to add more water and nutrients...pretty exciting stuff...remember I am the person who also thinks the Ants are REALLY cool to watch!

Now the light has to stay on for 18 hours a day, luckily I can set the lights to turn off for 8 hours during the night..otherwise, I think that I would not do too well since I like total darkness at night! This kit came with 14 herbs. There is enough room for 7 so I picked out the ones I thought I would use the most. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works. If not, I did ask and was told that I could return it for any reason if I am not satisfied. I really hope and am keeping my fingers crossed that I will not be returning it.

Ok, so that is some of my news for today. Hope everyone is well and enjoys their day...after all, it's Wednesday and that means Saturday is just around the corner!

Take care everyone!

that looks way cool-sadly we have no counter space but we are doing a container garden on our deck this summer.

Can't wait to see if it works!
