GeekMyTree Tree Effects with special offer!


I wanted to put a small Christmas tree in my office this year, so I was really excited when I was given the opportunity to review a Tree Effects pre-lit tabletop tree. I haven't received it yet, but I wanted to let you know about it ahead of time because they have a promotion going on right now for pet lovers out there. 

Tree Effects was first introduced through Kickstarter in March 2017, and the project was completely funded within 48 hours! Tree Effects delivers the experience of the original GeekMyTree GlowBalls seen on Shark Tank on a tabletop tree for a fraction of the original price.

Based in Grand Haven, Michigan, GeekMyTree appeared on Shark Tank in December 2015. On the show, the company introduced its hassle-free way to create sophisticated, brilliant, full-color light shows on full-sized Christmas trees, garnering an investment from Kevin O'Leary. GeekMyTree's patented and artistic technologies have propelled the company to a leadership role in full-color, consumer-based, light show systems.

Tree Effects offers a light show with 50 full-color light patterns, changeable light caps, and a wireless remote for only $49. The product is perfect for people who want to add a little Christmas cheer but have limited space or simply don't want the hassle of a large tree.

For a limited time, you can get FREE Pet Paw Caps when purchased with Tree Effects. Discount applied at checkout. Click here to for your coupon.

BRICK LOOT -- What's Inside?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received product and/or compensation in exchange for my honest opinion.


It's Black Friday. Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday. And, of course, 2 days later, we have Cyber Monday. What's a shopper to do? I have a suggestion. And I have a secret. Promise you won't tell my grandson? Okay. I got him this awesome gift for Christmas. Actually, it was sent to me to review, but he's the one that will find it under the tree. Just don't tell him, okay? 

Have you heard of BRICK LOOT? If you have a LEGO or Brick fan on your gift list, then you really need to read this review. 

BRICK LOOT is a box subscription company for LEGO and Brick fanatics! Subscribers will receive a monthly box filled with unique, custom, and never-before-seen items including custom LEGO kits, LEGO mini-figures and more. BRICK LOOT boxes are filled with 4 - 8 items that were hand-picked by Brick specialists who diligently search for the newest and coolest products for your kids to collect. 


Now, for me, the very best thing about BRICK LOOT is that it was invented by a 9-year-old. Seriously. Nine years old! But that makes sense, doesn't it? Who better to understand what kids love than a kid himself?

I was pleasantly surprised by the selection in my November box. And I think my grandson will love it. What's not to love? Check it out:



Green Grandma readers are in luck! They get to save 12% by simply using the code "usfamily12" at checkout. Click here to get started! You're guaranteed to be the "cool" mom, dad, grandparent, uncle, aunt, or friend when your LEGO or Brick lover opens their very first box!

Thanksgiving 2017. What I'm thankful for.


It's been quite the year for me. While 2016 was marked by the deaths of 20 family members or friends, 2017 has been a respite from that kind of intense grief. For that, I'm thankful.

It's been a busy year. Nearly one year ago, I stepped outside my comfort zone and, at 59 years of age, stepped foot into a new office and a new career. I hadn't worked full-time outside of my home since 1982 -- yes, you read that correctly -- yet, here I was starting something new. From voice-over talent, writer, editor, blogger, and speaker to COO/manager of a non-medical in-home care agency in Pittsburgh, I accepted a challenge and lived up to it. For that, I'm thankful.

It's been a scary year, or at least a scary October. On October 3rd, my 70-year-old husband had a massive heart attack and almost died. I was leaving for work when he yelled down and asked me not to leave. Moments later, he told me to call 911. Within minutes, there were six emergency response personnel crowded into our bedroom. As they put him in the ambulance, I was struck with the realization that my husband was dying. My 5'10", 172-pound husband with a cholesterol reading of 121 and triglycerides at 125, was dying.

They didn't fool around once he arrived at the hospital. Rather, they rushed him into the cath lab where they discovered a 99% blockage in his main left anterior artery. Twice, while he was on the table, they had to shock his heart back into rhythm. Two stents later, he was out of the woods.

The thing is, he was this close to death. Had I left for work a few minutes earlier, this post would have a different message and I would bear the title widow once again. But I didn't leave earlier and, today, I'll enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with him by my side. For that, I'm thankful.

This year there have been many more causes for me to lift my heart heavenward and utter the words, "Thank You." But the above three rise above the rest. Every day, I'm met with reasons to sing praises. Sometimes, I have to dig a little deeper to find them, but they're always there.

Today, as you gather around the table to enjoy food, family, and friends, don't skip the most important part. Say thanks for the many blessings in your life. After all, gratitude costs us nothing, but the rewards are deep in riches.

Happy Thanksgiving! Tell me, what are you most grateful for?
