Michael W. Smith: Sovereign CD Giveaway! #SkySpillsOver #FlyBy

**This is a sponsored post.  I received the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.
Michael W. Smith, one of the Christian music industry's most enduring and well-loved artists, releases his first album, SOVEREIGN, with new label partner, Sparrow Records, on May 13, 2014. The multi-platinum artist and 3-time Grammy award winner returns with his fourth album of worship and first since 2008's A NEW HALLELUJAH. In a career that boasts album sales of over 15 million, Smith's previous worship projects alone have sold well over 3 million albums which is a testament to the connection that these albums make and the trust that Smith has earned over the years in giving voice to the hearts of millions of fans around the globe.

Check out the music video for his song "Sky Spills Over" below.  Here's a quote from Michael W. Smith about this video:

"I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER. It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night. My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project. But what made this project even more special was that 3 of my own grandkids were in the video. This video was a lot of fun to make. I hope people enjoy it!"

“Music is such an important component of animation. Not only does it set the mood but it also tells the story,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “The Looney Tunes cartoons we chose for this compilation represent some of the very best musically-driven shorts we have in our library. We’ve added some popular favorites and some rarer shorts that are not seen very often. Now Looney Tunes fans can have all their musical favorites together on one disc.

Summer Fun - Thrifty Tip Series!

Today is the last day of school for my kids.  I am a work from home mom so I will have to find ways to entertain my kiddos while still getting my work done.  I counted the days that my kids are off school and started a list of ideas to keep them entertained for those "I'm so bored" moments.  Each day I am going to post something from our summer fun list that we tried.  I will also post the cost of each activity.

We are trying to save money to build a house so we will be having a stay-cation and not going on a traditional summer vacation.  We will be taking a week off in July and will be tourists in our own city!  We also plan on doing lots of swimming at my in-laws' and our city pool. 

So please follow along with us and feel free to share your thrifty summer fun ideas as well!
