Springtime is Here!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love springtime because I can start my gardening again! One day I'll have something more than a few containers that last more than a few weeks-months in the Florida sun.  For now, all of my plants are in a container garden.  Right now I already have some flowers and basil going, and hope to add more while out on my maternity leave.

Miracle-Gro has come out with Expand ‘n Gro™  Concentrated Planting Mix.  It gives up to three times the flowers and vegetables compared to native soil.  Who doesn't want their plants to yield more without extra effort? It also improves your soil for years after you use it. It feeds your plants for up to 6 months!  I am definitely planning on using Miracle-Gro Expand 'n Gro on my garden this year.  I'm personally going to use it for my plants in pots, but you can use it on plants in the ground as well.  If you leave a comment on this post you could get a sample size to try out!  What would you use it on? It's such an easy way to prep your garden for the spring and summer!  I can't wait to try it out.

clipix- a new way to organize your online goodies!

I've just been introduced to a cool new way to organize the fun things that you find online- clipix! The best part about clipix is that it is free, and it's useful! I really like that you can customize the privacy settings so if you don't want to share your clipboard, you don't have to;  it can be visible to just you, or to your friends. I also love that you can have collaborative clipboards that your friends and family can add to.  Mutliboards are cool too- you can have a holiday category, with individual boards for each holiday but they are still connected to the holiday category. 

How do you do it?  The first thing you'll want to do is add the Clip button to your tool bar so that when you find something all you have to do is click "Clip" and it will pop up with the pictures on that website so you can pick which one, and then what clipboard you want to add it to.  It's super easy and super fun! You should sign up and add me as a friend when you do!  


What kind of things will you use clipix for? Currently I'm having fun clipping fabulous shoes!

Clipix even has an iPhone app! There is so much you can do with Clipix, I've only barely scratched the surface myself, but I can't wait to keep clipping away!  Please let me know if you sign up, I'd love to see what you're clipping!
