How to Get Your Great Sportsman on the Cover of a Magazine

What an honor to be on the cover of a magazine. It feels like you finally made it! Hats off to my son Scott for making the cover of Outdoor sports! Now the real story…….…..

Scott Sportsman of the Year
I was looking for a unique gift and found the magazine covers offered at Walgreen’s photo department. You will need to set up a Walgreen’s account and add your photo. Under the ‘prints’ tab, select magazine covers and click on the Select Now button. At the next screen select View All to see all the cover selections and click on the cover of your choice. If your photo is not appearing in the left area under Your Photos, you can upload a photo at this time. Click and the photo and drag it onto the magazine cover. Simply and easy! Make certain the photo is position correctly on the cover.

 

To be perfectly honest, I had to crop and adjust the size of my photo several times to get the picture aligned. I was having problems getting my son’s head and the alligator positioned on the cover. It was well worth it though! Once you have the photo positioned on the cover as you like, save your work and check out. Pick up your magazine cover at a local Walgreens. Do not forget to add any coupons/discounts before checking out!


For an extra punch to the gift, I purchased a sportsman magazine and glued the photo cover onto the magazine cover. It worked great! I also typed up an article and glued to one of the inside pages of the magazine.

Boiling Eggs Don’ts My Review of Eggies as Seen on TV Product

Boiling eggs should be easy! This is my try with this As Seen on TV Product.

 

First you wash and dry the plastic egg containers.  Second you rub,not spray, cooking oil on the inside of the containers. Crack you raw eggs shells and place the yolk and white of the eggs into the oils container.   After securing the screw on tops, you place the raw egg filled containers into a boiler of cool water, bring to a boil, and boil up to 20 minutes depending on the size of the eggs.

While boiling, some of the egg white leaked out into the water. Once the eggs have reached the hard boil stage, removed the containers and cool slightly with cold water.  Open the plastic container and remove the eggs.

Now I see why these Eggies were being sold at the Dollar Tree Store.  So glad I did not purchase these when they were advertised on TV at a much higher price than $1 a box!!!

IT IS SO MUCH EASIER to place eggs in their own shells into cool water, bring water to boiling point, place a lid on, remove from heat, and let set 15-20 minutes until cooked.
