March Madness: Round 2

Good morning, Highlowaha! It's Katie here today to bring you another match-up in our March Madness competition! March Madness is a month-long competition we are hosting among eight teams from across the country. Each team is composed of 5 or more fierce competitors and they met to develop a line-up of their most creative ideas, products, websites, recipes, etc from the past year. Beginning two weeks ago, these teams were pitted against one another and the competition began. After the opening round, the competition was narrowed down to four remaining teams.

The first two of these four teams competed earlier this week and the California Golden Girls came away with the victory and moved on to the finals. Today, we are gathering together for the match between the final two of four teams. Our competitors today are the Texas Tidbits vs. the Wisconsin Cheese Hens. I will share the number 2 idea from their line-ups and you the readers will vote on a winner. So, let's get to it!

The Photo Purse
This is either a 8x10 or 5x7 black purse with clear plastic sides to insert a photo. This is a great idea for displaying photos of your children, pets, a favorite landscape, flowers- the sky is the limit. This idea was introduced to our team by Hen Christine who actually markets these to local boutiques, etc. The photos show an example of photos of children- this was a mother's day gift to myself and also a gift to a mother-in-law. We can honestly say that we got stopped constantly by people commenting on how cute it is!

***OR***

Frownies
We love "Frownies"!! We can't afford Botox (nor would we get it, too scared!), but we want to look young and worry free, so we swear by these. Plus all the movie stars love them. You just wet them and wear them on your "trouble" spots to help retrain your facial muscles for a more relaxed, carefree look. You no longer have to put up with those pesky furrow forehead lines or those tiny #11 lines between your eyes. Check out the website for all the details. http://www.frownies.com


How to Vote
:
Vote for the idea you consider most winning by simply making a post in today's comment section, indicating either "Purse" or "Frownies". Votes must be cast by 7:00 p.m. CST.

Signing off until tomorrow...

I keep saying that I feel like I've aged 10 years since having Lily and taking this slightly more stressful job. I think the "frownies" might be in line for me in the future.

So...my vote goes to "Frownies".

Cristine said...

I vote purse.
Although I don't carry a purse - it's too small for all the junk that I need (ie crayons, transformers, toys, tissues, wet wipes, should I go on...)
Good ideas today ladies
PS- Heather, you're not alone with feeling that kids age you. I say that William is going to be the death of me with all this craziness.

Katie K said...

I vote purse. I have seen some of these and they can be quite cute. I especially like it when the photos are black and white to match with the scheme of the purse.

Purse... I love that...used to have a MaryKay one (for samples, really) that I put my art cards in!

Cruise Director said...

I'm going to vote Frownies because I've seen Margaret's skin and THEY WORK!! :)

Margaret said...

Hi there! I have worked for Neimans and I have worked for Lancome and have used some of the best skincare out there!! But they best thing you can do for your face is the FROWNIES!! It helps you retrain your facial muscles so those fine lines on your forehead and between your eyes soften. You don't realize how much you move your face at night and these help to stop it. What? Don't want to sleep with your honey with these on your face? Wear them around the house... doing laundry, gardening, no big thing! Just 3 hours a day will make a difference but overnight is awesome.

Lots of movie stars and make up artists swear by them and so do I and my pretty much wrinkle free face. :)

(Thanks Cheryl!!)

Frownies!!!!

Melanie said...

Frownies sound fantastic!

purse! Cute, cute!

Frownies get my vote...

Margaret said...

And I swear I do not work for frownies...

But you do not have to buy the whole kit...

You can get the one basic pack for about 18 dollars... I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond in Dallas.

Claudia said...

Oooohhhhhh....

They both sound so good. I DEFINATELY could use the frownies, but I also have a love of anything even mildly archival related.

I'm going to have to think about it a little longer. I'll be back later in the day.

Quynh said...

Karina said...

Cruise Director said...

Ha! Ha! Hi Holly!

I'm snickering at our comments about Margaret because it would have been funny if we added, "And she's old!" hee, hee. Because we have some young folks here at HLA. See frownies work. I love you, Margaret!!!

Margaret said...

Cruise Director said...

I'm old, too!

Cruise Director said...

Bean Counter!! Check again... I show the score Purse 9 to Frownies 11.

Katie K said...

Cheryl, I'm still adding up 10 for purse and 11 for frownies.

Cruise Director said...

Nope, Nope! You are correct! Purses 10, Frownies 11

My apologies... I was missing someone in the purse section when counting on screen.

You are a rocking Bean Counter!!

Peggy said...

I'm old... I like my lines, but I could always use a cute purse... especially one that is noticeable... because it's all about me!

Devil Dog said...

6:08 CST and I haven't placed my vote yet. Let's see... I'm too am getting older and could benefit from the magic that frownies apparently work.

On the other hand... my nickname in college was Captain Kodak because I LOVED taking pictures. So, a new way to display photos has real appeal as well.

I'm a Libra - the sign of the scales. Back and forth, back and forth, pros and cons, back and forth. Hmmm... but we're also the sign of fairness and justness, so I have to be fair.

That's it. I'll flip a coin. Heads = Frownies, Tails = Picture Purse. Matthew flipped it for me. It's up. It's on the floor. Picked up. Flipped over on top of his other hand and it's a..... Tails. Picture frame!

That probably leaves Margaret frowning. The good news is she has the perfect product for wiping it away!

Layne said...

it's definitely a tie for between both. great ideas. Although, i think that the purse is an adorable idea.

Anonymous said...

You would need the purse to carry the frownies in, so I have to vote PURSE!

tosh said...
