HOME & FAMILY on Hallmark

November 4, 2014

After a couple slow months of pitching, working away, and putting my nose to the jewelry and photo grindstone, I decide to take a break and return to my first love, TV and Tech. The result? A fun little story that includes some really great tech gifts for the holidays. Yup HOLIDAYS. It is after Halloween, so all efforts are now in full swings towards Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas. Not sure where to start the gift ideas? Start with me on Home and Family tomorrow on Hallmark Channel.
