Crazy Sweet Tuesday {Sponsored by KICMount} & Giveaway

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I am introducing you to my new favorite kitchen gadget: the KICMount!

The KICMount is your iPad’s new best friend, seriously. The first thing I thought when I heard that the KICMount is a magnetized case for my iPad was that I’d no longer need to print any recipes. My second thought? That I could finally watch The View and Grey’s Anatomy while I bake. And the KICMount didn’t disappoint!

The KICMount is a plastic case for your iPad. You simply snap it on, easy peasy. (Seriously, it was harder to take off our iPad’s existing case then to get this baby on.) The back of the case has very strong magnets attached so that the case will stick to any metal surface.

And yes, the magnets are strong. Believe me, I am SO careful with our iPad. I’m so afraid of it dropping! But once I stuck this on my fridge, it held super tight! I was making these bars one morning, which I adapted from these. Instead of printing out my recipe, I just pulled up the old one on my iPad and went to work.

Then I was done with that recipe and decided to catch up on TV while I made cookies. Seriously, that’s what our iPad is used for 80% of the time – TV. 19% we use it for music and 1% everything else. When The View was over I switched to Pandora and rocked out to Gwen Stefani.

You know another great use for the KICMount? Keeping sticky hands off the iPad. Jordan uses it almost exclusively as her own personal TV. If she was a bit younger, you can bet your bottom dollar I would have been playing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for her on the iPad while it was stuck to my refrigerator. Keep the kids close, but the iPad closer!

This is such a simple concept I’m jealous I didn’t think of it first. But I didn’t…the smart people at KICMount did. And you Crazy for Crust readers are in luck, because one of you will win a KICMount! You can’t tell me your husband wouldn’t LOVE one of these? It’s a techie tool – perfect for the holidays!

You can find KICMount online, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

  23. Hey Dorothy!
    Thanks for the party!

    Quick question – which Genesis theme did you choose when you went from Blogger to WP? I know you did a series on that awhile back, and I should have pinned it! Anyway, I’m getting ready to make the big switch, and looking at choosing a theme. This one seems to be working well for you! So nervous to royally screw everything up – so I’m asking advice from someone who has been through it :)


    P.S. – I’m going to re-read that series. Do you have a link to the first post?

  24. How handy would that magnet thing be? Having cleaned my share of peppermint and cookie dough off of mine this season, I can see a lot of value in that. Speaking of peppermint….one more linked this week. I’m addicted! I am also going to link up my daughters Peppermint Party. It is really cute!
