Ellie Claire art journal make a great Holiday Gift!

Posted on November 16, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love the Ellie Claire Art Journals I received.  They are so beautiful, the pictures in them are fascinating.  I can’t get over all the pretty colors, and fantastic art work.  And, the quotes are so inspirational.  My sister loves them, too.  I gifted one to her, and she uses it daily.

I used different pens/markers in the book I kept, and let me tell you, there is no bleeding through the paper.  The paper is so thick, it’s great.  I also gave a book to my 21 year old, daughter, and she loves the thickness of the paper as well.  She uses her inspirational journal for college, and says the professor even loves it, and asked where to get her hands on one.

One of the sayings “Nature decrees that we do not exceed the speed of light.  All other impossibilities are optional.” is my favorite.  I love this saying, and it’s written by Robert Brault.  Another saying, “Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder.  Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of Your universe…I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all.” by Abraham Joshua Heschel is a great inspirational marker in my life.

The Illuminate Your Story book even has how to sketch fancy letters in it.  It’s amazing.  There’s also The Illustrated Word Coloring Journal, and Faith & Lettering Journal.  All of which are fascinating, and make you really look into your life.  I love them all, but had no use for all 3, so I was able to gift two out.  And, my sister, and daughter absolutely adore them, as much as I do.

Just Born Blanket Sleepers are Super Cute

Posted on November 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Just Born is an excellent company, and I recently received a “My 1st Christmas” blanket sleeper, with an angel on it.  It’s so cute, that I can’t wait to give it to my friend, for her little one.  I love the fabric, it’ll keep her baby nice and warm.  And, I love the stitched on Angel.  I wish I would’ve had something this cozy for my little man, when he was a baby, but he’s 7 now.

Just Born makes a lot of lovely clothes for little ones.  Their layout is extensive, and very heartwarming.  I love their stuff, and as a matter of fact, when my 7 year old was a baby, I used to buy Just Born, at Target!  I just really love this beautiful layette, and can’t wait to give it to my friend.

Just Born fits true to size, and is super soft, so you can know that your little one is cozy in it.  They have blanket sleepers, as seen above, as well as, layettes and more.

Just Born products are made with high quality products, and they are so wonderful for any child, family or friend.  I’m so thrilled to be able to give this to her on Tuesday.  She’ll be able to start wearing it on her little one right away.  Her little one is 6 months old, and the Sleeper is for a 6-9 month old, so it’ll fit her perfectly.  I’ll update this post, once she’s had a chance to wear the blanket sleeper on her little girl.

NoSweat Hat Liners are used by my Family

Posted on November 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

NoSweat

NoSweat hat liners have been a life saver.  When my husband, and Father-In-Law go out to cut grass, or work on either home, they can wear a hat liner, and know that their hat will be protected from sweat marks, and that their skin will be protected from acne.  They love these hat liners, and want me to order more.

NoSweat is a great brand, and lasts up to 2 weeks.  For my hubby and his father, they last longer!  It’s not that they aren’t working hard, and they sweat a lot, but it’s the great material they are made out of.

It is common for people to wear a hat while working out, traveling, doing outdoor recreations or simply rocking it because it goes with their outfit, but things can get pretty ugly under there fast.  NoSweat thin, disposable liners stick to the inside of headwear to instantly absorb sweat and prevent odors, stains and even acne. The liners are soft and lightweight and each one can last up to two weeks.

Roto-Rooter ~ Routine Maintenance

Posted on November 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews Roto-Rooter

I love using Roto-Rooter for routine maintenance.  It cleans out the pipes, and the septic system with ease.  Roto-Rooter has become one of my favorite products of all time.  My husband uses it, I just watch, but if I tried, there’s no doubt that I would be able to do the things he does with Roto-Rooter.

We use Roto-Rooter once a month, and it keeps all the pipes clear.  We don’t just use it when there’s a clog!  It’s best to run it through once a month, to keep clogs from happening.  And, me, with long hair, there’s always clogs in our shower.  Roto-Rooter really helps break down the hair, and get it flushed out of our system.

For the Holidays, when you have family/friends over, make sure you use Roto-Rooter, before the fact.  Then, you won’t have to worry about clogs later.  Roto-Rooter is a great product and I love using it in my home.

Why Roto-Rooter:

Roto-Rooter® is introducing a complete line of powerful and fast acting drain and septic care products: The Strongest National Brand.  Each has been specially formulated to meet the demanding requirements of professionals and homeowners who expect professional results.

Roto-Rooter products have more active ingredients than any other product in the market and the right viscosity to provide the fastest and best-in-category performance, but are safe for all types of pipes and septic systems. 

When you want professional results, demand Roto-Rooter!

Amish Wisdom Journals are So Amazing

Posted on November 9, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I received two Amish Wisdom Journals, and they are amazing.  With every page, theres a new fact, and room to write in it, because after all it is a journal.  My daughter, age 21, took one journal, and my mom took the other.  They love their journals, and carry them everywhere.

We love these journals, and my daughter keeps all of her homework, for college, written in hers.   And, my mom’s has her thoughts.  She’s getting older, and it’s good for her to write her thoughts down, especially while she’s getting so forgetful.

Amish Wisdom is so amazing.  It enriches the journaling experience with sage advice for practical living.  This high-quality journ features expressive images, lined blank pages, and decorative end pages.

Amish Wisdom from the Scriptures enriches the journaling experience with spiritual truths that convey the simple beloved proverbs that play a daily role in Amish speech, this beautiful lined journal offers insight into authentic “Pennsylvania Dutch” culture.

Quiet Fox journals make lovely gifts and are designed to suit every occasion, from jotting down daily errands to expressing the happy milestones of life.  Other Fox Chapel imprints include Design

BluNotes are Super!

Posted on November 9, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Blu Notebook

My daughter, 21, and husband, are arguing over who gets the amazing BluNotes notebook.  It’s this amazing graph paper, colored blue.  I love it too, but I usually let my family fight about who gets what products.  BluNotebooks are super cool, and Sarah wants to use it to draw her outfits for Cosplay.  Joe wants to use it for work.  So, between the two, I don’t know if I will give it to either.  I may just keep it, and use it myself.

Sarah does draw very well, and I’d love to see her Cosplay outfits drawn on.  But, Joe would use it for work, where he’s a supervisor, but not in charge of the prints.  I think it will become Sarah’s Blu Notebook, so she can bring Cosplay to life.

The BLU Notebook is the first ever sketching journal made from pages that have the look and feel of traditional blueprint paper (Without the smell of Ammonia!). BLU offers an aesthetically pleasing and soothing effect when using vibrantly pigmented white and coloured gel ink against the rich blue pages of BLU.

The Pages of BLU

  • Blue pages with a light blue grid
  • 10:1” grid within a finer 2:1 grid
  • 160m text / 4 points of thickness
  • Smooth finish with a velvet feel
  • FSC & SFI Certified Paper
  • Acid Free
The BLU Notebook
  • Dimensions 8.25” X 11”
  • 50 Pages
  • Durable cardboard cover
  • Spiral Binding with tear sheets
  • Flat lay

Once Upon a Book Club is Fantastic!

Posted on November 9, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I’ve never been so excited about a product.  I’ve been wanting to try Once Upon a Book Club for a while, so when it came across my desk, I couldn’t refuse.  It’s so cool how you get an amazing book, and products for certain pages of the book.  This month’s box was fantastic.  I don’t read much, but I really got into it, and now my daughter, age 21, wants to borrow it.  I am super excited about this amazing product.  You can get 1 month for $35, or 3 months for $100, so save yourself some money and go for the 3 month subscription.  You won’t regret it.

If you are an avid reader, you will love Once Upon a Book Club.  My daughter is borrowing this weekend, and she reads constantly.  She’s going to school to be a teacher, so she has to read a lot.  But, I’m sure she will love this as much as I do, and I’m not big into reading.  This was one of the most fantastic reviews that I’ve ever gotten to do though.  I was able to keep up, and understood what I was reading.  The book was so special to me.  And, the products that go with the book were amazing.

Once Upon a Book Club would be the perfect gift for someone, this Holiday Season.  They will love it, if they love to read, or even if they don’t get into it much.  I wasn’t sure how I’d react, but I’m so intrigued.  I loved it, and am definitely going to subscribe, after the rush of the Holidays.
