Scripture Stickies ~A Review and Giveaway~

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!

As a mom who has been educating her kids around the dining room table for more than 12 years now, I have learned the value of teaching through constant small reminders.  Some time ago, I began using the little sticky note method to help them learn different subjects and concepts easier.

I have found great success in being able to teach foreign language, spelling, and vocabulary using sticky notes that I write either the word, definition, or translation on the sticky note and put them around the house.  Constantly seeing the little lessons throughout the day helps our children to remember and really learn each lesson.

When Scripture Stickies, who follows that same concept by putting verses on little sticky notes that you then place throughout the house, asked me to review their product, I knew they would be a huge blessing for our family.

What a great idea!  Every time the kids see one of the Scripture Stickies, not only is it encouraging to their hearts, but it helps them to learn and memorize God’s word.  It is wonderful to hear the kids quoting the scriptures that are on the Scripture Stickies.

I have experienced numerous times when the first scripture that I read in the morning ends up being a theme for my whole day or God uses it as an encouraging word that I need during a difficult moment.

With so many girls in the house, the first place that I put the stickies was around the bathroom mirrors.  Those are the most often read and remembered Scripture Stickies of all of them!  *grin*

They are also in the kitchen, by the front and back doors, and on the door to the pantry.  Where else would you put them when you have teenagers?!

Scripture Stickies make a great gift, and they are a wonderful way of encouraging and sharing the word of God with someone who needs it!  They even have a Scripture of the Month Club that blesses you with a new pack of Scripture Stickies each month all year long.  (Also an awesome gift idea!!)

Enter in to win your own set of Scripture Stickies to keep or share!

How?  You know I like to make this easy!

Natural Linens ~A Review and Giveaway~

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!

Our family, like so many other families today, is always looking for ways to reduce our spending and give a little more wiggle room to our budget.  We also take great pride in producing less garbage than a family half our size, and I encourage our children to get creative and find new ways of further reducing our family’s garbage output.  (These are great lessons in stewardship for Mark and I and our children!)

When the wonderful family at Natural Linens contacted me, I saw this as a great opportunity to take another step in the direction of saving money, reducing waste, and I get to give a great organic product!

When looking over their store, I was intrigued by the thought of unpaper towels.  We go through a good bit of paper towels in this house, much to my aggravation.

Unpaper Towels

Being the retired cloth diaper pro that I am, the moment I opened up the lovely hand-wrapped package of unpaper towels I soaked them in a container of water for a few days.  (This greatly increases their absorbancy)

So, what did we use the unpaper towels to do?

  • They are awesome for cleaning glass and windows without leaving streaks or fuzz.
  • They worked beautifully when disinfecting the kitchen counters.
  • I was able to clean all of our doorknobs, door frames, and light switches with only one unpaper towel as opposed to 7 or 8 paper towels.
  • They make quick work of bathroom sinks and counters with only one unpaper towel for three bathrooms.

I love how thin, yet absorbent they are.  I much prefer them to wash cloths when cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen, and they are perfect southern napkins!

Next, I would love to make the switch to cloth coffee filters and tea bags!

Reusable Coffee Filters

Reusable Tea Bags

Now YOU get the chance to win a set of their fantastic unpaper towels!

Accessorizing is fun.

The right jewelry will highlight your playful side, accent your eye color, or add that pop to your outfit.

So, when I was contacted about reviewing and giving away multiple pieces of super cute jewelry, I decided I would love the opportunity to bless a work at home mom and my readers at the same time!

Where can you find this great selection of jewelry pieces that are super cute and inexpensive?   Frugal Fashionistas!  Thank you to Melissa for sponsoring this giveaway!!

What do they offer?  A variety of necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, hair jewelry, as well as jewelry for kids.  The best part about accessorizing with items from Frugal Fashionistas:  all items are $5.  That’s it!  The items for kids are even less.

Gorgeous chandelier earrings

Beautiful ring

Stunning necklace

This is a great way to gift the fashionistas in your life with beautiful pieces and still keep on budget.  You can also gift yourself with a gorgeous statement piece of your own.  *grin*

Before I move on to the best part, the part where I get to bless my readers with free jewelry, I want to share a little more information.  If you are looking for a way of adding to your family’s income and work from home, Melissa has a great opportunity for you.

A business can be started for only $40!! Everything is $5, but the children’s line is even less if you choose to carry it.

No catalogs. No shipping costs for guests. No waiting.

Knock, knock. Is this thing on?

I know it has been a little bit quiet here on the ole blog.  *ahem*

Okay, it has been far too quiet as life got incredibly loud.  Not loud in a bad way, but the kind of loud that has you falling in to bed at night exhausted but smiling.

This family is already loud all on its own, but that is another post for another time.  *grin*

So what’s coming down the pipe?  I am so glad you want to know!

There are posts about field trips, family adventures, big decisions, little blessings, and some giveaways.  Seriously, you are about to be “avalanched” with giveaways.

While I greatly enjoy being able to bless my readers with fantastic products, the best part about doing the review and giveaways is that you and I are promoting and supporting small businesses.  We are getting the word out about a product and a business that will bless a family and allow them to have a better life.  We are supporting a mom who is working from home  while managing a home or a dad who is trying to provide more for his children’s future.

We can be a blessing to those small businesses while blessing our own family and friends with wonderful gifts.

Stay tuned!  The first giveaway begins tomorrow!

All for the glory of God,

~Rhen
