Scripture Stickies ~A Review and Giveaway~


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~


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!

You know me, I like to make entering giveaways and getting additional entries easy.

Danielson Designs Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed!  You are invited to take a moment to visit Danielson Designs by Poiema Place to do a little of your Christmas shopping!

     I was extremely excited when Rozlynn of Danielson Designs by Poeima Place contacted me about reviewing one of their products and hosting a giveaway.  Just by Rozlynn’s email I knew this was going to be not only fun for me, but fun for you.  

     A little background.  Rozlynn is a work at home mom, (Poiema Place) who is an independent rep for Danielson Designs.  Danielson Designs is a company who prides itself on being eco-friendly, based on strong values, understanding the importance of quality products being made in America, and giving back as much as they can.  Danielson Designs really blew me away with not only their commitment to environment and people, but also to quality products.   All of their signs and frames are made of recycled wood, and all paints used are green by being water-based.  How can I not get excited about checking out what they do?

     Rozlynn gave me the choice of which product I wanted to review.   I was a kid in a candy store!  So many beautiful things to choose from.  It was not easy!  I finally chose a Welcome sign.  I wanted something to welcome guests in a personal way from our family.  To pass on a blessing to them from us. 

     The designer in me got to come out to create!  I have to be upfront with you and share that I am not the world’s most artsy-craftsy person.  I wish I was, but I am not.   With Daneielson designs that is all okay. 

     I have been on other “you are the designer” sites before, and I fully expected to have to jump through all of the same hoops to make something into what I had pictured in my head.   Not so!  It was so easy, and I got to compare several different designs at one time.  Loved it! 

     When I received my sign I was very impressed with the packaging.  There was no way my sign was going to be damaged!  It was securely packed and surrounded by recyclable paper shreds.  Then I pulled out my sign ,and it was like opening a present.  The attention to detail made it even better. 

     Now to the best part.  I get to give away not one, but TWO Danielson Designs by Poiema Place products to my readers.  TWO!!  Thank you Rozlynn for being so generous! 

     Am I going to make you jump through a bunch of hoops just to be able to enter?  Of course not.  I don’t roll that way.  There is only one thing you have to do to enter, and that is pop over to Poiema Place and design something for yourself.  Pick anything from their fantastic selection to personalize any way you want. 

Here are a few examples of what you can do.



Be inspirational with your favorite quote.






 A beautiful frame for your adorable pooch.






How about a picture of you when you were little in a frame personalized just for your mom?






                         Or maybe something to remember your kids’ time at camp.  




Is there a family who is special to you that you would like to gift with a monogram sign designed for their family?





Here is a great personalized gift for someone who is expecting a baby.  A sign with the baby’s name on it and a special blessing from you to them.



There are so many choices in signs, monograms and frames.  You can create some beautiful, unique and personalized gifts for the special people in your life.  A great way to say thank you to someone, give as a birthday or Christmas gift, or for yourself.

     Here is how you can win your CHOICE of Danielson Designs by Poiema Place products.  Like I said, pop over to Poiema Place, and look over the beautiful products they offer.  Take a moment and design one for yourself, then come back here and tell me in a comment what you liked and how you personalized it.  I am very interested to hear some of the creative ideas you come up with.

Wee Huggers Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed!  Check for new giveaways.

     There is a new cloth diaper that is taking the world by storm, and it has knocked my socks off!   

     Over the years I have tried many different cloth diaper types, styles and materials.   Of all of the AIO’s I have tried, I have yet to find an AIO I actually liked, looked cute and it didn’t leak everywhere.  I got so tired of changing outfits every time I changed an AIO. 

     Well, Wee Huggers has given me hope!  The wonderful WAHM’s behind Wee Huggers sent me this badboy to try out. 

     The moment I opened the package I could tell that this diaper was different.  It has a completely different feel to it.  Like nice clothing.  It has substance to it, yet was not bulky in any way. 

     The next step was to try it on Ms. Dimples (2 mo).   It fit her beautifully with plenty of room to grow.  There were no gaps around the legs or back.  The closures held firmly and securely.  This diaper is made out of such nice material that you want to show it off!  How adorable it is under little dresses!   

     My Wee Huggers AIO washed extremely well and retained its shape, softness and fantastic look.  I will definitely be adding a few more of these to my cloth diaper stash!

A little more info:

Outer Material – Bamboo PUL
Inner Material – 70% Bamboo / 30% Organic Cotton French Terry
6 layers of 14.5 ounce weight French Terry Bamboo blend. Cotton made and milled in the USA. Organically Certified. Bamboo grown in Asia and milled in USA.

All fabrics have been whitened with hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine bleach. No optic whiteners have been used. Latex free elastic. Hook and Loop closures. No additional cover is necessary.

    The ladies at Wee Huggers has not only generously donated one of the AIO’s for me to test and review (thank you!), they have also donated an AIO ($ 23.95 value) for one of my readers to win.  One very lucky reader will win one of the AIO’s in their choice of color:
