Crafty Haul Post Part Three!

28 Jan

The last few weeks I have been sharing some of the crafty goodies I picked up over the last several months.

Today I am going to be showing the new Lawn Fawn products I have picked up. Most of it is older stuff, but it is new to me!

I took advantage of some sales at my local store, as well as during Lawn Fawn’s annual sale.

Here is what I got:

Year Two Dies:

Lawn Fawn - Lawn Cuts - Year Two

Duh-Nuh Stamps:

Pumpkin Spice Stamps:

Hello Border Die:

Lawn Fawn - Lawn Cuts - Dies - Hello Border

Snow Day Remix 6×6 Paper Pad:

OH, and I also won two things straight from Lawn Fawn!
I got the Spooky Village Stamps and Dies, so that was pretty cool!

Lawn Fawn Clear Stamps - Spooky Village
Lawn Fawn - Lawn Cuts - Spooky Village

So, that is all of my new Lawn Fawn goodies! Pretty fun, right?

Now, I have some serious playing to do! 🙂

Choose Kindness: 3-Minute Devotional Inspiration for Kids

26 Jan

Choose Kindness is a children’s devotional written by JoAnne Simmons.
My Thoughts: So, I don’t like to write not-nice things about a book because the author spent a lot of time and energy creating said book, and that is nothing to sneeze at.
I like the idea that we all need a little more kindness in our lives, and it is a good thing to study, but I just did not care for how this book was set up.
Each entry starts with a scripture, and ends with a “think about it” question (I liked that) and there is a prayer in the middle.
The prayer is written as if the author is talking to God. This would be fine, except it is written how maybe the author prays? It is very wordy, and I don’t think it is how a child would pray at all. It seems very specific to the person writing this book.
This section could have been much more user-friendly had it either been written to the child as a devotional-style passage, or simplified greatly so that a child could repeat it as a prayer to God.
Overall, I felt this book wasn’t as user-friendly as it could have been, which is too bad, because I do like the idea behind the book.
Unfortunately, this is a book I would not recommend without some changes.
I would like to thank Barbour Publishing, Inc. for providing me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Crafty Haul Post-Part One!

14 Jan

I picked up several crafty items over the past several months with all of the holiday sales. I also got a few things from my hubby for our anniversary, and also a few for Christmas.

So, thought I would start the new year by posting about them so you could see what I got!

Today I am going to share one of my new favorites. I have absolutely fallen in love with Hello Bluebird stamps and dies. They are so cute, and the dies are so inexpensive, which is really nice!

I didn’t previously own any, but I do now!

Here are the ones I picked up:

Frosty Friends Stamps:

Tropical Foilage Dies:

That’s quite a bit, but I did save up for a while to get them, and of course waited for a Black Friday sale! 🙂

I did manage to use some of the Hello Bluebird as well as some Lawn Fawn patterned paper on a few Christmas cards, but otherwise, I haven’t had much time to dig in to everything.

I am looking forward to playing with all of it here in the new year, so watch for some more cards coming soon!
