Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Scratch and Draw Patterns

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Scratch & Create – Scratch and Draw Patterns

It has been brought to my attention that while I am talented in certain areas, drawing is not one of them. I am always trying to expand my hand and learn to draw, so when I saw the Scratch & Create: Scratch and Draw Patterns Book I was intrigued.

The Scratch & Create: Scratch and Draw Patterns Book is a 20 page book that has an image on one side, and a scratchable surface on the other side in which you “scratch” the image. There are spirals, tangles, and geometric patterns that have simple lines and shapes. The illustration on the facing scratch-off page gets scratched off with the specialized stylus tool to reveal a contrasting background to the color on the page.

Each page is perforated so you may keep or gift your image. I will say if you are looking for an easy image to create, this book may not be for you – it is for more advanced drawers but that is not to say it is difficult, just takes more a drawing hand. If you have a fan of drawing in your life this would be a great gift to challenge and expand their abilities.

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: goDog Holiday Collection Dragon

If there is a word or two I would use to describe Meadow, it would have to be toy destroyer. After I moved into the house with Meadow and began looking around I saw a variable graveyard of chewed toys. From what I can tell she likes to rip the insides out, death by extreme chewing.

In the course of the past couple months I have learned that having durable chew toys is one of the most important things I can provide for her. When I saw the goDog Holiday Collection Dragon with Chew Guard Technology. With the manufacturing technology Chew Guard adds a super tough durable liner to toys making it much more difficult for dogs like Meadow to chew through it.

Since I am a Game of Thrones fan, I knew that I would love having the dragon, and as it turns out it is Meadow first dragon.

Each seam is diuble stitched and reinforced which gives added toughness when dogs get playing.

The jury is still out on long-term sustainability but so far it is in one piece, which is already a win in my house and for Meadow.

Many times when I sit on hold on the phone, I end up doodling – creating shapes and images, but without much order.

From the moment I saw the cover of Kawaii Doodle Cuties – Sketching Super-Cute Stuff From Around the World by Pic Candle for my holiday gift giving I knew it would be filled with cuteness.

The book is broken into categories such as Adorable Food, Precious Nature & Natural Wonders, Enchanting Architecture & Monuments, Lovable Animals & Birds, Charming Transportation, Fetching Fashion, Everyday Cute and Fun Time! Each page is a different “doodle” and provides full illustration about how to draw over 65 images.

As it turns out, Kawaii translates to “cute” which makes the name and theme appropriate for each page in this book. The greatest quality this book has is that it is appropriate for beginners to seasoned artists.

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Savannah Bee – Winter White Honey

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Savannah Bee Company – Winter White Honey

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Savannah Bee Company. This post may contain affiliate links, but this in no way influences the review to follow.

When I think of sweet, honey is the one flavor that comes to mind. When the chilly months arrive, there is nothing better then toast with honey or adding honey to a hot tea.

When saw that Savannah Bee Company’s Winter White Honey was available I knew I wanted a jar.  One reason is that Savannah Bee uses each part of the bees honey process to make good for you products and this 12oz tower of honey is no different.

The Savannah Bee Winter White Honey is made of 100% raw honey that has a delicious taste that is flavored by the blooming flora of the mountains of Montana and Idaho. The Winter White Honey is one of the rarest honeys in the world that is only harvested only a few days each year making this a special yearly holiday treat.

This is arguable one of the most decadent and most indulgent variation I have seen of honey and it was absolutely delicious.

The Savannah Bee Company has been in the honey and beekeeping business for over 35 years, and opened their storefront and online store in 2002 selling products made from the honey they collect.

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Race Point Publishing. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

I am doodler, I always have been. My drawing skills leave something to be desired but my handwriting has always been on point, so really developing doodles from there is a simple proposition.

When I received a copy of The Art of Doodle Words – Turn Your Everyday Doodles Into Cute Hand Lettering by Sarah Alberto for my holiday gift giving I saw a whole new way to add to my doodles.

The book starts with a simple word and the books shows you how to transform the word into doodles using simple lines and cute sketches. The book also shows you how to do the doodle in reverse, starting with a doodle and turning it into a cute illustration of letters and words.

The Art of Doodle Words also provides examples of the letters written in different styles such as cursive, block, and slanted to name a few. Each word is broken down into three steps that result in creative words that can be used in cards and letters.

If you have a doodle fan in your life, get them a copy of The Art of Doodle Words – Turn Your Everyday Doodles Into Cute Hand Lettering by Sarah Alberto this holiday season!
