As far as secrets go, the fact that I am fan of Goodie Girl Cookies is the worst kept secret ever. Goodie Girl was one of the first companies I found when I began blogging and it is consistently one of my favorite companies to work with and partner with.

Be Silly This Holiday with Silipint for the Holidays – Silicone Drinkware Giveaway
I have a confession – I have a serious case of slippery fingers and if I am given the opportunity to drop a glass I will take it. Set aside the cleanup issues, this is just unsafe for humans and felines that reside in my house.
As the holidays approach and we have visitors, I will be using my silicone drinkware, and I am thrilled to give you the opportunity to add some Silipint Silicone Drinkware to your cup collection.
Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Caligraphy Drills, Measured Guidlines and Practice Shees to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words Review + Giveaway
As much as I love blogging there is another thing I love to do – write and send cards to loved ones, especially during the holidays when I am sending cards to loved ones.
I believe that the art of handwriting is slowly being eliminated from the skills people hold. Instead of being able to do clean brush lettering, people strive to have the most words typed from their smart phones.
Each year I write cards and notes, and each year I strive to make my handwriting better. I am always looking for books and step-by-step instructions to extend those skills. When I recently I received a copy of Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Calligraphy Drills, Measured Guidelines, and Practice Sheets to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words by Grace Song for review I was excited to perfect my abilities for future cards with worksheets.
Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Scratch & Create – Scratch and Draw Patterns
The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of The Quatro Group. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are mine.
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.
As we begin the march into December, the time has come in which I begin to prepare my gift list.
As I prepare there are certain people that are easy to buy for – hobbies clear, favorite author and always brand loyal. These are the people I love to shop for. but there are others on my list. These “other” people to shop for are the people that literally have everything already, and if they want an item they purchase it themselves.
If you happen to have someone like this on your list then I have the perfect gift – sticks! One lucky winner will also be able to share some meat sticks in their holiday stockings when they win a 12 pack of Nick’s Sticks!
