Brush Pen Lettering Review

Brush Pen Lettering: A Step-by-Step Workbook for Learning Decorative Scripts and Creating Inspired Styles Review + Giveaway

As much as I love review blogging there is another thing I love to do – write and send 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: A Step-by-Step Workbook for Learning Decorative Scripts and Creating Inspired Styles by Grace Song for review I was excited to perfect my abilities for future cards.

Silipint: Silicone Drinkware Review

Safe Drinking with Silipint Silicone Drinkware Review & Giveaway

There is a problem I suffer from – slippery fingers. Some days I drop every single thing I try to pick up. Yesterday was a day like this from beginning to end. It started with vacuuming the house, and while accessing the vacuum I knocked over numerous items including glass. After the vacuum I decided to refill the cat food, and before i knew it I had cat food all over my house. The grand finale was a large cup of ice water.

As my glass was collapsing and starting to shatter I wondered why I was dealing with broken glass when I had a solution. I was recently sent a set of Silipint Silicone Drinkware and it immediately replaced the 100 pieces of glass I had sitting in front of me.

Late for the Sky: Sharkopoly Game Review

Late for the Sky: Sharkopoly Property Trading Game Review + Giveaway

Each July the people who are above water get to learn about what is underwater. Each year in the summer we are treated to an entire week about sharks.

Sharks are as amazing as they are mysterious and may have ancestors that were alive when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Sharks are made of cartridge, which makes them more able to swim and maneuver around.

Being that I live on the coast, sharks are a daily topic either in my neighborhood, or the nightly news. When I discovered that Late for the Sky would be making a Sharkopoply themed property trading game, I was excited. Also, on July 23rd Shark Week begins!!

Cremo Company: Father’s Day Facial Care Giveaway

Cremo Company: Fathers Day Facial Care Giveaway

Being raised by a single father gave me an increased appreciation for Dad’s and Father’s Day! Each year I would agonize over the perfect gift, when really all my father wanted was a day of peace and ease.

In honor of Father’s Day, Cremo Company has generously offered to give one lucky winner a Facial Care Trio.

Nicks Sticks: Father’s Day 2017 Giveaway

Nick’s Stick’s: Stick’s for Dad Giveaway

One of the most difficult things I had to decide each year was what to purchase my dad for Father’s Day. My father is the type of father that has everything he needs, and there are few things that can be bought for him. Through the years I would make him items such as pencil holders and various art pieces. One of his favorite gifts was an album I made that was dedicated to our family dog, and this album is still a favorite.

There is no doubt though as he has aged, it is harder to think of things for him. As I got older there was always one “go-to” that included meat and nut items. I learned that if all else failed i could get him meat sticks and pistachios.

Since this has been a life long challenge for me I thought it would be nice to help you with your Father’s Day gifting with a Nick’s Sticks Meat Stick Assortment for the man in your life!

Smith & Vandiver: Spa..ah Foot Care Collection Review

Smith & Vandiver: Spa..ah Foot Care Collection Review + Giveaway

Summer is approaching, and if the increase in traffic near my coastal home is any indication, it will be a busy summer this year. Each year I use the surrounding area traffic to find out how busy the beach season will be.

As some readers know, I live only about 1/4 mile from the beach, and I see people walking the streets in flip-flops and bare feet daily. The thing that always makes me think is the toll that their feet must suffer from. Then when you add in the beach sand, the water and the walk back, the feet get the abuse.

When you add in the additional wear and tear of the daily use of the feet, there is no doubt that some pampering is not only necessary but essential. When I saw that Smith & Vandiver had an entire foot care line from scrub, fizzies, lotion and heel repair I thought maybe I can repair my often abused feet.
