Pack A Shoebox

October 30, 2017 9 Comments
It's that time of year, again.  Time to pack a shoebox.  Do you pack shoeboxes?  Many of us do.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a little video to explain it to you....compliments of Bob and Larry!



Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 146 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories.  

You and your family are invited to pack a shoebox, too.  The website for Operation Christmas Child has many wonderful resources to make this easy.  They have downloadable labels and much more.

You can learn how to pack the box as well as get lots of ideas for the various age/gender levels.  This page also tells you of the nearest drop-off location near you.  There is also now an option to build an online box.  


Shoebox recipient


The online Build-A-Box is fun.  It allows you to virtually shop from certain groups: toys, essentials and more.  You can also just click, Build A Box For Me, and then go ahead and pay.  This way you don't even have to leave your home to shop or deliver the box.  The fee for online boxes is $25.  

Well, if you get to pack a shoebox this year, you have until the week of November 13-20.  That is the drop off week.  Moms will love the wonderful activities and ideas HERE to do with their children.  There are printable lessons, coloring sheets, Pack-A-Box Party ideas, and many other creative ideas and Bible lessons.  Have fun, and send me a picture of your Pack-A-Box adventures!

Date Night At Putt Putt

October 28, 2017 8 Comments
Disclosure: I received passes to Putt Putt in order to provide a review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Date Night At Putt Putt

It's Not Just For Kids!

Putt Putt Fun Center is an amazing place for kids to have fun!  But, it's not just for kids.  Adults love it, too.  In fact, hubby and I had a blast there for our date night.  On a fall evening, what more could you want?  

Putt Putt

As parents, we've spent many days at Putt-Putt Fun Center.  Our children have had so much fun there with their friends.  They've even celebrated quite a few birthdays there.  But, why leave all the pleasure for kids?  Adults like to have fun, too.

We arrived and decided to have fun with the outside activities, first.  We grabbed our golf clubs and ball and headed for one of the beautiful and challenging courses.  The courses are built around gorgeous, large rose bushes and waterfalls.  


See, Putt-Putt can even be a romantic place amongst the roses.  Hubby and I tried to be good sports as we fought hard to win the mini-golf game.  The courses were challenging but really nice!

Putt Putt Putter


Putt Putt Fun Center has many silly, as well as entertaining props around the courses.  I love these HUGE putters.  Aren't they cute?  We enjoyed trying to get a hole-in-one, but didn't do it this time.  Maybe, next time.


We decided to not try the Bumper Boats, because it was a chilly evening.  I'm sure these are a blast in the summer.  It would be a exhilarating place to play and even get a little wet!  It's a beautiful pool!


Next, we checked out the Race Zone!  The race cars are thrilling for kids and adults and really race around an exciting track.  You can hear the roar of the engines.  What an awesome experience!


Putt Putt also has some terrific Batting Cages.  Aspiring MLB players (or just recreational stars) can practice hitting here.  Hubby forgot his bat, but was daydreaming about a Home Run in there.


We skipped the Laser Tag, but boy did it look thrilling!  We went into the other game areas indoors to try out some new and old adventures.  I first found this fun game where you can ride on a "motorcycle"  It was delightful to play and move on the bike!

Motorcycle


Since Hubby is a retired concert pianist, he decided to try out the Piano Keys Game.  I thought he looked and sounded Mah-velous!  

Piano Key

We remember spending a lot of time in this room.  This is the place where they hold Birthday Celebrations!  You can schedule your own party, and they'll take real good care of you.  The Birthday Boy/Girl will feel super special!



Hubby competed against the clock with this classic basketball hoops game.  He was shooting so fast!

Basketball

As you can see, the fun never stops at Putt Putt Fun Center.  There are many great locations.  Find one close to you, and schedule your date night at Putt Putt Fun Center.  You'll be glad you did!

Glasstic: The Perfect Water Bottle

October 26, 2017 8 Comments
Disclosure: I received a Glasstic Bottle in order to review.  All opinions are 100% my own.  


Glasstic


What is Glasstic?  It's the perfect water bottle!  How could it be so perfect?  It's because of the huge list of features that everyone wants in their Water Bottles.

We all want to drink out of real glass vs plastic, but how can you take a glass bottle with you?  I have a glass bottle with the handy foam covering.  But, if you drop this and break the glass, it goes everywhere and can cause a cut.

The Glasstic Bottle has a BPA-free plastic outer layer.  If you were to break the glass, it will be contained inside the plastic outer layer.  This is so much safer for you and your children.  Because of the protection, you can take your bottle into places that don't allow glass containers.




I love the Flip-Top lid with the great handle.  The handle allows you to carry the bottle easily.  The large spout allows you to take a gulp instead of a sip.

The bottle has a wide mouth, so you can add something other than water to your bottle.  Would you like to add fruit slices to create a fruit-infused water?  So many of us love to add lemon, lime, or other fruits to give water a great flavor.  You can also add essential oils or teabags.  Make your water great!

The unique patented design is the best I've seen.  The Glasstic company  has a great warranty and believes in their product.  That's why they offer free replacement parts.

Homeschool Insights Bottle


I love the beauty of the bottles, too.  They come in six standard colors: blue, pink, white, black, green, and purple.  But, that's just the beginning.  These bottles can be customized in multiple ways.

It's really easy to add text and images to customize your new bottle.  I did this very quickly and easily online.  They also offer simple-to-follow instructions.  There is a huge collection of fonts to choose from.  You can adjust the size and colors of the text.  There are even fun text patterns!  I love the snow pattern, that would help you to design a bottle perfect for Christmas presents!

You can also add a logo or image.  They allow you to upload these right onto your bottle.  You can also adjust the sizes, colors, and everything!  These are great for businesses, schools, churches, and individuals!  Your imagination can truly run wild in designing your bottle.

I selected a white bottle and added "Homeschool Insights" in text as well as a matching logo.  I'll enjoy carrying this everywhere.  It's perfect for promoting by blog at Homeschool Conventions, meetings, or just running errands.  People will definitely want to know where this super bottle came from.

To continue with customization of your new Glasstic water bottle, they offer a huge selection of pre-made designs.  They come in a variety of patterns and you'll love these!

Inserts


I think my favorite feature is the cute Style Inserts addition.  These style inserts can slip between the glass and plastic to add even more design to your bottle.  They offer a variety of packages to choose from, depending on your style preferences.  They even have sheets that you can color!  You'll love these, which are perfect for children and adults.  There's something for everyone!

Accessories are available, too.  There are shoulder straps that come in green or black.  There's a handy tea filter that fits perfectly.  You can even purchase Essential oils!

If you purchase from Glasstic in October, you can save 30% by using the code: October30.  They also offer free shipping with orders of $25.  What great deals!

TechKnow Training Studios for Homeschool Excellence

October 25, 2017 1 Comments
How do you teach computer technology in your homeschool?  Technology skills are necessary for kids (and adults).  There are many courses out there, but how about finding one that has super ratings?

TechKnow Training Studios


TechKnow Training Studios was voted Top 100 Educational Site by Homeschool.com.  TechKnow Training  has also been reviewed by Cathy Duffy, and TheHomeschoolTechie.com.  They sell courses to individual homeschool families as well as Co-Ops, Homeschool Groups, and private schools.

They include two great Freebies with a subscription: A free parent account and EduTyping Keyboard courses.  The Parent Perks are really great.  Parents can learn with their free account, too.  In the parent perks, parents can:

  • Monitor how much time students spend on the course, as well as their progress
  • Run student progress reports
  • Take any courses their students are taking
  • Gain access to reporting tools that keep track of transcripts and more
  • Have direct access to TechKnow Techs to get help with resources
Computer

They offer a huge list of courses, with everything from Microsoft Word to Building your own Computer.  Check the courses HERE.  

TechKnow Training has High School Credit information for your students who are taking technology courses for high-school credit.  The Course Syllabi are also ready for you to click and print, if you like.

My favorite thing about the program is the Student Achievement System, where students can be rewarded for learning new skills and completing courses.  Badges can be earned and points calculated. This helps students to keep track of their learning and share the success of their accomplishments.

And, every 9 weeks TechKnow Training rewards one student with a special prize. Prizes could be:
Robot Kits, Drones, iPad, computer software and more!  Doesn't that sound wonderful?  

Baby Computer


There is also a Fun Zone on their website for games.  They've created a separate server for Minecraft games.  The only access is for registered students, so it's a safe place to play.

I hope you'll check out TechKnow Training Studios.  They have a 30-day Free Trial. I was privileged to meet their representatives at the HEAV Convention in Richmond this summer.

Does your dog's bed look worn out?  Archie really "loved" his bed when he was a younger pup.  He loved it to death.  He's also outgrown his soft little bed.  I think Christmas might be the perfect time to give him a new bed!

Stocking


I'm thrilled to find the choices at FurHaven Pet Products.  The prices look reasonable and I love that they offer so many things for pet owners.  The choices in beds is huge: Sofa beds, waterproof beds, Orthopedic beds, Memory Top beds, beds that fit in crates.....What to choose?

The Memory Top Comfy Couch with Faux Fur looks perfect for Archie!  He loves soft things and he can cuddle up to the "arm rests" surrounding the couch.  Wow!  Which bed would suit your dog?

Comfy Couch
All photos from FurHaven


Does your dog or cat like to snuggle under the covers?  They would love the Snuggery Burrow Bed!  It has removable/washable covers and comes in different colors.  It also comes in sizes for large or small pets.

Some pets like to snuggle with blankets and would like the hood effect.

Snuggery Bed


Others would prefer the hood up.  The beds come with a plastic hoop to add, if your pet likes the hood up. FurHaven has really thought of everything.

Brown Sunggery Bed

Now, if you have a cat and would like to keep them busy, you might select a cat house.  FurHaven has so many cat houses to select.  They have cat hammocks, cat playgrounds, scratchers, and window-perches.  Check out the Deluxe Playground for Cats with IQ Busy Box!

Cat Playground



Here's the Hammock

Another product that would be helpful for traveling or any time, is the Water Bottle with Dish.  I would love to have this in the car when Archie gets thirsty.  No more spills with this Water bottle.  It comes in four great colors, too.

Stress Less Bath & Body Collection from AromaFloria

October 23, 2017 6 Comments
Disclosure: I received the collection in order to facilitate a review. All opinions are 100% my own. Affiliate link included.

Stress!  Do you have stress in your life?  We all do, and all want to Stress Less.  Because I want to have less stress, I'm more than excited to try this beautiful collection from Aromafloria.

Stress Less


Aromafloria offers wonderful and natural products that are made with Essential Oils.  In the past, I was so excited to try the Muscle Soak Collection.  Today, I'm happy to share with you the Stress Less Collection.  Essential oils included in this collection are lavender, sage, and chamomile.

Lavender - Soothes and relaxes
Chamomile - Calms and rejuvenates
Sage - Relieves mental fatigue

Essential oils in this collection are blended to help you relax.  The beautiful color of Lavender makes the experience with Stress Less even better.

The Stress Less Inhalation Beads help you to experience tranquility, while still keeping a focused and sharp mind.  The beads are a beautiful lavender color.  To use them, just place them in the Inhalation Bag.  You'll be able to inhale the wonderful scent and feel relaxed any time of day.  This little bag just may become my new best friend!

Inhaler Beads


Stress Less Moisturizing Body Wash also includes the three essential oils of Lavender, Chamomile, and Sage.  This body wash works naturally to cleanse and reduce stress and tension.  When you open the tube, you're met with a beautiful fragrance.  It works well with a sponge and only takes a small squeeze to bring the relaxation-inducing scent to life.

The Body Wash is pH balanced, Paraben-free, Amide-free, SLES & SLS free.  All of the products are Vegan, safe for the earth, biodegradable, sulfate and phthalate free. They don't test on animals, either.

Body Wash


Could you benefit from an Aroma Therapeutic Massage?  Yes, we all could.  The Stress Less Bath & Body Massage Oil nourishes your skin and absorbs quickly.  The oil penetrates deeply to relax and rejuvenate your mind, as you get a massage.  The Lavender, Chamomile, and Sage essential oils also smell amazing!  I love how it helps my dry skin.

Massage Oil


I love the Stress Less Foaming Salt Glow Polish.  You can exfoliate those dead skin cells by rubbing this luxurious polish in a circular motion.  As you scrub away stress, you'll notice that your skin feels smoother.  How do they do that?  They combine Ocean Minerals and Pure Magnesium Sulfate.  Magnesium Sulfate is a natural mineral that helps to exfoliate and bring out smoother skin.

It's good to use the Foaming Salt Glow Polish before you use self-tanning products or shaving, because it helps to prevent ingrown hairs and allows moisturizers to penetrate your skin.  As you use this blend of Lavender, Chamomile, and Sage, you'll experience a relaxing feeling.

Glow Polish


The Stress Less Ocean Mineral Bath Salts is perfect when you want to immerse yourself in a Lavender bath that can help you to remove the stresses of the day.  The three essential oils will help to rehydrate your skin while you soak in the tub.

Natural Mineral Salts help to restore the mineral balance in your skin.  Natural salt actually contains many minerals.  These minerals help the nervous system, relieves stress, and can help to lesson water retention.  These salts are meant to draw out impurities, sweat, dirt, and oil. It can also improve circulation.

Bath Salts


Another way to enjoy the tension-reducing benefits of Lavender, Chamomile, and Sage essential oils is to take a bubble bath with Stress Less Foaming Bubble Bath.  The mild plant-based ingredients are not-drying to your skin.  Inhaling the scent could help you to relieve stress and anxiety.  It enables your skin to be cleansed and conditioned, too.

Bubble bath


Just as I loved the Aromafloria Muscle Soak Collection, I really love the Stress Less Collection.  The beautiful and natural products really work well and are packaged in lovely containers.  I enjoy using every drop of the items and think you will, as well.
