Brain Freeze Mini Journal

Looking for a Fun Summer Gift to give your kids or friends?  
Encourage summer writing in this yummy little journal!

5 Stars  - I really love it!

This Journal is as cool and refreshing as it looks.

I actually get brain freezes all the time, and had to try out this journal brain freeze.

It's cool mini size is a perfect  4 inches x 6 inches.  Plus a fat little 1 inch thick of paper.

What's your favorite icecream flavor?  I love how it's a Neapolitan ice cream flavor/look.
Inside the design is clever.  the top lines are chocolate color, the middle is a blank space of pure white, with the bottom third filled with lines that are pink in color.  Sometimes it's fun to draw a little and the white space in the middle encourages a little more fun than the average journal!

You will be drawn to this flat open set up.  No big bump in the middle!  Your writing is smooth and enjoyable.

I think this would be the funnest summer gift.  Whether you are going on a summer vacation and need a diary to take along, or have a summer birthday, this is a fantasticly cute gift that will be well used.
This journal was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars

This book was a delight to read. Isabel and her sister Lizzie have been handed a tuff lot in life.  Yet surprises keep popping up and disturbing their calm predictable lives.
This story had some great parts, great building of plot, characters, and the fun mystery of a dark woods with deep secrets.
I gave it only 3 stars for it took off a little slower than I would have preferred, and ended a tad to predictable for me.
I added the .5 because it had a love story that was sweet and satisfying.  Also the author did throw in a couple curve balls that made the book better than the normal predictable 3.

Overall - yes, read it, enjoy it, and share it with your friends:).
And I must add, great cover.  A lot of the regency covers are so cheezy I can't buy the book even if I do like it.  So well done!

I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Scripture Journal Layouts

I have found that Scripture Study is a lot more meaningful to me if I can doodle my thoughts onto the page.  My memory is increased, and the scriptures I doodle about stay with me more so than if I simply wrote a paragraph about what I thought.  
Thus I created this layout page to help you get a jump start and inspire you as you fall in love with my favorite hobby - Scripture Journaling!

Help Refugees



How You Can Help Refugees in Utah.  
Here are some great things I have discovered in the last couple of weeks and I thought I would share:

If you are like me - I would love to help, but don't have a lot of cash.  

So when I found the website Utahrefugees.com  I was so happy to learn there is a lot you can do.  

Here are some of the ideas they had:

  • Gather & Donate Household Items (some used & some new)
  • Organize a team of 9 people - everyone donate $10 - and purchase a lifesaving carseat for refugees!
  • Make a kit - bedding, school, underclothing etc.

See the website:
http://utahrefugee.org/serve.html   -  under "Make a Contribution"  then click on "service projects"

(I found these ideas and lots more on their website and app)


Don't Miss the App:

When Calls the Heart

Grab some popcorn it's Movie Time:)

4 Stars  - WHEN CALLS THE HEART

Have you seen this new series from BBC?  Well pull out the popcorn and sit back and enjoy.  This is a great new family friendly series that has all the adventure, romance and interest you could hope for.  


This particular episode is one of many.  When Calls the  Heart is a series.  Season 1 and 2 are finished and they are now entering the 3rd season.  My girls and I love to watch this.  I admit, a few parts are a little corny, but overall, it is impressive and we can't wait to watch the next episode.  Elizabeth tops the line of main characters as she and Jack start a friendship that keeps you wanting to watch more. 

The Dance episode tells the story of a group of minors coming into the valley to replace the men lost in the mine leaving a town full of mourning widows and children.  Jack and Elizabeth steal your heart as you watch this great series.  Don't miss this Christian DVD series.   I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

A great place to buy these DVDs is at Fishflix.com.  You can get a $5 coupon to fishflix.com if you join their e-mail list!  Join by visiting www.fishflix.com/5gift or texting 5-GIFT to 44222.

Now sit back and enjoy some great movies with your friends and family!

General Conference Stickers

Print these on AVERY 8293 labels 
for an easy way to label each talk in your conference journals.  
Also it's fun to watch and see who are the last apostles to speak.  Every Apostles speaks once except for the First Presidency.  


I got this fun idea from this blog  HERE,  she uses AVERY labels #5160 if you prefer that size:)  She has a fantastic blog - be sure to stay and look around when you get there!
