Summer Bored Post


This summer instead of supplying an endless list of ideas that immediately get shot down, 
I found this brilliant idea here.  
Why not let them figure out what to do?   

I made this free printable to post on the wall so all I have to do is point to this printable when someone says, I'm Bored.:)

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 stars

 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.
The 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 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)
