Spring is here and Easter is just a few short weeks away. If you’re looking for a basket gift for the littles that isn’t candy I have got a great little book.
An Easter Prayer Touch-and-Feel book is written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Alison Edgson. Starting from the front cover there are 7 different textured pictures you can feel throughout the book including a bunny’s furry belly, a rain puddle or even the petal of a beautiful flower. It follows a cute little bunny and chick around as they give special thanks to God for all the wonderful things He has given us; like the rain for puddles, new life for family and friends and ending with being thankful that God sent His son Jesus who lives again.The book is so wonderfully illustrated with bright, colorful, spring pictures of fun little animals. The sentences are short and sweet and perfect for early readers and younger.
Touch and feel books were some of my absolute favorite books to read when I was a wee little one, and my kids loved them too!
You can purchase this on Amazon just in time to fill those baskets.
I received free copies of the books below in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are always my own.
If any of you have kids who love Veggie Tales you will be excited about these next 2 books I am going to share with you. Buck Denver’s Giant Robot Suit and Buck Denver’s Bad, Bad Day are written by Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer and are based on the video series Buck Denver Asks… What’s in the Bible? .
My daughter loves reading and I love books that I know have value, show character but are also fun to read and engaging. These books are books that I don’t have to worry what they are reading. You can never read enough about God or the Bible and these books are great and sharing our love of both.
What does it mean to be a good friend?
Buck Denver wants to be friends with God, so he makes a giant robot suit to be closer to Him. To help Buck understand the true meaning of friendship, his friends share their favorite Bible stories. First, Sunday School Lady tells him all about David and Jonathan and their loyalty to one another in tough times. Then Pastor Paul talks about how Jesus offers friendship to each of us. In the end, Buck learns that God uses friends to help us grow stronger and our friendship with Jesus helps us grow closer to God!
I love how this how this book focused on friendship. My daughter is 8 and very friendly. This book showed her how to be a great friend and how God uses friends to help us through life. Friends are an important part of our life and helps us be stronger.
In the back of the book is a section called “Family Connection”. It lists questions for you to ask your child and really get them thinking about the lessons in the book and Bible verses to read. This is such an awesome thing to include in the book.
What does it mean to be thankful?
Buck Denver has had a bad, bad day, so his friends take him on a quest to learn about thankfulness. Soon, he’s on a ride with Sunday School Lady, Marcy, and Brother Louie to learn about Jehoshaphat and Lazarus. In the end, Buck learns that on good days AND bad days, God is good and worthy of our thanks-every day, no matter what!
Thankful…that is a word that I actively try to teach my children all the time. Be thankful for the big, the small, the things you see and even the things you don’t see. This book is a fun, gentle approach that helps children remember just how great God is and to thankful all the time. This book to has the “Family Connection” section in the back.
Easter is coming up these would make perfect basket stuffers. They are fun to read but also remind the children of some important life lessons. Friendship and thankfulness are 2 very important life lessons that many people lack today in this sometimes harsh world. Let’s remind our littles how great God is and how he provides for us every…single…day!

Is it time for a change? With the new year I always feel it’s time to get rid of the old and in with the new. Whether it’s a new year or you just need a change of scenery in your home, I have some great tips to change up your living room decor.
A New Year A New Living Room Décor
An enthralling New Year has just blossomed with petals of new dreams and aspirations! Having a comfortable home is one’s most beautiful dream. Whether it is a small cottage or a big mansion, home is a person’s most prized possession. It is the reflection of one’s personality. Reflect your vibrant soul with decorative wall panels and exuberant marble floors. Make your living room an epitome of comfort, peace, and satisfaction where families bond, children nurture and elders feel loved. Let your walls speak the language of your heart with lively 3D wall panels that broadcast your class. Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist, you can customize your theme selection accordingly to pave way for a fresh new start.
The bamboo effect
Light yet sturdy, minimal and also cheap, yes it’s the bamboo that makes any decoration unique! Try using bamboo to give an ecstatic vision of simplicity and grace. Using bamboo wall panels for your living rooms could be an excellent option for bringing life to any size of the room. With minimal maintenance, bamboo can make any place look stylish. It can be used as a screen or as a natural curtain or it can be used as a dividing wall for different zones in a huge room. Oversized hanging bamboo lampshades make a bold impact in a room or balcony. Bamboo blinds and decorative baskets give a rustic and relaxed effect to any area in the living room. Pairing up with wood or stone, bamboo can add a soothing echo to any room.
Adding Life to walls
Walls could be of bricks or of stones, it’s is their color and texture that makes the house a home. Experimenting with paints on different sized walls could be an easy option, but this is not all. Life is 3 dimensional so why not our walls? Here comes the 3D wall panel to the rescue. If it sounds difficult, there are certain other easy options for quick modifications. Adding a simple green tall plant to a corner of a wall or next to a piece of furniture makes a serene and lasting impact. Changing the texture by using thematic textured wall panels can help to personalize your walls. If you want to make a signature effect, a single large antique mirror can be hanged over a fireplace. Mirrors open up spaces to provide a relaxing effect. Make way for some textile wall art, which can beautifully cover a large wall. If you have geeky genes then you may make way for optical illusion using funkily patterned wall tiles which make smaller rooms look big. You may also go for some artsy bookshelves to make a mini library.
Highlight your space by decorating the most important aspect which occupies the largest space in your house. Yes, it is the floor. The color, the texture, the type of material used, all decide the tempo of the room. The color and the material used speak for itself but the other decorative items can spice things up. The use of light colored flooring can create a cooling effect and also make smaller rooms look large. Decorative area rugs of contrasting colors from the floor can be treated like a piece of art to decorate the large frame of your floors. Adding to that, illuminating floor lamps at the corners of the wall adds reflective light from walls to creating a magical lasting impact. Add some floral plants to the corners of the rooms. They not only decorate the floor space but also clean the air. Floor poufs and other decorative seating items can add coziness to the home. Using large pillows around small tables are a good option for small gatherings in the room. Wooden flooring can also be a great option to bring warmth and coziness in the room.
Good lightening is the key to promised beautiful architecture. It needs to be creatively focused over the items one needs to highlight. Chandeliers provide elegant vintage lights. They can either be hanged alone or in pairs. Dramatic effects can be added by repeating ceiling fixtures in long hallways every few feet. Eco-friendly LED Lights can be used to illuminate architectural details with different colors. Pendant lights can be hanged over center tables to make a great statement. Floor lamps have the power to enlighten dark rooms. Small disk lights can also be used in cabinets to create a dazzling showroom effect. The right amount of lightning at the right place can leave an extremely great effect on the architecture.
Beautiful rooms are created not just by making big changes, but also by adding small details. Accessorize your home with decorative storage items, hanging pieces of artwork, pictures, floating shelves, artistic curtains, and bookshelves. Replacing old furniture with a new one that matches your style is of utmost importance. Spray paint can be used to renew old storage boxes. Hanging artwork, pictures and posters personalize your space. Floating shelves can also be used to create some extra space. Curtains, on the other hand, are the most underused decorating tools. Different colored curtains can be combined with contrasting walls to create a textured look. Layering with different patterns can also be done to increase visual interests in a room. Another way could be the display of highly curated collectibles on a small table or shelf. Antiques can also be grouped by different colors.
This New Year, renew your living room beautifully to instill positive vibes that soothe your soul the whole year round. Paying attention to the little details can help in providing good design to your living room. Choose from a variety of designs depending on your budget. Something low in cost can also be made splendid if used in an unusual way. Adopting strategies that best suit your space and using appropriate colors can magically transform any simple looking house into a cozy home. Make an innovative start but beware, the comfort you receive might make you homesick!
Although it’s not summer just yet it sure feels like it here in Florida. That means pool and cool drinks are in my future. And I have the perfect summer drink recipe that you can make at home with just a few ingredients. This adult beverage is fresh, delish and low in sugar too! Make it for yourself or friends as you’re hanging out in the pool, picnicking in the backyard or as a weekend treat.
As a member of Old Orchard VIP Juice Crew I get a box of goodies every month to try and share. This month I got in my box I got a bottle of Old Orchard Healthy Balance Mango Tangerine Juice. Now what makes me so excited about this juice it it’s low in sugar. Since last summer I have been actively reducing the amount of sugar I have been intaking, successfully I might add. Low sugar & fresh fruit, so I guess you could say this is kinda healthy right?! Even if you don’t make the recipe it’s still a great juice to drink alone.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and takes little time. If you make it be sure to come back and let me know what you think of it.
Winters are usually bad for my skin and scalp but this year it has been extra brutal on my scalp. There was absolutely nothing I tried that would even remotely get rid of the dry scalp. It would make just make it worse. I needed something that not only worked but something that was affordable too (I am not down for spending an atrocious amount of money on salon shampoos). I also get keratin treatments about every 5 months so I need something that isn’t full of harsh ingredients and as recommended by my stylist is sulfate and paraben free (apparently this helps the treatment last longer).
Then it happened! I was asked to try out the new Silk18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. Little did I know that this would be a serious game changer and my hair and scalp were going to thank me for that. So I might sound a little over dramatic but you should have seen how dry my scalp was before, so embarrassing! But before I tell you how using Silk18 saved my dry scalp I will share some of the benefits with you.
Benefits of using Silk18

I recently applied and was accepted as a member of the Old Orchard VIP Juice Crew. What is that you ask? Every month I will receive a unique tasting box filled with product samples, coupons, swag and more. All I have to do is share it with you!
My 1st tasting box has arrived for February. Inside was a bottle of Old Orchard Cranberry Raspberry Juice, Watermelon Lip Balm (which was quickly claimed by my daughter) along with a curly heart straw (also claimed) Old Orchard shirt and recipe for Cranberry-Raspberry Sparkle drink.
Valentine’s Day was approaching and the perfect time to try the Cranberry-Raspberry Sparkle recipe included. Now this recipe takes just a few simple ingredients you can find at your local grocery store,and after a few minutes you will be relaxing with an ice cold refreshing drink. It’s so easy the kids were able to make it all by themselves, they love helping in the kitchen when they can.
(This is not my original recipe but was provided by Old Orchard)
The recipe is so good and went well with our Valentines Day dinner. This is just 1 of the many uses for the juice to. During summer we will use it to flavor our shaved ice. So good!
