One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.
 Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'. 
Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run away, but instead pushing through and reaching a deeper more meaningful relationship.
This book is as deep as you’ll make it. It is an easy read. But if you follow the format and read 1 chapter each day, and go through the exercises, it is a very effective book.  
You can find it here or for your kindle here
Thank you to WaterBrook Press for providing this book for review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

BuildASign Review

For a few months I have been playing around with the idea of re-opening my etsy shop. But in doing so I would really want to make a go of it. This meaning, I need inventory, facebook page, business cards, etc. It just seemed like to daunting of a task.
I have been working on my inventory for about a month. I still don't have all of the items made that I would like, but I am working on it. Facebook page is up, needs some updating and to be made puuurty but it is created.
So on to business cards. I had been contacted by BuildASign to review a product of my choice. I jumped at the chance to order some business cards from this very reputable company. I not only wanted a good quality of paper for my business cards, but a customization template that was easy to use. They have it all! With their Business Card Maker I was able to create exactly what I was looking for and with very little effort of time.
They don't just have business cards. They have a banner maker, which would be super fun to use for a family reunion, or even a wedding!
I also love their sign maker. This doesn't have to be business related either. Can you imagine creating a banner and a sign or your garage sale? Then you would be able to keep it for years to come! No more horrible neon posters! I love it!
Check out my awesome cards that I received-I am absolutely in love with these. The paper quality is amazing. Beautiful cards. Did I mention how great this companies customer service is? Simply amazing!!

Homemade Non Stick Spray

Fill your misto pump up to the fill line. I used to use the veggie oil and lecithin, as pictured above.

 However now that I am more health conscious.. I use a high quality olive oil and that is it.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?
