Commemorating a graduation

My entire life, I've loved doing arts and crafts projects, especially collages. As a child, and even into my early college years, I always gifted my closest friends collages of our times together. I mean, what better way to cherish the moments than have them frozen in time in a personal collage? So naturally, when my eldest started his senior year of high school, I knew a collage would be happening in the near future.

Even though I had the entire year to make the collage, I figured I'd better start sorting through our online albums (just to select the ones I wanted to print). I even mentioned it to a girlfriend, who also shared my love for all things arts and crafts. And that's when she told me about PosterMyWall!

She told me the site offered amazing templates, including a category for family collages!!! Suddenly, my project turned from a year's worth of prep into about a day's worth of prep. Because I still had to sort through my online albums, it took me a bit to decide which images to select. But actually uploading the images and customizing my design only took a few minutes!!! With the site's online tools (we're talking backgrounds, images, filters, etc.), I designed and purchased a 24x36" poster collage without hours of meticulous cutting and pasting.

The collage arrived fairly quickly, and everyone loved it. My son even teared when he opened up the package! Now we use PosterMyWall for all photo gifts. If you wanna see what other products PosterMyWall offers, check out this page.

Gnoments tis the season to bring the magic back into relationships Review

Gnoments is a unique relationship-building tool to help you share and create special moments with the one you love.

 The Gnoments kit includes a boy and girl gnome, each with a special pouch for including notes, mementos, and gifts, along with an embedded NFC chip for high tech messages, and a 32 page hardcover, illustrated story book with ideas to get you started so you can begin making special moments today.

 If you are away from your gnome, but still want to send a special message, Gnoments' mobile-friendly website includes a special messaging system called Gnomifications, where one can create a Gnomitar (a gnome avatar) and send an email or text with the same links one can share through the embedded NFC tags.

Falling Free Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted By Shannan Martin Review


“Shannan’s story feels at once familiar and spectacular, ordinary and exceptional. You will discover that at the same time her words make you squirm, you will wish you lived next door to her. You will want her wisdom and you will want her pickles.” —Jen Hatmaker (from the foreword)

Shannan Martin had the perfect life: a cute farmhouse on six rambling acres, a loving husband, three adorable kids, money, friends, a close-knit church—a safe, happy existence.

But when the bottom dropped out through a series of shocking changes and ordinary inconveniences, the Martins followed God’s call to something radically different: a small house on the other side of the urban tracks, a shoestring income, a challenged public school, and the harshness of a county jail (where her husband is now chaplain). And yet the family’s plunge from “safety” was the best thing that could have happened to them.

Falling Free charts their pilgrimage from the self-focused wisdom of the world to the topsy-turvy life of God’s more being found in less. Martin’s practical, sweetly subversive book invites us to rethink assumptions about faith and the good life, push past insecurity and fear, and look beyond comfortable, middle-class Christianity toward a deeper, richer, and ultimately more fulfilling life.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The story challenges the reader with a scenarios or two that could become a reality for some people.  It has real tones and was a smooth read with not too many bumps along the way.   I think there was enough going on to keep the drama level high and the reader wanting to finish.

Bedtime Read and Rhyme Bible Stories By Bonnie Rickner Jensen Review


Our God cares for us so much—His love is everywhere! If He sees one heart in need, His love will be right there.

When Jesus finds a lamb who’s lost,
He sings a happy song!
“My lamb is safe now in My arms,
Where all My sheep belong!”  

Bedtime Read and Rhyme Bible Stories offers more than 90 stories from the Old and New Testaments told in delightful, rhyming verse, along with Bedtime Prayers that help young readers grasp and apply each message.

Tuck in your child with rhyming reminders of God’s great love!

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- A thick children's book that shares the the greatest stories in the world with your little one, of course when you read them outloud the fun really shares between all of you.  The illustrations are cute and eye catching.

6th Grade Revengers: Cat Crimes and Wannabes by Steven Whibley $50 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway

    cat-crimes   6th Grade Revengers: Cat Crimes and Wannabes by Steven Whibley Jared and Marcus aren’t like other 11-year-olds…they’re also Revengers. They fix problems and they’re awesome at it-at least, they will be if they ever get a chance to show off their skills. What they need is exposure. Luckily, they have the perfect target in mind: Jared’s sister’s boyfriend. He’s a jerky, wannabe rock star, a relentless bully and he smells like old gym socks. Enough is enough. The tone deaf jerk’s days are numbered. There’s only one hitch: Marcus already offered their services elsewhere. A stray cat with serious aggression issues apparently has a whole neighborhood boarding up their windows. What the boys think will be an easy-money job quickly turns into a dangerous game of wits. The cat’s a monster. It takes all the ingenuity the boys can muster to deal with this beast. Two targets at once. It’s time to prove themselves as the awesome after-school problem-solvers they know they are. That is, if their plan doesn’t backfire. Because they’ll either be feared fixers or a couple kids who can’t even take out a kitten. amazon
add to goodreads Praise for the Book “…funny, exciting and full of adventure.” 10-year-old reviewer “…a delightful story, full of adventure and I would highly recommend it…” Amazon reviewer “Cleverly entwined plots and vivid settings are designed to hold readers to the end…” Goodreads Reviewer  
One of my favorite TV shows was about a spy who couldn’t be a real spy anymore so he went around helping people with their problems. In a way, that was exactly what I’d done for Sky. She had a problem, and I fixed it. I wasn’t sure what that would be called, but there had to be thousands of people with problems—problems like evil bosses, jerk teachers or pain-inthe-butt sisters—who needed someone to help them deal. Someone like me. I grabbed a notebook and pencil and started brainstorming all the ways I’d make it work. Eventually my brainstorm became a brain typhoon, or whatever it is when your imagination gets out of control. Brain tornado maybe. The ideas came faster than I could write them down. There was no limit to what I could do. Bullies would disappear from playgrounds. Mean babysitters would never sit again. The possibilities seemed endless. Pretty soon it was after midnight and I had a notebook filled with ideas. “Jared Moter: Avenger of the Little Guy,” I said to myself as I crawled into bed. No, avenger wouldn’t work. That was already a comic book and a movie. Revenge-inator? That sounded like a robot from a sci-fi movie. It had to be cool. Had to be catchy. “Problem Assassin?” I shook my head. I wasn’t really killing stuff and besides, assassins were cool in movies and video games but not in real life. I lay there staring up at the ceiling for a long time. Just before I fell asleep, I found the right word. Revenger.
er’ll have to wait. Let’s go check out this killer cat.” We grabbed our bikes and headed for Oak Street.

Simply Heaven Candle Giveaway


The Essential Guide to Deliverance By Larry Richards Review

The Essential Guide to Deliverance: Finding True Freedom in Christ
Practical, Everyday Introduction to Deliverance for All Christians

For most Christians, the word deliverance often brings negative connotations to mind: lots of yelling and holy water and darkness—maybe even something from a Hollywood horror movie exorcism. But deliverance is not about shouting or showmanship. It is about the simple act of asking Jesus for help, for freedom, and using his authority over the enemy.

In this accessible and practical guide, evangelical leader and bestselling author Larry Richards walks you through the who, what, when, where, why, and how of deliverance. In everyday language, he shows how you can apply this information to your life and the lives of your friends and family.

As children of God, we have been given access to Jesus' death-defying power to help free ourselves and others from evil. You don't have to continue to struggle with persistent problems or strongholds. Your loved ones can be freed from the lies or addictions that hold them back. There is hope in Christ—you can live in freedom!

Includes an extensive glossary of terms and appendixes with prayers and even more practical resources.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-    This is for a Christian or someone who is finding freedom in Christ.  It is strong to this subject and enlightens the reader with the author's  view of demons actually existing.   It may scare little children and some adults.  It is really open to discussion and full of topics.

Price: 14.99
ISBN: 978-1-4964-1429-8
Trim Size: 5.5 x 8.25
Binding: Hardcover

November 2016

This isn’t about me. This story, I mean. So already you got a reason to hang it up. At least that’s what Mrs. Smith, our English teacher, says.

But the story is about ten-year-old Laney Grafton and the new girl in her class—Lara Phelps, whom everyone bullies from the minute she shows up. Laney is just relieved to have someone else as a target of bullying. But instead of acting the way a bullied kid normally acts, this new girl returns kindness for a meanness that intensifies . . . until nobody remains unchanged, not even the reader.

In a unique and multi-layered story, with equal parts humor and angst, Laney communicates the art of storytelling as it happens, with chapter headings, such as: Character, Setting, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax. And she weaves an unforgettable tale of a new girl who transforms an entire class and, in the process, reveals the best and worst in all of us.

This is a powerful and emotional story, which School Library Journal called “Thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly wry, . . . as intelligent as it is succinct.”

Cassandra's Review Q&A-

- What did you like about the book and why?  The author presents a very real problem in the world today and created a very upbeat person to take it on.

- What did you not like about the book and why? I feel like the little girl should have spoken up first and got help because even with the smiling and positivity it still should not have been allowed to continue.

- What did you learn? Everyone has a different view of this subject.

- To whom would you recommend this book and why?  I would say for older youth who are having a hard time coping with this type of problem, but I would also point out that getting help is the first step to any progress.
