Holiday Gifts with a Social Twist .@TGPdenver .@Art_Restart



Scarves are $55 apiece (includes shipping; no sales tax for out of state)

Looking for a great stocking stuffer? Holiday gift for someone special? Or a hostess gift for the swirl of holiday parties? Art Restart, the social enterprise arm of The Gathering Place, is transforming the lives of women experiencing poverty and homelessness through art. The designs these women create are now available on beautiful products including holiday greeting cards, year-round cards, thank-you notes, desk calendars, and fashion scarves (size is 3' x 5'). For more information or to order, go to Art Restart or contact Teresa@tgpdenver.org

Art Restart was conceived to develop new revenue streams to support the vitally needed services The Gathering Place provides and is built on four principles. 1) Radical Acceptance: our artists are individuals deserving of dignity, recognized for their strengths, valued for their unique characteristics and respected for their creativity; 2) Transformation: we provide women a means to achieve self-sufficiency, earn money, rediscover their independence and believe that they can transform their lives; 3) Affirmation: our women are truly artists. Through artistic self-expression they are validated when their work sells, creating a ripple effect of confidence that positively affects their lives. 4) Sustainability: provide additional funding to The Gathering Place, ensuring it can continue to serve members in meaningful ways.



The Gathering Place (TGP) created Art Restart as a social enterprise to provide its members with opportunities to earn money and to build earned revenues.  For 30 years, TGP has offered essential resources and personal growth programs to women, children, and transgender individuals during the day.

I will also be featuring an update of a review when my cards arrive.

Cassandra's Review- At first I thought that these were not going to be the right style for my child because of the special needs there is a trick of pushing the post earrings into the earlobe and so I always try to find horseshoe instead of the labret.  I was thrilled that this store carries the acrylic because of my childs allergies to metal these are hard for me to find at a good price.  

I am super pleased with the post style and size as it was perfect and because it does not irritate the earlobe or seem noticeable my child does not bother with it.  I am one happy mom!

AiroSpa Pillow Review


The new AiroSpa™ Pillow is a unique, simple to use, affordable, multi-purpose stress reliever and aromatherapy pillow that can be used at home and travel anywhere. With its built-in and patented fan, air-flow vents and face-down angled construction, the AiroSpa™ Pillow can be used as a home/office/travel massage experience enhancer with a partner or all on its own for a calming and relaxing experience.

The AiroSpa™ Pillow and its patented fan disperses a relaxing aroma from each of the inclusive pure-essential oils that produces;
 
Stress Relief
A Calming Effect
Reduction of Neck and Shoulder Pain
Positioning for Improved Posture
A Reduction or Resolution to Snoring
A fantastic massage experience
Enhanced Breathing
Better positioning for those who prefer sleeping or napping face-down
More complete rest
A healthful and relaxing aromatherapy session
The AiroSpa™ Pillow comes complete with a simple to inflate, padded, face-down pillow, a patented insertable fan to provide airflow and to disperse the pure-essential oils that all comes neatly packaged.  

The entire set retails for $29.95 plus shipping and handling and includes three pure essential oils (Lavender, Chamomile, Geranium). For a limited time, the AiroSpa™ Pillow will come with three additional pure essential oils (Jasmine, Rose, Ylang-Ylang), normally a $30 value, at no extra charge.

 This new product is a true stress reliever, massage experience enhancer and can be used anywhere and anytime.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  Affordable and fairly simple to use.  I did not think it was safe to have a battery operated fan in the pillow while you sleep, like overnight or unattended, but that is just my opinion.  You do get a strong burst of fragrance and you can use this without the fan and essential oils if wanted.  You use your own breath to inflate this but it is has simple as blowing up a beach ball.  I had no idea what to expect with this concept, but I think most people would enjoy it.

Zoono Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer Review


Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer is an FDA-compliant formulation of this technology. It is a revolutionary, long-lasting, highly effective, water-based hand sanitizer that kills 99.99% of germs on contact and keeps killing them for up to 24 hours. Zoono Germ Free 24 kills germs immediately like other hand sanitizers.

But unlike traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers, which only work while they are wet and quickly evaporate, as GermFree24 dries the intelligent Zoono molecules bond permanently to your skin, setting up a defensive barrier composed of billions of molecular "pins" that destroy germ cells for up to 24 hours. 

This means GermFree24 provides continuous antimicrobial protection all day with a single application. When you compare a product that works for a few minutes to one that lasts all day and factor in the convenience, continuity of protection and cost, there is no comparison.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  Although my bottles were leaky when they arrived and the whole package was soaked, this product smells good , did not feel like residue when dried and did not cause any skin irritation.  

Indescribable 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science By Louie Giglio Review

34530732

Indescribable
100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science
By Louie Giglio

Discover the Wonders of the Universe with the Creator

It’s impossible to out-imagine God. He orchestrates time, creates light, and speaks things into existence—from the largest stars to the smallest starfish. God is a powerful, purposeful, personal, unparalleled Creator.

Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens tell the glory of God. And the skies announce what his hands have made.”

Indescribable displays the majesty of creation with scientific findings, photography, and original illustrations. These 100 devotions encourage awe at God’s creativity with an in-depth look at

• Space, Galaxies, Planets, and Stars

• Earth, Geology, Oceans, and Weather

• Animals—from Hummingbirds to Dinosaurs

• Our Minds, Bodies, and Imaginations

Each devotion features a “Be Amazed” section with fascinating facts, hands-on activities, and a closing prayer. Based on Louie Giglio’s popular messages “Indescribable” and “How Great Is Our God,” Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science will help kids discover the incredible creation of our indescribable God.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I think this book would be great for religious homeschool families that have younger children.   While any age can learn with this faith as well as science based book, this is geared for younger readers.  With easy to read and learn font as well as illustrations this book will catch your readers interest.

Counseling Under the Crosswill guide pastors, counselors, lay leaders, and friends toward a rich understanding of the gospel that will directly impact their personal ministry to others.

Through lively vignettes, real-life stories, and direct quotes from Luther, readers will be equipped to apply the gospel to themselves and others so together they find their hope and help in Christ alone.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  I found it to be a bit stuffy in a more of a informational tone then a story and it dragged on.   I think the topic chosen was hard to write about and then adding your own words but teaching of another as factual is near impossible.  I think that unless you have a need to find God in Martin Luther King's words, this book might not be for you.

Three Blue Orange Games and Reviews

 Eye ‘N Seek
Ages 6 & Up | 2-6 Players
Spin to win! Flip a card and then rotate the wheel to find its matching icon in the windows. Hurry, it’s a race! Spot the match before your opponents to win the round and a point. With 6 double-sided wheels, 100 icons, 3 levels, and 6 games to play the searching fun is endless!

Cassandra's Review-  Easy set up, the rules are simple from the start and the game can go slow or fast depending on your skill level.  If you have a child with special needs this can be modified as a one person game.

 Kingdomino
Ages 8 & Up | 2-4 Players

Explore the lands and expand your kingdom! Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing
kingdom, making sure that at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. Build up your 5x5 grid as best you can, as the
player with the richest lands takes it all! Game of the year winner!

Cassandra's Review- We did not get to play this one fully, we tried, I read the directions and we failed, I looked it up online and watched the video that describes how to play and the kids got distracted and overwhelmed.  So what seems simple or like it is going to be a game for everyone, for my family it was not.  It was more of a headache unfortunately and we just could not get into it.  It was a little bit of a hype up stating game of the year, for me because I thought that it was on par with the other games by this brand, until I attempted to play it.   Also not everyone has access to the video when they are trying out the game.
Zero Down
Ages 8 & Up | 2-4 Players

Less is more in this subtle card game. Group the cards in your hand by number and color to try cancelling out their point values. Multiples of cards are scored as zero, so each number is only counted once. Trade cards while keeping a watchful eye on your opponents. Mind your strategy as you all reach for the goal of cancelling out your hand and achieving the ultimate combo: ZERO!

Cassandra's Review-  The is a deck of card type game meaning it is just a deck of cards.  You shuffle lay out and swap or knock.  It reminded me of a card game by in the older years of card playing with a spin on the SET game mingled in.   It is not easy to play, but it is fun when you get the hang of it and the kids can play as teams if they need to help each other or have a lower skill level.  Of course you can always create your own rules or modify for your child.

I received complimentary product.

Fin Fun's Wild Things Animal Blankets Review

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  Super adorably cute and soft.  If you have a child that loves soft feeling material and pretend play this is going to be a great gift.  It transforms your little one into a growling or hibernating bear.   It is simple to place on and can be removed with ease.  It fits most ages, but looks better on a shorter, smaller person.   I think if it was a little longer most adults would like to wear it as well.

Cassandra's Review- I found this tote to be a great quality and very durable, with easy to hold handle that make trick or treating more about filling up the bag then holding a pillow case.  I choose the dark writing and the glow in the dark image is easy to see, I did activate it with a flashlight first though.

'The Pretender' $75 Amazon GC and prize basket Giveaway

The Pretender: A Blackguard in Disguise - Book I in The Caselli Family Series by Ta`Mara Hanscom

Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.

Frankie Valli sang "My Eyes Adored You," and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.

It's within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined-and had been for many years-yet they had no idea. 

From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart---and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride's deception.

Born and raised in South Dakota, Ta`Mara loves to write about the Great Plains and the beauty and people of Italia. While her husband and children manage their two pizza ristorante, Ta`Mara works full time on The Caselli Family Series, and ministers to women. It is Ta`Mara s prayer that as the readers explore the truths in these volumes, they will come away with a new perspective on love, forgiveness, obedience, and God's plan for marriage

Find out more about Ta'Mara at  https://www.tamarahanscombooks.com .

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  Hurt, Pain, times of emotional distress as well as feelings that most people never need to feel come out in this book.  The author chose a story that brings sadness and sorrow to a reader.  While the writing is powerful and the settings are described perfectly, I feel that unless you as a reader want to put down a book and spend the rest of the day or night thinking about the topics included, this may not be a good fit for you.   The writing style chosen invites you to become a part of this story like a fly on the wall.  It opens a window for you to peer into and may not go well with some more religious people. 

Med School Uncensored by Richard Beddingfield MD Review



Med School Uncensored:

The Insider's Guide to Surviving Admissions, Exams, Residency, and Sleepless Nights in the Call Room

by Richard Beddingfield MD

An entertaining insider's guide to the good, the bad, and the ugly of med school--with everything pre-med and med students need to know, from day one, to maximize opportunities and avoid mistakes.

Cardiothoracic anesthesiologist and recent med school grad Dr. Richard Beddingfield serves as an unofficial older brother for pre-med and incoming med students--dishing on all the stuff he would've wanted to know from the beginning in order to make the most of med school's opportunities, while staying sane through the gauntlets of applying to and succeeding at med school, residency, fellowship, and starting work as a new physician.

With advice from additional recent Ivy League med school grads and top-tier hospital residents, this all-in-one guide is a must-have for everyone who dreams of becoming a doctor.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I think this book is excellent because it teaches, gives and presents in a steady as well as smooth way.  The if you are in or thinking about going into Med school this is a great tool to help and guide you.

Crated with Love Subscription Box Review


In 2014 Tyler and Michelle Turk founded the subscription box service Crated with Love.

The mission at Crated with Love is to keep the best part of your relationship alive and thriving through love and laughter with creative, simple date ideas.

Many other subscription boxes focus on the items within.  These are a little different. Every item in each box has a designated purpose in building skills in your relationship.  They do not source items based on price or perceived value, but rather on how well they connect with their theme and activities. If you are looking to get a bunch of “things”, Crated with Love may not be the best fit. However, if you are looking for specialized date night activities focused on improving your relationship skills as a couple, they are there for you! 
BET ON MY LOVE
$24.99


WHAT DO I GET IN EACH BOX?

I can’t tell you. Why? Part of the recipe for a great date is a little mystery and spontaneity. The surprise activities will help you connect more intimately with your partner. What I CAN tell you is that you will have a fantastic time if you put forth the effort. Each box has a specific theme and with that theme comes 3-4 date activities, games, or projects, all centered around romance and laughter, two crucial ingredients to a healthy relationship.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  I had mixed feelings about the boxes I received, while I do understand that they are created for the pourpose of helping people who would not otherwise be able to start up a session like this, I still feel that with some creative thinking you could replicate this stuff at home. The bottom line for me with this is basically it depends on why and who you gift this box to that will make all the difference.  

I am not going to say that these are not thoughtfully packed or that they are not going to help to bring a couple closer.   I think that if there is some kind of lacking in a relationship, the thought starters and goals may really be appreciated.  

You will need to have a partner, you will also need to be ready for anything, because at some point over sharing might even lead to other things both good and bad.  There has to be a great effort and time spent on these boxes to really get the full effect of the worth they offer.  

While these might have not been the perfect fit for me, I still feel they are worth sharing about and could benefit my readers. 


Good Night Tales by C.S. Fritz Review

34593657

Good Night Tales: A Family Treasury of Read-Aloud Stories
by C.S. Fritz

Good Night Tales leads your children through a vivid, beautiful, and imaginative adventure through Scriptural truths. This collection of Scripture-based stories brings a forest to life through animal kings, trolls, plum-loving giants, and fiddle-playing crickets. Stories include reimaginings of Israel asking for a new king, parables about searching for the kingdom of God, and Psalm 23

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  The book is written for people with a strong imagination, it is perfect for young ones and with the added illustrations creates a group of really cute stories.  It is faith based, but not preachy although you do get the meanings if not subtly.  I enjoyed not only reading it outloud to my whole family, but also sharing this one with friends.

Her work has been published in the UK, USA, and Australia for clients such as Highlights, Five Mile Press, OUP, and Little Bee Books (book forthcoming). She enjoys using watercolors, crayons, ink, and digital illustration to create a variety of artistic styles. In her spare time, Gillian enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and pottering about in the garden on sunny days.

Cassandra's review- An easy to read children's book, or a book that is easy for you to read to your child.  It is simple enough to read in a sitting or a few pages a night before bed.   I think the author shares a good message along with a fantastic read for younger children, but really any age would benefit from the meaning.

Reading People by Anne Bogel Review



Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything
by Anne Bogel

If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world. But what we're finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn't as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz.

For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them uniquely them (and why that matters), popular blogger Anne Bogel has done the hard part--collecting, exploring, and explaining the most popular personality frameworks, such as Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others.

She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.

Cassandra's review-  I think of this author as someone who will tell it like it is and clearly line it out for you.  I feel her book is sincere, real and very on point.  The research must have been really extensive  to be able to key in so precisely.   I actually wanted to learn more about this author and check out her blog etc, because of the writing style and voice that she puts forth.  This book when used correctly can be a life changer.
