Jelly Bean Blessings Review

Jelly Bean Blessings
By Tommy Nelson Books
38915953
Jelly Bean Blessings is a cheery seasonal board book that celebrates all springtime blessings! Kids will be drawn to the charming cover and whimsical art, and they'll love the idea of exploring the many reasons we love spring.

With charming art and an adorable cover, Jelly Bean Blessings is the perfect way to celebrate all the wonderful blessings of spring.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- A book with very vivid and beautiful illustrations that kept my children's interest.   The wording felt kind of thrown together and not really much of a praise God book, however the last few sentences do state thank God.  I guess for younger readers the colors are the best part of this book.

8 Minutes a Day to Make an A By Pamela L. Johnson Review

8 Minutes a Day to Make an A!: Quick Change Your Adhd Child Now40598185
Using this System, your child can go from D's and F's to A's and B's within 4-6 weeks and stay there! Your child will also remember to do routines and chores without having to be reminded.

I received a complimentary copy.


Cassandra's Review-  As a parent to children with special needs and one in particular who has ADHD, I can tell you that this book is a good inclusion to the process of learning with your child, but it is not the answer.  All children are different and there is no box or certain place that you can put them as far as learning or behavior and in this aspect there is no way that everyone can use the same methods or get the same results.  To assume that you can read this one book and your whole life is going to change for the better would be unrealistic at best.   I would recommend reading with a grain of salt so to speak and taking what you think might be the best tips from it, to practice in your home.

She lives in Alba Adriatica, Italy, a small town on the Adriatic Sea.

Artist and illustrator Marisa Redondo uses primarily watercolors and oils to create artwork inspired by nature. Growing up in the heart of San Diego, drawing was how she found a calm balance in the busy city. Currently based in Northern California, Marisa is fascinated by nature's creations and the little pieces of life that often go unnoticed, from the fine lines of feathers to the spores of a dandelion. Through watercolor, she explores the organic patterns and intricate details impressed on everything from the earth. Her paintings are a mix of the modern city she came from and the natural land where she now live. Learn more at www.riverlunaart. com.

Artist Margaret Vance paints beautifully vibrant and colorful rock art full of intricate detail and pattern. As in nature, no two painted stones are alike. Each stone and its design is unique. Margaret works with each stone's shape, size, and texture to create a singular mix of art and nature. Learn more at www.etherealandearth. com.

Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds By Philip Schmidt Review

Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds
12 Miniature Structures You Can Build
Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds
Description
Expand the sharing movement to your community with Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds—your complete source for building tiny sharing structures, including plans for 12 different structures, step-by-step photography and instructions, inspirational examples, and maintenance.

Around the world, a community movement is underway featuring quaint landscape structures mounted on posts in front yards and other green spaces. Some are built for personal use, as miniature sheds for gardeners or as decorative accent pieces. More commonly, though, they are evidence of the growing trend toward neighborhood organization and community outreach.

This movement has been popularized by Wisconsin-based Little Free Library (LFL), whose members currently include 75,000 stewards seeking to build community togetherness and promote reading at the same time by sharing books among neighbors. LFL has inspired builders to use similar structures to share things like CDs, food, garden tools, and seeds in the community.

Produced in cooperation with Little Free Library, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is the builder's complete source of inspiration and how-to knowledge. Illustrated throughout with colorful step-by-step photography and a gallery of tiny structures for further inspiration, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds covers every step: planning and design, tools and building techniques, best materials, and 12 complete plans for structures of varying size and aesthetics. In addition, author and professional carpenter Phil Schmidt includes information on proper installation of small structures and common repairs and maintenance for down the road.

Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds even includes information on how to become a steward, getting the word out about your little structure once it's up and running, and tips for building a lively collection.

Community togetherness has never been so at the fore of our consciousness—or so important. Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is one tool on the road to helping you build community in your neighborhood.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Awesome ideas and I would love to have a pre built one for my neighborhood.  I am not sure if I could really take on the project of building a tiny shed, but it looks so fun for a more advanced craftsman.  The whole concept is special and the book is really easy to follow.

Cassandra's Review-  The ideas are great and the designs are so wonderful, but it would take me months to create even the easiest of the ideas. While I might try something similar with wax  or another medium because soap is kind of hard to work with.  The book is going to be perfect for learning and trying the art of soap carving. 

Unique STEAM Toy Budsies Custom Stuffed Animal .@BudsiesToys

I know this Spring parents will be looking for fun toys to keep their kids busy all summer long. Many parents say they want to buy educational toys that their kids can play with over and over again. I want to introduce  Budsies - custom stuffed animals made from kids' artwork.

AdaptiFIT takes the guesswork out of swaddling


As seen on Site;

AdaptiFIT is the only easy/secure swaddle that is fully adjustable to fit your baby. Many swaddle blankets do not work well for an active baby, and can come loose and create a dangerous sleeping environment. Other swaddle devices may not fit babies that are larger or smaller than average, and many parents find that they need to buy multiple swaddle devices as their babies grow.

The Snugglebumpkinz AdaptiFIT Swaddle replaces blankets or other swaddle devices in the crib. Loose blankets can cover baby’s face and interfere with breathing, and many other swaddle devices fit a very narrow range of body dimension which leaves many parents with few options. The AdaptiFIT Swaddle helps baby sleep safer and better. By immobilizing young babies’ arms and/or legs it prevents baby from waking him or herself due to the "Moro" or startle reflex. It is the only infinitely adjustable swaddle that can change with not only a baby’s sleep style, but also their size and developmental capabilities.

AdaptiFIT can swaddle arms in, one arm out, two arms out, hands to face (for self-soothing), or any other style which helps baby feel comfortable and supported. It is the only swaddle device that can grow with baby from their first night home until baby no longer needs to swaddle.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- Not only are they made really well, very comfortable and easy to use, but they are so adorably cute.   It did not shrink when washed and kept its color. 

UNBRIDLED coming to DVD

UNBRIDLED tells the powerful story of an abused girl who teams up with an abused horse on a journey of healing. Directed by John David Ware, the film stars Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight; The Expendables), T.C. Stallings (War Room; Courageous), Rachel Hendrix (October Baby), Jenn Gotzon (Frost/Nixon) and introduces Tea McKay, playing Sarah Miller, the lead character.

 The film is inspired by the equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) program of the Corral Riding Academy in Cary, NC, which helps abused girls heal by pairing them with rehabilitated horses. UNBRIDLED draws attention to sex trafficking and domestic abuse, tackling these difficult issues in a delicate way.

Online rental and purchases may be made at UnbridledMovie.com,  ChristianCinema. com and Wal-Mart is scheduled to carry Unbridled in May 2019.
Unbridled DVD

Gerald McGlothlin, President of Moving Visions Entertainment, Inc. describes his company’s movie, saying, “Unbridled tells the powerful story of an abused girl who teams up with an abused horse on a journey of healing, culminating with the epiphany that any life, no matter how broken, can be made whole again.”


I received a complimentary screening.  

Cassandra's Review-  So much sadness and hurt is shown in this movie, but for the good because it opens eyes.   There is a lot of heart included as well and most people would probably be in some kind of teary but hopeful mood while watching.  The uplifting parts are shown in a way that is powerful not just by words.  The movie has no much to offer the viewer and you will have some talking points to discuss after watching. 

Happy Spring with Salonpas

Are you a person who suffers from pain?  If so these can really reduce pain with topical OTC products that offer a safer and more effective way to become pain free. 

With topical analgesics recommended as the first-line of treatment by physicians in much of the world, it’s time for the United States to follow suit.  The Centers for Disease Control recently started guiding physicians to consider topicals as “alternative, first line” treatment for pain, “thought to be safer than systemic medications” with “lidocaine for neuropathic pain, topical NSAIDs for localized osteoarthritis, topical capsaicin for musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain.”

The Salonpas Pain Relief Patch Large is the first and only FDA-approved OTC pain relieving patches, now double-sized!
 
Salonpas Lidocaine Pain-Relieving Gel Patch provides numbing, unscented maximum strength pain relief available without a prescription.
 
Salonpas Hot provides heat for effective pain relief for up to 8 hours, natural and odor-free with the active ingredient being capsaicin, the compound found in chili peppers.
 
Salonpas Lidocaine Plus Pain Relieving Cream offers maximum unscented pain relief without a prescription and includes benzyl alcohol to numb nerves fast.

I received complimentary product.
