Educational Insights: GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope

Children that are in awe of the night sky and outer-space are certain to delight in the Educational Insights: GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope! It specifies it’s for 4-6-year-old children and I feel that’s spot on. My son is 1 month and a few days shy of turning six years old yet he is still enamored with this scope. Its kid-friendly colors, frustration free lens focus and durable design is absolutely perfect for a first telescope.

Holiday Gift Guide: REDWOODVENTURES – IDO3D GO! Drawing Pens! {Review}


If you are looking for an outside of the box, art centered gift for a creative kid this Holiday season, you may want to check out the IDO3D pen sets by RedwoodVentures.  These unique sets are limited only to the imagination of whoever is creating with the pens. Sets come in a variety of options, some even with mechanisms to make creations move around! These are a great option, in my opinion to more expensive models on the market. It’s a great way for a child to expand their artistic abilities!

Bible Journaling by Ellie Claire {Review and Giveaway} #BibleJournalingKit #FlyBy

I’ve seen people create  beautiful works of art in their Bibles.  Pinterest and Instagram  are full of post after post of Bible journaling pictures. One could spend a good amount of time browsing such masterpieces. Being an artist myself, I felt inspired to do my own. I feel this new fad  is a wonderful way to spotlight and make stories and verses that speak to me come to life in a way that means something to me. However,  I wasn’t exactly sure what types of pens, pencils, or other mediums and embellishments to use to get started.

Winter is coming… or should I say it’s already here?
But there’s really no reason to be afraid of the shorter days and colder nights. Fresh snowfall, wind-chilled cheeks, and abundant layers of clothing are a natural part of winter. With at least six months of winter per year, the countries of the North embrace the cold months with enthusiasm—and they could teach us a thing or two about surviving winter.

I recently partnered with Kungs []—a Finnish producer of premium snow brushes and ice scrapers that are tested in the harshest Arctic conditions— to bring you some fun expert tips from one of the coldest countries on Earth: Finland.

Carter’s and Giving Tuesday! (11/29)

Carter’s Giving Tuesday Event (11/29)cartersgtuesAs a mom of three, to two girls and son we have a lot of clothing needs. Carter’s is one of our favorite go-to clothing brands because the clothing not only last to be passed down but they offer great styles from newborns sizing to older children that last.

We usually stock up on pjs twice year, once around Spring time and the other in late Fall.  My kids love helping pick them out and they each have their own particular preferences. For instance, my son loves 2-pieces, my older daughter likes the gowns, and my littlest is in the 1-piece types. I think it swell Carter’s gives one so many options when it comes to sleepwear! They also tend to get Carter’s pj’s from friends and loved ones!

This month we have yet another reason to love Carters! Tomorrow on Tuesday, November 29, for every Carter’s pajama purchased online at or at one of Carter’s 650+ retail stores, Carter’s will donate one of America’s favorite jammies to children in need.
