Spooky Fun with the October Shop Swago Board!

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shop Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 150 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

Go to the Swag page and make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.

Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.

Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value – up to 150 SB.

Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

The game ends Friday, October 12th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Many years ago he wrote the song “I Can Only Imagine” which speaks of how one might react being before God in the kingdom of Heaven. This book seeks the same questions as that song but in a way, a child might ask and wonder about.

Our Hotel Transylvania 3 Movie Night!

It’s October and that means it’s time to start adding Halloween to our evening family movie nights! Finding this theme of movies and still being able to cater toward a 10, 7, and a 2-year-old can prove a challenge as some movies can be too babyish and others too scary not to mention that mom and dad may check out only minutes into the film! However, we’ve found that the Hotel Transylvania movies cater pretty well to the entire family!

My kids were beyond thrilled to find out we were going to be able to see the Hotel Transylvania 3 this month and the fact we got sent a movie night party pack really took the cake! We decided before we embarked on the adventure the 3rd film promised that we’d watch the first and second film again leading up to it. If you like us can do the same or have an all-day marathon party ending on the 3rd movie, I highly recommend it!

2018 Flock and Fiber Festival

A couple of weeks ago, my family and I made it to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. This visit was our 7th!  I didn’t spend a long time there since it was a long weekend and it was following getting up earlier and out the door for church ( I typically go on Saturdays and not Sundays but something else came up). We headed up after church since we were halfway there from our new home. We took lunch and walked around for a bit. Lots of inspiration for my own fiber related projects.
