Journals Unlimited Review and Giveaway!

Gift Guide Post #10

Hi Neighbors!

Fall came in with a big blast today!  It is actually a little chilly out.  I LOVE this weather!  Hopefully everyone is having a good day today.

Journals Unlimited sent me their Contacts Journal.  My husband has been needing a new address book, and this is perfect!  It has plenty of room for writing your entries.  Not only is there a space for name, address, and phone number, there is also a spot for cell phone, email, website, work address and notes.  And it is not all smashed together.  Nor is the space to write in microscopic!  This journal is from their Write it Down Series.  They have so many to choose from.  There are journals for trips, books, camping, golfing, teaching, gardening, etc.  There are also some for the men, fishing, hunting, hiking, motorcycle, etc.  And they come in three sizes; full size, mid size and mini.  So, if you need a small one to carry in your purse, Journals Unlimited has it!  Each of the journals has prompts to help you get started.

Behind Journals Unlimited:
I've always kept a personal journal to express my thoughts, excitement, and concerns for the moment and it helps me to plan and set goals for the future. Everyone experiences important events worth remembering. Whatever your age or passion, keeping a journal is a great way to capture and recall your thoughts and ideas, while recording all your precious memories.
With just an idea, the company was started in the summer of 1997. I was on vacation on the west coast of Michigan when I walked up into a Barnes & Noble book store. I wanted to pick up a vacation journal and envisioned finding a series of journals with the prompts such as our journals offer (Where I traveled, Where I stayed, People I met, etc.). There was nothing even close, only a wide variety of blank journals. Almost immediately the idea was born! By the end of the day, I had developed several titles as well as the craft color and cover design.

The winner of this giveaway will receive the mini journal called Out of the Mouth of Babes.  It is adorable.  It has places for you to fill in all those funny little sayings children have.  There is a place for who said it, how old they were, date, place it was said and what happened when they said it.  One of my children used to want to go ride biking.  My husband didn't want me to correct her, he thought it was so cute.  Or because we raised lop eared rabbits, one of my children looked at some cows in a field and said, "Look, lop eared cows!"  We all laughed.

The full sized journals are $18.95 and the minis are $5.95.  Any one of these would make a great gift idea.  Get the Out of the Mouth of Babes for an expectant mother.  Fishing or hunting for men.  Gardening for that special someone in your life who loves to garden.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.

I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
