Ellie Claire 365 Devotional Journal Review

The journals were provided to me by Ellie Claire Gifts to review, but all opinions are my own.

I have recently been given the chance to work with Ellie Claire Gifts and am glad be able to share some inspirational resources with you. A few weeks ago, I reviewed a set of Art Journals and gave away two of them to a couple of my followers on Instagram! With the new year approaching, many of us are making goals and one of mine is always to spend time daily in the Word. One thing that helps me stay on track is having a daily devotional I can easily turn to.  I am excited to share with you a set of 365-day devotional journals.

With the new year approaching, many of us are making goals and one of mine is always to spend time daily in the Word. One thing that helps me stay on track is having a daily devotional I can easily turn to.





All three have beautifully illustrated covers with modern artwork. They also have an elastic strap that holds the book closed and a ribbon book mark to save your page. Each daily devotional ends with a thought to meditate on as well as a lined area to record reflections and thoughts.

3 Ways to Style a Plaid Shirt Dress

It has been a while since I have shared a fashion post on here, but I am back today sharing for a special cause. I am joining some of my fellow Aventura Ambassadors to create a Dessember Team to bring awareness to modern day human trafficking and slavery by wearing a dress each day in December.

I am sharing several ways to style a dress and talking about why I am wearing dresses every day in December to help bring awareness to modern slavery and human trafficking.

It’s a simple campaign that started out with one woman, Blythe Hill, who committed to wearing a dress for every day in December as a way to bring awareness to the problem of modern day human trafficking and slavery.

Ellie Claire Art Journal Review

The journals were provided to me by Ellie Claire Gifts to review, but all opinions are my own.

If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you will know that one of my hobbies is Bible Journaling. It is one of the creative ways I spend time in the Word. I also like to use devotionals and journals, as well to take notes on the passages I am reading, or to use for sermon notes. That is why I was excited to be given the opportunity to review three different types of journals from Ellie Claire Gifts.

Each of the Ellie Claire journals provide a focus Scripture verse, prayer prompts, and journaling lines so you can record your personal thoughts and reflections to that day's reading.

They are designed to be used all year-long and are the perfect gift for girls/women of any age! Each of these journals contain journaling lines so you can record your personal thoughts and reflections. They also offer lettering and art tutorials, as well as, coloring pages.

Tips for Getting Your Guest Bedroom Ready for Visitors

This is a sponsored post written by me in collaboration with HomeRight. All opinions are mine alone.


Our guest bedroom does not get used a lot, but since I have family that lives out of town, we tend to have some overnight guests around the holidays. Since the bedroom stays closed up most of the year, this is the perfect time to air it out and spruce it up a bit for holiday house guests. 


 I am sharing my secret weapon for sanitizing the entire bed with HomeRight's Steam Machine, including the mattress and my tips on how to make your guest bedroom feel like home

Today, I am sharing my secret weapon for sanitizing the entire bed...pillows, comfortor, and mattress, since you cannot easily wash these things. I am also sharing a few tips on how to make your guest bedroom feel like home.

Painted Chipboard Christmas Wreath

It is time for this month's Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge, where several of my Cricut-loving blogger friends team up to bring you creative craft ideas. This month's theme is Christmas, to get you in the mood for holiday decorating.

Use the Cricut Maker to make a Christmas wreath from Chipboard and 9 other crafts.

I went back and forth over what I wanted to make. I really wanted to try my hand at using chipboard and the knife blade in my new Cricut Maker. I thought about making ornaments (which I will still do,) but settled on a layered chipboard "Joy" wreath for my door.

Dryel Saves Your Clothes from Shrinking and Fading

This is a sponsored post written by me in collaboration with Dryel. All opinions are mine alone.

My Fall/Winter wardrobe consists of chunky sweaters and dark skinny jeans. I don't have to worry about my sweaters stretching or my dark denim fading or shrinking with Dryel.

I don't have to worry about my sweaters stretching or my dark denim fading or shrinking with Dryel.

I try to get a few wears out of my sweaters and jeans before cleaning them, so I can prolong the life of the piece. Plus, there is nothing worse than tight, fresh-out-of-the-dryer jeans. I prefer mine broken in, don't you? With Dryel, you do not have to worry about this. You can freshen up your jeans and sweaters in about 15 minutes!

Scripture Study Tips with the (in)courage Devotional Bible

I am partnering with Frontgate Blogger Network to bring you the beautiful CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible. All opinions are my own.

It has been a while since I have posted about Bible Journaling, but I am back today to show you the beautiful CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible I received, that is made especially for women! The Bible highlights 50 women in the Bible and how God worked though their lives. It also includes lined journaling space for notes and personal reflection.

If you have never heard of (in)courage, it is an online community for women offering support and resources for meaningful connection. For me personally, I struggle with knowing where to start and what to study, so resources like this website are a great help for me in planning my devotional time.

Felt Flowers with the Cricut Maker and FAQ's

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

I have only had my Cricut Maker a couple of months, but I have already put it to good use making several projects. One of the projects was making felt flowers, which I used on a Fall wreath. This was my first time using felt (can you believe it?!) and it was so easy with the Cricut Maker. I am going to share the tutorial with you and answer some frequently asked questions about the Maker.

Felt Flower Grapevine Wreath

I am back with the Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge this month and our theme is Fall. Last year I made several wreaths, but not one for Fall, so I decided to use my new Cricut Maker to make some felt flowers and succulents in Fall colors to use on a grapevine wreath.
