In the era of technology that we are living, family sharing time has been affected. We no longer take time to talk face to face, but we are very focused on cell phones. We have stopped enjoying other things that add more value to the family.

I want to share simple and creative ways in which we can enjoy all together as a family. Different things we can do. This post intends to share some great ideas from the book “52 Uncommon Family Adventures” by Randy Southern. Let’s see!

This book is a practical tool for parents (that’s I love the most). I am in need of options and ideas to create beautiful memories in my family, specially with a 1.5 year old boy playing around. In this time we are living I want him to experience other activities other than using a phone, watching TV or playing video games. I know that in a moment of his life that is going to happen. But, what of the things that I can sow in him from such an early age?

Here is where this book enters to give me ideas and options to connect with my boy with different activities that we both can enjoy. I love scrapbooking and all paper crafting projects. While I was reading this book one the activities that caught my attention was “Writing Thank-You Notes” . We can give words of affirmation, give thanks, say “I love you” in a different creative way.

Another activity that I liked was “Cities to Explore”. There are moments that we love to stay at home, but sometimes we just want to explore and explore. That’s the perfect moment to learn something new from another place near us. This book challenges your family to: “see many different cities, towns, villages and municipalities you can visit in a single day”. It sounds exhausting but fun!

You can buy gifts for the members of the family while your explore other places. Tell stories or sign songs while in the car.

Other ideas or activities in the book are:

** Hide and Seek

** Interviews

** Toilet Paper Olympics

** Indoor Camping

You can read an explanation of each one of these activities and much more in the book! Join below for a chance to win one book, you will love it! If you want to purchase this book visit this LINK

Patterned Paper and Faith Journals

During these past months I’ve been working with prayer journals and bible verse journals. One of the things that I use the most are the patterned papers or scrapbook papers. They are great to decorate and personalized almost every craft project.

I wrote a post about how to make a prayer journal (that you can read here). I am still working on that journal, where I wrote my prayers and those prayers that have been answered by God. Also, I started a bible verse journal. Where I write my favorite bible verses or those verses I am studying.

Now, how do I use the papers and where do I find them?

First, I use them as backgrounds in my pages, as tabs, as tags and to journal in them. There are tons of uses for scrapbook paper!

I find papers in different places like:

Creative Market – I use those digital scrapbook papers you can buy (or free), I printed out and use them in the journals.

Yarisi & Co – This is an Etsy Store, specilized in stationery, envelopes, greeting cards and more! But, there is a assorted paper pack that is my favorite! It comes with different sizes, patterns, envelopes, tags and more! Perfect for journals!

Pinterest Search – You can make a pinterest search for digital scrapbook papers and you will find plenty of options. Again, you will need a printer.

Local or Hobby Stores – I know there is a few stores that you can find a variety of scrapbook papers. You can visit the store or buy online!

The possibilities with scrapbook papers are endless. I love to work with them in my faith journals. You should give it a try!

Making your own prayer journal

One project I wanted to start during this season was making my own prayer journal. But I wanted to make this project a “do it yourself project”. I wanted to take my time, step by step and enjoy the process.

While I work in this prayer journal I want to share with my readers the process and how I’ve been doing until I finished. So, here is a little bit about how you can make your very own prayer journal.

Make your own prayer journal:

First, I started decorating the front of the journal. What materials I used?
I got a notebook at Dollar Tree for $1 on my last trip to Orlando, Florida. Isn’t that amazing? To find so many things at super low prices at the Dollar Tree Stores?

Well, once I got my notebook… I found on Pinterest a free printable for bible journaling and got an extra sheet printed at my local school supply store to decorate my journal. I found out this printable so lovely and beautiful that I decided to use it for my journal.

I bought an assorted patterned paper pack at Yarisi&Co, that I wanted to get for a long time ago. Finally bought them! This pack comes with more than 50 assorted papers (different patterns and sizes) perfect for crafts projects.

I had some washi tape that I also used to decorate the journal.

Finally, used some paper pieces and tabs from Illustrated Faith that I already had. Here is a picture, you can see how I used all these materials. I just got creative! At the end of this post you can see all the links for the materials 😉

The tittle of my prayer journal is “Jesus, my first love”. Oohh… I also used some stamps at the end from Illustrated Faith too.

The bible tabs I used includes words like “love, passion, believe…” I thought they were very aligned with what I wanted to create. I just love the final touch they gave them to my journal.

As you can see, this is just the front of the journal. In the following posts I will sharing the other pages and how I decorated them. Stay tuned for the development of this project. Hope this motivates you to create your very own prayer journal. Also, I hope this gives you some ideas on how to start it.

This book gives us the opportunity for our children to interact with the book through touching and feeling different textures. This helps them in their development. The book is perfect for children from the age of 0 to 5 years.

The story is short and easy to read. This allows us to interact more with the textures of the book while we read it.

In God Bless You and Good Night Touch and Feel, sleepy little ones are reminded of God’s blessings and how much they are loved. The delightful rhyming story takes readers through several scenes of snuggly animals who are getting ready for bed from putting on pj’s, brushing teeth, and saying good-night prayers. Now with added touch-and-feel elements, children can engage with the story even more. God Bless You and Good Night Touch and Feel will be a favorite part of the bedtime ritual for parents and children.
