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

New Guest Check Loaded Folders

Today,  I want to introduce a new project and product I am working.  It's about using those lovely guest check tickets for different crafts projects.  I created a new product for my shop at Etsy that you can use it for bible journaling, junk journals, snail mail, scrapbook and much more!

Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote my last post. I have been working on some projects lately. But, here I am again.

Being a full time mom it’s not easy, but it’s possible and so rewarding. Right now, my baby just turned 1 year and 4 months old… wow, this is going fast. In the meantime, I try to enjoy every moment with him.

Today, I want to introduce a new project and product I am working. It’s about using those lovely guest check tickets for different crafts projects. I created a new product for my shop at Etsy that you can use it for bible journaling, junk journals, snail mail, scrapbook and much more!

Let’s see! – I created a small folder with those guest check tickets and loaded them with supplies.

What is included in those little folders? Stickers, paper clips (altered), sequins (wooohooo I love sequins), paper pieces, ephemera, flowers, ribbons and more.

The price is super affordable and there is only a few designs (one of a kind) actually. Check out the pictures for more details. Maybe this could be a DIY project for you or maybe you just want to buy something different already made. Head over the shop to see more options and new products!

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!

Bible Verse Journal

I love journals! I’ve been during these days working on a special journal. One about bible verses. I found out it’s like therapy to me, to create, decorate and study my favorite bible verses all at the same time. Here is a little bit about what I’ve doing.

Bible Verse Journal

Journaling is part of my life. I always love to take notes, record memories and thoughts. I started this little journal, writing my favorite bible verses.

You can follow my account on Instagram to see more ideas! Follow Here!

I take my time to decorate every entry and I do this in daily basis. I use papers, stickers, ephemera, and much more. I give some space for creativity. Then, I study those bible verses that have been a strenght for me and start writing them. These helps me with verse memorization too!

I got this small, lovely journal from Yarisi & Co, Follow Here! She has beautiful products like assorted papers, envelopes, decorated journals and more!

What about you? Do you like to record your favorite verses of the bible? This is a great idea for a gift or to have at hand a journal when you need some strengh from the Word of God.

Check out some other posts I have about making a prayer journal too!

See you on the next post!
