Try Chocodate for the Holidays

This post contains affiliate links.

Chocodate's are a date stufed with an almond and then covered in Belgian chocolate. The bag comes with individually wrapped candies, great for setting out during holiday celebrations. They come in four different varieties: milk, dark, assorted, and coconut. I was sent a package of Chocodate's to try. I am going to take them to our Thanksgiving gathering. 

They are available at Amazon.

Three Fantastic Art Journals from Ellie Claire


I just received these fabulous art journals to review. Faith & Lettering Journal, The Illustrated Word, and Illuminate Your Story are some of the best quality books I have ever seen. Their photos don't do justice to the feel of the paper, the embossing of the covers, and the gold foiling. Each journal has it's own focus. 

Faith & Lettering Journal
Teaches many different types of handlettering with space for practice and ample pages for journaling. The binding includes an area to secure a writting tool of your choice. This text sells for $15.99

The Illustrated Word
This journal combines 40 illustrations for coloring along side pages for journaling. Illustrations of full color also grace the journaling pages from the Museum of the Bible.
This text sells for $15.99

Illuminate Your Story
The smallest of the three but with the most detail to an elastic closure, another for containing a writing instrument on the spine, and a ribbon bookmark. Inside the back cover there is a pocket for keepsakes. This journal teaches how to draw illuminated letters with step out instructions as well as pages for journaling. This text sells for $18.99

Each journal far exceedes it's price point in the quality of content as well as the quality of paper they are constructed from. Each one would make for a very special gift for yourself or others. You will be very pleased with any one of these books.

Hot Glue Hacks and Crafts

This post contains affiliate links

Two blogging friends wrote a book about Hot Glue. Angie Holden from The Country Chic Cottage and Carolina Moore from Always Expect Moore. As a craft blogger myself, I like to promote those other bloggers in my niche. I had a chance to review Hot Glue Hacks and Crafts and I am sure you will be able to find a new way to use your glue gun that you have not tried before. 

You can find it on Amazon for your Kindle or as a paperback. It would make a fun Christmas gift for those crafty people in your life. Or why not consider throwing a book exchange for your group of craft friends?
