Love, NOW

So saddened by the news coming out of Las Vegas. I’m praying for the victims, their families, for the people who were there and witnessed such horror, for the people watching the videos of this nonsensical violence that will be forever changed from it, for our country, for our WORLD. Love, Now. #prayforvegas

There is SO MUCH GOING ON right now, people. It’s maddening!

Pray. LOVE. Pray. LOVE. Pray some more, and LOVE with all your heart. The world needs us.

romans 8:38

I’m drawn to Romans 8:35 right now, my prayer warriors – read with me:

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”)  No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Let that sink in when you have fear in your heart, when you worry, when your faith fades.

I came across this today, and it rang true (I giggled, of course but it is 100% accurate). That’s why we call ourselves warriors. We are indeed going to battle.

Until next time (in which I promise to deliver something crafty -This mama is itching to get her craft on!) —

Peace and LOVE and Blessings,

Dani

It’s World Gratitude Day!

A reminder to be grateful — to give thanks for all that is good, show appreciation and reflect positively on life.

While I consider the many things I am grateful for (such as my husband, my kids, my family & friends, coffee, belly laughs and uninterrupted nap times), there is one that tops them all.

Grateful for His love, grace and sacrifice. Even in the darkest times, I believe and trust that He is with us and his plans are good.

With Gratitude,

Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Valentine, I’m Stuck on You

February. Love Month. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

You know I love it!

I couldn’t wait to get started on this year’s Valentines for the boys, but I wanted to make it easy and do something personal that I know everyone would love.

I went with my favorite custom shop, Zazzle, to design and print these adorable business card-sized Valentines with stickers featuring my boys! Bonus: They can help me put them together so they can tell all their little friends that they helped make them.

Everyone loves stickers…. and my boys sure do love seeing themselves on a sticker. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

This is a perfect project if you have multiple kids that you need to shell out Valentine’s for, because you’re ordering a whole box of business cards. I get all my business cards through Zazzle – the quality is great and it’s such a great value!

With my two boys and their classes and friends, we will use most of the box. If you don’t need THAT many cards, consider going in together with another mom — that’s an even better deal and you could have a valentine-making party! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

The stickers are great – I opted for the heart-shaped stickers, since it is Valentine’s day, but you can get them in circles as well. You could also use regular store-bought stickers, but I think the personal touch makes these cards wayyy more cute and fun! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

The only supplies you’ll need are some kind of adhesive, such as scrapbooking tape or a tape runner or sticky dots. I had this Scotch double-side tape on hand and it did the trick just fine. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

I cut out my stickers — you can cut squares or make the effort to cut out around the heart (I did NOT have the patience for that on this day…). Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

My cutie.Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Place the adhesive on the back of the sticker and then put the sticker on the card where it says “Place Sticker Here” (convenient, right?). Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Then just have your little one sign his or her name, or do it for them, and you have a super cute Valentine with a sticker that their friends can play with. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Everyone loves stickers! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

You can find the cards here and design your own stickers here.

You're A-Maze-Ing Valentine by Stickelberry

Valentine, You’re A-MAZE-Ing!

How about an easy, no-candy, no-fuss Valentine for your child’s class? I have you covered my friends!A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

With very little effort, you can aMAZE your child and all of his buddies and give them something they all love — a puzzle and a pencil. I mean, the little things really get them excited at this time in their lives…. although, I tend to get excited about pencils, too. :o)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I have to say, creating a maze wasn’t as easy as I expected it to be – it took way longer than I thought it would! But it was super fun making it. (<—- Geek.)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I’ve made it easy this time — instead of fighting with your printer and paying for new ink cartridges (really, my printer is my nemesis), you can order these babies and have them sent to you!

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

Then all you’ll need is a hole punch and a few minutes of time — you can even enlist your little guy or gal to help punch holes or insert the pencils. So easy!

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

They are double sided — the side with the maze has a matte finish, while the “Happy Valentine’s Day” side is glossy like a postcard – in fact that is exactly what they are, and they are nice and sturdy.

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

You can order your cards here in my Zazzle shop — be sure to go to the coupons page first because there’s always a sale! —> Now through 2/4 get 50% off all Valentine’s Gifts using code 5GIFTSJUST4U at checkout!

Hello, my name is Danielle, and I hoard wrapping paper.Wrapping Paper from Zazzle

I bet you thought I was going to say FABRIC! Well, that too, but I really love wrapping paper almost as much. All things paper, really. The colors, the designs, the way you can make something that is blah look so beautiful with something as simple as paper…
