"County Rescue" on Great American Pure Flix

 Many thanks to Great American Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

I must admit, when I first heard the name "County Rescue", my first thought was a county fair or something to that effect. How wrong I was! This new show is about EMT's experiencing the beginning of their careers and the challenges that are inevitable. 

If you enjoy a good medical drama, this might be right up your alley. The first episode introduces two very new, very nervous EMT's. I admire anyone who can work as an EMT because they are on the front-line, taking care of people on (probably) one of the worst days of their lives. This is the story of an EMT unit who save lives while navigating their own life, love, and faith.

The characters face trials of faith, insecurity, and so many things that many of us face regularly. 

This show will be available on Great American Pure Flix on 2/23/24, and on Great American Family on 2/26/24. Remember, everything on these platforms is clean and safe for the whole family to watch.

Let me know what you think once you have a chance to watch it! Until then, check out the trailer here.

Quick Crafting Projects For The Home

As a crafty person, the chances are that you love wearing or displaying your homemade pieces. After all, these are entirely unique to you. Plus, nothing quite beats the satisfaction of being able to say ‘I made it’ when someone compliments you on that new bag, sweater, or pair of gloves

Yet, when it comes to our homes, too many of us crafty folks prefer to fall back on shop-bought pieces. In part, this is because of an imagined difficulty in making home décor that’s always on display and will typically receive heavy usage.

Mom & Me craft: Hand Print Polar Bears

 Most of the crafts I've done with my kids over the years have involved me supervising while they craft, but occasionally it's fun to craft with them. My daughter loved making these "Mom & Me Hand Print Polar Bears" not too long ago.

I got the idea from Simple Everyday Mom. All you need is a glue stick, googly eyes, construction paper and scissors!

 Many thanks to Great American Pure Flix for providing a sample of this product for review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends! I hope you’re loving time spent with friends and family today. May your turkey be perfectly flavorful and moist, and your pies leave you content. If you’re among the population that waits until after Thanksgiving to do anything Christmas related, tomorrow is the big day.

Halloween crafts to use up your yarn stash

This post may include sponsored links. All opinions are my own

If you're anything like me, you have *somehow* accumulated more yarn than you'll ever be able to use. It's hard to let go of that precious yarn because you know it's worth. 

However, if you've realized it's time to use some of it up, here are a few fun Halloween crafts/activities to do so:

1. Giant spider's web: let your kids go wild between two trees/other objects in your front yard. I made a giant spider's web one year, and ever since, my kids love doing it themselves. This year, my 9 year old made our spider's web on her own and spent hours happily working on it.

Just hand them the skeins of yarn you're ready to let go of, and set them loose!
