Secret Words | Day One

Graphic Image for Heirloom Quality Christmas Gifts

Graphic Image is your source for heirloom quality specialty books, journals, planners, frames and so much more. They use the finest quality leathers, smyth-sewn binding and their signature simple graphic designs in creating their fine products. With so many beautiful leather textures, colors and grains to choose from, you are certain to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list from family members and friends to the hard to shop for boss and co-workers. I love that once you select that perfect gift, you can then have it personalized making your loved one or friend feel extra special.

I am honored to show off my newest Graphic Image book, "The Scrabble Players Dictionary" in Bright Orange Leather. This limited edition book is absolutely stunning! In addition to being the ultimate guide to Scrabble, it is certain to stand out as a beautiful piece of room decor. It is bound by hand and the title and graphics are embossed in metallic gold. I can't get over how gorgeous this book is and it's also a terrific resource for a lover of word games like my family. This book includes over 100,000 playable two- to eight-letter words including 4,000 new entries and variant spellings. It's a wonderful large size at 9.4" x 6.9" x 1.5" and the font is fairly large and easy to read. Besides my Bible, this is by far the favorite book I have ever owned. I love leaving it out on my end table and showing it off when it's not in use. I believe this would make an excellent gift for any adult or student on your list.

Share Encouragement and Love with Lunchbox Love

Lunchbox Love, Kids, Lunch Notes, Encouragement, Positive Thoughts

I love my family so much and I am so grateful for each and every one of them. There are times that I wonder to myself, "Do they realize how deep my love for them goes?" Or "Do they even know how sincerely grateful I am for everything they do?" Even though I know how I feel, I want to make sure that I convey my feelings to my loved ones so they truly know how I feel about them, too. A great way to express your feelings to your loved ones is with Lunchbox Love. Lunchbox Love offers a full array of credit card sized note cards with thoughtful messages geared towards helping you connect with your children during the school day. I was honored with the opportunity to check out several types of the card collections including Lunchbox Love for Kids Volumes 1-4. I love a product that helps me communicate with and inspire my children in a fun way! Each of these cards features a positive note on one side and fun trivia on the other. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Dali Wall Decals add the Perfect Touch!

Dali Wall Decals, Vinyl, Stickers, Monograms, Nursery Decorations

I spend a lot of my time on Pinterest admiring beautiful wall accents and decorations. I especially love seeing all the inspirational quotes and personalized wall decals. I always thought that having one on my wall would have to wait until I owned my home as I was under the impression that they were permanent. When I found out that they could be removed and could be used by renters, I was one happy girl! I could not wait to scroll through all the available options Dali Decals had to offer.
