Zirrly Super Beads Mega Pack Review


Today we are happy to be bringing to you our review of the Mega Pack of Super Beads  from Zirrly.  We were given a choice of  projects and we chose a Mega Pack of these beads with all the tools to complete several projects. You fuse beads together using water ( no iron needed ).  The beads can be used for children as young as 5+ years old with some assistance from someone older and also work well for older children as well as adults, making it a fun family arts & crafts project.

Our Mega Pack came with Plastic project boards, Project cards ( that fit to the boards), 4500+ beads, Beading tool ,two small water Spray bottles, Project instruction sheets showing diagrams and tips & tricks on the back !The children looked them over and decided to do their own choice of project or shape as I felt this would be more enjoyable for them in the time we had on that afternoon.  I got out some of my Tupperware containers and divided up some of the beads for each of the children.  I explained how they needed to put the beads in the design they wanted to have and then we would lightly spray them with water using the spray bottles. (being careful not  to saturate the beads) They really seemed to enjoy thinking about what they wanted to make and then sorting through the beads and placing them on the boards in the configuration needed.  We sprayed them and went about our afternoon.Later that evening I came back  and using the tool loosened the projects one by one (slowly and carefully so I wouldn’t pull them apart).  I was amazed at how well just spraying them with water had made them adhere to one another.  The children really like the things they made and still have them in on their desk area near their computers.This project is Easy, Fun and very affordable if you are looking for something that does not take over an hour.  I feel it is an affordable project that could be used for VBS, Summer Camp, Sunday School or just a nice project for your children to do.  Many small projects can be done from one Mega Pack and if you have more then 4 students/children you would need more then one Mega Pack, so that you have enough project boards for each one. The first project is done by Faith (age 15) Rainbow Heart.

A tiny project by Daniel (age 10) Halo Helmet


Project by Hope (age 14)  Minecraft Creeper


We really enjoyed using these beads and we will be making more fun projects in the future ! We are trying to come up with a 3D project we can all enjoy ! I hope you will think about adding these to your Art Class or Creative Time ! For more ideas see the below projects available from Zirrly!

Magic Stix Washable Marker Review

The Pencil Grip, Inc.


We are pleased to bring you our review of the 24 pack of  Magic Stix Washable Markers from The Pencil Grip, Inc.   These markers are no odor, have a vented safety caps and come in a nice variety of bright bold colors. They are also Non-Toxic Markers. They claim they will not dry out for 7 days, We tested this and were very pleased with our findings. These tempera paint sticks when used on a project dry in just 90 seconds. These paint sticks really work for a mess free paint experience. One that you and your children will enjoy !

7 Day Test

I just had to test out this theory that these markers would not dry out for 7 days. We took out one olive/army green colored marker and I laid it on my desk on its side with the cap off. Seriously I believed it would dry out or leak all over my desk !  It did not do either, which is a real great thing.  I can’t tell you how many times the kids have lost a cap to a marker only to have it dry out in 3 days time. Well no more worrying about that, we have a week or more to find the cap before I need worry. I know that you have experienced this with your markers in the past.  I know I am not alone in this. These markers hold up to the claim of not drying out for 7 days, but I think its much longer then this ! You’ll be amazed ! ( I forgot to write something on day one )

Hope’s Project

She is my artistic child, this is something that we share in life !  I was excited for her to try these on one of her pages from her adult coloring book. Coloring for INSPIRATION that she received at Christmas time. It has some of the most awesome pictures in it.

She chose to color some koi fish from this coloring book and they turned out so colorful and she enjoyed this so much with the Magic Stix Washable Markers. She spent several hours working on them and really loved the selection of colors she could chose from. This is her completed project ! She says they are her “Rainbow Fish”.

IMG_20180131_145721 (1)IMG_20180131_144721 (1)

She really enjoyed the marks and the process and it was a relaxing and calming things or her to do. ( She is bipolar & ODD ) So we need times to “chill” and really relax. These Markers have really added a wonderful advantage to art for her. It also has really helped me to get her to take time to focus on something she really enjoys. I am so thankful for this, it means so much to us that she can find things she enjoys and can do on her own. She found the markers easy to hold and to use ( not bulky not like the other markers we have tried ).  They are easy to control where your coloring.

This was a fun and enjoyable experience for us. We will be using the Magic Stix Washable Markers now for all our art projects. The nice carrying case allows us to take them along with us anywhere. In the van, to the beach or to see family.  This will make them easier for taking on vacation this summer. We will be able to create and experience everything we find or see in an exciting way! This is what Life & Homeschooling are all about!

If you are in need of some wonderful Markers, I hope you will give Magic Stix Washable Markers a try !

My Review

I really loved these candles ! I tried Coffee Shop, which included Coffee Bean,
Hazelnut, Chai Tea. Each one smelled exactly as you would expect from the name. My favorite of the three is Chai Tea with it’s nice spice scent that is not at all over powering but just the right mixture. One thing I really liked about the candles is no smoking while burning.  They burned clean and I never had to trim the wick as its self trimming cotton wicks. These candles would make a wonderful gift for any occasion !  They really make a house a home, as they help to create a relaxing atmosphere !

You can buy Old Factory Candles on Amazon



I purchased these candles on Amazon and this is my own honest review of them. I do not receive anything for my review, but this link is an affiliate link, which helps me to earn a little money to help provide for my family ! For which I am thankful for !

My Review

OK, we all need Omega 3’s right… Yes we do and we all hate fish oil taste or after taste ! Well guess what ?  No longer do you have to have that aweful taste … TrueSol has a lemon flavored Omega 3 !  I think this is totally awesome as I really couldn’t get past the fishy taste of most of the Omega 3 products. Now I can get my Omega 3’s and feel good about it.

My Review

Well having diabetic folks in my family I am always on the lookout for low glycemic sweeteners that are healthy for us. Also love finding things that aide in weight loss. I like Yacon syrup as it is a lot like molasses and can be used like any other sweetener. It tastes like molasses or maple syrup and that is a great taste for on pancakes or french toast  Its great in tea or coffee too. If your diabetic this only has 3 grams of sugars compared to other things its great to use.

Vacay water enhancer Review


Vacay™ is an all natural water enhancer that helps to relieve stress & anxiety, ease tension, and calm the mind.

Vacay was created for people that just love to chill. It’s no mystery that just as many people like to chill compared to those that like to consume energy drinks. In our eyes, there wasn’t a single relaxation beverage product on the market that had exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a product that tasted sweet and was all natural with no harmful preservatives, inexpensive with 10 servings in 1 package, and small enough that we could carry in our pocket for whenever we needed to chill. Since many people use the phrase “I need a Vacay” when they are stressed out, we decided this was the perfect name for our beverage mixer, now people can #drinkvacay whenever they need to get away. In late 2013 Vacay was put into motion and it is our mission to provide an inexpensive #vacay to everyone that needs to escape the daily stress of life.

The proprietary functional ingredient blend for Vacay consists of l-theanine, chamomile, and passion flower. Sweetened with Stevia combined with an all natural lemonade flavor, Vacay turned out to be a delicious relaxation lemonade.

Perfect For:

Stressful Jobs
Anyone With Anxiety
Busy Moms
Tense muscles
Sleeping Problems

My Review

I  am so glad that I am here today telling you about Vacay Water Enhancer!  It not only enhances water, it will enhance your life… It is so nice that when you drink it , it truly relaxes you. I seem to be more sensitive to things so I used only half of what it called for and well it really took the edge off for me.  I was relaxed and felt less stressed.  Yup I do stress out at times, mainly when dealing with the issues of life that really get to me.  Getting no help with the house or getting sick and getting behind on things really does a number on me.  Well when you start feeling this way and your needing to calm and relax this is a wonderful natural way to do just that! This really will help you and anyone who has anxiety or stresses easily well this should be your all natural way to deal with it.
