March (& February) Planner Spreads

I always said I would never be one of those people who said “wow this year is flying by,” but in 2018 at by myself saying it often. As you’ve seen in my previous planner lineup I am working with several Happy Planners. I also just recently incorporated a recipe planner into the mix. I still have a desire to add memory planning to my repertoire but I have not started on that yet.

February completely flew by so I did not get a chance to edit and upload a separate video for those spreads. However, I came up with a cute compromised by incorporating both months into one video.

I made sure to get this video up for the month of March early. You can always see a close up of the weekly spreads via my planner Instagram, @Married2KDK. There I tag the shops in each post so you’ll know where the stickers came from.

I truly hope that you enjoy a quick flip through of my planners via this recent YouTube video.

Also, don’t forget to enter this month’s GREAT WASHI GIVEAWAY #2! This month I’m giving away this cute workout washi tape since I am back on my Weight Loss Wednesday (check that out here) journey. To enter you just need to be a US resident, 18+, YouTube subscriber and blog follower.

Magic Stix Markers Review/Giveaway

My children have truly enjoyed creating masterpieces with the Magic Stix Washable Markers by The Pencil Grip, Inc. In preparation for this review, we’ve been using these awesome markers for approximately 6 weeks and have enjoyed every minute of it.

You definitely recognize The Pencil Grip, Inc. because I have reviewed for them before. Upon receipt of this new product I was intrigued by the information they offered with the package. I made it my mission to test every fact to ensure its veracity. By the end of this review you will find out if these markers passed every test and also be given an opportunity to win a set for your household.

The first thing that I tested was the company’s claim that these markers are odorless. I had everyone in the house smell them over, and over, and over, and over again. I was pleasantly surprised that these don’t even have the normal marker scent that other companies have on their “unscented” products. To date no one in the house has been able to catch any scent from either of these markers.

Next we tested out the brightness and boldness of the colors as well as the overall quality of these markers. I was very excited with the packaging of this product because it is sleek, stores easily, lays flat, and doesn’t take up much space at all. I really think this one of the best packaging set ups that I have seen offered by this company. I love that all the caps are the same color so that way you don’t have to worry about trying to match them specifically. The colors were all vibrant, unique, and looked great on the artwork that my children and I created. No matter how many times we’ve used them, even the lightest color still comes through with perfect pigment. I’ve even used these when Bible journaling and noted that the colors dried quickly and did not bleed through to other pages.

Last and definitely not least the biggest claim that these markers will not dry out with the cap off for 7seven days was tested. I was the 100% skeptical about this alleged fact and I couldn’t wait to prove them wrong. I left the light brown marker sitting on the bar top, without the cap for seven days. I placed the cap back on so I could record the giveaway video. The cap was only back on the marker for three minutes before I recorded the results. So, did the marker work after seven days with the cap off? You can find that out those results as well as information about the giveaway via my recent YouTube video.

Overall, the Magic Stix Washable Markers are another true testament to the high quality items that The Pencil Grip, Inc. adds to their product line. We appreciated the opportunity to review these markers and to give a set away to one lucky supporter. As stated in the video this is a United States only giveaway. Please refer to giveaway rules for additional requirements and information.

Today, I Need Some Encouragement 

Last month, my family endured a devastating loss and after all we’ve endured, rest is definitely needed. Usually, I’ve prepared my monthly blog posts well in advance but right now, my mind is all over the place.  I am typing this completely worn out at 1:00 am CST in our hotel suite.  My family is resting after a long two weeks and I think tonightI will FINALLY get a long overdue 8 hours of sleep.  I look forward to coming back in September with a tribute to our family member and some great series but until then, enjoy these reposts and recent videos. 

This week I needed some encouragement so check out my recent video about the covering of God and check out the blog post by clicking this fantastic hyperlink.

God Has You Covered

I posted this status update on December 30, 2015 but the words still ring true today. Remember to remain obedient to God each day of every year and He will keep you covered.

“The story details are simply amazing but I will just hit you with the high points.

1) Quick transition can seem scary but when you’re obedient to the will of The Most High you shouldn’t be afraid to move swiftly. He’s got you covered.

2) Frustration in work is normal. Take a deep breath, take a break, and get back to doing what you’re supposed to. No labor, done in good faith is EVER in vain. He’s got you covered.

3) Keeping a prayer journal is an amazing tool. You have an actual log of every life battle and how God brought you out. Oh, and on the days you don’t think he is moving then just look in the mirror and realize that you’re still here. He’s got you covered.

4) As a wife I get the privilege to experience all our adult problems but not necessarily bear “ultimate responsibility” as my husband does. Sometimes life happens and it is super wacktastic. My favorite part of every day is letting him know that he is doing a great job. Our pastor, protector, and provider is awesome and I’m amazed at how he bears it all. Kevin is built for it and he has us covered. Kevin is obedient to The Most High God. HE HAS US COVERED!

Remain obedient in 2015 so you don’t lose your covering.”
