5 Unique End of Year Teacher Gifts


That time of year is approaching again. The end of the school year. It's always nice to show how much you appreciate the hard work, dedication and not to mention patience of your child teachers. Here is a great list of unique gifts your favorite teacher will definitely cherish. All these gifts are perfect and most under $10... so hard to choose!

1.  Fabric Teacher Quote Key Chain

A perfect Teacher gift. This Teacher key fob features the quote "Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world." by Masala Yousafzal

2.  Personalized Teacher Pencils 

What better way to thank your Number 1 teacher than with a personalized No. 2 pencil!
Each pencil is hand cut, painted and distressed. I add the custom name to the pencil to finish it off.


3.  Adorable Teacher Elastic Hair Ties

Perfect gift for your child's teacher for Teacher Appreciation Day or just because!! Comes with 3 hair ties, one chalkboard ABC's, one crayon, and one ruler. 

4. Teacher Wish Bracelet

Little Wishes are a beautiful way to give someone you care for a wish. All they have to do is make a wish and then tie the cord around their wrist. When the cord finally wears down and breaks the wish is released and will come true - so they say!

5.  Personalized Pencil Holder



This pencil holder is made from a terra cotta pot. The pot base is painted with a black paint, then the rim is painted in a yellow. The lines, numbers and words are hand painted. Then a vinyl flower is attached.

Why You Need to Ditch Your Dish Sponge


We’ve all been there. Walking up to the kitchen sink, dreading what we’ll find. Ugh, it’s there again, a huge pile of dirty dishes. Then you see it, you know what I’m talking about, and you see the dreaded, smelly, shredded and dingy looking sponge


You don’t even want to pick it up, you contemplate using gloves but don’t want to waste time finding them and putting them on. You wonder if your dishes are even getting clean. Then it happens, you pick up the sponge and it’s cold and still wet from the last time you washed the dishes… is it filled with bacteria, fungus, germs or food particles. The decision is made, you toss the sponge and grab a freshly wrapped one and start the washing process all over again. How many sponges did you go through this week? Month? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a quick drying, easy to care for reusable product to clean your dishes.

Well look no more because it is here. The Balanced Lion has made a 100% polyester dish scrubby that will solve all of your dish washing woes. The polyester yarn used to make the dish scrubbies dries quicker than regular cellulose sponges, other acrylic yarns and regular dish clothes. This means no more cold, wet, smelly sponge and prevents bacteria from building up. The unique texture is gentle on dishes, pot and pans, ceramics, Teflon, but tough enough to clean thoroughly. The bright colors and texture will make dish washing a pleasant experience. No more dreading the kitchen sink. This dish scrubby is so amazing that you can throw it right in the top rack of your dishwasher to clean, or run it through your washing machine on a warm gentle cycle. You can let the scrubby air dry or throw in the dryer on low heat. The amazing thing about this dish scrubby is that it can also be used to exfoliate your skin (I would recommend buying a second to use for body exfoliation).






 So toss your sponge for good… stop wasting money from constantly purchasing sponges and head over to The Balanced Lion to get your very own dish scrubby now.

ROUXBE Online Cooking Course Giveaway

Giveaway details below:

I never imagined how important cooking was going to be in my life until our second child was born with multiple life threatening food allergies (8 foods in total). Before his diagnosis I was an average home cook, with one son who was fairly picky. We would eat out on occasion and didn't make everything from scratch. Once we learned of our sons food allergies all of this changed... we needed to be able to prepare all of his meals at home... he is 4 now and has never eaten a meal that wasn't from our kitchen. It was difficult at first learning how to cook and bake without using things like wheat and eggs. There was no more buying frozen waffles or chicken nuggets or jarred pasta sauce. Everything was going to have to be made from scratch. Over the years we have found a few safe convince foods for him but mostly we still make all of his food for him.

During this time I found an online cooking school called RouxBe that was very helpful. RouxBe delivers technique-focused culinary instruction over the internet, to any cook that wants to improve their cooking skills and health. I was very impressed with the cooking courses. They had the same feel as any online college course, but with more visuals and hands on learning. I was able to learn proper techniques and how to make some really delicious meals. I was so impressed that I am going to be GIVING AWAY ONE FREE ROUXBE ONLINE COOKING COURSE.
