Amy Adele Calling Cards Review!


I have been looking for some totally adorable calling cards to call my own. After checking out some other pages, I was really happy to run across Amy Adele. Her calling cards are printed on 100% recycled paper, and she even packs them in Eco-friendly peanuts made from 100% cornstarch. The kids even tested them to make sure they actually disintegrated under water! They did! ONE child even went so far as to eat one to prove it was safe… I don’t recommend this testing to other parents!

I didn’t get pictures of the peanut testing. Sorry.

I am very happy with my personalized calling cards. They look very professional, and don’t state on the back how cheaply I got them for. A major drawback for me on other sites. I also like the fact they are slightly smaller then business cards and come with envelopes. They are great to pop in a giveaway prize package, or to pass out as needed.

It was also very easy to personalize my cards. There are so many designs to chose from that it took me a awhile! I finally settled on this cute monkey print called Two Monkeys Calling Card.

SO, if you one the lookout for some totally adorable Personalized Calling Cards, or birthday invites, or stationary, or labels, check out Amy Adele.com… you won’t regret it!

Be Blessed…


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


The Willow Store – Wool Dryer Ball Review! CLOSED!!!


I LOVE my dryer balls…. I have two kinds. One that I reviewed MONTHS ago, and they are HUGE. Which is nice in some ways. They don’t get lost in the laundry. They are too big for the dog to eat. But still… they are big. So, I was very happy when I received these cute little dryer balls from the Willow Store.  They are small, unscented, and perfectly colored. Those of you that know me, know that I LOVE Mexico. I spent as much time there as I could as a teenager, working in our church’s orphanage. I was even on staff for a summer. I would love to go back. But in the meantime, every time I toss a load into my dryer and see the colors of the Mexican flag, I am reminded to pray for those beautiful children there. Here is what I received for review:

Dryer balls are great for a few reasons. One, they reduce the amount of time it takes for your clothes to dry, saving energy, which saves you money! Two, they work like dryer sheets, so your clothes come out static and wrinkle free. 3. They don’t contain the chemicals that dryer sheets are soaked in to do these same things!

You can get scented dryer balls if you want your clothes to smell like something. Every time I get a scent I like though, someone else always complains about how their clothing smells. 😮 Cause that’s just life…. So I choose  unscented for the most part. I am about to tell those certain someones to suck it up though, because I really want to test out a re-scenting kit 😮

My kids love the dryer balls too, and won’t start the dryer unless every one of my 5 dryer balls are in it! Even Putter’s knows how many are supposed to  be there, and if one is missing she says UH-OH and goes searching! I love that they love those little things that make our house greener and safer for them! Our clothes come out soft, wrinkle, static and chemical FREE! What more could you ask for! And these things work for FOREVER!! No need to buy a new box of dryer sheets every other week!


The Willow Store also manufactures and sells cloth diapers, training pants, mama cloth, laundry nuts, a postpartum kit and much more!
