#2 Oh Deer: 2017 Year End Review
Welcome to the second post in the Oh Deer Blog Series here at Createyou86. Can you believe it is New Years Eve 2017 already? I can't!
This year was kind of a benchmark for me. Come the first week of January 2018 i will have been at my day job for two years which is pretty awesome. My day job is something that i love to do, but is not an endgame for me.
Another big event came in September which was this blog turning three. This is a huge accomplishment for me, and something i love doing even though i have slowed down a bit because of work, and family things that have come up. You can check out that post HERE .
This year i managed to use Sew Much Crafting personal inserts for the entire year which i loved. The quality really is great, but i wanted to try something different for 2018 in my personal ring planners. That's right i said planners.
You may or may not know that i recently started a podcast which is available on the ANCHOR APP as well as APPLE PODCASTS, FOR FREE!!!!!!! and anywhere else that podcasts are available. The Createyou86 Podcast is a place for me to talk about planning, and for you as listeners to be able to call in with comments, questions, and all things planner talk. The Anchor App available on Itunes, and Google Play makes interacting even easier.
Lets talk a little bit about planners. My planners of choice in 2017 were my Gold Personal Special Edition Filofax, and my Carpe Diem Dark Blossoms Personal Planner. I have used quite a few travelers notebooks for blogging, and different series ideas i have for the blog as i am starting to build quite the collection. I will continue to use ring planners for personal weekly planning, and a mini Recollections spiral planner for my podcast planner (which is already planned out through March!).
I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this year end review from Createyou86, and that you will stick around in 2018 to see new monthly blog series', and what new goals i have in store for the new year.
Happy New Year From Createyou86
#1 Oh Deer: December Favorites
Welcome to the first post (I know i'm late!!) in the Oh Deer December Blog Series here at Createyou86. December is one of my favorite times of year, and i am excited to share with all of you some of my favorite things about the holiday season. This post differs from last years post because its isn't about items that i would buy, but more about the meaning of the season for me. I hope that i can inspire some holiday spirit in you this year! Scroll to see each item that gets me in the holiday spirit!
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and the beginning of this blog series. I can't wait to bring you more fun December posts.
Let me know in the comments below. What is your favorite holiday scent?
Welcome to another product review here at Createyou86. Can you believe that there are only twelve days until Christmas? What could be a better time than this to talk about Let The Little Children Come gospel tracts, and evangelism tools and resources. I was provided with a free sample pack of items from Flyby Promotions in exchange for an honest product review.
These products are great for most major Christian holidays. It is the hope that these tools, and resources help in conveying the powerful gospel message to children. The gospel tracts are all specially designed to capture and hold the attention of children, while not distracting from the core message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
As a current, and long time childcare professional I have also taught bible study for young children, and have done several VBS camps. These tracts are colorful, and exciting to young hands, and eyes, but with the young children that these are intended for it is very important to supervise very carefully in the use of the products as there are some very small items which can be swallowed. Aside from that these products are great, and very informative for the young child. Any child would look forward to receiving these products, and being able to share them with friends, and family.
If you feel that these products may be useful for your church or organization you can purchase the sample pack HERE
Below are a few photos of items that come in the sample pack.
Welcome to the third post in the Falling Into Fall Blog Series here at Createyou86. Today is another product to review that i received from Flyby Promotions for free in exchange for an honest review. Now that the holidays are only 20 days away there is a mad rush to find just the right present for that special someone. This devotional has been created to cater specifically to young women. Each day features an easy-to-read, relevant devotion paired with a scripture verse, and journaling space to help readers reflect on the days message. The book tackles tough topics that girls face, from bullying, and social media to friendships and dating, all the while showing readers how infinitely precious they are in God's sight.
The book is hardcover, and retails for $14.99 (ages 13+)

I highly recommend this book because it is great for morning pages, and i look forward to sharing it with my neice who just turned fifteen.
