Good / Great News

I finally had a chance to create a new blog for my reviews - YEAH!! For those of you that are interested in reading my reviews, you can read them at Judylp's Product Reviews

The only reviews that will be posted on this blog in the future will be reviews that are relevant. Items that relate to scrapbooking, rubberstamping, arts & crafts, etc.

I will start posting new cut files within a week or so (by September 25th).

I will also start sharing some of my scrapbook pages, rubber-stamped cards, and some of my other art projects. I realized that I didn't share the photos of the rest of my remodel project, so I will be sharing those as well. Basically, I plan to make the blog more personal rather than just a place to share cut files

REVIEW – Kashmir Lavender Essential Oil

I have only recently discovered essential oils, and lavender oil was the first one I bought. I have found that different brands of oils can be different strengths. So far, this brand has the strongest scent in the brands I have tried. A good scent is what you want for the best results in aromatherapy.

The Kashmir Lavender Essential Oil is packaged with a regular lid and a dropper lid. You just replace the regular lid with the dropper lid and you can easily get the number of drops of the oil you want.

I use it in a diffuser in my bedroom quite often. I have found that if I use it all day and all night long, not only do I sleep better, but my cat is a lot calmer. A calm cat makes a less fussy cat.

REVIEW – Premium Crystal Deodorant by Crystalline Salts

Truth time, I don’t wear deodorant all the time, never have. I believe that we sweat for a reason and that we shouldn’t prevent our bodies from sweating – it’s natural to sweat. Yes, sweat smells, but again, that is a natural occurring thing.

That being said, I do use deodorant when I will be around a lot of people at a social event or with people that would find smells offensive.

I have used many “unscented” and “no scent” deodorants in the past and every one of them had some sort of scent. I am allergic to most scented items (most perfumes gave me slight allergic reactions).

I tried the Premium Crystal Deodorant by Crystalline Salts just before going out to a casino – figuring that if it didn’t work, it wouldn’t be too much of as issue. When I came back home, I found that neither me or my clothes had an odor. That was pro #1.

Next I tried it when I went on a date. At first I was really was worried that I would start smelling, but figured that if my date was offended then he wasn’t the right person anyway. The result at the end of the night – no sticky me and no stinky clothes – pro #2.

Would I use this all the time, no because of my beliefs (stated above). Would I use it at times when I would have used regular deodorant in the past – yes.

REVIEW – Zento Deals Soft Stretchable Sheepskin White Steering Wheel Cover Protector

With the average temperature during the summer of 90 – 95 degrees and the need to park my car in the sun all day, the steering wheel got too hot to use. I would have to put winter gloves on to drive until the air conditioning cooled down the steering wheel.

I decided I needed a steering wheel cover so I purchased the Zento Deals Soft Stretchable Sheepskin White Steering Wheel Cover Protector. The cover is very soft & fluffy and I have found when I get stressed at other drivers, I start to pet it and that helps me to calm down. Sort of like petting your dog or cat, it calms your soul.

The nap is very thick and depending on your car & dashboard/gauges you might need to rise or lower your steering wheel to see the gauges. In my car I needed to raise the steering wheel a little (about ½ inch) to see the gauges.

Now, when I get in the car, no matter what the temperature is, the steering wheel if comfortable to touch. No more burning hands in the summer or freezing hands in the winter.

REVIEW – HealthyWiser Nail Care System


I have thin nails and I chip & break my nails all the time. I try to do the correct thing and file the edges in only one direction (rather than back & forth) I still would crack my nails.

When I tried the HealthyWiser Nail Care System the edges of my nails were very smooth. Because my nails are so thin, I didn’t feel comfortable using the buffer & polisher by myself. My son is a manicurist, so I had him use the buffer & polisher on my nails.

He liked the fact that if he pressed down too hard, the device stopped to prevent damage to the nails. He really liked that feature (I did too).

I was thrilled with the end result - nice shiny nails without nail polish!

REVIEW – Wood Comb All Natural Handmade from Rugged Kings Barber Co

When I saw this comb, I thought my son would love it. As soon as I handed it to him, he brushed his brushed his beard and stated that it worked a lot better than the hair brush he was using.

A few days later he told me that he really liked using the comb after his shower because he wasn’t pulling on his beard hair at all. He said for that reason alone that he was glad I got the Wood Comb All Natural Handmade from Rugged Kings Barber Company for him to use.

REVIEW – EBOOK - From the Beginning: The Old World by Timna Kurtz

I didn’t know if I would enjoy a book that is about the end of our word as we know it and the start of a new world. But, I am glad that I gave this book a chance.

The main character, Grace, is a strong woman who goes exploring, finds a cave with a magic pool that changes her into a leader & gives her powers to see the past visions of the prophecy that had come true. Grace and her tribe must learn to make their way in this new world, trying to learn from the mistakes in the past.

The book was a fast read and kept me awake past my bedtime because I wanted to find out what was going to happen next.

REVIEW – Roscoe Learning - Magnetic Numbers and Counters Math Skills Set

I have a grandchild who just started kindergarten and another just starting pre-school. I though the Roscoe Learning - Magnetic Numbers and Counters Math Skills Set would be a great gift for them.

Right now they are counting how many numbers they have, and tell me that they will start counting the shapes after they are done. Right now, they are having a lot of fun just playing with the pieces, but I know that they will also enjoy learning math in the near future.

I am glad that there is an instructional guide included so I can help them on the path to learning math. I think these will also help them when they start having simple math homework by being able to use the counters if they are having problems finding the answers.

I really like that the numbers & counters are completely magnetic rather than just having little magnets that are glued in like most sets. I like that they are different colors and that there are different counting shapes as well.

REVIEW – "Too Tough" Duck Yellow Hooded Towel from Muchas Smooches Baby Goods

I bought this for my grandchildren, and from the start they loved it. In fact, I will have to buy another one so they don’t argue over the towel. The towel is very absorbent and at the same time, light weight. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the towel absorbs water.

One suggestion I have is to wash the towel before the first use – when I did, the towel was softer and I felt better using it.

REVIEW – Cable Clips, SCYA Desktop Cord Management

In the past, I was constantly having to pick up the power cables for my phone, tables & e-reader off the floor. So, I put them in a drawer, where they would get tangled. The solution was the Cable Clips, SCYA Desktop Cord Organizer.

While I like the concept of the cord organizer, in use it has problems. The magnetic base is not powerful enough. My cords will fall off the base at the smallish bump. I have tried the base on the fall, on the top of my desk, and on the side of my desk, and in all three locations, if the cord was lightly bumped, it fell off the base.

Luckily, I have a magnetic white board near my desk, so I am using the magnetic buckles and am hanging the cords on the white board. Not the perfect solution, but for now it works.

I have two suggestions for this product. Use stronger magnets in both the magnetic buckles & base and have different version of the organizer. For me, I needed 3 buckles that would fit my round cords and didn’t need the buckle for the flat cord. Oh, color coding the different buckles would help as well.
