Coffee is Life = Coffee Creamer is Love | Throwback Thursday #Videos

Soo ... since September 2013 I have had a different blog called Jessica's Adventures in Cooking and Baking because at that point I had become a stay-at-home mother of almost two kids and though I did not enjoy cooking (still don't) yet I enjoy baking (still do) I felt the need to record some of my successes, failures, and just random food treat thoughts that I had along the way. Below is a video that I probably should have shared over on that blog instead of this website/blog but felt inclined to share it here anyways. Technically "my vision" for this video is not what this turned out to be ... actually I like how it turned out more. Yet I'll be the first to admit this is NOT my best video creation ... but I have had these sequence photos since 2016 when this video idea was created and after recently watching an article about how I should be the one to "publish my stuff not just finish it" here you go ...

DIY Kids Crafts / Gift Idea from Kids | From My Kids to You #DIYcrafts

Are you ready for your children to give out gifts for your relatives?

Truly ... every year I always feel like I am never ready. But in this post I have one gift idea for your children to give out to a relative, friend, or teacher!

It is garden pots!

I'll admit it isn't an original idea as I got it from my cousin around 2015 when my daughter was getting into school and needing to find a creative yet cheap idea for teachers gifts. And this is what my cousin (who has four kids) said she had all of her kids do every year for their teachers as "goodbye" gifts. Yet this is my take on it ...

Page Turning Products / #Candle Company Unboxing & Review | @LifeIsAPageTurn

My friend India of Life Is A Page Turner has a candle company called Page Turning Products / Page Turning Candle Co.. Recently (technically in July 2020) I purchased some of her candles ... this is my unboxing and reaction video of getting those candles. YAY!! Check out India's candles, India's IGs, MY video, and MY promo photos of the candles!

That all being said I want it stated that this is not a sponsored video. Though I am a huge fan of my friend, I did purchase these candles and all of the reviews within my video are my own. Enjoy!

Day 11 - Love is all around ~ 25 Days of Christmas from @fromjesstoyouVA | #Bloggerstribe #Blogmas

Welcome to Jess' 25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 11

11
Just two weeks till Christmas---to feel nice and snug, get your family together in a merry group hug!
I am a photographer. I was born with a camera in my face and grew up being acquainted with always having a camera in my hand (this was in the late 80's to early 90's childhood ... way before cellphones with cameras were a thing). Therefore, YES I do have TONS of photos of my own children posing. However, I do my best to keep their faces off my public social media accounts. So the only photo I have of them snuggling / hugging without showing their faces (without trying to wrangle them to pose right now -- sorry I just didn't have the time) is the photo below that I had posted on my Instagram acct about three and a half years ago. 😍 But it is one of my faves of them together. ENJOY!

Day 2 - Elves on the shelves have arrived! ~ 25 Days of Christmas from @fromjesstoyouVA | #Bloggerstribe #Blogmas #BookBlogger

Welcome to Jess' 25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 2

Well I had soo many plans today ... but it is/was Cyber Monday so I did last minute online shopping, then I found out that an Christmas present order that had arrived was wrong so I had to fix it (it took them 2 hours), then I dealt with my kids and stuff for my clients that I do VA work for .... but what really through me off was finding out early this morning that my head cold has gotten worse. 😷 I'm coughing up "crud" and will definitely be going to see my doctor tomorrow since the sudafed I've been taking hasn't been working. 😝 Thankfully I don't have a fever. YAY! πŸ‘

Anywho ... one major event was that ...
