Name Stories personalized name print

Last week we tore up our tweens game room and to reorganize that room it meant using his bedroom for extra storage. We are distance learning to start the school year in most of Wa. state so we needed to create him a home learning space. He is 12 and heading into the 7th grade so we did our final sweep of toys and little boy ‘stuff’ – he wants sports and gaming. I would love to hold onto the memories and toys and prints that meant so much to him at different times in his life, now he says, “Mom. Just toss it”.

Aside from basketballs and gaming themes I hung my piece of special, his Name Stories personalized name print so that he remembers exactly who he is and meant to be by his name. Anthony – it means Son of Hercules, strong, independent, wise. A strong Italian name connecting him to his genealogy and defining his spirit. This is a keeper and will stay with him on a wall forever.

Name prints

These name prints are available at Name Stories and I was even able to personalize it by adding the top line, Our Amazing Son…Anthony. I chose the white on red as red is his favorite color. His personalized name print came wrapped well and undamaged, ready for a frame.

Whether for baby’s room or to add something special to your teen’s space, this personalized name print will remind them of the meaning of their name. When we are rearranging the home and our lives around distance learning or perhaps you will switch to homeschooling to keep social distancing, this can be a special personalized name print to hang in this space.

At a time of new normals and a huge shift in schooling or even for the teen heading to College on top of a virus which adds worry, perhaps this gentle reminder to ground them in the meaning of their name and who they stand for is needed more than ever. Name Stories has your child’s name and meaning ready to print and send. Customize your child’s personalized name print today at NameStories.com

Head back to school with the naturally anti-viral copper H2O Water Bottle

Head back to school with the naturally anti-viral copper H2O Water Bottle

It’s a water bottle, but it’s copper. This only means one thing – tamra jal (aka: water stored in a copper vessel). You never want to infuse your water with bad chemicals found in standard plastics or some metals, but anti-viral copper has great health benefits for you and the environment. I am excited to share my new Copper H2O bottle.

When water is contained in copper it will become natural alkaline water, which helps balance your body’s pH levels. The anti-bacterial powers of copper becomes a great anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents aging, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain. Why wouldn’t you want ice cold water from a copper water bottle?

By using these well-designed, anti-viral copper bottles from Copper H20 we cut down on plastic waste that traditional water bottles contribute to. You can ensure that these copper water bottles are made of pure copper (not all brands are actually pure copper). Leak free and the better way to store your water overnight for natural alkaline water by morning, get your Copper H2O water bottle today.

College Care Packages: Succulents Subscription Boxes

College Care Packages: Succulents Subscription Boxes

I remember the day we drove our son to College for the first time. It is exciting and there was so much planning that built up to that day, but again it is a bittersweet time as well. I went crazy on care packages. I found a local baker who would deliver cupcakes for special occasions, I would order pizza to his dorm, mail snack and med packs. College care packages are a fantastic tether with your child away at school.

If you have a daughter heading off to school or even need a care package for someone ill or going through a change the Succulents Subscription Boxes are so well done and my favorite way to receive the succulents is in their clay pots so they are ready for new spots in my home right away.

I was sent the 4-pack of succulents this month with clay pots. They came wrapped very well, none were damaged. Then I got to walk around my home and cheer up a few spaces that needed a small plant as company. My dining table got a pot (above is my favorite: Baby Necklace, a Crassula) and so did my mantle (a Dancing Bones and Moonglow).

Can you imagine being away in your first place or dorm and each month a new small succulent arrives to add some fresh decor to your space? This is why I think of students who are in need of fun college care packages to look forward too.

I also think that make great gifts to send to a new Mom or as a housewarming gift – new homes and new babies are a lot of work and succulents are so easy to care for. I think every hanging basket and plant IO was given at my house warming died in days because I set it down and was just too busy and overwhelmed with unpacking to give them care at that time.
