My Wonderful Walls Giveaway!

Well folks, Jim, the kids and I just got back from Warsaw, Poland from a wonderful and uplifting church conference this weekend.  So, that means I am a bit behind in posting a blog so instead I am giving you and great opportunity to learn about a great product and even have to the chance win a room maker with it.  I want to tell you about My Wonderful Walls! They offer imaginative wall stickers, wall stencils and canvas wall murals for kids’ room and baby nurseries. It’s all created and manufactured in the USA too!

About My Wonderful Walls: My Wonderful Wallsis a modern day Mom & Pop online retail business operated by Michael and Stephanie Goins. The idea for the company was born after Michael hand-painted a mural in their older son’s new room. We knew that other parents would really enjoy doing this, but most lack the artistic training and/or confidence. So we decided to design products that would allow all parents (even the artistically challenged) to create wall murals themselves. We formed My Wonderful Walls in 2008 with a mere four wall stencil kits, and now we carry hundreds of popular product and ship all over the word. Each and every one of our products is designed and manufactured with tender loving care in the USA in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee.

My Wonderful Walls Review:

Heather from Full Price? Never!got a chance to review the wall stickers for her toddlers room! Here are her thoughts: “I am not a creative person, I wish I was but I’ve come to terms with it. I was so excited to try the wall stickers because even someone like me that lacks artistic skills can use them with terrific results! I’m always looking at my daughters boring closet doors and trying to think of someway to make them more fun for her… I finally found the answer! The stickers were very easy to use and absolutely adorable! The toddler agrees! The only problem I had was choosing from all of the themes they offer… farm, flower garden, transportation, jungle, dinosaur, princess, bugs, forest, fairy, cats & dogs, outer space, pirate, owls, dragon, monsters, circus, bugs, ocean, polka dot, clouds and more!”

Valentine’s Party Time!

I know Valentines was almost a week ago but on Saturday at our church we had a Valentine’s Party for the adults.  It was small but the nice thing about small parties you really get to have great conversations.   BUT the bad thing about small parties is there is LOTS of food leftover.  Needless to say, my American cupcakes were a hit with the Polish but then all the food was a hit because they were not used to American cooking.  I cooked ham in my crock-pots with a bit of apple juice (which is not eaten over here very often) and another American who is serving a mission for our church here cooked funeral potato’s and corn. Then we played picture Valentine Bingo so there wouldn’t be a language barrier (remember we don’t speak any real Polish yet!), made love coupons, and then played the Newlywed game. If you have never seen the TV version (70’s & early 80’s) of this game you need to Youtube is it is hilarious to watch and even better to play with friends.  Yes I got the question wrong of what my husband’s favorite food was.  I said pierogi’s when I should have said cheesecake (which is the first word he learned in Polish).   But I did know where his dream vacation would be….Australia!   It was a great night to send it with our new Polish family that has so graciously welcomed us with open arms to make us feel at home.

The next party I need to plan for church is the Easter party.   So what American traditions should I bring to it?

Want to go for a walk?

So yesterday I had to drop off my oldest daughter at our church for our youth seminary program.  My two youngest are out of school for 2 weeks for winter break, so instead of hanging out at the church we went for nice hour walk.  Well here are a few pictures of what it looks like within 2 blocks of our church in downtown Bydgoszcz.

Now can you all see why I am falling in love with

Bydgoszcz, Poland?
