The Amateur Naturalist - Review and Giveaway!



The Amateur Naturalist  has terrarium kits that are completely cool!! All materials you need are included!  It is so easy and fun, and now we have a great science project that can be displayed in the school room! 

We received the blue weevil bug.  And, I must say, this completely exceeded my expectations, down to how it was packaged!  Take a look!! ---->


So excited to unwrap it!!

All directions were very clear and the pictures were bright! Included was also a fact sheet about our bug!

 Look at our blue weevil!

The finished project that the kids completed!!


What kid wouldn't love one of these?? These are amazing for a homeschool science class, a gift for a teacher, or a birthday party!! I could totally see the kids having a blast putting these together at a party & being able to take the finished project home! 

There are several different options available (of which we will be adding to our collection!!)



Take a look at this gorgeous butterfly! How cool would these be to be given out as favors at an outdoor wedding??



Or how about this Horned Beetle!!!  Amazing!

Two Hearts Smiling Trading Post - Giveaway Time!



I love this Etsy shop!  Natural and herbal products are wonderful, and I for one, am all for these types of products vs. some of the more chemical laden things that go into our bodies! 

Check this Jewelweed Liniment! We have a serious problem with mosquitoes, bees, and other such buzzy little insects. This is a great little bottle to have on hand to save yourself (and the ones you love) from the itch and ouch of bites and stings!


Two Hearts Smiling also offers beautiful Native American Earrings.  I am loving the gorgeous turtle earrings




Doesn't a nice glass of Cat Nap Tea sound just wonderful for a few minutes of down time?! This sounds absolutely delicious with it's blends of Chamomile Flower, Lemon Balm Leaf, & Catnip Leaf!! What a great way to relax!



Now onto the AMAZING! giveaway that Two Hearts Smiling Trading Post is generously giving away!

It's a pain relief package!!!

Can't you just imagine how nice this would be??!!

Included in this amazing gift will be  4oz of Aches-Be-Gone massage oil,  Aches-Be-Gone tea, Rest Your Head tea and Cat Nap tea!!  This is such a great prize to make anyone feel better!

Congratulations to #17 Monique!
