Join Giving Artfully Kids to Receive Crafting-based Service Projects

This is a long overdue post for art craft project that we sign-up last summer. We have tried curated book subscription box before because I love the idea of saving time to find age appropriate books to read and engaging activities to do.


As I am looking for another curated activity to try, I came across Giving Artfully Kids, an enrichment program where kids were helping others and spreading kindness through crafting-based service projects. The membership includes complete lesson plans, materials list, and other online resources to help start a home or community based program.

Sock Snowman Project

You can choose from Premium or Basic  membership level. I signed up for Premium level membership that gives me access for the Lesson Plans that we can follow for pre-made service learning experience.

Projects are for 3 different age levels:
  • 3-6 years old
  • 6-9 years old
  • 9-12 years old
Each lesson plan has 4 components:
  1. Opening Activities
  2. Book/ Video Discussion and Social Issue Introduction
  3. Crafting project directions
  4. Reflection Questions
We have done several craft projects before, I discover that doing so can help boost my child's confidence and serves as our bonding time together.  My 10 year old enjoyed our first craft project and shows compassion when asked what to do in a certain situation on the video that we watched.

Compared to my curated subscription box, this one's also saves my time of finding activities to do. All I need to do is follow the instructions and provide the materials needed. There were also online resources provided that we can watch or read. So yes, instead of spending more time of research, I can have a full month of activities all lined up.

Although I personally like how a subscription box provide the books and craft materials that we need, what I love most about the Giving Artfully Kids program is that it is not only empowers my child but also share and provide a difference through crafting-based service projects.

How? The activities are focused on importance of giving and being charitable towards others. Plus, we can explore some of the social issues that we can discuss for in-depth understanding.

Turn Your Receipts into Cash with SnapCart!

Getting discounts and earning points for every grocery shopping trip is a good way to help lessen the growing expenses. It may seem a tiny amount but considered an extra cash when adds up, agree?

I have been keeping my BDO rewards for a decade already and was surprised on how much points it can accumulate for less cash payment. I even got rewarded for answering surveys that pay real cash. I recently received my GCash card from Nielsen Consumer Mobile App Rewards where  they will wire my earnings (that's another story!).

You see?  I have been patiently participating with all these apps, surveys, and cash backs as my way of  saving. So, having been introduced to SnapCart  as my small way to earn real cash by snapping grocery receipts is another welcome opportunity! 


Turn your receipts into cash? Why not?!

Snapcart is a mobile application that gives shoppers cashback for scanning  receipts as  SnapCart can collect massive amount of purchase data, analyze and offer to brands on a real time basis with shopper rich information.

Here's how much you can earn:

Level Multiplier x Receipt Cashback = Cashback Total
  • More than 1,001.00 = 16.00 Php per receipt
  • More than  501.00 = 8.00 Php per receipt
  • More than 251.00 = 4.00 Php per receipt
  • More than 101.00 = 1.75 Php per receipt
  • More than 1.00 = 0.50 Php per receipt

What Type of Receipts does SnapCart accepts?




Make sure to follow these Tips and Tricks for faster receipt verification:
  • All parts of receipts are readable.
  • All parts of receipts are captured, use + button to snap long receipts.
  • Snapped receipts in a bright environment.
  • One receipt for 1 snap.
  • Snap receipt within the red box provided.
  • Receipt is in good condition, not crumpled nor torn.

You have to reached the minimum amount of 220 pesos to cash out. I had my first cash out thru my BDO account. It also have an option of using your earned cash in exchange of Load Credits or voucher but I haven't tried this yet.

You can also get coins that can be used to play Snaptastic. The more coins you collect, the bigger chances for you to play Snaptastic and win various prizes.

Snaptastic is all about having fun and playing games where customer engagement and loyalty is. Snaptastic is aimed as a platform for brands to further engage their customers in a unique and more rewarding way.


Hooray for my first Cash out! šŸ˜ƒ


I am currently on  Silver Level with 1.2 points multiplier, and 15 more weeks to go for Gold  next to Platinum Level which will give me the chance to earn twice the amount of cashback.

SnapCart is legit, so you better Snap before you throw away that grocery, medicine or  cosmetic receipts. Happy Snapping!

What you need to know about The Finery’s laser tattoo removal

Laser tattoo removal technology is effective and hurts less compared to the other methods of tattoo removals. The Finery’s laser tattoo removal process is simple and affordable. But there are still few things you should know to help you fully understand what to expect after the whole process. Since the finery removes tattoos with laser, you are assured of a clear skin after the treatment. But you should be prepared to go for at least four sessions.


The number of sessions required in order to completely remove the tattoo will depends on your age, skin tone and overall health condition. The type of ink used also plays a major role and will determine how long it will take for the tattoo to be completely removed. You should, therefore, be prepared to go for a couple of laser treatment sessions in order to remove the tattoo. 

According to Worcester laser tattoo removal, the success of a tattoo removal largely depends on whether they are professional tattoos or amateur tattoos. Professional tattoos are easier to remove. Finally, you should expect post-treatment symptoms that include blisters, swelling, pinpoint bleeding and redness among other symptoms. 

Schedule an appointment to know more about the finery tattoo removal and the ideal place for tattoo removal.

Mom's Guide To A Healthier And Longer Life

There is no good time for moms to get sick, but it’s not an impossible scenario—with most of their waking moments spent tending to their kids’ needs and often not caring about their own.

According to a study in Circulation, women who followed the five healthy lifestyle habits—exercising at least 30 minutes a day, having a healthy diet, not smoking, drinking in moderation, and maintaining a healthy weight—lived 14 years longer than those who don’t.


So, if you want to be with your kids for a decade longer, this mom's guide to a healthier and longer life can help you get there.

  1. Eat healthily
May it be the kids’ leftovers or just a conscious effort to serve the family the same dish, mommies end up eating what the kids are also having. If you’re not routinely serving the healthier kind to your kids, chances are, you’re wreaking havoc to your diet.

Don’t copy your kids’ diet and stick with eating three healthy meals a day and practicing portion control. Instead of calories, pack in more protein to your diet by having food such as oatmeal, fish, broccoli, eggs, chicken breast, and almonds to name a few.

  1. Sleep early
Put your kids to bed early so that you’d also get to sleep early, or at least have enough sleep at night.
Inadequate sleep time results in lack of energy and affects your health negatively. Take every chance you get to take a nap during the day, too.

  1. Get moving
You don’t have to plan out a fitness regime and spend hours in the gym (because no mommy has time for that)—simply sharing an activity with your kids can be enough.

As often as you can, play with them. It not only burns off the calories and motivates you to be active, but it’s also a good bonding time.

If you do want to exercise, something as simple as walking can be beneficial. A yoga or dance class or a playing a sport that you like is good, too.

Know what you want to do to stay active and keep at it.

  1. Get social
And no, this doesn’t mean social media. Nothing can ever replace the actual conversation you can have with your friends in person. In fact, now that you’re a mother, you should try to minimize your use of social media. It takes too much time and is often not a productive activity.

If you need to get outside to be social, then so be it. It’s a lot better than keeping to yourself at home all day because the fresh air outside is good for your overall health. Plus, you’d get to meet people and parents like you who are more understanding of what you’re going through as a mother.

  1. Find inner peace
As much as mothers love their child, it’s no surprise that her day can get a little too rowdy and messy with them around. Sometimes, it can put them over the edge or even make them feel like they're not a good parent.

That’s why it’s important for moms to stay calm and find their inner peace. This can be done through a few changes of habits and actions. Something as simple as playing your favorite music while doing the chores can make routines more enjoyable.  

Alone time is necessary, too, especially since you’re now always surrounded by people who constantly need your attention. Create a schedule that allows you to have your me time.

  1. Get a life insurance policy with health and wellness benefits
As a mother, you’d want to protect your children for as long as you can. One way to do this is to get a life insurance policy that will cover your beneficiaries in case anything happens to you.

To make the most out of your insurance, get one that offers you rewards for making healthy choices.

Moms need to take care of themselves to have a long, happy life. The healthier and happier they are, the more time they have to look after their kids—and even fulfill their personal goals in life.
