Monday’s Musings #149 & 8 Reasons I Love the Ultimate DIY Bundle

Last week, I introduced to you the latest Ultimate Bundle: The Ultimate DIY Bundle. If you missed that post, you can find it HERE. Today, I want to share with you MY 8 reasons for loving the DIY bundle. Let’s get to it!

Today is the last day to purchase this awesome bundle. DO you have yours yet? Stop by and read my 8 reasons for loving this bundle. The Ultimate DIY Bundle | What Joy Is Mine

My first 5 reasons for liking this bundle so much are:

1. Say NO to Auto by Kristen Duke: This short eBook walks you through 3 basic steps to show you how to shoot in manual mode. Once you learn how to shoot in manual mode, you won’t look back at auto mode ever again. I plan to have my daughter, who is learning about photography, read this one for school. ($10 value)

2. A Beginner’s Guide to Homemade Personal Care Products: This book provides 30 easy-to-follow recipes for some of your most-used personal care items. I am all about learning to make our toiletries at home. From deodorant to shaving cream to sugar scrubs, its found in this book. ($10.00 value)

3. Pioneering Today: A Homemade Christmas: With over 36 recipes, homemade gift ideas, and decor tutorials, you’ll experience a simple Christmas with the joy the season offers. I can’t wait to dig into this book with Christmas being one of my favorite celebrations. ($2.99 value)

4. Sew A Skirt: This book is designed for the beginner sewer who wants to learn to sew a custom-fitted skirt. It is a step by step process using your measurements. Now, this is one book I will definitely be putting to use. I love to wear skirts so I’m excited about this book being in the bundle. ($10.00 value)

5. DIY Organic Beauty Products: This book shares recipes for your own beauty products like shampoo and body sprays. More ideas to making our toiletries at home. ($24.95)

My last 3 reasons are:

The Ultimate DIY Bundle | What Joy Is Mine

6. 101 Days of Christmas:  This eBook includes 101 simple ideas and tutorials, plus bonus sections with even more ways to make Christmas meaningful for your family! Again, another book with ideas to make Christmas warm and welcoming. ($4.99 value)

7. Simply Canning:  This book gives step by step lessons on important safety information for both pressure canning and water bath canning. You will learn how to can tomatoes, green beans, meat, and fruit. Then have fun and create jam and jelly, marmalade, and fruit butters to stock your own pantry and give as gifts. I love to can so this book is one I know I will be reading. ($12.99 value)

8. ShootFlyShoot (Photography 101): This ecourse is a video training course designed for anyone who wants to learn how to shoot in manual mode and includes lessons from expert photographers. It’s made up of 11 separate video classes and is almost three hours in length. Best part is your access never expires so you can revisit those videos you want as many times as you want. So go ahead and improve your photography! ($67 value)

(Read more about the books included.)

So these are my 8 reasons for loving the Ultimate DIY Bundle and I am looking forward to reading each book as well as viewing the photography videos. If I were to purchase all 8 of these books, I would fork out over $140!! (Not in my wallet.) The photography video series is $67 by itself….YET this DIY bundle is only $34.95! I would say that’s a bargain. And it comes with 76 eBooks and eCourse altogether. If you haven’t had a chance to view all it offers, I hope you take the time to look it over. I know you will find more than one eBook/eCourse that you will like making this bundle so worth the purchase.

Oh, and one more thing I think is great about this bundle is the FREE bonuses with one that I particularly am excited about. From Craftsy.com, you get to choose ONE FREE online class valued up to $71! Choices are Artisan Bread Making, The Perfect Cupcake, Gorgeous Garden Design, Scrapbooking Style Clean & Simple, Basics of Digital Photography, Sewing Custom Curtains/Draperies and Essential Techniques Every Knitter Should Know to name a few. There are more available. Remember today is the last day to get your hands on one. Lastly, thank you for purchasing through us.

Monday’s Musings #148 & Winter Rest

Winter Rest | What Joy Is Mine

Winter is one of my favorite seasons. I like the cooler temps, snow and the quiet it brings. I’ve always thought of winter as a time of rest and renewal spiritually speaking. A time to reflect on where I am in my walk, what I need to work on and what I have gained in the year past. It’s always good evaluate your faith walk. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith.” (2 Corinthians 13:5) Ask the Lord to help you in the areas you need growth in. Maybe that’s memorizing scripture or having a more set time to meet with Him or putting into practice what you’re learning or developing a deeper prayer life. Also, its a good time to thank Him and praise Him for how much you have grown to date. I know we are all works in progress but God is faithful to teach us so our walk with Him is always moving forward even when we take a step backward.

The season of winter also signals a time of rest. Rest in Him. Maybe you’ve had a tough year last year and now you can finally breathe. Rest in Him. Maybe this year has already thrown you a challenge. Rest in Him. Just as nature goes to sleep at winter time, so I think we can learn from it to rest our souls in the One who comforts us and carries our burdens. Winter is a good time to seek Him for direction concerning your faith and to find respite in His arms. And he said, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.‘ ” (Exodus 33:14)

If winter is a difficult season for you, don’t let it be. Choose to joyfully welcome it as a season of rest and renewal. Take advantage of this time and rest in the Lord.

So, what encouraging post do you have to share this week?

Looking Ahead | What Joy Is Mine

Can you believe we are about to embark on a new year? 2015 is just around the corner. When a new year approaches, it seems to roll in with much hope. Hope for a better year if we have endure trials and tribulations. Hope to start anew if we have lost steam. Hope in the sovereign plan of God and the purpose he has for us this year. A new year, also, comes with the new opportunity to change, update or get back on track with our Bible studies.
