6 Things To Have In Mind When Creating Embroidered Hats

Image
Creating custom embroidered hats is really fun! It allows you to show your creative side and create something that will last for years and years. It can also be very personal; you can make items that are close to your heart and which you could never buy anywhere else.
While creation of these hats is pretty easy and streamlined, there are certain things to consider. First and foremost, different online stores provide different options. Still, most of them focus on several main categories which you have to go through until you create the ideal embroidered hat.
Here are some of the things you will need to do when creating a custom hat and things to consider when going through these steps!
1. Size and sex While most hats and caps are stretchy or at least, you can adjust them, it is much better to choose a product based on your head size. Sex is another thing you need to consider. While you might think that every hat is unisex there are some significant differences between them.
2. Basic type o…

The Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions

The Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions by Tim Shoemaker
About The Book: The remedy to ho-hum, not-again, "Do we have to?" family devotions. Regular family devotions are important. Unfortunately, they're often.....boring. But what if devotions looked less like sitting still and listening to someone read and more like, say, electrocuting a pickle? Or converting a leaf blower into a toilet paper launcher? Or lighting toothpaste on fire? These hands-on, kinda dangerous, totally unforgettable object lessons (along with nearly fifty others) are not only more fun than other family devotions - they actually deliver the spiritual impact you desire for your kids. So put away the flannel-graph, get out the safety goggles, and start bringing the truths of Scripture to vivid life in your household. Just remember to change out of your Sunday clothes first.
About The Author: Tim Shoemaker is the author of 14 books. He has worked as a volunteer with youth at his local ch…

Stress Of Paying For College And Beyond

Image
College is not going to be cheap in 2020, and I can not even imagine what it is going to look like when Callan goes to college in 2027-2028, if he chooses to go. Which of course we will encourage him to go. I should have gone to college myself right out of high school way back in, cough cough, 1998, but I did not, and neither did my husband, Jason, until later in life, and he is now going back to college and has to look for grants and loans and scholarships. And it costs a lot of money for us, and it can tend to be a hardship on our family if we are not careful and do not get the right loans or find the right grants. And we are adults now. So just imagine how hard it is for a kid right out of high school. It is not easy.
You would actually be surprised the amount of places that generously give out scholarships to students who are aspiring to go to college right out of high school, such as Premier Allergy. You just have to look in the right places. It is amazing the companies and busine…

Getting Your Foot In The Door

Image
Owning a small business, sometimes it can be hard to find customers, even with a blog it can be hard to find leads to get business or media and marketing partners or opportunities to do reviews, interviews, reviews, etc. It took me a long time to get my foot in the door. And though a lot of people do not consider a blog to be a small business, and I am not even at the point that a lot of the blogs out there are at, it can be an income generating venue for a lot of people. I am by no means rolling in the dough, but I make nickels and dimes, and a lot of times I have made a few bucks to help my family out when it needed to. It has by no means replaced my full time job, as some bloggers have claimed their blog has (I wish), but they have the connections and the time that I do not. And the leads. Pronexis provides small business owners with a fully integrated solution for their lead generation, lead management, and Pronexis lead handling.
Starting a small business is not easy. Like I said,…

When Bad Weather Happens

Image
When I was a little girl, I was in a tornado. Living in the Midwest, we get them a lot in the spring and summer months. Heck, sometimes even in the fall! It is a reality of life here. It is a good thing I enjoy a good thunderstorm. Though in reality we do not get the damaging rip your house off the ground and ruin everything all together like the Wizard of Oz type of tornado that often. But the tornado I was in was pretty scary for my 12 year old self. Actually, I have been in a few of them, but this was one was more memorable than the other ones.
We were at our cabin on Mille Lacs Lake and Dad was out on the lake fishing, as we were at the resort with Mom playing in the arcade and such, when the sirens blew and the owners of the chalet said it was time to get in the storm cellar. Mom panicked because Dad was still on the lake fishing and in those days there were no cell phones to communicate, and how were we to know if the men were getting off the lake in time? So a bunch of people we…

Top Chops Jerky

Image
Beef jerky can be known for its tough and chewy texture, but one snack brand believes consumers deserve a more tender experience. T.O.P. Chops Jerky is a handcrafted jerky made from American beef with no additives or preservatives, and it’s grown from an at-home hobby to a thriving, national snack brand disrupting the jerky industry - in just six short years. Dusty Jaquins, who is one of the co-founders of T.O.P. Chops, started making jerky from his Atlanta kitchen using an old family recipe. Everyone who tried it raved over the taste and texture, encouraging Jaquins to take the jerky to market. Jaquins and his fellow co-founder, Luke Sellers, knew they had to share the southern-born beef jerky with the world. Today, T.O.P. Chops Jerky is a national brand, offered at many major grocery retailers across the country. What makes the jerky better? Jaquins explains how special and different come down to three important things: T.O.P Chops only uses USDA Graded Select or better bee…
