Some of the prizes in my contest are zPalz, which were created by my thirteen-year-old daughter, Jane. She and my husband recently set up a company to sell them. Don’t know what zPalz are? They’re portable battery chargers inside some adorable stuffed animals. Here’s the story behind Jane’s idea:
It all started when Jane, then twelve-years-old, started using a cell phone. After a day of texting friends, watching Studio C, and playing games, her phone had almost no charge left in it. My husband offered her his portable battery charging bank, but she refused to take it with her because it was too ugly, however, she insisted she would if it was more of a toy and cute. The idea for zPalz was born! Together, my husband and daughter picked some animal ideas and finally arrived at a product design she approved.
The first two production designs are a fox and a wolf. The fox was Jane’s request and the wolf was designed for our local high school to sell for their annual charity drive. Jane and my husband have also designed three other animals (a beaver, a panda and a raccoon) for future production.
They came up with the slogan, “Power Your Cute.” Here’s how zPalz work:
The zPalz are perfect for travel since they are only five inches tall, but they carry a lot of charge because they have a 5200 mAh 2.0 amp rechargeable battery power bank inside.
You can purchase zPalz on Amazon:
My daughter and husband have generously donated two zPalz as prizes for my grand opening celebration. Enter the contest! Plus, they have also given ALL of you a $5 off coupon code for purchasing zPalz on Amazon!
The coupon code above and a 10% off coupon to my Etsy Shop are also included in today’s download.
Be the Light Notebooks
And, now for today’s free download! (Link at the end of this post.) These Be the Light Notebooks coordinate perfectly with my other Be the Light printables. Use them to inspire your young women:
- Give them as birthday or Christmas gifts
- Assemble them at a YW Mutual activity
- Leave them as pillow treats at girls camp
- Present them as handouts at Young Women in Excellence or New Beginnings
- Give them as gifts to Activity Days girls
- Assemble them at an Activity Days event
Encourage your girls to fill up their notebooks with quotations, scriptures, lesson notes and drawings.
Making these Be the Light Notebooks is easy, too, and the download includes a supply list and instructions. All you need is white card stock, a color printer and supplies for your preferred binding method. Optional supplies: transparency sheets (for front and back covers) and a piece of chipboard for reinforcement of the back cover.
Each notebook is the size of a quarter page or about 5 1/2 by 4 1/4-inches. I’ve designed a Be the Light cover and fourteen unique pages. Here are images for the cover and a few pages:
Also included is a bonus 2016 Mutual Theme page, which I use as the back cover.
If you don’t want to use the 2016 Mutual Theme page for the back cover, select one of the other pages to use, or have no back cover at all.
I printed my notebook on white card stock using my printer’s highest-quality setting and then cut the pages apart using my paper cutter. Each notebook takes four sheets of card stock (there are four pages per sheet).
To protect the front and back covers, I also cut up a sheet of transparency paper and made clear covers for them, but this is totally optional. And, to add a little strength, I used my slice-style paper cutter to size a 6×6-inch piece of chipboard to size and glued it to the back cover before binding. This step is also optional.
I bound my notebook using my Zutter Bind It All and owire, but you can use almost any binding method you want including heavy-duty staples, hole punch and rings/ribbons or Cerlox.
I’m pretty excited with how this project turned out!
