When the Homeschool Review Crew asked me to review the Personalized Framed Plaque with Name Meaning and Bible Verse from CrossTimber I was wondering if it was a good idea I don’t reveal the children’s names on here. Just a bit of anonymity for the children until they are themselves ready to reveal who they are to the world. I decided that only those that know us will know which of the girls is named Angel.
You see when I picked the name Angel it was pretty, in my head, it was sweat and fenimin, it goes well with our biblical-themed names we have. What I had not thought about is the fact that not all cultures consider the name Angel a girls name. In fact, it never came up until we moved to Mexican Town. Suddenly we were thrust into a cultural shift in which left my little princess questioning if she had a boys name.
Each name is unique and should be celebrated
You see a few doors down is a little boy named Angel. A common name for boys in Mexican communities. The kids in the neighborhood made sure to point this out. It was a sad day for my princess. I think I will get the rest of the children these for Christmas.
I picked the artists choice for the frame and they sent a nice clean wood frame that accents the background image I picked very well. It can hang or stand up well is no issues. If you are unsure of what frame to buy the artists choice will ensure that your frame will match with the image.
They included a matching card about the size of a typical baseball card. This little surprise made me happy. I took a moment to hole punch it and add a bit of ribbon to give her a very nice bookmark she loves. This would also make a great addition to a card for the gift receiver. It would may a fun craft project.
Learn the meaning of your name
CrossTimber offers bookmarks, cards, coffee mugs, and all sorts of other products with your choice of design. They pick a nice quote from the bible to represent the name you choose and it’s meaning. I should have challenged them a bit more. Perhaps with my grandmothers, name as I have never seen anything with that on it. Well except for the street her father named after her all those years ago. It would have been a fun one to challenge them with. Do you have a unique name? Send them a message and see what they can find for you.
