You have no idea how excited I am for the warmer temps. Don't get me wrong I don't mind having temperatures in 50's but some of these 70 degree days are just dreamy. I love when I find an outfit that is just easy to throw together and is super comfy. This bird print top from Downeast Basics has quickly become a favorite in my wardrobe!

Snap Basket Review with CleverMade

Posted by Devin and Tara


I don't know about you guys, but Tara and I have had some crazy family schedules lately. Between our kids sports and activities and family parties and events, it seems like we spend most of our time in our cars running around in circles. And don't even get me started on Saturdays, activities are one after the other from sun up to sun down! 

With all of that running around comes lots of baggage as well. Sports equipment, snacks, jackets, hats, blankets, drinks... we have to load up with all of the necessary items to get our families through the day before we head out. When we were asked to review Snap Baskets, we were in! Anything that can help us get organized amidst chaotic schedules works for us.


Tara and I each received a Snap Basket as well as a Snap Basket Thermo, an insulated version to keep items either hot or cold. I love that I can load up my baskets with all of the things we need, it's easy to get everything into my car, and it keeps my trunk tidy. And as the day goes on and we take items out of the baskets, we can collapse them to clear up trunk space!


I recently used my Snap Basket Thermo to take team snacks to my son's basketball game. The drinks stayed nice and cold and I didn't have to worry about packing and hauling ice around. So much easier than an ice chest!


Snap Baskets are lightweight and durable and make our busy days a little bit simpler. To learn more about them check out Snap Basket's website or find them on social media: Instagram  Facebook, Twitter.


We are excited to be hosting a great giveaway for Snap Basket as well! Simply comment on this post with your name and email address for a chance to win a Snap Basket of your choice! Good luck, we know you'll love it!

DIY Valentine Coasters

Posted by Tara


The holiday of LOVE is quickly approaching. As soon as I took down my Christmas decor I quickly replaced it with all of my Valentine's decor. I enjoy decorating my home in red and pink and gold for this holiday. Hearts and love themed quotes are some of my favorite things. I recently was thinking of something new I could add to my home for Valentine's Day and came across these blank burlap coasters at Hobby Lobby. I knew that they could easily be transformed into something for Valentine's. This craft is no only easy, but also inexpensive! Let's get started!
First you will need:
Paint Brushes
Craft Paint ( I used electric pink and razzle berry)
Burlap Coasters
Hearts (I used die cuts)
Glitter (not needed, but who doesn't love a little sparkle in crafting?)
Pen


I first centered the heart on each coaster and traced with a pen around it. After they are all traced on I then used my paint brush to paint inside the line. This was super easy. Even if you get outside the line it doesn't matter, it still looks cute! 


While the paint is still wet use your glitter to sprinkle on your heart. This part is totally optional but I always love adding glitter to any craft project!




Let dry and get ready to set how for your next Valentine's party or dinner! You can also give them a quick spray with a clear coat to try and seal in that paint, just in case anything were to spill on them. I hope you like this fun Valentine's craft, and be sure to check our Pinterest Page for more Valentine's Ideas!
