Coffee Maker Product Review: Ninja Coffee Bar

Hello everyone! Today I’m trying a new kind of post: a product review. I was able to bring home a sample product to try out from Heartland America. In the name of disclaimers and complete honesty, these will be my honest, personal opinions and are not necessarily the views of Heartland America. This post is solely sponsored by Heartland America; the manufacturer of Ninja products is not affiliated with this post in any way. Ok now that that’s done we can move on to the review.

Today I am taking a closer look at the Ninja CF081 Coffee Bar coffee maker. First thing to note is that this coffee maker only takes loose coffee grounds. Sorry no pods or k-cups here. But that does mean you can make a full pot of coffee as well as a single cup or travel size mug.

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift DIY: Fish Family Keychain

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the glorious sunshine. Do you have any fun plans for this summer? While my family doesn’t have any big trips planned, I’m sure there will be plenty of fun. Hopefully we will get to camp a few weekends this summer, but with moving we will just have to see. Both of my parents have been a great help during the move. Having a retired carpenter in the family helps with everything. My dad has continually gone above and beyond. Father’s Day is just around the corner. While I have already bought him a Father’s Day gift, I wanted to make something for him as well. Since I used shrink plastic for a Mother’s Day gift last year, I wanted to use it for a DIY Father’s Day gift this year. My dad loves to fish so I created this adorable fish family keychain.

Father's Day Fish Family Keychain DIY

This cute little keychain is a fun way to show some family pride. With a sheet of shrink plastic and some bright permanent markers, you can create a personal school of fish for your family. Save memories and signatures in these cute little fish. Dad will love this celebration of his favorite things: family and fishing.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Men Who Love to Work and Play in the Great Outdoors

Hello! I hope you and your family had a fantastic Memorial Day. It was an extra busy weekend for us. I just moved into a new house. As you can imagine, there are a plethora of things to do. When the sun is shining and the breeze is blowing, I escape the moving boxes and work on the new garden. My dad has been over quite a few times helping with everything. So moving hasn’t been so bad. But there’s still a lot to do and I want to show my appreciation to everyone helping out.

With Father’s Day coming up, I have a wonderful opportunity to express my gratitude for my dad. Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do without him. While getting ready for Father’s Day, I put together a variety of products now available at Heartland America for all the outdoor loving dads out there.

First we have tools for dad’s who love doing projects around the house.

The soap and water will mix so he can scrub away the dirt and grime from the boat, RV, or any other big boy toys. The pole telescopes to six feet for a thorough cleaning job. Now all his fun vehicles will be ready for the next adventure.

Embrace the Dots with an Adorable DIY for Your Home: Polka Dot Rug

Hello everyone! The sun is shining, birds are singing, and the weather is absolutely delightful. It makes me so very happy! I really can’t get enough of this weather. And the weather should be fantastic for Mother’s Day which is less than 2 weeks away. My mom loves polka dots. So this year I wanted to make her something polka dot related for her home. I decided to brush off my latch hooking skills and make her this adorable polka dot rug. It’s so soft and plush and perfect for my mom. It turned out so cute, that I just might have to make one for myself.

Big fluffy pom-poms and long latch hook hoops give an extra plush feeling. The bulky yarn creates a soft and dense texture that is a joy to experience. With the polka dot design, this rug is a darling edition to any room.
