Good day all! Hasn’t the weather been just glorious? It’s lovely to get outside for a walk without getting carried away by mosquitoes. I’m looking forward to speeding more time outside with my mom this weekend. That’s right Mother’s Day is this weekend! While I’m not completely unprepared, it would be nice to add a little something extra to my mom’s gift. Checking my craft closet I found some sheets of Shrinky Dinks®* plastic. I’ve loved this stuff ever since I was a kid. So I decided to give this kiddie project some grownup elegance and create a wrap bracelet for my mom.
With a bit of ribbon and some jewelry supplies, this wrap bracelet DIY is elegant and easy to make. It’s also a great project to do with your kids which makes it extra special for mom. In an hour or less, you can create a unique bracelet that mom will love to wear.
Good morning everyone! Spring has officially sprung, and these April showers are sure to bring out beautiful May flowers. My family and I have been enjoying the weather when we can, but no one likes to be soggy and cold. At least everything is turning a lovely shade of green. It’s easy to get caught up in the joys of Spring, but don’t forget Mother’s Day is just over two weeks away!
There’s still time to order something special for your mom this Mother’s day. Or to give your man a little nudge in the right gift giving direction. This week I have put together an assortment of gift ideas for relaxing, cooking, and enjoying the backyard. All of these great gifts are available at Heartland America while supplies last.
Mothers do so much for their family and friends; they deserved to be pampered with any of these gifts.

Hello and happy National Puppy Day everyone! There is nothing like bringing home a bundle of furry joy. While I don’t have a puppy at the moment, my brother has an adorable dog that he adopted from the local animal shelter. He is such a sweet pup and fills everyone he meets with love and joy. If you are thinking about getting a pet for your family, I personally recommend going to your local shelter. There are lots of wonderful animal who need caring forever homes. I have gotten pets from there, and they have added so much to my life. Since it’s National Puppy Day, I thought it be a great idea to create a basket of goodies to welcome my doggy nephew and make a dog toy for him while I’m at it.
This basket is a blast to put together for new puppy parents. The rope toy is great for playing fetch in the park or chewing on while they relax. This dog toy is also easy and cheap to make. Creating a special gift for someone’s new fur baby will let them know that they are loved.
Happy Thursday everyone! It is the end of January, which means spring is coming! Here in Minnesota snow, ice, and winter in general gets old very fast. But there are still a couple months before spring. In the meantime, Valentine’s Day is coming up fast.

October just flew past, and it’s nearly November. It has officially turned chilly out. Perhaps more than chilly as the weather heads toward the frigid cold of Minnesota winter. Frankly it’s more frightening that winter is nearly here than the fact that Halloween is just a few days away. While I’m prepared for Halloween, I’m not as prepared for winter. Here in Minnesota you do have to actually prepare for winter. Blizzards are not uncommon on Halloween, so I checked out Heartland America to put together a great assortment of products to keep you warm and cozy this winter.

Are you ready for fall yet? I can’t wait! I’m kinda over summer. If you have a student going into college, they are experiencing a mixture of excitement and nerves. The thought of living in the dorms is especially fun and a bit scary. When I was in college, my roommate and I made our room one of the cutest on that floor. Making the dorm room a comfy oasis is a must for students that are away from home. But that can get expensive, so this week I decided to do a budget decor DIY for any dorm room or bedroom.
These pillows can be made very cheaply or even free. You can customize these t-shirt pillows for anyone with the right shirt. I am currently on a t-shirt pillow making spree, as you can see. They are fun to make, and you can make your own in less than an hour.
I hope you have had a great summer so far. It’s hard to believe that we are nearly halfway through summer vacation. But thankful there is still plenty of summer left to enjoy. I’ve been enjoying time outside and time with my family, and I’m always on the lookout for new things that will help my summer go even better. I decided to look through what Heartland America has to offer and I wanted to share some of the great products that I found with you.
Keep enjoying your summer with some great shoes for all your warm weather fun.

I can’t believe that Father’s Day is less than two weeks away! Sometimes it is difficult to decide what to buy for my dad because he has so many skills and hobbies. I get my creativity from both my parents, but I think the urge to “just go for it and make things happen” comes from my dad. 🙂
With so many hobbies and pastimes to choose from, I made some inspiration boards from items offered by Heartland America. There is so much to choose from that finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day will be easy.
By using these boards, I hope you can find great gifts to celebrate the dad’s in your life this Father’s Day as well.
