Hello! Are you looking forward to this Memorial Day weekend as much as I am? Hopefully your family can enjoy this three day weekend together. Also remember to spend some time honoring the brave men and women who have sacrifice so much for us. If the weather cooperates, I suggest taking a picnic basket and enjoying the outdoors. While you are soaking up the sun, keep your kids entertained with bubbles. This week I created a bubble wand and some bubble solution you can enjoy with your family.
Using a dowel rod and some cotton yarn, you can create a wand for making lots of bubbles. The single handed design makes it easy to walk around and create bubbles. Creating a web of loops in your bubble wand makes it easier to create bubbles. Which makes this project great to do with your kids. And they will have a blaster making bubbles with their own bubble wand.
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 everyone! And hello spring! I feel like I talk about the weather all the time. But in Minnesota the weather is always unpredictable and a topic of discussion. Thankfully this week is going to be perfect for enjoying time outside with family. It’s so nice to actually enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about freezing to death. Before walks, water sports, and camping, I need to replace some items that wore out last year. To get the gear I need this spring, I first checked out Heartland America. Right now they have a variety of products to make the most of the coming spring and summer months. So I wanted to share with you a few of the things I found that will help you stock up for spring.
Get your guy ready to tackle outdoor work and play with great spring gear.

Hello everyone! I hope the weather where you are has been enjoyable, at least some of the time. Our weather in Minnesota is persists in being unpredictable. But that’s how it usually is. It is nice springy one day, and then it’s frosty winter the next. I’m already tempted to start cleaning, but with snow in the forecast I’ll just have to start preparing. This week I have some ideas of what you will need for your spring cleaning.
No matter the work need outdoors, here are some great tools to get the job done.
Clean up your patio, driveway, and garage floor with a Sun Joe electric leaf blower. With two speed that produce up to 215 mph wind speed, you can blast through those dead leaves and debris that you missed in the fall.
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.
A winter coat is an essential in style and warmth when the cold weather hits.

Nothing sounds better than snuggling in to enjoy the changing fall weather. It’s time to break out the cozy blankets, sweatshirts, and enjoy the crisp outdoors.
Looking through HeartlandAmerica.com, I found a lot of great products to enhance your autumn experience. I put together a few collections of awesome items that I hope you enjoy.

Hello everyone! Are you ready for the 4th of July? I am nearly ready: just a couple of things left to finish up. I’m looking forward to the parades, fireworks, food, and patriotic fun with my family. Have you been enjoying the red, white, and blue soda floats from last week? I have soda and ice cream stocked in my fridge for the fourth. But as I was looking around my home, I discovered it needed a bit of American flair. I really enjoy twinkle lights and have them throughout my home. I decided to make mini shades for them and they turned out adorably!
I love them and I am planning to make more to go with my everyday decor. They are really easy and cheap to make for any decor or celebration.
Not only is Father’s Day this Sunday, but International Picnic Day is this Saturday! So why not celebrate them both with a fun picnic for Father’s Day. Ok so a Father’s Day Picnic, great idea right? Just one small problem…I don’t have a picnic basket. I don’t want one of those tiny baskets either because it doesn’t leave room for a blanket or more than two beverages. So I do what I usually do, head to the thrift store to find one. While I didn’t find a picnic basket, I found what I need to make a picnic basket just the way I want.
Just by using a bit of spray paint and some belts you can turn a bland but nice sized basket into a charming addition to any picnic.
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.
Here are some Father’s Day gift ideas for those dads who love playing in the great outdoors.
