Product Review: 100 Glow Stick Bracelets #glowsticks

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions are my own.



Check it Out!  My daughter loves glow sticks.  She has loved them since she was small and got her first one.  She loves creating jewelry with them and wearing them.  She puts them on the animals, on the car, where ever she wants.  
You can get glow sticks at the dollar store, but they never last very long and you only get a few in the package. So when we found out I had the opportunity to review some glow sticks, Tori was super happy. When she found out there would be 100 glow sticks, she was super, super happy and wanted to use all 100 of them at once!  Yeah, NO!




I received a container of Super Bright Premium Quality Long Lasting Glow Stick Bracelets.  Yes a container of 100 glow sticks!  They are indeed super bright and long lasting.  Each glow stick is 8" long, are non-toxic and CPSIA compliant.  
You can create bracelets, necklaces, glasses and so much more!  As I mentioned Tori puts them on the cats as collars and it is too funny to be able to see them running around in the dark!  She also makes head bands out of them! 




There are so many fun uses for glow sticks and they are great for parties.  You can give them as party favors and you can use them as decoration for a night party!  Put them inside balloons for a beautiful lighted bouquet! The possibilities are amazing! 
You can head over HERE to Amazon and check out more info on these Super Bright Glow Sticks.

Product Review & Giveaway ErgoGrip Comfort Grip for iPads and Tablets #TheErgogrip


*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.




Check it Out! I love my tablet.  It is so handy to have.  One thing that does drive me crazy about it is the size.  What makes is handy to have in certain circumstances makes it uncomfortable to hold onto.  
I have hand issues.  I believe I am getting arthritis because holding and gripping things has become a challenge over the last few years.  So holding onto a thin tablet without covering the screen or putting it inside a larger case is sometimes difficult for me.  
When I recently got the opportunity to check out the ErgoGrip Universal Comfort Grip for all tablets, I was super excited.  



The Ergo grip is made of soft silicone and is shaped so that it fits comfortably in the hand while securely holding the tablet.  It stays on the tablet using suction cups and these soft silicone cups attach to the tablet without causing any damage.





The ErgoGrip is a one piece design that wraps right around the edge of your device and it gives you a handle of sorts.  A place to comfortably hold onto the tablet without having to pinch it between your fingers.  I can't tell you how many times I have dropped or almost dropped my tablet because I found it uncomfortable to just hold onto. With the ErgoGrip Comfort Grip I can just pop it on and now I have a secure and comfortable way to hold onto my tablet.





The ErgoGrip Comfort Grip is available in black, white, pink, green and orange and can be found HERE on Amazon for a reasonable price.  If you are interested in a chance to win one of these cool grips, just enter via the Rafflecopter form below!  Giveaway open to US residents only, must be 18 to win.

Product Review: Chef Proven Professional Zester Grater #bestzestergrater



*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.






Check it Out!  I have said it before, I love kitchen gadgets!  Anything I can find that makes my everyday tasks easier is just awesome to me.  Since I cook everyday, kitchen gadgets are not only important but they can be fun too!  
I recently received this great tool to review and I have to admit that I have always wanted a zester! There are so many instances where having a zester in the kitchen comes in really handy. 


  • Zesting fruit like lemons, oranges and coconuts
  • Zest lime or oranges to add to recipes or on top of your beer or cocktail
  • Zesting fresh spices like cinnamon and nutmeg

What is super cool about the #1 Chef Proven Zester is that it is 2 in 1!  You are also getting a grater! What is great is this is a fine grater to help with tons of recipe additions.

  • Grate fresh Parmesan or Reggiano over your salads or pasta dishes
  • Grate chocolate to sprinkle over desserts or ice cream
  • Grate ginger and garlic for stir fry and stew dishes



With this handy tool, you can take your dishes from good to great!  It is amazing what fresh ingredients can do for a recipe.




So what makes the Chef Proven Professional Zester Grater the best on the market?
Well this tool is make from high grade stainless steel with a durable blade that never needs sharpening.  It has a unique ergonomic design that gives you maximum control while making it easy to use.  It also has a soft non-slip grip that is comfortable to the hand.  And for worry free storage, you get a cover sleeve. 
I love this product because it is extremely sharp, it has a long blade so you can make generous strokes with the food you are grating/zesting and it is comfortable in my hand.  Having a large comfortable handle makes the product much easier to use and makes me want to use it more often. The handle also has a hole in it so you can hang it where you need it so it is always in easy reach. I do recommend keeping this product away from little hands because it is so sharp.  
This product comes with a 100% Satisfaction Lifetime Money Back Guarantee as well. You can head over to Amazon HERE to check it out and order yourself one at a really great price!

#TBCCrafters Craft Hop - Paper Flowers


Check it Out!  If you are a crafter like me than you have paper scraps.  A great way to use up some of those scraps is by making paper flowers. One of the best things about this project is that there is no right or wrong. It's all about what you like, what you have and putting it all together.


The first step is to gather up different punches, templates and I also used my circle scissor. I also used some glue dots, ink pads, buttons and brads.  I use my scrap paper as well as book pages from books that are no longer being used or missing pages.  


I set about making my flower pieces by punching and cutting out various size flower and circle shapes.  Small, medium, large, extra large, whatever shapes and sizes appeal to you.  I punch and cut a ton of shapes in various sizes and throw them all in a container until I have a pile full.  
I love the vintage look on my flowers so I crinkled the shapes up and straighten them back out and then inked up the edges to give them an aged look.  



Then you just start layering up.  Totally up to you whether you use 2, 3 or even 4 layers.  You can glue them together and add buttons or gems or you can just punch a hole into the center of them all and attach a brad.


 

To make the multi- dimensional flowers, I started with one flat shape. 



Then take 6-8 of the same shapes and fold them in half and then in half again.  And then just lay them beside each other and then stack to create the fluffy shape.


So what do you do with all the paper flowers?  Well...
*Stick a pin back on the back and you have a lapel pin
*Use them for scrapbooking layouts
*Decorate with them...
I have these old stackable containers that I use for some of my crafting supplies and they are like I said old, so they aren't really pretty.


But with some more paper scraps cut to fit the fronts and my paper flowers, I now have a decorative element in the middle of my craft area!  And functional, add some decorative tags with the contents labeled and I have functional decoration!


If you know me then you know that I love things that are multi-purpose and with multi possibilities.  These are really endless in the possibility of ways you can design them and use them. 
Curl up the edges creating an even more dimensional flower, add glitter to the edges or center for a beautiful finish.  Spray them with a spray sealer and they become stronger and can be used outdoors in wreaths and such.  Make jewelry with them, a little hot glue and some findings and you have a pendant and earrings or a headband!  Make them using mini-punches and you can create a garden!  I'm telling you, endless possibilities!  My kinda craft!!
