Duct Tape Crafts

We are doing a semi-homemade Christmas this year - we will be doing a combination of handcrafted and store bought gifts.  One thing I plan to do with the girls is try to make duct tape wallets.  I thought that this would be fun and keep them occupied over the long weekend.  It is ironic that I received this info from a PR firm so I had to share....

"This holiday season the stylish do-it-yourself consumer is playfully personalizing projects like art, jewelry, wallets, handbags, ornaments and gift wrap with Designer Duct Tape.

A gift, ribbon, ornament, tree – anything can be made more festive and fun with seamless patterns that put a little extra magic into every aspect of the season. Duct tape is one of the most versatile materials in the world". 

Platypus Designer Duct Tape has a new line of fourteen specialty designs.  These are fun and colorful prints that add dimension, playfulness or interest to your project.  Designer Duct Tape rolls are perfect stocking stuffers for the crafter / artist also!

"One of the most innovative products to newly appear on retail shelves, Designer Duct Tap is the recipient of the 2011 “Retailers’ Choice Award” at the National Hardware Show®"

I cannot wait to come back and show you what we made but for now, check out the fabulous videos below:

Blast From the Past - "Cheerios® Cheer Giveaway" (ended)

Due to a technical issue, earlier posts on this blog were deleted. These posts are being re-shared with readers on a daily basis.  This blog post was originally published on November 19, 2011

We all need pick me ups.  It is easy to get worn down from day to day responsibilities and pressures.  For the millions of military families manning the fort at home while their loved ones are away serving, a gesture of Cheer is especially welcome. 

When our troops are called to serve, their families are impacted as well.  They must rise to meet the challenges of service as well.  To thank these families, Cheerios® and the USO have partnered in a postcard campaign that spreads Cheer directly to these honorable military families and supports USO programs.

Here´s how it works: Now through November, 2011 at your local grocer, specially-marked boxes of Cheerios cereal will feature Cheer postcards on the front of the box. Consumers can simply cut out the postcard from the Cheerios logo, write a message of thanks on the back, add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed card to the USO. The USO will deliver the Cheer card to military families across the country. For each postcard received through November 2012, Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families. 

To kick off the campaign, Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received from specially marked boxes now through November 30th, 2012. Sending a "Cheer" postcard is a simple way to say thanks and lift the spirits of our country´s military families. So, take a moment out of your day to spread some Cheer and send a message of thanks!

Cherrios wants to spread the word about this program. As a result I will be hosting a fun giveaway to promote Cherrios cheer.



Disclosure: Cheerios cereal, information, and giveaway have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.   I did receive an identical prize pack from General Mills through MyBlogSpark to thank me for sharing this information.

Blast From the Past - "Mrs. Renfro Salsa - Review and Giveaway" (ended)

Due to a technical issue, earlier posts on this blog were deleted. These posts are being re-shared with readers on a daily basis. This blog post was originally published on November 6, 2011

We love chips and salsa -   I especially like foods with a twist, so the numerous varieties of salsa were especially appealing.  When the opportunity to review Mrs. Renfro's salsa came up, I jumped. 

All Mrs. Renfro’s Salsas are: ·
 ·  Gluten-free and fat-free

 ·  Made only with natural ingredients

 · Easy to use – every label has a simple and tasty recipe right on the label to give you creative ways of cooking with salsa.  You can also view more recipes on their website.

 · Time- and money savers – a 16-oz jar retails for about $2.89 

 · Readily found in most leading grocery stores in the US, Caribbean, Canada and the UK 

 · A great addition to your next recipe for a great meal 

 · Perfect for time-pressed families looking for healthy, delicious meals while getting the best value for their money.

When you order on their site, you must order in quantities of 4. (4, 8, 12, 16, etc).  I was able to select 4 salsas of my choice and picked the following:

The Mrs Renfro's Salsas arrived quickly and safely - they were packaged securely to minimize the change of breakage during the shipping process. 

So far we have tried the Hot Tomato Relish and the Mango Habanero Salsa.  We LOVED both.  The one thing I have to say is that these are very spicy.  Both my husband and I love spicy foods but agreed that these had an extra spicy kick.  Although I was tempted to try GHOST PEPPER SALSA, I chickened out :)

These salsas and the relish are great!  Our favorite was the Mango Habanero - we both loved the sweet and spiciness.  We both could not stop eating it.  This would definitely make an impression!  I also really liked the tomato relish.  It is very spicy but gave a nice kick to my sandwich.  I also cannot wait to try this in my soups and over beef or chicken.   I have not tried the green salsa yet but the Roasted Salsa is another winner!  This is more traditional but has a rich wonderful fire roasted taste..

Thanks to Renfro Foods, I have one 4 pack to giveaway to one lucky entrant.  Please see the Rafflecopter form for details
