Green Giant™ Veggie Snacks

Pin It

Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips - yummy is all I can say!! 
Brand new hot off the press are two delicious flavors of chips.  Roasted Veggie Tortilla *Garden Ranch* and Mulitgrain Sweet Potato *Barbecue*  there are two additional flavors too Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt.
Green Giant isn't just for veggies any more, now they have chips and I was lucky enough to receive two bags to sample, and share with you, and ya know what they are great.  It's the perfect chip for entertaining with a dip or like we tried with Guacamole.  They are very flavorful and crisp. 

Here are the chips in real life side by side. 

Sweet potato on the left and Tortilla on the right
The Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips has a delicious taste of roasted bell peppers and ranch flavor!  They have 18 grams of Whole Grain, 0 grams of Trans Fat and made with real vegetables

While, the Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips has the delicious flavor of sweet potatoes and smoky barbecue!  They have 14 grams of Whole Grain, 0 grams of Trans Fat, made with Real Sweet Potatoes and they have 40% less fat than regular potato chips
We dipped into Guacamole and it was the perfect addition to the already flavorful chips.  You really don't need any dip though as they were so flavorful.  They both were super crunchy and the seasonings on them, giving them their unique flavor, are delicious.  
Something else fun is they have the box tops for schools on the bags so if you have kiddos you can clip those and send them in with your kids!!
Don't forget to grab your coupon at the beginning of the post so you can try them to
Happy Snacking

Twelve Month Calendar Journal Box

Pin It
Do you journal?  I have tried but just don't seem to finish the books.  I have great intentions where I plan to write every day, just a little something to remember days past. So here's what I came up with.  A Calendar Journal Box.

I made the box using my Ryobi Miter Saw and added the twine handles and stained it with Minwax stain.  I filled the box with 365 file cards and 12 dividers using my Dear Lizzy American Crafts paper. I stamped each date January 1, January 2, January 3 - and so on for all 365 days.

Now for the journaling part.  Each day you can pull that dates card and jot a short something down and stick it back behind the rest of the months cards.  Then continue all month, month after month and then when you finish all 365 days you start over. What's fun is you can look back and see what your note was from last year, and the years past, as you reach that date each year for each of the days of the year.

Google reader is going away so please add Hoot Designs to your preferred reader, I switched over to Bloglovin' and I really like it!

A great find to share Brit & Co.

Pin It
I have found a great site and I wanted to share it with you.  Brit + Co.

It's fun and colorful on line community that has the greatest finds, DIY projects and recipes and MORE!  That's Brit under the logo.  I first learned about Brit + Co. via an email from one of her staff that one of my projects had been included in a round up post. 40 Creative ways to use Chalkboard Paint.
 This is a photo I copied from my phone about the post

My Chalkboard Globe was featured and I was in the mix with several other amazing bloggers and DIYers out there. If you click the image above it will take you to the Brit + Co. post!!

 Great projects with all the supplies and how to's included delivered each month to your door - HOW FUN!!

I can't say enough.  It has a little bit of the flavor of Pinterest but MUCH BETTER by leaps and bounds!!!  There is thought that goes in to each project or recipe and amazing fun and funky products they share.  Even the round ups are beautiful.  We have seen so many round ups on Pinterest it's getting old (in my opinion).  It's your personal page on Brit + Co. when you log in, there no followers!!

Laundry Room Reveal Before & After

Pin It
It's been in the making and now finally finished

The new and improved laundry room.  Now, I must say, the room is so tiny and when I open the door it actually just misses the washer so it's not deep and it's about 94 inches wide.  Just enough for a little space on either side of the washer and dryer.

I had some wood cut at Lowe's and I stained it to sit across the washer and dryer as a solid surface.  There are those yucky white shelves behind the yellow chevron curtain. I didn't want to take them down so I covered them up.

One of the reasons I wanted to have a cute room was because as you look up my stairs this room is at the top, and as you walk up the stairs you look right in the laundry room.  So, a cute washer and dryer were a must and a much needed cute room too.

Here is the before, yuck right? It was in the partial stages of getting ready to paint

Here is an instrgram photo of my pinning and sewing the curtain.

So bright and cheerful

I love home made laundry detergent - here is the recipe. It's in the clothes pin jar!! The small jar to the left has lost in the laundry items, and things that have taken a "spin."

The printables I purchased and some were free.

This is a fun pendant I bought at Lowe's to hang rather then the builders light!

The orange crates were purchased at Michael's with 40% off coupons and spray pained, they hold cleaning supplies.

You can see the shelf here

I'm was excited to have my laundry room reveal on Shanty 2 Chic on May 1st!!  I have followed Ashley and Whitney for a while now and I just love all their projects. They are super clever and doable which is most appealing!!  When Whitney and Ashley emailed and asked if I'd like to guest post I was wondering what in the world will I post, then it hit me, my new laundry room. I have been in the laundry room "redo" stages and this was the motivator I needed.
