Tell your story in a picture perfect arrangement!

Looking for something that is beautiful, yet simple and stylish?  I have just the product for your organizing and decorating needs, but I have to admit confess something for a moment:

The last time a picture frame was offered (the Woven Traditions Pottery Frame from a couple years ago), I was not really pleased with it, because mine broke.  I love the one being offered today because it is in the tradition of the baskets, and in the current stains of the baskets.   So grab yourself a couple of frames today through tomorrow at 11:59 pm.  After that time, the price will go away, as well as the frames.
  •  Handcrafted WoodCraftsPicture Frames made with solid hardwood maple, each imparts its own unique characteristics
  • Beautiful beveled details attest to the fine craftsmanship of these frames
  • Available in Warm Brown, Vintage, Pewter, Whitewashed and Black, these frames can be displayed horizontally or vertically
  • Call me or visit my Longaberger website to order today

Got Your Chores Done?

  • Housework is never easy.  You have to wash the dishes, sweep the floor, clean the kitchen and bathrooms, and make the beds.  After all, they are not going to clean themselves.  
    Now I have a basket that does not live up to its name.  It is called the chore basket, and the reason why it does not live up to the name given is because you can organize with it.  here are some ideas to the “organizing” basket:
    ·        Holds small cars or dolls in a child’s bedroom or play area
    ·        Holds game pieces
    ·        Use it as a nail pampering station
    ·        Holds scarves and hats
    ·        Holds hair extensions
    ·        Use it as part of a mailing station (holds stamps, greeting cards, or bills)
    ·        Use it as part of your writing nook. Holds pens, your journal, and a snack or two. 
    ·         Planners are all the rage now, so it can hold planners, stickers, washi tape, and color pens. (you see where I am going with this?)
    ·        Holds cameras
    ·        Can be a part of a charging station.  Plug up your phone or tablet and stick inside of the basket.
    ·        You can carry your lunch in it
    ·        Use by the pool or at the beach (see picture)
    ·        It can be your car basket.  Place those things next to you, so you can reach for it.
    ·        Holds baby toys while changing them
    ·        Diaper caddy
    And many more ideas.
  • A hard-working basket at a fantastic price! You will love our Medium Chore Basket because it’s one you’ll reach for every day. It’s so versatile, you can use it in any room of your home.
  • At just $55 – you save $14 for a limited time.
  • The Chore Basket is available in Warm Brown, Vintage, and Pewter. Protector available separately
  • Call me or visit my Longaberger website to order today.

This week the Summer Olympus is on.  I am not the type of person who watches every single event, but I know who I am rooting for, Team USA.  I usually watch swimming, diving, and everything gymnastics.  It gives me great pride when I watch people like Michael Phelps for swimming or Simone Biles for gymnastics. 
Longaberger decided to get into the game by providing a basket and protector.  The basket can be a great addition to your red, white, and blue collection, store items such as keys, or place in the craft and sewing room.  
It is only available from now through the close of the closing ceremonies, which is Aug 22. 
In the meantime, I will be checking out the men’s swim team, or stick to watching gymnastics.
Go Team USA!   

  • Show your American pride with our Team USA Basket and Protector Set.
  • Available for a limited time to coincide with the Summer Olympics
  • Featuring Bold Red, White, Navy Blue and Warm Brown – the Team U.S.A Basket is a true winner!

Spring Cleaning Combo – Laundry Basket and Lunchbox Basket

(Warning:  Affiliate links ahead)

I have often used a combination of baskets in areas of my house that have been very useful.  The reason is while most people would find value in collecting a Longaberger basket, I find it more valuable to use the baskets.  In other words, the functionality of the baskets. 
If you are a Longaberger basket collector, I am giving you a challenge right now, as you are sitting there reading this post, to find ways in which to organize with your basket.
My first “go to” baskets are the Small Laundry Basket and the Lunchbox Basket.  You can use these two baskets in any room.   Let me show you how I use these two baskets.
The Small Laundry Basket- basket ($194.00), Protector ($53.00), Lid ($80.00) Total = $ 350.00

Ok, I not the best person for laundry tips and tricks, I do not use it for the laundry.  You can if that is your purpose, but you can do so much more with this basket and its companion pieces. 
For instance, Example #1 is a treasure chest for kids.  All you need for this organization piece is one Small Laundry Basket, one Lid, and one protector.  Other Items you can use is the Lunchbox Basket, the companion protector and Lid, The Medium Market basket, protector, and Lid, Small or Medium Stow Away Baskets.  The trick is to get your child to see what treasures they have inside.  You can label them with the Small Blackboard Tie-on ($14.00) or the Large Blackboard tie-on ($16.00).
Example #2 is Hope chest.   It is smaller than the Retired Hope chest that Longaberger sold a few years ago, but it will do.  You can also use the protector and lid, and place only the more important stuff for your child to use and remember when it is time to give it to them.  I know that it will fit a wedding dress, baby albums, mementos, or awards they have won.
Craft supplies example #3.  Just like the treasure chest idea, you can add smaller baskets to divide the supplies, and it is great if you have a really small place to craft, like I do.  I have my crafts in my home office, and that space was converted from a dining room in a condo townhome.
Last, I cannot leave off what the baskets was made for, the laundry.  What I love about the lid and protector is when you are not able to complete your laundry, you can place the lid on top until the next day, especially if people is coming over. 
Bonus:  It also makes a cute little kiddie bench for your child to sit on or a perch for the cat.  Just add a pillow on top of the lid. To secure it, add Velcro to the bottom of the pillow and to the lid.  
Lunchbox Basket- Basket ($75.00), Protector ($17.00), Lid ($36.00) total = $128.00

Who does want to carry lunch in this basket?  Although I no longer work outside of the home, I could totally rock this.  In Japan, this could make a good bento box basket, but since I am not in Japan, I decided that this would hold items in my laundry room, like my dryer sheets, samples of laundry pads, and extra TP (Toilet Paper).  There are other ways of using this basket and its companion pieces.
Keeping in the theme of the above examples with the laundry basket, the first example is placing the basket combo inside the laundry basket as part of the treasure chest.  I see cars and little toy men for boys, a tea set in the basket for girls.  How about clothes for the dolls or a Star Wars collection.  Teething toys, stuffed animals, and pacifiers for babies. 
Example #2 would be for the hope chest idea, again, placing smaller items inside the laundry basket for that special day, when the adult child gets to see what is inside.  
For the Craft supplies example, you can store glue sticks, stamps, die cut dies, ink pads, 6 x 6 paper pads, small kits, sewing supplies (make a great mending basket), small needle baskets, and hold a current small project inside. The basket is bigger than it looks.
Bonus:  Makes a great small coffee tray to carry mugs out to sit on the porch or to hold K-cups, hot chocolate packs, pastries, fruit basket, and a caddie for small items.

So that is it for this week’s product idea and review with Longaberger products.   Be sure to check out my website at, and if you would like a catalog or to find out about Collector’s Club (only $30 until April 30th), or how to be a member of my team, you can follow me and contact me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.  You may also email me.     

P. S:  All the items listed can be easily put on a party order.  you can add one here or create your own and reap the benefits of half priced and Host dollars.
