Dorm Trunks and C&N Footlockers

This is an exclusive review and sneak peek for the upcoming Back to School Giveaway Hop next week!  Be sure to check out the bonus at the end of this post.  

Please let us introduce you to!!

If you have a tween or teen, a good solid footlocker is a blessing for many reasons.  Where do you attractively store all those video games and books?  Maybe your kids head off to summer camp every year with less than perfect solutions for their belongings.  Perhaps they're getting ready for college and need someplace safe to stash their valuables and electronics.  This is exactly what happened to us a few years ago.

Our oldest son was headed to college and wanted to take all of his expensive electronics with him.  I was less than thrilled.  After searching the web for solutions, we found C&N Footlockers and were intrigued.  Not only was the footlocker built to last and a billion times more solid than anything like it you could find locally, it provides extra seating.  Bonus!!  We purchased our son a Companion Footlocker in black with an Anchoring Cable so it could be locked and secured to his bed at his college apartment.  Today, he is married and uses the footlocker for blankets in his home and it's lovely.  It will certainly last the test of time and his children will be able to use that footlocker.

We were sent the Happy Camper Footlocker in Light Blue to review.  Let me tell you, it does not disappoint!  All the footlockers at are built with 3/8" solid aspen plywood.  Yes, wood!  Not some thick cardboard or paper board product.  The outside is steel with a scratch-resistant baked enamel finish.  Can you believe it?  Steel and wood.  Honestly, this thing is one sturdy puppy.

 The color is consistently the same and not darker on top.  Silly shadows!

Additional features include:
  • Water Resistant and Tear Proof Interior Liner
  • A Lifetime Warranty
  • 20 color choices including everything from Hot Pink and Lime Green to Olive Drab and Chocolate. 
  • Included Divided Nylon Glide and Go Tray
  • Can be personalized and decorated with stickers and paint if you want.
  • World Class Customer Service
  • Sturdy metal handles, hinges, corners, hasp and details.

There really is just not a footlocker out there that compares to the C&N Footlockers at, they truly are amazing.  We encourage you to visit them and see what they have to offer.  Read the reviews, you'll be sold!!

Everyone who comments on this post before August 7th will receive a bonus entry to next week's Back to School Giveaway Hop where you can win an amazing Gift Certificate!

I have a material connection because I received a gift or sample of a product for consideration in preparing to write this content. I was/am not expected to return this item or gift after my review period.

Would use this as a toybox we are always in need of more storage space for toys.

Wow! I could really use one of those! It would make the perfect storage/seating area in my 12 yr olds room!
Thanks for the chance! :)

These trunks are great, especially for teens (I was terrible about throwing everything into mine when I needed to clean my room.)

Haven't ordered my daughter's college trunk yet, but will by 2nd week of August at the latest! I have looked around & these seem to be the best of all trunks around and I am very happy with their warranty claims!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
