BasketBox Review



History

Wow. BasketBox has changed over the years. Some of you may remember our CD/DVD gift boxes. Yep, when they were in style. Then came our creative nuts and fruit gift boxes. That was a blast. Now, here we are with unique hometown apparel and gifts coupled with delicious truffles. What a great combination!

Vision

We all come from a unique place in the world where we are born and raised, which becomes home. You’ll never change that. What does change for some of us is our desire to leave the nest and comfort of home and explore other locations that we adopt as our new hometown. BasketBox is dedicated to promoting and exploring the unique cities and states we call home in our demonyn style apparel and gifts, which inspire conversation, bring back memories and are statements of pride.

Mission

Growing up and struggling to understand basic language skills, reading comprehension, and arithmetic is a silent disease that deserves more support. Each BasketBox order supports the International Dyslexia Association, a non-profit that provides research, education and outreach programs around the world to help those that need dyslexia support and treatment. A portion of each order goes to the IDA to continue to support early detection and remediation of dyslexia. Dyslexia causes reading failure and illiteracy, that can hinder the potential of children and adults to contribute successfully to society. 

Team

BasketBox, first created in 2003 by Emmanuel Sullivan, who is a serial entrepreneur, author, and creative nerd; born and raised in the Emerald city Seattle. His crazy love for traveling and geography has shipped him around the country to various cities where he has called home several times. Each city has inspired wonder and adventure. With that in mind, BasketBox was reborn to explore the Demonym in all of us. Stay in touch and tell me where you're from, I'd love to chat, please contact me here.


My Review: 

BasketBox is a very neat company as you can read above.  They sell t-shirts, pillows, mugs, onesies, and so much more! 

First comment on the t-shirt needs to be the softness!   It is so comfy and soft which I adore! I think it is my new favorite shirt!   Now many of you know I live in Iowa but did you know I was born and raised in Wisconsin?   I will always stay true to my roots as I cheer on my Packers and Badgers!  

The many products that BasketBox has would make great gifts to anyone who has been traveling or moving to a new state.    

Thanks BasketBox for sending me this t-shirt for free in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are mine.

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
