Prevent those Saggy Bottoms with New Pampers Cruisers


When I was in high school, my principal would always say something about guys having “sagging, bagging britches” and to this day every time I see my child with a diaper that is hanging low, I hear his voice say that. 
 I have used Pampers diapers ever since Miss P was born and still love them to this day with Miss S so when I heard that Pampers made some changes to their Pampers Cruisers to make them sag less with new extra absorb channels that help distribute wetness evenly and keep your baby drier, I had to run out to my local Target store to grab some. 

It isn’t too often that Miss S’s diaper is so incredibly wet that it sags but it does happen after naps sometimes, if we are driving long distances or if we are out running errands. 
 I took this picture of her after her nap one day and as you can see, it is quite full and quite low and she clearly isn’t happy that I am taking her picture. Shhh, don’t tell her that I put it up here on the blog! 😉 
She clearly isn’t wearing shorts right now but if she was, it would look like she perhaps had something in her diaper other than it just being wet. I always feel bad when I notice her diaper looking like this and want to get her changed pretty quickly.
The new Pampers Cruisers fit nice and even when we were traveling to TN, they didn’t seem quite so full when we were able to stop to change her diaper.
Of course, they are still great with a baby on the go that is constantly exploring and moving all parts of her body!
I never have to worry about these diapers not holding in the wetness or those nasty stinky diapers no matter what she is doing. 
Yay for no more sagging, bagging britches!! 
And another plus is that kiddos don’t look like they have a super full nasty diaper when they are clothed either! Gotta love that!
Pop by your local Target store or online and snag some new Pampers Cruisers for yourself!
Now through September 5, Buy 2 Pampers Giant Packs, Get $10 Gift Card! (Giant Packs include: Pampers Cruisers and Pampers Swaddlers diapers and both offers will be available in store and online)

All About SNAP Storage + GIVEAWAY

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
 I am so excited to share this post with you today. 
Have you heard of SNAP Storage from We R Memory Keepers
 Do you want to know why I am so excited about it? 
Beside the fact that it is an awesome storage system for ribbon, washi tape and embellishments, my dear sweet, talented, and handsome hubby CREATED it!! 
Yep! He looked at my crazy stash of ribbon and my horrible way of storage and set out to design something for me as a birthday gift. 
This is what he came up with and after teaming up with American Crafts and We R Memory Keepers, the SNAP Storage line was born! 
How fun is that?! 
You can say that I am just a little proud of him, just a little. 😉
 So today I just wanted to take the time so share a little bit about SNAP with all of you.
There are a few different ways you can buy SNAP Storage.

There is a starter kit that comes with one bar and ribbon holders in 3 sizes.
 The ribbon holders fit small, medium, and large rolls of ribbon. You can easily slip them onto the holder and if you want to take them off, just pull it on off.
You can easily pull the ribbon and cut to the length that you want while on the spool or just take it down if you need more.
You can buy just the bars, which come in a pack of 2.
Screws and wall anchors are included in the kit but you could also use command strips on the back of the bars as well.
There are 3 different size holders for washi tape. And the 3 different sized ribbon holders are also sold like this. 
 Small, medium, and large holders as well for washi tape.
You can pull the washi tape just like the ribbon and cut the the length that you would like.
And lastly, there are the little storage containers that come 3 to a box.
Perfect for small little embellishments like beads, buttons, brads, clothes pin, whatever!
The lid of the containers just pop open so you can easily fill or get to what is inside.
All items slip over the bar with little brackets on the back so you can easily remove them to rearrange the if you’d like. 
TIP:
If you have trouble removing brackets from the bar, such as it is pulling on the bar, take everything off the bar and take the bar off the wall and flip it over. We found that there is one edge of the bar that tends to hold onto the hooks a little more than the other. Don’t want to break the hook piece if you pull to hard!
I currently have the whole system up on the wall in my new craft room, but I will definitely be buying more of the ribbon holders because I have SO MUCH MORE ribbon than washi tape.
If you can’t find these in stores yet, don’t worry, they are coming!! 
I know some online craft stores already have them in stock but stores should be receiving their shipments any day now! 
And, be sure to check out We R Memories YouTube video all about SNAP storage to see it live in action.
Now, how would you like to win a set of SNAP Storage?!

Enter below and GOOD LUCK!!!
