Because of You Confections & Creations is my personal home based business that I wanted to share with all of you! I am located in Barberton and I would love to make you a tasty treat or some jewelry sometime!

Why Because of You?

My husband has always been supportive and helpful when I want to try something. I’ve watched his drive and motivation with our business that he started as a hobby (Keepin’ it Radio). In the Spring of 2014, I was trying to think of a way to bring in a little income on the side while being at home with my boy. In the back of my mind I always thought that maybe one day I’d venture in to a home bakery of sorts. At that time I decided to mention it to Dave and see what he said. He was all for it and very supportive as usual! I decided to start with selling homemade fudge, which I had started making because of Dave. One day I posted on Facebook, trying to get help with a name for this new venture of mine. Long story short, I mentioned that it was because of Dave that I even had the guts to try something like this. Next thing I knew, Because of You Confections was created! Because of my wonderful hubby, Dave!

Confections 

My confections include: specialty fudge, white/milk chocolate buckeyes, potato candy, chocolate covered pretzels, shaped chocolate candies, breads, cookies, and more!

How I Organized Our Junk Drawer in 15 minutes for $2

I have been driven crazy lately with how messy our junk drawer has been. I know, it’s a JUNK DRAWER. But, it can organized junk, right?

I’ve been on a mission lately to organize as much as I can to help with my sanity and to have a nicer looking home. :) Yesterday I had to go to the Dollar Tree and I decided to check out what they had that could benefit my organization plans. I’ve already used some of their products and have been happy so far.

Since I was surprisingly shopping alone, I was able to just browse at my own pace. I walked through almost every aisle in that store looking for things on my list and just simply for ideas for the many ‘projects’ I’ve given myself.

I found a few different items that I considered for my junk drawer organization. I settled on two things: – first, a three pack of rectangular baskets (great for pens!), and second, a three pack of small baskets. It was only $2, so if this didn’t pan out the way I visualized, I knew I could find a new use for them and not be concerned about the price.

This is how my drawer looked before I tackled it:

Messy Junk Drawer

This is how it looks now:

Organized Junk Drawer

We have a lot in our drawer, and I found quite a few things I thought we were out of, and even things that were basically useless and thrown out. I felt so much better afterwards. All it took was 15 minutes and $2.

Netflix to remove My Little Pony

Earlier this month Netflix released a list of shows they’ll be removed at the first of February. I just saw this list this week and our family is not too happy. One of the top shows that stuck out to us was My Little Pony. Our daughter has been into My Little Pony for a few years now and it’s one of her favorite things to watch. Even our son enjoys watching it with her!

I’ve already checked Hulu and it’s not available there. So, I’m browsing Amazon for DVDs so that our family can still enjoy some My Little Pony. Here are some of the DVDs I’m considering for my family.

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 1

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 2

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 3

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 4

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks
