Spring Into Easter with Crayola!

Disclosure: I was provided with products from Crayola in exchange for my honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

My 13 year old son Drew loves rockets, space and drawing. When you combine those 3 things together, his imagination can run wild! One of our favorite tools for drawing has always been Crayola products. They offer a wide variety of crayons, pencils and markers that can make any drawing come to life!

Crayola recently introduced several new Signature Series products for 2019 and we were excited to try some of them! These products would be great fillers for those Easter baskets! I love that Crayola is always expanding their lines and bringing art to a new level!

Crayola has expanded its premium line of sophisticated art tools, Crayola Signature, with a new line of Pearlescent tools and Gallery Wall kit! Innovative, sleek and elegant, Crayola Signature products elevate coloring tools to a new level of artistry. Perfect for enthusiasts, crafters and hobbyists alike, the markers, colored pencils, paints and kits in this new line are designed for amazing results. The premium packaging includes a decorative and durable tin adorned with art actually created with the tools inside — truly creativity inspired!

There are 4 new products to Crayola Signature line which include:

Signature Pearlescent Acrylic Paint (SRP: $14.99) Crayola Signature Pearlescent Acrylic Paints offer vibrant colors that give off a shimmery gloss finish. Containing a multidimensional pigment that provides superior coverage, the set includes mixing wells for easy color blending and comes with 16 Acrylic Paints and 3 re-usable paint mixing trays in a decorative storage tin.

Signature Pearlescent Cream Sticks (SRP: $14.99) Crayola Signature Pearlescent Cream Sticks offer 10 creamy colors in a smooth formula that’s perfect for fine art or craft projects. These versatile art tools can be used dry or add a bit of water for blending and work great for other effects like edging, large area shading and water color effects like spritzing or dripping.

Signature Pearlescent Paint Markers (SRP: $19.99) Crayola Signature Pearlescent Paint Markers offer robust colors in a satin, gloss finish. They are perfect for hand lettering and other projects on light or dark paper — as well as glass, plastic, ceramic and more.

The set features Signature Pearlescent Paint Markers and Gel Sticks to add a special touch or shimmery finish.

Drew was excited to choose the Crayola Signature Pearlescent Cream Sticks and the Signature Pearlescent Paint Markers. I was amazed at how vibrant the pigment was in the markers and the cream sticks are so cool as they can be used dry or wet! If you have a budding artist in your house, these items would be great additions for their Easter basket!

Review of the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set

Disclosure: I was provided with the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to start each morning with is a breakfast of eggs. Whether they be scrambled, hard-boiled, over easy or even poached, I love eggs! They are such a great source of protein and energy to get my going in the right direction.

When my friend Leah, who is a Tupperware Consultant, offered to let me review the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set, I was super excited to do so! This set allows you to make omelets, oatmeal and even french toast right in the microwave in just minutes! As a busy mom, this is right up my alley! Would you believe that I was able to make that gorgeous omelet in the picture above in the microwave? Yes, it is that easy! I simply added my veggies and 2 eggs to a bowl mixed them up and added them to the breakfast maker. I placed it in the microwave for around 2 1/2 minutes and voila! The perfect omelet! I can’t wait to try french toast for my boys!

With the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set, you will receive a 1 3/4 cup breakfast maker and two Egg inserts that will allow you to make poached eggs and egg patties. Priced at just $29, I believe that this is a great value for the money considering you will use it multiple times a week. There is no reason to not cook a quick healthy breakfast! The Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set is dishwasher safe AND comes with a Lifetime Warranty. If for any reason it cracks, splits or peels, Tupperware will replace it for free! Wow-that is an awesome guarantee! 

How would you like to try the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set for FREE? Yes you read that right! Right now when you book a Tupperware party with my friend Leah (it is easy to do and can be done right online) you will get one for FREE!

If you are interested in hosting a party with Leah or have other questions about Tupperware, please contact her, HERE. There are lots of other incentives when you host a party like hostess credit and half-price items so don’t hesitate to contact her.

I think that you will enjoy the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set as much as I do and get a lot of use out of it! It really is a great item to have in your kitchen and will save you so much time!

Meatball Pizza Flatbreads

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I love to stock up on meatballs at BJ’s Wholesale Club or when Publix has them on sale BOGO. I always have several bags in in my freezer at all times as you can really do so much with them! Have you tried my Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour meatball recipe? That is a delicious and easy recipe that my family loves!

Over the weekend we made Meatball Pizza Flatbreads and they were so delicious! This recipe requires very few ingredients, and the end result is amazing! If you love pizza, then you will love these flatbreads! It is a nice change from regular pizza!

INGREDIENTS:

1 twin-count package of pizza crusts- these are more of a flatbread consistency/texture than pizza crust. (I found mine at BJ’s Wholesale Club, but I have seen these at other stores as well)

1 jar of sweet basil pasta sauce (I used Classico-it was on sale BOGO this week. TIP: I always stock up and add several jars to my pantry when it is on sale to have on hand for quick dinners.)

3 cups of shredded, mozzarella cheese

1/2 container of plum tomatoes, halved (this is optional. I only used tomatoes on one of the flatbreads)

14-15 fully cooked meatballs, halved

Half container of fresh basil, chiffonade

Italian seasoning for taste

Olive Oil for drizzling (I used this delicious Garlic infused variety from Fody Foods that I found at Sprouts last week)

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread the pasta sauce evenly between the two pizza crusts. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese, then add the tomatoes, and meatballs. Sprinkle Italian Seasoning over both crusts and drizzle with olive oil to give the crusts a nice golden brown texture and crunch. Bake at 350 degrees for around 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Place the fresh basil over the top of each Meatball Pizza Flatbread.

Serve and Enjoy! There won’t be leftovers, I promise!
