Resources for a Busy Mom!

There aren’t enough hours in the day, right? With work, helping the kids with their homework, preparing meals, cleaning up after everyone and putting yet another load of laundry on, there’s very little time for sleep – let alone DIY and crafting!

But do you look at that bare wall in the den and that tatty tablecloth on the kitchen table, and just wish you had a few hours to do something about them? Or do you browse through those wonderful crafting successes on Pinterest and think to yourself that “one day” you’ll have a few more minutes to yourself so that you too can create something incredible?
You’re not alone – there’s a huge community of people out there who are feeling just as frustrated as you are!

MM: Marriage Monday {How to Make a Romance Basket}

When Ruben and I first got married, we made time for romantic endeavors.  It's quite easy in the beginning, but romance in marriage can become stale as the years go on.  Life happens.  It becomes more challenging to keep a romantic mindset when kids are around and the bills need to be paid.  I totally get that.  However, when the fire is out, your marriage suffers.  Keeping romance alive in your marriage shouldn't be a chore.  It can be fun, easy and affordable.  You just need to take creative action.  

One way is to make a Romance basket. 


Romance baskets are perfect for Valentines Day, getaways, anniversary celebrations, honeymoon gifts and date nights.   They can even be used at home behind closed bedroom doors once the kids are asleep.  It's great because it only takes a little bit of time to put it together.  Most of the items can be bought at discount stores or found in your own stash.   No excuses, it's time to get romantic! 

Simply fill a basket or container of your choice with: 

  • 1 bottle of your favorite beverage.  I like sparkling apple cider. 
  • 2 plastic champagne flutes
  • 1 candle 
  • 1 body lotion
  • 1 body wash or bath salts
  • Rose petals, which you can sprinkle in a bath, or make a heart on the bed.  Who wouldn't love to lay in a bed full of rose petals?  
  • Most of all, some chocolate!  

I believe a romantic evening with your spouse should include:  pampering, creativity, and intimacy.  A romance basket encourages all of this!  

Get creative.  Romance hat boxes and romance totes can be filled with these goodies too, so use what you have.  

Don't forget the romantic music.  I created a romance playlist on my iTunes that's always ready to go!
  
Give it away.  Also, if you're giving a romance basket as a gift, wrap it up with shrink wrap and finish off with a bow.  I add a pretty tag which you can download for free here.  

Don't let your budget stop you from being creatively romantic with your spouse.  Believe me, once you make your romance basket, you'll want to use it over and over again.  

Blessings and Shalom,
