  • 2 Pom Poms
  • 1 piece of  orange felt
  • 1 long piece of felt (any color) for scarf

Star Wars Light Saber Valentines! #StarWars #TheForceAwakens #RogueOne #CandyFree #DIYValentines

The Force Awakens is all the rage with big and little boys.    My son wanted a Star Wars themed Valentine this year and since I make them every year, I had to oblige!   These are super fun and frugal!

First up, I designed the light saber hault.  I drew this image myself and then scanned it to use in the design.

Here is what you need:
  • Glow bracelets (Five Below has a tube of 50 glow bracelets for $5)
  • Printer that prints black and white
  • Clored cardstock
  • Scissors 
  • Hole punch
  • Tape

Use the template here.  It will open in a PDF.  Just hit print and watch light sabers come out of your printer!    Cut along the line.  Using a hole punch, punch one hole near the hault and then another a few inches down.

Weave the  bracelet in place.  Place a bracelet connector on one end  and then use a piece of tape to hold both ends in place.  Be careful when weaving as you may break a bracelet or two and they will start to glow!

Now you have a fun and candy free Valentine that will be a hit with your Star Wars fan!

Insurance Claim Nightmare: Does Your Insurance Company Really Have Your Back? #AD @clearsurance

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own!

Imagine returning from a vacation to find your house has been robbed, flooded, or covered in toxic asbestos and harmful fiberglass. I has happened to us! We can home from vacation to find out our house had been hit by lightening and every electronic you could imagine from an alarm clock to the the garage door opener had been fried. It was a nightmare dealing with our prior insurance company to get everything covered. They only gave a small amount up front and then made us pay for eveything out of pocket and when it was convenient for them, then they sent us a reimbursement.

This scenario happened to Todd Kozikowski's family as well. An unexpected home renovation error ended up costing his family their health, home, and resulted in long legal battles—all because the insurance carrier didn't provide the coverage the family thought it did.

Today, Todd has made it his mission to spare others from the same nightmarehis family experienced. He and his team recently launched Clearsurance the world's first company to level the playing field between big insurance and consumers.

I recently partnered with Clearsurance to help bring transparency to a traditionally secretive industry. Powered by 10,000+ customer reviews and industry-leading financial ratings, Clearsurance is the first ever 'Yelp' for auto, home, and renter's insurance.





It was easy to sign up and post my review of my insurance company on the Clearsurance website. All I had to do was go to www.clearsurance.com and fill out a short form—completely for free. By providing my personal insight, I could potentially save someone from a experiencing the same headache I went through when filing a claim.

I'd love to hear your experience dealing with an insurance company while filing a claim. Was the process smooth? Agonizing? Shocking? Head over to www.clearsurance.com, and leave a review on your insurance company. Who knows—your experience may save someone lots of trouble down the line.
