Lyons Den Designs – custom timeout chair product review.

Tatorthoughts recently collaborated with Samantha from Lyons den designs and y’all have got to see the magic she’s got up her sleeves!

I had the pleasure of working with her to customize two IKEA MAMMUT Time out Chairs.  They are ADORABLE! Samantha did her thing and took two basic white chairs and make them something any parent could be proud for their child to have even if it is for time out. 

Fear not, these chairs are a blank slate for Lyons den designs you can personalize them to fit your child’s interests, if you can think it Samantha can make it. Her attention to detail is impeccable. Her dedication to her work is top-tier! But just when you think it can’t get any better it does! Her customer service is incredible, seriously one of the best I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. 

Assembly was a breeze. 

It took me less than 12 minutes to assemble both chairs even with my dexterity and coordination that more often than not leaves much to be desired. 

No tools required, they truly are align, click & go. 

If these chairs can fairly comfortably hold a 5”5 adult woman I have no doubt they’ll take almost any beating a child of time out chair age (let’s say 2-8 years old for the sake of the review) can deliver. 

These are chairs any child would be proud to own. Though they may be for time out they don’t have to be ugly. 

Unlike Agatha Trunchbull, we don’t believe time out should be in a dark damp corner or the infamous “chokey.”

Timeout is a time of self-reflection used to discern how a child can make better decisions but it surely doesn’t have to always be an ugly or even a completely negative thing. After all, children are just small people, learning to navigate the world the same way we as adults do. 

Around here we do 1 minute for every year of age for the length of timeout. We explain, sit and explain again. It’s more of a constructive teaching opportunity than punishment.  Samantha has you covered though! With the option of a removable, working timer you can set it without worries of forgetting it! She went so far as to include velcro command strips in our package! (Talk about customer service!)

Cut, peel, stick DONE! 

We’ve placed ours on the back of the chair, out of sight and fairly well out of reach of those that will sit in these little seats. 

They’re sturdy, visually appealing, super easy to assemble, and a constructive learning tool for growing minds and big hearts with big emotions. These are a perfect addition to our quiet thinking spot & you really can’t go wrong. You can personalize them any way you like to best fit your family’s needs. Send her a pm.

But these aren’t all she makes! Head on over to Lyons Den designs and let her make you something fabulous, tell her Tatorthoughts sent ya!

Custom shirt product review!

I’m back at it again with another reason to love Justine’s words that stick! These shirts are INCREDIBLE.. let me go in on a backstory here.. yes I had her make two shirts for me which one I wear depends on the crowd I’m in. Sure traditionally husband & wife shirts are sold in pairs to match but depending on who you ask I’m someone’s wife but to others I’m wifey- a sarcastically originated comment, turned term of endearment.
Now that you’re all caught up on why there’s three let me tell you how much we love them.. ALOT
you’d think it’d be hard to capture such personality in something so seemingly simple but she’s managed to do it YET AGAIN. SURPRISED?.. I’m not!
I couldn’t capture my own photos to rightfully do her work justice but she exceeded all expectations again!
The vinyl won’t crack and these shirts will last a long long time. There’s no overwhelming smell like some custom items I’ve received which is a total plus because nobody wants to walk around smelling like chemicals even after wash.
Speaking of wash, they do it well (I crack myself up, sometimes.)
If you can dream it she can do it I suggest you reach out! Y’all know where to find her! Go get some gear you won’t be disappointed!

Justine’s words that stick custom embroidered Easter basket product review.


I recently partnered with a wonderful Home school mom Justine, business owner of justine’s words that stick!
Not only is she beyond sweet her creative talents are bar none!
I was blessed with the opportunity to review an embroidered and yes I said embroidered Easter basket for her and I’ve gotta say, I’ve reviewed a lot of items.. ALOT quite a few of which never actually made it in front of you guys on the blog because quality didn’t live up to expectations but this basket DEFINITELY DOES!
As you may have guessed I’m a huge sucker for traditions and this Easter basket is one tradition I know my daughter will carry with her for years to come as we celebrate the Easter holiday festivities.
I’ve seen a lot of embroidery.. most leave so much to be desired but the quality of my daughter’s beautifully embroidered name surpassed all expectations I could’ve had.
These baskets are deep, sturdy and spacious. You cannot go wrong!
There’s so much up this creative gals’ sleeve I doubt anyone could put an idea in front of her that she couldn’t pull off, I so look forward to working with her more in the future and continuing to bring you guys the impeccable product reviews you crave I absolutely love showcasing people’s talents and giving others the opportunity to shop small and support dreams.
