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!

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.

Cherished custom creations: The Review.

Cherished custom creations: custom headband and name reveal bodysuits review.

The bodysuit design is beautiful and very well done. I have no doubt these outfits will outlast her time in that size and hold up well in her shadow box.

The headband is PERFECTION!
The monogram stands out so boldly and beautifully on the extremely soft purple headband fabric and is fit for a girl of any age.
I’m blessed to say my daughter has a wonderful village of people around her that pour so much love into what they create because they play a huge role in making her arrival even more momentous for us.

Thank you so much cherished custom creations! It has been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to more in the future!

Carla’s babycakes product review

I had the pleasure of working with ms. Carla on a beautiful diaper cake for a baby event we held this month!

Her service was fast, efficient and very friendly.  She made sure what she created met our needs and did so in beautiful fashion. 

To my surprise the delivery even came with a beautiful note

Her diaper cakes are well made, thoughtful and packaged with great care. Very portable and absolutely gift-able!

The designs are simple and sleek. Each creation is well thought out and uniquely designed. 

I’m very proud to say that I’ve worked with such a wonderful lady and had a beautiful centerpiece made by her featured at my event. 

I absolutely recommend that anyone who needs anything custom made for a gift or shower centerpiece contact her. She will get you exactly what you need with kindness and efficiency every time.

Omg crafts custom bow holder product review!

Before my daughter’s gender was ever even confirmed I reached out to beccah- owner of omg crafts for a custom bow holder creation, because my Overwhelming desire to bring a daughter earth-side manifested itself as a growing collection of bows that I needed a beautiful place to house. 

As with any omg craft production I was beyond satisfied. It was all I wanted and more. I was blown away!

She got the quality to match the beauty. 

The colors and accents were exactly what I wanted! 

You can tell time, pride and effort were put into this well thought out and executed bow holder. 

I LOVE that this can grow with our daughter. 

I love that even if not used as a bow organizer it has the potential to be used as a lovely accent piece for any females room – regardless of age. 

I can’t thank her enough for the amazing addition to our child’s room.

Omg crafts custom shelf product review!

Omg crafts custom sign & design review:

Beccah is a close personal friend of mine, mom of two beautiful kids, holds down a full time job and runs her own craft & creativity business called omg crafts which can be found on both Facebook and instagram!

Now, what I had her do is something she hadn’t really done before so it’s completely custom but she’s so impeccable she’s open to pretty much anything!

I unlisted her help on creating a unique home decor Christmas present for Skeeter and she DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

I wanted something that celebrated our family name that was also timeless. She established just that by giving me a beautifully stained hand made wooden wall decor accent piece that also has a shelf with small key hooks underneath. 

It’s sturdy, extremely well crafted, neatly stained and HAND PAINTED. 

I have absolutely no doubt that this is one custom craft that will not only withstand the test of time but surpass it. 

Presenting this to my love as we celebrated Christmas morning gave me such a wonderful sense of contentment. 

He could see how much thought and effort was put into something special for our home both on my part and in hers. 

Omg crafts provides a personalized warm experience with every item. Every conversation.  Every transaction. 

Purchasing from her insures not only friendly service and quality products but also supports a family not unlike yours and fuels a mother’s creative dream. 

(And she has the cutest little helpers making her creations to boot!)
