Berry Baskets, Part 1 {GIVEAWAY}

I have something so exciting in store for you today!!! I am sharing my new obsession with you

BERRY BASKETS!!!

Yes, berry baskets! I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to them. You can see it HERE.

Before I get into the details of the cute things they are filled with, I have some good news! Glacier Valley is giving 20 of these DARLING blue berry baskets to two lucky winners! All you have to do to enter, is:

1) Like Glacier Valley on facebook. The link is HERE. One entry.
2) Visit Glacier Valley's website HERE, and tell me in a comment what you like. One entry.
3) Follow my blog. One entry.
4) Like restlessrisa on facebook HERE. One entry.

So, you get four entries in all. The drawing is open now (to people in the continental United States), and closes at 9pm Friday, May 11.
(Please leave your name and contact info in your comments, so I can get a hold of you after you win.)

A word about Glacier Valley. I was BLOWN away by all the packaging products they carry. My head was spinning! They have a basket or container for any need! If you don't feel you need a large quantity of something, you can e-mail them to request a catalog, or a smaller quantity quote, but I say go in on it with a friend/s (or not), and get the large order! It will be SO MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE than ordering them individually on etsy for example. Did I mention the owners are so very nice? Well, they are. Check them out! You will be so happy you did!

Now for the cuteness!!!

This basket is extra fun and full of paper strawberries that can be filled with candy or sweet little notes! The template for the strawberries is found HERE. This would work great for any occasion, including a teacher appreciation gift!


This basket works as a deep cleaning chore organizer for the year. You could also use it for coupons, or anything you have that you want to file. It was made using scrapbook paper cut to fit into the berry basket, a flower punch, circle punch, hand written labels, and mini clothespins from the craft store.


For the mom in your life who loves jewelry, give her some berries she can wear!



This darling little printable will melt her heart.

My son is turning eight this month, and we are having a family luncheon for him in June, where I will be serving some of his favorite foods. How much more adorable is it if the foods he likes are all packaged nicely in a berry basket? Notice the two donuts on the skewer make the number 8? Yes, he loves junk food :)


 You can make your own tag with your child's favorite things listed as well! I made mine in picasa using a free chevron background I found HERE. I will say it again, the background is free! Don't you love it when people share the chevron love!

Wouldn't it be fun if you were planning a date night for your significant other, and left this little basket filled with everything you need for s'mores in his or her car in the morning, inviting him/her on a date with you? It would even be fun for a family night! The marshmallows are strawberry shaped and chocolate filled (from Wal-mart). Perfect for a berry basket!


Berry candy is perfect for a berry basket as well!I picked these up at Ben Franklin in Kaysville, UT.


It would be so fun to give a grandchild, niece, nephew, or one of your kids friends a basket filled with fresh or candy berries, and a copy of this DARLING book, Blueberries for Sal? It is one of my favorites. You can preview it HERE. It is SO ADORABLE!

I have another giveaway opening tomorrow, and will be showing these and more berry basket ideas on Studio 5 on Wed. this week. I hope you will come back for tomorrow's giveaway, and tune into Studio 5 Wed. at 11, channel 5 (if you are in Utah). If not, I will post a link to my segment on line the same day.

Please tell your friends about this giveaway, and don't forget to enter!!!

Have a Happy and Creative Day!!!
