Scotch’s new Expression
s Tape is simple and fun to use to decorate and personalize our space. I did a couple of projects, which only took me a few minutes. Scotch Brand from 3M introduced their new Scotch Expressions Tapes in more than 100 colours and patterns and four types of tape; Magic, Washi, masking and shipping. The tapes have become the newest way to personalize projects. The versatility of this line of tape gives projects an added dimension.

Command 3M products are very handy around our home, as it helps us stay organized. I use their traditional hooks and mini hooks in many places around our home. I am starting to think of ways to organize and get everything ready before school starts in September. I like that Command Clear products help us clear up clutter, keep wires in order and make the most of small spaces. They are stylish, easy to use and do not damage the surface it is placed.
We don't need nails, screws and tacks when we use Command™ Clear products they make it fast and easy to hang and clear clutter. The revolutionary Command™ Clear Adhesive Strip holds strongly on a variety of surfaces, including paint, wood, tile and more. It removes cleanly without making holes, marks, or sticky residue.
The advantage of using Command™ Clear Strip allows us to seamlessly show our decor, without the hooks and clips being visible. Rehanging them is as easy as applying a replacement Command™ Clear Strip, so we can take down, move and reuse them again and again.
They have a variety of clear transparent Command™ products such as Medium hooks, mini hooks, decorating clips, flat cord clips, round cord clips and utensil hooks. I just wish the packaging it comes allows to store the clips back in it until we need to use it again, since all the packages need to be saved for instructions such as the surfaces it can be placed etc.
We are giving away 3 back-to-school Command™ prize packs valued $50. Your prize package will include a variety of fabulous Command products. Win 1 of 3 prize packages before August 26th by entering the rafflecopter below, this giveaway is open to everyone in Canada.

One of the things we like to do during winter holidays are making crafts and hanging them up on the windows. We usually have a hard time hanging these crafts because the tape and suction cups that we have used in the past fall off easily due to humidity on the windows. After we used command hooks to hang crafts, we found that it was easy for us to hang our crafts the way we like without damaging them.
Some craft ideas to place on the windows are stained glass sun catcher or this Paper towel roll flowers and stars.
To make these shiny hanging ornaments you will need...
Paper towel or toilet paper roll
different colour glitter
Cut the paper towel roll into 1/2 or 1/4" thickness. Then arrange it to make a flower or star shape. Glue the pieces to attach and secure it with clothespins for a few minutes until it holds together.
Then remove the clothespins and cover the entire flower or star with modpodge and sprinkle coloured glitter all over it. It is better to protect the working surface with newspaper as this could be messy :)
Let it dry completely before hanging.
To hang these crafts on the wall and window we used the Command mini hooks that hold about 1/2 lb. These handy hooks came in a pack of 18 hooks with 24 small strips, which helped us hang crafts and holiday lights on our window. We also used cord clips to keep the holiday lights organized. These cord clips come in a pack with 4 clips and 5 small strips.
I found it easy to remove and replace the position of the hooks, as I didn't want them on the initial spot I placed them. Once we remove the hooks we have to put another small strip when placing it in a different location, this is why Command has extra strips in each packet :)
There are a variety of hooks such as medium hook, medium and large brushed nickel hooks that are useful to hang a variety of things around our home such as bags, towels, brooms etc.
Command also has general purpose large outdoor hooks that hold about 5 lbs., which comes with 2 water resistant strips so we can hang things indoor or outdoor.

I like using Command Traditional 3M hooks because there are easy to use and handy to organize many things around our home.
Having proper reliable tools help us to stay organized. With Command 3M hooks we can organize and decorate without damaging the walls. There are so many possibilities on how we can use these hooks. The hooks work on all types of surfaces i.e. painted surfaces, wood, tiles and more. I placed the Command Traditional hook behind the washroom door to hang towels, and like how strong the hooks are, as it can hold up to 5 pounds.
It is easy to use the Command Traditional medium hook to hang seasonal and holiday decorations i.e. novelty lights, streamers, balloons. We can remove the hooks when we no longer need it, and save it for next time. This medium hooks can hold up to 3 pounds.
The hooks can be easily removed without damaging the walls. The hooks don't leave holes or tacky oily residue that affects the paint. 3M's patented stretch release adhesive technology is strong, secure and damage free.
To remove, slide the hook up and pull the tab about 12" straight down and then release the base from the wall. The hooks come with two strips. When we no longer need the hook in the initial place we put, remove, clean the back with rubbing alcohol (don't use any other type of cleaners), dry the hook and attach the strip with the red adhesive liner to the hook and the black adhesive liner to the wall. Ones we put the hook on the surface, we have to press firmly for 30 seconds and then let it stay for an hour before hanging anything.
