I should NOT be allowed out of the house

Because this is what happens...
A.C. Moore
and this...
Target Dollar Spot-what to do with that wipe off speech bubble??? I will think of something:)

and this...
seriously...and this...
(but I don't feel so bad because it was the score of the day for .84 cents)
Now I need to go back to Michaels and return the one I bought above...but I won't! I seriously have a problem have a plan for each and every single thing I bought! I have a bit of crafting to do:) 

Oh, I also stopped at Bath and Body words and took advantage of their 75% off sale! I love $3.00 hand soaps:)

This is that puzzle above from Michaels...
It was only $1.00! I don't have a use for it now, but I have a few ideas. I was thinking like a behavior incentive...putting the puzzle pieces together and they get a prize. I would have the kids decorate a piece or two the first week of school...so it really would be their puzzle! OR making a class rules on each piece and put it together and frame it. So many ideas I could do:)

Look at these...aren't they so cute!

They are little note card holders. Each one has 400 plain white cards in them...and get this...only $1.00! I love Michael's dollar section! Well, they didn't have an R on any of them so I made my own when I got home. This is what I am going to do with them:) Do you like it?

I hope the kids love this idea:) I also today finally got my digital frame my hubby gave me two years ago for Christmas up and running! I placed all our wedding pictures on it. I am sitting here typing watching my wedding album. It is awesome...I heart my hubby:)

Well...now back to some crafting and such! Hubby is at his clinical real late tonight! I probably won't see him until after 8pm! This Cardiology program is really tough! I could not be more proud of my hubby! I CAN'T wait until he is done with grad school at the end of the month! I pray for him that he finds a job right away as a cardiologist! Positive thoughts, positive thoughts:)


  1. I love all your stuff! Now I need to get to Michael's and Target to get my own speech bubble and puzzle. I automatically thought the speech bubble would be a perfect thing to teach the kids about quotation marks, and I want the puzzle to have each kid write their own name on the first day of school (We all fit together type of thing.) Thanks for sharing!

  6. Wow!! I wish our target had a dollar section :( All thing things other people get looks so awesome!! Good job on your cheap finds!! An idea for the puzzle, you could have every child decorate a piece with their names and do a bulletin board that says something like welcome to ___ grade, we all fit in. Saw something like that on pinterest!

    1. Oh thank you! I hope so too! It has been a long year with him going full time and taking a leave from his job! I am hopeful he will get a job right away. He is doing a sudy under a very well known Cardiologist right now...hopefully it will be a good foot in the door:) OR a good reference:)

  12. Love your finds :)
