well...a few crap things came home with me this week
..all of which create more for me to add to my "to-do" list....
those dollar bins went down to 4 for $1.00 so I stocked up on some notecards which I cover up the fronts with scrapbook paper and create regular notecards or birthday cards - a lot cheaper than buying the boxes of notecards that are blank...i plan to use these for valentine's cards.
and my twins have decided to have a Candyland themed 5th birthday party so these will help with invitations and favor boxes, with a little work added to them...
so i have a few crafts up my sleeve with those thrifty purchases
on to the mantel party at The Stories A 2 Z...
I had two very opinionated helpers today - one wanted balloons, one didn't; one wanted purple, the other didn't; one wanted to do it her way, the other could care less -
all in all, all three of us were smiling once it was completed.
Maddie tried so hard to form a heart with the beads hanging on the
fireplace handles...it's just the special touch I was looking for.
while i've got you in the mood, please check out my first blog party and join in on FEBRUARY 12
