I heart a fabulous deal!

As a stay at home mom, I make it my job to save as much money as I can. I love Goodwill, Deseret Industries, and places like Children's Orchard, Kid 2 Kid, etc. for saving big on kids clothes. A couple weeks ago my local Children's Orchard had a great sale. Fill a bag of select clothes for only $5! 

I ended up with 2 bags full of cute clothes for my boy. I got a total of 24 pieces for $10 plus tax. That's about 42 cents each! You cannot beat that!
 Most of the pieces were Old Navy
 with an H&M
 baby Gap and Pottery Barn Kids mixed in!

I just had to tell someone. My husband doesn't quiet understand just how awesome it feels to save big like that. Well now back to wrapping presents and other final touches for Christmas. Have a safe and Merry Christmas!!

The Circle Skirt

I love the site MADE. Dana has so many wonderful ideas and tutorials. About a month ago I made a circle skirt from the tutorial on her site. I opted for the 2" elastic and kinda think the 3" would have looked cuter, but it seemed so huge in the store. I got my fabric at none other than the D.I. (Deseret Industries- it's like Goodwill/Salvation Army, etc). The fabric is a silk-y type material. It turned out really cute despite the fact that I made it.

 And it twirls... :-D

Well there are a couple other projects I haven't posted, but they'll have to wait until after Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone! I probably won't be back until after the New Year so happy New Year 2011!

Snowflake cuteness

So here's one of the projects I haven't shared yet, well I haven't shared the update on it. When I originally shared this project a reader commented that their friend had done this project as well and had added snowflakes and ribbons to theirs. Such a fabulous idea!

I just used a $1 snowflake stencil from Walmart and white paint I had on hand. So simple, but it makes all the difference! 


 I still need some cute stockings. That probably won't happen until next year.

And here's a look at our cute little Christmas tree...The lights would have drowned the poor tree so I just put some silver mini ric-rac and some dollar store mini ornaments. The Noel ornament was left over from my wreath. Actually it broke so I left it off the wreath, but did my best to revive it for the tree.
