for the little man

Don't these just look so yummy. Well sorry but you can't eat them. They are crayons! My supplies were just a 64 count of crayons and a small candy mold. I melted the crayons and poured them into the mold. It was that easy. I am putting this is Skyler's stocking. I want to find a car candy mold and do a crayon box full of them for him! Crafty. Easy. Cute. and Cheap.

simple elagance

Last week I went over to my friend Carmen's house for a girls night...a much needed girls night! I saw a tutorial for this adorable Tree and KNEW I had to make them! What better time to make them than a girls night? We had Pamela (Carmen's sister) and their mom join us too! Let me just tell you these trees turned out so dang cute. I just can't stop looking at mine. They do take awhile to make, though. It ended up being a "two night girls night". Overall, I think they were really fun and simple. Go over to Shanty2Chic to see how to make them too! We also decided we are going to be trying to do a girls night every six weeks. Email me if you want to come play with us!

double that

Clint and I have got into coupon cutting. In Charlotte a lot of the grocery stores do double coupons. Which makes it worth it to us to buy the paper. We have saved a lot of money so for. Wednesday was the best yet.I went to the grocery store with my coupon book and got everything below...

How much do you think I payed for this? Just take a guess?

Yes, that's right people! payed $4.80 on what should have cost me $25. Total savings $21.
