Gathering my thoughts and amazing deals

I’ve went four days without posting a blog. Ahhhh!! I’ve been so busy with classes and work I’ve hardly had time to think about creativity. Note: I said hardly. 🙂
I had an amazing find last night! I ran into Hobby Lobby to check out some new cake pans and found this awesome caddy for cake decorating!

As I looked at it I realized that there was no price tag and of course it was the only one. So I took it with me and my newfound cakepans (which were on clearance mind you) to the check out lane. The cashier finally got someone to answer her page for a price check and then we waited some more for the person to actually figure out what they were supposed to be looking for. Anyway, low and behold they priced it at $24.99. I was down with that and promptly pulled out a 40% off coupon to use with it, taking it down to roughly $15. Great right? Well, I was in a different Hobby Lobby today and just happened to see the same kind of tote that I had gotten last night. Any guesses on the price? $59.99!! Wow, they messed up!

On another note, I went out to dinner with a close friend of mine today and as we were sitting there eating I looked down at my plate and was struck by my muse. I had decided to try clam and had a couple mini type of shells on my plate. I thought, “Huh, I could do something with these.” With this thought I went back up to the buffet and loaded a plate with them in order to keep the shells. The empty shells are now soaking in my kitchen sink. Here’s my crazy friend playing with one. Haha, I love her.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with all these things, but I will think of something! Any ideas are welcome!


What am I doing?

I haven’t written in a couple of days so I thought I would do an update post. The pillowcases (I’m just about done with the first one) are pretty awesome. They’re cute and actually fun to do. I’m thinking about getting a leather thimble though because dang it my finger hurts. I highly recommend a cross stitch pattern for anybody who’s interested in getting a start at embroiderying.
I got a crapload of stuff at Wally World to use for a few projects that I have in mind for the next couple weeks. As I get each done, you know I’ll post it! I just hope I get time to work on them between classes, work and my kiddo. :-/
