Major Savings at Michael's

I've only just recently started couponing, but I've always been a girl who loves a good deal.  I mean, don't we all?

Well if you're looking for some good craft deals, you need to hightail it to Michael's.  I went there yesterday to get some supplies for Mer's shower and a couple's shower I helping host and decided to check out the sales advertised in the Sunday paper as well.  I have to say, I feel like I hit the motherload.

I walked out with a total of $27.82 and a savings of $40.01!  Let me show you what all I got.

Here's the rundown:
6 Memory/Photo boxes-I love to use these instead of photo albums.  They are much more stylish and efficient with space.  They are also great for hiding and storing any unsightly things you might need within reach.  Here they are displayed on our desk in our old house.  At a price of 6/$10 I just couldn't pass them up.  They are regularly $4 each.

4 spools of ribbon-All half off.  These will be for food labels and decoration.
16 sheets of scrapbook paper-They were 6/$1, normally .59 each.  I'll use these to create a banners like these.

1 ball of yarn-I used my 50% off coupon from their flyer.  This will be used to make the wreath mentioned here
1 pack of lollipop sticks-I used another 50% coupon from online.
2 stamps-On sale for $1 each.
20 foam brushes- These were 20/$1, regularly .39 each.  I thought they'd be great for craft projects, craft parties (I need to host one of these for my girlfriends) or for a kids party or playtime.

Not too bad for less than $30 right?  I'm very pleased considering what the total would if not for the sales and coupons ($67.83).  I'd say that's a success.  All of the deals run through Saturday, so go check them out!

Alright, now I'm off to work to on some projects with my new supplies!

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
