    Anyone else happen to catch the show last night? Right around 10:30pm CST to after midnight. I was just heading to bed, and as per usual, I peeked out the window to check the sky. Well, I didn't have time to go anywhere to set up, so for something completely different, I set up the tripod in...
  2. Valentine's day
    Do you give Valentine's gifts? I know that some say no, as they think this is a contrived holiday, and want no part in it. Others go all out. We do cards. Ever since I was a little girl, I've made homemade valentine cards: you know ..... with the doilies and red construction paper.... They...
  3. Valentine's day
    So, what frugal Valentine gifts are you giving this year? I am making my husband white chocolate peppermint bark (with leftover candy canes! lol) and some home made chocolate chip cookies. I will go out and buy some kind of tin or something for $1 to put them in. For my kids I am still deciding...

I've made these in the last couple of years at different times. Have the stuff to do a red/white/blue for July 4th. ***btw I found the patterns for...

  8. Valentine's day
    Anyone ready for this yet? :) Thinking about something similar to the Christmas gift exchange, but with two twists: 1) Valentine's Day related vs Christmas related, and 2) a one-to-one exchange. So rather than making 32 of each thing, you'll be given your "Secret Cupid" name, and will make...

    I bought a bunch of the Valentine m+m's, and the cherry cordial hershey kisses, for Easter, at 1/2 off original price because they were 'Valentine's candies'. My 5+ 2 yo's could care less what colors their candies are! Also got 2 of the 'giant' hershey kisses for stocking stuffers- I assume...

    A few days ago, I swiped 2 pr. of Dh's underwear & on one of them, using red fabric paint, put handprints on the butt. The other one I drew little pink glittery hearts all over the front. I manage to hide them while they dried out in the garage. Anyway,after they had dried, I folded them so they...
