Crafty Fun

I spent a few days doing crafts.  I really need to start doing more. 

I forgot to take a picture of the finished product, but I decopaged tea stained photos of myself and my siblings on one set, and just my husband on the other set to give to our moms.  :o) 

Letters for the girls' room.

Don't Fret the Sweat

Do you have tweens or kids who are quickly approaching tween years?  If so you know how critical self esteem is at this tender age.  Unilever, the makers of Degree, Dove and Suave deodorant offer support for these difficult times with Don't Fret the Sweat.

The tween years are full of changes.  Whether or not parents are ready, their kids’ bodies are trying to tell them something. Increased hormones are causing noticeable differences like growth spurts and strange new odors. But don’t let the unexpected stink scare you; it’s just a sign of great things to come. 
Unilever - the maker of Degree, Dove and Suave deodorants - wants to ensure parents and kids remain cool, calm and confident throughout the day - especially during those sweat-inducing moments.

Check out for money saving offers and expert tips, tools and real life stories about how parents are communicating and transitioning their tweens into confident and self-reliant teens.

Too. Many. Pictures. :o)

All free with Amazon from surveys

(and probably some from Swagbucks!)
Search & Win

This was forever ago..but I think I paid less than $1 for all of this and probably earned more than I spent back or I wouldn't have bought so much junk,  haha.

A fun craft I made for the girls room.  :o)

So, I spent .66 there and noticed some things rang up wrong.  Went back in (to Rite Aid) and got a $13.66 gift card for the difference.  Woot!

A free jug of laundry detergent for being a Purex Insider!

I  can't rememeber what I spent here...  I know the EOS lip stuff was free, as were the candy bars/M&Ms, jellybeans, and the toothpaste. 

Free after UPs!

$5.03 on a gift card!

Box of Spring Cleaning supplies from Bzz Agent and SC Johnson!

I won these Glow Naturals products from another blog giveaway, I *love* them. 

Spent .26, got $4!

.50 on a gift card!  Plus I got back $7.99 in a rebate!

Target freebie!!

PHEW, there I'm all caught up on here (at least with the pictures I took, haha). 

Long time no see!

Well, I have been a slacker over here.  I have a folder of pictures of my shopping adventures "to blog," but some of them are so old now I'm not sure I'll bother.  I'll have to go through them.

Here are a few I took today though.  :o)

3 babydoll t-shirts
3 dresses

All for the girls, of course.  :o)

The dresses were only $7 each, and the shirts were marked down to $3 on clearance. 

My total was $35.82 shipped, but I used PayPal so it was all FREE to me!  I get most of my PayPal for posts you see here that I've done through Social Spark

I got these cute shoes in the mail today from No More Rack.  Sign up there with my referral link and you should get a $10 credit!

I used credits and these were completely free!!  I was expecting them to be more matte.  I'm wondering if there is a way I can fix them so they're not such a shiny satin, but they're very cute.
