Deb
So remember when I showed you my inexpensive finds back in like... oh I think it was October...?



Well, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with the blocks. They were a steal at Michaels for like $.20. But what to do with them??? So I decided on this.




Love them... and totally inexpensive. I used the spray paint I had left over from my "He is the Reason" signs, then I cut out the letters using my Cricut machine... love that machine. Then I went and decoupaged it with some Diamond Dust...a.k.a. glass glitter. I actually saw a set like this at Home Goods for like $15 a while back. Mine was waaaayyy cheaper. Don't you just love when you can do things yourself and save tons of money?

On another note... have you all been to the Dollar Tree lately? Lots of fun stuff there. I got some cute things that I am using in a not so normal way. I would show you now, but my camera battery just died so you have to wait until tomorrow. Super cute people. You'll be running to the Dollar Tree... trust me.

Okay, I'm off to read. My sister got me into a new set of books. The first one is called Outlander. Heard of it? If you have let me know what you thought of it.

Oh, and I'm thinking I may be giving one of my "He is the Reason" signs away...



What do you think? I'll be getting my stuff together this weekend to make some more, and I'm feeling awfully generous right now. So if you would like this fun sign for your home, leave me a comment. I'll be drawing a name on Sunday night, and the lucky person will be getting something special.

Now I'm off to read. Have a great night.
*ciao*

    Hey Deb! Where did you find your Diamond Dust? I'd like to get some of that! Can't wait to see your $ tree goodies! I haven't been there in a while. How is the book so far? And what is the series about? I need something new to read since I have to make myself take a break from the Twilight series! Please count me in on the drawing♥


  10. Oh my gosh, I had to stop and tell you how much I LOVE the Outlander series. One of my favorites of all time! And the best part is that there are still more books to come...so if you like it, you'll be set for reading for awhile. I think I've read the series three times since I discovered it a few years ago. Enjoy!! And let me know what you think of it, if you'd like. I've never met anyone else who has read the books before. :)

    Hey Deb! Thanks for your compliment on the mirrors in my bathroom but I must admit, if I had it to do over, I would have left the mirror that covered the entire wall....you know you can buy kits now that you can glue on to those mirrors to make them look expensive and "built in"....however, when we took down that mirror, we gave it away so I can't put it back up!

    Blessings to you at Christmas time!
