A bit of this and that…..

I have been busy looking at Pinterest and my favorite blogs and came up with some great ideas…..

first of all I want to show you some of the items I got at Michaels in the dollar bins….there has been quite a few posts about their recent stash….very Cath Kidston like and of course Mary E!

But I saw these stamps for just a dollar and I really like the graphics….

And the cupcake liners, which I just love to have, I haven’t made cupcakes in months and months…..

I was just at Kathy’s Cottage and look what she did with them…..

Here is another idea I like as it uses the old vintage jar look….

A jar full of cupcake liners

I just found out for the Valentine Swap I joined, my partner is a good friend of mine!  Love it!  Look out Joyce, you get to be my partner! LOL

Have a great weekend, what are you doing to get organized or de cluttered????  I am thinking about it! But that’s as far as I have gotten so far….LOL

 

UPDATE:  These items were 1.50!!!!  I think that is nuts!  I wrote Michaels a letter explaining how they always seem to ruin a good thing!  50% increase???  I don’t think so!  All of those dollar bins items are great money makers…..this is a shame, because it will change how I buy things there from now on…I think we all need to go to the Michaels site and complain.

Oh Sandy - your post on the cupcake liners sent me dashing to Micheals where I got LOTS of cupcake liners and some ME stuff too. I didn't see those stamps so I'll have to make another trip there - oh darn - I did end up making a garland with the liners - you can see it on my blog. Thanks for enabling me - LOL!

Michael's Dollar bins are the BEST. I own way too much stuff from them, often that I have no idea what to do with. Your display of the cupcake liners inspires me - where's my piggy bank, I know I have some dollar bills in there.
