Photography Challenge: Days 4 and 5

I had to catch up a little because I was hardly home yesterday, and today was pretty busy as well! I finally got a couple of pictures for my two days though!! Day 4 was Something Green, and Day 5 was After Dark! Here are my two photos!! Day 4 Day 5 My photo from Day 4 is a view of our backyard and the mountain. The Day 5 photo is from the "After Dark In the Dark" egg hunt we had tonight! The girls just LOOOOVED that!! They had a lot of fun trying to find all the glow in the dark eggs! I got the idea from.........yep, you guessed it......Pinterest!! Love that sight!! I took glow stick bracelets and put them inside plastic easter eggs.....it was a hit! Even hubby said, wow, that was a great idea! Well, that's about it for tonight! Happy Easter weekend to you all and I pray that you all get to spend the weekend with your family, loved ones, or special friends! Take care and God bless! Lisa

Day 3 - Clouds

Well, today is day 3 of the photography challenge issued by my friend Laurie!! Today's subject for a photo was clouds..........well, believe it or not, there wasn't a cloud in the sky today......a lot of snow, but no clouds!! haha!! Soooooooo, Laurie told us to try to be creative.......normally I don't have tooooo much of a problem being creative, but for some reason, it just wasn't there today......that is, until tonight......I walked around our house looking at things and then I saw my kitchen border....Thomas Kinkade cottages and country roads and.....CLOUDS!! WooooooHooooooo!!! Now, tomorrow is something green........I'll have to find something unconventional for this one......don't want to do the normal grass, or money, or crayons.....Hmmmmmm!! I'm sure I'll figure out something! Well, other than the photography challenge, I moved my scrapbook area from our sunporch to our bedroom......soooooo glad that is finally done!! I've enjoyed it in the sunporch, but, I'd rather have that room has a relaxing space.....and when my scrap table is messy and such.....It just doesn't make for a "relaxing" space, lol!! Maybe I'll take some pics tomorrow during the daylight after EVERYTHING is all nicely organized and set up! Well, that's about it for tonight! Peace be with you all! Lisa

Inspired to Scrap!

What a friendly little Scrapbooking place on the world wide web.......... Inspired to Scrap! I just finished a week long cyber crop there.........it was sooo much fun and I even got 4 pages finished! If you know me, that's pretty good as of lately! lol!! I've been on a cleaning and organizing kick again around this house so I haven't had much time to sit and scrap or craft or anything.....but, I did this past week! A little sit down time did me some good!! This was the first challenge: we had to make a layout from a sketch! The second challenge was called Flash Back: we had to find a challenge from the previous year on the Inspired to Scrap site to use. I chose the Jan. '12 Wave challenge This page we had to take one of our own pages and "scraplift" it......the page I chose is right below this one! This is the page that I used to scraplift from! This page we had to make our own little flags to put on our page! I liked making these little flags! I'm hoping to continue scrapping and crafting every once in awhile........Inspired to Scrap is a wonderful place with friendly people and LOTS of inspiration to boot!

Coupon Savings

Well, today was another fine day for my coupon savings!! I'm still not saving as MUCH as I'd like to yet, but it's still quite a bit!! I guess I'm secretly hoping to be one of THOSE EXTREME COUPONERS!! haha!! Some day!! Here are my pictures of what I got today! (Some of the items that HAD to be refrigerated or frozen were put away!!) CVS Walmart TOPS (quite a few of the meats were put away and so were the eggs!) For CVS today: Total before savings was $24.21 ..... after savings $13.80 tax included. Walmart's total before savings was $74.26 ..... after coupons $55.99. Tops Market total before savings was $212.03 ..... $128.65. I'm slowly getting the hang of this new system of using coupons..... one of these days hopefully I can say that I saved over 50%!! I know I'm getting close, but not fast enough!! hahahaha!! Pretty soon I'm going to have to get a new binder for all my coupons, the one I have is getting a little small! Some of the great deals I got today: free mccormick gravy mix, all 8 boxes of the Fiber One bars ended up being $1 per box, 2 out of 4 cake mixes were free and the other 2 were only $1 each, 1 renuzit freshener was free, the new velveeta skillet meals were .98 cents a piece, one frank's red hot was free, dole parfait's were $1 each, and my favorite deal were the two Starbucks pkgs. of coffee which ended up being only about $4.50 each (normally they are at least $7.99 and hubby goes through ALOT of Starbucks!!) Well, thanks for checking in with me today.......maybe one day I can teach you all how to do this too! I'm having fun while trying to get the best deals too!! Okay, gotta go for today! Take care and God bless!
