Crafty Birthday Wrap.

Hey hey it’s Friday!
And it just so happens to be my birthday.  I’ve got the day off, and the husband and I are goin’ the next county over to pick some apples.  And then we’ll meet up with my mom, my aunt Connie, and my uncle Joe at the Old Spaghetti Factory for lunch – yum.  Then tonight we’re having homemade pizza, shrimp wonton cups, birthday cake, and presents, with the 4 of us and my mom.  Should be a great day.

So what better day to share a birthday gift.  I wrapped up a little Coldwater Creek jewelry item to send for a belated birthday gift to my cousin down in New Mexico.  I sent her daughters some crafty-wrapped nail polish along with.

And if you follow my Adventures in Couponing, I’ve just got to tell you about my little Coldwater Creek caper.  So I bought a few things back in July when they had a free shipping promo, plus I had a $5-off coupon for subscribing to their e-mails.  So I got like 4 things for less than $10.  And then when the package came, it had this little coupon in it for $10-off my next $10 purchase.

So I ordered $10 worth of stuff, found another free shipping code online, and got some free stuff.  And they sent me another blue free $10 coupon.  And another.  Another.  Still another.  Yeah, you get the idea.  So all this stuff here – TOTALLY FREE – LOL!  Hey – if they’re going to send it to me,  I’m gonna use it!  Hello free Christmas presents for everybody!
