Today I’m participating in the Glue Dots and Buttons Galore & More Blog Hop.
Hop along with us for great Graduation, and Father’s Day ideas!
I got to work with this fun set of buttons.
And I made a little gift bag for my son’s graduation from 5th grade. They go to a new school for 6th grade, so it’s kind of a big deal.
I also made a Father’s Day card for my father-in-law. I think buttons on man cards are like sequins on girl cards.
Thanks for stopping by, now head to Anita Scroggins’ blog to see what fun, button craft she’s made.

So yeah. A little behind on sharing my saves on Sunday. Life (work) is so unbelievably cray right now. OK, I said that before, moving on….
Up today is total freeness from Rite Aid. Last month I transferred (2) prescriptions over there and got $25 for each prescription = $50 to play with on top of other +Up monies that I already had. So I used that money on things that would continue to make me money. Got the $50 for free, bought things that were on sale, had coupons, and earning +Up money back on those so that I could keep rolling.
These chips were on sale for $1, but for every (10) you bought, you got $3 back.
The Beggin’ Strips netted me $1 back per bag, and that Fresh & Sexy stuff (what will they think of next?) netted me $2.51 per.
All the oral care stuff ended up “costing” 25-cents, but remember I’m paying with their money so it was all free to me after factoring in coupons, +Ups back and the original +Ups that I paid with. Just noticed I have the oral care in with the candy in this shot – LOL; free candy too.
They also had a grocery clearance going, so I stocked up on $1 boxed goods and 20-cent canned goods while not spending any of my own money.
This morning I had $58 in +Ups to go in and spend at Rite Aid. I left with about half that. Got a bunch of stuff without spending my own money. AND, I’ve got (2) more prescriptions to transfer today – hot diggety! Have a great Sunday!

I read something on someone’s blog recently about a lot of the cards that they make for the magazines aren’t really ones that they would actually give to someone. And I thought about it, and I was all smarty-smart like yeah, I totally always make cards for magazines that I would give to someone for real. And then I found this one in my folder. Um. Yeah. What I’mma do with this card? I mean yeah, I can give it to my husband. But it’s so not me. And it’s kinda cheesy. OK bye.

Hey it’s a new week…and I’m updating my poor, neglected blog. Mine’s neglected, and I haven’t gone to see what you all are up to in blogland either. I’ll get there. Work is cray right now. Just totally cray. But! I got crafty this weekend. Started out with something not great…but ended with some pretties. Will share soon. But for now – cheers to a new week!

I have not crafted in weeks. Weeks, I say! And I’m a bit rusty. I had to make a project last night for a blog hop coming up, and it did not turn out great. At all. The receiver of said project will love it. But me? I am not proud of it. A lot of changes at work have me in a funk. And when I am feeling good, now that the weather has turned to the better, we are out and about. Or working on home projects. We are at that stage where the kids have stopped writing on the walls, and splattering the place with spaghetti from their high chair, and now it’s time to make this house pretty. Paint some walls. Fix the doorbell. Put up pictures in the hallway. I bought frames when I was on maternity leave almost 9 years ago and they have been sitting on my husband’s nightstand since then. Point is – crafty time has not been abundant. And I miss it. Maybe this week, or over the weekend. But for now, you’ll find me out spreading my wings. Have a great week!
