Dollar Tree: Crafting on a budget

Tis the Season

    I don't know about you but this has to be my favorite holiday; Christmas. I been counting down the days to break out the lights and grab the yard decor, not to mention the scents of pumpkin pies. The only day I actually go all out. So I am eager counting the down the 55 and thought it is about that time to post some inexpensive ways to decor.

      Alright, let's start with the tree! As you know I am all about repurpose and reducing waste. What am I talking about? Look a little closer. Recognize them yet? If you guessed light bulbs then  you guess right?
  • Grab some glue and glitter,
  • Whatever embellishments you want such as the felt used in the reindeer.  
  • Hook and hang.
This gorgeous idea comes from the Dollar Tree blog. But y'all thrifty shoppers already knew that, huh?
       Moving to the kitchen, which is where I am most of the time. I just love sitting in there and I am currently renovating so I keep ideas coming if I am in there. 
      While I am not one of those ladies that have holiday themed dishes, I did think about this year grabbing some solid colors like these gold plastic charger plates (pictured above) and/or grabbing some white ones and adding my own crafting style (see more of my crafting at Caffeinated Ventures) to some plates.  At this price indulging is NECESSARY.
      Lastly, let's get them guests in the mood before they even walk in the door!!! Personal I love the tire snow man that I created but these should definitely added to the end of the drive way.
Which will you incorporate in your decor?

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8. Your children can look their best without hurting your bank account and most importantly look amazing and still be comfortable. Sound like you, then read further.
     Whether you have a boy or girl this is the "happening spot" for toddlers to kiddos size 14 (see size chart on each item). Start with those little princesses you can grab the pullover fleece and match it with some micro fleece pants (both $6).

    Mix and match from a wide variety of styles and colors. Or even add a scarf to dress it up even more. …

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of wor…

Where to get freebies? Freebie Sites and their Brief breakdowns

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by. I went through countless sites and being spammed before I came up with a legit list and one that does NOT spam you and that you actually get what they say.    I enjoy helping others and hope you all get lots of good freebies. PLEASE share in the comments. Getting started does take some time, once you do it will come with ease. I highly recommend bookmarking and checking regularly these pages regularly and using an email you check regularly or make one for your freebie accounts.

But it appears a little easier for those just beginning. When first starting you need to connect all social media accounts and if you have a Kroger card be …
