{Coupons ~n~ Kisses}

I got SO MUCH DONE at work yesterday (YAY!) and decided to reward myself with a little shopping during my lunch break. I had this coupon for my kitties and wanted to get them a little treat. I got two for 25 cent each and Rex and Roxie were very happy!

I also clipped A TON of coupons last night because my sistah-friend Mo was kind enough to let me print some from her computer....THANKS MO! I can't wait to go to the grocery and see what kind of deals I can pull off:) I ended up with way more coupons than I had anticipated so I had to work on developing another plan for keeping them all easily accesible and organized. I found this zip-up type mini-binder in my closet and figured it would do the trick.
...and it did! I kept my other coupon accordian-style folder in my purse and just took out the "food" label that was getting overstuffed. I then reorganized the food coupons into three sections for the new binder- "Cereal, snacks, and boxed items", "Frozen and Middle Section (of most grocery stores)", and "Refridgerated". I think this will help me navigate easily around the store while I'm shopping for deals.

I was SO looking forward to American Idol last night and I realized it was only Tuesday...sigh....so I decided to work on some of my Valentine Decorating!
I love decorating the area around my stove. Do you?
My Granny gave me this cute photo holder for my birthday a few years ago and I pulled out a pic of Trav and I on our honeymoon to celebrate our four wonderful years we have enjoyed together! I cozied up with my heart bowl full of mnm's and my v-day socks and waited on Trav to get home from work.
As you can see, there aren't many left...LOL!
I hung up the wreath I made last year---
and worked on this new Valentine's day framed art grouping. I didn't care that the frames didn't match, I love a mix of different textures, colors, shapes, ect.
It was THIS easy:

1. Find old frame

2. take out picture

3. dust (atleast I had too:)

4. Cut piece of pretty scrapbook paper to fit frame

5. decorate however you'd like using a different piece of scrapbook paper

6. Enjoy

Repeat steps 1-6 to make another one!
But I'm not quite finished...I found this cute ribbon on clearance for $1 at Michael's yesterday and I think a corner bow for this one...
...and a small center bow for this one will finish them up!
This is one of the pieces of scrapbook paper that was ADORABLE and only cost 59 cent! Altogether, considering I already had the frames, this project cost me $2.20! That's my kind of craftin'...
Love,
Laura
