I actually made something today.

I copy crafted some clippies today!  I saw this bunny clip online and thought it was so cute.  It was a lot harder than I thought and it is a little sloppy.  I think practice will make perfect with these clips.  I also made a small clip with a bow and a korker ribbon clip.  I had no idea you can make ribbon curl by wrapping it around a dowel or knitting needle and putting it in the oven!  Thanks Kelly for the info.  I think more korker ribbon will make these type of clips even cuter.  Again, this was my first attempt and I am just proud I did something besides grocery shopping.  I really need to finish some stuff around the house (like baby Ashley's curtains), but this was a quick one to finish. 
This bunny looks like the picture here, but I think it might need whiskers or something.  I also used a wider ribbon because I couldn't find the narrow grosgrain.  I may need to research where to get the right sizes.

Spent 16.28 and saved 106.40...

Ok, so here is what I got tonight.  I will admit, it is really more junk food than I usually keep in my house.  However, I have a baby due any time now and when the boys want a snack (by boys I am including Andrew) I may not be able to peel them an orange or make a salad.  Besides, when a pack of Nutter Butter cookies is free when you buy milk, how can you not get them?
More to come tomorrow...  I am taking Andrew for a big trip so he can learn the ropes.  He is actually excited, but mostly because I told him we can stock up on stuff he likes, too.

I walked out the door with .88!

Ok, so I haven't gotten around to any crafting.  Guess I should have thought of a better name for my blog.  But hey, I am 8 months pregnant and ready to pop.  Anyway, sometimes I wonder how people react to the couponing posts.  Yesterday, my friend Kimberly said even though she doesn't coupon, she likes to see all the stuff her couponing friends get.  So, I had to post this one.  I try not to go negative, and usually store won't let you.  But today I walked out of the store with this and .88.
...  and for anyone who says you can only get junk with coupons, I had more than $7 in overage to spend on whatever I needed.  I chose to buy chicken, but I could have bought fresh produce, milk or anything else in the store.
