Dollar Tree Craft

Well, things has fallen back into place after the craziness of the holidays. When a new year starts off I run out and get a few calendars. I carry 1 in my purse that I log all my assignment/exam dates and I keep one in the kitchen where I write down birthdays and things that we have planned. Many times Kent wants to do something but is not sure if we already have something planned that day. The kitchen calendar is really for his sake. All he has to do is flip to a date and he knows what we have going on.
I stopped at Staples to pick up a few calendars and was shocked at the prices; $7.99 for a small pocket calendar and $20.00 for a spiral bound monthly calendar. Not only were they expensive they were ugly too! No way was I going to pay that. I stopped by Dollar Tree and found just what I was looking for. They weren’t pretty but I knew I could fix it.
With scrapbook paper, ink pads, stamps and some Mod Podge (all things I already owned) I fixed these little guys up.

  3. Great idea! I hate buying little calendars- they are always ugly or expensive, or both! I don't know why it never occurred to me to just make them pretty.

  8. a Bruce Lee workout includes stretching, bending, running, dipping, kicking, jumping, traditional muscle building exercises, weight lifting, rope
    skipping, medicine ball handling, etc. Anyone who dares to make a closer inspection will find the underlying difference.

    That way, the actual process will end up being much
    less frustrating and, for the majority of people, enjoyable.

  9. Any and all help will forever be cherished in our hearts.
    Radio not only offers the option of fresh songs
    but also offers many other features like a talk show or sports broadcast.

    For all those who love listening to the radio the free internet radio is
    a blessing in disguise.

  11. If you cannot write love poems for your guy, don't be disappointed easily. Choosing to focus on sound as a restriction increases a poet's powers
    of observation in melodic structure and the inherit oral aspects of
    a poem. Remember fall in love poems should say the exact thing you feel without hesitation and fear of being embarrassed, either you write fall in love poems yourself or choose from the famous fall in love poems.

  12. Similar to the cue ball that is shot in pools; this game involves coins and strikers that are essential
    to play carrom game. It should come as no surprise that i - Tunes is loaded full of pirate apps
    for i - Phone, i - Pod Touch, and i - Pad. t love the unself-conscious little boy or girl, the undaunted miniature explorer who moves with
    unbridled enthusiasm to experience life.

  13. Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week, you should be strict with what you do so
    as not to inadvertently undo all your hard work for vegetarian weight loss.
    Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved.
    Hence, broccoli is a must-add ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.

  14. Much like Safari, the Camera app, the App Store and i - Pod, Game Center has no option to be deleted when editing
    your apps. At the same time, web games seemed like the future of gaming, and we wanted to be a part of it.
    If you want to be able to hit the ball further and harder, you should
    keep in mind to keep your grip on the bat loose, your swing
    should begin with your legs and hips, and finally, you
    must always follow your bat through.

  15. Both drugs have also been denied FDA approval the
    first time around and are awaiting news on their second attempt.
    It’s old news that tracking food intake could lead to losing a few pounds [2].
    Many people don't have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you're working to lose
    weight and keep it off.
