Cheap Scrap

I'm not really a scrapbooker...I'm WAY to cheap!! I do like to do a little craft craft every once in a while. I hate to pay a dollar for a piece of paper though. Welcome SEI outlet!! They have paper for 10 cents!! Hello friends 10 cents! It's worth a visit!!

Book Report

Seeing red!!

Today I tired on the worlds cutest trench coat! DARLING! It was perfect is every way...but....I couldn't raise my arms. I was heart broken. Should I have just bought it and kept my arms down...or did I do the right thing buy walking away?

I cross my heart! Hope to die! Stick a needle in my eye!

Today I went and had Punctual Cauterization. Wikipedia says this:

[edit] Cauterization
If punctal plugs are effective, thermal[6] or electric[1] cauterization of puncti can be performed.
In thermal cauterization, a local anesthetic is used, and then a hot wire is applied.[6] This shrinks the drainage area tissues and causes scarring, which closes the tear duct.[6]

HOLY PAINFUL!! Ever had a needle stuck in your eye lid? Ever tried to keep your eye lid open while a needle is coming toward your eye? Ever tried to be nice to your doctor who looks like "The Bachelor" while a burning, stinging, melting sensation is happening in your eye hole? Ever had to pay a boat load for so much pain?? I did!! Holy Painful!!

Let's all take a moment and pray this helps!! More tomorrow folks! Happy Winter!

Cheap Glasses

I love a good deal!! No really! I REALLY love a good deal!! One night many moons ago I was surfing and read here about a deal just to good to be true!! Eye glasses for 8.00 (plus shipping)! I was aghast! After much thought I decided to give it a try. If worse came to worse I could eat 12 dollars!! The top pair was my "old" Eddie Bauer expensive glasses and the bottom ones are my new darling glasses!! A little tine up date is good!! Go here to check out the deals!! They also do SUN GLASSES!! Oh I need some sun glasses!! I am excited!! Go check em out and share in the cheapness glow!!


I love V and Co.'s blog!! I loved these pillows she made. I need ANOTHER pillow like a whole in the head! So I did this!! It is FAR from perfect but it is a good start!! *** I added some black spray paint to help w/ the "fade" and making the contrast not so crazy!! I won't wear this to the prom and will use less contrast next time..but it looks good!

Junk Tippy!!!

Look who is on Tip Junkie AGAIN!!! ME ME ME!! I'm number #6!! WOOO WHOOOO!!!

(Million) Dollar Section Anyone?

If there is a dollar section in ANY store...that is where I head first. I joked w/ a lady today that they should call it the "Million Dollar Section". It wouldn't be false advertising!!

Today when I popped in to Michael's I found these!!! No not a ring!! A super darling (dollar) drawer pulls!! These babies are beefy too!! They had a few flavors I came home w/ a few of these!!

File folders!! Hello cuteness!

And aren't these cards "Cute as a Button"!!! Hello and do you see an aqua theme? Me too!! Oh Aqua I love you!!

The sun refused to shine today..hidden behind a blanket of black gunk in the sky. Oh sun I miss you!! That is the reason the pictures are poor! I should make a photo light box!!

Older people like fake flowers. I like to give people what they like! So I gave my sweet elderly friend a darling bunch of fake flower for Christmas. When I visited today she thanked me and she assured me she'd been watering them!!


My hand hurts from buffing scratches out of my car. Good news some disappeared!!!

So I'm cheap!? So I like a good deal!? So I read lots of blogs of cheap people and I morn that I don't have a restore of my own...well that all changed 7 short weeks ago. Yesterday I visited for the first time.

The store is so new they don't have lots of stuff. Sighhh...but give it 6 or 8 months and I think this place will be hop'n!!!

I saw a box of these babies for 2 dollars each. They were beautiful!! You could do a bathroom back splash for under 20 bucks!! Or behind a stove so CHIC!!

Need extra chairs for your work room? 5 bucks! (They had nice office chairs too!)

I think these slabs came from the old Hotel Utah...they are beautiful! (they were not priced!!)

Fur Sur a must visit for a junker! (In 6-8 months)


I went to Pottery Barn yesterday down at Trolly Square...THEY HAVE EXPANDED!! I think it's what heaven will be like...only less expensive!!
