Half Off Christmas Art Projects for Children

I found a great website (Plumb District) that is offering 50% off a 3-Month Subscription to The Happy Trunk (monthly art projects for kids).

Each carefully curated box is filled with art supplies, crafts, and scientific activities for hands-on projects good for kids ages 3 to 7. With this offer, every month for three months a new box of goodies will appear full stocked and ready to be ripped open by your tot-sized explorers. They'll build beautiful fall and holiday themed decorations, make sand into glass, and color and craft 'til their hearts are content!

I also found an extra 20% off promotion code (valid today only). spooky20

That means, you get a 3 month subscription for $23.20.

I got mine. Now it's time to cross off a child on your gift list this year, half off + some.

Glove Compartment- Before & After

When I sold my old car and purchased my new 2011 Ford Edge, I didn't take the time to go through my glove compartment (who actually does). I just pulled everything out and shoved it in the new one.

Finally, I was sick of having a bunch of papers in it (probably from 5+ years ago) and not being able to even find a pen.

It took a whole 6 minutes to go through everything, sort out what I needed to keep and toss or shred the rest.

My First Fall Mantel

Since we've moved in (in April), our mantel was covered with photos in frames. Thank goodness I never took a picture. Then I went to Crate & Barrel and had some hurricanes shipped to our house. 

They arrived yesterday and I replaced the photos with them.

Pretty bland, I know. My family and I went to Target and I invaded the $1 bins and found some great items to fill them.

Until after Thanksgiving, I think this will do well.
