Refilling Your Ink Cartridges

My friend Kristen at The Frozen Coupon made a video about how to refill your own ink cartridges to save lots of money when you print coupons from the internet.  This will be mega helpful for me because just reading how to do something doesn't cut it.
I'm a huge fan of her suggestion to recycle paper.  Why buy new when you can use what you already have but don't need.  Seriously- I'm stocked for years with what my kids bring home from school, like worksheets! 

And here it is:

I may or may not have eaten around 10 mini cupcakes while making Amara's birthday cupcakes for school.  They were really good.  


Ten Thousand Villages Clearance + FREE Shipping

Thanks to Hip2Save I just spent $20 at Ten Thousand Villages!!  They have a great selection of clearance items, starting at just $2 so it was really hard to resist. 
There are a few special events coming up so it's okay to pick up some super cheap items to stow away. 
I can't mention everything I got because of a few family readers/recipients but I couldn't resist the Galimoto for Henry (a push toy) for only $9.  I also got a $4.50 textile hanger (it was $18!!!) for a textile Amara got for Christmas that needs to be hung up ASAP!  For Daddy's day I got the Dragon Jar, on sale for $2.50 from $10.  He never asks for anything and we know he loves dragons.

Not only did I score a few cool things for a great price but right now they are offering FREE shipping with the code EASTER at checkout.  NO minimum required to get this fantastic deal.  I hate it when you see a free shipping offer only to find out you need to spend $50, $75 or even $100.  This is a real deal, folks!

This is my daily life. I feel a sort of peace or relief when I see that others go through it too. Makes it less of a disaster for me and more of a relation to others! I really AM human (and so are the kids...I think).

Pay $15 to Spend $30 at Fashion Playtes- Daughter Can Design Her Own Dress!

Family Find's Baltimore Daily Deal from yesterday was 50% off a voucher to spend $30 at Fashion Playtes, a cute site where girls ages 5-12 can design their very own dress (and one for her doll too!).  For only $15 your daughter can design her very own outfit!  It's still available right now and I'm thinking of purchasing one for my little girl.
The outfits at Fashion Playtes are right up my daughter's alley...and guess who's turning 6 in 8 days?! 

The site is really fun- you pick your garment (they have shirts, dresses, bottoms, accessories and more).  Then you choose your daughter's size- from sizes 6-14.  Next you can choose your color plus any additions like rhinestones, ribbons, ruffles and other cute decorative elements.  You can also add their name to the tag!  Each item has a  price that is clearly reflected as you make your choices.  You can add or remove additions or start over all together if you don't like your creation!

For a unique creation I think the prices are good.  The least expensive piece of clothing is $8.40 and the most expensive is $30 with most being under $20.  Doll clothing is $6-10. 

Shipping at Fashion Playtes is a reasonable $6 flat rate for all orders.

I'll Be Back

Planning a Craft Fair is exhausting and nerve-wracking!!  I've been so busy that I've had to neglect my blogs (and even missed out on a PAID OPPORTUNITY that I really needed!).  But finally- The Loucks/Lincolnway PTO Spring Time Craft & Gift Show is happening this weekend- Saturday April 9, 2011.  Only a few more days to go and I can take a deep breath before diving into the next project which will be happening SOON.  

Wish me luck, good weather and a great turnout and stay tuned for cake-covered Henry updates!!
