Since another candle was used up I cleaned out the jar and thought it would be a nice organizational tool for collecting cough drops for easy access. It takes a few minutes to melt out the residual wax and clean out the jar. A paper towel removed the residual melted wax then soap and hot water removed what was left over.
The Dollar General had a few Christmas items left on a clearance cart at the front of the store. Any item on the cart was priced at .25 cents. I found a few items, paying 1.75 total. I bought 2 cards of magnets that were designed as Christmas stockings, a moose to place on the tree where the little one can reach, a pack of 8 Styrofoam trees - all glittery. I wasn't going to get these until my daughter said I could use them to tie on packages. A few ornaments for the tree finished off the purchase.
|I'm dating myself, but this moose reminds me of Mr. Moose from Captain Kangaroo show.|
On to the Dollar Tree to find Ann Geddes writing pads, gross grain ribbon, candles, and cards. This is my favorite kind of ribbon because of a couple of reasons. It's versatile, it can be used to make bows and sew onto clothing. It's also sturdy and has a nice feel to it.
|The pads will be small Valentine gifts for women in my life. Our family mainly sees this holiday as a couples day where the (fe) male gives sweets or a gift to their female counterpart.|
| The cream and pink ribbon could be used in a number of different ways.|
What did you do this week? I love to read comments and reply. It's like having a conversation with an old friend.
