S is for...

I am so far behind on everything!!
This will be my last week of babysitting 5 days@wk.  After this it will only be Tue/Thur and the occasional extra day.
I haven't left as many comments and some times I admit I've skimmed blogs but I'm trying.
So here I am doing my S post that was due last Thur...
better late then never.

I have been doing some pocket letters (and yes I'm behind there also) and needed a few extra things so I decided to stop at the Dollar Tree on my way home from Mom's place.  I usually don't find much there but it was on the way so I stopped!

S is for Score!
First of all I saw this rack of decorative tape and couldn't believe how cute they were for $1 each
 Then I found stickers
So many cute 3 dimensional sticker packs
 Bakers twine in 3 colors and multi colored paper clips.   What a great deal.  I need to check the Dollar Tree more often.

Of late, even my posts have become delayed so I can relate to your sentiments.
I love the designer stickers

EM said...

Gotta love the Dollar tree for sure. It's great for finding project supplies, holiday merch and more. I've even found things there that I've flipped in the booth!

Yo sure did score! Great finds.

I don't even have babysitting as an excuse for being behind!

Susan said...

I agree, I don't have babysitting as an excuse, but my weeks fly by without getting done what I wanted or even planned! I've only posted twice this month and I can hear Kelly yelling at me to get my "act" in gear, XOXO

Hi Linda~ I know you must be tired. As much as we love our babies, they do wear us out! You know what? This is the second post today I've read talking about pocket letters. I don't have a clue what they are. Maybe you could do a post and tell us! Take care, sweet friend.

Cute stuff, Linda! I love shopping the dollar store for stocking stuffers. Even though my daughter is almost 20, she wants toys in her stocking LOL

I hope you had a great weekend :)

Some days life is so bloody busy we don't have time to blog

With so many important family things going on, blogging sometimes has to take a back seat. I haven't been to Dollar Tree in ages, it just might be time to see what I'm missing.

Nellie said...

Looks like some good finds from the Dollar Tree. I somehow forget to check for things there. Life has a way of getting in the way of blogging, and that's as it should be! xo Nellie

Girl you are really understanding my life - it is so easy getting behind isn't it? U know you enjoyed the reason though. I know you two have bonded and that is awesome and worth it. You got some good deals there.

Susan said...

Oh Linda, babysitting five days a week would be VERY time-consuming. But I'm sure it has been worth it. Now where will Rosemary go? Take care and rest! Susan

Audrey said...

You got some neat stuff to work with ... anxious to see what you make. Glad you will be having more free time and still be able to see your little ones every week.

Looks like some fun projects lie for you in the future!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, look at your new header! I love it!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love the loot you got at Dollar Tree. Maybe you will have time for more projects!

Hugs,

If it makes you feel any better - I just did my "S" post TODAY!

Wow, I have got to go over to the Dollar Tree to see what I have. Last time I was there I was with my 13 year old son and he didn't want to look at the scrapbooking supplies!

Melanie said...

I can totally understand why you haven't had time for blogging if you were babysitting all week! Great bargain craft finds at the Dollar Tree. :-)

Vicky Hunt said...

I have been impressed with their sticker selection the last couple times I went. Great find with the craft tapes! I know you have enjoyed having Miss Rosemary every day, but I am sure you are ready to have some time to catch up on other things too. Have a great week! Hugs!

bj said...

Babysitting is a FULL TIME JOB so I can see why blogging was less.
I love the Dollar Tree...

Consider It All Joy said...

Fun Stuff! I have only done one pocket letter and Loved it, I am hoping to find and entry into another set soon! Love all the goodies you found! It will be nice for you to have a bit of extra time since you won't have the kiddos full time! I'm sure you have been a huge blessing to your family though! Blessings, Cindy

Donna Wilkes said...

I have to be very quick on the draw to get the good stuff at our Dollar Tree. They run out quickly. I would imagine it is due to people like me who buy in volume!

That Rosemary is a cutie-pootie! Love her smile.
