Project 365 ~ Week 35

Started making some cards again this week. This is a really cute Get Well card that I made. I got the idea on Split Coast Stampers I had some scrap pieces of design paper and I decided to put them together and make another Get Well card.
Mike and I were driving along and we saw a chicken truck. I am guessing it was going to the Tyson processing plant.
This little red machine has been the best thing we have ever bought off Craigslist. Mike and I have put in about 10 hours of chipping branches. This was the last pile we had and now we are finished.
Mike is off work for 11 days so he has lots of plans to get things completed around the house. Besides chipping the branches up, he also split fire wood and cut up the branches that were to large to put in the chipper.
Saturday night I had another card class. I got so involved in giving them directions and showing them different techniques that I forgot to take any pictures so I snapped this picture of all of the girls holding their favorite card they made.
Today after church we went to Publix to pick up some of their really good sale items. I got toilet paper, candles, napkins, soup, air freshener, marinade, salad dressing, ice cream and A1 sauce all for $13.50. I saved $48.17 between Publix sales and my coupons.

Sounds like a very fun week! When we get a little more organized I want to try my hand at making some cards.

LOVE Craigslist! It's here in Argentina, too, but almost everything listed is in Bs. As. Hoping it catches on in other parts of the country, especially in Cordoba :-)

Love the savings! Miss that part of shopping in the U.S.

Have a great week!

Hey! The best 'thing' we bought off CraigsList was Betsy. Now that she heard me read your blog -- we'll have to be extra special nice to her. I think you hurt her feelings.

You are going to have to buy Betsy a bone! (she called me very upset)
I'll have to show Roger the chicken truck, the one we saw up there was empty remember.

Betsy told me she understood... she is not at all mad at me... really, she isn't :-)
Besides I will give her a bone tonight and she will forget all about it.
