Cool Stuff

Thrifty Decor Chick and Tatertots and Jello are having a Giveaway

Ever since using my girl Ofelia’s Circut Cutter, I have been in love.  While the Circut is AWESOME, I just can’t bring myself to buy cartridges that range from $20-80 a pop.  So I did digging and research and I found the one I love…The Silhouette.  There is so much amazing stuff you can do with it!  So when I saw a chance for an extra entry by blogging about it, I knew I had to write something.

Money. Time. The fact […]


Recently I got an e-mail from a friend of mine that said, “I thought you might like this”.  Typically I don’t pay attention to these e-mails, but something made me go look.  What did I find?  Paradise. (Well, not really).  But what I found was really cool. is a web-site that allows members to post items they have (books, movies, Cd’s and video games) in their member profile.  Then they get to go through and pick items they want.  When there is a match, swaptree lets you know.  You can then initiate a trade with someone.  If you both […]
