Last week I had my tax appointment and it all turned out great. We paid in too much. What a blessing. I pay estimates so it’s always a crap shoot on guessing how much I should be paying in.
I got done with my appointment in record time. Kalissa was finishing out my childcare day by watching the kids so I decided to take advantage and go get groceries so I didn’t have to do that over the weekend…and sneak in a stop at the thrift shop.
We have something in our family we call “Goodwill Karma”. It’s silly but we believe that if we intentionally start looking for something while thrifting, the items will just show up. I TOTALLY believe in it….(actually I believe it’s God lending a hand)…Whatever the case, it truly happens.
Here’s what I found….a great frame. I have a larger cross stitch project coming up and this frame will get cut down for it…$2.
I don’t need super fancy frames…just something tasteful.
Over nap time I had been on the computer, this very day, and I saw a cute craft done with streamers for the childcare kids. I had made a note to myself to start collecting streamers. They always have them at the thrift store…but NEVER do they have all of the colors in one stop.
I had also been looking for a way to introduce my two year olds to another shape. We’d been working on hearts with Valentines Day…I think stars will be up next. I’m not sure what project we’ll do with these foam sticker stars…something though. 25 cents for these!Kelli and I had looked for yardage of plaid fabric last time we were at JoAnn’s. We found some but didn’t buy any as we hoped we might find a sheet or something thrifting….this day I found 100% cotton shower curtain….PERFECT! I also decided to look for some cotton shirts to cut up but was only going to get shirts that were not typical. I found two grays! This fabric will go in the box for the church quilter ladies. Then there was a treat for me….a scrap bag for $1.50. Check it out….
