Exhibit A -
My fall wreath.
For a few years I've wanted a nice wreath to display my love for autumn. But I could never find one I liked well enough. And the ones I did like seemed way overpriced. Nick encouraged me to check out Hobby Lobby - a store I had never set foot in (and I am still wondering why Nick had made it in there before me). So I did, and discovered that all their fall decor was 50% off! I got the few items I needed and voilà! I now have my fall wreath. And for just over $15.
Exhibit B -
An "About Me" poster for Toby's preschool.
OK so I admit, this one wasn't as simple. I really had no intention in putting so much work into a preschooler poster! But something flipped the creative switch inside of me and suddenly I became the over-achieving mom for one night. Or a few days. I actually stayed up
Yeah, my artistic skills are a little rusty. But it felt good to be drawing again!
Then I found some family pics, printed out some captions, made an 11 pm trip to Smith's for a poster and...here it is:
I showed the poster to Toby the next day and he loved it so much he carried it around with him all morning. That right there made all the work worth it.
