polished earrings

I'm so excited. i have no clue why I didn't do this earlier.  I love accessories , but having a baby makes it trickier, and i had formerly stretched my ears to 0 gauges twice before, not my ears are back to a 10, but still limit what i can wear, i normally gotta stick with light weight earrings, if i don't wanna use ear tape. Ear tape is just like tape help ears not sag form earring as much.

so any ways i like to stick to this style, i hear them referred to as button earrings most the time. I get mine form H&M most the time, as shown above a set of theirs. $3.95 for 4 pairs. a great price, but every time there a pair im just not to crazy for. Like the gold pair above, i last bought 2 set, each came with a gold pair, and sliver like it. i have no clue why i didn't think of sooner, hello nail polish, i own over 30 colors! 
Most us girl has used our nail polish on something other than other nails, weather it be a babydoll maker over or scratch on the car (not good). so i took a gold pair, and some really glitter china glaze i got for .50 on clearance. Here the outcome.

My camera does no justice, i dont know what i'll wear them with but i will. im just so excited, i feel like i'm paying just a dollar each again, cause i'll wear em all. Of course polish chips, but i guess we'll see how long it last. I just wish this duh simple idea popped in my head long ago. Same style of earrings at Walmart, my sister in law & I found in Christmas clearance just .25 a pop! so we got some for my older niece her sister's ear were still too little :). it was mostly christmas designs but we should of grabbed like $5! worth. And broke our our nail polishes boxes, oh wells. :) I think walmart still sell them too, a lil larger than H&M a $1 and for most people in a closer distance.

If you never shopped at H&M try em out, prices are like forever 21. your be like "OMGZILLA" over how affordalbe on half the store and the other half on outrageous prices are.

B2S Freebies

a good way to save a dollar here or there, it having no shame in grabbing those promo freebies, make it a family thing, let them get the item but you as the parent save it for later. here just a few.
all but one item above are either form The Pizza Festival in Lemoore, CA or Science Expo in Vegas, NV
both fun free events for the family.

pencils/pens- how many time have we our self lost them? i grab every pen or pencil i can, they dont last long.
these items can be found at dollar stores and such, but free is better. and they add up. grab 2 shoe boxes at your local dollar store or a old shoe box, and watch how fast some people can fill it.

rulers- not as easy as getting free as pens, but our out there. the this ruler show is super durable versus some you can buy for $1 or less

crayons- can be found in many places, i like to save them and use these for non school fun, instead of our the nicer brands, some the help keep other crayons along liver, even like at famous daves or denny when you get a few not in a pack, just have a box of crayons at home to toss em in too, plus theres tons of fun crayon project out there, for rainy days.

paper pad- some use them some dont, just nice for lil note and are free.

now, the stickers, tattoos, and buttons/pins. those can be used to snazzy up plain notebooks and bags.
works best on your kids, many give out free stickers, radio stations, schools, teams, anyone really.

the 3 red items now. i just have so just showing, the 1st mini 1st aid kid,  weather for you or child.
the 2nd is a whistle, nice for stranger danger lessons. the 3rd just a flash light, i dropped alot of things in odd places as a kid. :)

not show other school related items i've seen that are 'free-promo'
-high lighter, folders, binder, mini note books, drawstring bag, sandwich holders, and even coats.

no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed, or even ask if you can take a few pencils. they want you too.
you or your child(ren)  will being promoing their business .

a little vest diy.

here a lil vest i did for my daughter, picked it up for .99 cents at a VIP savers event.
thrifting rule no. #107 DIY is a girl's real bff.

keep in mind, im not one of those moms who will take 100s of photos for just the right shot,
i rather go play tea or hide and go seek with my daughter, than all that clicking.
so it a 18M vest, faded glory .
so long time ago walmart had a bunch of dye for just .50 so i had to grab some. so this was throw in to a light pink dye, over night, and came out purple as i taught it might.
was suppose to be just leopard spot, i did it free hand, should of use my stencil, oh well, im over it.
was going to order some studs to add to it, but i think i'll save it for another project. and was going to chage the buttons, but im sure Amelia doesnt care so i'll just save them also for another project.
all the tweens seen to love it on her.
