Sunday-Funday Suncatcher Project

After work Friday I wandered around my local Dollar Tree and on a whim I went through the collection of suncatchers they had in stock. Located all the way in the back, was a rose pattern, and after checking the other racks for the design, I resorted to tearing the suncatcher from the back of the rack. Two of the paint pods appeared dry so I purchased a second one with full paint.

The paint bubbles and “shrinks” as it dries so if you purchase these kits for the kiddies you may want to help them fill in spots. You can also mix colors with this kit and luckily it can be done with a small dab of paint.

All in all I’m satisfied with the project and here’s my results:

Fairy Branch Arrangment

Michaels had a 40% off floral sale today which I happily participated in. Sometime ago mom had given me a Lucky Bamboo which I promptly killed. It wasn’t intentional, it just didn’t like me. In fact none of them ever do. But I digress… Using the glass bamboo jar I filled it with moss, topped it off with a shiny green ribbon and stuffed the arrangement into the guest bathroom. Only thing I’m missing is a clip-on fairy figurine.

Chocolate Candles

Interesting find at the Dollar Tree up the street from me. Chocolate scented candles in the form of large candies, wax wrapper included. I’d love to find molds like this for candle making. And yes, they smell like chocolate. Yummy!
