Get some of your money back

I don't know about you, but I have already started doing a bit of my holiday shopping. Much of what I purchase I buy online. If you're interested in a way to get some of that money that you spend on the stuff you buy online back, you gotta check these two sites out:


Both sites offer rebates back when you visit their site first, then follow their link to the site where you want to buy your items. Many times I will fill up my shopping cart first (because I forget) and right before I finalize the checkout process I double check the two sites to see who has the best rebate.

Ebates sends me a check each quarter. Big Crumbs deposits my rebates directly to my PayPal account.

I don't shop a LOT but I am finding that I am shopping more and more online. The rebates aren't huge but they do add up. If nothing else, they reimburse some of the shipping costs. So, I think it's worth it.

I'd love if you would use my links in this post. I get a referral "bonus."

Thanks for stopping bye! Happy shopping!

I know it's been a while since I blogged. It is not that I haven't been crafting. It's more about the fact that life has kept me busy. I take pictures of my crafts in hopes of being able to hop on the computer and blog a bit.... then the pictures get filed and the post doesn't happen. Oh well.

I made this little hand out several months ago for a friend of mine who wanted to give these to the young women she taught. The lesson was on modesty.

The quote reads, "What you put on your body 'talks.' And everyone who sees you 'hears' what you're saying."  Here in the AZ desert modesty can be a real issue. Especially when it's over a hundred degrees outside and the last thing you want to do is put clothing on, if you know what I mean.

I drew the shape and cut them out using SCAL and then used my printer to print the quote on to each dress. We cut them out in several colors (purple, blue, yellow, pink) but for some reason I only seem to have a picture of the pink. (Hmm...?) Then I tied a bit of ribbon around each. And Voila!

That's it for tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Thanks for the link SugarDoodle!

Pedal Pusher ... baby gift

I have had a lot of fun playing with my new stamp set: PaperTreyInk's Pedal Pusher. Here is the first card I've made using the set... (ink: PTI - Smokey Shadow; Recollections - Horizon; StudioG - yellow)
The cute little bear comes from WaltzingMouse's Half Pint Heroes Additions. (ink: Memento - Black; colored with Copics)
The plaid pattern also came from WaltzingMouse: Gingham & Co. (ink: PTI - Smokey Shadow)
I created the sentiment on my computer and printed it directly onto the card stock after I stamped the plaid pattern onto it.
The colors were inspired by the clothes I found for the baby. While I wasn't able to make the gift, I was happy I had time to make a cut file for the bicycle and wheels so that I could layer the stamped image onto the card.

Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for visiting.
