NYC Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil - My Favorite, Hands Down!

I am always on the hunt for amazing but inexpensive beauty products, and waterproof eyeliner is a must since I have allergies. My eyes water frequently, and if my eyeliner pencil is not truly waterproof, I will look like a crazed raccoon, rather than the bombshell diva I would like to pretend that I am! NYC Waterproof Eyeliner is amazing. It glides on smoothly, without tugging at delicate skin around the eyes. It lasts for hours without smudging, smearing, fading, or disappearing, and the best thing is the price! At only $3.99 each, I can purchase every color that they make. Try it for yourself - I think you will love it!

BOO (thumbs down!) to my Frisco Walgreens!

So Walgreens has a cool sale on "Hallmark" wrapping paper - buy 1 roll for $1.99, get 1 roll free. I had coupons for .50/1 roll, making it two rolls for .99. Then, if you buy 6 rolls, you get $5 back in Register Rewards, so you get paid to buy the wrapping paper. There was a huge sign advertising the Hallmark paper (which is actually "Studio One"; a division of Hallmark). When I got up to the checkout, the manager refused to take my Hallmark coupons because the paper (that they are advertising!!!) says "Studio One" on them!! I pointed out on the roll where it says "made by Hallmark" but she just wanted to argue. Normally, I would've stood firm and demanded that they call corporate, as this was their advertised deal and they should have to honor the Hallmark coupons, but I was in a hurry. I left without the paper.

Boo to Walgreens. :(

Free Envelope Printing Software

Email_clipart_envelopeA while back, I found this link to a great little software program that is free to download. It allows you to print your own envelopes onto regular paper or cardstock and fold, then seal accordingly. You can enter in precise measurements so that you have the perfect-sized envelope for homemade cards, letters, bills (gasp!) or whatever else you need an envelope for! Uses a simple 8.5" x 11" piece of paper/cardstock.

Download the software here!

CVS deals!

Cvs So I have this new addiction (aside from the Twizzlers) and it has to do with CVS. I have been getting all kinds of free products by using my CVS card to earn Extracare Bucks (ECB's) and have been paying very little to no money out of my pocket!

For instance, this week at CVS, if you have an Extracare card, you can get the following items absolutely free:

Sorry for my lack of updates!

I have been so busy lately, but I wanted to pop in and give some updates about me and my family.  :) Matthew had all four of his wisdom teeth taken out on Saturday, so he has been in a lot of pain for the last couple of days. Today is the first day of school that he has missed this school year, and he won't be going tomorrow, either. Luckily next week is Spring Break for the kids, so he will be able to heal. No trumpet for him for the next two weeks.

I remember having my wisdom teeth removed a few years ago. I never got any wisdom teeth in until I was 27 and oddly enough, I only had two! Both teeth on the left side of my mouth - one on top and one on bottom. The surgeon said it was very strange that I didn't have any on the other side, and they even did extra x-rays just to be sure. So at least I only had half the pain, but I would gladly endure childbirth all three times before ever going through the pain of having wisdom teeth removed again. That was terrible, but I am a complete wimp when it comes to pain.

I received a wonderful box of American Crafts goodies! Here are a few of my favorite items from the shipment:


These felt letter stickers are awesome! Here is my favorite sheet of new patterned paper:


And these ribbons are pretty cool, too:


I also got a box of new CherryArte! I am in love with the "Alien Invasion" paper - it looks like Space Invaders, and of course the Retro lover in me thought that was the coolest ever!  :) Here it is:

Ca113smThe color scheme is awesome. There were many others that I loved too, so just check out all the new releases if you haven't done so already. Can't wait to dig into their new stuff!

I am finalizing my projects for the Canada Crop for Kids event in October. I finished up another project for BHG last week and have a few other surprise things that I have been working on, so I will share more with you when I am able!

Before I go, I will share yet another deal with you for free prints! You know how I love those free photo deals! CVS is offering 30 free prints, just click here! Order your prints and pick them up at your local CVS store in just a few hours. Offer is good for existing CVS photo members as well as new members, so go get those free pictures!
