A last minute gift











I had been looking for one of those photo cube things so I could decorate it and give it to Miguel for Valentine's Day so he could put on his desk at work, but I just couldn't find one! Yesterday, me and Mikey took a last minute trip to Hobby Lobby at Crossroads since I had finished all my "chores" by 11:00 and had nothing to do for the rest of the day. Anyway, I found this cute paper mache box...maybe like 4 1/2x 4 1/2 inches with a lid and thought that would be perfect. I took the lid off so that it would be "open" and just decorated the four sides. I filled the box with Hershey's kisses and other yummy chocolate candies that I'm sure I'll end up eating...lol :D I'm really loving the way it turned out! I used some old MM stickers and some new stuff too. I'm thinking that once the candy is gone, Miguel can use it to put his pencils and pens or whatever else in there. I'm also planning on buying Miguel an Ipod tomorrow after I sell my treadmill (cross your fingers). He has been saying he wants something to listen to when he goes to the gym so I'm going to get him one. I got the kids gifts too. For Mikey, the "Open Season" movie he's been wanting for a while now, a bag of candy, an M&M dispenser, and this cute little hedgehog toy I found at WM for only a buck! SO cute! It shakes when you bounce it! I just hope he's not afraid of it! lol For Lij, I got him the same hedgehog toy because I know they'd fight over it, an M&M dispenser in a different color, a bag of candy and this book we saw at M's the last time...it's for kids...has lots of neat "tricks" and stuff...not sure, but I know he wanted it. He's not coming home this weekend. He wanted to stay at his dad's. I'm going to see if we can still go take him his gift some time during the day tomorrow. Maybe I won't tell him...just ask his dad if they'll be home and surprise him :) Oh, at HL yesterday, paper was half off so I got the SEI Dill Blossom package which I'd been wanting for while. I know it's "old", but I like it. And also got this K&Co. Wild Saffron paper pad which I'd had a few sheets of before from 911 and really liked them, so I got the whole pad. Oh, and this AC clear backed sticker book...that I didn't know I ALREADY HAD! lol And then just a few sheets of random stickers. One for me and three for a little Easter giveaway I'll be having here soon so look out for that. Hmm..what else? Not much else going on. I'm going to try to scrap some today...if Mikey will permit. We have been playing that "fishing" game I got him yesterday ALOT and I have to say that my son is a cheater! LOL He will "wait, wait, wait" me so he can grab the fish before I do or use his other hand to "steady" his pole which makes it alot easier to pick up the fish! I don't know if he knows that I let him win anyway...hmmm...lol Okay, that's all for now :)

LOL @ the fish game. I always wanted to buy him that one, but I figured he'd break it trying to keep the fish from moving;)

LOVE that little box!!! It is SUPER adorable.
