Have you strolled the aisles of Hobby Lobby lately?

It's our only craft store in town...so I visit a lot!

I usually go with a project or idea in mind, but something happens while I'm walking the aisles.

Maybe it's because I have never been much of a multi-tasker, I'm more of a focus-on-one-thing-at-a-time kinda gal, but something comes over me when I'm met with all the wonder and the goodies and I usually find myself paying for items I never intended to buy...while the items I went to the store for in the first place never even make it into my cart!! 🙊😏

Does that happen to you too??

I'm actually pretty good at hunting up deals and paying less! In fact, I LOVE to save money and spend LESS on my decor and my home! Do you too?

Oh good, because today I want to show you how, with just a few bucks, you can make something pretty spectacular! All of these DIYs cost around $10...some a little more and some a little lot less! Home decor for less than the cost of lunch? Or coffee at Starbucks? Count me in!
