Tidings from Target

After the news of the security breach this morning, I freaked a little.  Of all the places!!  I was pretty disappointed in my favorite retailer.....nevertheless, I'm still going to plug them in this post since I've checked my account and SO FAR I've seen nothing out of the ordinary.

Here's a little DIY I did from the Dollar aisle.  A-Z packs of metallic chipboard letters were $1/ea.  I also grabbed a spool of metallic bakers twine.  With two packs of letters and a spool of twine (and some hot glue) I was able to create the following:  (along with and extra "joy" garland on the shell tree I mentioned yesterday).

Picture frames were on sale in late November.
I was a little excited about my chalkboard inspired wrapping (post coming soon),
so I practiced with some white paint pens and black construction paper.
Temporary festive artwork for the bar until I get the perfect picture printed for the new frame.
I've been on the hunt for a nice boxwood wreath for a while.  If you've ever checked out boxwood wreath prices, you know they can get pretty expensive.   

This Smith & Hawken preserved boxwood retailed for $39, but with a Cartwheel discount and a $10 online coupon, I ended up paying around $24. 

 How festive are these 3D paper snowflakes?
The large snowflake was $8 and a pack of 2 smaller flakes were also $8.

They are packaged flat and close magnetically, so they can be reused and easily packed away. 
More to come soon!
