Shopping for VD

My goodness! What were you expecting?
I ran some errands today making my way through Michaels Crafts and a quick trip to Wal-mart. I know...I hate going in there (Wal-mart) but I needed some Valentine's Day candy for the office.  I found these delicous little candies while there. They're over in the Valentine's candy display. These little "fruit chews" (think Jelly Bellys) are "made with real cherry juice" and are "high in antioxidant vitamin C" which I'm sure makes them "healthy". Right? There are nine flavors in the 10 oz. bag including Cherry Vanilla, Kiwi Cherry, Cherry Daiquiri, Cherry Cheesecake, Cherry Cola, and Chocolate Cherry. Also, they're Made in USA with an affordable $2.25 price for the bag.

Michaels had 40% some of their Valentine's Day decorations plus there's a 25% everything coupon for Sunday. I picked up a few things to decorate the office with. I'm enjoying having an office to decorate for the seasons. I decided a week ago to create my first bunting/banner/garland or whatever they call them. I covered some cardboard hearts with scrapbook paper and my plan was to spell out "Employee Relations" but then I realized I didn't have any letters to spell it out.
I did some research and found a Cricut machine for $149 that I thought was reasonable. It's a cool little machine and it was pretty easy to figure out. Now I have my letters and more! I know it's kind of a tease since I'll wait until I get it hung up in the office this week and take a photograph of it.  I think it turned out cute.

Here's a wreath I bought at Michaels that I'm going to embellish. This is my "before" shot with the "after" to follow later. Have a fabulous week!



  1. Welcome Back! (HaHa) Always loved it when you wrote once a week, but once a month is okay, too. Yours in warm weather in Philadelphia.

  2. You are too funny! I never buy candy but I may have to make an exception for that stuff! Yum! I love REAL cherry flavor but not maraschino..ate a whole jar when I was a kid and made myself sick so that spoiled maraschino cherried for me for life!
    The Cricut looks cool! Everytime I see a craft thingy I like, someone has used a Cricut to make it!
    I can't imagine how your going to embellish that wreath as it looks pretty fancy as is! I love I can't wait to see what YOU do with it!
    Have a great week!
