Pick Your Plum...Love them!

So this is a praise post for Pick Your Plum! I am an affiliate but this my opinion of a great company whom I have bought from for almost a year, they did not ask me to write this post.

Pick Your Plum is a daily deal site where they offer anything from vinyl to clothes to twine to cupcake liners. Each deal is priced great. Their customer service is so wonderful; they respond to each Facebook post, either a question or a praise. You can tell they want to know their customers and want to make sure they are happy. My biggest addiction is their Grab Boxes, you have seen my posts probably. I have gotten 3 thus far and I love them. It is so great to open the box and see all the wonderful surprises in it. I will continue to buy the Grab Boxes (if my budget allows).

Check out some of their deals:

This is today:

Previous deals:
I love the muslin bags!

Cute treat bags (got the yellow for my daughter's upcoming birthday part)

Vinyl junkie, yup that is me. I got each of their iron on vinyl and the white board and chalk board.
Cute hats

Metal plaques
Pretty straws (got some for daughter's party too)

Backpacks and lunch boxes
Stamp sets

Well I could go on and on and on and on...but check out their Facebook page for more pictures.

Be sure to sign up for their emails also! I will say that the Facebook page is the best way to keep up with the deals as sometimes the emails get logged behind, not PYP's fault, but the servers of the email host's fault.

Teacher's Valentine

Little late but this week has been crazy!

I made 4 of these signs for Ashlee's teachers, well one was for a friend's teacher. The metal plaques came from Pick Your Plum and I used my Silhouette to cut out the words. My sweet hubby drilled holes for me so I could thread the ribbon through. I think they turned out cute.

Side note: I got a new car!! We downsized both cars this week due to hubby traveling so far for work now. He got a used car that gets super great gas mileage and I got smaller vehicle that gets good gas mileage. Mine is a 2013 Scion xD. Drove it for the first time (besides the test drive) this the big city traffic. I was a nervous wreck by the time I got to our destination, Ice Skating with some friends.

Putty please be my Valentine

So Ashlee has 12 classmates in her preschool. I wanted something fun but not expensive as 12 3 teachers adds up. Ashlee loves her Silly Putty and I remember loving it when I was a kid. So I went to the Dollar Tree and found a 2pk for $1! Score! And some cute sandwich Valentine bags. Total $8 (Ashlee had to have some putty too!). I printed up a little label and put them on the bag. Quick, easy and cheap (but still fun!)!

All ready to go in my new PYP tin!
