Target has the lowest EVERY DAY price for Soy Silk (our is $2.69 for a 1/2 gallon), but lately it has been on sale and comparable at Safeway. Safeway will double the coupon up to $1 and Target won't so when it is on sale go get it. Our current sale is $2.79, so $1.79 is pretty great.

The first thing I did was sign up for my free four week trial of http://www.thegrocerygame.com/ (thank you, Sharon). Now I really don't like paying for a service but it is very inexpensive when you sit down and look at the numbers. I pay $10 a month for the Safeway "list". Which works out to be about $2.50 a week in a four week month and $2 in a five week month. I save a whole lot more than that just using the list, because they do a lot of the work for me. Also, I have not stopped there - I have a lot of printed coupons from the internet and manufacturer sites, so I have those organized and I check to see if I can "one up" some of the coupons listed on the Grocery Game. By doing just this - I paid $58 for $147 worth of groceries this last Saturday. I'm liking those numbers.
Next, I've started subscribing to blogs that share saving secrets and up to date deals found by moms an other consumers. So here are some of the deals I have for this week.
Buy 3 Glade Sprays at $0.99 after the in-ad coupon
Use $0.75/2 coupon from the 11/1 SmartSource insert
Stack with the $1/2 from Walgreens November Coupon Booklet
Pay $0.72 plus tax after coupons ($0.24 each)
Then go to SC Johnson to get you $5 rebate form for purchasing three Glade products (you can do this up to 3 times). (Thank you Money Saving Mom)
**Learning moment - I didn't read this properly and forgot my Smart Source coupon...ooops! So, I paid a total of $1.74 including tax. Still not a bad deal, especially when you consider the rebate, but I was a little angry with myself. I have a couple more Walgreens ads here and I'm going to go do this one more time WITH my SS coupon and hopefully I will get great results again!
Apples -$1/lb (could vary by store)
Use $1/2 lbs here
Final Price = $0.50/lb when you buy 2 lbs
***I purchased 3 pound bag for 1.99 and a 2 pound bag for 1.99 (after 1 coupon for each bag, I paid $.50 a pound for one and $.33 a pound for the other.***
Up & Up Flushable Wipes Refill (48 ct) or Soft Packs of Wipes - $0.98/ea
Use $1/1 Target coupon here or here
Final Price = FREE
Up & Up Baby Wipes (72 ct tub) - $1.57/ea
Use $1/1 Target coupon here or here
Final Price = $0.57/ea
***The store I went had a regular price of $1.55 each, so I paid $.55 each after coupon. Depending on where you live, you price could be slightly different. ***
(Thank you Stretching A Buck)
More deals later..right now one of my "other" jobs is calling me. :)

Instant Arrangement and it smells
awesome! It looked better the other
day, but it is still making things smell
TANGENT ALERT! My cat has an
over-active thyroid problem, which
is causing him to be super picky with
his choices in food.
We've even resorted to giving him fresh salmon!
What is next? Lobster???
Anyway, he will eat a little salmon and then leave the rest. So grossed out this AM, I put the leftover salmon in the garbage disposal. EEEEEEUUWA!
It smelled gross...
OFF TANGENT! I put some basil down the disposal and it took the smell away! Who knew?! I usually put lemon in the disposal when I'm cooking with it and it freshens things up, but basil works great!
I took a peek at the basil/rose bush box today and saw my basil plant still looks pretty good - I'd better cash in on that abundance and make more pesto. :)

Last year I posted a picture of a hat that Taylor had from the GAP as a baby and how I was going to make and sell them. Well, I couldn't find the hat, so it never happened. Lon (my DH), went on a garage cleaning rampage and guess what I found! I guess I have to thank him for that. Anyway, I've recreated the hat in my own gauge. I need to figure out larger sizes, but for now I have the 3-6 month done. We will be selling these at the shop, but I hope to have a written pattern for sell eventually, also.
Front: Please imagine one more pom pom, as it will have two. :)
The launch date for Snauserpaus Studios on Etsyis October 15th! So get ready for some handmade Christmas shopping!

*Note: she does not start with a slip knot for some reason. You will find it easier to start with a slip knot first and then proceed as she does in the video.
For Heather - Here is a video showing how to seam a garter stitch edge. This first one is really great (note the awesome accent of the narrator makes it even better - Love IT!). They do not give an option to embed the video, but here is the link. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-sew-seams-together-on-a-knitted-garment-159277/

Black and White with Frame
Several other vintage effects...
This was all I had time to do - I was exhausted last night. I hope to edit some of my landscape pics with a special Ansel Adams "action". Until then...

This is my "shadow"...
...my "shadow" is two. His sisters are in vacation, so I'm his playmate. I have to say that I'm exhausted from constant play and then trying to get my work done at night. This picture is from our first full day playing together...we played in the backyard in the baby-pool. Yesterday we met friends and played at the park. Today we met up with friends to play again and then went to Grandma's house for a hair-cut. My "shadow" keeps me quite busy (and tired), BUT...I wouldn't change a thing! :)
Did you know shadows can talk? Mine can...he's calling me now...

My mom used to my similar things for my sister and I when we were little, but they were wrap dresses. Hopefully I can figure a way to alter this pattern to make it into a cute dress.

I think it is pretty cute - minus the little soccer t-shirt that she is wearing under it. My sewing ventures are going to take some time because I seriously cannot sew a straight line. I'm learning that I need to take my time and slow down a bit.
Hopefully I will only get better with practice.
This is a seriously easy pattern that I bought off of Etsy a few months back. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=15096321 It took me 4 hours to make, but it should have only taken me 2 hours. I had some issues with my machine and the tension, but once it was fixed it went quite smoothly.
In the end, I'm happy with the final product. :)

Reading - I'm currently reading Twilight, but it is going a bit slow since I have that looming WIP hanging over my head. Its been about two weeks and I'm only on chapter 3. I'm really enjoying it so far, though.
Craft Blogs - holy moly!!! I read a lot of craft blogs! Look at the list on my blog - YIKES! I do browse these each and every day to see what people are coming up with and I just really find so much inspiration whether I try new projects or not. If your looking for something to get you out of your creative rut, I encourage you take a peek at some of these.
Etsy - this is an avenue for crafters to sell their goods. I'm shopping all the time on their. I wish I was buying all the time, but I do try to search there first before buying a gift. Currently I'm searching for a present for my Grandma's 84th birthday - which is next week! I'm not sure if I have time, but here are a couple things that I've found so far.
This is an adorable hand stitch ready to frame print that would look so cute in my Grandma's new bedroom.
This is an already framed print that would add a
little modern whimsy to her room. Love it!
For time sake, I might have to shop locally since I'm running out of time, but we will see.

These are triangle "bandanas" for the girls. I just need to finish the ties and block - I needed to do this weeks ago. Poor girls. My goal is to finish before they leave on their trip to CA Monday. I used self patterning yarn and LOVE the way each one turned out different and they came from the same skein!
Rocker Granny Blanket - this is my first BIG crochet project. I hope to have it finished by winter...no rush on this one...for now.
Laced Sleeve Cardigan - I look forward to posting more about this project. It is the first sweater that I have made for myself. This is the back of the sweater and looks like a big rectangle, but trust me...it only gets better. :)
And Finally!!! This called the "Angel Wings Pinafore" and is for a newborn (a lucky friend will be getting this). I just started this last night, so I'm posting the picture from the website and I'm posting my project - it is in a really cute pink, purpe and cream variegated yarn from Hobby Lobby. http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/angel-wings-pinafore.html
Hopefully the next time I post my WIP stash - there will be new projects...until then...Happy Knitting and Crochet!
