You know I am on this "saving $" kick, but I really wanted to have a cute orange and white polka dot pillow in my porch rocker. I just couldn't justify the expenditure. (This "trying to be conservative" thing is a very new experience for me, please, bear with me.)
As I was browsing in Big Lots for something to monogram with the new Cricut, I stumbled upon these clear orange pumpkin trick or treat bags...hmmmm...what if I took this home and stuffed my black and white ticking pillow inside?
When I drove in the driveway I charged right to the front porch and unceremoniously stuffed that sucker right into the bag and tied the top shut with the black cloth handles! Eureka! A funny pillow for $1.50 (plus tax, of course.) Not as cute as orange polka dots, but lots cheaper and it saved some time. I love a good deal.
Also pictured above is my first attempt at using the Cricut. I layered the colors for the owl. Hope you will share something fun you've done for the season...
