Dollar Store Decorating

I have a love hate relationship with the Dollar Store. I like getting cleaning supplies and toiletries there. Cards too! I still doubt the quality of food that they have there, call me crazy. Ours recently started selling Starbucks Frappuccino!!! That is nice. I always wish I could find/make nice gifts from there. I started looking up online information on decorating with things from the Dollar Store. So far it's candles, baskets, and bags. Some of the ideas are in fact TACKY, which I will not do.

I do remember a girl that was an interior design major that lived in the same dorm/floor as me freshman year. She decorated their dorm room SOOO well with only dollar store finds. Her eye was amazing.

Alot has been going on. The end is near for my masters of education in instructional design. My "paper" is up to 60 pages and needs edited and formatted. I have to write the report on what I did, how, why, etc. Then I am finished. Graduation is in May and I can't wait. I shall be hitting up a potential job source and hopefully will get it and be able to work from home. A dream for me!

I've tried to take a mini technology hiatus after being glued to electronics for the past several months. I really believe we need to limit and/or plan time to use technology and then escape for a bit. Helps with the soul.

There's a list of things I want to accomplish this summer. It's only growing!

I have been getting the house in order and gathering up items for the street wide yard sale May 2. It always rains and people never want to pay much for anything, but it's fun and I enjoy talking to people.

One big goal is to wake up earlier and accomplish things in the morning (when I'm most productive) and blog regularly!
