It's egg-cellent

It's almost time to start on my Easter place card holders! I'm re-posting last years project here on my main blog, Enjoying the simple things and its follow-up here. A friend suggested coloring the eggs first so I may try that this year. Stay tuned for new results.

Pi day and a freebie

Got a tip from Coupons are Great that Blockbuster Express is giving a FREE DVD Rental tonight (March 14, 2011) only.
I know this works because I've done it before.
Enter the code MONDAYFREE when it asks for any special discount codes. You still have to swipe your credit/debit card because if you don't return it the next day, you will be charged.

So go ahead, nab that movie you've been wanting to rent and since it's Pi Day, (3.14) whip up some kind of yummy pie and enjoy your evening!
