Gift Certificate Heaven!

To my delight, Hobby Lobby gift cards were the #1 gift this year to which I took advantage! And with the sales I found some great bargains. These are a few. This chicken caught my eye some time ago and was so pleased to see it still there, at half off!
I couldn't resist the seasonal, and found this snowman with a gift card from my friend Nancy to Mary Maxim's,
and this adorable candle holder at Hobby Lobby.
This pink blown glass bird clip was perfect for my pink tree. Mom always said a tree had to have a bird on it for luck. She held to that , and it's now a tradition I keep. Even the stick tree has a bird! I have balances on my cards and will use them for projects that come up. It was hard not to spend all of them, but I know when I need them if I don't, I'll be kicking myself!

Laurie, That sounds like so much fun. All of them are good choices, including the one to save some for projects. I especially like the second one, the snowman, he's really cute. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Diane

Love the rooster! And snowman was a good choice too. Did I mention how cute your kids are? Yeah the human ones too. :)

Thanks for the nice comment. I haven't been to Hobby Lobby yet for the sales, but hopefully tomorrow! Sounds like you had a nice Christmas and how sweet is your son to give you a ring. Love your story.

You bought some great things. That Rooster would be right at home in my kitchen. I always have a bird in my Christmas tree too. Didn't know it was for luck. A wonder I hadn't with my family always doing this or that for good luck. Love the snowman.

I love your finds and would like to take that darling snowman off your hands...:)

You are a very wise woman...very wise! Keeping some extra money on your gift cards, you will be very happy later! :)
