I worked on my valentine crafting this week. I had to make some for my homemade valentine exchange and for a party at Union's school valentine making party. Everything for valentine making was purchased second hand and thrift sourced. I love that! It has made valentine makig so much fun and inexpensive. If you're in on the valentine swap I'll be mailing out my valentines Monday. I know Friday was the mail out date but we were busy.
We had a big feast of a thousand dumplings to celebrate Chinese New Year last night. What fun. I can
t believe the awesome food my friends brought. We had so much that I actually had to freeze the leftover uncooked dumplings. All I can say is wow, can't wait for a night later this month to pull those out and chow down. Check out the menu: crab rangoon, fresh rolls, dumplings, shrimp purses, fried dumplings, Japanese beef stew, edamame, fried rice, lo mein, chicken bulgogi, sticky rice and Thai inspired cold peanut salad(which I never even got out of the fridge). Not all Chinese dishes but we opened it up to any Asian inspired dish. Leftovers for lunch! YES.
I also created a few stuffingless toys for our pack of yellow labs. They were HAPPY. So was I, the price was $14.00 for a store bought stuffingless toy or 25¢ for a stuffy at the thrift store. SCORE.
I took pity on moms across the United States suffering through snow days. I created a list of some fun things that keep us busy when the weather turns bad. I should know how to keep busy, living in Alaska and all, right?
How was your thrifty week?
Peace and Love--
