Yes, yes I’m alive. I know it’s been a while but I have to tell you we all have been sick here in the Vasquez home. Goodness what has it been a month? Yeah that seem about right. This nasty cold has been ping ponging back and forth like a mucus ball. This has been the first day in weeks I have felt great. The cough is hanging on me like dead weight on a hot day. But just the shear fact I can sit up and take in nourishment is a blessing.
But that being said my mind has been firing away while I laid in bed. When I was able to hold a pencil I jot down some ideas. And this is what I came up with. A simple 10 minute Valentine’s Day card using what I had at home. Most of which I got from dollar bins at Target or the dollar Tree.
You can make this just using weight card-stock some stamps and some foam dots. It really wasn’t all that hard. Take a look how I put it tighter and the end result photos.
Yes its that time again LOOT CRATE! take a look at the awesome stuff I got!

Well our display and props where the talk of the street. Even though the turn out was a little less then I expected. However those trick or Treat’ers that did come by where telling other. And well….by the end of the night we kept hearing “wow it’s the Minecraft house” or “look we found the Minecraft house.” Both my husband and I were villagers and we where a site to see. Kids right off the bat yelled “MINECRAFT!” left and right. We had our far share of the main character STEVE, with a handful of CREEPERS. But the most interesting one was the ENDERMAN that showed up at our door.
It was awesome!
I can say it really did my husband and I heart good to hear that.
These are some of the props we used in the front yard.
Well it that time of the month again, its LOOT CRATE time! What is the theme this time? Well it’s “Time” itself, we’ll all things related with time. Such as Back to the Future, Dr. Who, and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
Here are some of the things that was in this month’s Nerdy Haul!
But if you wan to see it for yourself check out the video below:
Haul number two coming at you! Now this one is a little different because I have some ideas you can do what you get at dollar tree right now. Now mind you Dollar Tree changes there stuff all the time you must get these items when they are available or supplies last.
Okay one with the show!
I went on an outing with my husband today to pick up a few things. To my surprise we went to Orchard Moving Sale, which is like going out of business but your favorite store is not long gone. I had my reservation since you know most of the good stuff is gone but I was wrong, so so wrong.
I was able to find 15/32 or 1,1 cm Screw Eyes Pins in silver and gold, various size of cork tops, metal handles, and a decorative nob. Now mind you we were in that store for like 20 minutes, if I had a full hour or more I am sure I would have come home with a lot more. But as luck would have it we had to be back home to meet the cable guy.
One thing I forgot to mention in my video is that while I was there we got a $10 dollar coupon so really out of pocket was just $1.25. But even if we did have to play for the full $11.25 that was a really good deal.
