cute & cheap, just the way i like it...

If you have ever been to Michael's (the craft store), you may have noticed that they have a bunch of value bins. Joann's does, too, but the stuff in the value bins at Michael's is usually way cuter.

Last week, I picked up a bunch of these typography journals and magnets.

So cool, right?  The journals cost $1 and the magnets are $2.  I gave the "R" ones to my sister yesterday when I took her out to lunch for her birthday and she loved them.  (We're not big present people in our family...we usually don't get each other birthday presents at all.  So, yes, I gave my sister a $3 birthday gift.)  They would make great stocking know, if you're super organized and plan for Christmas in March. :)

I also got these super cute little frames for $2 each.

I'm not sure where I'm going to put them yet.  They would look pretty all in a row on a shelf in my art room, if, in fact, I ever get around to painting and decorating in there.  I was also thinking it might be cute to put a mirror in one or two of them and hang them with some larger mirrors I've thrifted.  We'll have to see.


  1. Great finds! Makes me want to head to Michaels!

  2. I love those frames! So cute!

  3. I loove those frames. Those types are my favorite. Thanks for sharing!
