Dollar Store Decor

Hello!  It has been awhile since I have posted!  We had a wonderful 10 day vacation during the first two weeks of August and the rest of August was spent preparing for the new school year!  I am returning to my fifth grade teaching position after four years.  During those four years, I was an instructional coach in my school district.  While I loved the job, I really missed being in the classroom with the students on a daily basis.  So.....we started back to school this past Monday.  It truly feels like I was never away! I know that I am where I belong!  It just feels right!
Anyway, that explains where I've been!  I have been stamping too!  This is a project that we did at my late July Stamp Camp and at my Senior Circle class.  We made a summer flower insert and also a Christmas wreath insert.  It is a great frame to be able to change out the picture depending on the season or holiday.  The frame came from our local Dollar General store.  I am not sure where else they are located, but they just seem to have better quality items. Everyone seems to be looking for inexpensive items that they can embellish, alter, or use to add to their projects.  This frame was $1 and it came with a beautiful white ribbon.  You can't see it in the picture because I couldn't get it to stand up correctly for the picture. I have had such fun scouring the store for items, that some of my customers have asked me to have a class with those items.....I am considering Cheap to Chic as the name of the class!  What do think about that idea?
