{nifty thrifty sunday #93}

January 20, 2013

Welcome to this week’s {nifty thrifty sunday}!

I apologize for falling off the face of the earth this past week.. Things have been a bit crazy around here. Between spending one evening in the emergency room with my hubby (he’s okay now :) ), buying a new (to us) car and the every day craziness of work, I just didn’t get around to preparing any posts.. I hope it will get better this upcoming week. ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by to party with us this week! I can’t wait to see what you have been up to!

Here are some of my favorites from last week’s {nifty thrifty sunday}:

{3} Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom: Strawberry Heart-Shaped Birthday Cupcakes
