Always A Work In Progress

Posted on by

Welcome to!

This is my little corner of the internet where I share my craft projects, recipes, and household tips.   Is this your first time here? Maybe you are looking for my super-awesome-can’t-believe-how-easy-it-is-to-make Rumchata Cupcake recipe? (Which is my #1 most pinned recipe on Pinterest).  Did you buy some of my dog treats and want to start making your own?  Well, feel free to explore.  I add new posts from time to time.  Right now my blog is under construction. Well, it’s always a work in progress-just more so now than before…so please excuse the mess!

My recipes are simple and easy to follow.  Lately I have been working on making more healthier versions of snacks and desserts. Most of my crafts fall into 3 basic categories: Easy, Peacock Feather and/or Doctor Who.  I also sell handmade items from time to time (check out my etsy store).

Email Clubs for Freebies and Deals

HuHot-Over the last year I received a coupon for free appetizers and desserts. Birthday(2012) coupon for a free meal, but you have to sign up at least a month in advance of your bday month.

JME’s Miscellaneous Saver Tips

If you have a CVS in your area, definitely sign up for their Extra Care Card and have your primary email set-up for updates from them. I am always getting emails for coupons to save me 20-30% my total order. CVS makes it really easy too, by attaching that online coupon to your saver card. No printing required! is one of my favorite online coupon sites. Whenever you are shopping online or going out to eat, do a search on this site and see if there is a coupon available. I have saved hundreds of dollars and found a lot of free shipping codes by checking there first.

Check for local coupons/deals. You may also receive these coupons in the mail already.
