Booming Business, Super Savings!

I've been shocked and appreciative lately of the the orders I've been getting through my etsy shops. I'm bartering for some amazing products and supplies for some projects I want to do and Christmas gifts. I've also got some large order sales for custom rubber stamps and sidewalk chalk. Which makes me think, I want to have a giveaway! Read lower to participate :)

Super Savings-I've been trying to cut down on my couponing-I promised my husband I wouldn't get any more toothpaste for our stockpile for a while, even if it is free! I loved the deal I got at Target yesterday including free floss and cheap nutrigrain bars.

Used (2) $1 off 2 Manufacturer Coupons
Used (2) $1 off 2 Target Web Coupons (go to

Used $1 off Up & Up Oral Care Item Target Web Coupon (go to

So back to that giveaway idea....

Thinking of the (off and on) nicer weather, I want to offer a

The Prize: A sample pack of handmade sidewalk chalk-fun shapes and colors!
Deadline: Giveaway ends at 12:01AM Monday, March 12, PST.
