For $5, I picked up a whole bag of craft supplies and holiday stickers: glitter, edging scissors,brushes, pipecleaners, all that. They also threw in the package of bamboo skewers that I was going to buy anyway.
I was able to salvage about half the pipe cleaners. I tossed the messed-up ones, along with the pink boondoggle and some of the glitter glue. Mr. Fixit took the foam paintbrush and the other brushes.
Now we are equipped for everything from Valentine's Day to Christmas to Talk Like a Pirate Day.
