Hello, my bucket list, friends! Today, I did a Christmas themed craft kit that I got at the Dollar Tree. It was a simple coloring craft kit. The kit came with a cute tote bag and some markers. I loved the cute gingerbread people on the bag. I had a fun time doing this project. I find coloring to be a very relaxing activity. I highly recommend getting simple craft kits, especially for Christmastime!

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I love collecting many different things, but Barbie is one of my favorite things to collect! Wednesday, I got two Barbie items at work, and on Thursday, I opened them along with the Barbie advent calendar that I got on Saturday. The first thing that I opened was the collectible Barbie sticker book. This sticker book came with five packages of stickers. I was very excited when I saw this sticker book on Wednesday because I had not seen it before. I had fun putting the stickers in the book, but I did get more doubles than I thought I would get. I hope to get more stickers for this book soon. I was excited to open the Barbie Advent calendar, and it did not disappoint! I love that the doll has three different colors in her hair. I also love the clothes and little animals that came in this set. I highly recommend this advent calendar for any Barbie fan. The last item I opened was the Barbie pet set. This is a very cute set and I’m glad that I bought it. It came some some vert cute pets and other items. This would also be a great gift for any Barbie fan.

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Yesterday, at work, I bought a new Squishmallow at work. It is a super cute seal that is wearing earmuffs! I love the pictures I took of myself holding my new Squishmallow! There are a lot of Squishmallows on sale at my work right now, and I love buying sale items! I also got a plush snowman and a Rudolph pop-up lollipop holder! Another thing I got was some juice that has fun toys on the top! I love that we sell the juice with toys on top I get excited to see which ones will by on the shelves next. I also got a head massager in our gift section. It was a good day of at work shopping. Oh and I got Starbucks too!

Hello, my bucket list, friends ! Somehow, it is already December 5th ! Yesterday, I had the day off, and during my quick trip into town, I got a peppermint mocha at Starbucks and a candy cane at Safeway. I have loved peppermint for a very long time, and I get excited when I see peppermint flavored treats in stores. I was truly in peppermint bliss yesterday with both of the treats that I got. I also decided to make a snowman wreath with a craft kit that I had gotten at a thrift store. I did not see any directions, so I did my own thing. I’m happy with the way that it turned out even though it is different than the picture on the front of the package. It was a fun and cute craft kit, and I’m glad I put it together yesterday.

Hello, my bucket list, friends! Yesterday, I got two plastic candy candy canes filled with chocolate. These fun plastic candy canes are one of my favorite Christmastime treats. I think it would be fun to fill the candy canes with colored sand or beads to make them into decorations. I love how these treats are only a few dollars, and you get a fun plastic cane that you can keep. I don’t think that I have ever seen art done with these before, so it will be interesting to see what I can come up with.

Hello, my bucket list, friends! There are a lot of Christmas events happening right now, and on Saturday, I got to go to one of my favorites. There is a craft fair that happens every year, and I really like going to it. Last year, I got some soap that had toys in it. I was happy to see that this year, that seller was back at the fair. I got three soaps that had toys in them and one that comes with a toy on top of it. I also got a free gift bag at that booth. My other craft fair finds were a quail sticker and a painting. I had a fun time walking around the craft fair and seeing all the fun things that people were selling. After the craft fair, I went to a Safeway that is different from the one I usually go to . I was very happy when I saw a Barbie Advent calendar there. I was very excited to bring it home with me ! I have not opened it yet, but I will be sure to write about it when I do!

Hello, my bucket list friends, and happy 2nd day of December! For this post, I’m going to tell you about some Christmas themed items I got at work yesterday. The first one that comes to mind is a Christmas themed puzzle cube toy that I got. I’m not very good at doing these, but I do like the Christmas themed pictures on it. I also went to this stand of seasonal items in the beauty department. I got a few items from there, including hair ties. One set of hair ties I got comes in a little ornament, and the other is on a display shaped like a lollipop. Another item I got from there was lotion. I also got a Christmas themed word search book! That was the thing that I was most excited about. Other things I got yesterday were a compact hair brush and socks with snowman faces on them. On top of all that I got some Tic Tacs on sale for a very good price. It was a good shopping day.

Hello, my bucket list friends it’s no secret that I love shopping, and lately, I’ve gotten to do a bunch of it! I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping and it feels really good to say that! Anyway I want to tell you about some of my latest shopping adventures including a trip to one of my favorite book stores so let’s get to it!
Local book store – On Friday, I got the chance to visit this interesting book store that sells both used and new books. I’m still working on my goal of reading 50 books this year, and I hope to accomplish it by reading short children’s books. At the book store, I got two Barbie books and one My Little Pony book. I was happy that I was able to get a few books about things that I enjoy.
Dollar Tree – I had been wanting to go to Dollar Tree to check out their Christmas items, and on Saturday, I did just that. I wasn’t able to go to my favorite location that has a really large selection. However, I was overall happy with the items I got at the smaller store. Right away, I saw the Christmas sweater activity pad that came with stickers. After I got that, I got other items in the Christmas section. those items were a cute snowman décor piece, two Christmas craft kits, two small Christmas teddy bears , and some window stickers that I saw at the last minute when I was about to pay. I also got some items that were not in the Christmas section. I was very excited when I saw these little blind bag animals and I was also excited when I found this large Barbie coloring book. I also got a Barbie toothbrush that comes with a toothbrush protector. It was a good trip to the Dollar Tree ! Oh, and I also got soap!
Breaktime shopping – I’ve done so much of this lately that I might just give myself a headache if I tried to say what I bought on what day. Instead, I will just tell you about some of the fun things that I have recently bought. One of my very favorite things that I got is a Squishmallows blanket. It is so soft and cozy! Some of my other favorite recent finds are press on nails that are Christmas themed , a light up snowman spinner toy, a small shopping cart with candy, a TY Beanie Boo, and some Christmas nail files. My work has so many great Christmas items, and I’ve had a lot of fun buying some of them!
