Yo-Yos and Hand Sanitizers

Morning! The cold and flu season is coming quick! Some of us have already been suffering from these. I like to send my husband's secretaries little goodies once in a while. I thought I'd send in some hand sanitizer for their desks but I wanted to jazz them up a bit. Here is what I came up with...

I found these 40 oz. hand sanitizers at Costco for only $3.99.

 I jazzed them up with scrapbook paper, ribbon, buttons and yo-yos. I removed the front sticker and used alcohol to remove the sticky. I modge podge the paper on and used glue dots for the ribbon, buttons and yo-yos.

I like how they turned out. I'm sure the guys in the office will just love the prettiness of it all...lol!

Hubby said he did like them. Hope the ladies do too!

I am still working on the giveaway and some Christmas projects. I'm feeling better today and actually getting something done. Now, I'm off to find a new hairdresser...sigh! I still haven't found one, haven't really looked. I don't know about you but I'm a little scared to find someone new in a new state. I don't know anyone really to ask who they go to. Wish me luck! The gray is getting out of hand after 2 months, I'm thinking of going less blond and more brown this time.

Hope you're all having a good day!

I have been a bad, really bad blogger lately. No fabulous posts and no visiting! I have been reading, cleaning, helping a friend paint and getting use to cooler weather. I saw yo-yo's and I knew I had to check this out. That is a great idea. I love the yo yo towel, too. Winter is a great time to make all the yo-yo's I need for the entire year! The color turquoise is a favorite of mine. I love to use a little turquoise in every room. It will look great in your kitchen. I love a bargain! That is a crazy amount for a pair of Steve Madden shoes. I like the shoes, great for walking around and looking for more bargains!
I am making more paper covered boxes for Halloween. They are so much fun. I know you will like making them for Christmas. You did say you were making covered boxes for Christmas? I am going on memeory here and my memory is not what it use to be!
Have a nice day!
