Have I ever told you about Benny O’clock? It’s my favorite time! If I happen to look at the clock at 5:26, I shout out “Happy Benny O’clock!”, like I’ve won the lottery. Why 5:26? Benny was born May 26th. Oh, how I miss that sweet boy! Forever alive in my heart, but man do my arms and eyes ache for him.

Check out the fun, easy and affordable goodie bags I made for my amazing coworkers last Christmas.
Each bag included:
2 tangerines-for health
1 lottery ticket-for wealth
SpongeBob stickers-for happiness
a handful of Hershey Kisses-for love
I printed “May you always be happy, healthy, wealthy, and loved” on red paper and attached the note, with a cute twisty tie that came with the cellophane baggies.
40 lottery tickets=$40
6 bags of tangerines=$35
2 packs of SpongeBob stickers (from the dollar store)=$2
1 giant bag of Hershey’s Kisses (1 for you, 2 for me, 1 for you, 2 for me) =$10
2 packs of cellophane bags (from the dollar store)=$2
And I already had the red paper.
40 thoughtful prezzies for under $90!
I saw this cool pin on Pinterest for taking macro photos with your iPhone and decided to try it.
Derek was kind enough to harvest the lens out of this dollar store laser pointer for me.
A friend donated a bobby pin to the cause.
I followed the step by step instructions provided here.
Then I gathered a few fun things to practice on.
Check out my fortune! Amazing advice. The fact that it came from a cookie makes it even cooler!
The hardest part about this entire thing is keeping a steady hand. I tucked my arm in and braced my elbow on something to counter the hand shake I seem to have but never notice until I am trying to hold perfectly still.
