WOYWW 30th March 2011

My work desk today has small bits on it... I am trying to make up some dangly charms so what you can see are my efforts so far!
The little bottles were a brilliant find last weekend when Chris and I went to a new Dollar store that has just opened in Okotoks, which is about 25 minutes away from Calgary. 
You get 6 wee bottles all filled with decorative beads or glitter and each packet was a $1.00!!  Yes, Tim Holtz fans, eat your heart out... these babies were a bargain!! ;)  Bet they aren't there the next time I go...
Short and sweet this week, I have a pile of chipboard squares that need my attention after I finish playing with the bottles and mini books!!
Pop on over to the Queen of the Desks, Julia, for the list of people who reveal all on a Wednesday.

  20. Although it looks like fun, I don't have the patience to work with such small charms.

  21. It is so nice to find something cheap and useful! Unfortunatly we don't have Dollar shops! Still bargains can always be found! Looking forward to seeing those charms!

  24. You are so lucky having shops like that over there - all ours cheapy shops have is useless dusters and yukky cleaning fluids!
    What a bargain!!

  30. You lucky ducky, what a marvellous bargain. Once you have finished with the contents they would make gorgeous little 'message in a bottle' thingamijigs!

  31. you can get similar over here for a pound,

    I couldn't find wooden cotton reels thoguh so you box has sweetex in instead, but then I think you prefer hemasetas?

    oh well, you'll like Kruger for sure,

    the frog is actually a magnifying glass form Amy - and I have had need of it today because Minxy has stolen my glasses so I am blind,

    my art is gonna be interesting till I get my eyes back...

  39. I love very small things... My Dad once said that I would need lots of cash to visit Hong Kong because the shops were full of little things! Your desk is in full production :-) We have $2 Shops and the Reject Shop here which often have some good finds. Just came for a visit as I didn't manage a WOYWW post last week.
