Christina’s Project Summary: I spent $1 and made the boys a Dino Bookend 🙂 They love Dinos right now. You should have seen the shock and horror on their little faces when I cut the dino in half! They begged for me not too, and were a little mad, but they got over it quickly when they saw the outcome.

My dollar store project went coastal with this fun beach sign. I made this sign using frames and wooden letters from the dollar store. I cheated a little and used some scrap wood I had lying around.
