Goodwill Goodies and New Baby Card

Goodwill Goodies: After going to spin class this morning (man, it was tough to get out of bed, blah!), I went to Target to get 4 more yellow placemats to add to the ones that I got  yesterday.  Now I feel like I have a complete set...ones for people to eat on and then a few leftover to put in the center of the table for the food.  I also got some Snickers and Twix eggs.  I didn't HAVE to get them, but I had a coupon, heh.

On the way home, I went to Goodwill and found these goodies: a framed print for $4.98 and 3 CD wire racks that I thought would work for a jewelry stand.  The price tag said $1.96 for one of them.  The other two didn't have a price tag.  The cashier sold them to me for $0.96 each.  Huh?  That can't be right.  Confused, I asked him what the price was again and he said $0.96 for each ($2.88 total for all 3).  Oook, I'm not going to argue with you. 
I took some black twisty-ties that I had in my kitchen drawer to secure these racks together.  I thought of using my hot glue gun or my Glossy Accents, but that seemed too permanent to me.  Now, most of my dangle earrings as well as some necklaces are displayed nicely.  As for the framed leaf print, I originally put it in my living room, near the kitchen, but since the wall paint is similar to the frame, the art kinda gets lost on the wall.  I moved it up to my bathroom, where the walls are a pale blue.
Card: Here's the card that I made last night for an upcoming baby shower that I'm going to in a few weeks.  Martha Stewart came to my rescue again.
