Friday, was the annual art walk. Here is one thing my friend's mom bought for me:
Saturday, I found a few garage sales, sadly they weren't as exciting as I wanted them to be. I walked 4.32 miles and spent $3.50
Today, I read that Hobby Lobby had the Paper Studio and Stampabilities on sale for 50% off. I needed paper and I've really been wanting a punch lately. I ended up spending about $47, but I found a great deal.
I *needed* 12x12 paper. One of the things I've been trying to do (and mostly failing), is putting a piece of paper in the back of my pocket letters, so my partners can't see right away what goodies I put inside for them. I didn't have a lot patterned papers to do this with, so I picked up a 12x12 paper pack today. I also wanted some colored cardstock, but because of the great find in the picture below, I put it back.
The cupcake stickers are for someone's birthday. I have no reason for buying the travel stickers. I wanted more washi and for some reason picked up this coffee set, I don't even like coffee, the other one has tiny +'s on it. They are foiled, which I love. The 'snail mail' stamp set has a snail and an envelope. I've been looking for an envelope stamp/stickers for awhile. I saw this set a few weeks ago when I was here, and wanted it, this time it was 50% off so I picked it up. I've also been wanting a punch lately. I found some punchouts someone had sent me and started using those for handmade embellishments. I really liked the smaller circle, so I bought a 1" circle punch today. I have been punching circles out of sticker backs since I got home.
Here is the great find:
I've been watching some videos where people are buying the Project Life starter sets. They are marked at $29.99, the person I've been watching has been using her 40% coupon to get them for $17.99. I found this set on the bottom shelf of the clearance section, I couldn't find anything wrong with it, and when I saw the price I didn't think twice. I put a few things back and got that. I've been wanting Project Life cards for awhile, I didn't realize there were so many multiples in the set. I love it, though!
I can't pass by a monster, I love them. The rest of the items in the picture are for someone's birthday.
I also went to JoAnn's. I haven't been there for awhile, I just never found anything to buy there. Last Monday, mom went there for something, so I tagged along. I found their clearance aisle, which wasn't that impressive, but most items were marked at $0.50. Most of what I bought went into the picture below.
So, I went back today and picked up a few more things that also went into the picture below. I did find one thing for my friend's birthday:
This is what I was talking about. Every time I've bought something fun/crafty, I've been putting it in this bag for my birthday present to myself. Today I decided it was full enough:
